In love, we have to dare everything if we really love.

I knew everything and received everything. But real happiness, is giving.

I am not a star. I am an actor. I have been fighting for years to make people forget that I am just a pretty boy with a beautiful face. It's a hard fight, but I will win it. I want the public to realize that above all I am an actor, a very professional one who loves every minute of being in front of the camera.

I have the worst possible character and am constantly hurting people, especially those who love me most. I learned very young that no one's going to tolerate me. I either charm people or they detest me.
