If Ms. Weiss is reading this, I’d like to educate her on the true reason for the public’s dislike. Hathaway appears inauthentic, insincere, and disingenuous. The public likes authenticity, and that’s why Jennifer Lawrence has become so popular. You cannot fake these things. If you practiced your Oscar speech in front of a mirror your entire life, then it will appear canned — as it did. Furthermore, who on earth would think it’s okay to utter something as pretentious as “Here’s hoping that someday in the not too distant future the misfortunes of Fantine will only be found in stories and never in real life.”
The very funny Whitney Cummings once told Howard Stern how annoying it is that actors think they’re funny just because they can read lines written by comedians. Judging by the new promos for this year’s Oscars, Whitney’s got a point. I have absolutely no clue why the Academy thought hiring two non-comedic actors to host an awards show would be a good idea, especially since even the greatest comedian has trouble keeping the audience entertained. Watch the extremely unfunny promo below, and try not to fall asleep.
After seeing Anne Hathaway naked for most of this movie, I have two things to say. First, she needs to stop doing interviews about how she’s unnattractive. Second, if you’re wondering how to properly execute nudity in a movie without it feeling forced and gratuitous, then go see Love And Other Drugs — because Edward Zwick (the director) pulls it off masterfully. The movie is about Maggie (Anne Hathaway) and Jamie (Jake Gyllenhaal), who accidentally fall into a relationship after fighting very hard against it. Maggie has early onset Parkinson’s, and she’s afraid Jamie will eventually realize he can’t handle it and dump her. Her solution is to dump him first. Sounds like most women I know (minus the Parkinson’s). Jamie is a womanizer whose affection for Maggie starts with sex and ends with love. This movie survives solely on the insane chemistry between Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal. This is their second movie together, and I recommend they become a new, romantic team, much like Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn. Good chemistry is hard to come-by, and so are good love stories. So go see the film.
