In a recent interview with Morning Edition, the movie star explained the inspiration behind the title of his new children’s book. “Just because when we’re young, we like to do things because we can, even if we don’t want to or need to. We grow older and we get a little more mature. And we start to measure our decisions, not based on just if we can.”
“But we ask ourselves, we consider, well, I know I can. But do I want to or need to. That’s smart. That’s maturity. That’s evolution. But I just wanted to remind the kid in all of us that ‘because you can’ can still be a good reason to do something,” he shared.
