"If I wasn't here, I'd probably be living in Central America or something. I love it down there. Or Fiji - it's so awesome. I like being by the ocean, tropical, warm weather. "
"Some people say that you should go to all the parties, to the nightclubs, the Viper Room, and make contacts, and I look at them and say, 'You don't want to have contacts with those people.' Look at what happened to River Phoenix (who died in 1993 of a drug overdose outside the Viper Room). If you get caught up in that, it ruins you. Hollywood is garbage."
"I'm a dreamer. I've got this whole thing where I think I'm supposed to be a musician. I live by the seat of my pants, but I'd like to think that I'm also pretty sensible."
Okay. An actual update so you guys can see that I really can update. I've been kinda slackin' on it but I've just been too busy. I hope you guys caught the special edition of spring Break on MTV. Tyrese and I had a lot of fun doing that. It's already aired a few times but they love to repeat it like, every day. We've both been doing a lot of shows and publicity stints to promote the movie. Man. And it wears you out. It's cool though. I hope it's all worth it. Which, by the way, they've got me on the cover of Teen People. I still can't grasp the concept of my being on any magazine or big screen period. Oh well. Better to keep both feet on the ground that way.
And yeah. I decided to drop out of the running for the Superman movie. I've got too much on my hands already with Heart of a Soldier set to start shooting this summer. Or maybe having to wear those tight pantyhose or whatever just scared me away...? :: Laughs.:: Yeah. I kinda have issues with having all my stuff hangin' out.
Damn. I wrote more than I thought I would. Okay. Time to wrap it up. I'm damn tired and I gotta get up early as hell for my morning swim. Ali, you're the Icon Guru. Jess seems to.. love my pants..? :: Laughs.:: And JB, is off somewhere...? I'm outta here. 'Night.
Man. I feel like I haven't updated in forever. I've been swamped with work this whole week and I haven't been able to talk to anyone hardly. Sorry 'bout that. But hopefully things might slow down a bit and I can catch up with you guys. Everything is just becoming so hectic as time gets closer for opening night. I tend to forget how crazy and out-of-hand the media can get.
Oh, and thanks for the soup, Trish. You totally rule. :) Hope you're doin' better.
Okay. Makin' this update short because I need to get away for a bit. Flying down to see my family for the day. I miss my mom. Ha. Sounds corny, but true.
Yeah, I've been kinda slackin' on the updates and all. Sorry about that. But I'm not feelin' too hot. I think I caught a cold. Jordana and I went for a late swim and I woke up sneezing and congested. Damn. I'm takin' the NyQuil and I'm heading to bed. I promise a better update will come soon enough.
Yes, I'm still alive. Had to dip out of town for a few days for a car expo that was goin' on in Miami. Awesome as hell. I was tempted to buy out one of the Hemi Challengers up for grabs, but I think I'll stick it out and wait to get my bike.
Gotta make this post kinda short. I got plans tonight. :: Smiles.:: Update later.
Time for the official update. Can't put it off any longer.
I was gone for some time, I know. And I know that by just up and disappearing, I've hurt a lot of people. I gotta first say that I didn't mean for things to happen that way, but they did. I know more than anyone, Ali deserves an explanation for eveything I've put her through.. and I will definitely give it to you.. but only you. I just don't feel like I need to share something so personal that has happened with everyone. I like to keep certain things pretty private that happen in my life. So basically what it comes down to is.. I'm sorry. I can't say it enough and I can't tell you how much I truly mean that. I'm sorry to everyone I put through this and most of all to Ali. You deserve so much more and I hope you have finally found it.
Okay. With that said, I'm off to the studio. I hope to get home at a decent hour tonight. I'm tired as hell.
Late night, I know. Just had to get my first post in cuz I promised someone I would. Not gonna do a long essay and all cuz frankly, I'm tired as all hell. But soon. Just keep an eye out for it. 'Night.
