Celeb Quotes of the Day: Keith Urban, Tyler Perry
"There’s darkness in the world and at some point you want to keep your kids from that because you want [them] to enjoy childhood and imagination and see the world in a beautiful way, but at some point learning how to navigate that is crucial for not letting the darkness tell you how to live. And that’s what we’re all in the midst of right now: How do we not let that kind of darkness change our living so much that it’s taken all the color out of it?” he asks. “How do we keep color in our life, and how do we keep it intimate and open and vulnerable? It’s love. It’s what we’re dealing with. How do you love vulnerably, but protect yourself? It’s a real balance.”

"Perhaps the most critical solution lies in partnership with the men. The harassers must stop; we know this. But male titans of industry must stand up for decency. Shout it from the rooftops and whisper it in the bars when women aren’t around, because we don’t often get invited to the late-night drinks where those conversations happen. Those are the moments. Women alone cannot change the culture. We need men. Evolved ones. Kind ones. Brave and scared ones, like those who fear expulsion from the fraternity if they object to a male colleague’s bad behavior."

— Peter Facinelli, on his relationship with Jennie Garth post-split, to LaPalme magazine

I look back to the ‘70s and ‘80s and of course we always want to see a beautiful body, but there’s something about showing the sexuality of someone who lives their life, somebody who knows how to eat a sandwich, who occasionally lets this kind of demon out of them — I want more of that. Those are the people I find sexy. I want to bring love handles and eating sandwiches back.”
— David Harbour, on his idea of sexy, to Women's Health
"It’s a lot of time. It’s a lot of rehearsals every day and then it’s all the packages and the interviews and the things you have to shoot outside of rehearsal. So to have both parents fully engaged in this whole thing, it’s been tough. My son said to me the other day, he’s like, ‘Daddy, I don’t want you to dance anymore.

"I’ve always been an optimist. But the cancer metastasized. It kept spreading and coming back. I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, and then it would. And then I’d wait for another shoe to drop, and it would. I was frustrated and enraged. I couldn’t control any of this. I couldn’t fix it.”
— Mindy Cohn, on her battle with breast cancer, to PEOPLE

You need one of these.’ I was like, ‘Oh cool.’ The last bag that I bought myself was a Madden Girl backpack that’s really cute. And it was on sale for $45!

If Pierce could do it, I think I could do Mamma Mia! too. I want to prove I’m a real actor. I’m not [just] an action star.
