I like an interesting movie even if it’s controversial or offensive, depending on your taste.
I just want to be in good things that I want to see, and I want to work with talented people who are smarter than myself.
It helps if you don’t date other actors, but actresses are beautiful. How can you say no?
I am super-proud to have a sort of famous character in my background that if you’re a certain age, he was probably a part of your youth. I think that’s pretty cool.
I worry that I can come off smarmy. I wonder if I was listening to myself if I’d want to kick my own ass.
Well, I guess most people would only know me from The O.C. I did a few episodes of Gilmore Girls before that. I was also a client on a lot of lawyer shows.
I like to always have humour in whatever I do.
I want to work with intelligent people and look for scripts that I think are intelligent and surprising.
I’m a fake intellectual.
If I don’t direct a movie at some point, I’ve failed personally.
It’s bad writing, however naturalistic it’s written, that’s where you have to do your best acting.
It’s very important to me to love what I do. It was important to me to find a career that I truly enjoy. You can find something that sort of excites you, that’s half the battle of life.
I wish I came from a more pure place. I don’t have something to say from the bottom of my soul. I just know how to take stuff I like and repackage it in a slightly different way.
I have been in teen shows for years, so doing that stuff – kissing – is kind of commonplace and not a big deal. It was way more cool just because it was Meg Ryan.
I always enjoyed movies and in hindsight I realise how captivating they were to me.
