It's Not About Working Anymore, Its About Doing Work I Can Be Proud Of.
If You Spend Any Time With A Man, You'll Realize That We're All Still Little Boys.
I'm Not Afraid Of Anything. That's Just The Way I Am.
I've Always Wanted To Race Cars, Ever Since I Was A Young Boy, As I Think A Lot Of Guys Have.
Everyone Has An Opinion.
There's More To Life Than Movies.
I Love Doing The Action Stuff. It's Soooo Much Fun!
Basically, You're Selling A World As An Actor, Right? I Mean It's Like Any Sales Person: If You Believe In Your Product, You Know Your Product, You Sell It A Lot Better.
You Know, I'm A Pretty Mellow Guy. I'm Pretty Easy-going. I See Everyone's Perspective.
I Sometimes Struggle, Because My Job Is Like The Antithesis Of What Surfing Is All About. Surfing's Simple. It's Real.
I Live By 'Go Big Or Go Home.' That's With Everything. It's Like Either Commit And Go For It Or Don't Do It At All. I Apply That To Everything. I Apply That To Relationships, I Apply That To Like Sports, I Apply That To Everything. That's What I Live By. That's How I Like It.
If I Lost Weight, I'd Be Two-dimensional!
I Could Take You For A Walk On The Beach And I Could Point Out Just About Any Creature And Give You Their Latin Names.
I Have An Airplane Hangar With 17 Cars In It. That's No Joke. I Have A 'Half Pipe' In There, Too - You Know, Like A Big Ramp, Where I Skateboard. It's Awesome. It's The Ultimate Fantasy.
That's One Thing About Hollywood. People Don't Always Want What's Real. People Always Want A Little More. So For Me, It's A Compromise. Here You Go, That Hyper-reality.
I Used To Believe In One True Soul Mate, But Not Anymore. I Believe You Can Have A Few.
I Remember When I First Came Around, The Computer-generated Stuff Was Pretty Wicked. I Was Like, 'Wow!' But I Feel Like Then For The Longest Time, We Saw So Much Of It, After A While, You Might As Well Just Be Watching An Animated Movie.
I Think My Mom Put It Best. She Said, 'Little Girls Soften Their Daddy's Hearts.'
I Want To Have The Freedom To Do Whatever I Want.
When I Was Younger, The Pressure Was Just Being Cool. I Never Thought Of Myself As A Cool Guy. I Always Thought Of Myself As More Of The Goofy Guy.
I Wish I Could Be Behind The Wheel For Every Stunt.
I'm Not The Kind Of Guy Who's Taking Advantage Of My Position.
You Know, All That Really Matters Is That The People You Love Are Happy And Healthy. Everything Else Is Just Sprinkles On The Sundae.
I Hope I'm In A Position To Make Stuff That I Really Want To Make As Opposed To Stuff That I Just Have To Make For Money Reasons, Or To Sustain A Certain Marquee Value.
I'm Into Being A Dad, That's Where My Focus Is Most Of The Time. I'm An Actor That's My Job, But It's Not My Life. I Have A Lot Of Other Interests Too.
I Don't Go For The Flash And Panache.
My Family's Really Close.
My Parents Never Looked At My Acting As A Career. They Saw It As A Way To Help Provide For The Household.
My Father's A Protector. My Father's Old-school. He's A Cowboy.
My Mom's Hot. I Mean She's Old, But My Mom's Out Of Control.
I'd Like To Live On Horseback And Just Be A Cowboy.
I'm Not The Least Bit Polished, I Come From A Blue Collar Background And I Never Thought I Could Feel Comfortable Around The English.
I Was Definitely Ahead Of My Friends. I Was French-kissing Girls Way Before Anybody Else Was.
Surfing Soothes Me, It's Always Been A Kind Of Zen Experience For Me. The Ocean Is So Magnificent, Peaceful, And Awesome. The Rest Of The World Disappears For Me When I'm On A Wave.
I'm Not Affected By Violence The Way Some People Are. I Don't Know Why, But I Enjoy That Intensity.
I'm Really Close To All Of My Family.
My Mom Was Always Really Healthy And Cautious About Her Diet, So I'm Not A Big Sugar Guy.
I'm A Pretty Agile Guy, Especially Being Taller And Having Done Martial Arts From About The Age Of 13, But Parkour Is One Of Those Sports That I Wish I'd Discovered Sooner. When My Nephew First Showed Me, I Thought, 'Damn - I'm Too Old For This.'
I Love Long-range Rifle Shooting. I Like Anything That Deals With Precision. I Also Find That With Archery. On My Ranch, I Have My Own Range With 3-d Targets Of Animals And Hay Bales From Different Distances.
Surfing Big Waves Is Not An Extreme Sport To Me. I Fall Off, Tumble Down, And Come Up. My Heart's Racing Because I'm Thinking I Almost Drowned, And I Thank God I Can Breathe Again, But I Always Think, 'What Am I Hitting?' Water.
Thing Is, I Went To A Born-again Christian High School, Was Brought Up In A Traditional Mormon Family Where These Ideas About Parenting Are Of Structure And Sacrifice. To Think Outside Of That Idea Of Family And Parenting That I've Grown Up With Is Tough But Also Very Freeing.
My Motto Is, You Have To Get In A Sport A Day.
What I've Found Recently Is The Heart, The Soul, Whatever You Want To Call It, It Doesn't Differentiate: If You Really Live The Experience Making A Movie, It's The Same As Living It In Real Life, As Crazy As It Sounds.
I'm Brian A Lot More Than I'm Paul Walker, Which Is Awesome. When I Hear, 'Hey Paul Walker!' My Hair Stands Up On The Back Of My Neck. It's Uncomfortable. But When I Hear, 'It's Brian!' It's Cool. I Like Brian.
I Have Friends That Are Super Talented, That Are Far More Talented Than I Am In Certain Areas, But It Just Doesn't Happen For Them. Sometimes You Feel Guilty For Your Success Because You Know People Who Deserve It Way More.
Maybe This Is Just Horrible Bad, But I Think I've Had Enough Successes To Where The Journey Is More Important To Me Now. There's No Guarantee, No Matter What. We Get One Run In Life.
I Grew Up Hunting And Fishing. I've Always Been Into Archery. I've Always Been Into Cars... In My Family, That Was Just Stuff We Did. That's Just The Way It Was.
I Wanna Work With Good People. I Don't Want To Work With Screaming, Yelling Directors Who've Got Daddy Issues. I Just Don't Want To Deal With Those Guys.
I'm A Science Guy. I'm A Geek. I Love Geology And Botany And Marine Science. I Thought Maybe I'd Be A Professional Guide, Or Maybe Even A Park Ranger, Working For The Department Of Fish And Game.
The Dream Is To Have It All. Who Says You Can't Have Your Cake And Eat It Too? Live This Life, That Life, This Life, You Know? You Only Live One Time - I Want To Get It All In.
