Anne Hathaway is distracting. Just leave it at that.

Well played, sir.

Paddy O said...

The Tasmanian Devil would look attractive standing next to Anne Hathaway too.

Anne played that effervescent self in the movie 'In Love and Other Drugs' (2010).. She was paired with Jake Gyllenhaal from Donny Darko.

There was no chemistry.

Titus said...

He's totally hot.

He kept looking at his watch. That's how much he wanted to be there.

Dumb as a box of rocks.

Paddy O said...

I didn't watch the oscars, but from what it sounds like he basically acted like his character from Freaks and Geeks.

That was a great show. One of the early signs that Jeff Zucker was going to kill NBC was his decision to cancel Freaks and Geeks.

Titus said...

I love Freaks and Geeks-reruns on IFC!

He wreaks of sex.

Beth said...

First he blamed the writer. Sad to see him continue this little dance of avoidance. He should have been as artful for those few hours on stage.

Freeman Hunt said...

Paddy O., you think Hathaway is unattractive?

I would suggest that few guys would consider her unattractive. That is just the way that we are wired. But, from my point of view, I find her mouth much too wide for my tastes.

That is not to say that I don't like her as an actress, because I really do. She has the sort of presence that I don't see in that many other actresses of her generation. I would suggest that I like her as an actress despite her looks, and not because of them. And, maybe an actress too good looking might distract from her ability to get the audience to identify with her.

Freeman Hunt said...

Bruce, that's a good point. Actors should have compelling, not necessarily attractive, faces.

Despite that though, I think she's very pretty.

TWM said...

She looks like an alien to me. Not the kind from Mexico, you know, the big-eyed, big teethed ones from outer space. Nice rack though.

TMink said...

I actually prefer big mouths. In the literal meaning of the phrase.

Paddy O said...

Freeman, yeah.

It's a bit what Bruce said. She has the illusion, to me, of being attractive but whenever I see a close up shot, not only her mouth but all her features are way too large for her head.

She's someone we're obviously supposed to find attractive but I know a fair amount of other guys who feel the same way I do.

She has definitely has a classic, even glamorous, look from a distance but those close-ups... I know so, so many other women who are more consistently attractive than she is.

Paddy O said...

"I would suggest that I like her as an actress despite her looks, and not because of them."

This is a great way of putting it. In this I put Hathaway in the same category as Julia Roberts. Not really attractive but with a presence and personality that compels interest.

My frustration is that we're told by the media or movies that we must find these attractive, meaning they're billed as these great beauties. Like the scene in Ocean's 11, where Matt Damon is talking about Julia Roberts coming down the stairs. "The best part of my day." Really? Just by seeing her? That's hyping her beauty in the script when reality just doesn't agree. Hathaway has this same basic approach from hollywood media.

So, I think my response to her gets a little amplified because I feel like I'm told to find her attractive, but just don't.

E.M. Davis said...

Yeah, everything is just too big and overwhelming. Although she seems a really good sport and a nice person. I also enjoy Franco, but I'll admit he was quite awful on the Oscars.

As for Hathaway, I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers.

Just sayin'.

MayBee said...

My boys think Hathaway is HOT.

I can't help but love Franco, but he looked stoned even in Eat, Pray, Love and I don't see why the Oscar producers thought he'd have any other appearance on their show.

Joe said...

Proof of the lack of imagination in entertainment is the inability to move beyond the proven boring format of the Oscars (and other shows.)

A host makes sense only if they actually host. The notion of a host introducing temporary hosts is nonsensical.

At the very least, why not just have someone offstage announce each award giver?
Or bag the entire aware giver crap since the banter is usually fake.
