I think he wants to be a big old movie star because when I was on Broadway, he jumped on stage in the middle of a performance." — Chastain, telling The View co-hosts about her three-legged rescue dog
"There are so many animals in need it almost doesn't make sense to breed and support that. I can't even believe how many animals get killed every day in shelters because there's no room.

"Her name is Penny, and she's a little tiny teacup frilly dog. So, people come on set and are like 'Oh, whose dog is that?' And we say 'It's Penn [Badgley's] dog.' … And then they say, "Oh, what's its name?' And we say 'Penny,' which makes him seem like this narcissistic Paris Hilton dude." — Lively on her dog
"I've been glued to the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. My dog Sid's parents were champion dogs and he's got the best bone structure! I feel like a mum — I'd love to put Sid in a show but don't want to pressure him into anything he might not want to do.'' — Kelly Osbourne
"Mikey has pretty much taken over my own Twitter account. I feel like because he's so new right now, I am a total psycho. It's novel and it's new, and every moment is documented. I hope I don't start a Twitter for him. I feel like then I will be one of those crazy people. Although by the time this comes out in March, who knows? Maybe he'll have his own TV show." — Ritter on her dog
"He has total freedom on the set. We'll all be working hard, and then he'll walk by and everyone will be like, 'Awww, Bebe!'
