#Quote
1 [on his stepmother, Eve Ensler] She was that one person who changes your life. I didn't even know who I was, but she got me, and we got each other. I'm totally grateful to her, because I feel like I'm her Frankenstein.
2 I can't really say that I ever believed in any of that business about fate and soul mates and the one really perfect person until I met my wife... As corny as it seems, it was really love at first sight. It was like, 'Boom!' There it is, you know it, and everything else fades away.
3 My theory about actors is we're all walking milk cartons. Expirations dates everywhere.
