“I was watching Up In The Air and I thought ‘Jesus, who’s the old, gray-haired guy?’ And it was me. I never wear make up for movies and now it’s starting to show. It’s funny because earlier in my career I was working with a lot of actresses who were my age or older and most actors work with actresses who are considerably younger. So people always thought I was older anyway and I’ve been going through this thing with people thinking I’m about 60.” —George Clooney [Daily Mirror UK via Showbiz Spy]

"I got to get in a fistfight with Meg in Serious Moonlight. And she was so game. I was just like, 'Oh, my gosh. I am having a fistfight with Meg Ryan right now. I'm just on cloud nine.'"—Kristen Bell on her fisticuffs with Meg Ryan [Contact Music]

“I felt strong throughout the whole thing because I knew there was a beginning and an end to it. So for me it was a matter of, 'Okay, so this is how long I’ll be here, what am I going to do with the time?' I read everything I could. I read Bleak House, The Catcher in the Rye, The Ginger Man, A Confederacy of Dunces." —Boy George on what he read in prison [Contact Music]

"It was the second time they have asked and respectfully I declined, as I don’t feel it’s the right thing for me. I know if I ever decided to do something like that I’d want it to be tasteful and done very beautifully. But still I turned it down — I wouldn’t want my father or brother Jack to open up a magazine and see me naked.” —Kelly Osbourne is not going to give Playboy what they want [Showbiz Spy]
