“I’m interested in finding people who I think have a voice—and a very specific voice. It’s hard to be surprised by a film. It’s hard to be surprised by another actor or by a director when you’ve seen enough and been around. So when I am, or when I forget that I’m watching someone’s movie, or when I don’t know how someone made a certain turn that I didn’t expect … You know, I’m in.”
But ultimately it was Jessica who had to get up and perform a song and dance in front of the entire cast of Mad Men, who I’m just beginning to get to know.

“Fuck it” is my guiding philosophy.
With malice toward all. Maurice Sendak’s feelings on:
Ebooks: “I hate them. It’s like making believe there’s another kind of sex. There isn’t another kind of sex. There isn’t another kind of book! A book is a book is a book.”
New York: “You get pushed and harassed and people grope you. It’s too tumultuous, it’s too crazy!”
The American right: “These Republican schnooks would be comical if they weren’t not funny.”
Rupert Murdoch: “His name should be what everything is called now.” But he publishes you! “Yes! Harpers. He owns Harpers and I guess the rest of the world, too. He represents how bad things have become. But I don’t know a better house. They’re all in trouble. They’re all terrible.”
Salman Rushdie, who once gave him a terrible review in the New York Times: “That flaccid fuckhead. He was detestable. I called up the Ayatollah, nobody knows that.”
Roald Dahl: “The cruelty in his books is off-putting. Scary guy. I know he’s very popular but what’s nice about this guy? He’s dead, that’s what’s nice about him.”
Stephen King: “Bullshit.”
Gwyneth Paltrow: “I can’t stand her.”
