Jennifer Lopez Not Quite Sure What ‘Superstar’ Means

“We are confident that we have, I would say, fifteen to twenty real superstars, I think. Really, really good people. … That’s a big word to use, but definitely people with a lot of talent who could be recording artists for sure.” —Jennifer Lopez, lowering expectations for the upcoming season of American Idol [MTV]

“I’m constantly suppressing a very wide smile. It’s a great script, great director, and the money ain’t bad.” —Rhys Ifans, on being in the new Spider-Man film [Splash Page/MTV]

“There’s even a punk-rock attitude to The Hangover, I think. We start the movie with a Glenn Danzig song. I defy you to find me a Judd Apatow production that starts with a Glenn Danzig song. ” —Todd Phillips, on shocking audiences [AV Club/Onion]

“I’m not trying to be a badass, but in general I can take a lot of gore and I can watch pretty gruesome things without being affected too much. For some reason in this movie, you go through this whole journey with this one guy stuck in this hole, and by the time he’s cutting his arm off, you feel like you’re cutting your own damn arm off. My whole body started to get hot, and you start losing your breath a little.” —Dave Franco, on watching his brother James cut his arm off in 127 Hours[Blackbook]

“Americans in general are very surprised. I’m amazed that they forever think I’m putting on this accent now, that I’m preparing for a role right now, with this voice. It’s a huge compliment, but at some point when they still leave the conversation with me thinking, ‘Oh, he’s got to be putting it on, we know he’s from the South.’ It’s funny.” —Ryan Kwanten, on reaction to his real Australian accent [LAT]
