Justin Long: My idea of acting was working in the theater. So I am very grateful for all my jobs. I know that at the moment there is a bit of a window of opportunity for me to make smart choices. I have been very lucky so far and really happy that I have had the chance to work on interesting films, but I still always feel that every job is going to be my last.
Justin Long: I knew I could be funny and make people laugh. And at school I was always the class clown. We would often get into fake fights and I could really take a punch and I would hurl my body over chairs and desks, I could throw my body around for some reason and take a lot of pain.
Justin Long: I was actually alone in my apartment. I only got half way through it, I couldn't finish it, because reading it, the script was terrifying.
Justin Long: I waited tables for about a year; I was terrible at it, ... The only thing that I could have done to be a worse waiter would be to actually have like peed in front of people, like on them while they were trying to eat. It was at that level.
Justin Long: I get the worst of both worlds. I look like a geeky hacker, but I don't know anything about computers.
Justin Long: I can truly say that yeah, I was hoping that it would be (R-rated) and was kind of very apprehensive about doing it when I found out it wasn't.
Justin Long: I was struggling with the decision to do these Mac commercials, because I didn't want to be a sellout... but I was talking to a friend about it, and he goes, "Who are you, Johnny Depp? What are you selling out? Herbie: Fully Loaded?"
Justin Long: (on his character on "Ed") Warren Cheswick is sort of the extreme of how I felt in high school. He's awkward, but instead of accepting it, he tries to counter it, which makes him look even worse.
Justin Long: I have such thin skin, so I make a concerted effort to avoid reading anything about myself.
Justin Long: I can tell you this for sure, it was when I played baseball in high school and I was in the outfield and I would literally pray to God - I'm not joking, I'd pray to God not to let the ball come to me. I was so bad, I was just terrible. I played soccer - I was the goalie. I would pray to God it didn't get kicked anywhere near me. I was an awful athlete.
