Josh Hartnett got in on the pre-Oscars parties when he dropped by the Vanity Fair and Fiat party benefiting the United Nations International Labour Organization in LA last night. The star-studded event, which was hosted by Ron Howard and composer Hans Zimmer, also included Lake Bell, Alyssa Milano, and Adrien Brody as guests. Josh had a busy evening, as he also visited the Hollywood Domino and Bovet 1822 event in West Hollywood. Alyssa — who wore Gucci to last night's event — will likely have a lot more Academy Awards-related events to attend this weekend, since her husband, David Bugliari, reps Bradley Cooper, who is nominated for best actor. Bradley has a lot of events on his plate this week, including Wednesday night's Vanity Fair dinner for Silver Linings Playbook, which he attended alongside costar Jennifer Lawrence and director David O. Russell. Don't forget to join us for our LIVE Oscars viewing party and red carpet coverage on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 5:30 p.m. EST/2:30 p.m. PST.
Anne Hathaway shared laughs and drinks with her Les Misérables costars at a special pre-Oscars bash in LA last night. She donned a Theyskens' Theory minidress as she celebrated with a Dior-wearing Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, and Isla Fisher, who attended the shindig with her husband, Sacha Baron Cohen. The Les Misérables fete supported the Los Angeles Fund For Public Education, and drew other celebrities like Adrien Brody and Judy Greer. The celebration wasn't to be confused with the separate Vanity Fair party for Silver Linings Playbook, which also benefited education in LA and was held on the same night.
The pre-Oscars parties are just getting started, and the casts of both films will have plenty of chances to celebrate before Oscar night on Sunday, Feb. 24. Don't forget to fill out our Oscar ballot for a chance to win $1,000 and an iPad.
Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper celebrated their film Silver Linings Playbook with a special Vanity Fair dinner party in LA last night. Jennifer wore a Roland Mouret frock as she mingled with Bradley and Harvey Weinstein. Bradley chatted with costar Chris Tucker and director David O. Russell, as well as David's son, Matthew, whose struggle with mental illness inspired the film.
The party wasn't just about award season, as it also benefited the Glenholme School, a boarding school for children with special needs. Another event Vanity Fair threw for the cast of Les Misérables yesterday also benefited Glenholme. Jennifer and Bradley have a lot to look forward to this weekend — they are both up for Oscars and Independent Spirit Awards. The Spirit Awards will take place in LA on Saturday while the Oscars will air on Sunday, Feb. 24.

Jennifer Lawrence posed for photographer Ellen von Unwerth for the cover of Vanity Fair's February issue. Inside the pages, she showed skin in a crop top and talked about her acting career. Jennifer's been working on Catching Fire in Hawaii recently while her current film, Silver Linings Playbook, continues to get rave reviews and award season buzz. She'll switch gears to the small screen later this month, though, when she hosts Saturday Night Live. Here's more from Jennifer Lawrence in Vanity Fair:
- On having a bow and arrow at home: "One time I actually used it for defense. I pulled into my garage and I heard men in my house. And I was like, 'I'm not letting them take my stuff.' I had just gotten back from training, so I had the bow and arrows in the back of my car. I went to my car and I put this quiver on me and I had my bow and I loaded it and I'm walking up the stairs. And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, 'Heyyy, how you doin'?'"
- On acting: "Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid. Everybody's like, 'How can you remain with a level head?' And I'm like, 'Why would I ever get cocky? I'm not saving anybody's life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I'm making movies. It's stupid.'"
- On meeting her idols: "Once I'm obsessed with somebody, I'm terrified of them instantly. I'm not scared of them — I'm scared of me and how I will react. Like, for instance, one time someone was introducing me to Bill Maher, and I saw Meryl Streep walk into the room, and I just stared at Meryl Streep. I just creepily stared at her."
"I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go and work with Marky Mark and Herb Ritts," Moss says in the December issue of Vanity Fair. "It didn't feel like me at all. I felt really bad straddling this buff guy. I didn't like it. I couldn't get out of bed for two weeks. I thought I was going to die. I went to the doctor and he said, 'I'll give you some Valium,' and Francesca Sorrenti [Moss's friend and mother of Mario Sorrenti], thank God, said, 'You're not taking that.'"
Elsewhere in the interview, Moss discusses her discomfort with posing nude for Corinne Day — the photographer who discovered her – the "years and years of crying" she suffered after breaking up with Johnny Depp, and the mental anguish she dealt with in her first years as a model.
"It was just anxiety. Nobody takes care of you mentally. There's a massive pressure to do what you have to do. I was really little, and I was going to work with Steven Meisel. It was just really weird — a stretch limo coming to pick you up from work. I didn't like it. But it was work, and I had to do it."

Kate Moss covers the December issue of Vanity Fair in a picture shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. She also did an interview with the publication, and touched on a number of topics the normally private supermodel shies away from. Kate spoke about her start in modeling, including being credited with starting the "heroin-chic" look. Kate talked about her split from Johnny Depp and what her life is like now, and she also hilariously defines for everyone what it means to get "Mossed." Here are highlights from Kate Moss in Vanity Fair
- On being responsible for the "heroin-chic" look of the '90s: "I had never even taken heroin — it was nothing to do with me at all. I think [photographer Corinne Day], she wasn't on heroin but always loved that Lou Reed song, that whole glamorizing the squat, white-and-black and sparse and thin, and girls with dark eyes. She loved that look. I was thin, but that's because I was doing shows, working really hard. At that time, I was staying at a B and B in Milan, and you'd get home from work and there was no food. You'd get to work in the morning, there was no food. Nobody took you out for lunch when I started. Carla Bruni took me out for lunch once. She was really nice. Otherwise, you don't get fed. But I was never anorexic. They knew it wasn't true — otherwise I wouldn't be able to work."
- On her romance with Johnny: "There's nobody that's ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said. Like if I said, 'What do I do?,' he'd tell me. And that's what I missed when I left. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!"
- Defining "Mossed": "People that don't know me get Mossed. It means, I was gonna go home, but then I just got led astray. In the best possible way, of course. I mean, it's always fun, and a good time."
- On her newfound stability: "I don't really go to clubs anymore. I'm actually quite settled. Living in Highgate with my dog and my husband and my daughter! I'm not a hell-raiser. But don't burst the bubble. Behind closed doors, for sure I'm a hell-raiser."
Daniel Craig's bright blue eyes pop off the November cover of Vanity Fair, which is available on newsstands Oct. 9. Inside the magazine, Daniel chats about his latest turn as the world's most famous secret agent, James Bond. Daniel plays opposite Javier Bardem in Nov. 9's Skyfall. Daniel didn't open up about real-life leading lady, his wife of one year, Rachel Weisz, though he did touch on the controversy surrounding the decision to substitute James's drink of choice, a martini — shaken not stirred, for a Heineken. Here's more from Daniel:
- Daniel on protecting the Bond franchise: "What I'm doing is not what Pierce [Brosnan] was doing, and Pierce wasn't doing what Roger Moore was doing, or what Sean [Connery] was doing, or what Timothy [Dalton] was doing. Things have changed. It's just kind of the ride of it. Pierce used to say that it's like being responsible for a small country. It's kind of like you have to look after it diplomatically. I kind of get that, but I can't really say that's my deal. I'm not going to be the poster boy for this. Although I am the poster boy."
- Daniel on living life as James Bond: "It's amazing how many times I've sat in interviews like this in a bar or a hotel, and it's 11 o'clock in the morning and someone sends a martini over. And it's like, Really? It's 11 o'clock! Cheers! I'm not going to drink it."
- Daniel on Bond's new drink of choice: "Product placement, whichever way you look at it, whether you like it or you think it's disgusting, or whatever, it's what it is. Heineken gave us a ton of money for there to be Heineken in a shot in a bar. So, how easy is that? Just to say, OK, there's Heineken. It's there — it's in the back of the shot. Without them, the movie couldn't get sold, so that all got kind of blown up. 'Bond's new drink is a Heineken.' He likes a lot of drinks — Heineken, Champagne; it's all in there. I'll drink a beer in the shot, I'm happy to, but I'm not going to do an 'Ahhhhh' [pantomiming an actor looking refreshed]. And I would say this because they're paying, but they're kind of respectful about it. They don't want to screw the movie up."
