Matthew Goode Not Ruling Out a Leap Year Sequel

“It’s turgid. I just know that there are a lot of people who will say it is the worst film of 2010. [The location] was the main reason I took it — so that I could come home at the weekends. It wasn’t because of the script, trust me. I was told it was going to be like The Quiet Man with a Vaughan Williams soundtrack, but in the end it turned out to have pop music all over it. … Was it a bad job? Yes, it was. But, you know, I had a nice time and I got paid.” —Leap Year star Matthew Goode on Leap Year [Telegraph UK]

“Noooooooo! Not my type.” —Justin Bieber on Miley Cyrus [Us]

“If you walk into a shebeen in South Africa, or whatever version of a bar they have in Kathmandu, if they have a jukebox, you’re going to find some Michael Jackson, some Otis Redding, some John Coltrane. It has gone around the world. That is the essential American contribution to worldwide culture. The combination of African rhythms and the pentatonic scale and European instrumentation and arrangement. That collision of the two happened in a 12-square block area of a city called New Orleans that had a near-death experience in 2005.” —Treme and The Wire creator David Simon [Guardian UK via TwentyFourBit]

“Do you ever feel like spite hate fucking John Mayer. Just to put him in his place, he’s a better guitarist than me but not better in bed! Say your fucking John Mayer totally throwing him around the room in bits and then you just BAM punch him in the face? good times… Mayer’s a little bland for me and youngish. I’ll do young, but he’s neither Yale Harvard Oxford and he’s not really rock, so not for me.” —Courtney Love [Twitter/CourtneyLover79 via Contact Music]

“There’s this very beautiful cooking show host in England named Nigella Lawson and I quietly had her as my image for this character.” —Tim Burton on his inspiration for the White Queen [LAT]

“I found Kristen to be through and through totally professional and just great to be around. I found us to be really, scarily similar, just in our physicality, the way we move through space. … When we were hanging out together on set, it was like I had a mirror image. Even just sitting around, we’d do the same thing at the same time. It was just great — and it wasn’t creepy. It was wonderfully special. … [The movie isn’t] painful for me to watch, so I think that’s a good sign.” —Joan Jett on The Runaways [Interview]

“You’d had all that shoegazing bollocks and then the whole Nirvana thing, which I thought was fucking rubbish — it was just America catching up with punk rock 20 years too fucking late for me, you know.” —Paul Weller [NME via Contact Music]
