The thing about being an actor is that you're acting. It's not that big of a deal of to play someone different from yourself.
With Scarlett Johansson, I always thought she was pretty, but then when I heard her sing, there was just something about her voice that made her really, really attractive to me. And I think she would be fun to hang out with.
I grew up watching movies and television, and one day when I was really young I told my mom I wanted to become an actor, and she was really supportive and got me involved in local theater and commercials. From there I moved up to auditioning for movies and television.
I play drums and guitar, I snowboard, I do martial arts and acrobatics. I go to the movies every Friday.
I never really do the New Year's Resolution thing. I kind of just try to stay focused, not get too distracted, and do the best I can. And that's something I like to tell myself every year around New Year's.
I love puppies, and I love animals in general. Besides that, I do martial arts: extreme martial arts. I also play real guitar and drums, and sing. And I'm taking some college classes, hoping to major in English and creative writing.
I was home-schooled for my entire high school experience, so I never went to prom.
You can't just look at someone and guess their sexuality. There's no point in assuming that every gay man has just one personality type.
'Prom' is a movie that follows a bunch of high-schoolers' lives leading up to the prom, the climax of the movie. It focuses all their struggles and the social pressures that prom creates on their lives.
I think the gay community, just like anybody, should be represented in all forms and all types.
I really enjoy dancing. When there's music around, I can't help it; I start dancing, especially when I'm with friends.
