I think I was a terrible husband. I think I’m a terrible boyfriend. I want it all fast. I want to be married. The amount of girls I’ve lived with right away and then somewhere around a year or two years. I get freaked out…I feel bad for everyone I’ve gone out with.

I saw it on the cover of one of the gossip magazines, and I was like, I’ve never had that haircut. It was supposed to be a picture of the two of us and I was like “I’ve never styled my hair like that”. It’s clearly not me.
