Eckhart: (on Love Happens) I read the script and I thought as an actor that it really was a challenge to play everything in the movie. You know, you dealt with grief, the death of a wife, the inability to lead an honest life afterwards, the inability to love again. It had so many fun things as an actor to play that attracted me. I thought it was well written. I figured I hadn't done something like this before and then Jen was in the movie and I thought it was a challenge for me as an actor.
Eckhart: (On the character Harvey Dent) I believe that it's stronger if you have a heart. If you can relate to a character who's a villain, or not, it's always better. If I can help you to relate to my character, then I think that I'm more likely to keep your attention.
Aaron: (revealing he once clamped a clothes-peg on his genitals to improve his acting) I had to pretend that my nuts hurt, so I put a clothespin on my nuts. Otherwise, you're just learning your lines and saying them. There's no art in that. People say, 'Why do you want to put a clothespin on your nuts?' You know why? Because that's what I do for a living.
Aaron (on Erin Brokovich (the movie)): I had no expectations of it being so great. I didn't know if it was going to make money
