Many people know Jon Stewart for one thing and one thing only: his long-running hosting gig on The Daily Show. While his sardonic political commentary is enough to make him an unforgettable entertainment legend, let’s not forget that Jon has in fact had employment elsewhere. We know it’s hard to believe, and even Jon himself poked fun at his unmemorable repertoire while hosting the 78th Academy Awards in 2006. “Tonight is the night we celebrate excellence in film, with me, the fourth male lead from Death to Smoochy. Rent it,” he joked. Let’s also not forget his riveting performance in The First Wives Club — which was later deleted — and his portrayal as Adam Sandler’s roommate in Big Daddy.
While it’s safe to say Jon Stewart may not be a draw at the box office, we are happy to say that he is a huge hit on the small screen. But a good rule of thumb in showbiz is: “Never forget where you came from, otherwise you’ll never remember where you’re going.” So in honor of his 50th birthday, we decided to pay homage to the career before the career, when his hair was a little less gray and his name a little less well known. We hope you enjoy it!

It’s been three years since Snooki and her famous poof arrived at the Jersey Shore, and our world was forever altered. The reality star has had lot to celebrate this year: a new baby, a fiancé, tons of endorsement deals and now her 25th birthday. Who would have ever thought the tan Poughkeepsie native would hold such a permanent place in the hearts of Jersey Shore fans?
Now she’s all grown up and moving on to bigger and better things, but we hope she doesn’t chill out too much. We have a funny feeling we won’t have to worry about that, though. In honor of her quarter century making this planet a little more orange, we would like to look back at some of her most insane moments! And while we hope there are more to come we are definitely going to enjoy watching this somewhat toned-down guidette take over the world!

Calvin Klein is one of the most iconic American fashion designers of our time. His eternal minimalistic looks have graced some of biggest red carpets and have been worn by some of the biggest celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Sandra Bullock, and Julia Roberts. It’s hard to imagine that it all started 44 years ago in a small coat shop in the York Hotel right here in New York City when Klein founded Calvin Klein Limited with only $10,000. Today the famed designer is turning 70 and we’re pretty sure it’s safe to say that was $10,000 well spent!
Besides being awarded time after time for his fashions, the designer has also been accredited for many of his risqué ads, especially in the 80’s and 90’s. Who could forget Brooke Shields and her famous line “”You wanna know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.” And don’t even get us started on the the uber sexy ads that featured a young Mark Wahlberg and Kate Moss. Calvin Klein has indefinitely jump-started many careers, so in honor of his 70th birthday we give you the 10 hottest celebs who have famously rocked a pair of CKs in print. Enjoy!

Politically active celebrities are flocking to the polls in droves today to vote for their 2012 presidential picks, but they’re also taking to twitter to make sure everyone else rocks their right to the big V. While some folks like Donald Trump and Mariah Carey are posting pics of themselves actually doing the deed, others like Eva Longoria and Lady Gaga are simply showing their support for their candidates via tweet. In the weeks leading up to the election we’ve seen some pretty crazy endorsement stunts come out of the Hollywood community. Remember Snoop Dog/Lion’s instagram or Clint Eastwood’s chair? But it seems like today celebrities are leaving the political smashing and bashing behind and just encouraging us all to just get out there and vote it up. So no matter who you’re voting for make sure you get up, get out, and let your voice be heard! But before you hit the polls, take a look at how some of our favorite celebs are spending their Election Day. Find out in the gallery below!
OK, so we all know by now that Amanda Bynes isn’t having the best year. Between her DUI drama and her recent dressing room shenanigans in the media, she’s looking more and more like her hot mess celeb-peer Lindsey Lohan. With so much weirdness going on in the star’s life, it’s hard to choose which strange happening to pay tribute to. After a lot of thought, we decided to go with the extra weird pipe smoking, Baja Fresh eating Home Depot shopping escapade she went on in L.A. a few weeks back. We still haven’t figured that one out. There are so many unanswered questions about her activities. And it’ll be a great Halloween party conversation starter if you dress as her! It’s easy, all you need is a few props!

Kim Kardashian and her impossibly round backside are clearly taking over the world one exploit at a time, and we can’t bring ourselves to look away! It’s been almost six years since this reality star(s) busted out on the scene thanks to the sex tape she made with former boyfriend Ray-J. Then Kim and her derriere landed in more respectable households with the E! series Keeping Up With the Kardashians. There haven’t been any more X-rated leaks, but Kim has literally bared it all in front of the cameras: From, her brief relationships with NFL star Reggie Bush and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin to her even briefer 72 day marriage to … what’s his name again? Oh yeah, Kris Humphries, and now her six-month and counting relationship with rapper Kanye West. We have even had the privilege of seeing Kimmy from the inside out when she had an X-ray performed on season 6 of KUWTK to prove that her big ol’ booty is in fact real! The 32-year-old has seriously her hand (and rump) in just about everything you can think of. From endorsement deals, to her own perfume and fashion lines, everywhere you turn it seems like Kim and her well-endowed backside are not far behind. So in honor of her 32nd birthday, we ‘re counting down the star’s most bootylicious looks!

We’ve all been there: You bring your new boyfriend/girlfriend home, and the first thing Mom does is whip out the baby book. Before you know it, a picture of yourself on the “potty” or in the bathtub stark naked is staring back at you. Well now Throwback Thursday has taken the power to humiliate out of Mom’s hands and given it back to us! Thanks to the magic of social media, we’re now able to pick and choose what baby pictures everyone will see, and many celebs have been jumping on the kid pic bandwagon.
The Kardashians clearly have the monopoly on this trend, posting bucket loads of old adorable photos to their twitter feeds. But other celebrities have also been getting in on the fun and sharing some pretty cute pics of themselves as little ones. Rihanna dug out some excellent vintage pix when she was visited her grandmother’s house in Brooklyn recently, and Snooki tweeted a pic of her “crazy ass” as a kid earlier this week.
These classic shots are a sight to behold. You would never guess that some of these super-stars went through an awkward stage, but some of them sure did! Although others have clearly been fabulous since the day they were born. So in honor of this Thursday ritual we’ve dug up some pretty adorable (and some kind-of embarrassing) childhood pictures of some of our favorite celebs. Enjoy!

Kate Winslet: Glamorous silver-screen siren and red-carpet head-turner. The lady is in a class of her own. But she wasn’t always so stylish! It’s hard to remember Kate not always looking as stunning as she does now, but she rocked some seriously hideous looks back in the day. Yes, this Oscar winner once had a penchant for looking like a train wreck? To be fair, the ’90s and early 2000s were a rough time for everyone when it came to fashion, but some of these are defenseless! We are so glad that with time and age, this classic beauty has gained some fashion sense and left the lace body suits and leather halter dresses behind. Kate has really stepped her game up these days and has grown into a fashion force to be reckoned with! But for now, let’s look back, laugh and relive the memories. In honor of Kate’s 37th< birthday, we’ve lovingly assembled a list of her 20 most unfortunate outfit choices of all time. Enjoy!

Expelliarmus! There go Emma Watson’s clothes. Just kidding! But studious Hermione Granger would have her knickers in real twist if she caught a glimpse of what her real-life-counterpart has been rocking lately. The 22-year-old star has really been pushing the fashion envelope in recent years, appearing on the cover of styles mags like Glamour showing off her smoldering new look. Earlier this month, she attended the L.A. premiere of her new film The Perks of Being a Wallflower in a barely-there dress that was moments away from a “wardrobe malfunction.” She wears even less on the set of her new movie Bling Ring, where Watson rocks a fierce tramp stamp.
While we can’t deny that Emma usually keeps it classy, we love to see her show off her hot bod. She’s sure come a long way from Hogwarts! Even though the cape and striped tie may still work for Halloween, we prefer some of Emma’s bolder looks. So in honor of Emma Watson’s new film opening nationwide today, we give you her 20 scandalous looks that would make Hermione blush. Enjoy!

Hilary Duff turns 25 today, and we are happy to say that she’s looking better than ever. Over the past decade (and then some) we have seen her transform from a preteen princess to a sexy, sophisticated wife and mother. There’s no question that Duff hasn’t always been on trend when it comes to fashion, especially during her Disney days, but the star somehow managed to escape her squeaky clean image and has become a full-fledged hot mama! The freshly minted 25-year-old is enjoying her family life, but let’s face it, it’s time for her to get back to work. That’s why we were thrilled to hear that she has signed a talent/development deal with 20 Century Fox TV, in which she will star in a “half-hour comedy vehicle.” We can’t wait! And if it’s half as funny as Lizzie McGuire it will totally be a hit. So in honor of her b-day we take a look back at some of the star’s best looks throughout the years. Enjoy!
