Men who feed the meter

I was walking down the street when I noticed a meter maid waiting for one meter to expire so she could write ticket. I felt the weight of a few quarters in my pocket and knew what needed to be done. I changed someone's life for the better that day. I caught an earful from the meter maid but I know my choice was righteous. - Channing Tatum

Men who give back to kids with cancer

I met a teenager with terminal brain cancer and I told her to call me if she was having a bad day. I told her, "Tell your friends that Luke Bryan told you that you can call anytime you want." She doesn't call me enough, but I feel like it's special for her. - Luke Bryan


Men who make jokes

I've always believed acts of kindness are better when kept to yourself. I'm wary of people who trumpet their own good deeds. That being said, I feel pretty great about the new treatments and medicines I've created for the medical community, which I refuse to take credit for. - Justin Theoroux

Adam Levine

I don't like to be idle.

I've entered a certain airspace in my mind where I think to myself "This is great." And it doesn't need to be any better than this.

I enjoy being naked. I'm naked as much as possible.

I have a good cry every once in a while.

"If I could bottle up the chills that you give me, I would keep them in a jar next to my bed." That was the best line I ever wrote in my life.

I've looked the same basically since I was in high school.

Bread makes me want to go to sleep.

I don't think I'm quite as vain as everybody thinks...I see a physical therapist for massages because I work out so much. I draw the line at mani-pedis. You've got to retain some sort of masculine characteristics; you can't trim yourself into a tizzy and become a woman.


Adam Levine's tattoos

I don't do tattoos below the waist. You can't do the hands too. That's what you make things with. I'm tied to my hands.

When you have tattoos, you want to see them, and I'm pretty hairy, so someone recommended I wax...I do that and it's exceedingly painful.
