  • "I think that the best way to judge movies is, like, 10 years after they're released. I think they should actually do the awards that way.

  • "Before we were married, my wife and I used to play a game called Let's Go Get Lost. We'd be driving, and she would just tell me to turn. 'Turn here, turn here, turn here.'

  • "I'm kind of frightened of the red carpet. I really am. And, you know, it gets worse.

You have people checking out your dress from the minute you step onto the carpet and then, you know, it's a hit or miss. That can be more frightening than the premiere." — Julia Roberts. [CBS News]
  • "I'm currently in the writing process. I'm learning how to play music and write song, but they're comedy songs.

Two of the people I'm collaborating with will be performing with me at SXSW - Patty Griffin and Amanda Palmer [of the Dresden Dolls]. [The songs] are all pretty dirty. The titles are things like, 'I'm In Love With Someone Else So Fuck You' and 'Eat Shit and Die.'" — Margaret Cho, who is performing at SXSW… as a musician. [Time]
