Blake Says

"At the end of the day, Brad Pitt[kwlink] poops, as handsome as he may be, and so does [kwlink 928]Angelina Jolie."

"I'm a shy person. There's nothing better than staying home and watching good movies. Some people want to go out and dance every night. I want to sit at home, cuddle, and bake cookies."

"I play in (Rock Band video game) tournaments in Brooklyn. I'll cover myself in sailor tattoos and dress like a rock star. Everyone else dresses totally normally and must think I'm a complete freak!"
