I took out a whole fireplace and put in broken glass and installed a burner underneath, so it looks like fire on ice. I did that in my bedroom suite. I'm pretty handy.
I think if you show up and you work hard and you're straightforward, you can always create your own opportunities. I hope I'm right.
I stole a significant amount of money from a family member. I knew I was going to get caught, but I was so desperate I didn't care. It was a cry for help.
I say eat fast and die young.
I probably tweet every other day, which I know isn't half as much as some people.
I play a lot of ultra-violent video games.
I keep a pretty low profile. I live in Culver City with some roommates. I don't do the whole 'Hollywood' thing.
I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too.
I don't read that many novels, I'm more of a nonfiction fan.
I don't need to be wildly famous for my life to make sense. I guess I'm kind of happy where I'm at, and I take whatever comes, and it's a good thing.
I don't need to be wildly famous for my life to make sense.
I don't have to hide or be somebody I'm not. I don't have to compromise. I can just be myself.
How do I put this? 'Glee' is like 'High School Musical' if 'High School Musical' had its stomach punched and its lunch money stolen.
Fox taught me how to sing and dance
Every single day I wake up in the morning, and I wonder if this is some kind of amazing dream that's gonna end all of a sudden. And, you know, I'm gonna wake up and be somewhere else.
But when the 'Glee' audition came around, my manager literally had to talk me into it. I was petrified to sing in front of anyone.
But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it.
Be nice to everyone, always smile & appreciate things because it could all be gone tomorrow.
At some point, you realize your parents are human. They make the best decisions they can with the options available to them.
And everything that comes out of my mouth is gonna be repeated in two-sentence-long bites for the next years of my life. Certain words travel far and wide.
Evolved? As a dancer? Me? I don’t fall down as much, unless it’s part of the scripted dance. I don’t step on other people’s toes anymore. I think if I started the show a one out of ten dancer, now I am a two and a half.
I have a solo deal with Columbia Records. So it's about, do I want to release an album, when can we do it, what kind of album should it be, how should it be released and marketed and what's the right timing? Do I have time to do it? It's all about questions.
I like the idea of dating, but I'm not dating anyone exclusively, particularly right now. It's hard to be in a relationship unless you're ready to go public with it. So it's a lot easier for me to not be in a relationship. I really don't want that part of my life to be tabloid fodder.
I recently had a few days off while shooting a movie in Budapest, so I took a cab from the set to the airport, looked at the departure board, and decided where I wanted to go right then and there. I spent four days in Rome and didn't tell anyone I was going.
I see the people in the tabloids, the ones that get bad press, who have kind of gone off the edge, and I try to study them so that I don't do that. It seems like they lost focus at some point - that's the one thing they all have in common.
