Oscar co-hosts, Anne Hathaway and James Franco lead the pack, along with Hathaway’s Love and Other Drugs co-star, Jake Gyllenhaal and the unlucky in love and other drugs Ryan Reynolds on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s 17th annual Hollywood Issue. The special issue features the best and brightest of young Hollywood. And Robert Duvall. He’s the creepy old bartender peeking out over Mila Kunis‘s arm as she completely owns this photo.

Goldilocks and the 3 Beards: Vanity Fairs Hollywood Issue

Joining the other kids are, from left to right: Oscar nominee, Jennifer Lawrence looking like a wintry bone in her thigh-high-slit gown; Anthony Mackie has a nice seat between Lawrence and the scantily-clad Olivia Wilde in what looks like one of J. Lo‘s cast-offs from 10 years ago; other Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg cozies up to the bar to act as Mila’s arm rest while my future ex-husband Joseph Gordon-Levitt channels the ghosts of the Rat Pack; Eisenberg’s Social Network co-star and newly minted Spider-Man (luckily not the one in that Broadway disaster) Andrew Garfield straddles the bar next to his other Facebook friend, Rashida Jones, who, gorgeous in a leopard-print gown, is feeding, of all things, a baby leopard; rounding out the stellar line-up are hunky Tron-vict, Garrett Hedlund and dragon-tattooed girl, Noomi Rapace.

Norman Jean Roy captured the 15 actors over a two-day shoot in New York and Los Angeles. Video of the scene behind the shoot follows.

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester dot brathwaite at gmail
