The best digital talk from Feb. 6, 1998

“It’s so difficult to imagine [the special effects] when you are a part of a scene. It just looks so real — that’s what I couldn’t believe. When the ship was tilted up in the air and the stunt people are falling and bodies are tumbling and crashing… I honestly sat there and went, ‘I can’t believe I’m in this film.’ It’s so epic and so grand and exhilarating. It’s a very funny feeling.”Titanic’s Kate Winslet on Entertainment Tonight Online

“The thing I have a problem with is that people constantly disappoint me….I question people’s motives [in Hollywood]. I’m always wondering, Why are they talking to me? I’m weary about it, ‘cause I’ve been burned a couple of times. I don’t kiss with my eyes closed tight, if you know what I mean.”Scream and Scream 2 scribe and Dawson’s Creek creator Kevin Williamson on RoughCut Online

“When I was first on the set of Broken Arrow, I had never been on a movie set before….And I met John Woo, and John Travolta and I became good friends. I was slated to have died early in the film [but] Woo kept rewriting….And 20th Century Fox…signed me to do three pictures. I was shocked. Can you imagine? I said…’Are you serious?”’ — Ex-L.A. Raiders football great and Firestorm star Howie Long on RoughCut Online

“[The spelling of my first name] is something I regret not changing earlier on. Actually, Steven Spielberg said I should have changed the spelling. Ralph used to be pronounced ‘Rafe.’ Maybe five or six generations ago it wouldn’t have caused so much confusion.”Oscar and Lucinda’s Ralph Fiennes on E! Online
