On his sexuality:
"Maybe I could say right now I'm 100% straight, but who knows? In a f****** year, I could meet a guy and be like, 'Whoa, I'm attracted to this person.' I've met guy all the time that I'm like, 'Damn that's a good looking guy,' you know? I've never been, like, 'Oh I want to kiss that guy.' I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100% anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded."
On dreaming for equality:
"I have this dream that one day, my kid's gonna come home from school and be like, 'Dad, there's this girl that I like, and there's this guy that I like, and I don't know which one I like more, and I don't know what to do.' And it'd just be a non-issue, like, 'Which one is a good person? Which one makes you laugh more?'"
On helping to put an end to bullying:
"Talking to kids in school and reaching out through social media we found to be really effective. That's where people are molded into who they become when they grow up. Kids are so mean to each other sometimes. You're figuring out who you are, and you're insecure about it. Especially if you don't have a great family life or you're being influenced by a religion too much, a way to feel better sometimes is to put somebody else down. Our goal is making kids more compassionate and more understand that people are just people. It's really about being yourself."
On Peeta having a threesome:
"I know Peeta would be into it, for sure. He's very sensitive, in touch with his emotions. I think it really might solve a lot of their problems. You know what? I'm going to pitch that idea. Let's make it a - what's it called when three people are in a relationship together? A triad? That'll go over well with Middle America."
On his bromantic bond with Sam:
"You know there are just times when you meet people in life and it clicks instantly? It was like that with Sam. I like people that just let me be myself, and I don't feel like I have to try to be extra-fancy."
