Nicole Richie speaks about Sparrow but stays away from the subject of her newly announced engagement to Joel Madden, Robert Pattinson reveals his complaint about Twitter, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie take all six of their kids out in Italy!
Robert Pattinson's latest steamy spread is in the pages of March's Vogue, which features cover girl Tina Fey. He struck a few gorgeous poses alongside his Remember Me costar Emilie de Ravin, so make sure to check out the entire spread. The pair shot the photos back in December, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The images are considerably more tame than Robert's recent sexy appearance in Details, and in this interview he opens up about the persistence of Twilight fans and how he handles so much attention. Here's more:
- On the Twilight fans overrunning the set of Remember Me: "It was the most ridiculous experience. You're trying to stay in character and you're trying to walk down the street, but all those people keep reminding you that you're not this character."
- On how Twitter had fans turning up during his hangouts with costar Pierce Brosnan: "Everybody knows where everybody is. The Twitter thing is unbelievable. I went out a couple of times with Pierce. He's totally recognizable, and he makes no effort to tone it down. Some people were glancing over at us in the restaurant, and he just went over and introduced himself. And it does work. It dissipates all the attention."
- On how he handles the attention: "Me? I just crawl under the table."
Tina Fey has the honor of being on Vogue's March cover, though she makes it clear in the accompanying interview that she doesn't consider herself a fashion icon. Her gorgeous photos might indicate otherwise, though — make sure to check out a behind the scene video of her shoot. Tina opened up to the magazine ahead of Date Night's opening on April 9, chatting all about fashion, that Palin impression, being normal, and her amazing year. Here's more:
- On being the poster-woman for normalcy: "I feel like I represent normalcy in some way. What are your choices today in entertainment? People either represent youth, power, or sexuality. And then there's me, carrying normalcy — me and Rachael Ray."
- On one of the highlights from the last year: "Oprah came to my apartment. Oprah and Gayle were in my apartment, and they stayed for hours. It's like the most amazing thing that can happen to a white woman in the twenty-first century."
- On weighing herself: "I don't weigh myself. I just go by if my clothes fit. I try not to participate too much in the incredible amount of wasted energy that women have around dealing with food. I just feel like being healthy is sort of a job requirement to be on TV, and being a writer is so much coping with fatigue and stress, and you just eat. You eat to stay awake."
To promote her upcoming movie, Date Night, Tina Fey entered the lioness's den that is a Vogue fashion shoot. She is the March cover girl, and somehow she manages — again — to sound like nothing more than your favorite wise-cracking friend. Maybe funnier.
On being an icon for female normalcy: "What are your choices today in entertainment? People either represent youth, power, or sexuality. And then there's me, carrying normalcy. . . . Me and Rachael Ray."
On magazines and weight: "People will say, 'Oh, fashion magazines are so bad, they're giving girls a negative message' — but we're also the fattest country in the world, so it's not like we're all looking at fashion magazines and not eating. Maybe it just starts a shame cycle: I'm never going to look like that model, so . . . Chicken McNuggets it is!"
On Sarah Palin backlash: "The weird thing is, when Darrell Hammond or Will Ferrell or Dana Carvey did an impersonation of a president, no one assumed it was personal, but because Sarah Palin and I are both women and people think women are meaner to each other, everyone assumed it was personal."
On the power of clothes: "The impact of fashion is really interesting. I think so much of it is tied into feminism. I am a post-baby boomer who has been handed a sort of Spice Girls' version of feminism. We're supposed to be wearing half-shirts and jumping around. And, you know, maybe that's not panning out. But you can tell different generations of women by whether or not they wear that Hillary Clinton blue power suit or the reappropriated Playboy-symbol necklace worn ironically. I think women dress for other women to let them know what their deal is. Because if women were only dressing for men, there would be nothing but Victoria's Secret. There would be no Dior."

Tyra Banks has always wanted Vogue editor-at-large André Leon Talley to join America's Next Top Model. When she initially proposed the idea, he didn't bite. "At that point, I said no because it was the beginning. I was thinking I wanted to see where it goes," he said. Fourteen seasons later, Talley is on board! Starting March 10, you will be able to see and hear the stylish man give his opinions as a guest judge; he will take the place of J. Alexander, who will now coach strutting to the models. How does Talley's boss, Anna Wintour, feel about his latest gig? "I think his latest adventure sounds like a lot of fun and I look forward to watching him on the program." Do you agree?
I was scared of him! I think a lot of people are scared of him, actually. I don't think I've ever really spoken to him — I'm still scared of him! I'm so shy. But every time I get confirmed there, it's still a big thing. If they ever said to me, 'Eniko, we want you to do our show, but you can't do any other shows,' I would be like, 'Ok!'
>> March 2010 Cover Faces, Revealed —"Not usually one for rocking the boat with its cover choices," as WWD put it, Vogue is, nonetheless, taking a leap for their second biggest cover of the year in March by placing Tina Fey front and center. Other March 2010 cover curveballs abound: Harper's Bazaar went with Kate Moss by Peter Lindbergh — her first cover for the magazine since 2002 — and Glamour has hired Ellen von Unwerth for the first time ever to shoot Victoria Beckham. As for W (Megan Fox), Elle (Keira Knightley), and Teen Vogue (Mia Wasikoswka of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland), they're sticking to their usual bread and butter. [WWD]
