Mad Men’s Sexism Could’ve Been Funnier, Says Bill Clinton

"You ever watch that TV series Mad Men? If I keep watching this program, will I ever find a happy person? Great television. Good drama. But a lot of really painful reminders in that show about how black people were supposed to run the elevators ... were supposed to ask permission before they get on an elevator. The way women were treated is appalling, and only occasionally funny to me." —Bill Clinton [Chicago Sun-Times]

"Ok, favorite moment this year has yet to air yet! I literally cried laughing in every take. You will see Michael as Santa ... And yes some people sit on his lap! That's all I am allowed to say!" —John Krasinski [Boston Globe]

"I made Titanic because I wanted to dive to a shipwreck, not because I particularly wanted to make the movie." —James Cameron [Playboy]

“I’m definitely never going to be a biker. I’m scared of cars so the idea of riding a motorcycle is just never going to be something that I’m into. I was towed ridiculously while we were filming New Moon. I was on the back of this truck and I probably looked funny doing it. Taylor Lautner rode motorcycles really well. He rides up and skids. I left that to him. I wasn’t about to do that. I don’t think they would even let me.” —Kristen Stewart [Showbiz Spy]

“There is some complex emotional geometry, yes. And Bella’s situation is one of the things I responded to, honestly. It sounds sad but I have been where Bella has, having been dumped. I think everybody has had that experience, unless they are very, very lucky. I often make movies that involve depression or deep holes of sadness, although there are also these other great things in New Moon, like this epic set-piece at the end of the film in Italy.” —Chris Weitz [Telegraph UK]

"The drummer has a really good energy, and he's an Aquarius like me. I get kind of dorky about the astrology, I hate to admit it." —Adam Lambert on choosing his band members [RS]
