Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio Interview :

I: "Are you an outdoorsy, get-up-at-5am-for-a-hike kind of guy? "

LD: ‘I wouldn’t say 5am, but I’m definitely outdoorsy. I love being immersed in nature, going to places in the world that are pristine and untouched by man. It’s almost a religious experience when you go to a place like the Amazon and there’s no civilisation for thousands of miles.’


Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise

“I remember being so nervous and seeing Tom Cruise drive up in a Porsche, I think it was. He got out of the car and walked through and I was like, ‘Ah.’ My jaw dropped. Then I had to go in and audition in front of Tony Scott. Sweet Tony. [Producers] Don Simpson, Jerry Bruckheimer, Robert Towne and Tom. I was like, ‘No way, I’m not going to get this.’ They called that afternoon and I had the job.”- Nicole Kidman talking about Tom Cruise


Beyoncé Interview March 2004:"

"I don't want to get addicted to fame," she says. "Then when I'm no longer famous I won't know what to do, and I'll just seem desperate and lose my mind." She has been training to be famous since age ten, when her father would make her run one mile in the morning while singing, to build up the ability to sing and dance at the same time. The first Destiny's Child album came out when she was sixteen, in 1998, a year before Britney Spears and the teen-pop supernova (she and Spears are the same age); Beyoncé has worked relentlessly since. "You lose touch with who you are," she says. "When you work so much like we did, it's just too much." "

Robert De Niro

Robert De Niro Facts:

1. Growing up in the Little Italy section of New York City, his nickname was "Bobby Milk" because he was so thin and as pale as milk.

2. Son of painter Virginia Admiral and abstract expressionist Robert De Niro Sr.. Despite being raised Presbyterian, Virginia was an atheist for most of Robert's childhood. Robert Sr. was raised Catholic but was not religious in any way. After De Niro was born, his father Robert Sr. came out as a homosexual and eventually divorced Robert's mother.

3. Although he is sometimes referred to as an Italian-American actor, De Niro is actually one quarter Italian in ancestry. His father was of half Italian and half Irish descent. His mother was of Dutch, English, German, French and Irish ancestry on her own father's side, and of German ancestry on her own mother's side. Robert was quite close to his Italian paternal grandfather, whom he visited frequently in Syracuse, New York when he was young. De Niro has stated that he identifies "more with [his] Italian side". He was inducted into the Italian-American Hall of Fame (2002).

4. He is the second actor to receive an Academy Award for portraying Vito Corleone. He and Marlon Brando are the only two actors to receive an Academy Award for playing the same character.

5. He first discovered his love for acting at age 10 when he portrayed the Cowardly Lion in a local production of "The Wizard of Oz". He dropped out of high school to join a gang.

6. His boyhood idols among actors included Montgomery Clift, Robert Mitchum and Marlon Brando. He preferred the darker, more character-driven work of these men to the older stars of Hollywood, for whom their public persona as a star was more important than their immersion into the character.

7. Limousine drivers in Los Angeles joke about his less than generous tips by referring to him as "No Dinero".

8. Has said that Meryl Streep is his favorite actress to work with.

Fast and Furious cast

Fast and Furious cast on Paul Walker

1. “I could see Paul once every two years and just know there was another human on the planet who’s deep like me, who loves like that. When that disappears, you wonder, ‘Wait a minute, what do I hold on to?’ There was nothing to tether me to this existence: ‘Why am I f—ing here? And, like, why’d you leave without me?’ ” - Michelle Rodriguez

2. “The day after the tragedy, for me to fly from Atlanta that night and to show up at his mother’s house and for me to say to his mother, ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry,’ and for his mother to say to me ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry’ — I said, ‘Why? Why are you saying sorry to me?’ And she said, ‘Because you lost your other half…She was telling me something I wasn’t even aware of. I wasn’t aware of how profound the loss was. You don’t think about it while you’re living, and we’re probably all a little guilty of not telling people how much we love them while they’re here. “ - Vin Diesel

3. “I so badly wanted to say I can’t express what he meant to me or what the impact of him being gone has had on my life in one quote, because I loved Paul so much, What Paul had was the gift of being really present to everyone around him. It’s something i’ve worked really hard on. I think all of us try so hard, and it’s difficult to have that innately. It’s one of the best qualities you can have in a friend. He didn’t want the drama. He didn’t get wrapped up in the stuff that so many people in the industry do. So I was just blessed to know him at all. “ - Jordana Brewster



Mila Kunis

"My parents went through hell and back. They came to America with suitcases and a family of seven and $250, and that’s it. My parents, for years, worked full-time and went to college full-time. They would go to night school to learn English. My mom started working at Thrifty in Culver City as a box lady. That’s what she did until she learned English; then she became a cashier. My dad worked—f--k if I know—seven jobs? He painted a house. He would deliver toilets. He drove a cab, delivered pizzas. Whatever he could do, he did. Ultimately, my dad owned cabs, and my mom worked her way up to manager of a Rite-Aid; they bought a car and a condo. But growing up poor, I never missed out on anything. My parents did a beautiful job of not making me feel like I was lesser than any other kids." - Mila Kunis


Johnny Depp

Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere

Cindy Crawford talking about Richard Gere: "I think a lot of what happened with Richard and I was that I was still 22 and at 22 - as a young woman - I was kind of still figuring out who I was and what I wanted to be and he was already 37. So in some ways, he knew that I was still growing and changing. I just didn't want to hear it from him because at 22 you think you know everything. You think you're already formed. And then you realise, 10 years later, that they were totally right.".



Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt interview (1999):

“…Recently, Pitt says, he's been having comedy dreams. Sometimes he laughs in his sleep. Pitt tells me that he is happy. And then, almost as soon as he has told me this, he begins to worry about it. (It doesn't take much to get him worried.) His imagination begins rolling away with itself, scaring him as it goes. "I just saw a dreadful title," he says. "'Brad Pitt Talks About His Happiness.' Listen, man, it's all up and down. It's all up and down." I nod vaguely, wondering why he's saying this, but then he says something strange and interesting. "You're talking to a guy," Pitt begins, "who's always had this kind of congenital sadness. I don't know where it came from. I don't know what it is - the state of the world, the state of yourself. I don't know. I had a very easy childhood, deprived of nothing per se, so you know..." - and, not knowing, I wait, and he shrugs - "... I mean, turn on the news, man."

I: “So you're less sad now? “

Pitt: “I’ve got reins on it. Awww, man, listen. I see it in so many people. I just always had so many questions growing up: why this, why the state of the world, why does God want this? Congenital sadness. It always came up, for no reason. I don't know what it is. “

I: “And you've had the same as an adult? “

Pitt: “I always had periods. I always had times. “

I: “Obviously people who read about you from a distance... “

Pitt: “[Nods] "You've got it made." Listen, I also live the life of a rock star. “

I: “The only bad thing they think they know is that you might have had a couple of love affairs which didn't work out. “

Pitt: “I know. [Exasperated] Christ. I wish they'd leave it alone. Everybody's got 'em. “

I: “But they can't think of anything else bad that's happened to you. “

Pitt: “Yeah. It's a mystery to me, too. It's an enigma. “


Jennifer Aniston

I:"Scandal "

JA:"Scandal! [Pause] Unfortunately. [Pause] I didn't want to admit that. I didn't go to concerts much. I get freaked out in crowds. I caught the drumstick at that one. But, yeah, I have this weird thing about crowds, waiting on line. I have this thing where I think I'm going to get murdered or something. I start getting almost anxiety attacks. "

I:"So no mosh pit? "

JA:"No! I'm a wimp. "

I:"Did you go through a rebellious period? "

JA:"My version of a rebellious period, yeah. "
