Matt Damon’s Mustache Is Just a First Draft

"[The mustache] is for my new movie with the Coen Brothers. We're redoing True Grit. I'll show it to them this week. If they like it, fine. If not, I'll try again." —Matt Damon [Page Six/NYP]

"The 3D thing confuses me. I haven't seen Avatar or any of these 3D movie things yet. The idea of it ... I remember 3D movies from when I was a kid, and I can just picture it giving me a headache." —Robert Pattinson [MTV via Contact Music]

"The part where it says she slowly gets undressed ... has no reference to her and [me]. It's not even a duet. As God is my witness, there is nothing I have to be defensive about. I'm a good dad. I just thought it was a beautiful song." —Bret Michaels on his duet with Miley Cyrus, "Nothin' to Lose" [MTV]

"It's easy to play a woman who's falling in love with him. We met on History of Violence and had an immediate connection. I love kissing him. He's a good kisser. But, unfortunately, it was only a movie." —Maria Bello on Yellow Handkerchief co-star William Hurt [Parade]

"It was hell... [Costume designer] Sandy Powell ... corset-ed me within an inch of my life. ... She said, 'The shape needs to be right.' I said, 'Well I can't breathe, Sandy.' And she said, ;;I don';t care.' But it worked ... so I have to be grateful, I think." —The Young Victoria star Emily Blunt [People]

"I don't like perpetuating the stereotype of black males being drug dealers and innately criminal. It was interesting to watch how Nino, who I played in New Jack, became this urban folk hero of sorts. Guys would actually come up to me and say, 'Yo, Snipes, I'm the real Nino. That's me.' It was like a badge of honor and they wanted me to be patting them on the back or buying drugs from them. I'm not with that. Caz, the guy I play in Brooklyn's Finest, still has that kind of swagger, but after doing a little bit of time upstate, he's trying to elevate his life." —Wesley Snipes [Parade]

"I didn't know if I wanted to join a field that was becoming as crowded and choked as law was. ... [But if I had] I'd probably be representing [my brothers] right now. But I do think they saw me acting and thought, 'If he can do it, we can do it.' More accurately, maybe it would be, 'if [that] shithead can do it, we can do it.'" —Alec Baldwin [NYDN]

"I'm actually in the tree. If you'll remember the special effect, I go into the tree." —Sigourney Weaver on rising from the dead for an Avatar sequel [IMDb]
