-In the new THR cover story, Aaron Paul explains why he agreed to a Breaking Bad movie despite his fears of messing with the series’ perfect legacy: “I’m like everybody else on the planet — I think Vince [Gilligan] and the rest of the writers really nailed the landing with the ending of Breaking Bad, and why mess with that? But it’s Vince we’re talking about. I would follow Vince into a fire. That’s how much I trust the man. I would do anything that he asked me to.”

Jennifer Lopez Is a Hustler

jennifer-lopez-variety-cover

Jennifer Lopez is on the cover of Variety, in which she talks about American Idol (“Everybody was like, ‘Don’t do this. Your career will be over, and they won’t offer you any movies.’ I was like, ‘The truth is, I’m not getting offered a whole bunch of movies, so what are they not going to offer me?'”), how Alex Rodriguez supports her (“He loves being at every show that he can be at. I go to all his baseball games”), and what she’s like as a boss (“I’m firm. I’m not a yeller or a screamer. I think nobody likes to disappoint me, because I get very quiet. I’m also relentless. I don’t have hours”).

-Also, this is a great clip of JLo talking about accidentally making Constance Wu bleed on the Hustlers set. (I love that Cardi B interrupts her costars with “Wait a minute, actresses!”)

Julia Roberts Talks Hollywood Longevity

julia-roberts-marie-claire

-In her new Marie Claire cover story, Julia Roberts talks about how Hollywood has changed during her lifetime: “When I started, there wasn’t any social networks, the internet barely existed, people couldn’t take photos with their mobile phones. There were logical stages of career progression. You did a film, if it worked you’d have a chance to work again. If your second film was a success, you could get a better pay cheque and another new role. Now someone can come out of nowhere and achieve incredible things, which I imagine is very destabilising. Building a career was a lot more methodical 30 years ago.”
