I think of Anne Hathaway as an arbiter of class. I speak for myself, but I’ve never heard or read anything that depicted Anne to be any less than a contemporary Audrey … except for maybe the financial crimes of her ex-BF, but we can’t hold that against her. Earlier this week, Anne attended the Princess Grace Awards Gala here in NYC alongside Julie Andrews and Princess Charlene of Monaco (wow, she hangs out with such riffraff!). When I saw the pictures from the event online, I was ridiculously impressed by her ability to carry this embellished dress. I am a harsh critic of sparkle and shine on clothing, but Anne’s Valentino could make a convert out of me. This got me thinking: what other celebrities have rocked sparkly dresses with total class? There’s not an ounce of garishness on any of these ladies.

You’d think Anne Hathaway would be happy with hosting the Oscars and getting nominated once herself. But no, that bitch is hungry for more! Watch her secret “Jersey Shore” audition tape here, as well as the ones by Paul Rudd and Dennis Haysbert. And please, wear a bikini in the hot tub. [Team Coco]
Comic book fans seemed uniformly disappointed by the first image of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Perhaps this new photo will set minds at ease. Sure, the cat suit might not be as shiny as usual, but in this shot it appears far closer to what we’d expected, complete with cat mask and ears. Anne has joked that she is subsisting on “kale and dust” to fit into this thing. Is it worth it? [ONTD] Keep reading »
Wow, Anne Hathaway‘s acting has improved 900 percent in the past 15 years. Movieline recently posted this video of Anne’s first commercial, for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, which was shot in 1997. Apparently, it was Anne’s first time on camera and it sure shows between those crocodile tears and overly-hopeful looks. Still, at least it’s a funny commercial. This could have been far more embarrassing.
“Last time we talked about how much I really don’t like working out, and I’ve kind of fallen. … I really like it now. I feel like, ugh, I’m that person. I came to L.A., got a bikini wax, went blond and loooove working out. The catsuit’s unforgiving, man. I’m a vegetarian and right now, I’m living on kale and dust for the training.”
—Anne Hathaway talks to Chelsea Handler about how she’s staying in shape for her role as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Nooooo, Anne! Eating next to nothing while you’re exercising tons just isn’t okay. Perhaps she confabbed with Jessica Alba, who recently shared with Lucky that’s she’s losing her baby weight by eating 1200 calories a day. “Basically I’m starving—it sucks,” she said. “I drink a lot of water.” Now, there is a part of me that would rather see actresses being honest about their strict diets rather than being all “I eat cheeseburgers all the time and am just naturally this skinny.” But I really wish these women didn’t feel the pressure to live in nutritional misery to whittle off pounds. And it really worries me that giving flippant quotes like these normalizes extreme dieting. [NY Daily News, ONTD]
When I think of Catwoman, I expect shiny pleather, whiskers and a whip-like tail. I do not expect a woman in a cheap looking black body suit wearing goggles that resemble Blu Blockers aboard a weird motorcycle thingy. So I am very disappointed by the first image of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Wardrobe! Get in here. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
“For three or four weeks we shot the promos and the little film that played in the opening. In the last week, when we really started focusing on the script for the live show and did a run-through, I said to the producer, ‘I don’t know why you hired me, because you haven’t given me anything. I just don’t think this stuff’s going to be good.’ … As far as having low energy or seeming as though I wasn’t into it or was too cool for it, I thought, Okay Anne is going the enthusiastic route. I’ve been trained as an actor to respond to circumstances, to the people I’m working with, and not force anything. So I thought I would be the straight man and she could be the other, and that’s how I was trying to do those lines. I felt kind of trapped in that material. I felt, This is not my boat. I’m just a passenger, but I’m going down and there’s no way out.”
– James Franco finally dishes on his infamously low-energy Oscar-hosting performance, which he was clearly and, now admittedly, unenthusiastic about, in an interview with Playboy. Find out what skit he was particularly unhappy about appearing in, after the jump… Keep reading »
“I found out when everybody else did. My reaction was, ‘Of course I’m pregnant. Why wouldn’t I be pregnant during this time?’ … It was exciting because this was the ultimate project. What we tried to do was be super diverse in the choices — from the Vivienne Westwood, which was a corseted ball gown, to a super futuristic modern Armani and the Givenchy couture, which was a little more traditional and medieval. We jumped across the board … Annie is a true movie star in every sense of the word without actually trying. She just is. She’s beyond talented and wears clothes so beautifully.”
As this was the “young and hip!” Academy Awards, host James Franco took advantage of that new fangled thingy called the internet and posted photos online as the event was happening. My personal fave of his photos was this one, featuring an insanely baked looking Franco, a deer-in-headlights Oprah, and a so-perky-we-could-slap-her Anne Hathaway. [Who Say] Keep reading »
