“Acting with Adams was also really fun. Amy is the most unselfconscious actress I’ve come across in a while. She’s not afraid to make a fool out of herself. She is spookily talented.” – Emily Blunt.
I was immediately impressed at how much fun she was having while looking absolutely fabulous in her couture gowns. I don’t manage to do either of those things with much grace and was chastened into looking for a way to try and enjoy the ride.” – Frances McDormand.
Amy has a little light on inside her that burns — sometimes a soft light, sometimes a hot little blue flame, but you are aware always of the light. It is her immediacy as an actress, that present quality that makes her special.” – Meryl Streep.
[For about five minutes, he spoke of his admiration for Adams’s talent, generosity and work ethic. He spoke of how he believed people often misunderstood Amy. How in reality she was harder to pin down than she might seem. How she purposely kept a little mystery about herself.] “And for an actor that’s good,” he said. “More should do it.” – Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Happy 40th Birthday, Amy! (Born August 20, 1974)

“What I didn’t realize, back when I was this twenty-five-year-old pinup for geeks in that me myself and iconic metal bikini, was that I had signed an invisible contract to stay looking the exact same way for the next thirty to forty years. Well, clearly I’ve broken that contract. Partly because, in an effort to keep up my disguise as a human being, I had a child at some point. And then, in an effort to stay sane for said child, I took pounds and pounds of medications that have the dual effect of causing water retention (think ocean, not lake) while also creating a craving for salad—chocolate salad. So yes, in answer to your unexpressed question, sanity does turn out to come at a heavy price.”

Hi, I’m Chris Pratt. I’ve been challenged by Bob Iger and Vincent D’Onofrio to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Gentlemen, I accept your challenge. Uh, now, that’s twice I’ve been challenged, so I’m gonna do it slightly different. Instead of doing one bucket of ice, what I’m going to do… I found this, it’s called Blue Ice Vodka and in lieu of the bucket of ice, I’ll be drinking this. (x)
