“I mean, God bless 'The Notebook'. It introduced me to one of the great loves of my life. But people do Rachel and me a disservice, by assuming we were anything like the people in that movie. Rachel and my love story is a hell of a lot more romantic than that.”
“I don't even think of myself as particularly good looking, and not at all a typical kind of Hollywood leading man sort of actor.”
“I love being Canadian. I think growing up in Canada gives you a world perspective that I certainly enjoy.”
