James Franco Finally Opens Up About Hosting the Oscars

In a recent interview with David Letterman, James Franco finally opened up about his highly-criticized hosting work at the 83rd Academy Awards ceremony. "Maybe I had low energy. I honestly played those lines as well as I could,” he told Letterman. Franco also tackled the rumors that he was supposedly high during most of the telecast. "People said I was under the influence. I've thought about it. I think I know why. I love her, but Anne Hathaway is so energetic, I think the Tasmanian Devil would look stoned standing next to Anne Hathaway." Couldn’t have said it better myself. [Star Pulse]

Adam Lambert Booted from Lady Gaga’s Birthday Bash

A rowdy Adam Lambert was ejected from Lady Gaga’s recent 25th birthday celebration. The American Idol runner-up attended the party at Los Angeles restaurant La Cita (he was apparently a guest of the Scissor Sisters). According to Us magazine Lambert punched a hole in the restaurant’s ceiling and was acting sloppy. A witness said, “Adam acted like an animal. He kept jumping up on the tables and chairs and screaming.” Adam then proceeded to “serenade” Lady Gaga and attempt to feed her birthday cake. Gaga quickly then contacted security and he was escorted off the premises. [Us magazine]

Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel has hit back at criticism she is too skinny. Concerns were raised over the model’s weight following an appearance at the lingerie company’s 2011 spring swimsuit collection. She told People magazine, “I am healthy and happy. I'm heartened to know how much everyone cares about me, but in this case, everything is normal and good.” Swanepoel says her small frame is due to her hectic work schedule, saying, “I've been traveling around like crazy. I get skinnier if I'm very busy.” Candice, it might be time to slow down a little. [People]

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Next Job Is…

Since leaving his post as the Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger has officially announced that he'll be playing a cartoon superhero version of himself, working alongside comic book legend Stan Lee. According to reports, Schwarzenegger is developing a character literally called The Governator. “When I ... started hearing people talking about ‘the Governator,’ I thought the word was so cool,” Schwarzenegger said. The Governator is planned to be both a comic book and an animated series that Arnold apparently "combines the governor, the Terminator, the bodybuilding world, [and] the True Lies." This should be an interesting one, guys. [EW]
