Robert Downey Jr.: "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man [by John Perkins] and Under the Black Flag [by David Cordingly]—it's about pirates. And I've got a dictionary."
Fantasia Barrino: "Let me be honest—I hate reading! But I have [learned how]. A friend gave me Billie Holiday's Lady Sings the Blues, and I kid you not, I want to read it. She's an idol, and it's a page-turner. Thank God I'm reading!"
Ryan Seacrest: "This may be boring to you, but I'm reading Judgment of Paris—it's about the history of wine tasting. I love wine. I'm building a wine cellar in my new house."
Toni Collette: "I just read Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, and it was one of the most amazing autobiographies I've ever read. It's beautiful."
