James Franco talked to Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show about Anne Hathaway and her legion of “Hatha-haters” (people devoted to hating her guts):
“We haven’t talked in a while. 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.”
And he also cleared up the rumors about turning down Lindsay Lohan:
“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.”
Ann Curry was supposedly forbidden by NBC to send any warm wishes to GMA anchor Robin Roberts during her illness that could be seen by the public.

Hugh Hefner took a wild guess when talking to Esquire about how many women he’s slept with in his life:
“How could I possibly know? Over a thousand, I’m sure. There were chunks of my life when I was married, and when I was married I never cheated. But I made up for it when I wasn’t married. You have to keep your hand in.”
Jared Leto shared a graphic photo of the severed ear a fan sent him in the mail.
Matthew Knowles broke his silence on his falling-out with Beyoncé:
“Normally I hate to talk about anything personal, but it would be a lie if I did not say it has been difficult. It was hard for me to let her go — it was hard for both of us to let each other go. And let’s be clear on that. She didn’t let me go, we both let each other go. That’s a big difference. This was not a normal ending of a business agreement, this was a dad and a daughter and it was incredibly painful and it had some difficulties. But I try to always have a positive mind about things and you got to do it the right way.”
