Joshua Jackson: (on Fringe) Anna gets all the cool Spider-man stuff, I just do a lot of running, I'm chasing and she's on the rooftop jumping from building to building looking much more bad ass-ed than me.
Joshua Jackson: If girls were going after me, I would not only admit it, but I would probably exaggerate about the swarming masses. I can flirt and have fun, but at the end of the day, I'm not Tom Cruise. Girls are not falling all over me.
Joshua Jackson: I'm of the opinion that life doesn't always tie up neatly at the end of the episode.
Joshua Jackson: Most people call my style of dress slovenly, I call it extreme casual. If I didn't have a mother and a sister for the times I do have to get dressed, I would be absolutely lost.
Joshua Jackson: (how he looks at his future) In an optimistic way: it's part of life and career, trying to move on, taking challenges on your job and solving personal problems. I try to move on knowing that I can't always be successful and sometime I may fail. My goal is to keep the non-success rate always lower that the success one.

My parents getting divorced was obviously a very traumatic experience. And then after, it was just me, my sister and my mother, and we went at it alone. I went from being a very well-off little kid to having a couple rough years, to rebuilding, my mother did that. She and I are very close.
Joshua Jackson: The anti-elitist values in America, I think, are very destructive to education.
Joshua Jackson: You know, at the end of the day, I can only be me.

And I don't want to spend my time projecting a false image.
Joshua Jackson: I hate people saying anything stupid. I don't really suffer fools very well at all. When people are acting like idiots, not that I'm not guilty of doing the odd idiotic thing myself from time to time, but when people say stupid things, it stresses me out. I have a pretty thick skin about people coming up to me and saying things to me when I'm out, I don't really mind that too much. but when people are just loud and annoying, it drives me crazy.
Joshua Jackson: I've had more of an opportunity to work with Katie Holmes, which is incredibly enjoyable. I think she is really one of the best actresses on the market right now. She forces you to bring your best stuff to the table, because if you don't, she just completely overpowers you.
Joshua Jackson: I got two marriage proposals from Japan after the Mighty Ducks movies came out. From Japanese girls. Yeah. The nation of Japan. They wrote me letters and expressed their desire to have my hand in holy matrimony. It's bizarre.
