Overexposed James Franco To Host 2011 Oscars With Anne Hathaway

Amelia, I will not be liveblogging the Oscars this year: Mr. Overexposure himself, James Franco, will be co-hosting the 83rd annual Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway. Maybe we’ll get lucky and he will get stuck under a boulder and cut his arm off onstage? I kid, I kid. But seriously, James Franco is damn near impossible to avoid these days. He just published a book, his new movie “127 Hours” is out, he does performance art dissecting “Three’s Company,” he’s posing in drag on the covers of magazines, and he’s apparently a grad student at, like, five different colleges simultaneously. (I am exaggerating, but not by much.) While that is wonderfully productive, he’s really just a not-terribly-interesting thespian whose forté is acting like a stoner. Anne Hathaway, at least, can sing, dance and act, which are qualities that might come in handy for an Oscars host.

I’ll be skipping this year’s Oscars, I’m afraid. I’ll learn all I need to know next season on “The Rachel Zoe Project” as Rachel freaks out over Anne’s dresses, I’m sure. [People] Keep reading »

10 Actors Who Are Also Artists

Macaulay Culkin & 11 Other Celebs Who Fancy Themselves "Artists"

Macaulay Culkin has been off the grid for awhile now, popping up looking sort of frail, which some gossip mongers attributed to a possible heroin addiction, but maybe Macaulay has just been too focused on his art to eat? And by art, I mean the paintings he’s apparently been working on with the two friends in his “collective” 3M. They just debuted their first pieces, among them this portrait of a dog playing poker (top), and another featuring He-Man painting the guys from “Seinfeld” (bottom). That one is my favorite. Also, I would much rather believe that Mac has just been devoted to painting, not shooting up, you know? [Buzzfeed]

Macaulay isn’t the only famous person who has tried his hand at a different creative medium. Plenty of celebs have  picked up the palette. Click through to see more celebs who fancy themselves artists.
