Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
[on battling depression] I, in the past, have had my own struggles of not [being] so happy with where I am in life, which is strange and I think it goes to show... Maybe a lot of people don't know this, but season three [of Supernatural], we were shooting an episode, and I went back to my trailer to get changed and just kind of broke down. A doctor came to set and talked to me for about 30 minutes or 45 minutes and said, 'Jared, I think you're clinically depressed. I think I should write you a note and we can shut down production for five days and then we can take it from there... I say constantly that there's no shame in dealing with these things," said the star, who explained that he began to feel better after taking a step back and taking a break. "There's no shame in having to fight every day, but fighting every day, and presumably, if you're still alive to hear these words or read this interview, then you are winning your war. You're here.
Just be yourself and the right guy will come along, whether it be today, tomorrow, or next year. It'll happen!
I love cookies baking. During the winter, they have these candles that smell like cookies, and I always buy like a hundred of them.
On love: "Don't place expectations on someone. Enjoy the time you have together, and let it go where it goes."
I'm a little self-conscious about my body. I love to wear hoodies because you can get cozy and eat some food and your belly doesn't show!
"I'm so happy with my family, my career and my friends, and I'd like for them to be here forever, so I guess loss is what scares me the most. - On the thing that scares him the most.
When asked about his superstitions: "Whenever I drive under a yellow light, I always kiss my finger and tap it on the roof of the car. And I do that when I get onto a plane as well!"
"Anywhere I can be with my family" - Jared on the happiest place on earth.
