He once told Details magazine that his “only emotional connection of relevance is with my dog. My relationship with my dog, it’s ridiculous.”
And since he doesn’t have an “entourage” like many other stars, he has chosen the canine variety of an entourage!
The actor told Scottish newspaper the Daily Record: ‘I know it’s sad. A lot of actors have a bunch of people who kind of just go up and stay with them for like two months, like an entourage. But my friends, their egos are too big. They’d be like, ‘I’m not part of your entourage. I’ll stay in a free hotel for a bit if it’s in New York or Los Angeles but I am not going to come out to some random town in the sticks.’
‘But that’s kind of why I adopted the puppy. It’s from a shelter and he was going to be put down. I only got him two or three days ago and they only keep them for 10 days. I got a private plane here [Los Angeles] from Louisiana, where I was filming Twilight, so he came out of the shelter and the next day he’s on a private plane. A bit like Lady And The Tramp.’
