He's played James Dean, Spider-Man's foe and a World War I ace, but this 28-year-old Palo Alto, Calif., boy isn't letting the altitude go to his head.

DRAMAMINE ANYONE? "I did mock aerial combat for Flyboys. You go up in planes with military pilots and have six dogfights with a friend. We did four or five loops in a row. My friend threw up twice—but I didn't."

SUPER FRIENDS! "I've never had as much fun as I had on Spider-Man 3 with Tobey [Maguire] and Kirsten [Dunst]. We were friendly in the first couple, but now I consider them friends."

WILLING TO WAIT "For a long time I was really focused on my career. I've tried to relax a little bit. That doesn't mean I'm ready to get married. If I got married at 40, I wouldn't feel like it was too late."
