When he's not perilously filming on California highways, Greg—a past Oscar® nominee for As Good As It Gets—gets to go home to his wife of seven years, Helen, and their two daughters. Having so many girls around is a new experience for Greg, who grew up with boys on both sides of his family. "The fact that we got a girl was amazing. The fact that we got another girl was baffling," he says.
Greg says his children make him realize the importance of the choices he makes every day. "The sense of confidence that you have about anything in your life is completely shot," he says. "There's a real sense of vulnerability that sets in about just all of the things you can do wrong or do right, and there's no great blueprint on any of this." At the same time, he says, children are so loving and giving that "you can't lose."
