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:

No, I know; it wasn’t bad, actually. It was pretty heartfelt, it seemed, and she didn’t even come across as smug and deserving, like I originally said earlier, over the weekend. She came across as breathless, and nervous, and excited, and while I’m not going to go ahead and say that she deserved the award (because can you believe it—I still haven’t seen ‘Les Miserables’ yet), she definitely wasn’t as obnoxious as I thought she might be when I first heard that she’d won.
But hey—don’t go and get any silly ideas, Anne Hathaway. Your SAG award speech wasn’t all that bad, but it doesn’t mean I’m going to go and like you or anything. I just don’t have any thing negative to say this time around, alright? Fair?

Is it me, or are the bad dresses always the most fun? Because personally? I think the bad dresses are always most fun. And you know what’s also kind of fun? That two ‘Big Bang Theory’ stars showed up to the SAGs looking like a basket of beat ass. Well, wait. To be fair, Johnny Galecki (who took the number one worst dressed spot, along with his girlfriend, Kelli Garner) showed up to the SAGs looking like a basket of beat (greasy) ass, while Kaley Cuoco, in the number five slot, looked … well, she looked comical. Cartoonish, even. And also, that big hair of hers makes her head look huge. Coming from someone who has a big head herself, I can tell you: one thing you never want to do is tease your crown, because it’s going to look like … well, that. Yike.
Here’s the rest of the worst dressed!
#4 – Anne Hathaway
#3 – Jane Lynch
#2 – Sigourney Weaver
#1 – Johnny Galecki and his girlfriend, who is not Courtney Love, despite the uncanny resemblance

I’m going to grudgingly admit that I love this dress. I love the colors with her stupid, gorgeous, milky complexion, and I really like the stupid, flattering gladiator heels that she paired with said dress. It’s really, really nice, actually, and I hate myself more than just a little bit for liking it, because Anne Hathaway is so damn smug that she knew that she’d be a hit in this frock, and she’s probably not even self-effacing about it. Bitchface.
Anne Hathaway’s getup—love it or leave it?

Remember how Anne Hathaway used to make fun of Katie Holmes on SNL all the time? Because there’s apparently this back story to it, and the back story isn’t so nice. At least, for Katie Holmes. I’m sure Anne Hathaway is just happier than a pig in shit, because she’s the one who thinks she’s so much better than Katie in every possible way known to man.
Again, National Enquirer, because lately, I think they’re onto something, maybe:
The claws are out between the Batman babes after Anne Hathaway poked fun at Katie Holmes during a November appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”
During hilarious skits on the long-running late-night comedy show, Les Miserables star Anne skewered both Katie AND “Homeland” actress Claire Danes. And although she’s offiically offered a mea culpa to Claire — along with a bouquet of flowers — she’s conspicuously neglected to apologize to Tom Cruise’s ex-wife Katie.
“Anne and Katie are longtime rivals,” disclosed an insider. “Anne puts forth a very genial, friendly image, but she has a wicked competitive streak. She doesn’t like Katie because they used to go up for similar roles. Anne always felt lke Katie used her Hollywood connections through Tom to advance her career. And she constantly makes fun of Katie behind her back, mocking her former marriage and even her appearance.”
Anne also believes she outclassed Katie in their Batman movies. While she was lauded for her performance as Catwoman in The Dark Knight [Rises],” critics panned Katie, 34, for her role as the Caped Crusader’s love interest in Batman Begins.
“Simply put,” said the insider, “There is no love lost between Anne and Katie.” Anne, 30, hosted “SNL” for the third time on Nov. 10, and while she also spoofed Claire’s erratic character on the Showtime series “Homeland,” her mean-spirited mockery of Katie’s smile and mannerisms both infuriated and humiliated the actress.
And that was even Anne’s first roast of Katie — she also mimicked her during a 2010 “SNL” appearance! While Katie was good-natured the first time around, she’s apparently not laughing anymore. “It all comes down to the fact that Anne doesn’t take Katie seriously as an actress,” noted the insider. “And Katie’s gotten Anne’s message loud and clear.”
Ugh, this bitch, guys. This bitch. I don’t even understand why people love her so much. Yeah, OK, so she’s pretty. And she’s got a decent body, I guess. Truth be told, I think she’s a sub par actress, and I don’t even need to see ‘Les Miserables’ to tell you that. I’d rather watch ‘Dawson’s Creek’ and ‘Teaching Mrs. Tingle’ over ‘One Day’ any damn day.
Can’t we just keep it civil for Batman’s sake, guys? Come on.
