"My dream role would be to play music legend Carol Channing in a biopic of her life. I love her, I really do. She's amazing. With all the digital technology these days, I could probably pull it off ... I'd have a go at playing a 12-year-old girl if they asked me to." —Johnny Depp on wanting to play an 88-year-old woman [Mirror UK]

"Don't just look at it at work, bring in your old porn mags and scan them there! It's like converting your vinyl to MP3s. Fill up your hard drive, and when you need a break from spreadsheets, just open a favorite pictorial." —Brad Pitt advocating porn at work [Wired]

"When you have three kids, you've got to take your opportunities when they come. In a limo, on the way to the Academy Awards this year, Will started looking at me in this way that drives me wild. We started kissing passionately, and the next thing I knew, well, let's just say we missed the red carpet and I ended up with almost no make-up on." —Jada Pinkett Smith [Shape via Contact Music]

"At first I was afraid to tell Alison [Lohman] all the things I had to do to her like, 'While digging up the corpse you may get blisters, you'll be in the rain, you'll get a little cold, you have to get a little dirty.' And what if I tell her I'm going to bury her alive in 800 pounds of mud? I slowly told her everything she'd have to go through. I was worrying she wouldn't take the part after a few hours of this but she did." —Sam Raimi on not lying, but just not telling his Drag Me to Hell star the whole truth [Sydney Morning Herald]

"The idea was to walk across the crossing, and I showed up that day with sandals, flip-flops. It was so hot that I kicked them off and walked across barefooted, and this started some rumor that because he's barefooted, he's dead. I couldn't see the connection. I just laughed. I knew it was because of the fame and the craziness. But it was a bit strange, because people started to look at me like, 'Is it really him or a very good double?' No, this is him!" —Paul McCartney on the cover for Abbey Road [Contact Music]
