  • Quotes

    • Jason: A girl came up to me in a bar and said she wanted to be my apple pie. I wish I'd said something cool, but I was stunned.

    • Jason: It's not a conscious decision necessarily to break from a specific genre, 'cause I love doing goofball comedies. But it's interesting to see how the industry works--if they see you in a role that's successful, then they want to keep using you for that.

    • Jason: I love doing these scenes. I love that I'm the guy that went for it. I will do just about anything for the sake of a laugh, and I love that I got to take these big risks, and I love physical comedy, it's my favorite thing in the world to do.

    • Jason: I'm still never able to order pie without the server giving me a little smirk or going back to the kitchen and saying something.

    • Jason: I appreciate the comfort of a relationship, and the whole blinded-by-love thing is something I totally get. I know a lot about the general relationship woes people have.

    • Jason: (On actress Christina Ricci) She is so smart and professional, it's ridiculous. She's cool and funny too though, and we had a lot of laughs together.

    • Jason: (On the dating games) I had a girlfriend forever and I'm just recently sort of getting back into the dating world, so I have my own issues to deal with. I guess it can be difficult. It can be difficult [but] not because of the type of character I play. I don't really worry about people thinking of me as the 'pie guy' and not wanting to date me because they think I'm a loser or sexually inept. It's more about, Is the girl into you because you're cool and because she likes you and because she's able to separate you from your work? Or is my film work or recognition a distraction to her, or something she's not able to put aside? Is that the only reason she likes me? Those questions that come into play, not so much my concern over being perceived as a bumbling, goofy guy.

    • Jason: (On making Jersey Girl) Kevin Smith is fantastic; he's brilliant and one of the nicest guys. It was a great experience being on the film. I had just a smaller supporting role. I was a visitor to the set but everyone welcomed me with open arms. It's a supporting role versus a cameo [like I did] in Jay and Silent Bob.

    • Jason: Of course you can't help but be bothered when a film fails, but not to the point where I really let it get to me. I mean, you don't go into a game to lose but to win and when you don't, it's upsetting. But if you played well, then you should be happy. A couple of those movies did not do well at all but the most important things I look at are: Did I have a good time making them, which I did and am I proud of my performance, which I am in everything I've done.

    • Jason: (On filming American Pie) We all approached doing a sequel with great trepidation and skepticism... First came a pleasantly surprisingly script, and then with the whole cast coming back made doing this most appealing, so it was a great reunion of sorts.

    • Jason: A girl came up to me in a bar and said she wanted to be my apple pie. I wish I'd said something cool, but I was stunned.
