Are you guys way excited about this? You should be. We’re going to see Anne Hathaway be gorgeous and perhaps attempt to discuss anal sex with James Franco, who will tragically be too preoccupied with carrying the show. There will be stoner jokes, art jokes, hipster jokes, and jokes about whatever Anne Hathaway does (Jake Gyllenhaal’s penis?).*
Here’s the official announcement:
“James Franco and Anne Hathaway personify the next generation of Hollywood icons— fresh, exciting and multi-talented. We hope to create an Oscar broadcast that will both showcase their incredible talents and entertain the world on February 27. We are completely thrilled that James and Anne will be joining forces with our brilliant creative team to do just that.”
See? Fresh and exciting, that’s exactly what I said. Following this line of thought, I’m going to go ahead and predict that the Academy Awards in 2016 are going to be hosted by Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber. If I were you, I’d go ahead and mark your calendars.
*I don’t have anything against Anne Hathaway, it’s just that I feel like this is going to be James Franco’s Special Day. It seems like everyone who’s ever watched a movie thinks he’s getting nominated for his work in 127 Hours, and meanwhile all Love and Other Drugs seems to be good for is screencapping Anne and Jake’s (NSFW) naughty bits. Tough break for Anne, that’s all I’m saying.

Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal apparently spend a great deal of time naked in their new movie Love and Other Drugs, so naturally they’re going to get naked while promoting it as well. Well, not naturally, actually. I feel like I’ve seen plenty of actors promote movies where they’re in the buff for a good portion of it while keeping their clothes on, but hey! You know, good for them. Good for them for being so comfortable with their bodies.
Anywhodickie, the pair have three covers of Entertainment Weekly coming out. Which ‘naked + content’ copy are you going to pick up?

“Hang on, hang on, I have to say something! I have been Jake’s onscreen love interest for years, all right? You keep the conversation to me and only me, otherwise I’m going to get nasty!”
Thank goodness that Anne Hathaway spoke out for Jake Gyllenhaal this past weekend at a press conference for their new movie, Love and Other Drugs, ’cause I’m sure that he’s just totally unable to do it himself. During the conference, Jake was – clearly – asked whether or not he was carrying on a relationship with Taylor Swift, and that gracious old Anne Hathaway interjected with that explosion of information up there.
Um, you go, girl?

Anne Hathaway debuts what she’d look like with a short pixie-ish cut on the set of a new movie. Her rep states that the cropped look is just for the movie — and it’s just a wig — and after looking at it for a few minutes, I went cross-eyed I decided I was unsure of whether or not I dug it. I’m all for short styles on women — Emma Watson, I think, looks amazing — but this kind of short style reminds me of the haircut that I ended up with in sixth grade when my grandmother took me for a “day of beauty” at her hair salon.
Things did not turn out well.

“The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out. Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?”

The movie isn’t scheduled for release until March of 2010, but the first stills released of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland look absolutely amazing. I’m convinced that Burton must be slightly insane in that way that geniuses usually are.
Johnny Depp plays The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter is Queen of Hearts and the Snow Queen role is played by Anne Hathaway. No picture has been released of Alice yet, but Australian actress Mia Wasikowska (best known for her role on HBO’s In Treatment) stars in the film.
