Hope Solo interview

Seacrest interviews Solo during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Dancing With The Stars. 

Everyone thinks he is so tough. Everyone thinks he’s this mean guy and this over confident guy, but really there is a soft spot for all you women out there. He’s like a big teddy bear.

James Durbin interview

Seacrest interviews Durbin during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his music video for Love Me Bad. 

We actually had to postpone the recording, because my voice gave out. My producer wouldn’t let me record the song. So, that was pretty funny, I’m like ‘Come on man, I can do this song, I swear,’ he said, ‘No You’ve had enough, man.

Adam Sandler interview

Seacrest interviews Sandler during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about dressing up as a woman for his role in the film Jack And Jill. 

The bra digging into the back and the eyelashes were the pain in the butt the most. I shaved them up nice and made them pretty for Pacino. He’s a really funny guy and he just is a really cool guy to hang out with. He looked cool, he’s in a leather jacket, he looks like Al Pacino. I walk out dressed as a woman, considering how ugly I looked, it was weird.

Freida Pinto interview

Seacrst interviews Pinto during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her role in the film Immortals. 

I play the oracle princess Phaedra, who has the power to see the future. Through one of her visions she sees that Henry Cavill‘s character (Theseus) is the chosen one who will defend and defeat the evil King Hyperion. My mission in the film is to convince him about my vision. Initially he is not convinced because he thinks I’m crazy.

Kellan Lutz interview

Seacrest interviews Lutz during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about he prepared for his role in the film Immortals. 

They would bring us small portions of chicken or kale or cashews, just really high in protein and good fats. Then we had an gym open 24/7. So, we could go sweat it out, and then go do our scene. I saw a screening of it [Immortals], and I loved it. I love action movies, and I love Greek mythology. Working on this, and seeing it on the screen was great. It’s very action packed, and it’s just such an original story that you kind of get lost in, and you want to know what happens next.

Hope Solo interview

Seacrest interviews Solo during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about being on Dancing With The Stars. 

It’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I mean, I feel so vulnerable. I’m out there for the world to see, being judged every Monday night. The competition that I come from, you have a winner, you have a loser. It’s clear-cut and dry.

Patti Stanger interview

Seacrest interviews Stanger during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about why she thinks everyone should duty date if you haven’t dated in a long time.

Sometimes it is not the guy or the girl you want, but it’s going on a date. It’s being appreciative that someone is buying you dinner. It’s practicing flirting and he may end up being the guy in the end. And it is definitely not necessary to reveal to your date that it is a “practice” date. The key is to date a pair and a spare. You should always have three at the same time.

Derek Hough interview

Seacrest interviews Hough during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about who he thinks will win Dancing With The Stars.

I definitely think that J.R. [Martinez] has really been a front runner all season, and he has done such a great job. So, I definitely think he’ll be in there. Hopefully Ricki [Lake] and I will be there. In the past seasons that I’ve won, I’ve felt more pressure to win, but with this season I don’t really feel that pressure. I feel like Ricki has accomplished so much already. She’s lost like 20 pounds, she’s healthy, she’s doing great, she’s learning dances. I feel like whatever the outcome, I think it is going to be a successful season either way.

David Beckham interview

Seacrest interviews Beckham during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about welcoming his new daughter Harper to the family.

So beautiful. Having a little girl in the house with Victoria is a whole different vibe now. She’s so chilled. Be a little more tender with a little girl. She’s so feminine! I’ve never had that before obviously with three boys. Everything she does is feminine. Her little noises. The way that she drinks her bottle. The way that she moves her hand. The way that she smiles.

Audrina Patridge interview

Seacrest interviews Patridge during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about the last time she saw co-star Kristin Cavallari

I was really excited, because I haven’t seen anyone in awhile. We showed up at the same time and we both had black and red on, it looked like planned it out.” So, will these two be working together again? Nothing in the works, but maybe one day. I mean, something different, because we both know each other, we are comfortable, so that’s always nice.

Redfoo interview

Seacrest interviews Redfoo during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about the making of his single Sexy And I Know It. 

A friend of ours came up with the idea of I’m Sexy And I Know It. When you hear it you just know that could be the biggest phrases in the world if it’s done right. We worked on that song for like four or five months.

Travie McCoy interview

Seacrest interviews McCoy during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about being number 1 on American Top 40.

We kind of knew we had something special with ‘Stereo Hearts,‘ but it’s really taken off! I’m still trying to catch up with everything. When Adam [Levine] cut his vocals I was blown away with take after take. Everything was so effortless for him. When magic like that happens you let do it’s own thing. Songs About Jane‘ came out was around the time we got signed, and went in to make our first record. We actually used ‘Songs About Jane‘ as a reference of what we wanted in terms of sound. So we’ve definitely been huge fans. When management asked us years ago who we wanted to collaborate with we said, ‘Adam from Maroon 5.’ It’s crazy how its come full circle.

Ricki Lake interview

Seacrest interviews Lake during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about who she thinks will win this season of Dancing With The Stars. 

J.R. [Martinez] is going to win. I feel like I won already and I resigned to take second or third and that will be just fine.

Michelle Williams interview

Seacrest interviews Williams during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about how she gained weight for her role in the film My Week with Marilyn. 

Believe me, if I could gain weight and get Marilyn Monroe’s body I would have done that a long time ago. Unfortunately, it doesn’t distribute that way for me. I added more of where I could, and I never looked at a scale. It was more of a feeling. “Do I feel like I’m filling out the clothes? Is this adding to my ‘wiggle?

Jackson Rathbone interview

Seacrest interviews Rathbone during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about co-staring in the film The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1. 

People cry at weddings! It’s the nature of the beast. Finally, we get to see these two characters that we all fell in love with, Bella & Edward, tie the knot and it’s very exciting. I think most people were really excited by the honeymoon scene!

Adam Shankman interview

Seacrest interviews Shankman during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about getting Tom Cruise to act in his film Rock Of Ages and his version of The Nutcracker. 

He [Cruise] was grinning ear to ear. He [Cruise] just said ‘I’ve never seen a movie like this before.

It’s kind of like an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Gothic retelling of “The Nutcracker” story and it’s not the ballet. We are going back to the original story of it.

Russell Brand interview

Seacrest interviews Brand during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about whats next for him in his career.

Next year I’m spending some time with the Mrs., then I’m doing a movie. It’s a serious movie. It’s from Diablo Cody, the Oscar winning writer of Juno, she’s written and directed it. I’m very excited about it. I trained as a serious actor so I did Shakespeare back in England. But you know me I like ‘mucking’ around so when it starts I might want to do a joke.

Mac Lethal interview

Seacrest interviews Lethal during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about how he came up with The Pancake Rap parody of Christ Brown’s Look At Me Now. 

I asked my fans on Facebook what they would like to see, and they picked that beat. I decided to give it an interesting spin so I thought of ‘Cook With Me Now’ just to change it. I didn’t want to do a Weird Al Yankovic, no disrespect, I just didn’t want to say ‘Cook With Me Now’ I wanted to actually be cooking, because I can cook rather well. So, I picked something really easy to cook, and shot it. It took about 16 takes. It would be two pancakes per take. There was a stack of about 32 pancakes.” Mac has been under the public radar for almost a decade, but past few years have gone rather well. He even encourages that other YouTube performers are able to.

Willow Smith interview

Seacrest interviews Smith during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about working with Nicki Minaj on her single Fire Ball. 

Nicki Minaj is an absolutely an amazing person. She has so much energy, and working with her was like just [a] spark. I think that she [Nicki Minaj] is a Rhinestone Teddy Bear.

Lady Gaga interview

Seacrest interviews Gaga during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about how her family reacted to the single Marry The Night. 

My dad called me and he was like, ‘That was so raw, and the angles that you chose.’ My dad really understands me. So he said he loved how linear it was in the beginning, and then in the middle it was chaotic and at the end it was graphic, but that it wasn’t really.

My family knows my vocabulary. My sister’s a fashion designer too so I guess in our household we’re sort of used to talking about art and fashion and music all the time. And same thing at the Grammy nominations, he’s like, ‘That opening was the [expletive]!’ And he said something like ‘Never wear red, white and blue, always be the underdog.’ I was like, ‘Yeah okay Dad have you had a couple drinks?

6 Dec, 2011

T-Pain interview

Seacrest interviews T-Pain during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about the kind of music he likes to listen too.

There was actually an entire year that I didn’t listen to anything, but country. I’ve studied country, listened to their harmonies, and I implemented that into my music too. I have a lot of fun. I was always told, if you love what you do then you never work a day in your life.

Lady Gaga interview

Seacrest interviews Gaga during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about how Britney Spears teaches her to always preform her hit songs.

I would be so mad if I went to see my favorite pop singer, and they didn’t play all the big hits. When I went to see Britney [Spears], I just remember thinking in that moment, ‘If I feel this way, I bet the audience feels this way.

7 Dec, 2011

Sarah Hyland interview

Seacrest interviews Hyland during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about how she got the part of Haley Dunphy in the tv show Modern Family. 

I had graduated high school and the show that I was on in New York got canceled. I was like, ‘Why not move to LA. It’s about to be pilot season. Sarah gave herself a 2 month goal to find work and tells us “‘Modern Family’ was one of my first 5 auditions and a in month, I booked it. So, I made my 2 month goal.

J.R. Martinez interview

Seacrest interviews Martinez during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about a part of the first American Giving Awards. 

[AGA is] A show about honoring people who are doing great things on a local level. We’re going to honor those people who are stepping up, and have found a way to do something for other people. I’m about trying to highlight people, and tell their stories that have done great things in their community.

Ludacris interview

Seacrest interviews Ldacris during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about co-staring in the film New Years Eve.

15 Dec, 2011

Hugh Laurie interview

Seacrest interviews Laurie during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about if this season will be the last of his show House. 

We’re still wetting our finger and sticking it up in the air to see which way the wind is blowing, and lots of things to be taken into account. It may very well be or we may drive on, and see if we can make clear two decades. We all are very proud of the shows we’re doing now and I hope the people enjoy them.

Katie Couric interview

Seacrest interviews Couric during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about if she would ever consider being on Dancing With The Stars. 

I love to dance. I think anyone who knows me well knows that. I taught swing dancing in college and I know how to cut the rug a little bit. Then Katie told us that the show actually did reach out to her and she was flattered, but told them.

Pitbull interview


Seacrest interviews Pitbull during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about possibly guest staring on Glee. 

We’re speaking about it to see if I have a role that fits or if they just want to get the music going. I haven’t filmed anything yet. That must have been some other bald chico with glasses on.

Dolly Parton interview

Seacrest interviews Parton during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about what she likes to do in her free time.

My husband and I go at midnight or one o’clock in the morning. I love to see what they will have, so I am often doing that. Not often, often, but 2 or 3 times a year I’ll go.

12 Jan, 2012

DJ Pauly D interview

Seacrest interviews Pauly D during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his dating life.

I’ve been doing the single thing forever now. I’ve been a DJ my whole life, and I’ve been in the nightclub scene. That kind of gets old. I’ve got these great things going on in my life, and I don’t have that other person to share all these things with. I’m looking!

Jennifer Hudson interview


Seacrest interviews Hudson during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about people’s reaction to her weight loss.

Why does image matter. Why can’t it just be about the talent. Only those who have went through this kind of experience will fully understand how different it is being on both sides of the fence. It is so interesting to see how differently you are treated.

13 Jan, 2012

Seth Rogen interview

Seacrest interviews Rogen during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about when he meet Pauly D.

I got so drunk with him I am still partially hung over. I saw a picture of myself, that my wife, the next day was like, ‘What did you do last night?’ and showed me a picture of myself on people.com and I could not have looked more trashed. I was like, ‘I don’t even remember that being taken.

18 Jan, 2012

Kyle Richards interview

Seacrest interviews Richards during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about which housewife has the best make on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and her favorite musical artist.

I think probably Adrienne [Maloof]. I like Adrienne’s makeup, and I like Taylor [Armstrong]‘s makeup, because it’s not too much.

I love Adele. I’m obsessed with Adele right now. I love Bruno Mars, and I have Bieber fever. I’m not going to lie. I’m a Belieber.

19 Jan, 2012

Denise Richards interview

Seacrest interviews Richards during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her first kiss with Charlie Sheen.

When I said that I thought ‘Oh, boy. That might sound a little bit creepy.’ My point being that we have such a good relationship, and now we are very good friends. We’ve become confidantes for each other, and we’ve been through a lot. So to be on this side of it I’m thrilled. Everything is good.

Jessica Alba interview

Seacrest interviews Alba during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about how she lost the weight after her pregnancy.

I ate better, all organic and fresh food, tried to stay away from packaged and processed food, and I exercised. I was looking for safe and healthy products to give my baby. I read that there are so many toxic chemicals in our everyday products, even in baby products. I was completely horrified.

Roshon Fegan interview

Seacrest interviews Fegan during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks him who he would like to see perform on Dancing With The Stars. 

I think it would be really wild to see will.i.am. Because he’s such an abstract person, he’s got a lot to say, and I think he would kill the dance floor. I got this feeling he’s got moves in him.

20 Jan, 2012

Antonio Banderas interview

Seacrest interviews Banderas during On Air With Ryan Seacrest on Ricky Gervais jokes about Banderas accent.

I understand that I have an accent. I learned English when I was 31-years old, that particular moment I felt that I should revindicate the Spanish language and then just recite a poem from a play that I did many years ago from Calderón de la Barca. He tells us the poem actually about taking someone prisoner. So, he says it was literally directed to Ricky.

Adam Lambert interview

Seacrest interviews Lambert during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about the meaning behind the title of his album Trespassing.

On one level, I wanted the people listening to feel like they were Trespassing into my world. Getting a closer glimpse in to what makes me tick, and who I am. Not just be the person you see in the tabloids or the person you see on ‘American Idol’, but the full real person.

Joe Biden interview

Seacrest interviews Biden during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his advise to college students.

What we’ve done is increased the commitment to the community colleges by $25 billion federally. That’s number one. Secondly, you will find what’s happening in your county I expect, community colleges are now partnering with businesses who are looking for employees. For example, I just was with Siemens. Siemens is a gigantic corporation. They had a choice to spend half a billion dollars to build a plant in China or in North Carolina. They chose North Carolina. They did it for a whole range of reasons, but one of them is to be able to partner with the community colleges where they went in and helped them set up tech programs, where they guarantee internships and then jobs for anybody who passes through the program. Number three, what we’ve done is seen to it that you are now able to afford to go to there [community college], but you either qualify for a Pell Grant, you qualify for a direct loan, [or] you qualify for a tax write off if you’re doing it yourself at 28. You can write off the cost of the bulk of that education. College tuition has gone up in the last ten years over 280+% more than healthcare and so, there are a lot of things that these universities and community colleges can do to bring cost down by modernizing.

Katherine Heigl interview

Seacrest interviews Heigl during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about if she regrests leaving Grey’s Anatomy. 

I would love to at least go back for a handful of episodes to just sort of see where she’s [Izzie] at, see what she’s up to, and sort of resolve her relationship with Alex. I get very jealous if I ever watch the show and Alex is with somebody else. I just think Izzie needs to come back in and claim her man.

Nick Jonas interview

Seacrest interviews Jonas during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about when his fans can expect new music from him.

Here’s what I will say. Once I’m kind of up and running in the show and feeling comfortable I’d say that my brothers and I are definitely going to start writing again. It’s been a while. It’s going to have been three years at that point which is obviously the longest stretch we’ve ever gone without releasing [music]. But we’ll start writing, and get more into it and hopefully we have something out for our fans. If not later this year, maybe next year.

27 Jan, 2012

Brad Pitt interview

Seacrest interviews Pitt during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about if he will propose to Angelina Jolie.

30 Jan, 2012

Katharine McPhee interview

Seacrest interviews McPhee during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her charity work against malaria.

I share a dream with Malaria No More, and that’s to see a day when no one is dying from malaria. Until that day comes, I’m committed to fighting the disease and look forward to helping kids in Africa have a greater chance at achieving their dreams.

31 Jan, 2012

Demián Bichir interview

Seacrest interviews Bichir during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about auditioning for the film New Moon. 

[I was] auditioning for New Moon but it was not in my plans to be a vampire or anything. Then we started talking about this gardener, you know, and he began telling me the story, and so I got a little bit confused.  I didn’t know if he was a vampire gardener, and just trimming the bushes by night! And then he was about this story, A Better Life, that I read a year later, and I found a beautiful story and amazing character.

Daniel Radcliffe interview

Seacrest interviews Radcliffe during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about rumors that he didn’t get along with Rupert Grint.

Rupert and I never text, we never have in 10 years of filming. We are crappy at texting each other back and we both know that’s how the other person is and we just accept it. The next time I see Rupert we will sit down next to each other and chat and it will be like old times. Me and Rupert are very, very good friends it’s just that we are not constantly texting each other.
