Anne Hathaway: No downside to hosting Oscars

James Franco told Letterman earlier this year that his lackluster Oscars hosting job wasn’t because he was actually high, but because “the Tasmanian Devil would look stoned standing next to Anne Hathaway. She has a lot of energy!"

Hathaway, 28, tells Harper’s Bazaar in the magazine’s August issue that she doesn’t think that’s quite fair.

“How did I take it?” she begins, referring to Franco’s late night commentary. “I let James know that a whirling dervish is a more flattering comparison than a Tasmanian devil. I called him, and we e-mailed a bit.”

Lady Gaga: Wristband lawsuit 'without merit'

Lady Gaga: Wristband lawsuit 'without merit'

A lawsuit alleging that Lady Gaga misrepresented how funds received from sales of her Japanese earthquake relief wristbands would be allocated raised a few eyebrows on Monday, and now Gaga is speaking out against it.

In a statement, the superstar singer – who's visited Tokyo in an effort to boost tourism – called the suit “misguided” and “without merit.”

Attorneys from the Michigan based 1-800-Law-Firm filed a complaint in Michigan last Friday, alleging that Gaga and affiliated companies haven’t been transparent about where donated funds were going. Proceeds from the Gaga-designed wristbands sold were advertised as going solely to relief efforts, which the suit claims is misleading.

Everyone’s a Critic: Less is more

Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat: Watching “Wipeout” is not an intellectual pursuit in which one strives to find deeper symbolism about the meaning of life and the evolution of society vis a vis the physical hardships perpetrated upon a group of well-meaning volunteers seeking fame and fortune.

“Wipeout” is basically an hour of fall-down-go-boom. And that hour is funnier than it has any right to be.

Yes, it is in many ways a rip-off of “Most Extreme Elimination Challenge.” But it’s entertaining, often because of the visceral reaction that we have to seeing people innocuously get hurt. Why do you think “American’s Funniest Home Videos” lasted so long?

Tia Mowry's baby boy is one punctual newborn.

The first-time parents, who have been married for two years, announced their impending arrival back in January, along with the news that the Style network was taping Mowry's pregnancy for a show slated to air later this year.

Tom Hanks thinks a 'Toy Story 4' is in the works

Judging by the success of "Toy Story 3" - hello, Oscar - it wouldn't be a surprise if Pixar's trying to extend the tale of Woody and Buzz Lightyear into another movie.

Although "Toy Story 3" director Lee Unkrich told CNN back in December that there were more animated shorts on the way and not necessarily a sequel, Tom Hanks seems to have heard an update.

The actor, who voices Woody in the family films, told "Showbiz Tonight" at the premiere of his movie "Larry Crowne" on Monday that he believes a fourth installment is already underway.

"I understand it's happening and if it is, I hope they'll hire me [again]," he says. "They have almost every line I've ever said in the hard drive up there at Pixar. So they might not need me! I hope they'll have some unique grunts they're going to need from me so I can get in there and do it."
