“I’m actually quite docile, but sometimes I just lose it. I literally see red and it’s as if my head explodes. I often start crying when that’s the case. I generally cry a lot. And of course I’ve thrown stuff around in rage. I remember wrecking a public pay phone once by tearing it off the wall with all my might.” —Helen Mirren [ShowbizSpy]

“I hope Stephenie Meyer writes another book that we get to act in also.” —Twilight actor Kellan Lutz [Contact Music]

“[Steve Coogan] was very, very nice — nicely spoken, didn’t know he was a super freak! Didn’t know that. He’s a super freak as it turns out, but you know, it was the last stand of me doing drugs. It was like two, three weeks … at one point Billy Bob Thornton comes to the pool when I’m in the middle of like this crazy weird three weeks with him [Coogan] … he [Thornton] talked in my ear and he said, ‘Get out of whatever you’re in’ … So then I had to go to rehab and I thought I’d ruined [Coogan’s] career. I didn’t know he’d had this whole history, I hadn’t read anything. So I was walking around rehab going, ‘God, I’ve ruined a man’s career, I’ve ruined it, I’ve ruined it.’ Without knowing I’d actually made him really cool.” —Courtney Love [Contact Music]

“I made a September resolution to not go on the Internet to look for what’s being said about me … I read something about myself and it made me so sad … So I lost my Internet privileges.” —Joanna Newsom [WSJ]

Miami Vice? I didn’t like it so much.” —Colin Farrell [Total Film via IMDb]
