Jesse Eisenberg Says Dressing Up For Awards Shows Is Like Going To A Bar Mitzvah

“I feel like when I was 13 and I had to go to bar mitzvahs every weekend. This is the same feeling. You have to put on a suit every weekend to go meet with a bunch of Jews. … I have this general sense of feeling like I don’t belong, even though I’ve talked to some other people that very much belong and they have the same feeling. I think it’s a room full of insecure actors, which is ultimately very comforting.”

Jesse Eisenberg, who is up for the Best Actor Oscar for “The Social Network,” gives a great analogy for awards season. As for the Academy Awards being “a room full of insecure actors?” Well, I’m just loving that description. [People] Keep reading »

8 Celebs Who Swear By Crystals

Over the weekend, Anne Hathaway made a pit stop with a friend at the Crystalarium in West Hollywood, a store that caters to the “metaphysical client.” After browsing for a while, Anne purchased two crystals. Since some people believe that placing crystals like these on different parts of the body can remove blockages, have healing properties, and surround the body with energy, I’m thinking that maybe Anne hopes the crystals will help her perform her best when hosting the Academy Awards in two weeks alongside James Franco? [People]

Interestingly, Anne is far from the only celebrity to believe in the healing powers of crystals. After the jump, other celebs who are proponents. I’ll let you decide if you think there’s something to crystal healing or if this is total quackery.

Today’s Lady News: Lots Of Boobs At The Smithsonian On Saturday

  • Breastfeeding moms are holding a “nurse-in” at the Hirschorn Museum at the Smithsonian on Saturday after a woman who sat on a bench to nurse her daughter in January was told by a security guard to go feed the baby in the bathroom. A 1999 federal law states “a woman may breastfeed her child at any location in a federal building or on federal property, if the woman and her child are otherwise authorized to be present at the location.” Washington, D.C. also has the Child’s Right To Nurse Law, which allows a mother to breastfeed her baby in public. The museum has since apologized, both publicly and privately, and said it will welcome the “nurse-in” this Saturday. [NBC Washington]
  • Yesterday, the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on health discussed the “Protect Life Act,” which would prohibit federal funding for abortion under health care reform (which is already technically the case) and would also stop funding from being withheld from groups that refuse to provide abortions. Rep. Joe Pitts, a Republican from Pennsylvania, introduced the bill. Fellow Republicans say the bill would close up loopholes that enable abortion, while Democrats say the bill is a ploy to chip away at a woman’s right to choose. [Washington Post]
