Ryan Phillippe Highly Underrated As a Rapper, Says Ryan Phillippe

“I rap really well. I can sound like Lil Wayne or Ludacris. I’m dead serious … I can spit!” —Ryan Phillippe [Women's Health via Just Jared]

"[It's] probably because he's a bit more vulnerable and reminds them of their snotty boyfriends that they wish to calm down." —Robert Downey Jr. on why women like Iron Man [NYDN]

"There's about to be a big announcement. It's been picked up and it's going into production. We're going to make a press announcement hopefully within the next two weeks. [There's no cast] yet, but we have a producer and we have lots of money and we're all starting." [Who would you want to play you?] "[T]the girl from An Education, the English girl Carey Mulligan." —Sharon Osbourne on the Ozzy biopic [Dishrag]

"I told him, I said maybe me and the misses [sic] will take you to a strip bar. But that didn't happen 'cause his minder told me that he's got a curfew and he's with his mum." —Slash on meeting Justin Bieber [News AU via ONTD]

"We had an idea and we contacted Steve [Carell] and Paul [Rudd] and [David] Koechner and Christina [Applegate] and checked in with everyone and they were all game for it. The stage we're at now is talking to Paramount and trying to get the money to do it. It's a tricky movie because everyone went and did really well after it, so everyone's prices went up and everyone's time got a little more valuable. But at the same time, graciously, Steve and Paul and everyone agreed to cut their price to come and do it, which you don't see very often in Hollywood — and cut their price substantially. But even with that, it's just a budgetary thing with Paramount in terms of how much they'll give us to make it." —Director Adam McKay on Anchorman 2 [MTV]

"I’m just a glutton for punishment. But yeah, it’s just a turn-on for me when you read a script and there’s two great parts. And as a young man, to get a chance to work with actors I look up to in some way or have learned something from or respect … that’s just a turn-on. It’s like, 'Let me do that now, because before I know it I’ll be fuckin’ old.' Really, it’s a great way to learn, and it makes my job a lot easier the better the other person is. I like that a lot. I really do. I get something out of it. It’s just a turn-on." —Paul Dano on working with actors Alan Arkin, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Kevin Kline [Movieline]

"[It's] just a myth. ... [It's] like the white alligator in the sewer, you know? Who’s seen it, really? ... It’s just really the movie studio. They love the franchise, they’d just like to re-create it again. All this talk is just talk. It drives me nuts, it’s just people talking… Until someone actually creates a great script it’s just hogwash, it doesn’t mean anything." —Bill Murray on Ghostbusters 3 [/Film]

"They opened a new era for me. Up to now, I think, 'OK, I got used to [remixes of my work].' I was excited, of course, and very thankful. But this one, 'Give Me Something,' just blew my mind. It really blew my mind. This is beautiful." —Yoko Ono on the Junior Boys' chart-topping remix [Spinner]

"[She] looks fine now, but she could have done it in stages." —Joan Rivers on Heidi Montag's plastic surgeries [Us]
