From the New York Daily News:
Anne Hathaway kept nipping out for secret cigarettes at the Hollywood Life House at the Toronto Film Festival. A spy says, “Her people don’t want anyone to know she smokes.”
Now, I’m by no means encouraging anyone to smoke (and I am STILL smoke-free, bitches!!!), but I have to admit I’d always kind of viewed Anne as this prissy little princess type, and the more I learn about her, the more I realize that she is definitely flawed and therefore way, way cooler in my eyes.

Here’s the much buzzed-about photo of Senator John McCain, celebrating his birthday in 2006 on a yacht, along with Raffaello Follieri and Anne Hathaway.
Follieri, you’ll recall, recently pled guilty to like 5000 federal counts of total illegalness.
You can read the full story on this meeting here. I would read it and talk about it, but it’s long and seems complicated and there are no pictures. And you know how I feel about reading things that have no pictures.
I kind of wanted to make this a “Caption This” but decided against it since we already did one today. But feel free to try your hand at commenting it anyway, if you’d like.

Anne Hathaway takes off the tiara for this dramatic turn in Jonathan Demme’s Rachel Getting Married, which has already begun generating Oscar buzz for the actress. Here’s the trailer for the film. What do you think? Will you see this movie? Does it seem like she pulls off the role?

There’s this wonderful thing about spoiled rich-boy criminals: every now and then, it’s pointed out to them that sometimes the consequences of their actions suck. Or, ya know, penetrate.
Raffaello Follieri seems to have found out the — ahem — hard way that prison is no fun, as he pleaded guilty to fourteen counts of con-artistry in at Manhattan Federal court today.
He then begged the judge to transfer him out of his holding cell, citing “unspecified inmate issues.”
Meanwhile, W magazine seems to have scored the tear-jerker of an Aftermath Interview with Anne Hathaway.
“Right now I don’t have the wherewithal to be anything except professional,” she told the mag. “As soon as I found out about the arrest, I had to get on a plane to Mexico to do a press tour for Get Smart. And then I spent a week in shock at a friend’s house. And then I had to go back and do more press, and I haven’t stopped since … It’s a situation where the rug was pulled out from under me all of a sudden. But just as suddenly, my friends threw another rug back under me. One said, ‘Go stay at my house.’ And Steve Carell stepped up for me during an interview when someone asked a question [about the criminal investigation]. He said, ‘At some point you’re going to have to talk about this time in your life. You don’t have to do it this week. I’ll take care of anything that comes your way.’”
Awww … this just makes me love Steve Carrell even more!!!
Feel better, Anne! You dodged a bullet, sweetheart.

Ever since dumping that crazy conman Rafaello Follieri, Anne Hathaway’s fashion choices have been phenomenal.
How freakin’ amazing does she look at the Venice Film Festival premiere of her new film, Rachel Getting Married?
And it’s not just the dress that’s getting rave reviews!
The film is already generating Oscar buzz for Anne, who plays a drug addict who leaves rehab to attend her sister’s wedding.
“An award-worthy Anne Hathaway gives the story a clear central focus,” wrote the Hollywood Reporter, while Variety called her “fragile, angry, superb.”
Quite a jump from playing pretty princesses!
