Thought Die

Lollapalooza, that was one of my worst shows. We just played at, like, 3 in the afternoon; it was like the hottest, most miserable thing. My shoes were melting. I just thought I was going to die. It was the most horrible experience. I lasted, what, four songs? In front of quite a lot of people. That was one of my least favorites.

- Alison Mosshart

I Think Betty

'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn' by Betty Smith is one of my favorites. Even though it doesn't have any monsters or crazy fantasy in it, it's such a raw story, and I can really relate to the characters. I think it's a beautiful story.

- Amandla Stenberg

Some Penn

There are many great fighters in the UFC; some of my favorites are Rodrigo Nogueira, Lyoto Machida, and B. J. Penn, but aside from these guys, the UFC has many great fighters in every division.

Two Big

Book Tell

I wanted to write a book like a rapper would write it - I didn't want to hold back. Rappers catch a lot of slack; I'm not going to be cursing up a storm, but when I look at Nas... his first album is one of my favorites. I want to tell stories like that.

- ASAP Rocky

Memory Very

I'm horrible at quoting movies! Even my very favorites are not easily recalled or programmed to memory. When people start movie quoting around me, I'm that person who just smiles and then looks up the reference later.

- Ashley Rickards

Love TV

I love 'Modern Family; I think that is a great show. I don't get to watch tons of TV, but when I do, 'Sons of Anarchy' is pretty much the number one, and 'Modern Family' is one of my favorites.

- Ashley Tisdale

About Note

One of my favorites is one called 'Rory's Radio' that I wrote about my brother Jeff's best friend growing up - his name was Rory Dunigan. I dedicated my first record to my brother, who got killed in a car accident in 1999, and I really didn't have any songs on the first album about him, nothing on a personal note.

- Ashton Shepherd

Next Some

My next project will be a Christian album, another one. I wrote the songs for the ones you're referring to, but I want to do some of my old gospel favorites. That's what my next album's going to be.

- Charlie Daniels

About James

I did 'Lonely Hearts' with John Travolta and James Gandolfini. Talk about getting over your fears. These guys were amazing! Also, Cuba Gooding, Jr. is one of my favorites. We've made 3 films together. He is such a generous, giving actor.

Love New

In my downtime, I love eating. It's pretty much my favorite hobby. Discovering new restaurants and revisiting consistent favorites is one of my top things to do when not filming.

- Christie Laing

Love Louder

Preston Sturges is one of my favorites. I learned about dialogue and timing from him - louder, faster, funnier. But I do love Mel Brooks.

- Clara Mamet

Doing CGI

Because it was one of my favorites from the Arthurian legend, one of the things that I really enjoyed doing was the legend of the crystal cave. In my head, it was fun to imagine what it was going to look like because there was a lot of CGI involved, in seeing visions of the future reflected within crystals.

- Colin Morgan

Sean Penn Penn

For me, one of my favorites, director-wise, is Tim Burton. I also really admire the work of actors like Sean Penn. He is probably my favorite actor because of his dedication and commitment to roles, and the ability to morph and change himself when he needs to. It's about dedication and commitment and a passion.

- Colin Morgan

Charge Songs

My favorites are songs that I get an emotional charge from, whatever genre they're in.

- Colm Wilkinson

Use Correct

Using the correct apps can completely change how your photos look. It's really exciting because once you've already taken a good photo, it can become 10 times better if you use the right combination of apps. My favorites are VSCO Cam, Afterlight, Facetune and SKRWT.

- Connor Franta

Like Younger

Carey Mulligan and Felicity Jones are two of my favorites. I'm not so much younger than them. I like that. It's kind of aspirational.

- Daisy Ridley

Old Use

And it really is a good feeling to get up there and make that sound. I'm not stuck in a time warp, because I can use as many of the old songs as I want to, just the favorites.

- Dan Hicks

Book Movie

For any book, it's distilling all of the moments in the book that are either fan favorites or pivotal that you have to have in there, and how you tie that all up into a two hour movie is not the easiest job.

- Dana Brunetti

Doing Other

Doing Tim's film is always going to be the most pleasure. Let me just put it that way. So, without drawing favorites one way or the other, getting back with him and doing Mars Attacks! was certainly a special treat.

- Danny Elfman

- Dav Pilkey

Love Richard

On the comedy side of what I love as a filmmaker are Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce, and Eddie Murphy; those are my favorites.

- Dean Karnazes

Big Fiction

I wasn't a big science fiction aficionado, there were a few films like 2001 or Blade Runner that were favorites of mine, but since I started this series I have gained more respect for the genre and become more of a fan myself.

- Joe Flanigan

Craft Kid

I have two different categories of favorite films. One is the emotional favorites, which means these are generally films that I saw when I was a kid; anything you see in your formative years is more powerful, because it really stays with you forever. The second category is films that I saw while I was learning the craft of motion pictures.

Play Violent

When it comes to civilian deaths, violent hostilities play no favorites.

- Jon Krakauer

Dancing Hamburg

As a performing group, the Beatles began by playing old rock favorites, for dancing, to tough audiences in Liverpool and Hamburg. When they began writing seriously, they discovered that they couldn't compose in the early American rock tradition.

- Jon Landau

Always Billy

My favorites growing up were always Billy Joel, Michael Jackson... and Placido Domingo.

I would be lying if I said I cut out all dessert. When I'm training, I try to satisfy those cravings with a slightly healthier dessert, like a piece of dark chocolate or whipped cream and strawberries. Those are two of my favorites!

- Josie Loren

Legend Like

Joaquin Sabina is one of my favorites. He's like a legend. He's like our Bob Dylan, or our Bruce Springsteen. He's one of the most talented writers of our Latin music.

- Juanes

Loved Worked

All of the directors I've worked with I have loved and would work with again. I have no favorites.

- Judd Nelson

Play Behind

I know authors shouldn't play favorites with books, but 'Release Me' really is right up there for me. The characters truly came alive on the page and drove the story as much as I did from behind the scenes. It was a pleasure to write, and I'm so thrilled that it's the first of a trilogy because I get to spend more time with the characters.

- Julie Kenner

Some Angela

Like most lit nerds, I'm a voracious reader. I never got enough poetry under my belt growing up but I do read it - some of my favorites, Gina Franco and Angela Shaw and Cornelius Eady and Kevin Young, remind me daily that unless the words sing and dance, what's the use of putting them down on paper.

- Junot Diaz

Always Like

I try not to have favorites, but Barfly is one that I like. My favorite is always the one I just finished.

- Bernadette Peters

Give Roman

That is the Roman way: to give favors to the favorites.

- Hans Kung

Coverage

BB cream is my lifesaver! It's so light on my skin, plus it protects and gives me coverage at the same time. My favorites are from Maybelline and Smashbox.

- Bethany Mota

Words England

Novels by British writers are among my favorites because our family has enjoyed travel in England and because they are written with an economy of words as if they were written with a pen instead of a computer. Penelope Fitzgerald is a favorite.

- Beverly Cleary

Bad Notorious

Notorious B.I.G. was one of my favorites. I started getting into hip-hop around the Bad Boy era.

- Bobby Moynihan

Build Act

Motown's policy was to build one act at a time or their favorites.

I basically sat down for a month, with all the Sun stuff I could find and just picked out my favorites. I didn't think that they were indicative of '54 to '57, although I tried to stay within that period.

- Brian Setzer

Play Country

The jazz chord substitutions in a country song... that was another thing that bent people's ears. I guess that my favorites are the unique ones. It's not how fast you play. It's that unique blending of different stuff I'm most proud of.

- Brian Setzer

I Think Movie

One of my favorite authors, Garbrielle Zevin, she did a book called 'Elsewhere,' that is one of my favorites, and I think they're making that into a movie too. I really want to be in that one just because the story is so beautiful.

- Isabelle Fuhrman

Proud Squat

I can squat 405. I'm proud of that - that's one of my favorites.

- Bryce Harper

Many times the players get in there and it's just about as well as they could have done, and other times they get in there and they favorites and they don't win.

- Ivan Lendl

Back Away

I watch a ton of movies. Going way back, I like 'The Godfather.' 'The Matrix' was one of my favorites - the first one; they got a little carried away after the first one. Those are two that stand out.

- J. B. Bickerstaff

Book Enjoy

The characters are always the focal point of a book for me, whether I'm writing or reading. I may enjoy a book that has an intriguing mystery or a good plot, but to become one of my real favorites, it has to have great characters.

- Candace Camp

Love Steak

I love a good steak. I like my meat. I love broccoli - it's one of my favorites - and corn, too. I mix it up with my vegetables.

- Caroline Wozniacki

I Think Very

I really feel like social media - it's like all these tiny stages that you put yourself on. And you come to rely on these likes and favorites, and it's this applause and this validation that you start to need. Then it's like you don't know how to soothe yourself, and I think it's very pernicious.

- Carrie Brownstein

Love Young

I really love young Tom Hanks. He's just one of my favorites. He's a great, quirky every-man. I also love Zach Braff. I really love actors that are quirky and interesting, that sort of try to portray 'normal' people.

- Jake Epstein

Love Always

I love 'Ocean Avenue' by Yellowcard. That's always been one of my favorites.

- Cassadee Pope

Children Like

My buildings are like my children, so I cannot have favorites.

- Cesar Pelli

Been Riff

One of my favorites has always been 'Swap Meet.' One of the reasons why I like that is it's a song that's in a drop-D tuning, and of course, also being a guitar player, it's one of the songs that I really like the riff on it.

- Chad Channing

Sports Play

Of course there is school and sports, but I also like X-Box 360. 'Black Ops 3' is one of my favorites. I also like to play the guitar and piano.

- Chandler Canterbury

Opera Always

Theatre and opera were always the twin kingdoms that I felt I had to conquer, because they were my parents' favorites.

- Diane Paulus

Want New

I'm getting Puppetmasters, too. They're one of my favorites. And they're coming out with new Puppetmasters. I try not to get everything, but I want so much.

- Jason Mewes

Fiction Mostly

When I lived in China, there were no libraries. My mother bought books for me, and they were mostly the classics. I read 'Peter Pan,' 'The Secret Garden,' the 'Rosemary' books, and Kipling's 'Just So' Stories was one of my favorites. No, I didn't read historical fiction. It didn't exist where I was growing up in China.

- Jean Fritz

Love Mostly

I listen to music mostly in the evening. I've come to love what is called world music, like the Zimbabwean Oliver Mtukudzi and the Colombian singer Marta Gomez. I also love the Irish folk singer Mary Black. Other favorites include Chet Baker, Eva Cassidy, and Billie Holiday.

- Jeannette Walls

Student Graphics

I have a weak spot for late '60s-early '70s yippie paperbacks and protest manifestos. I find them at flea markets or online. One of my favorites is 'Right On,' a compendium of student protests made into this 95-cent paperback with the most amazing graphics.

- Doug Aitken

More Side

I'm a bit more of a suspense reader on the adult side, but my favorites were the ones I grew up reading.

- Jennifer Armentrout

Love Some

Some of my favorite actresses are Cate Blanchett, I love her. I love Zoe Saldana, and Julianne Moore is one of my favorites. I like women who choose diverse roles and have that strength, which I think all women have but some women embrace it, present it, and live in it.

- Jessica Clark

Love Pretty

I love scary movies! My two favorites are pretty neck and neck: 'The Orphanage' and 'The Strangers.'

- Jessica Parker Kennedy

Love TV

I revisit old favorites like 'Buffy' and 'Battlestar Galactica' when I'm bored. I am obsessed with 'Scandal.' I love TV.

- Jessica Valenti

- Karen Thompson Walker

Love Obviously

I really love Celine. Obviously. Alexander Wang. Givenchy. Those are probably my main favorites. Dolce & Gabbana, too.

Movies Knack

I seem to have a knack for picking movies that go on to be cult favorites.

One of my favorites of all time was with Jim Jarmusch, called 'Dead Man.' I was in that with Johnny Depp. I ride really well, and I shoot a gun really well. I love the genre. Once I did Westerns, I was hooked.

- Lance Henriksen

Sports

Sports cars from the '50s and '60s are my favorites.

- Franz von Holzhausen

Love Some

I tend to write some, then outline some, then delete some, then go back and rewrite some. I love revising and hate first drafts. I have to wear bedroom slippers. My current favorites come from the Zetter Hotel in London. They have little tobacco pipes on the toes.

- Lauren Kate

Been Jennifer

Barbra Streisand has always been an inspiration for me. I admire Jennifer Lopez because she's been against all the odds, and she's made such a name for herself, and she can put her name on anything and it sells, and I admire that about her, but Barbara Streisand and Woody Allen are my favorites.

- Lauren London

Love Dr

I don't watch a lot of T.V., and I hardly ever have time to keep up with series, though I do love reruns of old favorites from my childhood like 'Dr. Who', 'The Goodies', and 'Get Smart.'

- Garth Nix

Video James

I like movies in particular, on video or T.V. I have lots of old favorites, like Danny Kaye in 'The Court Jester' or 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' or James Stewart in 'Winchester '73.' But I also like a lot of modern films.

- Garth Nix

My Own Still

The first purchase I made with my own money was a single by The Kinks, "All Day and All of the Night" and still one of my all time favorites.

- Gary Calamar

Listening Joe

I have two favorites: Reading Kierkegaard while listening to Mozart's Piano Concerto 9 in E Flat Major, and reading early Bazooka Joe comics in Hebrew.

- Gene Weingarten

Voice Soulful

And one of my favorites was Eddy Arnold of course. He just had that smooth, soulful voice.

- Little Milton

Play Famous

Sometimes I like to play the soundtracks to famous musicals so we can all sing along. South Pacific is one of my favorites. Our neighbors must hate us.

- Louise Brown

Love Book

One of my earliest memories is of seeing my mother in her beach chair, reading a book under an umbrella by the water's edge while my sisters and I played beside her. Of all the life lessons she taught me, that is one of my favorites: to take time at a place I love, restore my spirit with books and the beach.

- Luanne Rice

Game Prefer

I enjoy almost all of the game we kill. I only like to eat game that I have cleaned. I guess duck and dressing are still one of my favorites. We prefer fat green-winged teal or wood ducks for our dressing.

- Phil Robertson

Next Big

I eat as much as the next girl, but I work my butt of in the gym every morning! The key is moderation. I splurge on the weekend. A big bowl of pasta and a delicious slice of cake for dessert are my favorites.

- Giuliana Rancic

Boxing Everybody

In boxing, everybody has their favorites.

- Thomas Hearns

Predecessors

I honestly don't read that much. Obviously I read chess books - in terms of favorites, Kasparov's 'My Great Predecessors' is pretty good.

- Magnus Carlsen
