Vince Vaughn 是一位蠻有魅力的演員,雖然他總是用喜劇咖的身份見世人。身高高達196公分,一站出來就很有架勢,能靜能動,嗓音也很特別。印象很深刻的是他與Jennifer Aniston演出的The Break-Up,演出那種糾葛,雙方都想要在分手時佔上風,但卻越搞越糟糕的一對怨偶,是部引人深思的電影,在美國票房也是殺出好成績耶!


I feel like as you get older, the roles you get change, and you don't always want to do the same tone over and over again.


Any guy hates Valentine's Day. Even if you're in love, you can't win on Valentine's Day. If you're married, you can't win on Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day is like the thing you want to avoid at all costs.
