Fans of Placenta Biting to Be Disappointed by Twilight 4

"The childbirth — all the scenes, I feel — should be on screen. ... [But] would we actually see Edward's teeth through the placenta? I don't think so. I don't think we need to see that, and if someone needs to see that, I think they should take a look at that." —Twilight: Breaking Dawn screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg [PopSugar]

"M.I.A. loves … I dunno what to say … Justin Bieber?" —M.I.A. when asked "What does M.I.A. love?" [Idolator]

"When we started shooting one of the ADs said, 'Before you get to lunch we want to do some of the avalanche shots.' 'OK, how is that going to happen?' 'We're going to blow up a couple mountains and we're going to start a couple of avalanches and you're going to get in there and be a part of it and then we'll take you to lunch.' And this is kind of what you expect on a Chris Nolan set." —Leonardo DiCaprio on shooting Inception [Yahoo]

"There was this girlfriend of mine who wrote this movie, The Next Best Thing, with Madonna in it and Rupert Everett. They actually wrote the part of Madonna’s best friend based on me. ... [Director John] Schlesinger wanted to see me play the role of myself, and I was telling [screenwriter] Mel [Bordeaux], 'I don’t think this is going to be such a good idea.' I went to meet John Schlesinger and Mali Finn, and Mali Finn called Rupert and Mel and John Schlesinger afterward and said, “I really like her, but she’s too outspoken and very, very edgy.' So not only did I not get the part of myself, my husband at the time’s ex-girlfriend got the part. So not only could I not play me, but someone my husband used to fuck could play me better." —Kelly Cutrone [Complex]

"Almost every day I'm working with an exotic animal ... It's insane, like I got bitten on the arm by a lion with no teeth. They were like, 'It's fine, he does it all the time.' And I was like, 'erm ... ok ... !' But they had to get him to do it harder, because he was being so gentle and just licking my arm." —Robert Pattinson on shooting Water for Elephants [Take 40]

"[When] other actresses who aren’t thought of, maybe, as being quite as attractive do full-frontal, they’re called brave. Nobody has ever said, ‘Eva, you’re so brave for doing full-frontal nudity.’ Just because I’m attractive doesn’t mean it’s not still scary. Why am I not brave?" —Eva Mendes [Allure via ONTD]

"I’ve had a scene where I’m supposed to kiss somebody, and I went for it with the actress. It was a movie called Visioneers, with Mia Maestro. Google her. She’s really nice. She was not going for it. I think a couple of takes I went in with my tongue already out of my mouth. It was like a plane coming in for a landing. And then it was as if someone had cemented her mouth shut." —Zach Galifianakis [GQ]

"I know that people are inquisitive of what I do all day, so here goes. I wake up around 11AM. Have some coffee. Call my kids, and my wonderful mother. I then shower up. Read fan mail. Have lunch. Back on the phone. Read a book or write some thoughts down. Have dinner. Phone. Pushups. Then I listen to ESPN on the radio. Read the bible, then sleep. That’s my day." —Lil Wayne in his latest letter to fans [Weezy Thanx You]

"'There's a bigger challenge for me when I play American, but I'm up for the challenge,' Elba says. 'Hugh Laurie [from the television drama 'House'] said it once, he said 'Being British and showing up on an American set with an American accent is like playing tennis with a fish.' I get that and I'm always aware of the accent.'" —Idris Elba [CNN]

"It's been fun to play dumb." —Stephanie Pratt on the end of The Hills [Fancast]
