We weren’t crazy about Jennifer Aniston‘s red Valentino gown at the Oscars, but we do love the reason she picked it!

It was apparently very practical, especially for when nature called!

The actress said of the dress:

“It fits, it’s comfortable and it’s easy to pee in. You just lift, hoist and do a couple squats!”

Ha! That’s quite the visual!

And fiance Justin Theroux loved it for being “Valentino red,” and probably appreciated not having to lend a hand for when his better half had to go to the ladies’ room.

Good thinking, Jen!

Though Jennifer Lawrence tripped all over her Christian Dior gown at the Oscars, Marion Cotillard showed off her excellent balance in another gorgeous Raf Simons creation.

The actress wore sparkly Louboutins and the black & white striped Dior gown we also recommended for JLaw to the Cesar Film Awards in Paris on Friday night.

And the more mature face of the brand definitely did the beautiful dress justice in a very modern-day Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina sort of way!

If there’s anyone that really makes us nostalgic for old Hollywood, it’s truly Marion!

Film critics around the globe have all casted their predictions for Sunday’s Oscars, but what about Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi?

As a cinephile, the Snooki & JWoww star told Celebuzz who she thought would be taking home an Academy Award when she stopped by our Hollywood studio this week.

For the award for Best Supporting Actress, the 25-year-old predicted that Anne Hathaway – who has already won a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award will take home the Oscar for her role of Fantine in Les Miserable.


“Because she played a prostitute. She’s gorgeous, and she’s a really good prostitute,” she quipped.

As for the top prize of Best Picture, Snooki said she wants Ben Affleck and his film, Argo, to win.

“I just watched it and I thought it was amazing,” she said. “Plus, I’m a big fan of Ben Affleck and I think he did an amazing job of directing it.”

“I thought it was such a good movie. I was tense and on my feet the entire time. I honestly think the award should go to Ben Affleck [and] Argo.”

Well, she did say she wanted him to direct her “porno” as well.

Watch Snooki predict the rest of the Oscars in the video, above.
