During an interview with Us Weekly at GQ's Gentlemen's Ball in New York City, New York, on Wednesday, the Dawson's Creek alum revealed how important being a gentleman is for him.

So, what was the last nice thing he did for his girlfriend?

"Ahhh... let's see, the last nice thing I did... " he pondered, before telling the publication, "Well, I am flying to Paris tomorrow to go see her for the weekend. That's pretty nice, if I do say so myself."

"Chivalry is part of being a gentleman," he explained, "but I don't think actually being composed at all times is gentlemanly."
