Quotable: Tom Cruise Was Broke When He Got His Big Break

“The audition [for 'Taps'] was in New York. I said one line. That was it. I had long hair at the time, so they said, ‘Hold up your hair.’ Then ‘Thank you.’ I don’t know why, but… I thought I’d get it. It wasn’t arrogance. I had a quarter in my pocket — and that was it. I’m telling you: I didn’t have bus fare to get back to where my mom was living in Jersey. I remember… standing outside the Holland Tunnel, and hitchhiking.”

— Tom Cruise tells Esquire about his big break. I don’t know about you guys, but whenever I read accounts like these — and celebrities all seem to have a similar story — I always think the key to success (or maybe just fame?) is being broke.

Quotable: Russell Brand Shares Deep Thoughts On Vanity And Masturbation With Rolling Stone

“People think I’m vain because I look in mirrors so much, but I’m not looking in mirrors, thinking, ‘Look at you, you hunk.’ I’m just checking to see if I’m still there”

Russell Brand in a very revealing — in so many ways — interview with Rolling Stone. He also told the magazine this interesting bit of philosophy:

…If you ejaculate onto yourself, there’s that beautiful, transcendent, orgasmic moment of relief, then you walk to the bathroom, clean up and you catch yourself in the mirror and it’s like, ‘I don’t know what you’re looking at! Kings have done that!’”

Okay then! If I’m being honest, I love this dude and seriously cannot wait for “Get Me to the Greek” to hit theaters. Looks hilarious. [Rolling Stone via Page Six] Keep reading »

Quotable: Joan Rivers Hopes Jesse James Bounces Back From The Insanity

Jesse should have been in therapy years ago. I’m so sad because he’s such a sweet guy. And when he starts telling you about what he came out of with his background you put two and two together. So you just hope, please God, get into therapy, which he is and try and pull your life together. [When I first met him] I thought he was adorable, ADORABLE. Jesse was a darling and a gentleman. He was the one who carried your bag, he was the one who helped you up the stairs. Sweet, nice … this whole thing is just insane.”
