  • ”I got a computer and I’m learning how to use it. I collect antique books, so I used it to get my copy of ‘Les Liaisons Dangereuses,’ and I use it for travel, to look up customs. I went to Fiji, and I looked up all this stuff before I went, like ‘Don’t wear a hat in someone’s house because it’s rude, and don’t wear shoes.’ You’ve got to think there’s something better I can do with my time than log on to the Internet and say, ‘Ooo, let’s find out about me!’ I think that would frighten me a little bit. SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR on whether she goes online to read about herself
  • ”My man is on the run — he’s got no time for boning. He’s got no time for none of that. It’s like yo, my man has to save his own self. It would be stupid if they ended up in the sack in a motel.” ”The Art of War” star WESLEY SNIPES explaining why his character, a spy falsely accused of murder, can’t cuddle up with costar Marie Matiko
  • ”It was on my résumé that I know how to do martial arts, so you sort of assume the filmmakers know that. But two thirds of the way through the movie I was talking about it to the stunt coordinator and he said, ‘If I had known you did martial arts, I would have incorporated it!’ From that point on I got to do some of my own stunts, but I never did get to kick ass. I just watched in envy, thinking, ‘I could do that. I could do it better!”’ ”The Art of War”’s MARIE MATIKO on the drawbacks of playing the damsel in distress
  • ”In England, before you get into the stadium you’re touched and searched and frisked. There’s a moat around the field, there’s missiles flying around, police everywhere. But here, they bring you beer. I was emotional when that happened. So when somebody threw a bag of nuts at me, I thought, ‘This is familiar.’ Then I was told, ‘They’re for you.’ It was like a night at the opera.” — ”The Replacements” punter RHYS IFANS on the differences between American and English football games
  • ”In this business you can get to thinking in the dark hours that, ‘F— maybe this is all I can do. I guess I’ll just play the nice, slightly dumb guy again in a romantic comedy.’ [But actually] I don’t feel like I’m a one trick pony. I feel like I can be a real prick.” — LUKE WILSON, who costars in ”Charlie’s Angels” this November, on breaking free of his nice guy image
