As soon as I got to 17 and 18 years old and I wasn't playing these teen roles anymore, it was hard to transition. So I thought I was going to do the weirdest stuff I could possibly do. Stuff that was edgier and alternative, like Idle Hands and SLC Punk! and the "Stan" video. I wanted to get out of that kind of teen-idol thing. So far it's worked. Now I'm doing another transition from the college roles and all that to young doctor, young lawyer, young cop. It's been quite a journey. Hide

That friend called me up saying, "Hey, Dre's a big fan of Final Destination. Would you come in and meet Eminem?" And I said, "In a heartbeat." I went into the studio and I met him and he approved it. And the next week we were shooting. It was a wild, wild shoot. Dido looked borderline-scared sometimes during that shoot. I was playing this crazy, obsessed lunatic fan, and this was her first acting thing. She'd look at me like, "Are you being serious right now?" It was pretty crazy. Dre co-directing it was huge for me. I've listened to his music from the time I was a young teenager all the way up until now. The guy's a legend. He's a genius... You just feel the greatness around. He's smart, and he knows what he's doing. It's the same feeling you get when you're around Spielberg. You just know that they're something special. Hide
