James Franco and Anne Hathaway were some of the worst hosts in Academy Award history – at least James was. Critics did not hold back and Anne and James had a fallout due to his halfbaked performance. James appeared on Howard Stern yesterday where they talked about why so many people hate Anne.
Stern explained: “She’s just so affected [and] actress-y that even when she wins an award she’s out of breath, and then she has the standard joke that sounds like it’s [been] written [for her]. And it all seems so scripted and acted.”
Dave Franco‘s brother said: “Anne and I made up, by the way. Let’s just get that on the record. It was a really hard time after the Oscars. She wasn’t mad at me, I don’t think . . . she didn’t say she was mad at me for what happened . . . The critics were so nasty.”
He also talks about turning down Lindsay Lohan‘s advances because she’s damaged/ has “issues.”
“I don’t want to like brag about it.I don’t know how that got out. She was having issues even then, so you feel weird. Honestly, she was a friend. I’ve met a lot of people that are troubled and sometimes you don’t want to do that.”
Howard always has the best interviews!! I’m not an Anne Hathaway hater. I don’t like how she quickly distanced herself from her convict ex-boyfriend once he got caught, but I just don’t care enough about her to hate her. LOL at James’ Lindsay comments. Avi Snow should have stayed away.
Brandi Glanville's new book Drinking & Tweeting has been released and if you think that Glanville's book excerpts were scandalous, check out what she had to say on Howard Stern. I listened to Brandi's entire interview yesterday and I encourage you to do the same, we've posted the entire interview below. Naturally this is NSFW.
Among the gems in this exclusive, Brandi says her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars make $250,000 per season, "they are just cunts," and although she's hooked up with many chicks she's "never been with a girl without a guy. I mean, I really love c**k." Brandi also goes in depth about Eddie giving her HPV, LeAnn Rimes and so much more. Trust.
After Howard Stern objected to Lena Dunham nude scenes on Girls, he actually apologized for saying “It’s a little fat girl who kinda looks like Jonah Hill and she keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like rape. She seems — it’s like — I don’t want to see that."
Howard argued that his quotes were taken out of context and no one mentioned that he said that he's a fan of Girls and Lena's. Howard said that he'd like to have Dunham on the show, so on Monday Lena actually called in.
He began his personal apology to Lena with:
“I don’t even know where to begin with all of this. The reason I felt so awful was because when Perez Hilton wrote his article, he told half the story. …I started to compare you to Woody Allen … the whole thing came together for me.”
The booty kissing from Howard continued: “I realize: Not only am I addicted, but I totally get you… I’m in love with you and your character… I guess I just wanted to tell you I love you and I think you’re terrific.”
Lena responded with:
“I’m not that fat, Howard. I don’t mean to take major issue with you about this. I’m not super thin, but I’m thin for, like, Detroit.”
Howard told Lena: "You're not obese or anything." And Jack Antonoff's girlfriend said: “Thank you. Another thing for my gravestone. Howard Stern says, ‘You’re not obese or anything.’”
What Lena said is hilarious. Go out and get the last laugh!
This is rare. Howard Stern enjoys giving harsh, unfiltered commentary on whatever he pleases and he makes no apologies for it. But when an excerpt from his show surfaced, in which he refers to Lena Dunham as a "fat chick" who looks like Jonah Hill, Stern decided to say he's sorry.
Stern said: "[Lena] keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like a rape. She seems—it’s like—I don’t want to see that."
Good for Howard. He was actually humbled and embarrassed by something he said?!
Howard Stern doesn’t get it. Lena Dunham is nude because she isn’t thin and doesn’t look like the skinny celebrities who are typically the ones who do nude or topless scenes. Howard Stern recently caught some episodes of season 1 and he shared his thoughts on Lena’s body with his audience.
“It’s a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill and she keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like a rape. She seems—it’s like—I don’t want to see that. She thinks she’s brave. Brave? I’m brave! I’m lookin’ at her!”
LOL. I love Howard. When I see Lena naked I feel more awesome about myself… so she really is good for women of all shapes and sizes! You’re either like ‘Damn, I’m a hot b!tch!’ after seeing Lena nude or you’re like ‘Damn, I may be fat but at least I have boobs’ after seeing Lena topless photos. It’s a win win.
Howard went on to say that Lena’s a “camera hog” and that if he was a producer he would tell her: “Honey, you’re a little too close to the project. You need to allow the other characters to breathe a little and let us get invested in them… Good for her. It’s hard for little fat chicks to get anything going.”
Dunham responded to the comments on Letterman saying she wants “It’s hard for little fat chicks to get anything” to be on her tombstone.
Russell Brand appeared on Howard Stern’s show earlier this week to promote his FX last night show Brand X, but naturally Stern wanted to talk about his divorce with Katy Perry. Russell pretty much confirms the rumors that suggested that the couple split because he wanted to make babies now and Katy wanted to wait. Brand said he “was really into the idea of marriage and having children.”
He also said that he’s enjoying his freedom and he is dating Jordanna Brewster’s younger sister Isabella.
Katy’s ex explained: “I loved her so much, it just seemed like the sensible thing to do [when we got married] … I just loved her so much… This isn’t really working out, it’s a difficult situation … I was really, really in love with her, but it was difficult to see each other … We were together when it was right to be together, and when it wasn’t we worked it out … It was a lovely relationship … it mostly didn’t work for practical reasons … We did work it out, she’s happy, I’m happy.”
On having sex after marriage: “If you’ve been on a diet of rice for a while and suddenly Willy Wonka asked you to take over the factory, you’d be kicking over barrels of candy and swimming in a chocolate river.”
On Katy’s “Wide Awake” song: When Stern began dissecting the lyrics, citing the lines “I was in the dark … I was falling hard … how did I read the stars so wrong,” Brand got audibly uncomfortable. “That could be about anything … horoscopes, astronomy,” Brand joked. Citing the lines, “Now it’s clear to me/ that everything you see/ ain’t always what it seems,” Stern kept at it, suggesting that Perry was revealing her real feelings on the break. “Your interpretation sounds somewhat arbitrary,” Brand said. “She’s a young woman dealing with the breakup of a relationship … which is understandable. It’s a nice song.”
Apparently, someone forgot to teach Nadya Suleman the first rule of being a hooker: never give it away for free! Octomom went on Howard Stern’s radio show yesterday to promote her “solo porn” video, and the King of All Media convinced the Queen of Awful Mothers to ride a sybian machine and loudly orgasm for his audience. For free!
Oh, Octo, no one’s gonna pay to see you pleasure yourself when you’re doing it pro bono on satellite radio! Also, when people are listening to you orgasm on their morning ride into work, it’s time to seriously re-examine your life decisions.
For those who don’t know what a sybian machine is (Howard is here to educate) or just want to watch a mother of 14 show off her fake “O face” check out the clip above. It’s funny until you remember that one day her kids will be old enough to Google this stuff.
One thing you can't say about Howard Stern is that he isn't honest. Howard's season premiere of America's Got Talent airs this Monday and he's doing the rounds with the media in support of his new gig. Britney Spears is an official judge on The X Factor and Stern thinks it's ridiculous!
At a press conference today, the shock jock said: "I think it’s a wonderful decision. Britney still thinks the earth is flat."
He said that she will pull in the ratings though! "I can't imagine… I think we’re going to tune in to see her, to see if she can function through the thing." He said that Simon Cowell and LA Reid will be giving actual critiques while Spears "will sit there and eat a lollipop and wear a sexy outfit."
Sounds about right!
When asked if he'll watch Brit Brit on the show he said: "I'll tune in to see what kind of trainwreck she is, absolutely,"
