Wanna know what and caused a panicked Anne Hathaway to ditch her planned Valentino gown in favor of a Prada creation at the Oscars? Here ya go…
An insider close to the situation tells Us Hathaway learned during an Oscar rehearsal that costar Amanda Seyfried planned to wear a dress notably similar to hers to the ceremony. After Hathaway asked about her pal’s dress, Seyfried graciously shared an iPhone snap of the Alexander McQueen creation.
“Anne was like ‘WTF?!’” the source reports. “She started throwing a fit!” The 30-year-old Best Supporting Actress victor, however, “never told Amanda she had to change the dress.” Still, Seyfried, 27, was ruffled by Hathaway’s tirade. “Amanda didn’t want to deal with it and left” the rehearsal, the source notes.
But, the drama continues…”Anne made the fashion, make up, hair, and jewelry teams wait at her home for hours as she decided what to do about the dress debacle,” a second insider tells Us. The star also “asked for silence so she could rehearse her singing for the Les Mis tribute at the Oscars. It was a painfully long experience.”
Oh my goodness. Anne isn’t winning any more fans this way, is she?

Is Jimmy Kimmel being courted by the Academy to host the Oscars in 2014?
First of all, i’m still pissed about Seth McFarland hosting, and that the Academy isn’t calling the Oscars the Academy Awards anymore. Rebranding, reschmanding! Call it what it IS!
Secondly, looks like Kimmel might be up for next year’s hosting duties. An insider dishes:
“Jimmy is favored to host the Oscars next year; ABC has been pushing him for the role.”
Pretty prestigious! And you know, even though we all want Tina Fey and perhaps Amy Poehler to host, that day won’t be coming anytime soon. Says Fey:
“I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman – the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone… no way.”
Boo! Boo I say! At least Jimmy Kimmel would be a step up from McFarland. Overall, it’s still really early to be speculating about these things, right? But I love it!

Every year, the Oscar SWAG bags are grandiose, indulgent and downright fun. This year, however, it seems as though the contents are especially weird!
The Freebies going home with all of this year’s nominees is valued at a whopping $45,000. Included are the glamorous luxuries one would presume Hollywood’s A-list would covet: $10,000 trips to Australia, skincare products worth hundreds of dollars each, $625 private training sessions, and gourmet chocolates. And, condoms. Yep, condoms!
Mixed in with all of the high-end swag are a slew of utterly bizarre knick-knacks, services, and even cleaning products. Among the weirdest, according to Daily Beast:
-Take 2: Your Guide to Happy Endings and New Beginnings by Leeza Gibbons, a book about “starting over; taking inventory, and getting smarter, stronger, and sexier with no apologies, no regrets and no turning back.” ($24.00)
-A six-pack box of Naked brand condoms ($20.00)
-Maple syrup, from Rouge Maple Gourmet Products ($120.00)
-Portion-control dinnerware by Slimware: “Portion consciousness is disguised in the design.” $59.00
-A Vampire Facelift, a cosmetic procedure that involves re-injecting gel-like substances from the patient’s blood back into the skin of their face to treat wrinkles. ($5,000.00)
-Tickets to the circus, to see “North America’s only all-kid troupe.” ($400)
-Hair ties. But they double as bracelets! ($80.00)
-A lint roller by Gleener, called The Ultimate Fuzz Remover ($19.99)
-Windex touch-up cleaner ($3.99)
That’s not to mention the swanky sweatshirts, emblazoned with the Oscar logo, the contenders were all handed at this year’s Nominees Luncheon.
Man, what I would do for one of those gift bags! I mean, I’m low on Windex, SO….

Woah, I love when people criticize American institutions like The Oscars…especially people who are FAMOUS!
Before Midnight star Ethan Hawke recently expressed his distaste for the way movies are evaluated in America, and called box office gross reports and movie award shows “asinine” and “destructive!” Says the actor:
“People want to turn everything in this country into a competition… [so] it’s clear who the winner is and who the loser is. It’s why they like to announce the grosses of movies, because it’s a way of saying, ‘This one is No. 1.’ It’s so asinine… if you look at how many forgettable, stupid movies have won Oscars and how many mediocre performers have Oscars above their fireplace. Making a priority of chasing these fake carrots and money and dubious accolades, I think it’s really destructive.”
Well said, Ethan! I completely agree. So much money goes into these ceremonies which really don’t have a huge bearing on a film’s merit or quality. We’re glad Hawke has the guts to say something!
How do YOU feel about the Oscars? Do you agree with Hawke?

This has to be one of the strangest video’s I’ve ever seen.
Charlize Theron appeared in a racy April Fools’ Day video for Funny or Die. Accompanied with a brief byline, the text above the Charlize ‘sex tape’ reads ‘Never before seen footage of Charlize Theron’s weird kinky sex tape.’
The “sex tape” shows the Oscar-winner involved in a strange (and un-funny) sex scene. I found the video to be incredibly awkward, and not funny…. at all. Watch the video below.
Meanwhile….Charlize Theron was spotted yesterday taking her new son, Jackson Theron to lunch at the upscale restaurant Bouchon in Beverly Hills.
The Snow White and the Huntsman actress was accompanied by her mother Gerda who has been on hand to help while Charlize has been travelling to promote the film all over the country.
The South African stunner, who confirmed she had adopted a baby boy three weeks ago, has said of the experience: ‘It has been overwhelmingly incredible. Every day there is something new.’

Cameron Diaz did a dress change for the Vanity Fair after-party. Do you like this orange dress better than the off-white dress she wore to the show?

I don’t like her bangs. I might like them more if they didn’t start in the center of her head! Love her dress. Tom Cruise isn’t aging at all. Seriously!
