Oscar gossip: Did Natalie Portman carefully avoid ‘drunk’ Jennifer Aniston?


I think one of the biggest indicators that this year’s Oscars was a total snooze is the fact that one of the biggest post-Oscar stories of the week is about… Zendaya and Giuliana Rancic. No offense to those ladies, but where’s the A-list gossip? Thankfully, Star Magazine had a silly/fun breakdown of some random gossip that went down at the Oscars and Oscar parties. Some highlights:

*During the VF Oscar party, Natalie Portman “did her best to steer clear of Jennifer Aniston” because Natalie has “an allegiance” to Angelina Jolie. Reese Witherspoon apparently ran interference for Natalie when Nat almost bumped into Aniston near the bathroom.

*Speaking of Jennifer Aniston, she apparently got “straight-up drunk!” She “grabbed Selena Gomez’s butt and told Sofia Vergara she wanted to ‘eat her up.'”

*When Chrissy Teigen was backstage at the Oscars, Neil Patrick Harris said hi to Chrissy but she just rolled her eyes and kept walking… it was very bizarre,” says a source.

*When Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman walked the carpet, “People were speculating that they got his-and-hers Botox.”

*Jessica Chastain tried to chat with Meryl Streep backstage but Meryl “couldn’t have looked more put off.”

*Jared Leto “openly ogled” Behati Prinsloo right in front of Adam Levine.

*Sienna Miller “was horrified” when someone asked her if Robert Pattinson would ever get back together with Kristen Stewart. Sienna didn’t even respond, apparently.

*Scarlett Johansson went over to Lady Gaga and said “I would give away all my acting talent to be able to do what you did and touch a crowd like that.”

*At the pre-Oscars dinner, Anna Wintour “paid special attention to Rita Ora” which obviously means that Rita will get a Vogue cover, right?

*Khloe Kardashian was slamming back champagne before she went on air on E!. She might have been too drunk to host, really.

*Emma Stone sent videos and photos to Andrew Garfield (he wasn’t there) all night.

*People were buzzing about American Sniper’s notable snubs and “the buzz at the Oscar parties was that Clint got snubbed because of his staunchly Republican views.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Is any of this true? Eh. I think some of these pieces of gossip seemed true-ish, like they maybe happened. Chrissy Teigen rolling her eyes at NPH, Khloe pre-partying too hard, Sienna Miller not wanting to talk about Sparkles, Jared Leto creeping on a model. All of that sounds legit. I don’t think Natalie Portman has any particular loyalty to Angelina Jolie, but God knows. And would Meryl Streep ignore Jessica Chastain?!

    Uninteresting Oscar=uninteresting gossip

    • denisemich says:

      Jessica C. talked widely about Meryl Streep being given roles first and that their are other actors that are also worthy. I am sure Meryl avoided her because she LOVES being the best female actor of her generation

  2. Lucy2 says:

    Good grief, Star will never let that triangle die. How silly. And drunk or sober, Khloe cannot do that job.
    The only one I actually believe is Jared Leto’s, lol.

  3. Sullivan says:

    Drunk Aniston gets handsy. Maybe Portman didn’t want her butt grabbed.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      What is up with that? She seems to have a thing about grabbing other women’s butts.

      • doofus says:

        and Reese W grabbed hers on the RC.

        must be some (juvenile) thing/joke amongst that group. My group of friends went through a phase where we were all snapping each other’s bra straps. the point was to do it when the person was talking to someone and not expecting it.

        of course, we were in high school…but, since so many folks talk about how H’wood is very much like high school with so many people in a state of arrested development, it makes sense.

    • Senaber says:

      Perhaps she wanted to avoid self-tanner stains on her white dress?

    • Lily says:

      Even when sober Aniston has no concept of personal space. I have never seen someone so in need to cling to people.

    • Joh says:

      Spanx check?

  4. Ann says:

    *People were buzzing about American Sniper’s notable snubs and “the buzz at the Oscar parties was that Clint got snubbed because of his staunchly Republican views.”

    Sure, all the bigoted old white male Oscar voters don’t like Clint’s conservatism?

    • jen2 says:

      Doesn’t he already have multiple Oscars and his movie was nominated for multiple awards and Selma only a couple? So, that sentiment makes no sense.

      Maybe Portman just did not want to be pawed by some drunk person she probably does not know well. Nothing strange about that. It has nothing whatsoever to do with Angelina, but, hey, have to drag her name into this even when she is not there. Don’t know why.

      • doofus says:

        you don’t know why?…because, as evidenced almost daily, there is a large crop of folks who are NOT. OVER. IT.

        and Star Mag knows that, they play to their audience.

        I agree, though, that I would also not want to be pawed at by a drunk someone I don’t know well. it’s so aggravating having to deal with a sloppy/annoying drunk person whey you are sober. I even get annoyed at the bf sometimes when he’s tipsy and I’m not. (ETA: thankfully, the bf thinks I’m adorable and hilarious when I’m tipsy and he’s not. A true keeper…lol.)

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        I don’t want to be pawed by anyone, and especially not a drunk.

    • Algernon says:

      American Sniper didn’t win stuff because technically, it wasn’t a good movie. Bradley Cooper was really good, if he had won best actor, I would not have complained about it. But besides his performance, it was just a so-so movie. I did think the sound award was deserved, but nothing about AS was special or unique or even a cut above average. And worse, there was a rumor that circulated around the holidays that Eastwood didn’t even finish directing it, that Cooper was the one who walked the movie through post-production because Eastwood would only show up every once in a while. That’s why Cooper got a producer credit. I tend to believe that rumor because I remember that AS almost missed its premiere at AFI because it wasn’t done, and then I heard that there were still some minor edits made between that premiere and its theatrical release. Those rumors gained steam through new year’s, and I think that killed AS’s momentum.

    • Maria A. says:

      Well, Clint has only himself to blame after that bizarre performance he gave at the Republican Convention in 2012. I know that changed my perception of him from just a Republican, which I’d known for decades and could have cared less about, to someone who was entirely inappropriate on a public stage. I haven’t gone to see any of his movies since and he is a good director, but man, I can’t shake how rude and bizarre he was back in 2012.

    • fritanga says:

      Well, there’s conservatism, and there’s conservatism, and Clint is pretty out there these days, even for the Hollywood old and/or middle-aged guard. Doubt that it had anything to do with the snub, though – the movie just sucked, and Cooper was mediocre in it.

  5. Andrea1 says:

    The oscar awards was boring this year!
    Ugh this thread is about to get sooo “interesting” I need to grab a drink! I’ll be right back 😉

  6. Ann says:

    Portman needs to stop messing with her face.

  7. Jessica says:

    Why would Natalie have any particular ‘allegiance’ to Angelina, and why would she need to purposefully avoid Jennifer given they barely know each other, if at all. And how does Reese fit in, I know she and Jennifer are friendly, but is she friends with Natalie too? It’s all very convoluted. Make up less complicated, more believable gossip please tabloids.

    Clint was snubbed because he made a garbage movie about a garbage person. A good performance by Bradley Cooper doesn’t change that.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      A garbage person? Wow. That is really harsh.

    • Hardy says:

      Wow. I am dumbfounded by your comment. That man was a true hero. I’m sure the families of the many people he saved would disagree with you.

      • katren says:

        I’m sure the families of the many people he killed would agree that he was a terrible person obsessed with killing.

      • fritanga says:

        You need to dig a little deeper about this “true hero” – by many accounts he was a remorseless killing machine. Perhaps Hollywood didn’t like the victimization/glorification of someone like him.

      • Fwozbo says:

        I agree with the movie concept. Though I didn’t see the movie I heard he killed people carrying weapons to kill us. Women and children carrying weapons. I don’t care who you are if you are going to kill you are fair game.

  8. ThatMitsyGirl says:

    That ScarJo quote is something else. Eye roll. ALL of my acting talent like its some big sacrifice. Gimme a break.

    • FKA Pri says:


    • oneshot says:

      It’s easy to dismiss her because she’s pretty, blonde and has big boobs, but based on the Horse Whisperer, Ghost World, Lost in Translation, the Girl with the Pearl Earring, Match Point, Lucy and Her, she has a decent amount of it. And I say this very reluctantly because I am no fan, but I liked her in the Avengers too.

      as for acting talent, not that Scarjo would need too much of it with her looks, but if being blonde and big boobed was everything then Blake Lively would be an A list actress. SJ got at least some acting ability, I give her that.

      • KatyD says:

        I think she’s acceptable in certain roles but she’s not a great actor. She was good in Girl with a Pearl Earring and Don Juan. In other words, she’s fine when she’s not talking or when she plays a caricature. However, when she tries for serious, it becomes a joke. I thought she was bad in Lucy (the whole movie was terrible), bad in Under the Skin, really bad in Match Point, and just there in many of her other roles. Her voice is always wooden California valley girl and she’s not even from my state. She just doesn’t have vocal or acting range, if you ask me.

      • taxi says:

        She got a Tony for A View from the Bridge. She sings & has a couple of albums released. People who nominate for various awards consider her talented & she’s won quite a few. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0424060/awards?ref_=nm_ql_2

        Scarlett is also one of the more generous contributors to quite a few charities.

      • deehunny says:

        I’m surprised you haven’t mentioned “Her” with Joaquin Phoenix. I’d argue that’s another movie where she flexed her acting chops, even if it was only voice acting.

      • Josefa says:

        I agree. I think Scarlett is a competent actress. I have never been left in awe by a performance of hers, but she’s never ruined a movie with her pressence, either.

  9. Liz says:

    Didn’t Jessica Chastain give a interview where she shaded Meryl Streep about her taking all the projects for older actresses last year? Could explain why they wrote that.

  10. BNA FN says:

    JA appears to be over friendly when she is greeting friends or acquaintances. She is always squeezing someone within a inch of their life. She appears desperate to be liked by all.

    Btw, I missed seeing Brad and Angelina on the Red Carpet, no wonder the Oscars was so boring, no Pitt Porn, everyone was so bland and boring.

    Did anyone noticed the body language between JA and JT above? He appears as if he is trying get away from the death hug, lol.

    • Frida_K says:

      Yes, the body language really caught my eye too. It’s as though he were recoiling from her. His upper body is stiff and he’s sharply pulled away from the waist up, while she clings on him. The expressions on their faces are pretty creepy too.


    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @BNA FN, who wrote:

      I was going to comment on the Just-Jen body language … I agree! That’s how people look when they lean away from someone just a bit ‘Tipsy/Friendly’ in the “I love you man!” kind of way or (dare I say it?), when they lean away from someone they’re no longer with who is being ‘overly’ affectionate in public. As insecure as she is, I wouldn’t doubt at all that Jen is a ‘clingy’ drunk. But what’s cute and ‘bearable’ when you’re in your 20’s and 30’s becomes less so at 46.

  11. Lilacflowers says:

    I would avoid drunk Jennifer Aniston too and it has nothing whatsoever to do with Angelina Jolie.

  12. Tippy says:

    It seems like there was a lot of butt grabbing going on before and after the Oscars.

    Reese Witherspoon goosed Jennifer Aniston while she was giving an interview on the red carpet.

  13. Rhiley says:

    The pictures I saw of Jared Leto at the Oscars really annoyed me. Very Jennifer Lawrence, very “look at me, I’m here. I am so surprised and happy to see you. Look at me. I am making a goofy face for Vanity Fair. Look at me. I win Oscars, but I can be big goofball, too. Look at me. Normally, I am in the method, you know, but tonight the pressures off, and I’ve come to paaarrrtttyyy.” Oh, and Jared Leto needs a good cut and conditioner.

  14. Maya says:

    You know – the more I read and see Jennifer’s antics the more I am getting convinced that Jennifer is either a closet lesbian or Bi.

    When someone is drunk/stoned their inner personalities and desires usually comes out.

    If I was Natalie – I would have stayed clear of Jennifer as well especially since the way Jennifer behaved with no class infront of their peers.

    If Jennifer wanted to impress her peers during this award season – she failed miserably with her ruthless campaign and juvenile redcarpet behaviour.

    Won’t be surprised if Natalie was friends with Angelina because I remember reading years ago that Brad wanted to cast Natalie for a project and both families hang out. But as everyone knows – Brad and Angelina’s friends in showbusiness are real friends who are loyal. They don’t namedrop the jolie-Pitts nor do they use them for publicity. No one knew that George Lucas has been a close friend of Angelina’s for 15 years or so.

    PS: can someone please tell when is next for Jennifer career wise? I have heard nothing about any of her future projects.

    • Rosalee says:

      Maya, your tin hat is too tight

    • Catk says:

      I love that JA is the title of this article, when just one small bit of gossip. This site loves its click bait!

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Maya, who wrote: “You know – the more I read and see Jennifer’s antics the more I am getting convinced that Jennifer is either a closet lesbian or Bi.”

      I’ve been saying this for years. I truly do believe–in my opinion–that Jen is Bi and that Brad knew it going in (he ‘does’ seem to have a preference for Bi-women). I find it amusing how Jen’s fans snark on Brad’s love of Bi ladies, but somehow that magically only means Angie, and not Jen. 🙂

      • Maya says:

        @Emma: since you agree with me – you might have to borrow my tin hat which I borroed by Rosalee.

        As for the rest – Jen and her hens have been and will always be hypocrites.

      • Des says:

        I always thought she was bi, but can you blame her for keeping that to herself, her fanbase would drop her in a heart beat. So is JT bearding ? Is that the reason not to Marry? Im sure a lot of men and women in Hollywood have dipped in the same sex pot. Not my business, but not an issue with me either.

      • perplexed says:

        Angelina officially confirmed her sexuality.

  15. Jade says:

    I don’t get what the so called allegiance with Angie is about. Maybe Natalie is just not chummy with her and doesn’t want to pretend all the Hollywood women are buddies?

    Why is JA acting so desperate to be liked? Oh maybe she is working the Oscar circuit for next year. Regardless, I would not be comfortable with a drunk or sober colleague grabbing my ass and pretending we are buddies.

    • Lily says:

      Aniston needs some roles. Does she even have a definite project coming up?
      However she is not going to get the good roles with the great directors because there is a long line of much more talented women in front of her.

  16. Ari says:

    Every single of those items ring so true to me it hurts LOL

  17. Neil says:

    My wish, my dream is that someone could make a living writing salacious stories about the publishers, editors, writers, owners and yes, even the families (especially the families) of all these types of garbage magazines, web sites and tv shows. I just love hypocrisy when it is exposed and one of my fondest memories was when the British publication, News Of The World (Rupert Murdock’s baby) was embroiled in the phone hacking scandal and had to finally shut its doors.

  18. Ginger says:

    Some people get super handsy when drunk. Lord knows I’ve been groped by men and women when I was still going out drinking. A few times by total strangers. I’m sure that’s the main reason Natalie wanted to avoid Jennifer. And I could see Emma sending her boyfriend Andrew photos and videos of the event. That’s sweet. And Nicole and Keith with his and hers botox…that’s not even a secret. But the best of all of this to me was Jared eyeing Adam Levine’s lady. Now that’s some good musician gossip.

  19. neer says:

    IMO, Natalie has more in common with AJ than Aniston. She is smart like AJ. Both have something between their ears unlike the JA who has only big ears. I could imagine Natalie would rather prefer having a good conversation with the likes of AJ and vice versa.

    BTW, Natalie Portman said this about AJ several years ago, “And there are people in my own profession I admire, who have done things and made substantial change, like Bono and Angelina Jolie. They are models for how you can meaningfully devote your life to causes. It’s not just lending your face. It’s giving yourself. A lot of people lack meaning in their lives, and that’s why getting active in issues like microfinance gives you such a center to your life”

    • Tarsha says:

      Nods head vigorously at what you said and what Natalie said.

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah no. Natalie seems about as exciting as dry toast.

    • Nancy says:

      Jolie is intelligent? How do you know? Did she even finish high school?

      • Nancy says:

        Just to clarify: not that you have to go to college to be intelligent – my dad was a carpenter and the most intelligent person I’ve known. But I have never seen nor heard any evidence that Jolie is a rocket scientist.

      • lisa2 says:

        She finished High School early.. at 16..

        Why do people like you always try to portray her as a High School dropout.. and even if that was the case it wouldn’t mean she was not a smart person. College does not equal intelligence.

    • norah says:

      maybe natalie just didnt want to be groped by jennifer aniston. ? i mean which person would – by a stranger especially at a professional event even at a after party – i dont think everyone enjoys being manhandled by everyone

  20. Catk says:

    Boring gossip. And I think Jennifer Anniston would be fun to get drunk with, out of most of Hollywood. She’s kind of a broad, on a good way.

    • Katherine says:

      Fun to get drunk with? Jennifer is 46 years old. Who does this at that age – and at public events no less?

      • Jaded says:

        Um…I’m 62 and I like getting my wine-on with my girlfriends. Is there a law stating that after 40 you can’t get a little boozy with your mates once in a while? Now we don’t ass-grab or try to lift each other up, and getting loaded when you’re a celebrity being photographed at the Oscars IS immature, save it for the after-parties.

      • Kitten says:

        Very curious–what’s the age limit for getting drunk at a party?

    • Lily says:

      Yes so fun. You can talk about your hair cuts all night, do not forget to talk about your body!

    • DTX says:

      @catk, I think so too! When I get drunk, I don’t want to talk about the problems of the world or have some smart philosophical conversation with uptight people (that’s what Natalie Portman seems like to me.) I want to laugh my ass off and tell dirty jokes & meet everyone! I want to be on the side of the room where everyone is having fun. JAs pics seem to show that she’s kinda that way too. So maybe I’m annoying too, but I’ll tell you what, my hubs & I always get invited to every party and when we go out with friends everyone always ends up at my house for the after party so I must not be that annoying. I think people just want to find any reason to hate JA, there are many good reasons to do so but this isn’t one of them to me, in fact partying with her would likely one of the few things I’d like about her (and it’s totally superficial!). Sue me.

      I would probably avoid all the self-righteous folks who can’t seem to have any fun but that’s just me.

    • Nancy says:

      Yes, she seems like fun, and it seems like mostly everyone likes her. I know I like her a lot more than I like Jolie or Witherspoon – she certainly doesn’t seem as obnoxiously vain and self-impressed as either of them!

  21. Gia says:

    Maybe this is Star talking in code and Natalie and Jen are scorned ex lovers. Kind of like all the news articles last year about Courtney Cox and JA on A break (that was very weird), and how Courtney was replaced by new is BFF Chelsea Handler. In Hollywood a lot of these BFF relationships are PR spin. All media hints point JA to gay. Blind Gossip finally outed her this week.

  22. lila fowler says:

    *Jessica Chastain tried to chat with Meryl Streep backstage but Meryl “couldn’t have looked more put off.”

    Chastain is the one who said that Meryl takes too many jobs and she’d like to see other older women get opportunities. LOL, she has some nerve.

    • Kason says:

      Jessica was criticizing Hollywood for not creating more roles for women in that age group and it came off badly, or she was misquoted. She was criticizing Hollywood and not Streep. She corrected herself.


      • lila fowler says:

        She was NOT misquoted. She was talking out of her a$$, though. And she name-checked Queen Meryl when she didn’t have to, to make her point. She’s a moron and her furious backpedaling over this was hilarious to watch. Seems like Meryl took offense.

      • Kason says:

        How do you know she wasn’t misquoted? Or, that she said something and it came out all wrong, and it’s not what she intended? Jeez, give her a break–she’s just an actress–not a college professor. 🙂

    • Tarsha says:

      I agree with her. I am so sick of and over the fawning adoration for Meryl. In my opinion she is way WAY over-rated and gets all these attention and nominations and awards and parts because she has a great agent and advertising campaign despite having mediocre to average talent. I truly and totally get, and agree with Jessica, and I have come across many others that do, too. About time someone said the truth. Good on Jessica as far as I’m concerned.

      • Darya says:

        @tarsha, some if Meryl’s recent nominations may have been questionable, but that does not mean she has ‘mediocre to average’ talent. She is one if the finest actresses in the last half century, no question. Just because most of the attention has been on the less dramatic parts she’s played recently doesn’t lessen her brilliance.

        If she is average to mediocre, everyone else should just quit acting entirely and find jobs in the fast food industry because they have no hope at all of ever being any good.

      • Tarsha says:

        I’m talking about her earlier movies mainly. Kramer vs Kramer and A Cry In the dark. Sorry, but not everyone buys her hype. I stand by my comment that she is mediocre to average. There are many better actresses out there. She has been drilled into us that she is so great by a great marketing campaign, so now a lot of us believe it. Sorry, I see through it for what it is. She truly is just not that good.

      • Darya says:

        Wow, I guess you and I are going to have to agree to disagree. It’s been 30 yrs since Sophie’s Choice, Silkwood, Out of Africa, and yes even Kramer vs. Kramer and I still remember her performances. More recently, Julie and Julia and Iron Lady. She made Miranda Priestly 3 dimensional when others might have just done a parody of Anna Wintour. I’ve only seen snippets of Cry in the Dark, that one didnt win her any awards did it?

      • Nancy says:

        I disagree…have you seen “Sophie’s Choice”? Streep is a brilliant woman and actress. She went to Vassar, and Yale, I think. She can do anything as far as acting goes.

        I can’t think of any other actress with her versatility and talent alive today. Maybe Blanchett will follow in her footsteps – they both have that quality to turn themselves into anyone.

      • FLORC says:

        Let’s not forget Death Becomes Her or SheDevil! Also excellent movies of hers 🙂

        Chastain likely regrets her words, but I think she meant them when spoke.

        And yea, some actresses hog the roles. Are they suppose to pass so another actress can get tossed them a bone? Sour grapes.

      • KatyD says:

        Sour grapes? I hardly think Meryl Streep would be up for the same role as Jessica Chastain. (Meryl would smoke her if that ever happened, but they’re not in the same age bracket). I think Jessica is a big movie fan and really supports more women in film, but her words don’t always come out eloquently. She’s always making comments supporting her fellow actresses on Twitter. Or, maybe Streep pissed in her Cheerios? Who knows.

  23. db says:

    Although Portman always seems to have a stick up her butt, I can totally see why she would avoid a tipsy, grabby Aniston.

  24. Gal says:

    “I would give away all my acting talent to be able to do what you did and touch a crowd like that.” Hmmm…she wouldn’t be giving up much.

  25. Triple Cardinal says:

    Not buying the Botox bit about Nicole and Keith. I can’t see her sharing her Botox with anyone. And that includes that lap dog she calls a husband.

    Besides, Keith doesn’t look Botoxed as much as he looks sand-blasted. Whole ‘nother procedure, I suppose.

  26. ncboudicca says:

    I love the facial expression and hand positioning of the background dude in the Leto-Cumberbatch photo. He looks like he’s pondering whether or not to make his move..

  27. littlestar says:

    I was just wondering the other day, where did Natalie Portman go? She hasn’t been in a movie in a long time!

  28. Ice Queen says:

    LOL, is it weird that I believe all of this. They are people just like us.

  29. FingerBinger says:

    The folks at Fox news thought American Sniper was snubbed. I don’t believe for a minute any of these Hollywood people thought it was snubbed. Everyone knows Eastwood’s views and it doesn’t matter.

    I had no idea Jolie and Portman were even friends. I get why she would have to be loyal to her.

  30. Katherine says:

    Perhaps Natalie didn’t want some kissy kissy overly friendly photo op with Jennifer forced upon her. It does seem Jennifer is going a bit overboard trying to look like the life of the party. I can see how that could be annoying.

    Natalie has been traveling in Brad and Angelina circles for a while now.

    • Ennie says:

      Pressed much?

    • Tarsha says:

      “Portman being a Harvard Grad” Ah, that explains why she didn’t want to be seen with Aniston. PMSL! Yes Ennie I was thinking that. Natalie has a ‘better filmography’? pmsl, keep dreaming. You know that not every single star in Hollywood dislikes Brad and Angelina the way you do, right? That some stars DO like them, as much as you don’t want to hear about it?

    • Kitten says:

      The title of “Harvard grad” becomes a bit less distinguished when you use your celeb status and bank account to buy your way into admissions.

      Just saying.

      • Valois says:

        how can you buy your way into Harvard?

      • perplexed says:

        I don’t know if this happened in Natalie’s case. But I’m sure people who come from prominent families have been able to buy their way into the school. Some get in on merit; others get in because they come from rich or famous families who will be able to provide in future to Harvard’s endowment (i.e the Kennedys?).

        Maybe Natalie got in partly on merit (i.e. good grades) and partly on fame and money (i.e she’s famous enough that Harvard knows that in future she’d either be rich enough to donate to their endowment or famous enough to proudly count as one of their alumni in order to attract other donors). Maybe the Star Wars movies counted as extracurriculars or something to that effect, but I think her fame would have enabled her to at least be noticed among the group of people who had similar grades to her, who is mostly likely anybody and everybody who applies to Harvard.

        why talk abt natalie portman that way. Perhaps she just didnt want to be seen with a drunk and very handsy jennifer aniston? Perhaps she didnt want some stranger grabbing her and spoiling her white dress ? who knows – how natalie got into harvard is not the issue here nor sd it be either. we are just talking abt jennifer aniston and natalie portman etc. as i have said before if it had been a guy grabbing emma or isla fisher that wd have been a story but imo making excuses for jennifer aniston behaving like this just doesnt make sense.

      • perplexed says:

        How is talking about Harvard making excuses for Aniston? Someone asked a question, and I answered it.

        I can believe that Portman preferred to avoid a drunk Aniston over an allegiance to Angelina, but oddly enough the drunkenness of Aniston doesn’t seem to mentioned in connection with Portman. The drunk issue is mentioned separately. Portman’s relationship with Jolie is mentioned as to why she avoided Aniston, but I doubt either Portman or Jolie care for each other as friends.

      What an educational snob you are…so educated people only have to spend time with fellow educated people? I am so glad that there aren’t many people in the who is a snob like you.

      Just because there are no pictures it doesn’t mean it is not true.

      The Jolie Pitts have lots of real friends in hollywood who never namedrops them nor uses them for publicity.

    • Lol, Natalie Portman having a better filmography than Angelina? Seriously. Angelina isn’t the best actress in Hollywood, but she’s head and shoulders above Natalie, who is coasting on Leon the Professional and Black Swan. Beyond those two movies and Star Wars (and Thor), she hasn’t had a hit movie, or anything worth writing about. I honestly can’t believe she’s still acting. Maybe the “Jane Got A Gun” movie will be worth watching, I don’t know. But Natalie is a horrible actress. And I doubt this story is true–because of the Angelina factor. I’ve been reading that Jennifer said she didn’t want to drink because she’d keep going, so I was gonna call bs on this story to begin with. But I don’t doubt that Natalie Portman wanted to avoid ANY drunk, handsy person.

    • perplexed says:

      I think George Clooney kind of name-drops Brad Pitt.

  31. FLORC says:

    I believe Portman considers herself above others. These stories and evidence to support it whave been around for years and years. I doubt there was a true Jolie factor. And I bet Aniston got drunk and handsy because that’s also been supported by facts and photos for years and years.

    Kidman and Urban got botox… Ofcourse they did. This isn’t something special for the Oscars. They’re always botoxed.

    And Leto doesn’t respect boundaries. So, yea he openly ogles anyone and everyone.

    Chrissy T. Yea. This is also supported from years of similar accounts and behavior.
    The rest seems like there’s a grain of truth to it. Which is what Star Mag does. They get it almost right or just print the obvious like it’s unknown and scandalous news.

    And why is Lupita’s Pearl dress being stolen not big news? It’s a $150,000 dress! Pearl by peart could sell for almost $100!

    • Valois says:

      Really? I always thought Chrissy was rather down to earth and nice. What stories are floating around about her?

      • FLORC says:

        That’s she immature and needs to be the center of attention. Also, she’s got an attitude/ego problem. Stories stem from paps witnessing her being rude to every day folks. Her joking about domestic abuse, how she addressed people who didn’t like her vagberries pranks, not cleaing up her puppy’s poop and dismissing those who asked her to do so. It goes on, but those are off the top.

        And some really thought her wedding day behavior was strange. It imo seemed much like Justin Timberlake’s behavior for his wedding. All about me and no one else. I won’t go further because I don’t like bashing others weddings.

        All of this can be brushed aside. She has built an image of a model who eats and seems realistic for herself. There’s just a lot of examples of her looking down on people and getting into personal attacks if someone questions her behavior. As far as that goes it’s similar to how Leann responds to those on social media that do not agree with her.

      • Jaded says:

        I will add to Florc’s comment that when we had a raging Jihadist gunman shooting up the Parliament buildings and killing a guard in Ottawa, Chrissy felt the need to tweet the following: “active shooting in Canada, or as we call it in america, Wednesday”…not funny, especially for the family and friends of the soldier who was killed.

      • FLORC says:

        There’s too many examples of her poor sense of humor. It had good intent as she later explained, but was said in the worst way. And when people called her out on how she stated her point she got aggressive at them. And most were being reasonable in their wording and points.

      • Valois says:

        Thank you for your explaination! Seems I fell for her image. She sounds like a nasty piece of work (at least in the episodes you mentioned).
        I tried to find some stuff, too and she seems to be into slutshaming, too, which is kind of funny, when you’re a SI model, and was extremely aggressive after being called out.
        Oh John….

      • Valois says:

        Oops, sorry for my awful English :/

    • Peppa says:

      I used to think Chrissy was funny, but the more I have heard about her the more I am getting a bad vibe from her. She does seem like a raging narcissist (and I know that is not unusual in Hollywood) and a little bit immature. I hope Chrissy wasn’t being nasty to someone like NPH… because I see a Real Housewives career in her future. She also posted pictures of John’s Oscar statue on her Instagram and had an attitude like she should be respected now too. I mean, Chrissy had nothing to do with that accomplishment.

      • FLORC says:

        I thought the same at that pic.
        It’s not a stretch to assume she would roll her eyes.

        I was indifferent on her, but she has a real word vomit issue to say the least.

  32. Adriana says:

    I honestly don’t get Chrissy Tiegen. I just don’t see how she is a thing. Not to be mean but I don’t think she’s pretty at all or has model features. I know some models are successful from having odd looks, but it’s not like that with her.

  33. KellyBee says:

    I think most of this is BS and people will by into it because the Oscar we’re so boring people want something to talk about.

    Now here what I think is true.

    1. Jen being druck I believe. She looked and acted like she had a little to much to drink before she got to the Oscars and more at the after party, everything else I think is BS.

    2. Many people have talk about Keith being Botoxy in the past so I buy that part.

    3. Khole being drunk while hosting.

    Everything else seems like BS.

  34. niliada says:

    I don’t believe Natalie Portman avoided Jennifer because of an ‘alligence ” with Angelina. I don’t even think she cares about Angelina, has she even met her? I doubt it. Portman seem very low-key and she has alot of freinds outside of Hollywood. Jolie,Pitt, Aniston are all high profile people.

  35. perplexed says:

    I could actually see Portman thinking she’s above both Aniston and Jolie, if I’m honest. I’m not saying that’s actually true, but I’d believe that sort of rumour over her having an allegiance to Jolie.

  36. ashley says:

    I can never decide about Chrissy Teigen. I think she’s pretty obnoxious but some of her posts on social media make me laugh. I dunno. She is very ME centric.

  37. Dee says:

    Meryl is known for being cold to younger actresses (this coming from a story told by an agent of her former costar). Won’t speak to them at all while working with them, but when the press is watching, is all kindness and smiles and compliments. So, not surprised that she’d ignore Chastain.

    • Dońt kill me i'm french says:

      It’s a misquoted anecdot from The Devil wears Prada filming .Meryl didn’t talk to Blunt or Hathaway during the filming

  38. Twinkle says:

    I’m doubtful that Meryl avoided Jessica. She’s mingled with Jennifer Aniston for Pete’s sake. Jessica’s has way more gravitas that Jen.

  39. LaurieH says:

    Who cares? But on a side note, it’s probably all true. Yes, they are that vapid.

  40. Susannah says:

    Meryl Streep was seated right next to Jennifer Lopez at the Oscars. Who maneuvered that ingenious seating arrangement?!?
    Chrissy Teigen is half Norwegian and half Thai which explains her unusual face, though not her behavior.

  41. Flower says:

    Natalie is beginning to look very Audrey Hepburnish as she ages…..nice.

  42. norah says:

    maybe just maybe natalie portman just didnt want to be grabbed by someone she doesnt know or who was probably drunk or high or whatever – jennifer a was certainly acting like the life of the party etc and maybe natalie just didnt want her grabby little hands all over her or her white dress. if it was a man touching all the other women it wd be clear harassment but just because it is another woman that makes it ok? if jennifer a wanted to touch her friends that is fine but why she grabs another pple like sofia v or isla fisher or even natalie p that is definitely not comfortable for anyone and just perhaps natalie has a little bit of self respect not to take a picture or allow jennifer a to cop a feel

  43. norah says:

    It looked bad at the golden globes when ja grabbed kate hudson and it looked really bad when she touched emma stone as well – how on earth ja gets a pass for this behaviour on an oscar or a gg red carpet i still have no idea. I dont see any other actress behaving like this at all. professional vs private behaviour still matters shouldnt it?

    • perplexed says:

      Wasn’t Emma Stone hugging Aniston back with as strong a grip and as wide of a smile? It didn’t look like a forced hug. Emma Stone wasn’t standing stone-faced like Scarlett Johannson when Travolta was hovering around her.
