We're guessing it wasn't one of Dennis Quaid's old fishing hats: After seeing a scene from "In the Cut" in which Meg Ryan discovers her half-sister's head in a bag at the sister's apartment, one scribe at a Toronto Film Festival news conference asked the actress, "Meg, when you held the bag with the severed head, what was actually in the bag?"
You mean, does Sept. 11 compare to something really important, like my opening weekend box office?: When asked by Rolling Stone if the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks had an effect on him, Quentin Tarantino responded: "9/11 didn't affect me, because there's, like, a Hong Kong movie [where] they work in a whole big thing where they blow up a giant skyscraper.... And the shot almost is a semi-duplicate shot of 9/11. I actually enjoyed inviting people over to watch the movie and not telling them about it."
