Vera Farmiga: Over

“On the second day of filming George looked at me with a twinkle in his eye and said, ‘This is a career-ender for you. You’re always going to be known as the gal that leaves George Clooney.’ I know he was joking, but I thought, ‘What if it’s true?’” —Vera Farmiga [Parade]

“I want to learn to play pool. I don’t want to be one of those chicks in a bar that needs her boyfriend to set up a shot for her. That would be a life goal.” —Anna Kendrick [MTV]

“I would not advise any actor necessarily, if he was really thinking of his career, to come out. The fact is that you could not be, and still cannot be, a 25-year-old homosexual trying to make it in the British film business or the American film business or even the Italian film business. It just doesn’t work and you’re going to hit a brick wall at some point. You’re going to manage to make it roll for a certain amount of time, but at the first sign of failure they’ll cut you right off. And I’m sick of saying, ‘Yes, it’s probably my own fault.’ Because I’ve always tried to make it work and when it stops working somewhere, I try to make it work somewhere else. But the fact of the matter is, and I don’t care who disagrees, it doesn’t work if you’re gay.” —Rupert Everett [Sun UK]

“They’re amazing. I’ve seen it go too far, but I love it.” —Adam Lambert on his overzealous fans [MTV]

’I’d been a Beatles fan in my teens because it was embarrassing not to be really. Other than that, though, I didn’t know much. But in a way that was an advantage. For me, reading the script was just like reading a bonkers old family saga. I loved the fact that on the one hand it felt like every other fucked up family, but on the other it was the genesis of this genius.” —Anne-Marie Duff on playing John Lennon’s mother in Nowhere Boy [Telegraph UK]

It’s pure coincidence — even though I do use Jon Hamm from Mad Men in a voice-over role. There is nothing about Mad Men and A Single Man that are similar except that they are both set in 1962.” —Tom Ford [Advocate]
