“I wrapped a movie called Zombieland, in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character.

“Oh, gosh. Showtime. I like Showtime, it’s great. They let me do what I want to do. I appreciate it. I had to give them an award recently.

Everyone has these severe problems.” —Tracey Ullman on the misanthropic charm of Showtime [LAT]

“I think I have a better chance at getting an Oscar before a Grammy. The music industry is so fickle, there’s so many politics.” —Bow Wow on having his acting legacy covered [Contact Music]

Especially in a public place with a crowd of screaming extras with their little camera phones going click-click, taking pictures of your pasty white ass.

“I’ll strip down to my underwear and my Ugg boots when I eat lunch in my trailer.” —Eliza Dushku on her break outfit [Allure via People]
