Hugh Jackman Keeps a Souvenir

“I do know that it’s a PG-13 movie so, old James Roger wasn’t going to be seen on the big screen. But I did get a gift from Gavin Hood who handed me some cut film, he said, ‘There it is, mate. I’ve put it in a baggie and you can have it, I don’t want it.’” —Hugh Jackman on taking his James Roger home in a baggie [Dish Rag/LAT]

“I felt I became a star only by association. We would go to the Oscars and I would think, I’m here to support him. I felt it was my job to put on a beautiful dress and be seen and not heard.” —Nicole Kidman on being married to Tom Cruise [Easy Living via Marie Claire UK]

“That was one of the first things I wrote. I was listening to a lot of Stravinsky at the time. I know people mention classical music and it sounds like a pretentious thing, but man, Stravinsky, he grooved. He’s like the Dr. Dre of the orchestral world as far as I’m concerned. Seriously, like the chronic.” —Annie Clark of St. Vincent [Spinner]

“It made me sick — my name’s Keith Richards. It hardly makes it against Howlin’ Wolf or Muddy Waters, does it? On my first guitar I had Boy Blue written — just pathetic. But that was as good as I got at the time.” —Keith Richards [Guardian UK]

“I said, ‘I’ve got to set the tone here, I’m going to be in the best shape — more than I’ve ever been before.’ I wasn’t a great dinner party guest. I would say, ‘Great to be here. Now, can I have some steamed chicken and steamed vegetables?’” —Leonard Nimoy preparing to accept his award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films [Female First]

“As bad as I felt for Melissa, who I hope feels better and comes back, I’m used to our cowboy athletes that live by the rule: ‘ride hurt or don’t get a score’ … It may seem harsh, but it seems like the only way to keep things honest. If you’re too hurt to compete, then you can’t compete.” —Jewel laying down the law on injured Dancing With the Stars contestant Melissa Rycroft [TV Guide]
