It's that time again: Vanity Fair's Hollywood Issue is about to hit the stands.
For our 17th annual Hollywood Issue cover, Vanity Fair went back to the basics—no teenagers, no penguins, no (full-on) nudity, just the most exciting actors and actresses of the moment. Anchoring the front panel are Oscar co-hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco (himself a best-actor nominee), along with Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal, two of the most versatile, likable (and, yes, good-looking) leading men in Hollywood.
According to the NY Post:
"Modern cinematic glamour by way of 1930s Shanghai was the look Vanity Fair fashion and style director Jessica Diehl planned for the cover of the magazine’s 17th annual Hollywood issue, due on newsstands Thursday. What she didn’t anticipate was Titan the lion cub teething on Rashida Jones’ Tom Ford gown. But the young lion’s appetite was no rival to the ambitions of these fresh Hollywood faces. “We picked 14 actors and actresses who are constantly working and are in the movie theaters now and throughout the year,” says Jane Sarkin, VF’s features editor. And then there’s the 80-year-old man behind the bar. “Everybody was awed,” says Sarkin, “by the presence of Robert Duvall.”
There are some behind-the-scenes photos and a slideshow here.
Don't know if Jake will be in more photos inside, but one hopes he will!
