I just want to put an end to this right now and just say one thing to everyone out there making this performance such a big deal. GET OVER IT! NOTHING HAPPENED. THERE ARE WAYYYYYYY MORE IMPORTANT THINGS IN THE WORLD." [USWeekly]

  • "The character grew up with the privilege and the money, but his father is running the family's bankrupt business, and his mom was stricken with cancer and battled that and died. So he's almost forced to sell marijuana, and he doesn't even know what he's doing. He's in over his head. It's good for me because it's a heroic figure, but it's a pretty tragic, dark, melodramatic movie. There are a lot of really comedic parts in it, and it almost goes over the top to make fun of the Gossip Girl crowd. [The film] is so campy and funny, it's silly, and then when it's contrasted with the dark reality of one of the girl characters spiraling emotionally into this tailspin, it's very tragic. It was a lot of fun-very liberating. It's kind of a Less Than Zero for our generation."-Chace Crawford, on his role as a drug dealer in the upcoming film, Twelve [JustJared]

  • When you live full-time in California, as I've done for the past few years, you often feel people spend so much time trying to save their lives that they don't live them. I mean, at the end of the day, we're all going to die. So what's the point of always worrying about your health? For me, the decision to change my life wasn't really about my health. It was about the fact that I wasn't having fun any more. As I used to say, I'd put the "wreck" into recreation. I was on clonazepam, zolpidem, temazepam, chloral hydrate, alcohol, Percocet, codeine - and that was just for starters. But morphine was my favourite. I didn't do it for very long, mind you, because Sharon would find me passed out on the floor with the dog licking my forehead, and she put a stop to it. And thank God she did: I'd have kicked the bucket a long time ago otherwise."-Ozzy Osbourne [TimesOnline]
