Enrolled as a film major at Brigham Young University, graduating in 1994.
Took three years off after high school to surf in Hawaii and served a religious mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Switzerland and France. He has since lapsed out of Mormonism.
Bought a motorcycle after learning to ride one for Erin Brockovich (2000).

Was raised in Cupertino, California and as a teenager, lived with his family in England and Sydney, Australia.
[on his height] Normal...About 6 feet tall and a buck seventy.
[re his affection for Cary Grant] I always feel like he's so good that he was not regarded as an actor. Maybe he didn't have the range that people expect a modern actor to have, but there's never been anybody like him.
(2011 quote, on quitting drinking) I couldn't be happier with that decision. I recommend it to anybody. I did not go to AA...I haven't had a drink for seven or eight years. I've changed my lifestyle. I don't go out. That's not just because of drinking, it's because of getting older. I've outgrown it, plus all my friends are married and have kids. I'm very interested in my health and I want to live the rest of my life very healthily. I feel 100 per cent in command of myself, so, when I get up, I never have to ask, 'where have I been? What have I said?'
[on working with Heath Ledger] My experience was wonderful. It was the experience of...loving to act myself, to watch somebody who loved his character and had the discipline to make a bold creation. I found myself trying to keep up with him and I was also admiring him at the same time. I watched him off-camera and on-camera, as an actor, to see his process. After the day was over, I shook his hand and said, 'That's why I'm an actor - 'cos of guys like you'. So I treasure that time with him...He was brilliant, he was brilliant to watch, he was brilliant to see on a daily basis, on set in the makeup trailer, when we were putting on our makeup together. I was doing Harvey's and he was doing the Joker's and trying to figure it out. If you would have said to Heath, 'Hey dude, this is a superhero movie, why don't you chill?' You just wouldn't say that to him. And I don't think that the movie would be as special if he did, so I think we all have to strive to those standards.
I'm not prone to doing science fiction, it's not my bag.
[on his job working at a movie theater in Sydney, Australia) I thought Crocodile Dundee (1986) was an inspirational film, I loved that movie. I'm serious. I saw it hundreds of times.
(On his nomadic upbringing) I came back from summer camp and my dad said: 'Boys we're moving to England' and I said 'No we're not' But dad said 'I don't care about the expense or whatever, you guys can travel as much as you want when we get there.' So I'd ski in Europe, I'd go to Greece, Spain, Moscow, I played soccer in Paris and rugby in Munich. We did everything.
(2011, on mentally visualizing your goals) I believe if you contextualize something then it will manifest in your life. I have done that with houses, cars, jobs. It absolutely works and it's not hocus-pocus. I believe everything in life has a spiritual component and everything's fair game.
[on working with Nicole Kidman on Rabbit Hole (2010)]: "She was irritated with me and I was irritated with her. But that's the way movie-making is. For one day, are we not allowed? For half a day even? It's so surprising to me when people are surprised that movie making is sometimes tense and uncomfortable because inherently it's going to be.You're around tens of people or hundreds of people working on things that are imaginary and that come from the soul. You could be dealing with subject matter like prostitution, death, drugs, blah, blah, blah. How could you expect that not to be uncomfortable?"
Yeah, I've done a lot of smaller stuff before, so it's nice to be in something that people actually see - on the outstanding success of The Dark Knight (2008).
