Happy Birthday, Tom Felton! Celebrate With Pics Of His Hairvolution

View Photo Gallery

Tom Felton turns a ripe old 27 today — so, yeah, Harry Potter fans, you’re going to be middle-aged soon. That also means it’s been years since he’s had to bleach his hair that awful Draco Malfoy blond. Sorry, some of you were perhaps drawn to that ‘do, in all its evil glory. We can’t really imagine spending our entire adolescence defined by such a distinctive style. (Though there are probably some perks that made up for it.)

The Fault In Our Stars Trailer Is Making It Very Hard To Type Through Our Tears

“I can’t picture it as a movie, but I’m also very very close to the story, and I’ve been working on it for 10 years, so for me it’s a novel. But if the right people come along and can picture it that way, that would be awesome,” that’s what John Green told me back in January 2012, on the day his book, The Fault in Our Stars, hit shelves. Well, after seeing the trailer, we are pretty sure that “the right people” came along to turn this devastating book about kids living with (and adamantly not just dying of) cancer.

From 007 To Joe Jonas: Stars Who’ve Trashed The Gigs That Made Them Famous

View Photo Gallery

We were tickled to read yet another instance of George Clooney feigning embarrassment over his Batman nipples during his Reddit Ask Me Anything chat yesterday — but however much he laughs about his superhero costume, the guy has never stooped to talking trash about his days on The Facts of Life. Not everyone has been so gracious about the jobs that made them famous, however. Sometimes, with good reason — Joe Jonas‘ revealing chat with New York magazine last year made the Disney machine seem miserable, for instance. Others just sound petty (lookin’ at you, Sean Connery).

Daft Punk’s Grammy Helmets + Other Great Moments In Celebrity Masks

View Photo Gallery

Be honest, wasn’t there a point during last night’s Grammys when you thought the Daft Punk robots just might be so moved by their winning streak that they’d pull off the helmets and actually TALK to us? Well, OK, we’re happy they left the thank-yous up to Pharrell and his hat — because there is something extra alluring about the oxymoronic nature of a famous person in a mask. And also something even more rewarding about seeing them UNmasked. You can enjoy both in our gallery here.

Close Calls! Broken Celebrity Engagements We’re Happy About In Hindsight

View Photo Gallery

As much as we are truly enjoying every scrap of a rumor about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding, we’ve also been following these stories long enough to know that diamonds aren’t necessarily forever. We’ve lost count of how many celebrity relationships have perfect fairy tale engagements without ever making it down the aisle. But guess what? Sometimes that’s a GOOD thing. If you’re dreading this upcoming Valentine’s season (it started early this year, didn’t it?) we invite you to take heart: Sometimes cold feet can lead to better futures. Just ask Miley Cyrus, or any of the other celebrities on this list of 15 couples who called it all off.

Kim Kardashian + Adam Sandler’s PJ Party: This Week’s Worst-Dressed Celebrities

View Photo Gallery

Our job creating this Worst-Dressed List is so much more difficult when every celebrity on the East Coast AND at Sundance is hiding their wild style impulses under puffy jackets. We are SO looking forward to the wackiness the Grammys will bring this Sunday. That’s not to say some our favorite risk-takers didn’t let us down — Kim Kardashian was in Paris again; need we say more? — plus there were a few golden (terrible) moments at the SAG Awards, the Producers Guild Awards and (sigh) in Erica Mena’s lobby.

Happy 50th Birthday, Mariska Hargitay! Celebrate With These Vintage Foxy Photos

View Photo Gallery

Mariska Hargitay is such a badass on Law & Order: SVU and such an incredible force for good in real life, that sometimes we forget her earlier years as a bombshell beauty. Silly us — she is, after all, the daughter of original blond bombshell Jayne Mansfield and bodybuilder Mickey Hargitay. Today, as the actress turns the big 5-0, we’re looking back at some vintage foxy photos of Mariska.

A Serious Minute: New Doc Bordering on Treason Shows The Iraq War Through A Different Lens

We’re going to take a quick break from our usual weighty discussions of Kardashians and red carpet fails and Kardashian red carpet fails to point you in the direction of a new documentary making the rounds at film festivals this winter, Bordering on Treason. The film by Trish Dalton follows photographer Lorna Tychostup — who, full disclosure, also happens to be the mother of former VH1 staffer Lacey Seidman —  as she documents the lives of civilians in Iraq from the days just before the war until the recent withdrawal of troops.

The Craziest (And Worst) Awards Show Outfits Of All Time

View Photo Gallery

If you love watching celebrities making spectacles (and spectacular disasters of themselves) THIS is the most wonderful time of the year: We’re still chuckling to ourselves over the Golden Globe Awards disasters and gleefully looking forward to the Grammys and the Oscars. As we count down the hours to red carpet glory, we thought we’d take a second to think back fondly at the moments when stars and their stylists took their desire to make headlines a little TOO far. As in, Bjork, most people remember your 2001 Oscar swan gown better than anything you ever sang…

MLK Day Movie Marathon: A Guide To The Most Entertaining, Least Preachy Movies About Race

On this Martin Luther King Day, we hope you’ve already taken the time to meaningfully commemorate the late civil rights leader. (Go volunteer or something, then come back to this post; we’ll wait.) We’re probably not your first source for guidance in that matter. We do, however, think we can help make the day enjoyable without being too shallow. Movie marathon time!
