"Times have changed and that is also what is amazing is that we do have so many options these days, as opposed to our parents' days when you can't have children because you have waited too long."

She lives with her nanny, and Grandma Wendy and Kim - Kurt's mother and sister - live two doors down, but there's no drug testing going on. It's a lot of money for a normal person. It's enough money to kill her, if she is doing drugs, enough money to be gone by the time she's 22." — Courtney Love on her daughter Frances. [This Is London]
  • "Asian actors tend not to be sent Hollywood scripts that are substantial or challenging. I'm likely to be offered the roles of a terrorist, cab driver and smart geek.

You have to remember that before Slumdog, the last film about India that went big at the Oscars was Gandhi, as played by Ben Kingsley. The fact that me and [actress girlfriend] Freida [Pinto] have any kind of platform in Hollywood is a big step forward." — Dev Patel. [Contact Music]
