"It’s a big thing, it’s a big responsibility. James Dean is one of my favorite actors and I feel a very big responsibility to honor him and the person that he was, in this film… What inspires me about James Dean is not the person he was but the actor he was. He was such a talented actor. And when you go back and watch his films, the way he’s acting and his freedom and his believability and he just throws himself into it and lives in the moment. He’s doing everything that a modern day actor aspires to be, and that juxtaposes all of his movies with old school actors. That’s what’s cool to me about James Dean. Not the iconic figure that he’s been turned into, and what everybody thinks of when they think of James Dean and his rebellious nature – it’s the actor he was, that’s what appeals to me about James Dean.” —Dane DeHaan, on the responsibility he feels taking on the role of James Dean in the upcoming biopic, Life.

“The only thing I took seriously in my life was music. Before Thirty Seconds To Mars, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I was doing construction. I was breaking the law. Jared often jokes about kids from the wrong side of the track, I was definitely one of those kids. I reached a point in life where I needed some sort of change and music was the only thing that made sense.”
Something really cute that Lupita Nyong’o does on Instagram is pose her dress, shoes, accessories and awards/memorabilia together. As a Lupita stan and a photographer myself, I could not love this any more than I already do. Way too cute!
