I've had a lot of glamour come my way in the last 10 years – you know, movie stars and mansions and red carpets and trips to Europe and crazy stuff I never would have imagined – and I look at them as if I'm the bartender in the corner of the room. They've never gone into my psyche. I look at them with distance, and wonder. -Andre Dubus III

There is no such thing as a crazy dog person in New York. Are there people who are completely insane about their dogs? Hordes. But cat people may as well have whiskers and tails themselves.

I was home-schooled and I graduated super-early. But I've always had older friends, so I got to go to all their dances. I got the best of both worlds.

I'm also interested in pets with alopecia. And design. I'm surprised I haven't gone through with a homeware brand. The bedding, the comforters, the candles, the this and that. I would like to design everything. -Lisa Vanderpump

When I was old enough to know better, I ate a bar of soap in the shape of the Muppets' Fozzie Bear, because I loved him so much I wanted to consume him, even if doing so made me ill.

Puppets seem like vampires sometimes. They live, and you're depleted. -Henry Selick

The intuitive connection children feel with animals can be a tremendous source of joy. The unconditional love received from pets, and the lack of artifice in the relationship, contrast sharply with the much trickier dealings with members of their own species. -Frans de Waal

The Muppets have such a great tradition of bringing together all of genres of actors and all ages of actors. -Amy Adams

I am a pet person. My dog actually lives in Georgia now. But I work with animal trainers and pets quite often. I also volunteer at different places like animal shelters. It's good to be around pets.

To handle that stardom, the red carpets, the photo shoots, people all of a sudden recognizing you and following you in everyday life, it's a bit weird. It's strange, and it can have funny effects on you in terms of do you like it or don't you like it. Some people run away from it, some people embrace it; I found a good middle ground. -Roger Federer

I secretly wanted to act. I also wanted be a toy designer and make puppets. -Kate Micucci

I'm used to riding horses. My father used to breed horses when I was a child. I grew up in Tipperary, in the country, and lots of people have horses there. If my parents hadn't been in the business, we would have them anyway, as pets. And my cousin Richard is a jockey. -Kerry Condon

Learning about factory farms and their horrendous treatment of animals is what made me become vegetarian in the first place. I also support the education of the public on adopting pets from animal shelters or saving homeless animals off the street in lieu of buying them from pet shops. -Laura Mennell

If I could, I would not do anything else. I'd just be in the studio for my whole life. I would never go to parties, events, and red carpets. I would rather just be in the studio for the whole time. I don't even care. Nobody has to know what I look like. I just want to make music. -Ariana Grande

I've learned from my pets that it's okay to sit around, and people don't love you any less if you sit around all the time. In fact they might love you more, 'cos they always know where you're always going to be: you're always going to be laying in bed. -Maria Bamford

I have no idea why people want to watch puppets be the slightly meaner version of the weirdo holding them. It's beyond my comprehension. -Daniel Tosh

Some people say that their pets will tell them when it's time to go. I don't believe that. No animal of mine has ever told me he was ready to die. I wish it were that simple. Dogs can communicate, but they cannot talk, nor do they think in our language or on our terms. -Jon Katz

I tried to be like the richer kids as much as I could because I wanted to live on their streets, at least hang out on their streets and eat their amazing food and walk barefoot on their shag carpets. I became something of a pest in that way, and in general, other people's parents didn't like me. -Lynda Barry

Because we can't escape our ancient hunger to live close to nature, we encircle the house with lawns and gardens, install picture windows, adopt pets and Boston ferns, and scent everything that touches our lives. -Diane Ackerman

To this day, I love eating steak tacos before going to the red carpets. -Lupita Nyong'o

I wanted to be a farmer's wife. I thought it would be quite fun to wake up of a morning, collect eggs and have sheep and pigs as pets. I know now that it would also involve having to sleep with the farmer, but at the time I wasn't thinking about the sexual implications – I was 11. -Miranda Hart

'Filly Brown' gave me the wings to fly, but red carpets are still very uncomfortable. -Gina Rodriguez

You don't have to live on a farm to have chickens; in some places, you just need a little bit of green space and a tidy chicken coop. To me, they're nearly ideal pets. They feed us more often than we feed them! We have 2 chickens, Goldie and Paprika, and they each produce 1 egg a day, sometimes more. -Amy Robach

I think pets are a good thing, especially if you get them out of a shelter. -Mitchel Musso

Puerto Ricans who find they can no longer afford to keep their pets often choose to drop their dogs, sometimes even whole litters of puppies, at a beach – sometimes under cover of night, in secret – rather than surrender the animal to a city or state-run shelter where the animals will face grim conditions and almost certain death by euthanasia. -Juliana Hatfield

Red carpets and dressing up are a part of work that I enjoy less than some people. -Sally Phillips

I know that I basically have the same hair as Beaker from 'the Muppets.' -Brad Goreski

Funny enough, there have been puppets in everything I've written because I have a huge love of puppets. There's a big puppet musical at the end of 'Sarah Marshall.' I wrote 'The Muppets.' -Jason Segel

I remember clearly watching a 'Sooty Show' at a theatre and telling my mum I wanted to be up with the puppets, not in the audience. -Tom Riley

One of my obsession is animals. I'm into dog rescues. It drives me crazy when people go to pet stores and buy dogs. There are so many dogs that need a good home. And this sounds crazy, but I really believe they know what is happening and are appreciative, and I just think they make for the best pets. -Jim O'Heir

I probably shouldn't say this about all animals, but at least the farm animals that I've hung out with, and even when I go to the zoo usually, they're like a blank slate. I guess that's why I like them. They're puppets, and you can imagine them being anything you want. -Kristen Schaal

I never get used to the red carpets and premieres, to be honest, but when you're walking down the red carpet promoting stories such as 'Mabo,' it means everything to me. -Deborah Mailman

I was born with a love of animals, the same way I was born with brown hair. When I was a little girl in Rome, I always had pets, which I adored. -Isabella Rossellini

You can draw the character out of pets, and you can make them your friends, but they are animals, and they have to be allowed to live the lives of animals. -Paul O'Grady

Sometimes it seems the whole purpose of pets is to bring death into the house. -John Updike

I'm a huge Muppets fan. Gigantic. I think they're genius. I think they're some of the best work out there and completely underrated, just because of how genius they are. I love that kind of humor. It's so innocent but brilliant. -Andie MacDowell

I had a theatre company years ago when I was a young man, and we would do street theater. This guy did a workshop one day on fire eating, and I participated, and it was just one of those party tricks that you learn. My last endeavor doing that was with the Muppets, back in 1995 or something like that. And I haven't done it since. -Pierce Brosnan

I'm all about my rugs. I don't like a lot of color. The apartment isn't exactly monotone, but it's full of very soft shades. So, really, the fun is with the carpets. -Nina Garcia

I spent a lot of time in the White House in the public areas where reporters are allowed to go, but I spoke to people about the private quarters as well. Some of the things I learned were small, novelistic details. For example, the fact that there were still pet stains on the carpets from the Bush cats when the Obamas moved in. -Jodi Kantor

As a very small boy, my passion was nature, and I had pets – cats, a dog and a bunny rabbit – and I wrote a very small book called 'My Pets,' filled with their photographs and a discussion about my pets and how much I loved them… That was my first book. -Tony Buzan

I don't treasure things much – just people. And pets. -Felicity Kendal

The power of the 'Muppets,' and the popularity of these characters, is so iconic in people's lives that I had to distance myself from publicly. Not privately… Privately, hell, I'm with them for life, and I love these people. They're my second family. -Frank Oz

I travel way too much to have any pets. But if I could have one, I'd want a quokka. They're basically small kangaroos native to Western Australia. -Justine Larbalestier

On red carpets, as people throw questions at you, you try and answer as quickly as possible. -Chris Pine

I have pets, but they're the really ordinary sort – yellow Labrador, tabby cat, white rabbit, a few goldfish – that kind of stuff. Nothing very… extravagant or unusual or exotic, but I find, in terms of inspiration, Mother Nature is just it. -Graeme Base

I saw the Kino print of 'The Man From Beyond,' but apparently a superior new print has been produced by Restored Serials. Maybe a few snippets of missing footage will close up some of the plot holes, but I have my doubts. -Kage Baker

Ageing is very rare. We only see it in humans and laboratory animals and in zoo animals and in our pets. Basically, organisms that are protected from the external world. Once you create that protection, you live long enough to see ageing. -S. Jay Olshansky

I'm a talk-show junkie. I'd rather listen to real folks stumbling to express their own thoughts than to polished puppets reading what others have written. -Donella Meadows

I definitely liked the Muppets. I definitely liked Yoda in 'Empire Strikes Back' and Chewbacca. I don't know if I was a fan of puppets or those, like, specific characters. -Spike Jonze

Amongst the financial Twitterati, the term 'muppets' has come to describe any client used and abused by some financial predator. I've adopted the term to describe portfolios that have been assembled for purposes other than serving the clients' best interests. -Barry Ritholtz

What I want is the general betterment of pets. No-kill is a part of that. I'd like to see that policy enacted at all SPCA-type organizations around the country. -David Duffield

In days gone by, short-statured people were not only labelled as ugly, stupid and freakish, they were often owned by aristocrats and treated, at best, as entertainment and, at worst, as pets. -Stella Young

If I hadn't had a baby, a part of me thinks I might have turned up on the red carpets all the time and gone, 'Hi, it's me!' Maybe other people do it because they haven't got kids and they've nowhere else to be. But because I have, I don't feel like that. -Catherine Tate

Pet foods come in a variety of flavors because that's what humans like, and we assume our pets like what we like. We're wrong. -Mary Roach

The charity work is just a part of what I do. Like… I make time to clean my house, to care for my pets, to visit my extended family, because those things are important to me. Same with helping others. -Lori Foster

Now, and in the future, my focus is entirely on pets and children. I'm not a person who can turn a blind eye to injustice against them. -Lori Foster

The men I write can be intense, quiet, outspoken and outrageous, deadly or fun… but I would never waste time on a hero who wasn't honorable, who didn't protect those who couldn't protect themselves, who didn't value children and pets, who wasn't independent and unselfish. -Lori Foster

Dance looks absurd on film, I think, like little puppets moving around. -Jamie Wyeth

One of the best parts about my job is that I get to dress for red carpets and appearances, and I often forgo working with a stylist because fashion is half the fun of any event! -Mary Lambert

I would love to work with Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, B.B. King. I'd love to do something with Arctic Monkeys, Miles Kane, and The Last Shadow Puppets. If I got a call from Juliette Lewis or PJ Harvey, or Chrissie Hynde, that'd be a thrill. -Imelda May

I wrote a techno song about the four things I love in Germany to make myself happy, which are my grandfather, my two poodle pets, bread, and a strange but delicious Turkish dish called Doener Kebab. -Flula Borg

I have taxidermy pets that are very close to me. I have a little lizard with a head that comes on and off that I call Nicolas Cage because his face is long. And I have a big diamondback rattlesnake called Rufus, and I have some rats in jars and stuff. -Mackenzie Davis

Yahoo is in everything from pets to old people to finance to communications to e-commerce and more, and I really thrive on that. -Jerry Yang

I didn't bother with television myself because it consisted largely of windmills, puppets and pottery wheels, interspersed with elderly men smoking pipes while they discussed Harold Macmillan in Old Etonian accents. -Christopher Fowler

With a hardcover, you get two chances, a year apart, for the book to make an impact – often with a new cover featuring artfully crafted snippets of reviews, a new marketing campaign and maybe even a new publisher. -Christina Baker Kline

I think a lot of kids I've met in L.A. trying to act want to escape working long days and think acting is all photoshoots and red carpets. -Kiersey Clemons

I love taking advantage of red carpets. -Kiersey Clemons

Shelter dogs are the most loving, wonderful, sweet pets in the world. They understand being rescued, loved, and protected. The hubs and I have 2 rescued 11-yr-old Pomeranians, who adore us. -Faith Hunter

I tend to write short, brief snippets – I lean toward the chamber music end as opposed to the symphony end of things. -K. A. Applegate

You can exaggerate with puppets. You're not trying to look like real people. The way the Muppets are designed is really appealing. Puppets are best if they're exaggerated creatures. -Caroll Spinney

If having a beautiful lawn means putting up warning signs several times a year to keep children and pets off of it, it's probably a good idea to look into alternatives. -Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

I have never felt 'fat;' I just didn't realise how unhealthy I was until I look back at pictures. In the moment, I felt so beautiful, and I remember walking down red carpets with my make-up done in a little sparkly dress, and I thought I was so cute. -Khloe Kardashian

I stuff animals I find; I do roadkill. They're strangely fun to have. They're like easy-to-control pets. -Padgett Powell

Day-to-day, I don't wear make-up, my hair's not done, and I'm in ripped jeans and a Bonds tee. But doing red carpets is just part of work. -Courtney Eaton

I feel like I'm way too young to wear such heavy makeup all the time. It's just bad for your skin, but I'm always doing photo shoots or red carpets and events, so I obviously want to look good. -Kylie Jenner

People react differently to puppets than they do to human performers: they become more playful, more open. -Kathe Koja

For myself, I've kind of always been interested in pets because they're not human. -Shaun Tan

Disney features, especially the early ones, were horror movies with cute critters: Greek tragedies with a hummable chorus. Forcing children to confront the loss of home, parent, friends and fondest pets, these films imposed shock therapy on four-year-olds. -Richard Corliss

If it was up to me, I would just wear jeans and t-shirts, even to red carpets, but then no one would photograph me, so that would make me very sad. So you know, I've gotta keep up with the rest of the female population and sometimes try a little harder. -Shakira

No phone. No pool. No pets. No cigarettes. Ultimate freedom… No longer to be poisoned by civilization, he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become Lost in the Wild. -Christopher McCandless

Puppets interacting with other puppets is super complicated. You're juggling ten balls instead of three. -Duke Johnson

Walking in stop-motion animation is probably the most difficult thing you can do… The way that they have these puppets connect to the set is they actually drill a hole in the set, and they put a threaded rod up through that hole and screw it into the bottom of their foot, and that keeps them in place. -Duke Johnson

I think people are obsessed with their pets because pets don't speak. It's that simple. After you hang up the phone, you never hear a dog say, 'You're a liar, and you are making the same self-sabotaging mistakes that have kept you single for far too long.' -Taylor Negron

King Charles, who was also the Holy Roman Emperor, lived and worked in hard bare rooms with no carpets, crowding to the fire in winter, using the window's sunshine in summer. -Paul Horgan

'Poltergeist' was really the film that really scarred, but fascinated, me with puppets and dolls, clowns and stuff like that. -James Wan

Don't buy furs: that's No. 1. You can start with that. Then spay and neuter your pets. We destroy millions of them a year. Go to an animal shelter for a cat or dog. And read a book about how to care properly for your particular pet. -Loretta Swit

'Poltergeist' was really the film that really scarred but fascinated me with puppets and dolls, clowns, and stuff like that. I've always been afraid of clowns, and then my fear of puppets came around, and 'Poltergeist' was the perfect combination to scare me with a clown doll. -James Wan

Red carpets are awful. They're like a kind of purgatory – you stand there, and there are cameras flashing everywhere. One of my first red carpets was in Cannes for 'The Great Gatsby,' and I'd never seen anything like it. -Elizabeth Debicki

I was persuaded to see 'The Muppets' by a friend, and I regretted it. A very boring hour and a half. -Greg Rutherford

Crumpets I make myself. I love crumpets. You can't beat a good home-made crumpet. -Paul Hollywood

I like how people will post pictures of me with other women that I adore, hugging on red carpets, and say, 'See?' Are we so uncomfortable with love between two people of the same gender that we immediately label it as sexual? But I've never been bothered by the lesbian rumor. There's nothing offensive about it, so there's no reason to be offended. -Kerry Washington

Today's policies and political activity treat people like pawns. More than ever before, attempts will be made to use people like cogs in a wheel. People will be handled like puppets on a string, and everyone will think that this reflects the greatest progress imaginable. -Rudolf Steiner

One day, I hope to have a pot bellied pig and a wombat as pets. -Dylan Lauren

Funnily enough, the most danger I felt was when I did a story about exotic animals kept as pets in America. -Louis Theroux

Hunting really divides people in Britain. We keep pets, and we name our animals, but we're not too worried about industrial hunting practices. -Louis Theroux

I love pets, especially dogs. -Jurgen Klopp

You can't punch people in the face, punch people in the face, punch people in the face, and ask them to have tea and crumpets with you and think it's all good. Life doesn't work that way. -Matt Bevin

When I was young, we had nothing. The carpets and upholstery in the palace were full of holes. The floors creaked. Everything was so old. Yes, we had a piano, an upright given to us by the Fine Arts Department. But it was out of tune. -Bhumibol Adulyadej

The true fans were capable of not only painting their cars and homes their team colors, but also naming family pets and offspring after famous NFL all-stars. -Burgess Owens

If I were to reason like those who roll out red carpets, I would say we might have some repatriations from the City of London. -Emmanuel Macron

While my life shifts from refugee camps to red carpets, I choose them both because these worlds can, in fact, coexist. And for me, they must. -Meghan Markle

I've never looked at – with the exception of little snippets – very much of anything I've done in the last 15, 20 years. -Billy Crystal

I give complete respect to any couple that stays together, however they do it, whether they do it by going on red carpets or going hiking together, you know, or keeping themselves really quiet and trying to stay out of all that press stuff. -Chris Martin

People's financial situation has changed, and they surrender their cats all the time, because they're downsizing or moving to a property where they are not allowed to have pets. -Celia Hammond

Batley and Spen has a high proportion of people working in manufacturing, and we can boast the full range of industries, including high-skilled, precision engineering. We manufacture all sorts, from beds to biscuits and from carpets to lathes. We also have some of the best fish and chips in the country and some of the best curries in the world. -Jo Cox

Muscles. We're talking about muscles? They're like pets, basically, and they're not worth it. They're just not worth it. You have to feed them all the time and take care of them, and if you don't, they just go away. They run away. -Ryan Gosling

I love my pets, and I'm a big animal lover. I also enjoy the nature and countryside. -Amy Jackson

For people who may think they know, or have snippets of who I am, you can attack that person. That's part of being a public figure. -Tom Brady

It's a shame that gays who ought to be pushing boundaries have been domesticated and tamed and turned into pets by the Progressive Left. -Milo Yiannopoulos

Give me the flash lights, the red carpets, and all that goes with it. Please! Oh, and I love hoardings. I love them. Nothing makes me happier than my face splashed all over the city. -Karan Johar

Every 'Star Wars' film was about pushing what was possible in terms of effects, puppets, matte paintings, stop motion and, now, digitally. -Dave Filoni

In my bedroom, I have my yoga mat and the puppets I've made over the years, and because I'm very into smells, I have some burned sage on my bedside to help clear my head. -Lucas Hedges

Do not blow your own trumpets nor, which is the same thing, ask other people to blow them. No trumpeter ever rose to be a general. -Edward Everett Hale

I want to open an eye or two about what being an actor is really like because it's not all red carpets and photo shoots. It's like trying to get that job and going from job to job. -Kenan Thompson

I think all that we would know of America back home is foreign policy, and maybe the snippets of the madness of political culture. -Hozier

Having watched 'X Factor' over the years, they just haven't got it right. The male winners haven't been believable. They look like puppets; they sound like puppets. -James Arthur

I have dogs and birds as pets. -Coco Martin

The only difficult thing is learning to recognise the interesting bits from those millions of moments life provides you with every day and writing down those snippets. -John Grant

It wasn't until I got out in the world and started worked professionally when I realized that the people I admired were the ones who had taken the little snippets of what they learned that worked for them – and strung them together in their own technique. -Daveed Diggs

I think a lot of young girls see actresses, and they think of red carpets, and they think of 'Us Weekly,' and they don't really think about the breaking down of a script and what that requires and what you would need to pull it off. -Kat Graham

I have a Twitter profile, but I avoid red carpets and all that kind of stuff. I'd rather no one talk about me ever, and I just get to do my thing. I'm an introvert. -Greg Berlanti

I always wanted to be on 'Sesame Street,' that kind of a thing, puppets and fun and original songs and fairy tales. -GloZell

In the 1980s, I was quite well known for my knitwear, and a lot of inspiration came from carpets, where I found ways to use structures and colors and depth of colors. -Dries van Noten

As an entertainment journalist for over a decade, I travel to great places for work, from red carpets in Rio, movie premieres in London to celebrity sit-downs in Bora Bora. -Ashlan Gorse Cousteau

There are people who marry themselves. Somebody wanted to marry a tree. People marrying their pets. -Jeffrey C. Mateer

With social networks these days, everyone needs to know everything all the time. But the problem is, people are so used to short snippets of information that no one has any attention span anymore. I don't, anyway. -Eliot Sumner

I just really liked those trumpets and horns – Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie – and I honed in on that. I always looked for those big horn lines. -GRiZ

It's hard to find that perfect dress that makes you feel like a million bucks. I've found a few, and I wish I could wear them over and over and over again on red carpets. -Krysten Ritter

The 'Black Album' was my real first introduction to Metallica. I was, like, 12 or 13 at the time. We were just getting into music, and I liked that album a lot, but it didn't necessarily change my life. But when I started picking up all the other Metallica records, 'Master of Puppets' was the one to me that stuck out with its songwriting. -M. Shadows

If I was to play any song for anybody asking, 'What is metal about?' I'd just play 'Master of Puppets.' The progressions and the bridge are brilliant. -M. Shadows

There's quite a few people who said they couldn't play with two drummers, and I don't understand it. It's no different than playing with two guitar players, two trumpets, or two anythings. -Jaimoe

I do think we're in a period of time culturally where there is just this extraordinary connection that we have to our pets, and in many ways, they are displacing kids. They're so much simpler than dealing with a kid because of this unconditional love that does not get complicated by adolescence or any other manipulation. -Chris Meledandri

Owning pets is as close to a universal phenomenon as, I think, anything. -Chris Meledandri

As a child, we lived in flats, and I was never allowed pets. -Tim Pigott-Smith

My living room has an oak-wood floor, Persian carpets, floor-to-ceiling bookcases, a large ficus and large fern, a fireplace with a group of photographs and drawings over it, a glass-top coffee table with a bowl of dried pomegranates on it, and sofas and chairs covered in off-white linen. -Janet Malcolm

Over its 40 years, Muppets on 'Sesame Street' have addressed AIDS, divorce, a parent's deployment overseas, and a death in the family. But the show is addressing incarceration in a way it didn't used to: by bringing the show directly to the kids and families it wants to reach. -Elizabeth Flock

Jim Henson once allowed me to visit the Muppets on set and spent an entire day showing me how he and the other puppeteers performed Kermit and all the characters! After that, I was lucky enough to work with both George Lucas and Steven Spielberg on many fun animation projects and learned so much from them. -Paul Dini

I directed the play 'Amadeus' with puppets way back in the day for theater. I also studied puppetry at the Eugene and Neil Center with a lot of the 'Sesame Street' people, so I do have a little bit of a history with puppetry. -Steve Zissis

No, the Muppets are not communist. And the character of Tex Richman is not an allegory for capitalism in any way. The character is called Tex Richman. -James Bobin

Muppet films are never easy to film 'cause Muppets have no legs. -James Bobin

It's a beacon of hope in a dark world. You watch 'The Muppets' and you're smiling for an hour and a half, and then you go outside, and the economy is in crisis. -James Bobin

'Muppets' was very much an exercise in anti-CG and the anti-effects world. It was very much in camera. We wanted to create a world where tangible puppets walked around and talked to each other. You could touch them. You could meet them. -James Bobin

'Muppets' is incredibly analog, 'Alice' is very digital. -James Bobin

I've always liked the Muppets. I watched 'The Muppet Show' in England every week as a child. The show was originally broadcast in England. -James Bobin

'The Muppets' is really about innocence and charm and sweetness and light and having hope – and stupid gags. -James Bobin

The Muppets are always really positive when they come across adversity, and they always have the ability to see the good in people. -James Bobin

I wear trainers everywhere. Weddings, parties, definitely red carpets and fashion events. It's bad. And listen, I love shoes. I love high heels. But I buy trainers all the time. -Adwoa Aboah

I've always struggled with Hollywood feeling trivial. Red carpets aren't worth it. -Yara Shahidi

My wife is an Olympic gold medalist, WNBA All-Star, 'Jeopardy!' champion, and Rhodes Scholarship finalist who was sung to by President Clinton, sung about by Ludacris, and serenaded on 'Sesame Street' by a chorus of Muppets. -Steve Rushin

I live in Australia Zoo. I have a very private home. We've got three bedrooms, one bathroom… The carpets are rose-coloured, which grossed Steve out, but I love it. He let me do everything the way I wanted. The house is just warm and cozy and small. -Terri Irwin

I was a kid in the 1970s and '80s, and I was definitely inspired by Jim Henson's 'Muppets' and 'Sesame Street.' I was very curious about what was going on underneath the puppets I saw on screen. I made my own puppets, did puppet shows for schools, PTAs, churches, and the kids in my neighborhood. -Matt Vogel

I no longer enjoy drawing people's pets. I just want to draw what I want to draw and have people not tell me what to draw. -Lisa Hanawalt

It's not exactly calm at Christmas. It's a bit like the Simpsons appearing in a pasta advert – lots of bickering, crazy pets, and plenty of tomato sauce! -Sophia Di Martino

I love animals, but I don't think I can have pets. -Maneet Chauhan

Every time I see the rails of my photo shoots, it's like Dr. Seuss, or as if they've skinned Muppets. -Phoebe Waller-Bridge

When I first started doing carpets, my stylist and I would pose in the outfit in the mirror, and we decide what pose works with the outfit. -Madelaine Petsch

I've had bad experiences on red carpets where people didn't know who I was and were like, 'Get out of the way!' It's so embarrassing to have someone scream at you like you're not worth anything when you were invited there. -Lamorne Morris

When I worked on 'The Daily Show,' we had some puppets made of myself, John Oliver, and Jon Stewart. When I left the show, I stole the puppet. I took what was rightfully mine. -Wyatt Cenac

Even though I am sympathetic to newspapers, I am not entirely convinced by the newspapers' claim that Google News violates fair use standards in posting snippets from news articles on its site. -Glenn Kelman

I can't believe I managed to go through a liberal-arts and theater education and take all these women's-studies classes and never have addressed that the 'Muppets' were all boys, except for one pig who was obsessed with herself! -Janet Varney

I always say I owe my sense of humor to 'The Muppets' because I didn't necessarily know what was going on when I watched 'The Muppet Show,' and obviously, 'Sesame Street' was made just for me. -Janet Varney

I have two pets – a dog and a cat. -Janet Varney

I don't know exactly when I started watching television, but I know that Muppets and Smurfs hold privileged places in my memory. Without television, I surely could have mastered several classical languages or learned to play the violin, right? -Kim Brooks

I used to have visions of flashing lights and red carpets. -Lil Yachty

Celebs most likely pay someone to do their makeup for events, shows, red carpets, etc. My mind is blown sometimes when I see some of the horrendous contour or the uneven foundation. -Jeffree Star

I wanted to create a small town underwater where the characters were more like us than like fish. They have fire. They take walks. They drive. They have pets and holidays. -Stephen Hillenburg

I hated working red carpets, I hated the whole celebrity interview process. I just realized I'd rather be the person somebody wanted to ask questions to than the person asking the questions. -Dan Levy

I'm always going to have the puppets, probably not for the rest of my life, but I'm not going to stop doing ventriloquism anytime soon. I'm just going to add singing, recording songs, and maybe playing in a TV show. -Darci Lynne Farmer

All of my puppets have their own personalities, their own background, and they enjoy what they do. How they say things, sing things, how they talk. I kind of created them out of my own personality. They are all me. -Darci Lynne Farmer

I think I sound like the apocalypse destroying the Earth to the sounds of trumpets skating across the heavens played by angels. -Denzel Curry

All civilian politicians in Pakistan are puppets of the ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence), military, and the Taliban. -Subramanian Swamy

Our pets are a part of our family. -Kyle Richards

I'm very creative – making music, making puppets, that's my thing – but mainstream success and the demands that brings? No, not really for me. -Devin Townsend

I've turned my back on fancy parties and red carpets. I'm a writer, and if I did that, I'd never get anything done. -Pete Doherty

Women are often scrutinized when they have pets that men wouldn't have. We are immediately faulted for having the wrong kind of pet rather than anyone first think, 'Wow, she rescued an animal that would have been otherwise killed and gave them a great home – how sweet!' -Iliza Shlesinger

I don't think I've ever gotten to the point where I sent out Christmas cards! But if I did, they would have to feature my pets, that's for sure. -Mark Lanegan

My stylist told me Chanel wanted to dress me for the 'Stranger Things' premiere. It was such a big deal for me, knowing that Chanel wanted to work with me and that I was gonna go to one of my first big red carpets wearing Chanel. That was such a huge moment for me. -Sadie Sink

If they are going to be outside, make sure you wash your pets, because your pets will bring in a ton of pollen and they will roll around in your bed sheets, and now you're rolling around in pollen all night. -Mikhail Varshavski
