Barbara Walters to 'Vanity Fair': 'Do I see myself as a feminist idol? No'

We know Barbara Walters as an intense broadcast journalist who knows how to ask tough questions. But in Vanity Fair‘s new profile of the View co-host, we learn that she’s not very into being on the other side of an interview; in fact, the magazine says that she even offered to write the story herself.

Still, VF did manage to get a few personal tidbits out of Walters, including why the View ladies don’t take pee breaks and the one time Walters broke during a interview.Check out a few highlights below:


'Game of Thrones': Vanity Fair asks the cast who should sit on the Iron Throne -- VIDEO

The little-watched and rarely-discussed HBO series Game of Thrones got the Annie Leibovitz treatment for this month’s Vanity Fair cover, with the cast coming together on the rocky shores of Northern Ireland Westeros for a rare moment of peace/not-actively-trying-to-murder-each-other. Between takes, Vanity Fair asked each cast member who they personally think should sit on the Iron Throne. The answers may surprise you!

Well, one answer won’t surprise you: Lots of people nominate Tyrion, because he’s great. But Jack Gleeson — out of character but still doing his best Joffrey simmering-homicidal glower — thinks Hodor should be in charge. “He’s got good leadership policies,” he say, “And a sound political policy.”

Meanwhile, the somewhat-beloved Emilia Clarke suggests that Daenerys could co-run the country with her devoted attendant Jorah Mormont. “They could have a bum cheek each!” says Daenerys of House Targaryen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons. Disappointingly, nobody nominates Davos Seaworth.* Watch the clip:


'Vanity Fair' Hollywood Issue puts Julia Roberts in Idris Elba's lap; plus, Michael B. Jordan and other breakouts

Once again, it’s time for Vanity Fair‘s Hollywood Issue, an annual star-studded, black-tie affair (well, other than last year). For the issue’s 20th anniversary, photographer Annie Leibovitz brought together actors of all ages, from Oscar veterans to up-and-comers.

Gracing the newsstand cover is Julia Roberts, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Idris Elba, and George Clooney, all clad in their best black blazers. Sadly, Roberts is the only one showing a little skin. However,  if you open up the three-panel foldout, you’ll find more blazers, and even more (female) skin: Jared Leto, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Naomie Harris, Brie Larson, Chadwick Boseman, Margot Robbie, and Léa Seydoux all made the cut.

Overall, I’m really enjoying the range of this cover. 12 Years a Slave? Check. Short Term 12? Also check. Plus, I can’t help but love the retro Hollywood feel. Combine all that with the fact that Julia Roberts is on Idris Elba’s lap and I’m in. Not to mention that I’m dying for any and every photo of Roberts and Clooney being behind-the-scenes besties.

Vanity Fair‘s Hollywood Issue hits stands Friday. What do you think of the cover?

Daniel Day-Lewis as Vincent Vega? 10 things we learned from the 'Pulp Fiction' oral history

As in years past, the cover of Vanity Fair‘s annual Hollywood issue features a couple of beautiful starlets (Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde, who appears as a Josephine Baker-esque dancer in the expanded version of the photo spread) wearing eye-catching outfits.


The 6 reasons we want to be best friends with Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence, you don’t know me. I have never met you. I haven’t even ever seen you. But every time you open your mouth, I’m convinced we must be soul mates. Like that time you admitted to nearly causing a car accident in your pursuit of Honey Boo Boo (few people have my same dedication to trashy reality TV). Or when you boldly revealed that you prefer to spend your days pantsless (who doesn’t?). But you really won me over when you confessed to thinking about your couch while partying (are you reading my mind?). To me, you are perfect.

So when this month’s Vanity Fair declared you “the world’s most desirable woman,” I couldn’t help but stand up and cheer. I cannot count the ways I love thee — there are simply too many. But your candid interview gave me half a dozen reasons more. For those of you who are reluctant to hop on the JLaw bandwagon (and why would you be?), here are six quotes proving why Lawrence is your ideal BFFL.


Louis C.K.'s best responses to Vanity Fair's 'Proust Questionnaire'

What did Vanity Fair think was going to happen?

In its January issue, the magazine invited comedian Louis C.K. to fill out one of its regular “Proust Questionnaires,” a series of questions designed to elicit self-analysis. The questionnaire is a recurring piece in the publication, answered by celebrities and generating responses that run from poetically spare (Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Herman Wouk said the place that made him happiest was “Anywhere with her, while she lived.”) to comically honest (What would Dolly Parton change about herself? “I want really long legs.”). For the most part, the celebrities are pretty game and use it as an opportunity for both serious reflection and self-deprecating jabs. Louis C.K. took a slightly different approach.
