    And, of course, I checked it out.

    Obviously, she has no one around her that really cares enough about her to tell her the truth about what she looks like. A true friend or loved one would NEVER let someone they cared for/loved walk out the door and show themselves in public like that.
    She wouldn't care ness. She loves the attention , that's why she wore the dress that barely covered her breasts, and was slit up to there.

But when she was being interviewed, I was looking and realized it was a REALLY bad design choice in the dress. Dior would have been blasted on Project Runway for that design decision!
    Hathaway was supposed to wear Valentino but she thought it looked too similar to Amanda Seyfried's McQueen dress so she switched to a Prada dress. I don't think the Prada dress was horrible just rather plain. And badly matched with the necklace. It kind of makes me sad to think of her practicing her speech to make her come off as more likeable.

    Did anyone see the dress that Jennifer Lawrence wore to the after-parties? Now that was a gorgeous dress.

    True, FM.

    Too, too true.

    Barely covered her breasts, though?

    Kinda looked to me like it almost barely covered her nipples!

It was supposed to be this heartfelt, tender answer, but it sounded completely phony.
    The hilarious thing is that she is an actress who can't convince people she isn't a phony. yet she won an Oscar. Her speeches are too rehearsed as are the interviews I've seen. I never trust people who try to convince me that they are a certain way. Just because you say it over and over and over again does not mean I will believe you.

    JLaw doesn't have a filter, nor take herself very seriously. She may be the "IT" girl right now, but she's gonna spew out something outrageous and people are gonna freak out. The tides may turn against her but if she is smart, she'll continue on as she has and not give a flying fig. Nor be apologetic. She also seems to realize that you can't please everyone, so take your chances and be yourself. Most will accept that.

    I have always gotten an odd vibe from Anne Hathaway. Even as an adult, she always seemed like the shy, misfit, in school who other children found as odd. She reminds of a unconfident girl who may have been picked on by her peers to the point that she just tries to say what she thinks others want to hear to be accepted. That's my take on her. Some people don't have interesting or charming personalities, so they try to make one up.

    Re: Academy Awards 2013

    I read something this week that compared Anne Hathaway to a real-life Rachel Barry (from Glee). I had never thought of her in those terms, but when I read it, it clicked immediately. I can't say I dislike her. I've just never really been drawn to her. I think that she shows just how difficult it is to maintain celebrity status. She does have great talent. I would not put her in a category of "no one can do it but her" like I would Adele or Meryl Streep. But I also would not put her in a category of "she doens't have much talent, so she has to sell her personal life" like I would Jennifer Anniston. As an actress, she has to push that talent and promote herself. Truly, her business is promoting herself as a product. When she promotes her talent, she risks coming across as conceited. But if she backs off and doesn't push it, then she risks being passed over for other actresses. She has to navigate tough waters. She doesn't do it perfectly, but she does it well enough to keep on getting hired, and deserving to.

    So . . .

    He's not gonna do the Oscars again, huh?

    Fine by me.

    He was the major reason I almost checked out before the first hour was even over.

    Has anyone seen some of the older actresses around lately? I'm referring to those such as: Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts, Gwyneth Paltrow, etc. Have they been totally pushed out?

    I'm sure Gwyneth Paltrow - who's only 40, btw - would be horrified to be called an "older actress."

    All of the actresses you named have young children and they're more established. They're more able to pick and choose now. Frankly though, Meg Ryan hasn't done what I would consider good work in a very long time. She's not really in the same category as the Oscar nominees, young and old.
