"That's the only time in my life I ever felt different for having sisters in the public eye. People would knock on my door and be like, 'I heard there was a party here', just because they knew that I lived in that room. It was so weird."

- Elizabeth Olsen on being the Twin's sister and the problems it caused while she was at NYU

Which Disney Tween Star Starts College This Fall?

Filed under: Exclusives!Disney

cole-sprouse-nyu.jpg

That would be one of the twinsies living the sweet suite life!

A Perezilicious reader who will be starting her freshman year at NYU in the fall (Yay!) sent us this picture of herself with Cole Sprouse during their orientation. According to our reader, Cole is enrolled in the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, which makes sense considering his, um, fame.

We're always happy to see a young person better themselves with an education, especially one who spent their whole lives without going to a normal school. Hope you take advantage of this opportunity, Cole.

Wait a tick … Where's Dylan????

Dakota Fanning Is Going To College!

Filed under: InspirationDakota Fanning

Dakota College

That's fantastic to hear, because education is so important regardless of fame!

According to Elle, Dakota's younger sister, Dakota will be attending college soon — and has even been spotted touring NYU and east coast schools!

Here's a little of what Elle said:

"I'm in middle school, so I'll be going into eighth grade. We go to the same school, and I also wanna go to college and she's going to college."

With the amount of shizz Dakota has been able to accomplish before she even graduated High School, we have no doubt that college won't be much of a chore for her!

Good luck, Dakota! And Elle, keep up all the great work! You have such potential!

Yay For School Spirit! Alec Baldwin Reportedly Dating Recent NYU Grad

alec baldwin reportedly dating recent nyu grad

He graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts all the way back in 1994, and he's STILL bleeding violet…or at least he's dating violet. Ha!

Sources says that Alec Baldwin is dating 2007 NYU grad Hilaria Thomas, who is currently the Yoga Vida studio director in NYC.

The two were spotted with each other at Carnegie Hall's 120th anniversary after-party at the Plaza back in May.

Here's what a source had to say about them:

"He's really into her. He's taking her to the Tonys."

And here's what Hilaria had to say about the dating claims:

"I'm not going to answer these questions."

And on a lighter note, here's what Alec's rep said when asked about it:

"He's actually been dating Russell Brand down in South Florida."

Hmm…we DID see that pic of Russell and Alec! Cute couple if you ask us!

Do U think Alec Baldwin is expressing his NYU pride by dating Hilaria Thomas? Or is he ACTUALLY dating Russell Brand behind Katy's back? LOLz.

James Franco Puts On His Dancing Shoes To Direct Dance Theater

Filed under: James Franco

james-franco-directing-dancing-show.jpg

Are you surprised? Why are you surprised? There is literally nothing this guy could do that would shock us anymore. He is a virtuoso, people, pure and simple. He has a love and gift with the arts and he's going to express it in every medium humanly possible.

Over the weekend, James Franco will make his debut as a dance theater director for the upcoming multimedia show "Collage," at NYU.

The show is described as a "mixed-media piece that uses sound and visuals to play with the idea of how different art mediums interact," according to producer John Morrow. He adds:

"Using video, dance, poetry, theater and music, we have created a performance that will be an engaging experience for the audience."

Hmm. Funny how he couldn't muster up being this engaging at the Oscars this year. Bet that audience would've LOVED to have seen him dance, sing, hell read poetry.

Just saying!

From Student To Teacher! James Franco To Teach Grad Class AT NYU!

Filed under: Film FlickersJames Franco

james franco to teach class at nyu

Tischies, rejoice!

James Franco has announced that he'll be teaching a third-year grad class on "adapting poetry into short films" at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.

Given his background and role as poet Allen Ginsberg in 2010's Howl, this class def sounds like it's right up his alley.

Here's what chair of Tisch's grad film program John Tintori had to say about Franco's class:

“He’s here to teach because he really knows something about directing that he can share with our students. He’s incredibly prolific, and that comes from a real work ethic - and that’s another thing to impart to our students.”

Sounds like a wonderful class! We're sure it will be a great experience for the lucky students who get to take it!

Tisch peeps - sign up fast! He's only taking 12 students!

Would U like to take a class with James Franco?
