    • John: (About on-screen chemistry) I don't really think about that. I don't try to work on it. I just sort of hope that the person I'm going to spend time with on camera and I get along. I'm really lucky to work with Sarah Jessica Parker, Nia Valderos, and Kate. I just did a movie with Kim Basinger and we had great chemistry. But I just did a movie with Hilary Duff who's 16 and I prayed that we'd have some sort of chemistry and we did. I get lucky with these girls.

    • John: (About how he travels around) I have Avis rent-a-car and I get this car for $60 a day and I can drop it off at any major airport in the United States. It's great.

    • John: I love kids. I was just in West Virginia with my little 10-year-old godson. I wish we could all get a time machine and go back. But I don't think I'm going to have any. I think I'm past that. I'm just going to have to enjoy everybody else's kids. You can never say never but I just don't see it happening. As the years go on, I don't want to be one of those guys who has his first kid in his 50s.

    • John: (On Kate Hudson) I was in one of the greatest westerns ever made: a movie called "Tombstone" with Kate's pop, Kurt Russell. When we were out there, this was in 92, Kate was 12 years old. And now I'm playing the guy who gets to kiss her.

    • John: I'm a nice guy but I don't write these things that I play and everything I play is already written way before I come on board. I just find a way to interpret them and play them and say these lines. Somehow these parts come to me. None of them have been written with me in mind. They're words on a page that I interpret.

    • John: (About going to church) I go to Christmas Mass and that's it. By my house, I have a Catholic Seminary and I go to Christmas Eve Mass. I went through 12 years of catholic high school actually. But I go to Christmas Eve mass for fun.

    • John: Acting may be how I've made my living, but music has always been my passion.

    • John: In Hollywood if you're good looking, tall, have OK teeth and nice skin, the odds of being successful are great. If you're short and fat, it's a different story. But as long as you look like a leading man type, half your job is done already.

    • John: Acting is a win-win situation. There is no risk involved. That's why I get tired of hearing actors who try to make out that there's a downside to it. Fame is an odd thing. It bugs you a little bit, but it's really not bad.
