He is not saying that his speeches help win Oscars (but he's not not saying that...).

He plays the guitar, badly.

J.J. Abrams once sent him a giant box of doughnuts.
He used to be slimmer.

He's going to make a movie. One of these days.

He's not sure why he wrote all this in the third person.

(Did he mention he's won some awards?)
