”I never related to being a sex symbol at 20…. I didn’t buy into the whole thing…. There’s nothing wrong with being considered a sexy woman. I want to keep my attractiveness as long as I can. It has to do with vitality and energy and interest. We all lose our looks eventually; better develop your character and interest in life.” — Dangerous Beauty‘s Jacqueline Bisset on Real Hollywood Online

”I’m shocked that [Dawson’s Creek] has been called controversial. The content is so mild compared with trashy talk shows that are on at 3 in the afternoon, and we deal so much more intelligently and responsibly with these issues than anyone on those shows ever does. I think our show is honest, and I’m not ashamed of anything that happens on it.” — Dawson’s Creek‘s James Van Der Beek on E! Online

”No, no, no, no, no, no, [I am not related to Mel].” — Dharma & Greg‘s Thomas Gibson on America Online

”I’m against all censorship, especially in the field of sexuality…. We are sexual beings, and the more we know about sexuality, ours as well as that of people who may have so-called weird components, it’s important because it’s part of our lives. It’s very worrisome, this kind of intolerance setting in. That’s really what’s behind it, intolerance. It’s not to protect anybody.” — Palmetto director Volker Schlondorff on RoughCut Online

”I would say I’m pretty successful. I’m healthy and happy, and so are my wife and child. Success is a difficult word to define. If you look at it metaphysically, I’m very successful. If you look at it in terms of Hollywood Bank Account, then I’m not…. But I guess it just takes that one big break…to bring you out again.” — Falling Fire‘s Michael Pare on AOL
