Celebs' summer plans

Celebs' summer plans -- Find out what Brad Pitt and Milla Jovovich are doing this season

”Just the thought of sitting in the dark watching Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Kevin Costner really puts the action into our adventure.”
— Blaine Edwards and Antoine Merriweather, ”Men on…” critics from Fox’s In Living Color

”I have a stack of books that I want to read this summer. On the top of the pile is Mary Gaitskill’s novel Two Girls Fat and Thin.”
— Susan Sarandon, star of Thelma & Louise

”Anything my parents don’t want me to see.”
— Bart Simpson

”I’m looking forward to reading the Stephen King book Four Past Midnight. Every time I start reading it, though, it is four past midnight, and I fall asleep.”
— Kevin Nealon, star of Saturday Night Live

”I’m looking forward to rereading Tropic of Cancer, by Henry Miller, because when you read it the second time you get a whole new perception of it. Also, I want to see Backdraft.”
— Milla Jovovich, star of Return to the Blue Lagoon

”This is the first time in 34 years I’ll be able to spend a summer evening to myself — I’ve always had a radio show to do in the past. I’m planning to do a lot of star gazing and bird-watching. I’m a railroad fan, so I’m looking forward to reading (Michael Cordell’s) Red Express.”
— Sally Jessy Raphael, talk show host

”I want to read Mark Helprin’s A Soldier of the Great War, but I’m also bound to read War and Peace because I promised my daughter that I would. But above all, I’m looking forward to the movie Robin Hood, so I can catch Kevin Costner running around in those green tights.”
— Linda Ellerbee, journalist, author of Move On

”I want to take my kids to see Bill Murray in What About Bob?, but it’s rated PG. Do you think that’s okay?”
— Daniel Stern, star of City Slickers

”I’ll be completing my album and then promoting it, doing videos — work, work, work. I also want to see Terminator 2 when it comes out.”
— Ozzy Osbourne, heavy-metal singer, currently working on Say Hello to Heaven

”I just picked up the latest albums by Luther Vandross (Power of Love), Keith Washington (Make Time for Love), Teddy Pendergrass (Truly Blessed), and Oleta Adams (Circle of One). And I want to read that new Michael Jackson book (Michael Jackson: The Magic and the Madness).I know him personally, and I don’t think the bad things they’re saying about him are true. Everybody wants to go after someone who’s doing something; it’s basically envy.”
— Teddy Riley, lead singer of Guy

”My mother always wanted me to read The Secret Garden. So this summer that’s what I’m going to do, and then I’m going to see the [Broadway] musical.”
— Jan Hooks, star of Saturday Night Live

”I’m looking forward to a production of Peer Gynt in Stockholm directed by Ingmar Bergman, one of my heroes.”
— Marie Fredriksson, singer, Roxette (Joyride)

”I’m excited to see Guns N’ Roses on tour, and I want to see the Madonna film, Truth or Dare.”
— Per Gessle, singer and guitarist, Roxette
