A lot of focus is always put on how short men in Hollywood are. It’s like the ultimate optical illusion, right? They seem so larger-than-life on screen, but in real life they’re itty-bitty Lilliputs with lifts in their shoes (we’re looking at you, Tom Cruise). The awkward part of the equation? There are a ton of super-tall female stars in celebdom! Pairing Amazonian beauties with legs up to their chins with tiny guys only makes the dudes look smaller — and the women look enormous.
Hence, the lowkey platform man-shoes. And kitten heels for the women. As Nicole Kidman famously quipped on David Letterman, shortly after her divorce, “I can finally wear high heels again!”
Seems unfair. Women should be able to flaunt their height for the sexy-as-hell asset that it is — Napoleon-esque dudes, be damned. From Liv Tyler to Ciara, these 10 lusciously leggy superstars do exactly that. They’re the tallest women in celebdom, and they own it! In unrelated news, we’d like to come back in our next life as Charlize Theron.

Celebs are super-secretive about so much of their personal life — where they live, who they’re dating, whether or not they live with the person they’re dating. But, for some reason, many A-listers are surprisingly candid about one of the most intimate moments in a person’s life: losing their V-card. From Khloe Kardashian to Weezy F. Baby, these stars spill the deets on when they first did the dirty deed.

We totally get that Kim Kardashian wanted to debut a hot new look after giving birth to Nori. But blonde was so not the move. Our lush Armenian goddess now looks like every other bleached babe in L.A. (and very J. Lo circa 2000, besides). She’s certainly not the only star who’s golden locks look unnatural instead of glam. From Katy Perry to Emma Stone, these 20 stars need to accept that blondes don’t always have more fun. Here’s to brunette fabulosity!

With all the Botox, sneaky nips-and-tucks and surprisingly great cosmetic surgery happening in Hollywood, it’s easy for celebs to look youthful, longer. But a handful of stars just naturally look amazingly young. Whether it’s good genes, good makeup or good sex, these A-listers have managed to basically look 20-years-old for ages — and yes, we hate them for it. From Leonardo DiCaprio to Gwen Stefani, check out the most shockingly ageless stars in celebdom!
Scandal’s Olivia Pope and President Grant are in the middle of one of the sexiest — and most flagrantly dead-wrong (hello, he’s still very married to Mellie!) — affairs in TV history. But they certainly didn’t invent the art of scandalous secret love. From Friday Night Lights’ Tim Riggins stealing Lila Garrity from his BFF; to Cersei and Jaime’s twincestuous, extra-marital boning on Game of Thrones; here are the 10 hottest affairs in TV history.

Years ago, when Playboy was just a wee lad mag, the only hotties to grace the cover were mega-busty regular chicks. But something happened in the 80s — celeb culture started to rise to prominence, and bonafide stars like Kim Basinger and Suzanne Somers started posing for the ‘zine. Ever since then, landing a Playboy cover has almost been a right of passage for Hollywood A-listers. From Sharon Stone to Latoya Jackson (that’s right), we look back at the steamiest celeb-fronted issues of the past twenty-five years.
Nepotism is alive and well in Hollywood, folks. There are so many second-generation celebs running around Tinseltown, you’d think it was a family reunion. Actors with a movie star parent are a dime a dozen (hi, Kate Hudson and Michael Douglas) — but some of our biggest stars have parents who were more lowkey showbiz players, in an under-the-radar kind of way. From Lenny Kravtiz’s producer dad to Kristen Stewart’s script supervisor mom, these celebs aren’t the only bold face names in their families.
When a non-famous person hates someone, we gossip behind their backs and and unfollow them on Facebook. But when celebs hate each other? There are press releases involved, highly publicized Twitter wars, and bitchy headlines. Some, like Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow, started off as friends; others, like Nikki Minaj and Mariah Carey, were co-workers. And then there are those, like Katie Couric and Kim Kardashian, who just seem to enjoy taking jabs at each other in public. Here are the feuding stars that do it the best:
You might think soap operas are a bit cheesy — the dramatic close-ups, the single tear release, the uber-passionate make-outs. But these over-the-top moments are also brilliant training for big screen acting (haven’t you ever seen James Lipton break this down on Inside the Actor’s Studio?). It’s no wonder so many soap actors end up becoming megastars. From Demi to LiLo, check out which A-listers had super-soapy starts.
We’re all for the Emmys awarding the living, breathing humans who make our favorite shows so spectacular — but what about the the unsung heroes? The mega-memorable props that get no love? Check out TV’s 10 most award-worthy inanimate objects!
