“I thought this is a very, very bad idea,” Daniel Day-Lewis said after he accepted the title role of "Lincoln"(2012). “But by that time it was too late. I had already been drawn into Lincoln’s orbit. He has a very powerful orbit, which is interesting because we tend to hold him at such a distance.” Someone who was caught in Lincoln's orbit was 11 year-old Grace Bedell who wrote to candidate Lincoln this week in 1860. Bedell suggested that Lincoln, who was clean-shaven at the time, grow a beard. He took her advice. More than a century later, Day-Lewis' portrayal earned him an Oscar for Actor in a Leading Role.
"You don’t learn from success. It’s a fake positive. You learn from failure. You need a healthy amount to grow properly." -filmmaker Jon Favreau, here on the set of "Iron Man" (2008).

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio starred as one of cinema's most iconic couples in "Titanic" (1997). They reunited on the Oscars red carpet in 2016, the year DiCaprio won for Actor in a Leading Role. Asked about their friendship, Kate has said, “Sometimes we do quote the odd 'Titanic' line back and forth to each other, because only we can, and we find it really funny.”

In 2011, James Earl Jones received an honorary Oscar for his excellence and versatility. During his acceptance speech, which he delivered from London, he recalled his first encounter with film: "Four years old, sitting on a bench in the dark in Mississippi. Two storekeepers have taken a bedsheet and stretched it between their stores. One sells popcorn, the other sells soda pop. Is that familiar? And when those images start emitting sound on that bedsheet, and the shootouts and the fisticuffs start, I simply can't handle it. And I dive under the bench in terror, begging, screaming, 'Make 'em stop! Somebody make 'em stop doing that.' Well, I can't make 'em stop so eventually I joined them."
