I want to keep working with the best, keep going and be a better actor each time I go and dive into something.
On fame, wild nights out in Hollywood: There's no need to get involved in all that if you are in it for the right purpose.
When I'm not acting, I try to be normal, play golf, play hockey. It's funny because you're in this little bubble when you're working - you don't read books, you don't really keep up with the news, you're just living that life.
I would do 'John Carter' again tomorrow. I'm very proud of 'John Carter.' Box office doesn't validate me as a person, or as an actor.
Living on the subway in New York City was by far the lowest point. That's where I slept for weeks. But that's a different low. Not 'I don't know if I'll ever make it as an actor'. It was pure survival.
I admire an actor that can do a lot with doing nothing really, for the most part. I like doing a lot by doing so little.
