Anthony Hopkins Is Maybe Being a Little Dramatic About a Recent Bad Shopping Experience

“We’re living in a pretty strange time. I went into a shop to buy my wife some clothes and I wanted them gift-wrapped. And they had this big plasma screen on with these women on the catwalk. I thought, ‘God almighty, what have we become?’ These girls — anorexic, walking like machines, no soul. You look at fashion magazines and you think, ‘What are we living in?’ You look at the red carpet, Paris Hilton, you know, these people and you think, ‘Is there anything going on up there?’ It’s a mass enslavement and it’s kind of fascism. And it’s the androgyny of it; the androgyny of the human soul.” —Anthony Hopkins [Daily Express UK]

“I’ve always wanted to do some sort of musical. That’s a dream for me. Maybe play Kurt Cobain.” —Jeremy Renner [People via Contact Music]

“Critics can stab at Cop Out with their poison pens all they want, but it still doesn’t change the fact that it’s a funny flick.” —Kevin Smith [ThatKevinSmith/Twitter]

“[She’s] so cool, I can’t believe it, actually. … I don’t mean to talk about a three-year-old as if she’s down-to-earth or not, you know what I mean? I’m just saying she’s very outgoing and fun.” —Adam Brody on Suri Cruise [OK!]

“It’s not what I seen in the script, it’s what I didn’t see. I’m playing a black man who didn’t have to drive nobody around and call nobody Miss Daisy. I didn’t have to lift no heavy boxes or work at FedEx, so I was good with it. I said, ‘Sign me on.’” —Tracy Morgan on Cop Out [Parade]

“I have a strong desire to continue acting. I would love to be funny. I think I am funny. I wonder if that would translate into film.” —Gabourey Sidibe [USA Today via Jezebel]

“I was disappointed when it didn’t become a gay anthem, but, you know, it’s not too late.” —Vampire Weekend’s Rotsam Batmanglij on “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend,” a song made with side project band Discovery [Out]

“They could tell that I was actually nervous, and they said ‘What? It’s not like it’s your first kiss or anything.’ And I’m like ‘Mmm-hmm.’” —Alia Shawkat on having her first kiss on the set of Arrested Development [AV Club via CCInsider]

“I just auditioned and I got the gig.” —Steven Tyler on rejoining Aerosmith for a European tour this summer [Aerosmith via HuffPo]

“I don’t know if I’ve ever been in a serious romantic comedy. I wouldn’t mind doing that genre. … I honestly feel there’s maybe nothing better that you can see on film, or even in life, than watching people fall in love with each other. If you’re like me, I’m totally glued to it.” —Woody Harrelson [HuffPo]
