Quotables: Tilda Swinton on Acting

Photo: Tilda Swinton at a Tokyo screening of 'Io Sono L'amore' on October 25 I'm not really interested in acting. […] I don't want there to be films. It's not like I'm looking for opportunities to do things. …I would like an opportunity to have a good sleep and get on with some writing. ---The enigmatic, somewhat-otherworldly Tilda Swinton, on how she totally plans to quit acting, you know, one of these days. Anybody else, Tilda. If anybody else talked like this---anybody else---my eyes would roll so hard, they would roll right out of my head and down the stairs a...

A photo of Lindsay Lohan I know, I know, it's a lot to take in. Feel free to give yourself a moment to breathe ... BUT DOESN'T LINDSAY LOHAN ACTUALLY LOOK GOOD FOR ONCE?! I've gotten so used to the awful makeup and the plastic surgery and the meth that I forgot that she used to be a looker. But that's all about to change with these gorgeous photos!
