With the deadline for Academy Award nominations just two days away, perhaps it's not the best time for Jennifer Lawrence to be talking about how acting is "stupid." But that's what she does in the new issue of Vanity Fair. more »
Amanda Seyfried had fun on the set of Les Misérables. In a photo feature shoot with Vanity Fair.com, the actress, who plays adopted daughter Cosette to Hugh Jackman's Valjean, talks about how she and her co-star invented "alternative story lines that transformed their characters' tender relationship into something altogether less innocent," according to the website. more »
James Bond is not going all emo on us. In a new Vanity Fair cover story on 007 actor Daniel Craig, the actor defends the tear his character shed over the death of the girlfriend who betrayed him, and says Bond is not getting soft. “He didn’t sob.

Let's see, what day is it? Jan. 31? Oh, then it must be time for everyone to fulminate over the Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue, specifically its lack of diversity among the featured cover stars. It's a seasonal ritual almost as inviolable as Groundhog Day, with equally severe implications of who made the cover (and where). To wit, a lot of white chicks. Cue six more weeks of winter! At least in the grocery checkout aisle, anyway.
Photoshoot homages are a dime a dozen at this point, and it's hard to separate one starlet's Breakfast at Tiffany's tribute from any of the hundreds of others. That's why Lady Gaga's new cover shoot for Vanity Fair, in which she toasts My Fair Lady and Funny Girl, is so ideal: Unlike most celebrities, she can take iconic images, juxtapose them with her own persona, and make them mean something new. She's not just aping Barbra Streisand's pucker like Jennifer Aniston, she's relating a muse to herself, and that's impressive even in a bombastic Annie Leibovitz shoot like this one. It's what really makes her the new Madonna, not sheer popularity. Photos after the jump.
