• "I think he rendered me infertile."
The Island's Ewan McGregor, on director Michael Bay's motorcycle-chase sequences, to Entertainment Weekly

• "He was not an ingredient or inspiration for the part at all. (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory author Roald) Dahl wrote this character in 1964, when Michael Jackson was a wee lad. I don't think he was inspired by him either."
Johnny Depp, on assumptions that his Willy Wonka portrayal was inspired by the pop star

• "A fake name is very attractive."
J.K. Rowling, telling 14-year-old interviewer Owen Jones about how she can take the pressure off writing her first non-Harry Potter book

– Emmy-nominated Desperate Housewives actress Marcia Cross, on her snubbed costars, Nicollette Sheridan and Eva Longoria

• "I made a $35 million movie. That's the doughnut budget for Mission: Impossible.
