4He and Mika Boorem were on-screen sweethearts in two completely unrelated movies in the same year: Dimitri and Megan in Along Came a Spider (2001) and Bobby and Carol in Hearts in Atlantis (2001).
5Anton Yelchin's uncle is Eugene Yelchin, an illustrator, character designer and storyboard artist for movies and television, who is also a novelist and children's books author.
6Had played younger versions of two classic science fiction film characters. He played Pavel Chekov in Star Trek (2009) and Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation (2009).

#Quote
1Guilt is a very important part of my personality... There are two things at work here, history and genetics. The history of Eastern European Jews, Ashkenazi Jews, has not been very pleasant. And I'm not just talking about World War II, but centuries and centuries of oppression and pogroms. If you are a product of that environment, it is a very big part of who you are. That's not to say it's all you are, but it is a part.
2I was a horrible athlete. My parents are athletes; they tried me to get me to do that, but I just couldn't. I sucked. First I wanted to be a scientist, and I set our bathroom on fire. Then I wanted to be a basketball player and I'm a not-very-tall white, Russian Jewish kid. So that didn't work out either.
3I have an aversion to remakes, which is ironic because I'm in two of them right now. When I went back and watched T3 recently, I thought we need to make a better movie. I can't say I'm a fan.
4Russia is very complicated. It is one of the most complicated histories. I could go on about this forever. It produces Dostoyevsky and Rachmaninoff and then it produces Stalins and Lenins. It is such a strange combination. I don't know why that rant about Russia was necessary.
