WISHES HE WAS BETTER AT …
Math. Thank God for the calculator and for the little tip chart you carry in your wallet. I have that! I don’t want to be the idiot who isn’t tipping correctly.
HOW HE UNWINDS
If I want to relax and feel good, I get in the water—maybe because I’m a Pisces. I like to go surfing, scuba diving and kayaking. As long as it’s sunny, I’m in the water.
Clint Eastwood is the coolest. I worship the guy, and it would be amazing to work with him on any project as a director or costar. He’s an auteur!
BIGGEST PET PEEVE
The glow of iPhones and BlackBerrys in the movie theater. I physically need to be restrained if I see the bright lights. I make sure to turn mine off. It’s not even on vibrate—it’s turned off and in my pocket.

Dust! I’m not much of a clean freak, but if I can see it on a table or on the floor, it’s already over. I have to leave the room as soon as possible!
Writing. Very few people know it, but I was nominated for an Emmy for an ESPN voiceover I wrote about how Sept. 11 affected sports. I’m a good writer, but a horrible speller. I think that may be the hallmark of a good writer.
