Kristen Bell’s Dream of Having Tons of Acne Crushed by Disney

“I actually wanted to go much further with it, but I came out of the makeup trailer with all of these whiteheads all over my face and Disney kind of pulled me back and said, ‘This isn’t a horror film, let’s just do your standard run-of-the-mill acne please.’” —Kristen Bell, on playing a nerd in You Again [Parade]

“I did not know what was required of me before I got to New Orleans. But the night before the second exorcism scene, Daniel [Stamm, the director] asked if there was anything I wanted to try. I said I was working on a backbend and several other physical things. And he said, ‘Yes, let’s put it in.’ Now I feel like every time I go on an audition, I have to do a backbend.” —Ashley Bell star of The Last Exorcism [WSJ/Speakeasy]

“I tend almost never to throw other films under the bus, but [Piranha 3D] is exactly an example of what we should not be doing in 3-D. Because it just cheapens the medium and reminds you of the bad 3-D horror films from the 70s and 80s, like ‘Friday the 13th 3-D.’” —James Cameron [MTV]

“I love her and want to be with her. Once she deals with the shock, I think [she’ll] say yes. I really do. In fact, I know she’ll say yes.” —Jeff Miranda, about proposing to Snooki via the cover of Steppin’ Out magazine [NYP]

“Once I started casting and planning and working with my production designer, I went, ‘Oh, [bleep], I wrote a script about a bunch of rich people. That’s going to be great for the budget.’” —Madonna, who is using her own furniture on the set of her screenwriting and directorial debut, W.E. [NYP/Page Six]

“Five for me and one for them. I have never really been one to go for the cash. If my dad knew how much money I had turned in my lifetime he would kick me in the ass.” —Mark Ruffalo [MTV]

“I read something like, how did someone keep a secret, and it’s — you know — human beings exist that have integrity that know how to keep their mouth shut. That know the bigger picture, that don’t sell out their friends. They know if they screw up they’re not coming on the next vacation, I’m not going to babysit their kids. I will cut them, I will take them down.” —Sandra Bullock, debunking the miracle of her secret adoption on Today [NYDN]
