Imagine what celebrities go through when fans run into them. I’m pretty sure being approached by random strangers gets annoying real fast. I know I get rattled a bit when someone I don’t recognize comes up to me . It’s virtually impossible to be personable 24/7.

During the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, Vanity Fair asked several celebs what their fans say to them when they recognize them on the street. They get everything from “You’re famous . . . who are you again?” to being called the completely wrong name. In the clip, Jennifer Connelly and Keira Knightley confess they’ve been mistaken for Demi Moore and Anne Hathaway respectively.

Check out below what Reese Witherspoon, Channing Tatum, Jake Gyllenhaal and others shared with the publication. Gyllenhaal’s is one of my favorites: “We don’t wanna talk to you, we just wanna take a picture with you.” That’s totally something I would say ;)

The Stenmark twins hail from Australia but they’re clearly team Italy for a new World Cup editorial. I guess supporting another nation is only natural given the spread appears in Vanity Fair Italia. Jordan and Zac are joined by Kristina Romanova for a Stewart Shining-photographed shoot. Check out the twins sporting their chiseled torsos in several photos below. I give them a yellow card for being too damn hot ;)

If I could crash only one Oscar party, it’d be a tough choice between Elton John’s gala or Vanity Fair’s shindig. There’s plenty of star power at each event and no doubt tasty eats and delicious cocktails. However, after checking out Vanity Fair’s Instagram account, I’m leaning towards theirs.

Several attendees posed for the publication’s photobooth under the watchful eye of photographer Mark Seliger. Donatella Versace posed with her latest celeb ambassadors, Lady Gaga and Nolan Gerard Funk, for a stunning photo that could easily pass for an official campaign pic. Other standouts include Selena Gomez, Naomi Watts, Neil Patrick Harris and of course, the queen of the night, Miss Lupita Nyong’o. Check out a few below.

2014-vanity-fair-hollywood-issue-preview

Year in, year out Vanity Fair receives criticism for their seemingly lily-white Hollywood Issue covers. While I’m sure they’ll still receive a little flack, their 2014 cover is their most inclusive yet. It has the same amount of white and black actors, along with being split evenly among gender lines. To boot, two actors of color appear on the main portion, instead of being relegated to the fold out. It’s also a good mix of established veterans and rising up-and-comers.

Once again, famed photographer Annie Leibovitz snapped the cover. I’m glad the publication returned back to its traditional format and ditched last year’s yearbook-inspired layout. The glamor is back. Check out the full pic of this year’s cover below along with previous covers.

People magazine’s reigning “Sexiest Man Alive” is officially a DILF ya’ll. Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum welcomed their first child, daughter Everly, just a few days ago. Congratulations to the new parents.

In anticipation of his impending fatherhood, the 33-year-old actor sat down with Vanity Fair for their July 2013 issue to discuss his father and his parenting skills and why he won’t medicate his own children if they have any learning disabilities. And in a seemingly unrelated random topic, Channing talks about Justin Bieber. Check out his thoughts on the “Boyfriend” singer below, along with photos captured by Bruce Weber at One Gun Ranch in Malibu California. If you’re an animal lover and wanna see Tatum wear chaps and ride horseback, you’ll enjoy the video.

On Being A New Father

“I don’t think you can prepare. It’s a bit of a freestyle.”

If you read my post about the gay couple being asked to leave a shopping mall due to PDA, you know I referred to that incident as one of the most ridiculous things I’ve read recently. Correction. This insane comment by Taylor is now officially the most absurd thing I’ve read.

At this year’s Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler teased Taylor Swift to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son. Apparently, T. Swizzle can’t take a joke. The 23-year-old singer revealed to Vanity Fair that the slam at her was an act against feminism. LOL.

“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women,’” – Taylor Swift

Totally cuckoo right? I’m sure this situation isn’t one where Couric would think the quote is applicable. Out of all the jokes delivered by Fey and Poehler that night, the one directed at Swift was the least offensive.

So, let me get this straight. It’s okay for her to write songs thinly-disguised as tell-alls about her various liaisons, but it’s not right for others to call her out on it. Someone needs to take themselves less seriously. Swift also goes on to say that the fact that she’s so open in her lyrics should be celebrated, not ridiculed.

“For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her,” she says, “I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated — a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way — that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.” – Taylor Swift

My favorite issue of any month of any publication is here. Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood Issue is one I look forward to all year long. Typically, they gather a group of talented actors to pose for an epic photo shoot with an iconic photographer. This year, the famed Bruce Weber snapped the cover and the inside editorial which was more monumental than previous years. Reportedly, a whopping 75 different celebrities posed for 100+ photos for this year’s theme of “Adventures in Hollywood.”

Receiving the huge honor of gracing the cover (and not in the flap) are Ben Affleck, Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper. While not one of my favorite covers, I like the fun aspect of Emma in the middle while Ben and Bradley wear a bear suit and gorilla costume respectively. This is the first time for both Affleck and Cooper to make the cover, but second for Stone. The Easy A actress first appeared in 2010′s “It Girls” theme shoot. Back then, Stone was hanging around with Evan Rachel Wood and Anna Kendrick on the third flap of the extended cover.

Speaking of the 2010 issue, that year received numerous complaints for being too whitewashed. I’m sure the 19th annual Hollywood edition will also raise some eyebrows. Two women of color made the cover, but in the second and third flap. Find out who they are below, along with all the previous eighteen VF Hollywood Issue covers.

This coming January 2013 is Vanity Fair‘s first ever comedy issue and it’s guest edited by Judd Apatow. For the issue, Apatow brought together his most talented friends and idols to contribute, write, and pose for a 19-page Mark Seliger portfolio. There are three different covers to this issue, with four different comedians looking fabulously funny on each. I’ve included all three of them below and you can vote for which one you like best.

This is only the third time since Graydon Carter became the editor of the magazine 20 years ago that someone has been a guest editor. The last guest editor was Bono when he guest-edited the Africa issue in July of 2007. Before that, Tom Ford guest-edited a Hollywood Portfolio in March of 2006. With the comedy genre booming these days, Carter felt like it was the perfect time for such an issue and that Judd Apatow was the perfect choice for the job.

In the first cover shown above, Jim Carrey is dressed up as Evel Knievel, Maya Rudolph is doing an ancient Egyptian like Steve Martin in his King Tut days, Will Ferrell is done up like a corny cowboy, and Amy Poehler as a 60s go-go girl. Check out the other two covers below, featuring comedians like Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and more.
