With the 2013 Oscars less than a month away, Vanity Fair has rolled out its 19th Hollywood Portfolio, covered by Ben Affleck, Emma Stone, and Bradley Cooper and featuring more than 75 Hollywood stars shot by famed photographer Bruce Weber.
The special issue is filled with talent—of both the two- and four-legged variety, including Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, Amy Adams and Jonah Hill, Selena Gomez and Alan Arkin, and Tai, the star of Water for Elephants.
The academy’s youngest-ever best-actress nominee Quvenzhané Wallis also appears on the cover gatefold along with Olivia Wilde, Kerry Washington, and Eddie Redmayne.
The photoshoots, styled by Jessica Diehl, were held at various historic Hollywood locations—including back lots, soundstages, the Beverly Hills Hotel, Musso & Frank Grill, and the old Marion Davies estate.
Vanity Fair adds that while the photographer was staging record producer Quincy Jones and three of his daughters –Rashida, Kidada, and Kenya — they were asked to sing song they all knew.
They chose Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” from his 1982 release, Thriller, which Quincy produced.
