Trent Reznor Hates the Grammys

“Grammy asshole weekend in LA. Yuck … The Grammys = the old guard / old media propping up their puppets trying to convince the outside world (and each other) they’re relevant.” —Trent Reznor [Trent_Reznor/Twitter via Pitchfork]

“By the time I was 16, 10 of my close friends had died. Some were suicides, some were accidents, some were just recklessness. There’s a flip side to having so much space and freedom. I had friends who started to feel trapped by life there, and friends who were just plain crazy. Most of the deaths were caused by accidents. You’d go into town and get smashed on drinks and then drive 60 miles home down a deserted road in the pitch dark at 2am. That was a common thing to do. My dad saved my life. He pulled me out of Wyoming when I was 16 and sent me to a boarding school in Massachusetts called Deerfield. I think he could see I was heading in the wrong direction in life. I was this absolute rebel who smoked and drank and put my boots on the desk. I hated it but looking back it was the best thing that could have happened to me.” —Matthew Fox [Live UK via Contact Music]

“Nobody wants to see an old hooker.” —Julia Roberts on Pretty Woman sequel rumors [Moviehole]

“As for what will happen with him and Kate, all I can say is they have a love that is undeniable, but maybe it must be denied.” —Josh Holloway [Parade]

“Yes, [population control should be] based on … stupid, fat faces. If there’s a woman in leggings, eating chips with a fag in her mouth, sterilise her.” —Ricky Gervais [Times UK]

“There’ll probably be a prequel of some kind with another actor and another director before we do another one, just because I think we’re probably another five years away from doing it — we’ve got to get a script.” —Matt Damon on the Bourne franchise [Empire via SlashFilm]
