“They don’t sell my size on the rack sir, they had to build mine from scratch and those suits are unforgiving. Really unforgiving. Not only does it accentuate the shape that you’re not in, but it also fucking accentuates the fact that you don’t have a dick to speak of. It’s the most humiliating piece of clothing a fat person could ever put on.” Kevin Smith on donning a wetsuit for a role [IGN]

“[Tom] just really wanted to capture on film a father yelling at his son, so we’ve got that forever on film. Now, he never has to yell at me — he can just put the tape in and press play.” Colin Hanks on the perks of having his father Tom play his father in the film The Great Buck Howard [MTV]

“This was one of the things I’m most proud of. Every time I see it, I like it less and less. They sold it as a romantic fairytale when in fact it’s a story about a prostitute who becomes a lady by being kept by a rich and powerful man. I think that film is degrading for the whole of womankind.” Darryl Hannah, who happily turned down the title role in Pretty Woman [Variety]

“There was a line — I think it was cut out of the basketball episode in our first season — where Dwight took over the vacation schedule, and Jim says to Dwight, ‘That’s the smallest amount of power I’ve ever seen go to anyone’s head.’ And I think that pretty much sums it up.” —The Office’s Rainn Wilson on his character Dwight [EW]

“We need to get the fun back in hip-hop. Everything can’t be all serious and darkest places. We all know where those places are, many of us come from that. But we’ve also been around the block and rappers have to start bringing some of those stories back. Stop pretending like you don’t eat well now, like you can’t buy a good meal, like you don’t eat organic food. I eat organic food, and I’m not ashamed to say it.” Queen Latifah encourages rappers to sing about their additive- and pesticide-free lifestyles [Rolling Stone]
