James Lipton to Blame for Noomi Rapace’s Interviews

“For me, acting is my job, and I’m supposed to be traveling around talking about it. So to not have the words — I just decided that it couldn’t be like that. I’ve started watching some kind of channel called Starz, and a show called Inside the Actors Studio. It’s very interesting.” —Noomi Rapace, star of the Swedish Girl With The Dragon Tattoo [LAT]

“I don’t age gracefully in the last film when all of us get older. My hair is still red but I have a lot less of it. It was quite a shock when I saw myself in the mirror. I felt like I was looking at Donald Trump because they gave me that comb over that he has.” —Rupert Grint on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows [Parade]

“Mostly it’s not a lot of that stuff anymore with shooting and killing and dying and blood. I’m getting a little older, you know. The running and the jumping and killing, it’s a little past me.” —James Gandolfini on Welcome to the Rileys [NYT]

“A lot of our friends were kids making noise music. Just really loud, harsh noise stuff … And to me that was just so punk. It’s more punk than, like, punk rock music. It’s just anti-parent music. So it’s sort of grown from trying to make something that intense but also really pretty. —Dean Spunt of No Age [Pitchfork]

“I have such a fan base in Canada that people were hitting me and asking ‘Did you know that Justin Bieber took your line?’ I kinda laughed and smirked at it.” —Canadian rapper Tory Lanez after hearing that Justin Bieber, alias Shawty Mane, had sampled his lyrics for a rap song [MTV]

“He definitely has an aura about him. When you’re in his presence, there’s an energy. Everyone around him can feel it. We were following him through his hometown and I lost him for a second, and I was like, Where the heck is he? And all the sudden you see hundreds of girls—grown up and young—crossing the street as fast as they can, and I’m like, There he is.” —Jon M. Chu, who is currently filming a documentary on Justin Bieber’s life [VF]

“It’s a beauty tip: Use fake teeth. They plumped up my upper lip, which makes you look younger. It’s like having collagen without having collagen because it makes the lip fuller. Always get false teeth.” —Helena Bonham Carter, who wore them to play Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows [MTV]
