Happy Birthday: Amanda Seyfried

amandaseyfried.jpgAmanda Seyfried

Born: December 3, 1985 in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA

[on plans for the future] If I came out with a club hit, if I were singing duets with Jesse McCartney, I think people would get the wrong idea. I’m not interested in fashion design. I’m an actress, and that’s all I want to focus on. For me, that’s just more fulfilling.

[on Mamma Mia! (2008)] I had never seen the stage show. When I first heard about the audition, I was like, “Damn, I’m not Greek!”. I thought it was about this big Greek family.

Sex scenes are great. A lot of my co-stars have been sexy guys my age, and so, why not? I’m not going to pretend it’s not fun. Justin [Justin Timberlake] was great–he had come from doing Friends with Benefits (2011), where he basically had sex every day at work–and so it was easy for both of us. We just kind of got it on, and then were like, “That was good”.

I just love to act and be on the set. I want to make acting my life and get really good roles.

Happy Birthday: Gretchen Mol

gretchenmol.jpgGretchen Mol

Born: November 8, 1972 in Deep River, Connecticut, USA

Married to: Tod Williams (1 June 2004 – present) (2 children)

[about watching the black-and-white “loops” made in the 1940s and 1950s by Bettie Page in order to understand her character in The Notorious Bettie Page (2005)] I love the loops! I couldn’t take my eyes off of them. It was five minutes dedicated to the art of the shoe, and putting the shoe on–but first the stocking. It was so geisha. There was something so presentational. Bettie was just lost in her own world, dancing around with this fringe bikini on, with this weird lamp on the side table.

Happy Birthday: Doris Roberts (1925–2016)

dorisroberts.jpgDoris Roberts (1925–2016)

Born: November 4, 1925 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA
Died: April 17, 2016 (age 90) in Los Angeles, California, USA

Married to:
William Goyen (10 November 1963 – 30 August 1983) (his death)

By the time you’re 40, the kids are grown, out of the house or on their way out, and you have your whole life again.

Everybody’s a teacher if you listen.

Everything in life comes to an end. I’ve known loss. I’ve lost my husband, I’ve lost friends. When my husband died, I was devastated.

Best Quotes: Mark Ruffalo

markruffalo.jpgMark Ruffalo’s film “Now You See Me 2” is set to hit theaters tomorrow. For tribute, here’s the best quotes from the Ruffalo about acting, life, and art. 

“Usually, the first night before I start working on a picture, I can’t sleep. If it’s a particularly difficult scene, I have a hard time sleeping.”

“My belief about acting in one foot on a banana peel and the other one in the grave.”

“I think we’ve all been kind of… everyone’s been hurt, everyone’s felt loss, everyone has exultation, everyone has a need to be loved, or to have lost love, so when you play a character, you’re pulling out those little threads and turning them up a bit.”

“The one great thing about a continuing collaboration is that they know you. And if you’re really lucky, they really believe in you and think that your talent has some unending bounds to it.”

Certainly, it’s very easy to fall in love with cash. If you’re going to make all your decisions based on cash, you’re going to have a pretty naffy career.

I had to work on a Marlin boat, like gutting fish, like as the bait boy.

People say funny things all the time during really serious moments in life.

I like to think the movies that I’ve picked have something worthwhile to say. Something relevant.

It’s a difficult undertaking. I’ve been married for four years and I see this movie as a cautionary tale about people who’ve gone deeply out of communication.

I ran to my marriage, I was happily ready to take on marriage.

The problem to me is violence. It’s not cool to kill somebody or hurt people.

I don’t like this idea of Method. I come from that school, but what I was taught was that it’s your imagination. You do your homework, and you use your imagination.

I do readings at the public library. I just did a benefit scene night for my old acting teacher.

I think of marriage as a garden. You have to tend to it. Respect it, take care of it, feed it. Make sure everyone is getting the right amount of, um, sunlight.
