Jon Hamm Texts Like a Sailor

“Whoever it is — it’s usually me and [John] Slattery — but we’ll get the scripts and immediately start texting each other, ‘Did you read this fucking script? What a script, holy shit.’ The episode ‘The Jet Set,’ when we read that, it was like, what in the fuck is going on here?” —Mad Men’s Jon Hamm [VF via Goldenfiddlr]

“I said this to the actors, “Nothing you ever talk about in this movie should be so important that you couldn’t be eating something simultaneously.” —Nora Ephron [Cinema Blend]

“But what gets cut out is some drunk guy being like, ‘Dude, I want a photo, man!’ And us being like, ‘We’re shooting a movie,’ and he’s like, ‘He’s a movie star, man, who cares?’ And you’re like, ‘Just please, shut up, man!’ So I guess the beauty of having permits and having a bigger budget is that you avoid drunks.” —Paper Heart’s Jake Johnson [AV Club]

“We got the ill chemistry together. I love Mary [J. Blige]. I hope one day we could … get together and just make an ill classic. Some Peaches & Herb. We just hop in real quick. Just one go-round, a one-off. That’s just fly.” —Ghostface Killah [MTV]

“The first image on the screen was the Queen sitting for a portrait, and she’s dressed in all her queenly drag. I was surprised and shocked. I just broke out laughing — and I have a very large laugh. She was saying, ‘Shhh! Stop it!’” —Taylor Hackford on seeing his wife, Helen Mirren, onscreen dressed as Queen Elizabeth II at the film’s premiere [Contact Music]

“I liked to smoke a bit of grass at the time, and I became very sheltered. Then I got bored. I was turning into a damn doughnut, really. So I moved as far away from that as I could. I was done.” —Brad Pitt [Parade via Contact Music]
