“Architecture is like play to me. As a boy, you play with Tinkertoys, Lincoln Logs, Legos, and you get interested in how things are made, like cars and drills and all that. Years later you come back around to what interested you as a boy. Now, if I have something that I’m dealing with that’s causing me a lot of stress, my mind goes to architecture. I walk around the yard and start thinking about what I need to do to the house structurally. It’s similar to puzzles in that way, like a crossword puzzle or anything else I can put my mind into. It’s a relief for me.” —Brad Pitt [Parade via ShowbizSpy]

“I started making teen films because if I was going to direct, I wanted to make sure I didn’t have an actor saying to me, ‘You have no idea what you’re doing,’ because I didn’t. I figured, well, maybe if they’re like 15, they won’t ask me that question, or at least I could say to them, ‘Do you know what you’re doing?’ and they wouldn’t know either. It’s all coincidental.” —John Hughes in a 1992 interview [MTV]

“Are you kidding? How is ‘Put my dick in your ass’ not raunchy?” —Katherine Heigl responds to an Australian audience that thought The Ugly Truth could’ve been raunchier [The Age]

“May I add that I am at perhaps my least glamorous when I am cooking, especially for other people. I am usually in a flop sweat, snapping at anyone in my line of sight. I’m in direct line with my mother on this one. She had a needlepoint pillow that read, ‘I’m making my favorite thing for dinner — reservations.’ ” —Meryl Streep on Julie and Julia [ShowbizSpy]

“The first take, the DP [director of photography] comes up to me and says, ‘Whatever you do, don’t drop her.’ I never dropped anybody in my entire life, and I dropped Sienna Miller. It was the worst, man.” —Channing Tatum on dropping Miller on the set of G.I. Joe [Female First]

“He dropped me very heroically.” —Sienna Miller [Female First]
