Says Bieber beef has ended

Interview

While on The Ellen Show, Rogen addresses his spat with Bieber.

We had a beef, I guess you would say. I don’t know if that’s the word the kids use. It’s not really a beef — I just called him some really mean things on social media for no real reason. And I only met him very briefly. I finally saw him today in the hallway of your show and I guess we made up, which is fantastic. It’s all my fault. It’s all just cause I decided to be mean one day for no reason whatso ever.

Defends gay actor comments

Interview

In an interview with DeGeneres on The Ellen Show, Damon defends comments he made in The Guardian about gay actors.

I was just trying to say actors are more effective when they’re a mystery. Right? And somebody picked it up and said I said gay actors should get back in the closet. Which is like I mean it’s stupid, but it is painful when things get said that you don’t believe…In the blogosphere there’s no real penalty for just taking the ball and running with it,” Damon said. “You know what I mean? You’re just trying to click on your thing. So.

On Air interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews DeGeneres during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about executive producing NBC’s television sitcom One Big Happy. 

It’s a story about love, and family, and friendships. And it’s Elisha Cuthbert, who is adorable and funny, and Nick Zano are best friends and have been childhood friends and they decided if they don’t have significant others by a certain age, he’s going to help her get pregnant because she’s gay and she doesn’t have someone in her life and she wants to have a kid…They’re going to raise a child together; all three of them. So it’s funny and it’s sweet and it’s great that NBC picked it up because it’s something that’s on television that is brand new and people have not seen this before. And there are a lot of ways to define a family.

Good Housekeeping interview

Interview
1011-ellen-degeneres-on-chair-mdnDeGeneres sits down with Good Housekeeping for a one-on-one interview.

Well, I’m definitely happier than I’ve ever been. I assume tomorrow I’ll be happier than today, because things are great. I have a great career and I have wonderful fans who really are supportive and loyal — because I’m not hiding anything from them. So, on the spectrum of happiness, I’m pretty high up there.

O Magazine Interview

Interview

DeGeneres talks about the work that goes in to her talk show Ellen:

It’s a lot of work to put a brand-new monologue and a brand-new show on the air and find comedy every single day. It’s challenging and it’s the hardest thing I have ever done, but it’s the best-suited thing for me. The more relaxed I get and the more confident I feel, the more I get to play and be myself and say whatever I feel like saying and not worry about whether I’m being a good interviewer. Although sometimes, I admit, you’re talking to people and you’re like, Oh please, have something to say! But in general I’m just more and more confident that if I’m myself, people are going to enjoy it more.
