Some stars are known for their summer blockbusters and Oscar-winning performances, but if you look more closely some of these famous stars are also notorious for their tax troubles with the IRS. One may even come to believe that there’s an obvious lack of communication between many celebrities and their accountants- so who’s making the big financial blunder which results into a tax evasion case?

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 »
Bono is the latest star to enter surgery. According to U2.com, he went in today for emergency back surgery because of an injury related to U2 360° tour training. He’ll spend a few days in a Munich hospital, then recuperate at home. As a result, the Salt Lake City show originally scheduled for Jun 3 has been postponed. Ticket holders can choose to wait for info about a replacement tour date. The show is the final U2 360° show in N. America.
Stars on the verge of a nervous breakdown? Well Cele|bitchy quotes a print edition of In Touch, which says that Britney Spears had some sort of meltdown on Mother’s Day, which possibly had something to do with some argument with boyfriend Jason Trawick. The end result was that she and her kids missed a private viewing of Mickey Mouse and Disneyland, and she cut off so much of her hair that her toilet was blocked. She apparently also paid $5K for some strange butt tattoo. So Britney had a meltdown but maybe not quite a nervous breakdown. On the other, popstar Adam Ant, now 55, lost it and went on some tirade about Christians and has since been admitted to hospital under some British Mental Health Act.
Bret Michaels has had a rough year, returning to hospital this week after suffering a stroke not longer after being released from his previous brain hemorrhage. But he’s determined to move on and even be on the finale of Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday, May 23rd. You ask me, he’s crazy for not resting, but the man is a survivor, considering that he’s been Type 1 Diabetic since at least 6 years of age, was hospitalized in early April for acute appendicitis, and survived the brain hemorrhage.
I’ve been pretending that Kendra Wilkinson doesn’t exist, but when an aspiring starlet whores herself out as much as she has been, a motormouth like myself eventually has to say something. Well Kendra, a former Playboy playmate who’s been in the news lately for her sex tape “scandal” (oooh, like no one has ever done a sex tape before), apparently has a second sex tape, this time with a woman. The whore starlet entrepreneur Kendra is said to be getting $100K plus 50% of sales of her first sex video, which comes out for your self-pleasuring pleasure at the end of May. This second video’s release date has yet to be determined.
I’ve heard of certain foods being aphrodisiacs, but Nicholas Cage seems to take diet choices to bit of an extreme. Apparently he only eats the meat of animals that have sex in a fashion he approves of. Ok, sure.
When people started teasing Nicolas Cage for being too old, we didn’t think he’d take it seriously!
According to TMZ, the 46-year-old actor just purchased a 9-foot tall pyramid-shaped tomb built in a New Orleans cemetery, “with the expectation that it will be his final resting place.” Check out the photo of his future resting place here. Perhaps he was inspired by his movie National Treasure.
It’s a bit disturbing that he invested in property at this period in his career. Nic is facing a $14 million tax bill on top of a lien on his real estate holdings and another $6.7 million that he owed from 2008. He is also currently embroiled in a legal battle with his former business manager Samuel Levin, whom he has blamed for causing his money woes.
Gasp! I’m sorry, Nic, but this look isn’t working for you at all! We spotted the 46-year-old actor promoting his new movie The Sorcerer’s Apprentice at the 2010 WonderCon in San Francisco with a longer, blonder mane.
He told the press that his “surfer hair” is for a new role he’s working on. “I’m doing a movie called Drive Angry and I’m trying to tap into my Celtic roots, so I dyed it blond,” he explained.
And since the movie is going to be filmed in 3D, we’ll get to see his new ‘do in every dimension!
Don’t they have professional hairstylists to do his hair for the movie? By the looks of it, it seems like Nic bought cheap dye from Walmart and went DIY. Somebody help him!
Our condolences go out to Nicolas Cage and his family. His father, August Coppola, the brother of famed filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, passed away on Tuesday due to a heart attack. He was 75 years old.

That scary looking dude beside Nicolas Cage is his son Weston. He looks like he’s going to front a Swedish death metal band… or eat the neighbor’s cat.
