On for his self-described “teacup hand” position while introducing the film "Brokeback Mountain" at the SAG awards, for which he was accused by some of making light of BbM's gay subject matter:

“I’m nervous under any circumstances in front of crowds."

"I am not a public speaker and never will be. I was so nervous before the DGA Awards backstage (that award was a couple of days previous to the SAGs) that my jaw was jittering and I could not get the words out. I’m just not one of those naturally funny relaxed actors who enjoy the spotlight and are so good at it. And this was really weird because we were basically introducing ourselves, like here’s this brilliant cast and guess what, it’s us.”  “How can you say all that stuff (about your own performances) — 'two brave cowboys' — with a straight face? It was just so surreal.”

“I’ve stood like that since I was a kid. You can ask me mum. It's nerves I guess. I’m a very fidgety person, always moving, never able to sit or stand still.”

"I am so sorry and I apologize for my nervousness. I would be absolutely horrified if my stage fright was misinterpreted as a lack of respect for the film, the topic and for the amazing filmmakers.”
