The month of July showcased a cornucopia of emotions and experiences that sum up life as we know it. As usual, we were lucky to sit down with household names as well as some up-and-comers. Check out the gallery to see notable quotes from some of July guests.

‘I’m not professionally Black…Somebody once said to me… ‘What is it like to play a Black president,’ and I said, ‘I didn’t play a Black president. I played a president. I just happened to be Black. There’s a difference.’ – Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman on his role in ‘Deep Impact’

In this round of guest quotables, a bold line between the realms of imagination and reality was drawn. Love is a frequent topic of discussion, and this week was no exception. Check out the gallery for some extra photos and notable quotes from the last two weeks of interviews and share your thoughts.

It’s a myth, in my opinion, that the more damaged you are, the more gifted you are, or the more gifted you are, the more you need to be damaged. You need to be healthy. You need to be strong, healthy, sensible. You need to act in spite of your neurosis, not because of your neurosis.’ – Oscar nominee, Tony winner-turned-author, Frank Langella on Hollywood myths about success

From the arts and motion pictures to politics and sports, recent guests, who were born in places as far away as Latvia or as close as Sacramento, CA, had the studio (as always) buzzing with thought-provoking and lively discussion on sports, business, politics, scandal, arts and entertainment.
