Taylor Swift Basically Over, Says Wynonna Judd

“You want my honest comment? It’s too much too soon. Time is God’s way of keeping everything from happening at once. It’s just too much of a good thing too soon. My thing is, being a home-school mum, I want kids to earn it, and I think some time … ‘cause mum and I rode in a car for the first year of our career to visit radio stations. There was a making of the star, there was a rising up, and the fans went with us. Now it’s over coffee breaks, the success, almost. You have to play catch up … It’s like the girl who wins an Oscar and she’s under 20. What do you do from here?” —Wynonna Judd on Taylor Swift’s win for Entertainer of the Year at the Country Music Awards [Us]

“I was being stalked by a mime — silent, but maybe deadly.” —Nicolas Cage on his stalker [Parade]

“The movie is about the loss of things, the absence of things, the lack of things. The lack of the wife/mother is present in every frame of the film. The delicate edifice of the film holds the ache of her absence, tenderly and by the tips of the fingers. The music was composed as a direct response to the film. A light, haunting, simple score with a sense of absence and loss at its heart.” —Nick Cave on scoring The Road [Spin]

“Oh my God, isn’t it just terrible! I want to shake everyone and ask them that question. Making films is about having absolute and foolish confidence; the challenge for all of us is to have the heart of a poet and the skin of an elephant.” —Mira Nair’s answer to why there aren’t more female directors [Guardian UK]

“I can’t go on thrill rides anymore because I get physically ill. But we filmed on sets where everything was bouncing around like a roller coaster. The worst was where we’re supposed to nearly crash in a plane that was mounted on a gimbal. It gyrated so wildly that I got really nauseous. Every night I’d go home and be like, ‘Am I still on the gimbal? Did I come down yet? Did I throw up?’” —Amanda Peet on filming 2012 [Parade]

“That is something I am still dealing with. Growing up, there were women I looked up to like Jodie Foster. I know people are watching to see what I’ll do now.” —Kristen Stewart [Mizz via Showbiz Spy]
