50 Cent Is Not Too Concerned With Improving His Credit Score

“I always carry $25,000, in cash, just in case something happens ... I don’t know whether I’ll have to buy something or not." —50 Cent clearly leaves home without it [In Da Club via Showbiz Spy]

"Sometimes I just want to get back on the tour bus and watch a little Judge Judy. Just relax with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and some Judge Judy and that’s it, man. Those are some good times." —Mötley Crüe's Vince Neil is easy to please in his old age [VF]

“I couldn’t get an agent. They would come and say, ‘Oh, she’s wonderful—so tall though.’ Sometimes I’d walk into meetings, and the producers would just look at me with alarm. I think they were looking for someone smaller, someone they could imagine as part of a romantic situation.” —Sigourney Weaver on the perils of being a tall drink of water [Parade]

"I can’t remember the last time I really worried about being appealing. I think it was a really long time ago. It’s freeing as an actress, but whether a director likes it or not is a different thing. I remember [director and costar] Albert Brooks saying to me in Defending Your Life, ‘Could you just make it a little sweeter?’ And that’s been repeated by other people in the years since then.” —Meryl Streep [VF]

"I want Thin Lizzy-style, kung-fu rock with cool 80s melodies. But there's only a 20 percent chance it'll end up being that." —Julian Casablancas on what the Strokes' next album probably won't be like [Guardian UK]

"Being gay was a topic that was never mentioned when I was your age. We had not really invented the word gay — at school I used to be called Oscar, after Oscar Wilde. If you were gay there was nowhere to go and no one to talk to, there was no other gay person as far as I knew. So to come back to school for the first time in 50 years and see this is heartening, to see that as a nation we have so rapidly grown up. When I was 29 it was illegal for me to make love, I had a boyfriend and we slept together but the law said that we should be in prison. It was very hard to walk out in the street and say to him don't touch me or brush your hand against mine, there may be a police man around the corner." —Sir Ian McKellen to a school group in Quedgeley, U.K. [Telegraph UK]
