    Neil Patrick Harris may seem like the go-to guy to host award shows these days but he was reportedly not the first choice for the 2015 Oscars. According to The Hollywood Reporter, there were three other people offered the job before him.

    Sources say that producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron supposedly wanted Ellen DeGeneres back for the job but she was not interested in hosting for a third time. Offers were allegedly also made to Chris Rock and Julia Louis-Dreyfus who also passed on the opportunity.

    • Neil has previously hosted the Tony Awards four times and the Primetime Emmy Awards twice.


    Billy Bob Thornton is finally offering up an explanation for Angelina Jolie wearing a vial of his blood around her neck while they were dating. He made the revelation while speaking to the students at Loyola Marymount University's School of Film & Television last week.

    The 59--year-old told the students, "A vial of blood is very simple. Angie came home one day with a kit she bought. You know those lockets you buy that are clear and you put a picture of your grannie in it or something like that and wear it around your neck? That's what it was. She bought two of those. We were apart a lot because she's off making Tomb Raider and I'm making Monster's Ball. We were on opposite ends -- we see each other for two weeks and whatever. She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razorblade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these lockets and you wear it around your neck just like you wear your son or daughter's baby hair in one. Same thing. From that we were wearing quart jars of blood around our necks...and we were vampires and we lived in a dungeon." Billy Bob added, "I think it's your duty to kind of tell people the truth about this stuff and the truth is not encouraged anymore."

    • He and Angelina got married in 2000 but broke up in June of 2002.

    Amy Poehler won't let the superficiality of Hollywood get the better of her. She recently opened up to People about the pressure to look a certain way when you're in the entertainment industry.

    Amy said, "In a shallow business, I just had to come to terms with being really okay with not being...symmetrical. You can either spend your life trying to be perfect, and you can tweak and nip and tuck, and then be afraid to move your face. There's a line between feeling healthy, strong and sexy and feeling good about yourself, and being worried about how you measure up." The Emmy-winner added, "Some days I wake up and I'm just like, 'All right, I'm feelin' really good,' and some days I loathe myself. Just like everyone else. It's so funny because it doesn't matter what you do, whether you have your picture in a magazine or you don't, there are days where you're just feeling it and other days where you look at yourself and say, 'Oh my god, who is that old woman in the store window? Oh my god, it's me!"
