Kathy Landin

Kathy Landin is a freelance internet pop-culture junkie (and web video producer). For a brief time in 2011, she was THIS close to being Charlie Sheen's social media intern for the summer. She's blogged for local TV stations, anonymous dating adventures and stupid advice columns. Mostly she entertains herself by practicing the fine art of idiocy, which you can watch in Kathy Landin's "I'm an Idiot" Show. Or, if you have a short attention span, get 140 characters of idiocy on Twitter.

Anne Hathaway Had to Start Somewhere [VIDEO]

We’re guessing that when a young Anne Hathaway took this phone company commercial job, she wasn’t imagining whom she would thank in her Academy Awards acceptance speech.
