In Hoboken, when I was a kid, I lived in a plenty tough neighborhood. When somebody called me a "dirty little pig," there was only one thing to do: break his head. When I got older, I realized you shouldn`t do it (get even) that way. I realized you`ve got to do it through education . . . maybe with a few exceptions.- Frank Sinatra

If I were 22 and trying to build a career, I don`t know who`d be watching the kids as happily as I do. It takes so much to get me to break out of domestic paradise. There`s hardly anything that interests me as much as my family.- Susan Sarandon

If we had loads of money as a family, things would be different and they`d come to visit more and I`d get to spend more time here. But I`m laying down roots in America so when I`m there, just being at home, it`s harder to break away from that.- Rick Allen

(Talking about his relationship with Sheryl Crow and his relationships with women in general): "Going out with someone who`s doing the same thing as you, who`s in the public eye, can be a problem... You want a break when you come home. You don`t want someone with the same issues as you maybe reminding you of stuff you don`t like in yourself. That being said, I don`t think being in the spotlight had anything to do with me and Sheryl not working out. The story of our relationship is the same story I`ve had with most of my relationships. I was lucky enough to find a great girl and, because of my lack of... focus, the relationship went south".- Owen Wilson

I got really lucky in that my dad stopped working just as I started. He took a few years off, not on purpose, but he has three sons with his wife of 30 years and he wanted to be involved with them. As much as I missed him being around when I was growing up, I think he missed us too and he wasn`t going to let that happen again. So it wasn`t until much later that people started making comparisons. When I started, with films like The Bay Boy and Stand by Me, I look back on those interviews and I`m amazed; there`s no mention of my father, it`s not even "son of Donald Sutherland". I caught a bit of a break in that it never felt like a weight to me. It`s amazing that I was stupid enough to try it - we`re talking about one of the most prolific actors in film history - but my parents were very gracious about making me feel like I at least had a shot at making my own path.- Kiefer Sutherland

I love the contrast between the two stories because every element of them is completely opposite to the other. So when Kate is with her husband in the flashbacks, she wants it so badly, and yet she knows she can`t have it. And yet with Sawyer, she so desperately doesn`t want to go there, and doesn`twant that thing to happen, but she can`t seem to stop it from happening, because there`s this momentum and this chemistry between them that she can`t really help. And, you know, where she`s relatively free in the flashbacks to make it happen, she`s not in a cage, and she`s not being forced to do labor every day, it`s actually more difficult for her to stay in that house, and you know, cook breakfast, and be a little housewife, than it is for her to break rocks and work in a quarry and sleep in a cage. And there`s all these contrasts that happened that I just love, because I think the island represents who she truly is in her heart and the flashback represents who she wishes she was.- Evangeline Lilly

I`ve had my heart broken, and it`s not fun. But I`d rather have my heart broken than break someone else`s heart.- Josh Hartnett

(on working with Alejandro Amenábar again) I wish I could work with him again. He`s so secret. He doesn`t even tell me and I go, "Give me a break, man. Give me a role." He works secretly. I guess he will be shooting soon. I hope so, because he`s amazing.- Javier Bardem

We actors always say how difficult and physically demanding a role was. But give me a break, it`s only a movie.- Javier Bardem

On "Foster Child", her brother Buddy Foster`s unauthorized biography about her: "A cheap cry for attention and money filled with hazy recollections, fantasies and borrowed press releases. Buddy has done nothing but break our mother`s heart his whole life."- Jodie Foster

I want to play places that are uncharted rock & roll territory. Much as I love America, a lot of America we never played in - we`ve never played Wichita. But I`d like to go to Asia, I`d like to go to India, I`d like to play the Middle East. I`d like to play more in Eastern Europe. All those places, there is zero money, you know, but you are hoping to break even. Which is a concept most people who run rock & roll tours can`t grasp, because what`s the point of spending a year touring and earning no money when you could be back in America, earning money. But that`s what I would like to do.- Mick Jagger

Rock and roll is a spent force in that we can`t expect any more from it, either as music or an instrument for social change. It is merely recycling itself and everything is a rehash of something else. I`m not that good a musician to break out of it - it`s all I can do.- Mick Jagger

OK, that was a very big break, the `60s thing. But it was winding up from the days of Elvis. The Elvis period was super-rebellious. Because that kind of music was much more shocking than the music of the Beatles - the early Beatles... The sexuality of the early Elvis years was much more shocking to a straight audience than the Beatles` I Want to Hold Your Hand... The wild men - Elvis, Jerry Lee - they were much more scary. So when we`re talking about any `60s break, you have to take that into account. They`d already made this sexual charge.- Mick Jagger

"I was at NYU`s Tisch School of the Arts for a year and I loved it. There are a lot of really creative people, there is a constant exchange of an ideas. We talk about what`s been done (in film) and all the rules for filmmaking and then we talk about how to break them."- Alexis Bledel

I`ve been working on a lot of independent films. I`ve been working on a lot of bigger films that have fallen through and nothing happened. I worked on a lot of things that ended up falling through; not my fault. I`m in the middle of filming a movie called `Spring Break `83.` We filmed half of it in Louisiana and we`re now on a hiatus. We`ll finish filming it in Los Angeles at a time to be decided.- Ricky Ullman

Movie sex scenes are never romantic, and you`re never swept off your feet. It`s always very technical....I`m counting the beats: Okay, we`re supposed to kiss for two beats, then I say my line, then they want another kiss for four beats. I`m going, One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three and break. It`s like choreography. Sometimes you have actors who feel it`s their job to get as far down into your throat as possible. You`re like, Excuse me, I like you, but not that much.- Sandra Bullock

I`m just nervous and anxious all the time - I drink too much coffee. But you know, everything can be solved with a bottle; the bottle is a universal cure-all - and not just a booze bottle, any bottle. You break up with your boyfriend, you get a bottle of peroxide. You get sad, you have a drink. Need to sleep? Get a bottle of pills. Baby needs to be calmed down? Give it a bottle. There are genies in bottles.- Gina Gershon

(2004 Quote on drinking) "I made a conscious decision to break away from big films when I got alcohol out of my life. I had been sucked into the blockbuster, box office mentality and it was destroying my sense of purpose in life. The loneliness of fame was messing with my head. Once you`ve been famous for a while and told your story, it can sound like a lie. You don`t know what`s true. It sounds like an article someone wrote rather than the essence of who you are."- Patrick Swayze

I get asked the question so often, I thought it best to make an announcement. I thought long and hard about it and if anything could have pulled me out of retirement it would have been an Indiana Jones film. I love working with Steven (Steven Spielberg) and George (George Lucas), and it goes without saying that it is an honor to have Harrison (Harrison Ford) as my son. But in the end, retirement is just too damned much fun. I, do however, have one bit of advice for Junior: Demand that the critters be digital, the cliffs be low, and for goodness sake keep that whip by your side at all times in case you need to escape from the stunt coordinator! This is a remarkable cast, and I can only say, "Break a leg, everyone". I`ll see you on May 22, 2008, at the theater!- Sean Connery

We did (a pre-Broadway run) in Boston and I was hit by a car. So, I missed the opening and the couple of months of the show in New York. No one has said `Break a leg` to me ever since.- Rachel Miner

I don`t feel threatened like Julia Roberts. Pretty Woman (1990) turned her into an overnight celebrity rather than an actress. Now her whole career is about box- office - - if her movies don`t break $l00-million. It`s not a burden I`d ever want to carry.- Winona Ryder

If I have to produce movies, direct movies, whatever to change the way Hollywood treats older women, I`ll do it. If I have to bend the rules, I will. If I have to break them, I will.- Naomi Watts

Interviews from the Premiere of "Summer Catch" COREY PEARSON (Eric Van Leemer) You played baseball in college, but you weren`t a pitcher. How hard was it to transfer your skills to pitching? A lot harder than I thought. Every hitter thinks he can pitch, every pitcher thinks he can hit. And it`s rarely the case. What position did you play in college? I played 1st base. Why did you take this role? I went after this role with both feet and arms and everything because I really wanted to do this. I mean it`s a chance to play baseball again. I basically told them they had no choice but to take me. So, they accepted my offer - so to speak. I said I`ll dye my hair, I`ll do whatever you need me to do. You wore some very interesting outfits in the film. Is that your normal style of dress? No no no no no. We took Van Leemer (his character) to the nth degree because he`s supposed to represent that "image" that`s destroying pure sports. What`s next for you? "Going Greek" which is an indie comedy - sort of an "Animal House" meets "American Pie" sort of a frat thing. When is "Going Greek" coming out? It was just at the Hollywood Film Festival and there`s sort of doing a distribution thing now, so it`s not for sure. Probably Spring Break time.- Corey Pearson

I like to help the whales, the otters, and the dolphins. When I`m acting and I take a break, the first thing on my list is spending time by the sea.- Leonardo DiCaprio

That`s my number one priority. I`m fairly confidant about what I do and I`m just doing the best I can."- Jon-Erik Hexum

I think if Jimi had had the right person, she would have said: `Let`s go to Hawaii and get rid of Jimi for a week. You need to crystallize your existence and achieve that clarity of vision. This is the word that separates human beings from gods: willingness. Most people don`t have that willingness to break bad habits. They have a lot of excuses and they talk like victims. And, like Jim Morrison or Jimi Hendrix or Marvin Gaye, they die as victims. But John Coltrane didn`t die as a victim.- Carlos Santana

I quit a year and a half ago and I turned into a werewolf. I went nuts. I`ve been smoking since I was in junior high school. I did a couple of episodes of The West Wing two years ago and I was in the middle of one of these psycho things and turned around and smacked the stage door as hard as I could and my fist immediately swelled up. Thank God I didn`t break anything, but that was the last episode I had of nicotine withdrawal. (on quitting smoking in 2003)- John Goodman

Sometimes under-preparation is very good, because it instills fear and fear is galvanizing. It makes you break out of yourself. If you`re prepared, then you think you`re ready, and if you think you`re ready, then you`re not ready.- Meryl Streep

(on the stress of delivering a summer movie in an era when release dates are often set by studios before a script is finished) It`s like you`re a runner and they beat the shit out of you and break your legs right before you`re supposed to race, and then they say, `Now go win the race.`- Tim Burton

If Hollywood gives you a break and it gives you stardom, then it can take it away. If you earn it, it can`t take it away.- Emilio Estevez

"Falling in love for the first time, and then the heart break of having it end, is difficult, but I don`t think it would ever hurt as much as when my mother was killed in the boating accident. I feel a part of my heart has already been broken, and that place is reserved for mother."- Natasha Gregson Wagner

To be a good actor you have to be something like a criminal, to be willing to break the rules to strive for something new.- Nicolas Cage

I have a little fantasy where in the last episode of the season, we slip into the prison`s sewer system, up through the grate, and pop out a hatch - and we`re face to face with Matthew Fox and spend season 2 on a tropical beach - jokingly linking his show, "Prison Break" (2005) to "Lost" (2004).- Wentworth Miller

There`s so much you`re expected to do and you follow a pattern. You make a record, you do a video. I like to break the rules a little bit more and I did in the 1970s, I should try a little bit more now.- Elton John

(embroiled in a custody battle with Dita Von Teese over their collection of dead pets) I have four taxidermied baboons, two monkeys, a white peacock, a turtle and a wild boar. I went through a dramatic lifestyle change with my home after the break-up. I left it. When you get separated, you lose so much. I don`t know what she`ll say when I ask for them back.- Marilyn Manson

"People thank me for giving them a break from life." - referring to his Gilligan character- Bob Denver

Any time I break up with Dawson or question him, viewers turn against me.- Katie Holmes

(On ending the Spider-Man film series with the third installment) "To me it seems like this is a natural point for the team to break up because we have a lot of story conclusions that were going along for the main characters for the first two movies and we kind of tie almost everything up for the third movie. It feels like a trilogy to me and it feels like the end."- Tobey Maguire

I started off as a model and struggled for some time until I got a break as an actress. I was too stubborn to let go and was sure I was in the right place at the right time. I just fought and I think that`s how I am where I am today.- Natasha Henstridge

I would seriously question whether anybody is really foolish enough to really say what they mean. Sometimes I think that civilization as we know it would kind of break down if we all were completely honest.- Elizabeth Hurley
