Ron Artest’s Heart Will Go On

Titanic. When DiCaprio is trying to save the young lady, that was dope. When she tries to save him, and he dies, that was dope too. That whole situation was tragic. When I saw the baby in the water, frozen? I cried a little, but mostly I was pissed. I’d just had my daughter, so when I saw that frozen baby, I was like, ‘What the fuck!? That’s bullshit!’ And let’s not forget about Céline Dion. That woman is unbelievable. You know how much I love my music? Well, I wouldn’t put out a song for 10 years if that meant I could put out a song with her. Her voice sounds like pure fresh air. It sounds like what it sounded like when the world was created.” —Ron Artest on his favorite movie [ESPN]

“When you see her in person, she’s not that beautiful really … she’s just kind of average. If you were sitting next to her on the bus, you probably wouldn’t notice her.” —Will Ferrell on Eva Mendes [Parade]

“I am sensitive to Russell taking the Lord’s name in vain and to Lady Gaga putting a rosary in her mouth. I think when you put sex and spirituality in the same bottle and shake it up, bad things happen. … Yes, I said I kissed a girl. But I didn’t say I kissed a girl while fucking a crucifix.” —Katy Perry [RS via NYDN]

“I’ve been dying to do a comedy for a long time. There have been comedic elements in performances I’ve done in the past, but to take on a full-blown comedy coming from a dramatic background, it’s a risky move. If it’s not good, they’ll crucify you and you’ll obviously never get the chance to do it again.” —Mark Wahlberg on The Other Guys [Parade]

“He’s kind of like my dream co-star — not kind of like, he is. Anchorman is my favorite movie of all time and Ron Burgundy is one of my favorite characters of all time. It’s my Gone With the Wind. All I did was quote Anchorman on a daily basis. So it was a dream come true in a sense.” —Eva Mendes on her Other Guys co-star Will Ferrell [Parade]

“I’ve enjoyed almost everything she’s in. I enjoyed even the comedy she did. I can’t remember the name of it, but she has this blonde wig on and she played this ditzy character.” —Jon Voight on daughter Angelina Jolie [Movieline]

“Oh my gosh! I would love to, to get to beat [Ryan Reynolds] up! Best day ever! … I think [his wife, Scarlett Johansson] would beat him up too! She’s Black Widow! She was terrific! She’s got to teach me how to fight!” —Blake Lively, Reynolds’s co-star and eventual nemesis in Green Lantern [MTV]

“I don’t meet a lot of stupid homosexuals. They seem to be a pretty smart bunch. But it seemed that they were not picking up on the fact that it was a very sympathetic portrayal of a transsexual character.” —Seth MacFarlane, surprised that the LGBT community disliked an episode of Family Guy in which Brian vomits after discovering he’s had sex with a transsexual [Details]

“I would also like to play something on the lighter side, like Tina Fey in 30 Rock. It would be a nice change of pace; a little reprieve. I could go to work and laugh instead of cry.” —January Jones [HR]

“Oh, I was totally proud of that, and I still am. It was a great bit, and it got a great reaction. More than anything else, though, I remember that it was written very well, because the emphasis wasn’t on it being gay but on making sure the scene worked and was funny. It was great that it showed people it was just a normal thing. … [But he was] probably one the worst kissers I’ve ever kissed.” —Joseph Gordon-Levitt on kissing Topher Grace on That ‘70s Show [Advocate]
