Talking points

Amanda Seyfried

Seyfried wants fame-free boyfriends

While she remembers her relationship with Dominic Cooper fondly, Amanda Seyfried says dating Ryan Phillippe has put her off dating other celebrities. “Dominic and I were together for such a long time, so the coverage was always positive, but when you’ve just started seeing someone and that person is really famous, it’s more of a story,” the actress tells Glamour magazine. “When I was with Ryan, people followed me so much more, and that’s probably one of the reasons that I’m not looking to date someone who’s famous now.”

Arquette keeps talking about dead marriage

While David Arquette and Courteney Cox have remained close throughout their yearlong separation, a rekindling of their marriage doesn’t seem likely, Arquette admits to Access Hollywood. “We’re pretty much in the friend zone,” he says. “Though we love each other and we love to laugh and have a great time, it’s difficult.” And the state of their relationship isn’t something either has hidden from their 7-year-old daughter, Coco. “Kids know everything — they know a lot. They feel it, they sense it,” Arquette explains. “I was really honest with her throughout the whole experience. There’s not much we don’t communicate about.”

Depp wants you to take that camera away

Johnny Depp is not a fan of getting his picture taken. In fact, he tells Vanity Fair that when it comes to photo shoots, “You just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped. The whole thing. It feels like a kind of weird — just weird, man. Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like — you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid.” But Depp, who’s made a fortune from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, isn’t so much afraid of stupid things, including stupid salaries. “If they’re going to pay me the stupid money right now, I’m going to take it,” he says of some of his film roles. “I have to. I mean, it’s not for me. Do you know what I mean?”
