HOLLYWOOD IS LIKE HIGH SCHOOLon January 11, 2011 at 9:22 am
According to All Headline News, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are boycotting the Oscars this year because they were offended by co-host Anne Hathaway's impersonation of Holmes when she hosted Saturday Night Live in November.
Quote All Headline News:
A source told the Daily mail, “Tom and Katie don’t want to cross paths with Anne. They used to be friends and took Anne to a Tina Turner concert in 2008 when Anne split up from her boyfriend Raffaello Follieri.”
“Katie feels they were really supportive at a difficult time so she feels let down that Anne took to national TV to make fun of her.”
“Anne didn’t even warn her it was going to be on TV.”
If you missed the sketch in question, Hulu still has it up on their site:
Personally, I thought the impersonation was fairly accurate and I remember it being well-received when reviews of Hathaway's turn as host came in.
This leaves me to wonder, "Exactly how thin-skinned are Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes?" Considering the rest of the world now thinks of Katie Holmes as some kind of brainwashed Stepford Wife, Hathaway's impersonation of her was fairly tame. To me, it came of as much more playful - almost affectionate.
If nothing else, this raises Hathaway's cool-quotient in my book by, like, a million points. Pissing off Tom Cruise for fun and profit? WIN!
What's your take?
