Spokesperson(s) of the Week: Hathaway/Franco

Anne Hathaway and James Franco have careers that are oddly similar. They both had their breakthrough roles on short-lived TV series in the 1999-2000 season (Get Real and Freaks and Geeks, respectively). Both established their box office appeal in family-friendly fare (The Princess Diaries and Spiderman, respectively). Both earned Oscar nomination for performances in small indie films (Rachel Getting Marries and 127 Hours, respectively). And both are co-hosting the Oscars this year.

Another similarity: both became scent spokesmodels in 2008.

Anne Hathaway became the spokesmodel for Lancome’s Magnifique.

And James Franco became the face of Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme.
