‘The Movie’ is something that I made with some friends of mine in L.A. My friend, Luke Eberl, is the filmmaker. He shot this movie and asked a bunch of his friends to be involved with it.

The first job I ever had was singing in a jazz club when I was like 15 with my friend, and we earned like 70 bucks. We were like, ‘Oh my God!’
My favorite type of pet has always been a dog. They’re loyal, kind, and offer endless affection. My friend Eric says, ‘The more people I meet, the more I like my dog.’ Funny thought.

My friend Liam Neeson has managed to carve out a great place in the industry for himself and is still doing action movies at 64 years old. He’s my hero. I use him as a template. My middle kid, Liam, is named after him. He’s one of the coolest guys in Hollywood.

So we had the same manager, and we started auditioning for things and doing commercials when we were 16.
I didn’t date my wife in high school, but she was definitely by far the coolest woman there. She was definitely the most beautiful, but she also marched to the beat of her own drummer.

If anyone has seen success and failure on a global stage, it’s my friend Steve Forbes.
After I defended my title the first time when I beat Sarah Kaufman, I went back to my room, and my friend ordered all these trays of hot wings. They came into the room, and the little hotel sheet thing was draped over it, and I go to open it up, and it’s breaded and boneless. I cried.
I was a big Guns N’ Roses fan when I was seven. My friend who lived across the street had long dark curly hair and I had long blonde hair, so I’d dress up as Axl and she’d be Slash, and we’d rock out in front of the mirror singing ‘Patience.’
