James Franco and Anne Hathaway are hosting this year's Oscars, which could lead to at least one very awkward moment as Franco is our pick to win Best Actor for his role in Danny Boyle's 127 Hours.
Johnny Depp tells Patti Smith that his interpretation of Captain Jack Sparrow was initially hated by Disney. CEO Michael Eisner said, "He's ruining the movie," while other execs wondered, "What's wrong with him? Is he, you know, like some kind of weird simpleton? Is he drunk? By the way, is he gay?"
Depp, of course, based his characterization of Sparrow on Rolling Stones' legendary guitarist Keith Richards. And it appears Brad Pitt may be basing his red carpet appearances on Richards — or perhaps Russell Brand — as he hit the French Megamind premiere in a pair of skinny leather pants.
Lindsay Lohan has asked her attorney to file a restraining order against the paparazzi because they've forced the Betty Ford clinic to keep her car keys, citing the photogs as creating an unsafe driving situation every time she gets behind the wheel.
