Says that he is constantly mistaken for Mark McGrath from the band Sugar Ray so often that he signs autographs as "Mark McGrath" and, apparently, the same thing happens to Mark McGrath who, in turn, signs autographs as "Ethan Hawke" to fans.

Ethan Hawke and Amanda Seyfried in First Reformed (2017)

Remains close friends with Dead Poets Society (1989) co-stars, Robert Sean Leonard and Josh Charles. Because of that movie's theme - triumph of the human spirit - Hawke laughingly refers to it as "One Flew Over the Robin's Nest" (due in part to Robin Williams's starring role).

Turned down the role of Bobby Mercer in Four Brothers (2005). He loved the script but could not commit to this because of scheduling conflicts. The role eventually went to Mark Wahlberg.
