‘Lost Boys’ is one of my all-time faves. I just thought it would be great to be a vampire. I remember this movie called ‘Once Bitten,’ which is about an ’80s sort of power girl who became a vampire and was really, like, sexy. Hair like she was from ‘Dallas,’ shoulder pads, big earrings.
Lena Headey

Bradley Wright-Phillips
I like the collarbone, a very clean collarbone. I think there’s something also very delicate and balletic about that part of a woman’s body, and I’m not really a cleavage person, but I do like a back or a shoulder; I think there’s something very alluring about backless dresses.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw
When it comes to MMA, there is a big chip on my shoulder. There is a way that I look at myself. I think it’s really, really important, and it’s something I’m not really apologetic for it. As I get older, and I win more, I start to embrace it even more.

My show ‘The Big House’ was picked up; they flew me to New York. I’m about to step on stage to announce Kevin Hart’s ‘The Big House.’ And a hand grabs my shoulder, ‘Kevin no, they just decided to cancel it.’ It’s a serious smack-in-the-face business, and either you can take it, or you can’t.
Kevin Hart

David O. Russell
What’s comfortable to me is familiarity. Comfort has nothing to do with the size of the garment. I do find something quite comfortable and charming in a too-narrow shoulder, a sleeve that’s too short or too long, a pant that’s too high or too low, hems that are trod on.
