Paul Bettany Really Enjoyed the Dwarf-Tossing Aspect of Filming Legion

“I had an embarrassing amount of fun. It was like playing with a bunch of 10-year-olds who don’t mind if you hit them. I had a scene where I threw a child zombie in the air who was attacking me. Actually, it was a small stunt person who was an adult. Everybody shot him and we were all giggling, even the poor guy who was being thrown. You can’t take that stuff seriously.” —Paul Bettany on Legion [Parade]

“I was very, very drunk. It was a very, very long time ago, when only sailors and Hell’s Angels were tattooed, honestly, and prisoners. And I decided to get a tattoo because it was the most shocking thing I could think of doing. And now I’m utterly disgusted and shocked because it’s become completely mainstream, which is unacceptable to me.” —Helen Mirren [Daily Mail UK]

“I am one tough mother-­fucker and you can’t bother me anymore. You ask anybody what their number one fear is and it’s public humiliation. Multiply that on a global scale and that’s what I’ve been through. It changes you and makes you one tough motherfucker. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. It’s really that simple.” —Mel Gibson [Telegraph UK]

“There are some people who might enjoy watching a 14-year-old girl getting killed, a small minority maybe, but how could you live with yourself in providing that titillation?” —Peter Jackson on The Lovely Bones [Telegraph UK]

“I remember waking up as the bus was swerving, and I didn’t think anything of it, because the bus has swerved so many times and nothing bad has ever happened. And the next thing I remember, the accident was over, and I couldn’t move. I could barely speak. I was trapped there, and I couldn’t move at all … I was definitely thinking, ‘Well, maybe this is it for me. Maybe I’m on the way out here.’” —Rivers Cuomo [MTV]

“[The lowest point] is yet to come, and it won’t be any secret. Horrible. Awful. On a scale of one to 10, it nears a 10.” —Jake Pavelka on what’s in store this season of The Bachelor [ET]
