Colin Farrell No Fan of Self

"I'm not really a fan of my own work to be honest." —Colin Farrell [Mirror UK]

“He’s such a talented motherfucker. I wonder how I can get what he has. ... He asks me what I do to work out because he wants man-boobs like me. I just tell him I like doing pushups." —Twilight's Kellan Lutz on his co-star Robert Pattinson [NYDN]

"There's many, many times where I've watched the show back and I'm absolutely appalled. You do the show, you're not aware of what's happening in the room outside. You know, somebody just said, ‘My dog Lassie died yesterday,' I'm in a bad mood and, you know, awful, and you see it in that context, it's very, very difficult to watch." —Simon Cowell [Piers Morgan's Life Stories via NYDN]

"There's always a time when she'll say, 'Well, when I was a florist,' or 'When I sold peaches on the street,' or 'When I went to massage school.' She's a journeyman who can start a sentence from any number of non sequiturs." —Jason Sudeikis on SNL co-star Kristen Wiig [NYDN via Jezebel]

"I remember reading the script [of There Will Be Blood] and thinking it was the best script ever. I just couldn’t do it. And I was so pissed off afterwards. I was gonna go into the audition, but I was just, like, I can’t do it. Also The Assassination of Jesse James [by the Coward Robert Ford] — that was the other. I don’t know why I’ve pussied out of these things. I wouldn’t do it ever again.” —Robert Pattinson on scripts he's turned down [HitFix via Playlist]

"I sat next to him. I’m not sure if he ate popcorn but he did wear the 3D glasses." —Anne Hathaway on watching Alice in Wonderland with Prince Charles [Express UK]

"Do I belong in the conversation about the best artists in the world? My answer is yes, I do. I’ve been too productive for too long, and despite what anybody wants to strip away from me, I am influential. I am. So all the Pitchforks in the world can try to strip me of every ounce of dignity, but I belong. ... Rather than break up the band, what I should have done is chuck James [Iha] out. I should have just said to Jimmy [Chamberlin], ‘You go to rehab, and we’ll continue, and James, get the fuck out of here.’ Instead, I fell on my sword for James, for what I thought was a friend." —Billy Corgan [RS]

"I'm bringing my mom and my brother [to the Oscars]. I'm really excited but my mom is even more so. All she wants to do is meet George Clooney. She can't wait. It's all she talks about." —Anna Kendrick [Contact Music]
