Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Lively, 25, and Reynolds, 35, surprised fans when they wed in early September. Surprisingly, the couple was able to keep their engagement and subsequent wedding a secret, even from the paparazzi. The two first met when filming the movie Green Lantern in 2011, but they didnt actually start dating until later that year, and only after Reynolds had finalized his divorce with Scarlett Johansen. Lively is most well known for her role on the popular TV show Gossip Girl, while Reynolds has starred in television shows and numerous films, including National Lampoons Van Wilder and Blade Trinity.

With the launch of Madonna’s new range of Aldo shoes and the news that perpetually half-dressed R&B singer Rihanna is to design a collection of clothes next spring for River Island, it is worth remembering that not all celebrities who dip their hand into fashion come out on top. Whilst many celebrities have contributed their name and time to designing clothes or shoes for charitable causes, Kim Kardashian’s SchoeDazzle being amongst such programs, more often than not the lines are launched purely for vanity purposes; something that is reflected by the poor commercial return on these projects.

Choosing new roommates can be a serious gamble. Whether they are your best friend or some random girl you met on Craigslist, you can never be sure if you are going to be living with the roommate of your dreams or trapped with a psycho by a lease that seems like it will never end. Watching reality TV we get to peak in on dozens of groups of housemates every single week. Which reality star would you want to be your next roommate? Here are some of our favorites:
Hulk Hogan (Hogan Knows Best, Micro Championship Wrestling) – Every good group of roommates needs a leader, and who better than the Hulkster himself. He’s a former world champion, a hard-nosed father and a leader of tiny men. Not only will he have your back, but you that know you can trust him. As long as you say your prayers and take your vitamins, that is. Read the rest of this entry »

There is no denying that Al Pacino is one cool dude. His films have stood the test of time.

We’ve all seen actors with their awesome luxury mobile vans that follow them around on film shoots. In Hollywood, almost every actor has their own special touch that makes their vans different from everyone else’s. If you’ve stood there, on set, and watched them disappear into these magical vans, then you’re not alone in wondering what really happens in there.

Even in these cases, these actors have their tastes that these production team members need to satisfy. Read the rest of this entry »
Kim Kardashian has turned non-celebrity longevity into a science. You’d be hard pressed to find any other reality TV star who has enjoyed lasting popularity over doing nothing — well, except for showing that impossibly large butt. But now you can add another achievement for Kardashian, the ability to turn a wedding into both an amazingly extravagant affair, and at the same time earn from it as well. Not that she’s the first one to do it. Remember, Star Jones? But The Kardashian wedding’s extravagance — given that other people footed the bill — is something for the books. If you don’t believe me, just look at this cool infographic on the Kardashian wedding Vs an average wedding from the folks at Brilliance.com. Read the rest of this entry »
Perhaps the only question that you have in your mind right now is why James Dean became a cultural icon. When his film Rebel Without A Cause was released in 1955, he became the picture that the film created. In fact, it was then when James Dean became the cultural icon that people always look up to. After that, he also starred in two more movies which supported his stardom. First was when he played the role of Cal Trask, the loner in the movie East of Eden who featured him as one of the greatest actors of his generation. After that, he played the role of Jett Rink who was the surly farmer in the movie Giant that was released in 1956. He played the leading roles in all three films which pretty much gave him his fame. Moreover, it was in all three films that made him popular that his popularity rests and his early death in a car crash gave him the legendary status that people have learned to deal with.

Glamour and style is big in the celeb world, but even the rich and famous get it wrong sometimes. Even with stylists around them, many A-list stars don’t know how to dress for a specific location or occasion and end up embarrassing themselves terribly.
Check out these horrendous fashion faux pas. Cringe!
Supermodel Naomi Campbell shocked animal lovers everywhere when she was snapped wearing fur after posing for a PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) ad. The star modelled a selection of coats made from Russian saple, as part of a campaign for designer Dennis Basso, whose creations sell for up to $200,000 each. The catwalk beauty is not the only celeb to have been caught out donning animals skins with Madonna, Rihanna and Kanye West all named on PETA’s Worst-Dressed lists.

We all know of the standard insurance policies which cover our day to day lives. We’re constantly exposed to TV adverts of a window cleaner falling from an unstable ladder or an innocent victim receiving whiplash courtesy of a reckless driver. However there is also a world that we’re not exposed to. A world so bizarre that it’s like the twilight zone of insurance claims. It’s incomprehensible to us normal folk as to why these policies exist but it goes that step further to ensuring that our A-list stars are held in a regard on an almost immortal level. But, when it comes down to it, even they realise that we’re all human and so they’ve taken every necessary step to ensure that their vulnerable bodies and lives are protected against the glitz, glamour and pitfalls of a celebrity lifestyle. No win no fee solicitors have truly got their work cut out with this bunch!

While the world of pool both in Europe and across the Pond has had its fair share of heroes like Minnesota Fats, Raymond Ceulemans and Steve “Romford Slim” Davis , the accessibility and enjoyment of the game, far extends from professional tournaments.
Wander into any bar, any pub and you will likely see a pool table sitting in the corner, laughs being shared and bets being wagered. But away from the heady light of pool stardom on the international stage, and the dingy pub setting with stained baize and poor lighting, there is a world of celebrity surrounding the game of pool, one which stretches far back in to the annals of the game’s history.
We all know the famous pool movies, The Hustler and the Colour of Money, which helped to bring the beautiful game into the public eye, largely thanks to the sadly departed Paul Newman. He is the tie between the two movies, the archetypal epitome of cool, but Newman’s love of the game went beyond on-screen set ups and special effects, he actually was a keen pool player.
Newman actually got lessons from Willie Mosconi (yes, the name given to the Mosconi Cup which pits the US against Europe) and current Hollywood giant Tom Cruise, who stared alongside Newman in the Colour of Money, is also a pretty adept player. Not many people may know this, but Mr Katie Holmes is ambidextrous, and while there were obvious continuity errors in the movie (not to mention a huge fashion faux-pas with his adopted hairstyle), Cruise is apparently a pretty dab hand at the sport.
You can scour Hollywood for pictures of famous stars shooting pool, from Brad Pitt, to Nicolas Cage, to Julia Roberts, to John Wayne and Keith Richards (which surely would have been a treat to experience). One of the most famed and revered of all celebrity pool players, was Jerry Orbach of Law and Order fame. There are many tales about his pool and billiards playing, taking money off players in challenges, including an encounter where he beat famed player Cornbread Red without knowing it.
Actor and director Woody Allen is also purportedly a massive fan and player of the game of billiards too. You can just picture him bustling around the table, while Bob Dylan’s sitting in the corner of the room, whistling a tune, as the songster is reportedly a fan of the game as well. The list really does just go on and on, with American Fear Factor presenter Joe Rogan being an avid participant of the game. That image just fits, it really does and it doesn’t even take sheep’s eyeballs to make it work. Just Rogan, a beer, a cigar and a pool table. The list goes on, and some even suspect that the late, great Vincent Van Gogh may have even been partial to a game, but there is no record of it. The rumours are abound because he painted The Night Café, capturing the game in its raw, unadulterated form, a pool table sitting in a dingy bar.
So popular is the game of Pool, that not even the White House can escape its addictive clutches, highlighted in a famous picture involving current incumbent Barack Obama. There is actually a Billiard Room in the White House, which was put there by James Monroe (who was the fifth President of the United States for those counting). So, even the vastness of Pennsylvania Avenue’s most famous address is not without it’s pool hall charm.
There is a certain sense of a President being just a regular Joe as he lines up the nine ball into the corner pocket, brow sweating, heart palpating, all budget problems falling by the wayside. Pool, the great political humbler.
Taking a step further back into history, John Adams, who was the President before Monroe, was so desperate to have a game of billiards that he would be seen knocking his balls around on the floor, just to get some action in. That is the power of pool and billiards, long steeped in history, from Presidents to Hollywood, the click of the ball, the rattling of the pockets is just too irresistible to pass up. Recreational or competitive the allure of game is just hard to deny. The sport in one fashion or another has been around since the 1600’s and long will it remain.
The acting game is big business with box office sales for movies reaching hundreds of millions of dollars around the world. Actors make money from endeavours such as their movies, but also from the sales when the film is released for purchase and other sponsorship deals. Actors literally have hundreds of revenue sources, if they so desire to front a product or service or be part of a project or cause. Here is a countdown of the top 10 richest celebrities.
10 – Adam Sandler
Adam Sandler is worth $29.5million from his successful hits Big Daddy, Click, Mr Deeds and Happy Gilmore. He is one of the world’s best known comedy actors and a strong entrant into the top 10.
9 – Will Ferrell
Will Ferrell has an estimated net worth of $31million for his comedy roles in smash hits such as Blades of Glory and Anchorman. The slapstick actor has done really well for himself making this list, and there is no wonder because it is clear that he is super talented. Read the rest of this entry »
Students at the University of South Carolina can now take a course that will completely focus on Lady Gaga and how she has both become famous and created her own fame. The course is called “Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame” and will be taught by sociology professor Mathieu Deflem this coming spring.
Deflem, a professor whose research and academic interests include criminology and policing, is a proud Lady Gaga fan. According to The Daily Gamecock, Deflem first saw Lady Gaga in concert in 2009 and has since seen her perform 28 times. He once met her in an airport, and now, he says, she recognizes him.
It’s a well known fact that to cut it in Hollywood you need a megawatt smile. But as celebrities often play their cards close to their chest when it comes to cosmetic procedures, it requires some super sleuthing and a couple of ‘before’ photos to work out whether in fact mother nature blessed them with great genes, or if they have had a helping hand in pursuit of the perfect pearly whites.
Here we take a look at some famous faces who have spent more than their fair share of hours in the dentist’s chair… Read the rest of this entry »
