Avatar’s Sex Scene to Disappoint Fans of ‘Horizontal Bopping’

"You know, we got an interesting reaction from a test audience to that moment. Maybe it was because it wasn’t finished, but I always felt that it was a good moment, so I wanted to put it back in. I mean, what have I got to lose? The film’s already a big hit. I think it’s actually an illumination of the Na’vi way: There’s a Na’vi way for everything, including making love. Of course, I just want to be clear for the record that it’s only an additional twenty seconds. The 'horizontal bop' part of it still takes place off camera after the dissolve." —James Cameron on restoring the Avatar sex scene for the movie's rerelease [Movieline]

"We told her about the rumor [that she would be a target] and she didn’t care. ... We paid her before the show and assured her that even if things got out of hand, she could keep the money if she had to leave the stage. ... I wish they didn’t throw stuff at her." —Violent J on Tila Tequila being pelted with rocks and feces at the Gathering of the Juggalos [TMZ]

"People think pop is rock, and the lines are getting blurred. Now Rihanna's wearing fuckin' leather jackets, and it's really annoying." —Taylor Momsen [Spin]

"It's really funny because I have just heard about this for the first time today. It's news to me. I'm flattered I suppose." —Angelina Jolie on the rumor she'd be playing Marilyn Monroe [Sky]

"I have seen Twilight. It's turned into a strange family tradition, we see the movies as a family now. I'm not quite sure why it's turned into a family tradition but ... that's just how it is now." —Dave Franco, brother of James [Celebuzz]

"Amazingly, by way of a mutual friend of his son Christian, I learned that even Marlon Brando thought Pee-wee was a real person! He couldn’t believe I was an actor." —Paul Reubens [Playboy]

"People talked about my weight for an entire year. Being famous for gaining 10lbs is ridiculous! I didn't feel as fat as everybody was making me out to be. Even the president felt he had to make a comment — although I think he was caught off guard as the picture was thrown in front of his face!" —Jessica Simpson [Closer via HuffPo]

"I love all my children, but Suri is my fountain of youth." —Tom Cruise [Bild via People]
