"I slept in the car a lot. I wanted to experience everything the country had to offer. I got done [arrested] for taking a shower in the gas station. I just got under the [sink] faucet and turned it on. I was not naked. I had my jocks on. I was able to wash my hair." —Eric Bana on his pre-fame life when he first moved to the U.S. [Contact Music]

"Piles of fucking. It’s basically just a lot of beanbag chairs with people fucking on them. It’s very uncomfortable. As the opening act, I have to help put it together." —Eugene Mirman on "the fuck room" backstage on the Flight of the Conchords tour [AV Club]

“I think he’s interested just because he’s rarely offered Anglo parts. I think that’s one of the reasons it was very exciting [to him].

You’ve come to me?’" —Bret Easton Ellis on Benicio Del Toro playing him in the forthcoming Lunar Park [MTV]

“I felt damn sexy wearing it. And I took a lot of clandestine photographs in my trailer.” —Simon Pegg on wearing his Starfleet uniform for Star Trek [Hero Complex/LAT]

"I've actually broken up with boyfriends for inspiration. When I hit a period of not being able to write music, I get up and walk away. It's pretty mean but it’s true." —Lily Allen [Contact Music]
