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 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?

gary winick passes away

The world has lost another talented filmmaker at a tragically young age.

Letters To Juliet/13 Going On 30 director Gary Winick has passed away at 49 years old, after a long battle with brain cancer.

Winick contributed to the film community for his directing & producing efforts, and for launching InDigEnt, an independent film company which was recognized for showing that "digital video production had the capacity to unlock new capacities within short- and low-budget shoots."

He also spent seven years teaching at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.

Thanks for being such a positive contributor/mentor/innovator in the film community, Gary!

Our thoughts go out Winick's family, friends, former students, and peers during this difficult time.
