Jeff Daniels Would Go to Work Even If He Were Choking on Sushi

“I’m old-school. I don’t have any patience for not adhering to that. There’s a responsibility to show up, even more with us [four] to do the show no matter what … [One night onstage] I was eating clafouti. It went down the wrong pipe. I was like a cat with a hairball. We kept on going; after, I went into complete hairball mode.” —God of Carnage’s Jeff Daniels [Daily News]

“Three of the members from the band DeBarge. Nobody remembers them. Nobody. I don’t hang out with famous people. I think they’re jerks.” —Zach Galifianakis on the most famous people on his speed dial [Suicide Girls]

“They took part of my elbow out. I had really bad nerve damage from doing stunts — I do a lot of my own stunts. I could no longer use my arm, but now I can hold a fork and drive, so we’re working our way up. It’ll probably be another six months of rehab, but it’s the price you pay for being really limber and being able to do back flips.” —Rose McGowan can finally hold a fork [Fox via PopEater]

“What people don’t understand: I don’t even want to see a poster for the movie! It reminds me what I do is no longer personal and it sends me into this weird spiral of self-loathing. All the people in my life know the drill. Do not come over to my house and say, ‘Hey, guess what I read today?’ Do not do it.” —Diablo Cody[TheFrisky]

“I turned down George Clooney for sex. He was cute, and he asked me out! But there was always hostility between the writers and the actors, because the actors earned more. So I said, ‘I don’t go out with actors.’ Years later, living in London, now with two babies and covered in vomit, I had a visit from one of my writer friends. We were watching ER, and I was like, ‘Wow, look at that Dr. Ross. Isn’t he gorgeous?’ And she was like, ‘That’s the guy you cast who asked you out.’ I screamed, I cried, I lay in the fetal position on the floor. I should probably call George up now and say, ‘About that date …’” —Kathy Lette has regrets [Female First]
