I actually told Juliette Lewis this
00:04
'cause she was at my callback for Rabbit Hole,
00:06
and it was like the first time
00:07
I'd ever been in the room with,
00:08
you know, an actress or an actor,
00:09
and I said, The Other Sister was a really
00:12
sad, sad movie for me.
00:15
My favorite love story?
00:17
Oh, boom Titanic.
00:18
Titanic, for an 11 year old boy
00:21
was a very special moment
00:23
'cause I had my first girlfriend,
00:24
it was three hours long in the dark
00:26
away from my parents, so I also got my first kiss
00:29
during Titanic.
00:30
My cinematic crush is Reese Witherspoon.
00:33
She's been my cinematic crush since
00:37
I mean, I don't know how old I was
00:38
when Election came out, but you know,
00:39
between that and Sweet Home Alabama,
00:42
you know, Legally Blonde,
00:44
she's just, you know.
00:46
And then obviously as I've grown as an actor,
00:48
I've really come to, you know,
00:49
admire her and really enjoy the work
00:51
she does, but for a while,
00:52
it was just purely her face that I was into,
00:54
and I actually dated a girl in high school
00:57
just because she kinda looked like Reese a little bit.
