Glee Actors: Broke, Hungry

“I just didn’t think a film about a drunken small guy was remotely funny. The reality about alcoholics is that they’re boring and tedious, and I’d spent enough nights in pubs with drunken boys to know it was not something I’d ever want to be caught up in. And I particularly objected to the way women were depicted—which was something I felt about most movies I saw back then—as kind of slave-enablers.” —Helen Mirren, about the movie Arthur, the remake of which she is currently filming [NYT]

“The jackpot is high, so why not try?” —George Clooney, after buying 1,000 lottery tickets in Laglio, Italy [NYP]

“She is a little more popular than I am, so that’s kind of hard for me, but that’s what happens when you star in a show and you have a breakout star like my mom. I am the sidekick tonight. I am her wingman.” —Kathy Griffin, about taking her mom to the Emmys [Us]

“She’s a bad bitch. I think she’s really, really perky.” —Nicki Minaj, about her celebrity crush, Charlize Theron [People]

“Oh, I’m loose as a goose. It’s fantastic. I discovered tonight, this is the way to win an Emmy. Win it a week early.” —John Lithgow [LAT]

“I guess “The Wrestler” was the most straightforward thing I’ve done. I think I was trying to make a sports film. I guess I don’t do genre very well.” —Darren Aronofsky [MTV]

“I’m so grateful. It’s like having a great meal to do the show, and then to be awarded an Emmy is a beautiful flambé dessert, and then last year was another dessert on top of that. I feel gluttonous. And it’s more than I can take in. It really is. I feel like I’m going to become a diabetic. So it’s actually a reprieve that I can relax next year and let things go. It really is.” —Bryan Cranston on Breaking Bad’s upcoming season not being eligible for next year’s Emmys [LAT]
