Hathaway pulled a Britney

Anne Hathaway has been in her glory over the past several weeks as she and the rest of the Les Misérables cast and crew promote the heck out of their upcoming movie. Anne was on quite a roll until Monday night when she arrived at the film’s NYC premiere — and showed everyone her goodies.

“I was getting out of the car and my dress was so tight that I didn’t realize it until I saw all the photographers’ flashes,” she told Vanity Fair writer Ingrid Sischy (via New York Daily News) the next day. “It was devastating. They saw everything. I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them.”

Hathaway was trying to get out of the black SUV, as smoothly as possible, but when she swung her weird boots toward the curb, the slit of her dress couldn’t handle that much movement — and she flashed her bits to the waiting cameras.

Poor Anne. She usually has it all together, so this has got to be mortifying for her. Ths is the kind of thing that happens to Britney (well, back in the day), Lindsay and Paris, but a future Oscar nominee? Honestly, though, this’ll all be forgotten by the time her name’s being said during some awards ceremony. And Anne, being the good sport she is, will probably make a crack about it while presenting or accepting one of those awards. What I have to wonder is, what made her (or her stylist) think those gladiator/dominatrix strappy leather leg warmers were a good idea. I blame her wardrobe malfunction on those bad boys (and the weird bubble cape at the back didn’t help). It all probably got in the way of her trying to seamlessly exit her car.

Michael Douglas brokering DeVito-Perlman reconciliation

Radar claims the actor is hell-bent on reuniting the estranged pair. 

Hooray for Michael Douglas! The veteran actor is single-handedly trying to rescue love and not just by proving that, despite absolutely no historical precedent, an obscenely wealthy, older man can land a much younger, beautiful wife.

No. This time, Michael is channeling his formidable love-rescuing efforts into saving the marriage of Danny DeVitoand Rhea Perlman, a couple whose dramatic split this past October resonated like a bullet tearing through the upper left thigh of happily ever after.

Radar Online reports that the Oscar-winning star is urging the former marrieds to give their union another shot, because, like everyone else in the entire universe could tell them, they are meant to be together and the world will not be right until they reunite.

“When Michael found out Danny and Rhea were splitting up he told Danny he thought he was making a big mistake,” a source who may or may not be connected to Michael’s publicity team tells Radar.

“Michael loves Rhea and he told Danny he will never find another woman quite like her. They complement each other perfectly and are the best of friends.

 “He said he should do whatever it takes to win Rhea back and come to his senses fast before it is too late. It’s because of Michael they are talking to each other.”

Naturally, much of this depends on Rhea’s willingness to put up with Danny’s notorious and somewhat creepy wandering eye. Creepy because… well, when one thinks of an insatiable sex monster, Danny DeVito is quite possibly the last image one wishes to conjure up.

But Michael is reportedly convinced he can help broker a peace agreement between the two and has casually let it slip that the two are now back in communication thanks to his mediation skills.

“They are still trying to work things out, and for the moment they are just good friends, but they are heading in the right direction,” the source continues.

“Michael is well positioned to talk about marriage. He’s been with Catherine (Zeta-Jones) for 12 years now and he learned a lot from his failed first marriage to Diandra (Luker).”

I don’t care if this is a well-positioned bit of PR fluff. Make it happen, Michael! Love is depending on you.
