James Franco and Anne Hathaway are the youngest hosts of the Oscars, ever—it’s a stat that’s been repeated over and over again since it was first announced that the two would be taking on hosting duties. But, uh, how did they do? I’d give Anne an A- for being friendly and charming, and for taking beaks from her scripted dialogue for off-the-cuff moments. Meanwhile, James gets a C for having stank face throughout the whole show. Also, was it just me, or did he seem to be squinting to read the teleprompter an awful lot? Homedude looked like he needed glasses, or like he’d jumped on the Pineapple Express in the green room.
After the jump, we grade the dynamic duo on some of their best and worst moments. Keep reading »
It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “In Love, Maybe,” who had a great vacation fling in a foreign city that she hoped might turn into something more. “Once I got home, everything seemed dull without him,” she wrote.”The life we’d jokingly talked about having together sounded good. We started emailing a little. Without saying anything about it, I’ve started learning his language and saving money to go back.” After the jump, find out what happened when she did finally go back.

While most of Hollywood was feelin’ classy after the Academy Awards
, a select group of starlets wasn’t afraid to get crass for the sake of fitness. On “Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards,” Jessica Alba
, Minka Kelly, Jessica Biel and Sofia Vergara
made a mock infomercial for a new workout craze called Hottie Body Humpilates. “Hump it up. Hump it down. Take a train to humpy town!” Jimmy sang, as the girls thrusted at oversized exercise balls. Then Eva Longoria
appeared to give her glowing review of the workout: “I couldn’t stop humping! I hump everywhere—at work, at the beach, in the car.” Finally, Lindsay Lohan
put in her two cents: “Lions hump upwards of 40 times a night. I’ve spent thousands of hours watching them.” Funny. Keep reading »
Maybe it was the fact that I’ve been in an outrageously good mood for the last few days. Perhaps it was the delicious glass of wine I was drinking. Or maybe (almost) all the female celebs who walked the red carpet at last night’s Academy Awards really did look so incredible that I was hard-pressed to find anything I absolutely despised. How could I put together a Good, Bad & Ugly slideshow if the the worst I could find was “meh”? Even the WTF dresses walking the red carpet were WTF in a fun, fascinating way, rather than a “good god, who let her leave the house?!” sort of way. So, I decided to say, “To hell with it!” and dole out mostly love. Keep clicking to see which stars looked stunning, which were sort of strange, and who was simply so-so.
“I am on a drug. It’s called … Charlie Sheen. It’s not available because if you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and children will weep over your exploded body. Too much? I woke up and decided I’ve been kicked around, I’ve been criticized, I’ve been the aww shucks guy with this bitchin’ rock star life and I’m finally going to completely embrace it. I’m gonna wrap both arms around it and love it violently.”
—Charlie Sheen talks to “20/20″ about his recent woes, and rants lots more about “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre and CBS, who he says he plans to sue for canceling his show for the remainder of the season. All I have to say is—whoa, dude. That is too much.
After the jump, Charlie on “The Today Show,” for more good-time lunacy. Keep reading »
