Will Ferrell: Anchorman 2 Paycheck Totally Worth a Few Bad Reviews

Update: Ferrell’s quote comes from a 2009 interview that Contact Music thought was funny enough to run again today.

“I thought we were doing it. I was told it was happening and now I’ve heard it’s going to be too hard to get everyone together. … We don’t think we can make it as good. It would be really fun to do, so we might just try to make the craziest sequel you’ve ever seen. It could be terrible, but if they’re going to pay us to do it, then why not, right?” —Will Ferrell on Anchorman 2 [Zoo via Contact Music]

“Well, it’s hard because they pay a lot of money. Sometimes, when you want to buy an apartment in Manhattan, you gotta do one or two.” —Amanda Seyfried on whether actresses can swear off romantic comedies [VF]

“[Mike Myers is] working on ideas for it, people are definitely talking about it and I’m all good for it.” —Director Jay Roach on Austin Powers 4 [NYP]

“I think Diddy’s going to really shock people. We were saying Diddy’s kind of the McLovin of Get Him to the Greek. You don’t know what he’s going to do. Every time he breathes in the movie, it garners a huge laugh.” —Jonah Hill [MTV]

“I don’t know about Julianne [Moore], but I was counting down the days until we had to shoot our sex scene. When we finally did, we were both like, ‘OK, let’s go for it.’ It became a team effort. We just took off our clothes and hopped into bed and did seven takes.” —Amanda Seyfried on Chloe [Parade]

“I’m waiting on Frank [Miller] for the sequel to 300 and there’s a really good chance that will be the thing we do. … There was a big discussion about what we would do for the sequel to 300 and I said, ‘I didn’t tell Frank what to write the first time, and I’m not telling him what to write this time.’ I’ll take it and I’ll adapt it and make it into a movie and I’ll write a screenplay … I’m pretty confident it’s going to be awesome.” —Director Zack Snyder [Super Hero Hype via Playlist]

“Sandra, if you need me, sugar, call me, baby … ” —Mo’nique [Entertainment Tonight via Us]

“I find this wave of super-skinny women scary. … I look at the red carpet sometimes and it’s like a pageant. I’m quite a broad girl, not at all delicate. I watch what I eat to stay in shape, but I’m against diets. I eat when I’m hungry, three meals a day. … [I don’t like] my eyes. They look like peeholes in the sand. Hair, make-up, I make the most of myself.” —Catherine Zeta-Jones [OK!]

“I had an idea that we’d go back in time to when Marcus was first put in jail. They broke Linda Hamilton out of jail in [Terminator 2: Judgment Day], out of the nuthouse. In this one, they’d have to go back in time and break Marcus out of jail. It’s the same kind of mirror image.” —Sam Worthington on a potential Terminator Salvation sequel [MTV]

“He is stupid hot. It’s ridiculous. Even his hands are beautiful. [Kissing him is] unbelievable. Could you imagine if he sucked? I would have slapped him. … He gave me the movie [Spread] to watch. I watched it one day during lunch, but when I went back to work, I was like, ‘I don’t know if I could look at you right now. I know you far too intimately and I’m really uncomfortable … I’ve seen your O-face!” —Katherine Heigl on Ashton Kutcher [E! Online]
