Party Lines Slideshow: Francis Ford Coppola, Natalie Portman, Colin Firth, and More at the DGA Awards


Francis Ford Coppola, it turns out, can be pretty funny when he's not at all trying to be. At last week's DGA Awards, Vulture asked the legend what he thought of the directors behind this year's top films. "They're all men. They're all white." Anything else? "There are a lot of very talented guys here. David O. Russell has made four remarkable films in a row. Christopher Nolan, with films like Memento, is dazzling in the things he is willing to do." And The Dark Knight, we offered. "Dark Knight is not one of them. Memento is." For more amusing celebrity quotes, click through our Party Lines slideshow.
