"Certain bloggers said I canceled because I was hung over and they were right … I was." Justin Timberlake to the audience at a San Jose concert, which had to be rescheduled after he drank too much at the MTV VMAs [Metro U.K.]

"I should be embarrassed that I was doing this. But to see anything at all was thrilling." Tina Fey, who has trolled the Internet to see if anyone was quoting lines from 30 Rock [NYT]

"I was a huge theater geek growing up, and that was not the easiest thing in the world, especially growing up in Chicago where sports are really the norm. I was always off to the theater at night, from seven years old on. Friends there in the Midwest who could talk to you about the idiosyncrasies of Pippin were few and far between." —Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki, a real-life theater nerd who plays a science nerd on TV [TV Guide]

"All of my friends are in med school and I felt shallow in comparison to them. So I figured if I got on a doctor show and got to be a doctor before them, I would feel much better about myself. That's actually kind of where I went wrong because no one had read the script since it was so top secret. I ended up calling all of my buddies and rubbing it in their faces that I was going to be a doctor before they were. Then, when I got cast as a receptionist, that was kind of a slap in the face." —Private Practice star Chris Lowell [TV Guide]

"We're all big dorks, and all we do is laugh and goof off. So, you'd be in the middle of your scene and say, 'Shoot! I just smiled. OK, take three.'" Leslie Bibb, whose upcoming film Wristcutters takes place in an afterlife where people can't smile [VH1]
