I asked “Big Love” star Ginnifer Goodwin where she was when she heard she’d scored a spot on the cover of Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood issue:

“I was actually in the loo,” she told me at EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund benefit in Beverly Hills, honoring Hilary Swank. "My publicist told me there was conference call. I thought that if it was a conference call, there was bad news and that some horrible tabloid story had broken and that they were bracing me for something,“ Goodwin said. "And they said they had the offer of a cover of a magazine, and I thought great, it’ll be like another Memphis magazine or Organic Eating or something. And they told me it was Vanity Fair and I started crying. I was crying in the bathroom.”
