Well, it’s quittin’ time for me today – I’m ready to eat some pizza and go to bed at 8pm. That probably won’t happen, but a girl can dream. In any case, I leave you with a special present from the Met Costume Institute Gala on Sunday – which you already know was a hot mess. Joshua Jackson photobombed Anne Hathaway (most likely accidentally) and it’s pretty funny, though she probably wasn’t amused. You don’t steal an Oscar-winning actress’s spotlight, PACEY. Will you never learn?

Anne Hathaway actually blew me away with her punk transformation for the Costume Institute Gala for the “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum (or Met Gala for short). Doesn’t she look great as a blonde? Every year celebs dress to the hilt for the event for whatever the theme is. This year, it’s punk. So keep that in mind when looking at these photos — these looks are supposed to be crazy and over the top.
BEST: Anne Hathaway, January Jones, Sienna Miller
WORST: Almost everyone else, but especially Kerry Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kim Kardashian and honestly there were so many more I couldn’t even deal with.
PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY: Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway didn’t feel like talking to TMZ’s paparazzi and cameramen, and TMZ is pissed off about it. Apparently Hathaway was at LAX when TMZ people came up to her. Rather than deal with them, she made a beeline towards what she thought was her SUV waiting for her — but as she opened the door, she realized she had the wrong car. However, she asked if she could get in and wait until her car got there, because that’s how badly she didn’t want to talk to TMZ.
TMZ then posted the video with “Anne Hathaway’s parents didn’t raise her right — because she hopped into the car of a TOTAL STRANGER … rather than have to talk to one of our photogs.”
I am no fan of Anne Hathaway (and I am in no way alone) but even I’m on her side on this one. Let her leave the f-cking airport.
On the other hand…if one wants to look on the other hand, you could argue that celebs and tabloids help each other out and now that Hathaway’s a super A-list Oscar winner, she feels she shouldn’t have to deal with this because she doesn’t need the publicity anymore, whereas long ago I’m sure she had to fight to get paparazzi attention. Circle of life, yo.
Meanwhile you have people like Courtney Stodden who would do anything to have that kind of paparazzi action. I wonder what she’s up to right now?

Chris Brown is a hated celebrity but apparently not as much as Anne Hathaway (which James Franco totally gets, btw). Star magazine released their super scientific list of top 20 most hated Hollywood celebrities. Weirdly Jay Leno is more hated than Chris Brown, which is making me laugh really hard. Here’s the stupid list:
20. Chris Brown
19. Jesse James
18. Taylor Swift
17. Shia LaBeouf
16. Lindsay Lohan
15. Angelina Jolie
14. Jay Leno
13. Ashton Kutcher
12. LeAnn Rimes
10 and 11. Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian
9. Anne Hathaway
8. Justin Bieber
6. Matt Lauer
5. Katherine Heigl
4. John Mayer
3. Jennifer Lopez
2. Kristen Stewart
1. Gwyneth Paltrow
This is a pretty good list. I’m shocked to see that Kanye West isn’t on here. I love him but I thought he was one of the most hated people around. I’m not sure if he’s psyched or pissed not to be included. I also didn’t realize that people hated Matt Lauer this much. Damn. Too bad this poll was taken after Justin Bieber’s idiotic Anne Frank statement or I’m sure he would be higher up. Kristen Stewart now has the dubious honor of being one of the most hated and least attractive female celebrities. Hey, good for her! At least she’s good at stuff!
Who is your ultimate most hated celebrity?

We all remember when James Franco and Anne Hathaway hosted the Oscars. It’s not the ceremony we remember so much as the intense backlash the pair received following their performance, which was, shall we say, less than stellar. James was stoned the whole time and Anne was, well, Anne. When all was said and done, things were left less than friendly between them – though they’ve since made up. Still, this story is not yet over.
In an interview with Howard Stern (via US Weekly), James admitted that he can see why some people find Anne a bit hard to warm to, and he kind of doesn’t blame them:
“I’m happy to revisit this, but you’re going to have to take the lead,” Franco, 34, warned Stern. “If you’re going to talk about it, you’re going to have to give your opinions . . . She does not want me talking about this, but okay.”
“Everyone sort of hates Anne Hathaway, and I’ve explained that I do too and I don’t know even know why sometimes,” Stern explained. “She’s just so affected [and] actress-y that even when she wins an award she’s out of breath, and then she has the standard joke that sounds like it’s [been] written [for her]. And it all seems so scripted and acted.”
“She comes off like the goody two-shoes actress and it’s just fun to sort of hate her,” the radio host added. “Hate is a strong word . . . but [I] dislike her, even though she is a great actress. Is that accurate?”
“I’m not an expert on — I guess they’re called ‘Hatha-haters’– but I think that’s what maybe triggers it,” Franco agreed.
“Are you still friendly with her?” Stern asked.
“We haven’t talked in a while,” the Oz the Great and Powerful actor admitted of his relationship with the now Oscar-winning actress. But he later added, “Anne and I made up, by the way. Let’s just get that on the record.”
“It was a really hard time after the Oscars,” Franco added. “She wasn’t mad at me, I don’t think . . . she didn’t say she was mad at me for what happened . . . The critics were so nasty.”
You can bet your balls she was mad at you, Franco. You ruined her big night!! It was Anne Hathaway’s special evening to dress up pretty and be a superstar and you robbed her of the experience! How very dare you.

I don’t use this expression lightly (or ever), but “epic fail” to Anne Hathaway if the story that her rehearsed Oscar speech was written so in order to make her haters like her a bit more is true.
From US Weekly:
Practice makes perfect! After facing some backlash over her emotional Golden Globe, SAG and BAFTA acceptance speeches, Anne Hathaway worked very hard on preparing her thank-you for the Oscars.
After winning the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award on Sunday, Feb. 24, the Les Miserables actress admitted that her feelings were hurt by criticism. “It does get to me,” Hathaway, 30, said. “But you have to remember in life that there’s a positive to every negative and a negative to every positive.”
Though the actress tries to brush off the negative comments, a source tells Us Weekly that Hathaway did practice her Oscar speech a lot to try and be more likable. “She was very aware that she had been the butt of everyone’s jokes,” the source says.
Listen, I don’t like try-hards of any gender, but I’m definitely aware that Anne gets more of a hard time for wanting it so badly when – if she were a man – it would just be expected that he is ambitious, driven, what have you. Is Anne Hathaway annoying? I don’t know, is the Pope Catholic (and a potential criminal? Zing!)? Obviously. But I think part of the problem with her is in the execution, not so much the motivation behind it. We all want to win – of course we do! – and to be the best at what we do. It’s just that she’s spent the past few months trying so hard that it actually became sort of laughable. The Academy probably would have felt bad if they DIDN’T give her the damn statue.
There’s also the false humility element. Like, you were in Les Miserables for 15 minutes tops. Did you do a good job with it? Sure. Would it have been criminal if the Oscar went to say, Sally Field or Amy Adams? Definitely not. Homegirl needs to chill now and take a bit of a break since she’s got her heart’s greatest desire. I think we all need an Anne Hathaway detox.
