Justin Bieber to Blame for Next Detox Delay

"[I] got to be in the studio with the legend himself Dr. Dre ... made a couple beats and he gave me some advice ... i was hyped. can u blame me?" —Justin Bieber [JustinBieber/Twitter]

"Kristen is always really good but also clearly speaks her mind. That can be a bit uncomfortable. After we shoot a scene she sometimes looks at the director and says, 'Let's do that again.' If I did that she would probably kill me! She would probably say something like, 'Shut up! The scene was perfect!'" —Robert Pattinson on Kristen Stewart [Sächsische Zeitung via IMDb]

"I’m not, I’m afraid. I can officially quash that rumor once and for all. It’s not going to be me. But I’m excited to see it. I love the books and I think it will be great." —Carey Mulligan on playing the lead in Girl With the Dragon Tattoo [PopWatch/EW]

"I got to be wild and nuts, and I didn't suffer as much as people do now, where they have to play it so safe that they ruin their credibility. ... It was also about avoiding the tornado of chaos, of potential downfall. It was, 'Wow, how lucky are we to not have hung out with that crowd or done those things?' My two main competitors in the beginning, the blond-haired kids I went to audition with, one hung himself and the other died of a heroin overdose ... I was never into drugs at all. There aren't stories of me in a pool of my own vomit in a hotel room on the Hollywood Strip." —Leonardo DiCaprio [RS]

"It's been great to go back with Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. I should go back and do Son of Scarface or something!" —Oliver Stone, joking [Total Film via Playlist]

"They offered me the rights to Watchmen back, if I would agree to some dopey prequels and sequels ... So I just told them that if they said that 10 years ago, when I asked them for that, then yeah it might have worked. But these days I don’t want Watchmen back. Certainly, I don’t want it back under those kinds of terms. ... I’m pretty much out of comics now. I really want nothing to do with it." —Watchmen creator Alan Moore [Wired]

"I would be honored. But we haven't gotten the script yet." —Angelina Jolie on playing the title role in a Cleopatra biopic [Us Weekly]

"I read the cover letter that said 'HBO' and 'Alan Ball.' I was like, 'Please! Yes! Thank you!' Then I read it and I was like, 'Okay, well they’re never going to cast me as blond and Southern.' So that was nice, but — never gonna happen. And I went in anyway as pale, dark, brooding girl and managed to convince them that it was a coloring issue, not an inability to do it. A lot of times people have no imagination when it comes to things like what you look like. As in, 'Brunette girls are serious girls and blond girls are perky girls.' That sort of complete B.S. And thankfully Alan has an imagination — clearly!" —Anna Paquin on auditioning for True Blood [Venice]
