People selected its usual “10 Best Celeb Quotes this Week”. Here are the ones we loved and — of course, more fun — the ones we downright hated.
“’Your Highness’? That movie sucks. You can’t get around that.” — James Franco to GQ on his 2011 stoner comedy “Your Highness”. Brutally honest and hilarious — just what we want out of Mr. Franco. A+.
“I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.” — Angelina Jolie in a “New York Times” op-ed piece on her decision to get a double mastectomy to avoid cancer. We all love Angie for being a sexy beast and amazing humanitarian — now we love her even more for prioritizing her health and choosing what’s best for her family. Ugh, we just adore you, Ang.
“It can absolutely feel like one big popularity contest, and you know what? I can’t be bothered.” — Nicki Minaj to “Teen Vogue”, comparing the music business to high school. Love her or hate her, you can’t dispute her originality and personal war on convention. Stay you, Ms. Minaj.
“I only have to work for Lorne for five more years before I pay him back for the time I totaled his car.” — Seth Meyers, in a released statement, on teaming up with SNL executive Lorne Michaels when he replaces Jimmy Fallon in 2014. Seth is incredible, and Lorne Michaels is a comedic genius, but this is a sad reminder about how white, heterosexual males will continue dominating late night talk. Can’t we liven things up with a vagina (Kathy Griffin?), a gay guy (Ross Mathews?), or a fabulous comedian of color (Kenan Thompson?)?! No? Boo!
“She looks like a butterfly through the summer sky.” — Max Greenfield to “Vulture” on meeting and working with Taylor Swift on “New Girl”. Taylor Swift is juvenile, mellow dramatic and, like, ridiculously Caucasian — a butterfly though the summer sky? Not so much. #fail
“I’m not going anywhere… I can get anything and everything that I want at his house, so I think I’m going to be there for 20, 30 more years.” — Jaden Smith to Ellen DeGeneres on why it’ll be a while before he moves out from father Will Smith’s house. I mean, we know he’s just kidding around, but it’s still obnoxious being reminded how
spoiled rotten fortunate Hollywood offspring are. Two thumbs down.
