Of his time dating Natalie Portman (it happened), he said: "I guess in some people's eyes, (nerds) might be mildly sexy - and, as a nerd, I'm certainly happy to enjoy some of the effects of that. But as far as the very brief affair that I had with Natalie, it's made me a target of a lot of nerd wrath... You don't date Luke Skywalker's mom and not have them hate your guts." Surely they would've been appreciative of the chink of hope it brought to their lives? Natalie Portman and Moby... that'll be some imagery to take to the deathbed.
