Pressure’s On for Next Woody Allen Movie

"If you hate this film [You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger], I'm going to start a new film. If you hate both, I'm going to kill myself." —Woody Allen [USAT]

"It is such a rich instrument for one person. You can get so much out of it, like a one-man band. I also think it's a very romantic instrument, and it channels all the things I love — French culture, Tom Waits — and all the things I try to make my house look like." —Christina Hendricks on the accordion, which she plays [LAT via Stylelist]

“The saddest thing is that it runs the risk of making vampires not scary. I will be glad when the glut is over. Maybe they will be scary again. I like my creatures of the night a little nocturnal. My next big novel was going to have a vampire. Now, I’m probably not. They are everywhere, they’re like cockroaches." —Neil Gaiman on Twilight and the vampire craze [Independent UK]

"You know, that really wasn’t Kristin. She was told to say it. To tell a story on the show, for someone to take the blame, that’s kind of what we signed up for. We’d be filming a scene and she’d be like, 'I’m sorry.' And I’d say, 'Whatever, let’s just do this scene and go get coffee.' I was never mad at Kristin. I knew all along what was happening." —Stephanie Pratt on her purported feuds on The Hills [OK!]

"I've never spoken to anyone whose [sic] watched the show and been like, 'Yeah, I watched it once. Not really for me.' It's either, 'Yeah, I've heard about it. I've never actually watched,' or they're, 'Oh my God, it's my favorite show I've ever seen' and they freak out." —Zach Gilford on Friday Night Lights [HuffPo]

"Definitely. She can be the baby." —Robert Pattinson on what role Betty White can play in Twilight: Breaking Dawn [E!]

"I did a number of things [to prepare for Predators]. There was a physical transformation, which ultimately helped my level of confidence. I put on 10kg, I trained religiously, I changed my eating habits, I restricted my diet and my lifestyle. I isolated myself," he says. "The beginning of the movie was shot in Hilo, Hawaii, a very lush, dense rainforest, over 400ha of private rainforest. The owners allowed me to live in a one-room bungalow on the property. So, I lived on the property, didn't go back to the hotel, and I walked to work. I spent time on my own, building up confidence alone in the dense jungle. I read survival books, paramilitary manuals, and Special Forces Operations manuals. I also meditated." —Adrien Brody [NZ Herald]

"We make good TV together, and quite possibly without me they don't have a New Jersey Housewives. No one would tune in to watch the ham game. Or watch Jacqueline drink wine at 1 o'clock in the afternoon. I don't think people are entertained by that. But what they do tune in for is to watch them talking about me and me trying to stay away from them. It's incredible what a platform they've given me. So I have to say, 'Thank you, ladies. You're nothing without me on the show.'" —Real Housewives of New Jersey's Danielle Staub [Parade]
