Is Simon Cowell Starting to Prepare Us for His American Idol Exit?

"I can't imagine not doing Britain's Got Talent, and I can't imagine not doing X Factor. I guess [my show in] America is more likely to go, because I have got one year [left on] contract. Maybe that will be the end." —Simon Cowell on letting the Americans down first [TV Guide]

"I wrapped a movie called Zombieland, in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character. With my daughter at the airport, I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie." —Woody Harrelson comes up with an appropriate analogy for the paparazzi [EW via LAT]

"Oh, gosh. Showtime. I like Showtime, it's great. They let me do what I want to do. I appreciate it. I had to give them an award recently. More people murdering monarchs, what else — drug dealers, serial killers — my kind of people. All these Showtime shows — schizophrenics. Everyone has these severe problems." —Tracey Ullman on the misanthropic charm of Showtime [LAT]

"I think I have a better chance at getting an Oscar before a Grammy. The music industry is so fickle, there's so many politics." —Bow Wow on having his acting legacy covered [Contact Music]

"Trying to do an aggressive sex scene is quite difficult. Especially in a public place with a crowd of screaming extras with their little camera phones going click-click, taking pictures of your pasty white ass. I've had my fair share of bedroom antics in films, but they were a little more private." —Jason Statham isn't into doing it in public [NYP]

"I'll strip down to my underwear and my Ugg boots when I eat lunch in my trailer." —Eliza Dushku on her break outfit [Allure via People]
