  • I've a very, very close-knit group of friends from Ireland. They and my family are the most important things to me
  • I'd probably have been wealthier if I had stayed with law, but pretty miserable doing it
  • It's basically lazy journalism if they say I'm the new Colin Farrell. This thing about heat, it's all just hot air
  • If you behave like a celebrity, then people will treat you like a celebrity, and if you don't, they won't. There's not much to write about me in the tabloids.
