Drew Barrymore Disparages Worthless Puppies, Daisies

“I make movies. I have a passion. Puppies and daisies don’t accomplish anything. That’s not me at all … For three years straight … I’ve been so aggressive about living life to the fullest and being plugged into everything, but now I’ve ripped the plug out of the wall and put it on the floor for a while. I’m thinking about the same things as when I was 15, about spirituality and who I am, who I want to be. It’s cocoon, pupa, larva, and fuck, I’m reborn!” —Drew Barrymore [Elle]

“I think artistically [shooting Twilight: Breaking Dawn in 3-D] would be awesome because nobody knows what it’s like to look through the eyes of a vampire. What if it’s like — what if she opens her eyes to this extraordinary world. It could be cool. The baby part — it’s easy to joke around about how weird that’d be, but it wouldn’t be the whole thing. It would be parts.” —Kristen Stewart [MTV]

“Mr. Nolan is a beautiful example of someone doing exactly what they want to do. This movie wasn’t developed by committee … I think that goes to show that more than ever there’s room for quality and challenging things to become popular. Sure, there’s still a lot of stupid stuff out there but things are changing, I think. And I’d say that Ellen [Page] and I are also examples.” —Joseph Gordon-Levitt on Inception [Hero Complex/LAT]

“I love Lil Wayne; that’s like my little brother. He’s just the coolest dude on Earth. I tell you one thing, him not being high made me realize how much funnier he is. This guy has jokes. We were up in there for four hours, just telling jokes, dying laughing, falling on the floor. He’s a beautiful dude. He did what he did. He had a gun on him, but people don’t really know how much of a great father that he is, great of a person he is, a friend, a loyal dude. He’s charismatic. It’s just sad to see him over there like that, but I’m pretty sure he learned his lesson, and he’s gonna be focused.” —Fat Joe after visiting Lil Wayne in prison [MTV]

“It’s ridiculous. … I was like, “Are you sure? There must be some mistake.”” —Friday Night Lights’ Connie Britton on being nominated for an Emmy [Ausiello Files/EW]

“We’re so used to it now, but those undergarments really aren’t made for relaxing. If I get my entire costume on, and I have to wait a few hours for my next scene, I have to learn how to position myself, otherwise the boning presses into my guts! It can really hurt those internal organs! I have this little war wound — a blister from wearing a garter the other day for 17 hours.” —Christina Hendricks on the Mad Men costumes [LAT Magazine]

“The thing is, no one big in Hollywood would play [Linda Lovelace] because it has to do with porn. That’s a taboo thing for actresses. Lindsay, I think, will really be able to tap into Linda Lovelace because they might have a lot of things in common.” —Porn star Jesse Jane on Lindsay Lohan [MTV]

“It’s funny, when I was younger I used to lie in bed and think, ‘What will I do if I ever get famous and they find out I’m gay?’ I would really angst about that. It just happened so naturally and I didn’t hide anything.” —Jane Lynch [Mirror UK]
