Monday gossip roundup: Jennifer Lopez’s people say there was no Oscars ‘nip slip’

Entertainer Jennifer Lopez arrives at the 84th Annual Academy Awards held at the Hollywood & Highland Center on February 26, 2012 in Hollywood, California.

They first fell for each other while making a movie together, so it was just a matter of time before Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie teamed up again on screen. And now the Hollywood power couple is looking for another project. “We’re talking about it. We have an idea,” Jolie tells E! News, adding that it won’t be a “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” sequel — or a comedy at all, most likely. “We don’t know how funny we are.” In fact, they might not be playing lovers in any way. “You never know what you want to see an actual couple do,” says Jolie. “Sometimes it’s better if they’re not a couple.”

While most might not think so, Anne Hathaway insists she can relate to a particularly troubled young starlet. “Lindsay Lohan and I have more in common that people think,” Hathaway tells the Sun. “We’ve all done things we shouldn’t. It is just that I did stuff at college when nobody knew about it, so I’m not a saint. I wasted time doing self-destructive things.” And exactly what sort of self-destructive things are we talking about here? “I found you can only dance on so many tabletops,” Hathaway says. “I got all that out of my system and I am healthy and grounded.”

Many eagle-eyed were convinced they caught Jennifer Lopez having a wardrobe malfunction while presenting at the Oscars, but her stylist, Mariel Haenn, insists there was no nipple-baring. “The dress fit perfectly to her every inch. There were cups built in and there’s no chance that there were any, how do you say? ‘Slips,’” Haenn posted on Twitter. “While the dress did give the illusion of sheer-ness, joke’s on everyone who wishes they saw something.”

Angelina Jolie’s much-buzzed-about Oscar moment — thrusting her bare leg out of her black dress —  was quickly imitated by “the Descendants” screenwriters Jim Rash and Nat Faxon, but the scribes insist they weren’t mocking the actress. “She’s supremely hot,” Faxon said backstage at the awards show, while Rash was quick to explain his actions: “I just saw her pose and I thought, you know what, we have exactly the same legs,” the “Community” star said. “It was more like, oh, she’s standing, great, I’m going to stand like that, too.”

Lucy Lawless was one of seven Greenpeace protesters arrested after a 77-hour protest aboard a Shell-owned oil-drilling ship, according to Us Weekly. “This chapter has ended, but the story of the battle to save the Arctic has just begun,” Lawless said in a statement. “We will continue to stand in solidarity with the communities and species that depend on the Arctic for their lives until Shell cancels its plans to drill in this magical world, and makes the switch to clean, sustainable energy.” The protesters were charged with burglary, though the environment organization insists no property was was taken or damaged.

Kevin Federline is determined to keep his two sons with Britney Spears grounded — even if it means working in fast food. “I’ll have them working at Micky D’s. That’s how we had to do it. I worked at a car wash. I worked at a pizza place. Things like that made me,” Federline tells Australia’s Herald Sun. “Sean and Jayden have missed out on so much of that with me and their mom being so busy all the time. Now we’ve both agreed that this is it, they are going to be at school and learn what it’s like to be part of society as normal kids.”
