Just like food, you could think peanut butter is your favorite food for 5,000 years and then be like, ‘I actually like burgers better’, you know? I was just trying to say that kids and people in general don’t have to label themselves and say, ‘I’m straight’ or ‘I’m gay‘ or ‘I’m whatever.’

I actually have this fantasy of giving up my cell phone.

Treating people fairly and with civility is not a bad thing… It would be good for our country if political leaders actually took that to heart.

If you’re truly depicting human behavior in an honest way, it is a lot of miscommunication, non-communication, paranoia, passive aggressiveness. People don’t finish sentences. They don’t say what they mean. They lie to each other. They take credit for things that are actually other people’s ideas.
I don’t think I’ve ever actually written from inspiration, actually had a song just go, ‘Bing!’ I only recall that happening to me twice – once was with ‘Terrapin’ and the other was ‘Wharf Rat.’ I mean, that’s twice in a lifetime of writing!
I actually started off majoring in computer science, but I knew right away I wasn’t going to stay with it. It was because I had this one professor who was the loneliest, saddest man I’ve ever known.

I didn’t start auditioning until my 10th birthday when I auditioned for ‘Matilda’ The Musical in London! It was actually the first time I realized that it was a career I could pursue.
No, I’m not a vegetarian. I do eat that way. I actually eat vegan quite a lot. I feel better when I eat that way, and I think there’s been a lot of proof that’s come up over the last however many years, that you can’t deny, I don’t think, that meat or dairy aren’t all that good for us.
It’s intriguing to me, when I see a horror script, or something like that, that’s actually original. I think that’s why I love ‘Stranger Things,’ because it’s not just horror, it’s everything, and when they use horror it’s right.

Talking about ‘stopping globalization’ is unrealistic – and probably not what anti-globalization protesters actually want.
There’s nothing scarier than silence. A lot of horror movies lean on hits and score to try and create tension, which actually does the opposite.

I think of ‘Liar & Spy’ as completely different and actually not at all like a ‘When You Reach Me’-type story. I feel like ‘Liar & Spy’ has a much quieter, more emotional revelation.
When you’re 50 you start thinking about things you haven’t thought about before. I used to think getting old was about vanity – but actually it’s about losing people you love. Getting wrinkles is trivial.

If children are not introduced to music at an early age, I believe something fundamental is actually being taken from them.

It’s actually a smarter crime because imagine if you rob a bank, or you’re dealing drugs. If you get caught you’re going to spend a lot of time in custody. But with hacking, it’s much easier to commit the crime and the risk of punishment is slim to none.
Our ethos for ‘Now You See Me 2’ was that everything in the movie at least had the potential to be done in real life, and I’d say over 90% of it was actually done in-camera with no CGI. Of course, movies like this are always going to be bound by the rules of Hollywood, being there‘s going to be enhancements of CGI.
What people actually refer to as research nowadays is really just Googling.
I’m so jealous of people who have crushes on people they go to school with or work with. That’s such a blessing. You actually get to see them all the time and spend time with them.

As technology evolves, it manipulates our culture, and there’s a huge opportunity to push ourselves further. I think it actually makes ourselves maybe more human, or at least human in a different way, that we can connect together in amazingly different ways and powerful new ways.

Pleasure without God, without the sacred boundaries, will actually leave you emptier than before. And this is biblical truth, this is experiential truth. The loneliest people in the world are amongst the wealthiest and most famous who found no boundaries within which to live. That is a fact I’ve seen again and again.
Who would have ever thought that, within a couple months of getting into the WWE, that I’d be wrestling in the main event for the world championship? Then, nine months after getting here, actually being the world champion.

My mom worked at McDonald‘s, and she decided she wanted to make more money, so she got into the management program at McDonald’s. And that’s how you move up the chain.

He’s an actor, so whenever he goes to an audition, he can look down, see it, and it gives him confidence. It was a great thing to pass on.
My goal was never to just create a company. A lot of people misinterpret that, as if I don’t care about revenue or profit or any of those things. But what not being just a company means to me is not being just that – building something that actually makes a really big change in the world.
I never understood why when you died, you didn’t just vanish, everything could just keep going on the way it was only you just wouldn’t be there. I always thought I’d like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph, and no name. Well, actually, I’d like it to say ‘figment.’

The most important relationship you have in life is the one you have with yourself. And then after that, I’d say once you have that, it may be hard work, but you can actually design your life.

It felt good to actually have a decent swim.
I don’t like to just talk about nothing, or less than nothing. If it’s something interesting, I’m fine with it, but, ‘Hey, Zack, how is your day?’ People ask that, and somebody actually tells them what happened in their day? I don’t have any real interest in that.

When I was at ‘Newsweek’ magazine – which, you know, this really sounds like I walked four miles in the snow to school – but I started at ‘Newsweek’ magazine in 1963, which was before the Civil Rights Act of 1964. So it was actually legal to discriminate against women, and ‘Newsweek’ did.
The first perfume I remember actually having myself is Daisy.
Oftentimes, when we think of 3D, we think of things coming out of the screen, but actually, you’ve got this zero, this negative space, what they call the negative space, which is the scene, what’s being filmed in the positive space of the audience.

In today’s time, writing stuff that actually happened is touch-and-go, because you don’t want to be too personal. If you are, then it probably won’t relate to a mass audience. A lot of times you have to make it sound like it’s about everybody else, but you really went through it.
