(SOUNDBITE) Kate Winslet, actress, saying (English): "I think it's, you know, it's one of those things that, you know, we'll all remember where we were when we first heard about the twin towers in the same way that if you were alive at the time, you remember where you were when Elvis died, or when Princess Diana died." (SOUNDBITE) Justin Bieber, singer, saying (English): "I was actually coming home from school and it was on the TV and my mom was like, 'watch this' and it was really crazy, I actually saw the second plane hit on TV, and it was like, it was traumatic." (SOUNDBITE) Cloris Leachman, actress, saying (English): "I was in my bed when my daughter called me and told me what was happening. I turned on my TV and I saw it, and of course I was in LA, perfectly safe, very grateful." (SOUNDBITE) Ryan Gosling, actor, saying (English): "The whole illusion of Hollywood was just dismantled in a second, you know, and everybody stopped being these characters that they were playing, and they all just became people who were worried about people that they knew." (SOUNDBITE) Philip Seymour Hoffman, actor, saying (English): "I live in Manhattan. I was there that morning. I live about a mile away from where it happened, so I think there's a personal remembrance of that, that's pretty hard to shake." (SOUNDBITE) Shaggy, rapper, saying (English): "I was amazed at how they just went, I thought like, 'okay the plane hit it, you know, it's the World Trade Center, are you kidding me right now?' And when they just started falling, I was like 'wow. What is this?'" (SOUNDBITE) Evan Rachel Wood, actress, saying (English): "I think people just need to stop killing each other, I mean, it's getting ridiculous. This needs to stop, and people need to stop separating themselves, you know, I think people got to start coming together or else we're going to destroy each other, you know." (SOUNDBITE) Ne-Yo, singer, saying (English): "It really doesn't even feel like it's been 10 years, man, that's crazy to me." (SOUNDBITE) Selena Gomez, actress, saying (English): "I mean, everytime that day kind of comes about, I always think about the fact that I was in the 4th grade and what happened and all those feelings that we had and how everybody was distraught, and I just feel like everytime that comes around, I hope people acknowledge it and I hope that they just keep praying for our troops over there and just keep carrying on." (SOUNDBITE) Busta Rhymes, rapper, saying (English): "You know, we've been able to still show our resilience and our endurance as a city, as a people, coming together and representing and remembering the lives of the ones that we lost, is such a beautiful thing to know that we're not celebrating their loss but we're celebrating their lives, you know what I'm saying? And this ten-year anniversary is a defining moment to show how far we've come and how well we've bounced back, even though we still might be going through some hardship, we're still strong and we're showing the people a great thing."
