Drugs to Blame for Mike Tyson’s Career Renaissance

“I [did The Hangover] to supply my drug habit. I thought [it] was going to be really good, we’re going to sell this stuff at 42nd St. on bootleg, and we’re going to get a lot of money. This is my best thinking on drugs.” —Mike Tyson, who is sober now [ESPN via NYDN]

“[F]ive months from today.” —Amy Winehouse on when her next album will be released [Lela London]

Fresh Prince, the Movie. I’ve been pushing for it for years. I’m not [kidding]! Fresh Prince, the Movie. They did Brady Bunch, the movie, and I was in that.” —James Avery, a.k.a. Uncle Phil [Yahoo]

“[Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner] would prefer we didn’t work out and that we eat really well, so we look like healthy women. … [I]t’s OK to have curves and be a woman. I wish more women would realize that’s what men like. … I don’t think we’ve come very far [in regards to sexism]. At least they were gentlemen back then. They might say something shitty behind your back, but at least they opened the door.” —January Jones [Tatler via Daily Mail UK]

“The worst thing ever, cell phone cameras. I mean, okay, you see me in a bar. And it’s sort of, yeah, I’m here. And you’re here, too. And isn’t that kind of enough? But then the cameraphones come out. … And it gets worse after midnight. I tell you, I don’t like being out after midnight. People drink and get weird. Hey, I drink and get weird.” —Bill Murray [NJ]

“I want to ruin his reputation. He’s funny all the time. He’s not, like, a miserable guy sometimes and a funny guy other times. He’s really a pretty happy guy and funny, and the thing that I love, one of the things that I love most, is that when he meets people out, he’s so wonderful to them and respectful and funny. And it’s rare.” —Sissy Spacek on Bill Murray [NJ]

“There is no actress that can achieve the dramatic level we require of this role other than Lindsay [Lohan].” —Linda Lovelace biopic Inferno producer Chris Hanley [E!]

“I kinda thought the haircut was weird too, [but] what do I know. The stylists assured me it’s what young guys were doing—they copy it down to the product they use in our hair. It’s amazing the kind of research they do—Matt [Weiner], and all the stylists. Joey Baird’s look is representative of the evolving style in 1964.” —Matt Long, a.k.a. Joey Baird, Peggy’s writing partner on Mad Men [Interview]
