I'm probably not going to get married unless I live with somebody for 10 or 20 years. But these people (Romeo and Juliet) took a chance and they did it. We don't have the balls that Romeo did.
The role of Rimbaud is one of the most important roles to play for a young actor.
I've always been spontaneous and outgoing... I've tried lots of things so I've got some good life experiences, which is great 'cause it means I've got lots of material to work with as an actor.
With Romeo and Juliet, you're talking about two people who meet one night, and get married the same night. I believe in love at first sight-but it hasn't happened to me yet.
To believe in love, to be ready to give up anything for it, to be willing to risk your life for it, is the ultimate tragedy.
The good thing about acting is that it always keeps you on your toes... It's not like any other job where you can go in and do the same thing as yesterday.
If you can do what you do best and be happy, you're further along in life than most people.
I've never been Romeo who meets a girl and falls for her immediately. It's been a much slower process for me each time I've gone into a relationship.
I am friends with Demi. Don't believe anything you read.
I've managed to keep a clear head and remain sane in this business because I remain a kid off-camera.
The best thing about acting is that I get to lose myself in another character and actually get paid for it... It's a great outlet. I'm not really sure who I am - it seems I change every day.
I prefer ordinary girls - you know, college students, waitresses, that sort of thing. Most of the girls I go out with are just good friends. Just because I go out to the cinema with a girl, it doesn't mean we are dating.
My mother is a walking miracle.
School, I never truly got the knack of. I could never focus on things I didn't want to learn.
If I want to go to a party with a few male friends, it doesn't mean I'm gay.
Everywhere I go, somebody is staring at me, I don't know if people are staring because they recognize me or because they think I'm a weirdo.
Meryl Streep does things I would never have thought possible... Her presence on screen is outstanding.
The first kiss I had was the most disgusting thing in my life. The girl injected about a pound of saliva into my mouth, and when I walked away I had to spit it all out.
Portraying emotionally ill characters gives me the chance to really act.
I couldn't deal with playing a character who rides motorcycles and has a leather jacket and is a tough kid, y'know?
Don't think for a moment that I'm really like any of the characters I've played. I'm not. That's why it's called 'acting'.
My career should adapt to me. Fame is like a VIP pass wherever you want to go.
I got attention by being funny at school, pretending to be retarded, and jumping around with a deformed hand.
I get a friend to travel with me... I need somebody to bring me back to who I am. It's hard to be alone.
When a role for a young guy is being offered to me, I think of River Phoenix. It feels like a loss.
