Given the role you played in The Descendants, I have to ask, how would you deal with deceit in your own life?
I’ll tell you how I’ll do it, I would kill. Deceit, in general, is kind of a really rotten place to be, it’s one of the worst traits. I believe in the idea of loyalty, and deceit is one of the worst things that a person could do, [such as] lie to people.
Your character in the film forgives his wife's lover; do you think that you could do the same in real life?
The whole time that I was doing the film I thought to myself, ‘Boy, I would kill this guy; I would have told his wife what he was up to’. But the character I play is caught up in a strange place in his life and he wants to do right by every one. But I don’t know if that would be my makeup.
You are the face of Omega. Why Omega?
My father wore an Omega for 20 years; my first watch was an Omega, so Omega feels like it’s a part of my family.

Free time is a luxury, vacations are a luxury, and owning a good watch is a luxury.
