The Ellen Barkin Show



It’s usually the nominees who suffer from pre-ceremony jitters, but this year’s CFDA Awards host Ellen Barkin confessed to mild nerves ahead of her Monday night hosting stint. "I told the CFDA that I am not a comedian," said the Ocean’s Thirteen star at last week’s opening of her long-time pal and CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg‘s new store. "I hope they don’t make me do any jokes because I’ll probably mess them up." Why did she accept the gig? "All my life I’ve turned down hosting offers," said Barkin. "But I can never say no to Diane."
