Ryan Phillippe Would Like To, at Some Point, Thoroughly Embarrass Self

"I would like to, at some point, produce an artist down the line. It's always been a passion of mine. I've grown up a hip-hop head since I was mad young." —Ryan Phillippe [MTV]

"I’m like a Prohibition-era flapper. I’m like a juke-joint hussy. [Feeling ashamed] is not an organic state of being, so shamelessness is closer to godliness. You have to put shame down." —Sharon Stone [More]

"[Director Catherine Hardwicke] knows [who I want to play the wolf] … she knows. [I don’t want to say] 'cause what if it isn’t and then the person that does play the wolf is like, 'Oh you wanted him.' [His initials are] VC. You're not gonna figure it out." —Amanda Seyfried on casting Red Riding Hood [MTV]

"We've regretted [our band name] many times." —The National's Matt Berninger [Spinner]

"I was an extra in The Lake House when Sandra Bullock was in it, and we were told that we were not allowed to make eye contact with her unless she initiated the eye contact." —AV Club's Steve Heisler in an interview with actress Kim Dickens [AV Club via Movieline]

"We're gonna make it. My prediction would be — I know that Jason Bateman said we weren’t making it. You can't believe this guy. I'll tell you about him later. He's like a world class idiot. No, but we actually are [going to make it]." —Will Arnett on the Arrested Development movie [MTV]

"The awards are important to hip hop and to show [hip-hop artists] in the right light. But the beauty of BET is, if Justin Bieber's hot, then he deserves to be on that stage. Sometimes, at other award shows, the color of your skin or the type of music you make takes away from getting the accolade you deserve." —Diddy [NYDN]

"My vision for the new TBS show is to pick up where Hee Haw left off. My hunch is that 32-year-old males want to hear corny jokes and lots of classic country music." —Conan O'Brien [USA Today]
