"I suppose that when I'm building a character, it's usually related to what their family is like and who their parents are, as well as I grew up - that nurture side."
"Entering the acting world, it's a very lonely life. You all get so close and then you promise to email and text each other, but you never do. So, that idea of being a sort of lone traveler, I can definitely associate with."
"I want to be one of those names that producers want to hire because you put bums on seats."
"You can train and train until you are blue in the face but you've got to diet, you've got to have that leanness because if you are not lean, your abs won't show. Of course, the training has to be put in, but then you've to shed all the fat and keep the fat off. And that's how you get an eight pack."
His dream role is to play Alexander the Great.
Likes rugby, but no longer plays due to injuries.
Author Stephanie Meyer based the description of Edward Cullen in her Twilight novels on him and even lobbied for him to play the role before Robert Pattinson was cast, but he was considered too old to play a 17-year-old by the time the film was produced.
