It’s a cliché that if you don’t know what you want to do with your life, you go to law school. This is a very expensive and stressful avenue for “killing time” and hoping a passion pops up. It’s also why many law school students don’t end up using their degree and instead spend years pursuing a field that’s not a right fit. It’s not easy to be a great lawyer, and clients deserve better than someone who scraped by without having their heart in it.
The good news is that sometimes these law degree holders do go on to find their right match: Being a celebrity. Whether it’s acting, music or being a personality, there are quite a few celebrities with law degrees. Here are some of the most famous attorneys in waiting:
This is one celebrity whose law degree has served him well. Author Grisham tried a slew of different jobs from selling underwear to being a plumber’s apprentice before he became one of the most famous living writers of today. However, he had early pursuits of becoming a tax lawyer, but found it too challenging so switch to trial law which has helped form the basis of his legal thrillers. Read the rest of this entry »

Our favorite kind of celebrity is one who uses their stardom for more than just personal ego-growing and advancement; we love the ones who use their celebrity for good causes. What is better, after all, than helping put a spotlight on important issues with one’s fame and fortune?
Today, we list the top five most generous celebrities we know and love. And to all of them, we say: good job!
Miss Swift was named number one on DoSomething.org‘s list of charitable celebrities for both 2012 and 2013. Not only did she donate a cool $100k to the Nashville Symphony instead of throwing a birthday bash for herself, she also gave $4 million for musical education to the Country Music Hall of Fame.
We love that JK Rowling is no longer on Forbes’ Billionaire List- because she’s off the list for being “too generous to charities”. We say there’s no such thing. It’s estimated that, as of 2012, the previously penniless author has donated about $160 million to various charities.
Founder of Virgin, would-be spaceman, and all-around amazing person, Sir Richard Branson is a founding member (together with Nelson Mandela) of The Elders, a group dedicated to human rights. He has also worked with several African charities.
The Star Wars producer used over $4 million of his own money to start the George Lucas Educational Foundation, which helps students. When he sold his stake in Lucasfilm to Disney in 2012, he put all personal proceeds to the same foundation.
Whether you love or hate (or love to hate) Facebook, you can’t deny that founder Mark Zuckerberg has done much good with his own earnings from the enormously successful social network. His donation in 2013 of $970 million to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation was the largest charitable gift recorded that year.
You don’t, of course, have to be a celebrity to be charitable. Nor do your contributions have to be in the billions, millions, or even thousands. As all charities will tell you, every little bit helps. Some charities we believe are worth a look:
…That is, for his role on an upcoming movie!

Eyeglasses have traditionally been associated with nerdy people who are stereotyped as socially challenged. This opinion has changed over the years, however. The truth is that some people wear eyeglasses simply because they need them physically, else they can’t see! More than than that, though, the eyeglasses industry has reached a point that the products have become well designed and fashionable.a
And who better to rock those glasses and serve as models than celebrities?
Of course, eyeglasses are not a one-size-fits all accessory. In order to actually look good wearing them – health reasons aside – you have to know how to choose the frame that fits your face shape best. Seeta Singh, optician at Your Eyes Opticians, explains:
The shapes of faces greatly impacts the styles and shapes of frames to complement one’s face.
An oval-shaped face needs a rectangular frames to shorten and widen the face, while a square-shaped face needs oval and deeper frames to soften the outline of the face. Heart-shaped faces do well with a rimless or semi-rimless to minimize the width of the temple.
While you may not be a Hollywood celebrity, you can choose your eyeglasses to give you that glam look as well. Let’s take a look at bespectacled celebrities that will give you some inspiration.
This is one classy lady we all love not only for her acting but for her ageless beauty. In this photo, she wears frames which are squarish and yet a little round along the edges. This is perfect for her face shape, which is oblong and longish. The shape of the glasses break up the long lines of her face, emphasizing her beauty even more.
Lupita Nyong’o made waves with her performance in 12 Years a Slave, and her public appearances, together with her intelligent speeches, have made her a darling in the eyes of the public. This photo was taken during the MTV Movie Awards night, and her eyeglasses are the perfect example of how the color of the frame makes a difference.
Seeta Singh of Your Eyes Opticians also says that “colors to compliment the skin are also every important – the same frame in the wrong color does not look as good. You try to match the frames to the skin and eyes, as well as the hair. It all comes together when you color code.”
Jennifer Aniston is another celebrity whom we all love, with her pretty face and charming personality. Her face is square-shaped, so the perfect frame for her is something that is wider than the widest part of her face – that balances out the proportion. No one can deny that she is rocking these glasses!
Anne Hathaway’s oval-shaped face is perfectly complemented by this square frame, which also draws attention to her beautiful eyes. Notice the color tones of the frame, which also suits her skin color. If you’re lucky enough to have a similarly shaped face, look for a pair of glasses like this one, and you’re sure to look great!
Scarlett Johansson has a rare diamond-shaped face, which is best paired with top-heavy frames. These include semi-rimless glasses. Why is this the case? These types of frames draw attention to the eyes, which then give the area more width. The result is a more balanced look.
If you want to look great in glasses as these celebrities do, before you go to an optician to have eyeglasses fitted, you may want to determine if the optician is fashion-conscious. Otherwise, you might end up with ill-fitting glasses that don’t complement your face shape, your eye color, and skin color. You also should not hesitate to bring up your preferences – after all, it’s you who’s going to wear those glasses!

The act of dumping a bucket of ice cold water over one’s head is no longer reserved for football coaches. Anyone can do it anywhere. It seems everyone is doing it these days, including a long list of celebrities who are drenching themselves to raise money for ALS research. Sometimes referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS, short for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
The challenge is geared to promoting awareness of the disease and to encourage donations. To date, the association is being flooded with monies earmarked for the cause. Although the challenge first gained media attention in the United States on June 30, 2014 during an airing of the Golf Channel’s “Morning Drive,” it was The Today’s Show’s Matt Lauer who introduced it to mainstream audiences when he accepted the challenge a month later. A special thanks goes out to social media as well for doing what it does best – making things spiral out of control. Read the rest of this entry »
