The annual Hollywood Issue cover of Vanity Fair has been revealed with. It's called "The Young and Beautiful"
After the jump I've broken it down into sections so you can see it more clearly... still waiting for a super hi-res version though you can see a fairly good image at Vanity Fair's site. But nothing hi-res enough to print or see faces beautifully large. VF's site links are malfunctioning so you can't yet read about the making of the cover just yet.
But here's blown up images for you... I'm a giver.
Still ascending superstars Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway and James Franco get the cover. The rest of the stars have to settle for the foldout; "The Young and Beautiful" "The Hollywood Food Chain"
On the middle fold we see Jennifer Lawrence and Olivia Wilde sandwiching lucky man Anthony Mackie, Olivia Wilde. Then precursor season fixtures Jesse Eisenberg and Mila Kunis. Love Mila's outfit and placement. Talk about focus pulling.
Although if we're talking about "focus pulling" practically all I can see in this middle section is the headline "When Thelma Met Louise (and Brad): The Making of a Revolutionary Film" YES PLEASE.
I'm not sure if Robert Duvall, peaking between the sultry sloped lines of Mila Kunis's pose and seated Joseph Gordon Levitt make it onto the middle fold or if he's in the crease. But he gets a special credit...
And introducing Robert Duvall as Fritz, the gruff but sage bartender.
But here we see Duvall, JGL, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones (I didn't recognize her! From a distance I totally thought it was Marion Cotillard), Garrett Hedlund and Noomi Rapace. For no good reason at all the the kitty cat doesn't get a credit.
Only time will tell if some of these people are like "who?" in ten years. Investigations of past covers (we used to do those at the old blog) reveal that fortunes vary wildly after this big cover "I'm Hot Right Now!" moment.
Who would you bet on as the 5 biggest stars from this cover come 2019?
They claim these are "just the most exciting actors and actresses of the moment" so who would you say is missing? I mean besides Ryan Gosling...
