Anna Kendrick Tormented by Unsightly Co-star

"Yeah, George gave me such a hard time about shooting Twilight. Whenever I came back, it was like, 'Oh sorry, this isn't the Twilight set. You're not working with Mr. Handsome.' He called Rob 'Mr. Handsome.'" —Anna Kendrick [MTV]

"I don't know what has happened to movies, but lately every movie is at least 20 minutes too long," he said. "It used to be that if you were three hours long it was because it was epic — a movie about Gandhi; something with very important subject matters. Now, it doesn't matter what you're making a movie about; everyone thinks their movie is so brilliant that it has to be three hours long. Not to be critical but ... well, we all know which movies those are." —Ethan Hawke [LAT]

"I'm desperate for my dad to direct me. If there is ever a moment that he would hint at the fact that he wanted to, that he thought I was right for something, I would audition like crazy and work really hard and, you know, we would see the proof would be in the pudding, but it hasn't happened yet." —Bryce Dallas Howard [Parade]

"This strip club is run by Cher, and the girls look fantastic, especially Christina Aguilera, who just blows me away with her talent. I've come to terms with the fact that I'm never going to look like her. I'm a little bit closer to an elf in Santa's workshop. But I'm working on it. I'm a burlesque dancer who's an alcoholic, so I'm playing sexier than I've ever done before. You won't see me naked, wearing pasties and a g-string or anything. But you definitely won't think of me as the girl next door either." —Kristen Bellon her role in Burlesque [Parade]

"I seem to have become a heroine for middle-aged women. I thought I'd have the opposite reaction. They thank me for illuminating this perspective on libertine female desire ... normally, it's such a masculine role." —Vera Farmiga[Scotsman]
