Justin Timberlake: I'm not a jerk

Maybe it's no coincidence that Justin Timberlake was cast as cocky Napster founder Sean Parker in "The Social Network": The singer-turned-actor tells the March issue of Interview magazine that most members of the movie industry assume he's just an arrogant pop star.

"What’s been more of a battle for me throughout the process of moving into acting is that I feel like I have to keep reassuring people that I’m not an a—hole," says Timberlake, who interviews actress Amanda Seyfried in the magazine. "There is a stigma that comes from being on stage and being a musician."

That's not to say that being in the music business is any easier.

Franco, Hathaway on what to expect at the Oscars

Don't expect any Ricky Gervais-style jokes when Anne Hathaway and James Franco host the Academy Awards on Sunday.

"I can guarantee that if you’re looking for someone to call people out, we’re not your hosts," Hathaway, who is collaborating on jokes with the show's writers, told the Hollywood Reporter.

"I think that humor is really difficult to pull off, and I’m not particularly adept at it," she continued. "I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it. Also, I don’t mean to sound overly serious, but I am the youngest host in history and I have no business being cynical or calling anyone out. I certainly haven’t earned the right to do that."

'Parenthood': Don't sleep with your autistic nephew's therapist

The title of this episode is an example of one of the many reasons I like this show; it gets straight to the point.

Crosby manages to have a negative effect on a bunch of people, all because he was feeling sorry for himself and decided to spend the night with Max's therapist, Gaby. He does the walk of shame out of her apartment the Morning After. He’s about to find out it’s not going to be that easy to walk away from what he did.

Jasmine shows up at Adam and Kristina's while Gaby is working with Max. Gaby overhears Jasmine telling Kristina about her problems with Crosby. She's so guilty and distracted she can't concentrate.

Lynda Carter hopes new Wonder Woman 'kicks butt'

It didn't take the golden lasso of truth to get Lynda Carter to share her thoughts on Adrianne Palicki being cast as the new Wonder Woman.

In an interview with the Baltimore Sun, Carter — who played the Amazing Amazon in the popular '70s TV series — sounds off about David E. Kelley's upcoming NBC reboot.

"I know she is going to be really nervous about it, just because you would be," Carter says of Palicki, adding, "I would never offer her any advice. Nor would she probably want any. If she wants to talk to me, that would be a whole different thing. But I would never offer, 'Now let me tell you how to do this.' She's an actress and she's a good actress and she's beautiful, and I hope she kicks butt."
