“Actually, I did hang out at Sleepys. In fact, I talked to such a sweet and charming salesman that I ended up buying a bed, which was not my intention. The next day I had to cancel my order, which I still feel very bad about. Hopefully I can go back and actually buy a bed from that guy someday, so he gets his commission.”—Paul Dano on preparing for his role in Gigantic [92Y]

“They want me to send them a copy, so we will — but, like everyone else, they have to wait ‘til April 10th. Even the President.”—Miley Cyrus withholding her new movie from Sasha and Malia Obama [Female First]
