Lady Gaga Has This Weird Thing That If She Sleeps With Someone, They’re Going to Take Her Creativity From Her Through Her Vagina

“I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina.” —Lady Gaga [VF]

“No! I was just singing songs for the movie. I think the original plan was they wanted the bona fide crew to re-sing our songs, and then when [Sony Music Nashville chair] Joe Galante heard it, he was like, ‘No, I want to release this as the single.’ I was like, ‘Excuse me please? What? What is going on?’” —Gwyneth Paltrow on whether she knew her country song, “Country Strong” (from her upcoming movie of the same name), would be released as a single [Music Mix/EW]

“I remember one in particular. It was pilot season, and it was a procedural kind of show, and I went in to play the wife of a cop. I had to break down and cry and all these things. I left so confident. I was like, ‘I killed that.’ … [But] I got a call from my agent a couple hours later: ‘What were you wearing? The casting director was so offended by what you were wearing.’ Now, let me tell you what I was wearing: gray dress pants from Banana Republic and a navy-blue silk top from Donna Karan, which was the nicest thing I owned. It was a little low-cut, because most things are; I just happen to be bustier than a lot of people. It was very classy and very nice, and the casting director was so offended by my breasts that she called my agent and said, ‘I couldn’t even hear her audition because of what she was wearing.’ I was like, ‘You pathetic woman. I just killed that audition so hard, and you’re so distracted by what I’m wearing that you didn’t see my acting. And I put on my nicest duds for you!’” —Christina Hendricks on her worst audition [ABC]

“I have never heard that before! I don’t think anybody can be better at being Elizabeth Taylor than Elizabeth Taylor.” —Angelina Jolie on the rumors she’d play Liz in a biopic [E!]

“I love Heidi but our marriage was a show — it was part of The Hills world. … I just want to be a reality superstar. Once these [Jersey] Shores boys are done I am on the bench coach ready to make ratings.” —Spencer Pratt [SpencerPratt/Twitter]

“I’m not actually playing Lincoln now. I was attached to it for a while, but it’s now — I’m past my sell-by date.” —Liam Neeson on playing Abraham Lincoln in a Steven Spielberg–directed biopic [ScreenRant]

“Being a public figure, I’m supposed to present myself in a certain way, but it’s hard and you’re never going to be able to tell people who you are properly. It’s sort of impossible. It’s much easier for a guy to say what he wants and not to be cute and funny all the time, but, if you’re a strong sort of woman, you’re just, for lack of a better word, a bitch.” —Kristen Stewart [MusicRooms]

“We know where he lives. We’re going to stalk him. He’s not getting away from us.” —The Office’s Phyllis Smith (Phyllis) on Steve Carell leaving the show [Show Tracker/LAT]

“I do miss Summer terribly. The OC was the most phenomenal time. I saw Mischa at Cannes, but I honestly miss everyone from the show. … I do fall out of cars, but not because I am drunk, but because I am clumsy. I think the girls who come to fame younger fall into all that partying, but I did it before I became famous. I mean I was 21 when The OC started, Mischa was 16. I can’t imagine dealing with that kind of success at that age. My life may have been very different if I had started out that young.” —Rachel Bilson [InStyle UK via Amy Grindhouse]
