On his former acts of heroism:
“When I was 13, I saw a friend being picked on by a group of pretty scary people. The guy was put on his knees and humiliated. No way could I have taken any of them, but I walked over an helped him to his feet and said, “Let”s go.” And we left. Maybe my stepping in made them realize how horrible it was.”
On avoiding comical questions:
“Being in a funny movie doesn”t make me have to answer dumb questions. It has nothing to do with who I am.”
On his survival skills:
“I care a lot about people, especially the people I value in my life, so I”d be thoughtful and not just look out for myself. I”ve definitely tried to make people”s lives better when they”re going through really hard times, and I think that”s the most accessible form of heroic behavior.”
On his fighting skills:
“I earned a brown belt in karate, so I could beat the sh*t out of people, but that”s hypothetical, since it hasn”t been tested in a long time. Also, I played rugby, so I guess I could scrum, if that came up in an apocalyptic situation.”
On standing up for himself when he was younger:
“I have been in a few fistfights. One was a draw, but the other, I was on the school bus in seventh grade and this mean sack of shit we all called Hillbilly was flicking everyone”s ears. But when he flicked my ears, I pushed him, then he came back and punched me in the face, and I went and pulled some kind of Bruce Lee s*** where I pulled myself up between two of the seats and kicked him in the face and he went flying back. It was amazing. It was great. Also, I used to be able to run fast, but not now. Hmm. I don”t think I”d be too good in the apocalypse.”
