You gotta give Zach Braff his props. This is a guy who gets things done. He wants to star on a hit TV show. Done. He wants to write and direct a critically acclaimed film. Done. He wants to date just about every hottie in Hollywood. Done.
And when it comes time to do the dirty work of denying celebrity marriage rumours, he does that himself too. No publicists, no press releases, just a man and his blog. That, I can respect. Here's an excerpt from a recent post on his Garden State blog, in relation to his reported engagement to Mandy Moore.
I am not engaged. But I am dating a very lovely lady. (read rags for fun if you must, but please don't believe what you read)
I am not part tiger. (one photographer got a shot of my tail and things got blown out of proportion.)
I do love Life Cereal. (this one's true. Man it's good; either flavor.)
I am going to be Vesper Lind (the new Bond love interest). After the success of certain films this year, they have decided to "shake things up" this time around. And so Bond will be gay. I play Vesper Lind, a German spy who loves trip-hop and raves. I assassinate my victims by forcing them to drink the fluid inside of glow-sticks. James and I meet when our hands accidentally touch during a "Licensed to Kill" seminar in Dusseldorf. We were both reaching for an "Ain't Misbehavin" CD that kills an enemy after he/she listens to the Act One curtain closer. Not very effective as a means of assassination since the target would have to make it through some really mediocre numbers in the first act, and like I said, it only works on "he/she's" which aren't very common in the spy business outside of Thailand. Can't say much more it's all very hush-hush...
So there you have it. Straight from the source, and with a trademark wit to boot. Of course, I'm still ridiculously jealous of the guy. But that's a discussion for another time.
