”The only way anyone is going to recognize me from X-Men is maybe if I’m walking along the street with a visor across my face. You never really see my eyes in the movie, so fans will have to recognize me by my cheekbones.”
X-Men‘s James Marsden on playing Cyclops, on Entertainment Weekly Online

”Everything in Africa has teeth, everything. I would wake up in the middle of the night sweating over this. Then once I got there, to know that a puff adder, the fastest-striking, slowest-moving [and deadliest] snake in Africa [might be] curled up on the porch… Seeing them is as natural as seeing a poodle in Central Park… I had to, on a daily basis, take a deep breath and say, ‘I’m handing it to you, God.”’
I Dream of Africa‘s Kim Basinger on living in Kenya for six months during the film’s shoot, on Mr. Showbiz
