Vanity Fair Hollywood Cover

Standard

vanity-fair-hollywood-issue-cover-zoomEvery year I look forward to Vanity Fair’s Hollywood issue, especially the cover. Usually there’s a lot of hue and cry over it, because it doesn’t have non-whites on the cover. This is the first year that it does–two! (I speak of only the left-third of the three panels, which is the only one visible on newsstands). In fact, there are six non-whites on this year’s entire cover.

Of course, this is a testament to an actor’s publicist, and you can see who has the least powerful–Lea Seydoux–shoved all the way over to the right.

About Jackrabbit Slim

Location: Vegas, Baby! I’m much older than the other whippersnappers here, a baby boomer. I tend to be more snobbish about film, disdaining a lot of the multiplex fare for “cinema.” My favorite films: Woody Allen’s oeuvre (up until about 1990), The Godfather, The Graduate, A Hard Day’s Night, Pulp Fiction. Politics: Well, George McGovern was my political hero. I’m also a prickly atheist. Occupation: Poised to be an English teacher in Las Vegas. For many years I was an editor at Penthouse Magazine. My role on this blog seems to be writing lots of reviews and being the resident Oscar maven.
