Oh my God. Nothing against the magazines (teen magazines) because they definitely have their purposes, but I don't want to answer questions like "Do you have a girlfriend" and "What is your favorite color". Answering more adult questions is more intriguing and that's the vibe I'd like to give off.

I don't seek attention. If anything I'd rather blend in, remain anonymous.

I'd love to hold a koala. They sleep 22 hours a day, eat eucalyptus leaves and just hang out. I want to spend some time with that guy.

Enjoy every moment

Sometimes I'm an ass, sometimes I'm sweet as peaches

I'm tough on the outside and soft on the inside... I'm really a shy guy

I'm a homebody, I'd rather be in the kichen cooking than hanging out in a bar.

The Godfather" 1 and 2, "Goodfellas," "The Matrix" - those are movies I can sit down and watch over and over again,

(on his personal motto) "Enjoy every moment.

Sometimes I'm an ass, sometimes I'm sweet as peaches.

Every job built my career in some way or made me grow as a person or I got to meet someone great. I had one line on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but I met Will Smith and he took 20 minutes out of his day to talk to the kid with one line. To this day, I think that guy is amazing because of that.

I mainly have good fan experiences although one girl did come up and tell me that she hated me. I think she meant my character, though!

My sisters and mom raised me respect women and open doors for them.
