Maybe you love Anne Hathaway's orthodontia-brochure smile. Maybe you loathe the way she cradled her Supporting Actress Oscar like an enfant and cooed, "It came true!" Maybe you don't have any opinion on Anne Hathaway one way or the other because you have your own life to live and she's probably just a hologram created by the unemployed visual effects crew from Life of Pi anyway. In any case, it might surprise you to learn that Anne Hathaway, of the straight-toothed Hathaways, got really pissed off at Les Miserablululululuss screen-progeny Amanda Seyfried just days before the Academy Awards for planning to wear a gown eerily similar to her own.
Anne Hathaway, as we all know, was all set to accept her Oscar in a Valentino gown. That is, until Amanda Seyfried, just a day before the Academy Awards, showed Anne Hathaway a picture of her own gown and Anne panicked, realizing that the two gowns were far too similar. So, according to the shadowy sources that mill around backstage at Academy Awards dress rehearsals, a tiff ensued:
"Anne was like 'WTF?!'" the source reports. "She started throwing a fit!" The 30-year-old Best Supporting Actress victor, however, "never told Amanda she had to change the dress." Still, Seyfried, 27, was ruffled by Hathaway's tirade. "Amanda didn't want to deal with it and left" the rehearsal, the source notes.
But the drama didn't end there — spilling into Oscars Sunday, as Hathaway fretted over the switch-up with her glam squad at home. "Anne made the fashion, make up, hair, and jewelry teams wait at her home for hours as she decided what to do about the dress debacle," a second insider tells Us. The star also "asked for silence so she could rehearse her singing for the Les Mis tribute at the Oscars. It was a painfully long experience."

Actress Siobhan Finneran, whom most of you probably know as Sarah O'Brien, the icicle-eyed wraith stalking the halls of Downton Abbey, has announced that she will be leaving the series. No word yet on how the show will fill the vacuum of evil left by Finneran's departure, but this seems like a really good opportunity for O'Brien to finally get her comeuppance by way of some grisly exposition at the beginning of Season Four: "Ah, it's very sad," Mr. Carson might tell Downton's staff, "about Mrs. O'Brien. She fell asleep in India and was eaten alive by Bengal tigers." [HuffPo]

Lil Poopy, the diminutive lyricist future classics professors will discourse at length on when teaching students about the decadence of the late North American Empire, has been forsaken by his rap mentor French Montana. Maybe it's for the best, though, that the nine-year-old Poopy is no longer officially or unofficially affiliated with Cocaine City Records. [Atlantic Wire]
