The week in quotes from Hollywood in the Hub

"I was really humbled that Madonna came to my show."

--Lady Gaga, on set of the made-in-Chelsea video "Chillin" with DC rapper Wale and star of the Grammy-sponsored bash at Boston's House of Blues, tells MTV News that she was honored that Madonna checked out her NYC show at Terminal 5.

“It was pretty funny. I would go along with it for a little bit. Some reporters thought I was his brother.”

--Michael Schwallie, who acted as a stand-in for Matthew McConaughey during "The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" filming in Boston, says he even fooled reporters as a dead ringer for one of Hollywood's hottest hunks.

“These kids, this experience, is so inspiring and so passionate. It’s thrifty, profound, high-quality theater that happens to have been created by high school students.”

--Dresden Doll Amanda Palmer muses about her experience this weekend with students at her former high school in Lexington for a play based on Neutral Milk Hotel's “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea."

"When I'm in a community and filming ... instead of just being a 'sighting,' I like to have authentic evenings playing with the band."

--Kevin Costner, currently in town filming the downsizing drama "The Company Men" with Ben Affleck, spills about the gig last Thursday night with his band Modern West at Showcase Live located at 23 Patriot Place in Foxboro.

"This is the antithesis of something like ‘American Idol.’ You have kids in the movie who would rather give up a meal than miss dance class. There’s not instant gratification on Broadway, which is very much the underlying theme of something like ‘American Idol.’"

--James D. Stern, director of the quintessential behind-the-scenes documentary chronicling the revival of "A Chorus Line," tells Loaded Gun Boston that his film "Every Little Step" is no reality-show wannabe.
