Annie and I had already had sex on film in Brokeback Mountain, so I wasnt too nervous. Theres something about the way Annie and I both work which is inherently very musical. Its all about rhythm. Theres a rhythm to writing, theres a rhythm to sports and theres a rhythm to sex.
If you have a real relationship with someone in real life they will call you out on it if you are being fake. I have worked with my sister in movies before and I can't pull anything with her. She knows when I'm faking and when I'm not. She has caught me out before...in real life too. That is all my sister does! That is her primary job in my life.
Even as an actor, I think like a storyteller. My parents raised us to look at the script.
I never did anything this intensive before to change my body. Its a physical role. And when I commit to playing a part, its 110 per cent.
The reason why most video games movies havent been successful up until now is the fact that most of the action that takes place is stuff that weve seen before [in the game], but hasnt had a reason in the story line that makes sense. So, in this movie we decided that everything the prince did in the movie had to have a reason. If he were going to jump on a wall and run over to get away from somebody, or hes going to jump from building to building, there had to be an obstacle. It had to be based on something that he had learned, or based in the story line. Most of the time you just see really cool stunts and people doing really cool things, but you dont know why. Our action all ties back into the ultimate story.
I'm in the business of helping stories get told, and I love this story. People don't say to me, When you were in Proof, were you afraid to play a mathematician? Or, Was it scary to play a Marine in Jarhead? Why is that?
Heath almost broke my nose in a kissing scene. He grabs me and he slams me up against the wall and kisses me. And then I grab him and I slam him up against the wall and I kiss him. And we were doing take after take after take. I got the shit beat out of me.
For a month I did a crazy circuit: running five miles, swimming for 20 minutes, riding a bike for 35 miles, and lifting weights without resting. Then we went to boot camp. On-set we would all work out together and do push-ups between scenes.
Comedy is really what I enjoy the most. And it's what I find hardest. Finding the comedy in a situation is always the hardest thing, and I think as an actor you should always try and find the hardest thing.
Don't listen to what anybody says except the people who encourage you. If it's what you want to do and it's within yourself, then keep going and try to do it for the rest of your life.
I promise that, one day, everything's going to be better for you.
We were talking about the kissing in the movie just recently. Clearly, it's pretty challenging material, but Ang said two men herding sheep was far more sexual than two men having sex on screen.
The best thing that I got was rehearsing with my father. It was always about the process of figuring things out, and trying something new, and having another take on something and keeping it alive.
It's funny to me that people find other people getting coffee really interesting, or walking their dog in the dog park.
If you're going to spend seven months of your life - for me seven months, for Roland Emmerich, 3, 4, 5 years of his life - doing something, I think you have to have something to say.
I'm like, 'What world am I living in?' Aren't movies made to have something to say? Why make a movie if you don't have something to say? What are you doing it for? Are you doing it because you want to make a lot of money?
I'm going to continue doing what I want to do. And if it means I want to go and make a big movie, if it has something to say, I will want to make it. I don't want to spend my life wasting my time. If it's a big movie, I want to do it. If it's a small movie, I want to do it.
I grew up in a family where many of our close friends were gay couples. As well as that, every man goes through a period of thinking they're attracted to another guy.
Every man goes through a period of thinking they're attracted to another guy.
Crazy people don't sit around wondering if they're nuts.
