Marion Cotillard Survives Close Brush With Environmental Work

"I didn't want to get bitter while waiting for something to happen, so when I was 27, I told my agent I was stopping and going to work for Greenpeace. He said, 'Please just have this one meeting.' It was with Tim Burton, for Big Fish, and I got the part." —Marion Cotillard [Vogue via Female First UK]

"Justin Theroux and Ben Stiller approached me and asked me about my interest in being in Zoolander 2. I of course thought that was the most complimentary, amazing thing, because I love Zoolander." —Jonah Hill [Movies Blog/MTV]

"It's all dark and she's a little tense 'cause a sex scene is going to happen. So I get there and she's under the covers and I'm like, 'OK, I guess they just want me to get in position here.' So I climb into the bed, she opens up the sheet and I swear, she had two pairs of sweatpants on, winter socks, a long-sleeved T-shirt. Her body is basically like a burqa from the neck down. And I go, 'OK, I guess I'll just get on top of you now', and she's like, 'Can I get the chastity pillow please?' I'm like what the hell is a chastity pillow? And they bring out this big black pillow that she puts between her legs. And from that moment on, I went from Robert Palmer to the Hunchback of Notre-Dame. 'I'm sorry, I guess I'll just hump the pillow!'" —John C. Reilly on shooting a sex scene with Jennifer Aniston for The Good Girl [Jimmy Fallon via Daily Star UK]

"I saw Steven Spielberg on the street about a month and a half ago and I asked the reality. I hear there is a script, yes, but there's no talk about doing a Goonies sequel at this very moment." —Josh Brolin [NME]

"One of the most challenging scenes was probably finally kissing Jacob for the first time. Bella has got such tunnel vision that Edward is the only thing for her. ... So when Taylor Lautner and I kissed, it felt like such a different dynamic. I was nervous as hell." —Kristen Stewart [Parade]

"I want Leo. Leo DiCaprio should be a superhero. Leo needs to be a superhero." —Stan Lee [Hollywood Life]

"No. Hip-hop right now — there are certain artists who put hip-hop in a good state.There are a lot of talented people, and there’s a lot of young talent coming up, like B.o.B, Jay Electronica, Lupe Fiasco and Drake." —Eminem on whether hip-hop has peaked creatively [NYT]

"I always say Robert Redford to everything. Or George Clooney. I could put up with George. I'd force myself, you know." —Betty White on who she'd like to star with in a rom-com [Extra TV]

"It was still a big show; there was just no music involved, and instead of throwing out the rock sign, it was more of a 'let's throw chairs and some potted plants and anything else we can get our hands on.' It was unexpected. There wasn't enough security and organization, and everyone was just so surprised by the turnout, and with that many people, it got out of hand. They canceled it just in time, I think." —Zac Hanson on the canceled Drake-Hanson free concert [MTV]
