Jerry Seinfeld’s Observational Skills Are As Sharp As Ever

“[New York City is] a nonstop circus." [A man in a business suit rides by on a bicycle that’s far too small for him.] "Look at this guy with his tiny wheels and big bag. What’s up with that?" —Jerry Seinfeld [Parade]

"I married a guy, he killed himself, I inherited everything. That's the way it goes." —Courtney Love [Spin via BlackBook]

"It's so gratifying for my second book to be so successful and it was so fun to write! The characters were already developed so I really enjoyed the process so much more this time around. All the characters have become like my friends now." —Lauren Conrad, best-selling author [GossipCenter]

"Don’t come out. I think the outing movement and the general propaganda that everyone ought to come out, I think that damaged a lot of people actually. I think it’s clear from the careers of gay performers that the way to be successful is to come out later, not beforehand." —Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields [TwentyFourBit]

"It’s the full-on for me! Suck it all up, tie it up, and then cut if all off! ... I’d think about [plastic surgery] even more if I was in a different profession. If I wasn’t on camera I would have had it done years ago. ... I don’t mind being sexy, but on my terms. To this day, I love sexuality. I love the art of sexuality. I love Lady Gaga and the performance of sexuality. The mysterious, the artistic and the slightly perverse. I’m interested in all that." —Helen Mirren [Times UK]

"He invited me over for baked potatoes topped with baked beans and cheese to talk about our characters. So we were pals." —Emily Blunt on Wolfman co-star Anthony Hopkins [Contact Music]
