Oscars 2003

Candid Cameras

What's it really like to be a star during Oscars week? To find out, America Online asked a few to document their doings; the resulting snaps are posted online (keywords: Celeb Candids) through March 31. (For each shot used, AOL is making a donation to U2 singer Bono's charity DATA, which fights poverty and AIDS in Africa.) Meryl Streep captured herself mugging with Oscar joke writer Bruce Vilanch, Diane Lane shot her Best Documentary Feature presenter's speech, Adrien Brody posed with just about everyone. But Colin Farrell, living up to his reputation as Hollywood's hardest partyer, got the liveliest shots. Making the scene at the post-Oscars bashes with one of his two older sisters, Claudine, and friend (his word) Kim Bordenave, who is 3½ months pregnant with his child (Excited about impending fatherhood? "Big time," said Farrell), he flirted, smoked and drank into the wee hours. "As long as it has alcoholic content," he told a bartender at the Kodak Theatre, "I'm all right." ("Next stop: rehab," joked Steve Martin before introducing him during the ceremony.) Will Farrell remember every moment? Maybe not. But he'll always have the pictures.
