JENNIFER HUDSON
”Of course, I have an iPod at all times. I can’t do anything without music. I love my Destiny’s Child and my Beyoncé, and I’m not saying that ’cause I’m in [Dreamgirls] with her.”

JULIANNE MOORE
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. It’s wonderfully poetic. It’s about what it means to be alive. It’s a stirring and moving idea of what a soul is.”

NAOMIE HARRIS
The Sound of Music, which she watched, ”like, 13 times” as a kid. Her favorite von Trapp family tunes? ”’Sixteen Going On Seventeen’ and ‘So Long, Farewell.’ Don’t get me started, please.”

MATT DAMON
”We watch The Daily Show every night. Jon Stewart is just the funniest f—ing guy around.”

LISA KUDROW
”I’m listening to Eminem a lot because my son likes him. He’s only 8, but he responds to Eminem’s passion and wit, even at his age. Of course, as a parent, it also helps my conscience that when Eminem sings, ‘This s–t’s about to get heavy,’ he thinks he’s saying, ‘This ship’s about to get heavy.”’

RAINN WILSON
Big Cats by [my wife] Holiday Reinhorn. If I don’t say that, I could wake up with half of my leg cut off. I like that it’s dedicated to me. I like the cover. And I love the woman who wrote it. Oh, and the characters are great.”

ABIGAIL BRESLIN
Her iDog, ”a little robot thingie” that ”you plug your iPod into and it starts dancing. It moves its head, its ears, its paws — it’s so cool. I named mine Cha-Cha.”

CHARLES ARDAI
Match Point: ”After seeing what he could do in the thriller format, I sent Woody Allen a note asking if he wanted to write one for us. He hasn’t said ‘No’ yet…”

QUENTIN TARANTINO
”I’m excited about all of the horror movies that are coming out — the explosion of ultraviolent horror movies. The best movie I saw this year was the Hills Have Eyes remake. I’m not a huge Wes Craven fan and I always thought the first one was overrated anyway. The new one is really creepy and really good. It eats apples off the head of the original!”

DARREN ARONOFSKY
”I’m a huge fan [of Lost],” says the writer-director, who was slated to direct an episode last season before bowing out for personal reasons. ”I really, really wanted to do it, and hope I still can.”
