on his filming two trilogies back-to-back: “i’ve been white-knuckling it for so long. between the first lord of the rings and this [pirates of the caribbean: at world’s end], i’ve been going nonstop. i would come off one movie and straightaway start the next picture. i wasn’t even really thinking about it, i was letting the machinery sort of run me. so now, on a personal level, i just want some time and space from everything, from all that; from the environment and the phone and the communication.”

on turning 30 in january and for the first time in a decade having nothing to do: “look, it all felt important, too important, but now i’m in a position to—look, i’m trying not to take myself so seriously, and in not taking myself so seriously, i think i’ll be more serious.”

on learning at 13 that his dad was not his biological father: “think about that. think about finding out when you’re 13 that your dad is not your dad. it’s like, okay, take it on the chin and keep going. no choice, really.”

on being told by doctors at 21 that he might never walk again: “for four days i was thinking this was it, that i would be living my life in a wheelchair, and then i thought, no, and i knew i would walk. i just knew.”

on being famous: “there’s all this noise that happens. i was 22 when i got the lord of the rings. nobody tells you what it is like to be famous-there’s no guidebook, you know what i mean?”

on his career: “i have the patience to trust my own journey. life is going to unfold as it should because life always does. if i’m true to myself, then all the rest is like, fuck it, man.”

on being a buddhist: “the philosophy that i’ve embraced isn’t about sitting under a tree and studying my navel, it’s about studying what is going on in my daily life and using that as fuel to go and live a bigger life. when your girlfriend dumps you, when the bill comes through the door, and your mom calls you and tells you she can’t handle the stuff in her life-that’s hell, but that’s just one world. if you are aware of what is going on, then you can grow and use that hunger, that fear.”

on the downside of being in pirates of the caribbean: “there really is no downside, i’ve got to tell you. it’s put me in a position where i can wait and see what happens and now figure out what i really want to do.”
