One thing I hope I'll never be is drunk with my own power. And anybody who says I am, will never work in this town again.

But you know you can't be a star at home.

The money can be a hindrance to someone like me because the danger is that you start thinking 'Is that a $20 million take?'. That kind of thing and being self-critical.

I really believe in the philosophy that you create your own universe. I'm just trying to create a good one for myself.

Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.

I haven't been as wild with my money as somebody like me might have been. I've been very safe very conservative with investments. I don't blow money. I don't have a ton of houses. I know things can go away. I've already had that experience.

I know this sounds strange but as a kid I was really shy. Painfully shy. The turning point was freshman year when I was the biggest geek alive. No one I mean no one even talked to me.

I want to be the greatest actor that ever lived frankly. I'd love that. But I don't need to be. I just want to be here. That's it.

It's hard for anybody who's been with me not to feel starved for affection when I'm making love to my ideas. Maybe it's not meant for me to settle down and be married.

I try to do something the audience might not have seen before. Like, if I'm gonna kiss a girl I wanna kiss her like a girl has never been kissed. Like, maybe I would kick her legs out from under her and catch her right before she hits the ground and then kiss her.

My report card always said 'Jim finishes first and then disrupts the other students'.

My focus is to forget the pain of life. Forget the pain mock the pain reduce it. And laugh.

I don't make it in regular channels and that's okay for me.

I just want to be myself.

I used to draw a lot. If my mother would ask me to do something else I'd have a hairy conniption. I'd just go crazy.

I wake up some mornings and sit and have my coffee and look out at my beautiful garden and I go 'Remember how good this is. Because you can lose it.'

For some reason I did something where I realized I could get a reaction. That was when I broke out of my shell at school because I really didn't have any friends or anything like that and I just kind of was going along and then finally I did this zany thing and all of a sudden I had tons of friends.

I tend to stay up late not because I'm partying but because it's the only time of the day when I'm alone and don't have to be performing.

Ever since I started to get recognition I've picked out certain fans and reverse-stalked them.

Life opens up opportunities to you and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them.
