Olivia Munn
“My favorite book is Replay, by Ken Grimwood, about a man who replays his life and the decisions he’s made over and over. The takeaway for me was that no matter what life you’ve led or the choices you’ve made, there will always be great love and great sadness—you can’t escape those two things. I think that’s a great lesson.”

Anna Kendrick
All Quiet on the Western Front, by Erich Maria Remarque; Slaughterhouse-Five, by Kurt Vonnegut; and The Things They Carried, by Tim O’Brien. They’re classics because they’re f–king great.”

Daniel Craig
The book he’s read most times is the Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman.  “They are fantastic children’s books. They’re about love and growing up and about how, as adults, we should see the world.”

Jessica Biel
“I recently finished Tender Is the Night, by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I’ve read it quite a few times and just love it. It’s tragic, and I think tragedies might be good for you: You read them and think, Maybe I’m not doing so bad—I’m doing OK!”

Bill Murray
“Well, my favorite author is Mark Twain. He’s smart, and funny…. But my favorite book is a two-parter by Laurens Van Der Post, A Story Like The Wind and A Far Off Place.”

Lady Gaga
“I read Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet every day.”
