On his Sexiest Man Alive status:
“Well, they’re not saying you’re the Biggest A–hole, you know? When you get older, you realize it’s just for fun. Clooney and I were able to have fun with it later. But in some ways, I’m still a kid from Missouri and Oklahoma and I’m trying to find my way. By the way, we’re only talking about a blip. I didn’t spend much time thinking about it.”
On his joint "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" effort with Angelina Jolie: “A husband and wife who actually want to kill each other—I thought that was a launching pad for something really fun and vibrant. Again, that was something we were developing as we were going along, and Angie’s a great partner in that. We work really well together. We had some good workshops beforehand. Had some good laughs and ideas. That was just a great collaboration that turned into a greater collaboration.”
On the possibility of working alongside his lady in the future: “We should be doing them together—that’s what we should be doing. We should be doing everything together, and then we could work less. We could have more time off.”
