As a real person, he wouldn't last a minute, would he? But drama is about imperfection. And we've moved away from the aspirational hero. We got tired of it, it was dull. If I was House's friend, I would hate it. How he so resolutely refuses to be happy or take the kind-hearted road. But we don't always like morally good people, do we?

Hugh Laurie, comedian

I always feel more comfortable in chaotic surroundings. I don't know why that is. I think order is dull. There is something about this kind of desire for order, particularly in Anglo Saxon cultures, that drive out this ability for the streets to become a really exotic, amorphous, chaotic, organic place where ideas can, basically, develop.

Malcolm Mclaren, musician

Being on a Michael Bay set is... well, it's the only set I've ever been on. But I would imagine there's no set that's run quite like it.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, model

I have a really, really, really normal family. And by normal I mean we're all nuts on some level. I think you've gotta be a little nuts to pursue any kind of creative job. I was also a really good kid. I know that sounds really dull, but I didn't rebel in the traditional sense.

Anna Paquin, actress

Ben Nicholas, actor

And though I might have learnt more wit and advanced my understanding by living in a Court, yet being dull, fearful and bashful, I neither heeded what was said or practised, but just what belonged to my loyal duty and my own honest reputation.

Yvonne Craig, actress

Technique! The very word is like a shriek of outraged Art. It is the idiot name given to effort by those who are too weak, too weary, or too dull to play the game. The mighty have no theory of technique.

Making a movie is a long, dull process. There's a lot of waiting around.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, actress

If we insist that public life be reserved for those whose personal history is pristine, we are not going to get paragons of virtue running our affairs.
