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.

Manolo Blahnik, shoe designer and cause of many of Carrie Bradshaw’s orgasms, is my new favorite person for not getting on the Anne “Graduate Of The Kanye School Of Modesty” Hathaway train.
From Interview Magazine:
I don’t even know Amanda Seyfried or whatever—they’re all the same! I try to remember—the only one I remember is Julia Roberts because she’s particular. Anne Hathaway . . . Pretty? Yes. Wonderful actress? Yes. But, I mean, I don’t even remember her. What is it about her?
My thoughts on Ms. Hathaway are the same as Blahnik’s. I don’t think she’s a bad actress at all. Where we differ is that I just can’t stand her image and public persona, whereas he can’t even remember her image or public persona. But guess who he loves? Oh, this is my favorite part.
Claire Danes. There’s rumors of feud that may or may not exist between Hathaway and Danes, but what is a fact is that Hathaway spoofed Ms. Danes on Saturday Night Live in a Homeland sketch, particuarly poking fun at Danes’ constant crying. Which was funny, but even funnier is that Blahnik loves Danes and not Anne “Why Isn’t Everyone Looking At Me Someone Look At Me Please” Hathaway.
And guess who else he loves? This might be my favorite part even MORE.
Lara Flynn Boyle in Twin Peaks and that other girl Sherilyn Fenn—they’re old-school girls like Elizabeth Taylor, and I think that’s so fabulous…these girls like Sherilyn Fenn and Lara Flynn Boyle that should be working now instead of these anonymous girls [Seyfried and Hathaway.]
Dude, I love Twin Peaks and I love Sherilyn Fenn, but:
Love you Mr. Blahnik. Your shoes are okay and way overpriced, but you are a treasure and a pure delight.

Some sad news today: we could have been spared Anne Hathway‘s insufferable ego had Scarlett Johansson not bombed her Les Miserables audition. Yes, Ms. Johansson auditioned for the role that Anne “Holy F-ck Aren’t I Amazing?” Hathway won but effed it up and blames it on laryngitis. Yeah, okay Scarlett. You bombed your audition because you had laryngitis. Like the producers and casting directors wouldn’t say, “No problem, let’s try it again when you’re feeling better.” You’re Scarlett Johansson. You get more chances than most actors do. That’s what happens when you’re on the A-list. Perhaps your singing just wasn’t as good as Ms. Hathway’s. I mean, seriously. Seriously. Come on.
Ms. ScarJo is very gracious though and a great sport about losing the role to Anne “Everyone Loves Hearing Me Talk As Much As I Do” Hathway, saying,
I think looking at the film now, there’s no possible way I ever could have topped [her] performance. It was perfect and I think fateful and meant to be. But, yes, the audition itself brought back so many memories of auditioning for Les Miz for the young Cosette, and it was fun for me to revisit that.
Johnasson is currently starring in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof on Broadway. That Liz Taylor is so hot right now.

Helen Mirren is a film legend, so she could show up at an awards show in a paper bag with a mop end for a wig and old KFC buckets for shoes and no one could say shit because she’s doing her and has earned the right to do so. She didn’t quite go that far at last night’s BAFTAs in London, but she did take a popular hair trend to the pensioner set by dyeing her hair a lovely shade of bubblegum pink, an idea she got from… an unlikely source, shall we say.
“I saw it on America’s Next Top Model, so I decided to have a go.”
First of all, I love that Helen Mirren watches America’s Next Top Model – I didn’t realise anyone still did. Second of all, I love that she has such a buck wild spirit that she didn’t think twice about heading to Katy Perry town with her locks. And while it’s a bit unusual, it certainly doesn’t look bad. I wish I could get away with pink hair, but it’s just not happening. Helen’s move was especially risky considering the BAFTAs are full of British people who aren’t really into bullshit and really are into class, fanciness and sexy accents.
In any case, the BAFTAs red carpet was chock full of stars, from Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Ben Affleck to Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Chastain and more. Check out a gallery from last night’s red carpet below:
