Vanity Fair's annual Hollywood Issue is full of some of the town's A-list, with Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, and James Franco on the forefront of the cover. The special fold-out section features more celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Anthony Mackie, Olivia Wilde, Jesse Eisenberg, Mila Kunis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, Garrett Hedlund, and Noomi Rapace. The shoot, which took place in December, actually gave Oscars hosts Anne and James a chance to meet. When asked how it was possible that they'd never crossed paths, Anne said in the accompanying behind-the-scenes video, "I don't know! Well, he's always in school and I don't go to any of the schools that he goes to." Inception leading man Joseph, meanwhile, weighed in on the accumulated star power and commented, "Everyone was really cool. I don't know how many of us there were, like ten people, and everyone was really smart and sweet and I met a bunch of people for the first time. I was actually surprised. Everyone was so nice!" The issue hits newsstands nationwide on Feb. 8, but before then check out the magazine's firsthand account of the scene and see the pictures close up when you click below!
