Diddy Reaffirms Position on Hatin’ Ass Crabs

“I love my people. Let’s stop the hate, congratulate. Hate is for suckas. If you hatin’, then you’s a sucka. You’re ashy and your breath stink. And you know who I’m talking to, you hatin’ ass crab.” —Diddy to 50 Cent, indirectly [BET Awards via Miss Info]

“To me, it wasn’t my wife I had to worry about; Helen will go for whatever. It was Sergio [Peris-Mencheta]. Think about that: He’s acting with an actress who’s married to the guy behind the camera. He’s got to put his hands on her breasts. He’s got to the things [sic] that make it real. I was just saying to him, ‘Listen, this is an acting scene like any other acting scene. If you don’t do it correctly, then we’re going to be doing it over and over again, and it’s going to be ugly. Make it work. Don’t worry about me, because I understand what you’re doing. And you have to go for it.’” —Taylor Hackford on directing his wife Helen Mirren in the upcoming Love Ranch [Movieline]

“A lot of country music is sad. I think most art comes out of poverty and hard times. It applies to music. Three chords and the truth — that’s what a country song is.” —Willie Nelson [Parade]

“[My cat and I] have a really strong, really weird codependent, almost Bella/Edward relationship. I’m going to be a crazy cat lady one day, I’m sure.” —Kristen Stewart [People]

“He was smoking this fake weed you can buy from High Times magazine called Fake Budz. It looks and burns like weed and it’s totally organic so if the actors don’t smoke cigarettes it’s not gonna hurt them. We even used it for props because it comes on a branch. Adrien said when he read the script he laughed so hard that he pulled a muscle in his neck!” —HIGH School director John Stahlberg on Adrien Brody’s smoking habits while filming [Daily Express UK]

“We want to step into that world of carelessness, of just not thinking, of just being naive. That’s why these stories appeal to so many women, as well as girls.” —Twilight star Nikki Reed on Twilight [Telegraph UK]

“I believe we will live in a world where androids will live among us and develop human characteristics and emotions. Technology is advancing so fast that in two years, computers will have mapped out the human brain to the extent that you won’t be able to recognise the difference between your mother calling to say hello and an android.” —Janelle Monáe on her new album, The ArchAndroid [Telegraph UK]

“It’s just great watching Tom [Cruise] — even doing those characters again for the MTV Movie Awards was so much fun. He’s such a hard worker — and funny, improvising lines — like when [Tom as Les] yelled at Jaden Smith, and Will Smith said, ‘Come on, man, he’s only 11 years old!’ and Tom said, ‘I don’t care if he’s TEN!’ Tom came up with that — on top of everything else, he’s really funny.” —Bill Hader, excited about the Les Grossman movie [In Touch]

“I am talking to Clint Eastwood about playing J. Edgar Hoover, who had his hand in some of the most scandalous moments in American history. Everything from Dillinger to Martin Luther King and JFK. It’s about the secret life of J. Edgar Hoover. … We haven’t done the fitting for [dresses]. So I don’t think so.” —Leonardo DiCaprio on whether he’ll cross-dress [Chud]

“I would rather be hit in the face with a board repeatedly than listen to me, the sound of my voice, and see me do stand-up.” —Janeane Garofalo [AV Club]

“It’s not the most important thing in my life. Acting helped me as I was growing up. It helped me learn about myself, helped me travel, helped me understand life, express myself, all those wonderful things. So I’m very, very grateful, it’s a fun job. It’s a luxury. Look, I’m at work today in the middle of Venice. But I don’t think I’ll do it much longer.” —Angelina Jolie [VF]

“Yes, I have to say that I think it’ll be the water cooler scene, perhaps, of the whole season. … I believe it was actually Alan [Ball]’s idea — and it was scripted quite matter of factly. It said, ‘Bill throws Lorena on the bed, they start having sex and he takes her head and starts to twist it around until it’s completely the other way.’ … My jaw was on the floor [as I read it], and I thought, oh my poor parents. A lot of us cringe when we turn the pages and immediately think of grandpa, grandma, mom and dad. Luckily my parents are fans of the show.” —Mariana Klaveno on her twisted-head True Blood sex scene [Pop Wrap/NYP]

“It’s because it’s edgy and sexy. Everything else is kinda chained and pussy. With True Blood, you don’t know what to expect. You don’t know how wild it’s gonna get. It’s like the Jerry Springer of TV shows.” —Nelsan Ellis, who plays Lafayette on True Blood [Vibe]

“They couldn’t remake it because it would destroy it, but I’ve always loved The Lost Boys. The female character in it is not really amazing, but if you were to turn one of the male characters into a female, I would love to do that.” —Megan Fox [MTV UK]
