I'd rather be in Malibu."--Anthony Hopkins "Feminists don't like me, and I don't like them."--Mel Gibson "I hope to God my friends steal my body out of a morgue and throw a party when I'm dead."--Drew Barrymore "I want you out of here. And I want those goddamn tapes!"--Bob Knight "I smoked pot with my father when I was eleven in 1973. ...
