Ugh, enough with Anne Hathaway already (again)

Anne Hathaway went away for a long while because she knew we all can’t stand her and wanted to give us a break. Now she’s back, and while this was a chance for her to get back on good terms with the world and not be so annoying, she failed epically when she and husband Adam Shulman decided to take a page from Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield‘s book and punk the paparazzi with a charitable message.

Walking around New York this week, Anne and Adam held up cardboard signs with three websites listed to charities/causes they care about and wishing everyone a Happy 4th of July. They did at least give credit to Emma and Andrew, but the fact that she even decided to do this is just so… Anne. And so obnoxious. I appreciate getting the good message out, which is the only thing I give her vague credit about – there’s never a bad time to spread the word about causes you really care about. But it just seems so contrived and try-hard and… predictable. Copying off of something someone else did that we all found endearing so that she could try and be endearing as well is Anne Hathway’s M.O. and the reason she got such a bad rep in the first place.

Neeeeexxxxttt!

Oh, and here’s how it’s ACTUALLY done:

Is Emma Stone a “bland, basic bitch”?

Emma Stone is one of those love or hate celebrities – though I haven’t met too many people who dislike her. Still, apparently those people exist, as she’s found a number of detractors online who’ve described her as a “bland, basic bitch”. Fair descriptor? Eh, I dunno.

As the new Vogue cover star for May, Emma talked a lot about her resistance to reading Internet commentary about herself to her relationship with Andrew Garfield.

Here are a few choice quotes…

On the public’s perception of her:

She is the rare person in public life who will straight up tell you that yes, she has Googled herself. “I don’t usually like what I find,” she says. “But some of it is really funny.” Stone mentions Internet comments that referred to her as a “Bland Basic Bitch,” which was probably meant as a dig, but she found it hilarious, to the point that at dinner she now begins to refer to herself as “That Bland Basic Bitch.”

On her love life with Garfield:

“I think I’ve learned a lot by being around him,” Stone says of Garfield. “And, you know, he is an incredibly important person to me.”

The feeling is clearly mutual. Garfield sounds grateful that Stone has been at his side during the far-flung Spider-Man journey. “I thank my lucky stars that we’ve been able to be on this ride together,” he says in an e-mail. “We all need companions in the mystery to get you out of your head and into your heart, to moan to and to take the piss out of it all with.”

I ask Stone about filming scenes with Garfield. Is that stuff easy? Harder?

“It’s not harder,” she says. “It’s fun. It’s been fun working with him just because of who he is as an actor and person. I think it would be fun no matter what.”

On her career ambitions:

Stone was ready to make her Broadway debut as Sally in Cabaret—she got the part after auditioning for Sam Mendes in London—but ran into scheduling difficulties with her Spider-Man obligations. She believes she’ll eventually get a chance to play Sally. “Someday,” she pledges. She talks about other theatrical parts, about taking more chances in film. “The thing I gravitate toward naturally is comedy,” Stone says. “But I want to do different things.” Like what? Maybe some “truly bizarre characters,” she says. Maybe she’ll produce. “I would like to see what I can do.”

I dunno, I kinda like her – or at the very least find her pretty innocuous. Plus, she looks FLAWLESS more often than not, so that’s a thumbs up.

What do you think? Love her? Hate her? Meh on her?

Emma Stone Looks Pretty at ‘The Croods’ Berlin Photo Call

Emma Stone turned up in Berlin on Friday for a photocall to promote her new animated film The Croods, which looks like some weird Flintstones rip-off.  I’m not too far off, apparently, as the IMDB synopsis reads: “The world’s very first prehistoric family goes on a road trip to an uncharted and fantastical world.” In any case, Emma and some of her voice co-stars (the cast includes Nicolas Cage, Cloris Leachman and Ryan Reynolds, but only Nic was there from that list) hit the blue backscreen (I don’t see a red carpet) to meet the press leading up to the film’s release.

We like Emma because she seems like a cool, down-to-earth girl (woman) who keeps her personal life – and in paticular, her romance with Spider-Man co-star Andrew Garfield – under wraps. More actresses could take a few notes from her.
