2013: The Year In Quotes

2013, we’re not quite done with you yet. To close off our coverage of the year gone by, we wanted to hand over the mic to the actors, directors and other film professionals who made waves, headlines, faux pas, announcements, pronouncements or funny gags throughout the year. And we’re changing up the format this time out, scouring the whole internet and not just our own archives for these little nuggets, mainly because we’re fairly sure you’ve all avidly consumed, and committed to memory every word of each of the 200-odd interviews we ran in 2013, and we’d be preaching to the choir.

Frances Ha

May

“This secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It's sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don't have the ability to perceive them. That's...that's what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess.”
Frances (Greta Gerwig) in Noah Baumbach’s “Frances Ha.”

“I’ve taken great glee in showing pictures that I have on my iPhone of Dr. Startz to people. People, honestly, fall over… He reminded me of a certain genus and species of guy that you would see at Laker games during the Magic Johnson era. He looks almost like a transgendered Bee Gee.”
Rob Lowe telling EW about his “Behind the Candelabra” transformation.

"Cary Grant and Burt Reynolds."
Noted feminist Jerry Lewis in Cannes, when asked who his favorite female comedians are, before clarifying further “I don’t have any.”

“My suggestion for host is Joaquin Phoenix
Seth MacFarlane tweeting about not hosting the 2014 Oscars.

Angelina Jolie

“I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.”
Angelina Jolie writes of her decision to undergo a double mastectomy in the New York Times.

“If the casting had been even 3% wrong, it wouldn’t have worked in the same way. All of us felt we needed to invite all three artists to the stage together.”
Cannes jury president Steven Spielberg explaining the unprecedented decision to award three Palme d’Ors (Palmes d’Or?) to the director and leads of “Blue is the Warmest Color

"It appears to me that this was what was missing on the set: lesbians"
Julie Maroh, author of the "Blue is the Warmest Color" graphic novel on her blog.

“It’s less scary to me than if he wanted to be a dentist in that I couldn’t help with what he’d chosen. I have relationships with some of the biggest filmmakers and actors and producers on Earth. So I can be a huge help.”
Will Smith talking to New York Magazine about his son Jaden’s bid for acting stardom, prior to their appearance together in flop “After Earth.”

We’ll give it a break with the emblematic Jennifer Lawrence quotes for this month and instead, here’s a link to a gif of her photobombing Sarah Jessica Parker at the Met Ball.

Channing Tatum, White House Down

June

“Uh-uh, this is not happening right now. We’ve had this conversation. My boss does not like squirrels. It’s a bird feeder. Can you at least look at me when I’m talking to you?”
John Cale (Channing Tatum) to the squirrel (uncredited) in “White House Down.”

“I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence. My apologies to e" "I meant to say my apologies to others involve with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart.”
Jim Carrey distances himself from “Kick-Ass 2” via Twitter.

World War Z, Brad Pitt, Marc Forster

“I would read that Brad Pitt and I had no communication, and we would look at each other and say, where could this come from? Is somebody just making up these stories?... Sure, we felt like the media wanted the project to fail, but we knew what we had, and we felt it would work. Then came the first preview, and the movie played like gangbusters.”
Marc Forster talks about the “exaggerated” stories of “World War Z” ’s troubled production to Deadline.

“My heart goes out to his family. As those of us in his pretend one hold on to the memories of our intense and beautiful time together. The love between Tony and Carmela was one of the greatest I've ever known.”
Edie Falco reacting to news of James Gandolfini’s death, referencing his most famous famous role.

“Without wanting to get too specific, this particular cancer is caused by HPV which actually comes about from cunnilingus.”
Actually, Michael Douglas, that’s pretty specific. From an interview with the Telegraph.

Jennifer Lawrence seemingly didn’t utter a word or fall over anything all month. Adorable!
