On finding out Ashlee Simpson was pregnant:
“I was like, ‘Oh my God, this might be the worst possible time to have this conversation. I was definitely scared, just thinking, This is something that’s going to exist for the rest of your life and you can’t f*ck it up…It was a happy accident. But I think that certain things happen for a reason in your life, and maybe it was time to put the wild child in the cage.”
On his wife being more famous:
"When me and Ashlee are on the red carpet together, I'm like her purse," he jokes.
On quitting drugs:
“Dude, after Heath Ledger, I was just like, Man, this is not going to end up good…I realized I found my soul mate, and it made me want to be a better person. Now, with the baby, I want to be the best dad I can be.”
On people's perception of him:
"People, when they meet me, are always like, 'Aw, man. I was sure I was gonna hate you,'" he says. "So as long as you aren't, you know, Hitler, they wind up thinking, like, Oh, this dude's okay!"
On the possibility of a Newlyweds reality show:
"I get pitched, like, Newlyweds 2 once a week, dude," he says. "For like, fuck-you money. Move-to-an-island-after-this money. I just can't do it."
