A look at who’s been saying what in interviews lately:
“There are maybe seven women who make up Caroline. But these ‘Did it really happen?’ questions really don’t interest me. That’s what everybody kept asking me when I did a Q&A at South by Southwest. I got off a couple of one-liners, like, ‘I’ve got a BA in dope but a PhD in soul.’ I’m good at those. Nowadays they call them sound bites.”
Lou Reed on the inspirations for the main character in “Berlin,” at the Independent.
“To me, it’s used up. It’s condescending now. The people that celebrate it are not from it. I feel that in some weird way they’re looking slightly down on it. I only celebrate something I can look up to.”
John Waters tells the AP his feelings on Honfest.
“It was sort of surreal. He is very professional and made me feel comfortable and it was pretty cool.”
Mary-Kate Olsen on making out with Ben Kingsley in “The Wackness,” at the Independent.
“They asked me if I would partake and I had to decline. Part of me would love to run around and act like a freaking a-hole again but I can’t do that. I’ve got two kids. I saw something on VH1 or something about me in the 90s and I thought, oh my God, how am I going to explain this to my kids? I have a few years to think about how to finesse it but I do think about it on a daily basis.”
Mark Wahlberg on why there’s no Funky Bunch reunion looming in the near future, at MTV.
“I don’t have a clue. But we’ll figure it out, because that’s what we do.”
The late Stan Winston on what he told Steven Spielberg when asked if he could build a 25-foot dinosaur for “Jurassic Park,” at CinemaTech.
