But this is a little different. This is the adult acting. This is a different crowd. It's more work and more good work. That's it. People will have their opinion regardless.
Respected, I almost want to be revered, that's what I'm chasing.
I want my audience to know me for my work, not because of who I'm dating or what drugs I'm on or what club I went to.
I didn't know my dad for a long time. My dad was on drugs and my dad was at the VA Hospital, my dad was off in his own world selling drugs or using them or there would be crack heads in the house or whatever it would be.
When you look at golf films before us they're all - garbage or satire. A lot of sports films tend to vilify the opposition. Where the opposition becomes this big angry monster, so big you can't beat him.
My family, my parents are hippies.
If I have enough money to eat I'm good.
You never really meet a human being until you live with them or know them for awhile, so this is my clown and they understand that and so these interviews don't bother them.
I was the only white kid in my neighborhood for most of my youth even in high school, so reverse racism was just as apparent as racism.
No, I was an unknown when I walked in that room. He didn't know who I was from a fly on the wall.
I've been in fights, but that doesn't make me cool or like a tough guy or more interesting actor, I'm not proud of it.
I turned down twelve films last year... Huge money films, but I had no respect for the writer or the work.
And if you're a golfer and you watch a golf film and Matt Damon swing, and it's not great, then you're not going to believe in the golf story, you're not going to believe in the rest of the film. That's the whole movie, so if that swing looks like crap, the movie's crap.
We did this two-week boot camp before we filmed the movie. I got to know everybody in the group and we became friends. We got really tight throughout those two weeks.
So it's kind of nervous to be in this situation, but at the same time you look at all those actors and the work that they've done, I've been in bigger films than all of them and still kept my integrity and still kept my respect.
And yeah, my handicap was down to a 10 when we were at the thick of it. I trained for six or seven months, golfing every day for six hours, seven days a week, with eight trainers. It was intense.
I don't have to live this lavish lifestyle.
You can't buy back your respect; you can't buy back your career. You only get one, so I don't want to mess that up.
There's never been a parent in my life.
I don't know, I just want to be happy. I could be in a hole somewhere. Or I could completely lose it and be some hippy living in the woods with my dad.
No, I come for a hippy lifestyle, it's very open; my parents are both hippies.
They're very, uh, you know, I don't come from the suburbs and a jolly, Disney type of lifestyle. I come from something totally different. And they're cool and bare minimum so it's not always a money issue for me.
Now my dad is with me, traveling with me and a big part of this whole thing is I like to mix it up a little bit, you know. Who gets to take their father on a private jet across the country and stay in first class hotels? So we're enjoying it, but I'd stop if it's not possible.
I think there's a form of honesty, because I used to be very honest with the press, and then it backfired on me, and I understood it.
My neighborhood was rough, but I live a great life now. I don't fight that much now. I don't look for it anyway, but if someone hits your mother, whether you're a star, an accountant, or an astronaut or anything... I mean it's your mother, so I lost my mind.
