- "What you want is your demographic to get, eventually, up to your own mating age. Mine keeps getting lower and lower. Like, Punk'd was 13 year old girls and now I'm going straight to 7 year old's."
- "I've had plenty of crappy jobs, but the only job I've ever really dedicated myself to has been acting. It's my life."
