LAST VACATION ...

I had been to Colombia, staying in the jungle there, and after telling somebody about that they suggested Nicaragua. I went on a whim and stayed on the coast, surfing for two weeks.

LAST TIME I FORGOT MY WALLET ...

I think it was a couple of years ago, and I haven't had a wallet since. I just carry around my cards and cash with a money clip.

LAST TIME I CRIED ...

I cried two weeks ago on a movie set. It's really therapeutic. And the only times I've had to cry on-camera I've had to sob uncontrollably. Afterward I feel like I'm king of the world.

LAST ROAD TRIP ...

I drove from L.A. to Mammoth Mountain and had a weeklong snowboarding trip in March. We got, like, six feet of powder when they weren't expecting any at all. It was awesome.

LAST N.Y.C. DISCOVERY ...

There's a jazz club on the Lower East Side called the Moldy Fig. It opened a couple of months ago, and it's always got some brilliant jazz players there. Really proper, traditional jazz.
