vanity fair + a-listers = hollywood issue
For their 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 leading men in Hollywood.
The two inside panels feature 11 more stars, from newcomer best-actor/actress nominees Jesse Eisenberg and Jennifer Lawrence to Noomi Rapace, whose stunning performance in the original, Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo propelled her from Stockholm to Hollywood. Joining them are Anthony Mackie, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, Garrett Hedlund, and Robert Duvall. The cover was shot in Los Angeles and New York over the course of two days by photographer Norman Jean Roy.
