"At the end of 'Anna,' I realized that for five years I have played people who have pretty much died. Even in the fucking comedy ['Seeking a Friend at the End of the World'], everyone dies."
Josh Lucas, "Hide Away"
"'The Firm' was a total extraordinary mistake from day one, honestly."
Eva Mendes, "Holy Motors"
"I'd look over and he'd [Demis Lavant] have one glass eye, and his monster-slash-leprechaun-slash-Nine-Inch-Nails-looks and I was just like, this is so cool."
Parker Posey, "Price Check"
"I'm trying to work in studio movies, but they won't hire me. I get feedback from my agent saying, 'She's too much of an indie queen.'"
Kathleen Turner, "The Perfect Family"
"We've got to wrap this up, kid."
Christopher Walken, "Seven Psycopaths" / "A Late Quartet"
"I have a friend who does me on his answering machine, and when I call him basically I'm talking to myself."
Joss Whedon, "The Avengers" / "Much Ado About Nothing"
On "The Avengers": "You know, it's not a perfect film, but it seems to have tapped into a need, and that's more exciting than making a perfect little jewel. It's just hitting somebody in the gut, in a nice way. Kissing them in the gut? No, that sounds awful."
Michael K. Williams, "Snow on tha Bluff"
"I'm not a politician, nor do I pretend to know a lot about the world of politics, but I supported President Obama. When he came out and acknowledged 'The Wire,' it didn't make me proud, like, 'Obama's talking about me,' it made me glad that he has his finger on the pulse of what's really going on in the community. He's not detached."
Rebel Wilson, "Bachelorette"
"I pick up the roles other actresses don’t want [laughs]. When there's movies where there are two sisters and one's the uglier sister, there's always no actress who wants to go for it. I’m like, 'Why not? They’re the best roles!'"
Rob Zombie, "Lords of Salem"
"No. That would just be masochistic on my part." [when asked if he would ever consider directing a third movie in the "Halloween" franchise]
