ANNE HATHAWAY SAYS FAME 'F***ED HER UP'
Anne Hathway admits that it took her a while to come to terms with the whole fame thing. She appears in the October issue of Elle UK where she reveals how she finally moved past her insecurities and adjusted to life in the spotlight.

Anne explains, "This fame thing? F***ed me up for a really long time. I didn't know how to do it; I didn't know how to engage with it; it stressed me out. And people would say, 'You just have to be yourself,' and I was like, 'But I don't know who that is yet!' I've realized that I don't need validation from anybody. At all. I'm not sitting here now worrying, 'What do you think of me?' With all due respect, you seem like a lovely lady, but I don't need you, or anyone else, to like me. And that's so liberating. It's a big reveal, man."

  • The Oscar-winner took a break from Hollywood for a bit following the 2013 awards season. She explained to Huffington Post back in January, "My impression is that people needed a break from me."


SOPHIA BUSH FIGHTS BACK AGAINST ONLINE STALKER
Sophia Bush took to her social media accounts on Monday night (September 29th) to call out her alleged online stalker who has apparently been trolling her comment sections for a while.

The former One Tree Hill star wrote on Instagram, "For the past few months I have been harassed to the point of sheer horror by an online stalker. This person has taken to harassing and bullying many of my followers as well. And tonight I finally said f**k this s**t. This is what I posted to twitter. The photograph is a tiny sampling of over 500 screenshots I've taken in the last three months. And I'm sharing it here to make something very clear. This kind of behavior does. Not. Fly. You do not have permission to hide. Not anymore: This has gotten beyond out of hand. Obsessive. Violent. And legally punishable." Sophia wrote on Twitter, "To any of you who've been targeted by @SophhiaBush, I'm so sorry. I'm sure he/she will be blocked again soon, only to create another account. We're close to 20 now. And law enforcement says "we're on it," and "don't acknowledge this person," but when this person, this vitriolic perverse monster is targeting all of you? Threatening rape, gang rape, & throat slitting to name a few? Impersonating me and breaking some of your hearts? Telling people they should kill themselves, and illustrating how? Nope. No silence. As the evidence of staking and harassment mounts, so does my anger. Because this is grotesque. And on the other side, my sadness mounts as well. What happened to you, you poor lost soul, that this is how you find pleasure? That you need to attempt to destroy little bits of other people to build yourself up, bit by bit? Who in your life hurt you? Who made you need to act out like this? Because my god I feel so sorry for you. But my sorrow in the face of your pain is no match for my anger at the pain you are causing others. You do not have the right to spread poison because you have felt poisoned. It's a small minded and ugly path to take. Choosing to inflict pain doesn't make you strong or powerful. It only proves your weakness and self-loathing. All the time you're taking to verbally harass us, threaten physical assault, and terrorize strangers? Please start spending it in therapy and learn to love yourself. You deserve it. And because none of us deserve one more moment of your bullying bullshit. #gethelp #bullyingisugly #violenceisntfunny #thereisabetterway"

REPORT: AMANDA BYNES IS M.I.A.
Amanda Bynes' location is reportedly unknown since her release from police custody on Sunday (September 28th.) TMZ caught up with her parents, Rick and Lynn, who claimed to not know of their daughter's whereabouts since they were not the ones who bailed her out.

Rick suggested that she went back to New York but sources tell the website that she remains in the Hollywood area. They have supposedly had very little contact with Amanda since their conservatorship ended back in June and she supposedly moved into an apartment in Orange County. Rick also told X17, "She's 28, she does what she wants. We don't know a thing."

  • Some witnesses have come forward saying they saw her behaving erratically at a gym in Thousand Oaks over the summer and more recently at JFK airport in New York trying to get back to L.A.
  • Radar Online also cites a source who claims, "Amanda just stopped going to classes. Everything had been going very well for her up until the conservatorship ended. Her instructors tried to reach out to Amanda, given her history of very public breakdowns, but got no response. As a result, Amanda flunked out. It's really sad, because Amanda had been doing so well." The insider added, "Amanda is smoking pot again, and drinking. She stopped taking her psychiatric medications also. She is absolutely out of control, and having the conservatorship end is probably the worst thing in the world for her."


TRACY MORGAN 'CAN'T BELIEVE' WALMART IS BLAMING HIM FOR CAR ACCIDENT

  • Tracy said in a statement, "After I heard what Walmart said in court, I felt I had to speak out. I can’t believe Walmart is blaming me for an accident that they caused. My friends and I were doing nothing wrong. I want to thank my fans for sticking with me during this difficult time. I love you all. I’m fighting hard every day to get back."

JAMES MARSDEN IS LOOKING FOR HIS JUICY ROLE
James Marsden has had roles in a lot of successful films but he continues to search for that one juicy part. The 41-year-old appears in the new issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine where reveals his career challenges and being more than his pretty boy image.

James says, "When I was younger, I was always going to be cast as the preppy, good-looking guy at school. It was a good thing when I was 19. That helped me get work. Now that I'm 40...I can't get by on my 19-year-old good looks." He continues, "It's been great to be the guy who is viewed as multipurpose, but the only thing that's absent is that defining role. And that's maybe something I'd want to zero in on. My main struggle was I never thought of myself as the cool guy because I wasn't that guy in high school. I see myself more as James Bond's goofy younger brother, as opposed to James Bond. I need to find my Dude!"
