"I once sat next to a guy on a plane who complained he didn't want to take his kid to ice-skating lessons because they were too expensive. He was sitting in first class. I told him: 'I'm so glad I didn't have a parent like you.' My family has always supported me and revelled in my success." Reese Witherspoon on why it sucks to sit next to her on a plane [Metro U.K.]

"Stars really are like anyone else. At the end of the day, Brad Pitt poops — as handsome as he may be — and so does Angelina Jolie. I'm still baffled by how odd this job is." —Gossip Girl star Blake Liveley [CosmoGIRL via People]

"No. They wouldn't enjoy it. No kid wants to watch daddy fucking groupies. You know what I mean?" Michael Ian Black on why he doesn't bring his kids on the road with him [Starpulse]

"Let's be realistic — my wife isn't in this for the money or the publicity. I don't think we have another Watergate here." Jerry Seinfeld defends his wife from the accusation that her new cookbook plagiarizes from a similar book [NYT]

"The fact that most CDs last 72 minutes has been a bad thing for albums. I don't want to mess up a perfect album by putting one extra song on there. It has to be a concise, consistent statement." —Spoon front man Britt Daniel on why their latest album is only 36 minutes long [NYDN]
