Once upon a time in Hollywood, actresses and pop divas arrived at award shows in prim and proper dresses that covered up their décolletage. Then, came the 1990s and celebrities discovered that showing some skin could get them some serious press. Since then collars have been cut lower and cleavage has been raised higher. Starlets have dared to bare not only skin, but also their actual breasts.
We’ve always had a big crush on Chris Pratt. How can you not? He’s adorable, he’s funny, and he can play the guitar! Let’s just say, though, that our crush went into major overdrive when Pratt transformed himself into a superhero for Guardians of the Galaxy. We’re not just talking about the “chunky to hunky” shirtless selfie seen all over the world. Pratt didn’t just get into the physical shape of a hunky hero; he also got into the mental state of a swaggering space pilot. And let’s just say we’re liking it. We’re liking it a lot.
All awards season long, we’ve been salivating over Jared Leto. Not just Jared Leto, though — his hair. Sure, it’s a little odd that the sexiest ombre (ie, blonde-tipped brunette haircolor) in Hollywood is on the head of a man, but we’ll take it. And frankly, it’s no surprise that Leto’s hair is such a big deal right now. The Oscar-nominated actor-cum-rock star has always rocked, well…interesting hairstyles. As Jordan Catalano on My So Called Life, he had the quintessential mid-Nineties cut of hot, disaffected, post-grunge types (the grown-out shag). When he became 30 Second to Mars’ frontman, he ditched the “actor” hair for more rockstar styles, like roostery mohawks and the dreaded WBBs (White Boy Braids).
We have no idea with the renaissance man is going to do with his hair next, but no doubt it’ll be entertaining. Here, check out the Dallas Buyer’s Club star’s hairstyle transformation!

Male celebrities live the life. Fawning fans, crazy cash, management teams that jump at their every whim. And if they’re particularly hot (even if they’re not), there’s always a slew of eager-and-willing women at their disposal. Which, it seems, can get them into eighteen years of trouble, if they’re not careful. Trouble in the form of a baby with their eyes and haircolor (or in the case of Mick and Steven, lush, puffy, rockstar lips).
Yep, paternity scandals go hand-in-hand with celebrity. Who can forget the two that emerged over the holidays? Dwyane Wade proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Gabrielle Union — and two minutes later a baby was born, to a woman who wasn’t her. Meanwhile, Ludacris’ “friend,” Tamika Fuller, sued him over child support for their newborn daughter, which came as a shock to his common law wife.
Will these guys every learn to keep it in their pants? No. Which is always entertaining for us. Here, check out ten insane celebrity paternity scandals!

The Kardashians aren’t the only fascinating family in Hollywood (of course, the word “fascinating” is totally up for interpretation). TV has been putting high-drama celebrity families on TV for ages. The Osbournes, the Houstons, the Lohans. Guiliana and Bill. The screechy stage mama melodrama that was Brandy & Ray J. Even Hollywood heavyweight Mark Wahlberg is getting in on the action, starring with his mom and his bros Donnie and Paul in an unscripted A&E series about their family-owned restaurant, Wahlburgers.
But there are oodles of other A-list broods we’d love to see dip their pampered, pedicured toes in the reality waters. Who wouldn’t want to a voyeuristic peek at the lives of Will, Jada, and their fascinating kids (a Kylie Jenner-dating son who tweets damning critiques about our educational system; a jazz hands-y daughter who “whips her haaaair back and forth”)? And the Jolie-Pitts are a no brainer. All those gorgeous, perfectly curated children with inventive names and perfect hair!
Here, our votes for the ten Hollywood families we’d kill to see on reality TV.

Has there been enough booze passed around to the stars this awards season? Never enough, but the People’s Choice, Critics’ Choice, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild and Grammy Awards have had some pretty spectacular fail moments this year. Each show reminded us that amid all the glitz and glamour, sometimes things can go wrong: stars get overexcited, machines die, jokes fall flat. Here are the 10 biggest fails of the season, but oh, just wait until the Oscars!
This year marks the 45th anniversary of Sesame Street, folks! Back in ’69, it was the only programming targeted to target to urban kids of all races and nationalities, and it’s still one of the most inclusive, progressive shows on the air. Oh, and their celebrity guest spots rule. Where else could you see Tina Fey as a “Pirate of the Can-Be-Reading” — complete with a merry band of Bookaneers — growling a song about the awesomeness of books? Or how about that Usher spot that went viral last fall, where he sang his own silky, croon-y version of the Alphabet Song with Grover, Elmo and Abby Cadabby (so catchy, it could’ve been released as a single).
From Ricky Gervais to Charlize Theron, we’re addicted to these superstar Sesame Street skits.
You might not know who Cara Delevingne is by name, but you definitely know her face. She’s on magazine covers and billboards. She’s strutting down the catwalk in Paris and in the Victoria’s Secret show. She’s making out with Michelle Rodriguez at a basketball game and getting linked with Harry Styles. So what’s the model’s secret? She’s more than just a pretty face. She’s a real wild child with an infectious personality–and she’s got the scandalous Instagram pics to prove it.
When Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer hit the Screen Actors Guild Awards with half of her head shaved totally bald, Hollywood gasped in shock. And then those of us who are Hunger Games fans smiled, knowing she did it to play filmmaker Cressida in Mockingjay.) “I haven’t shaved off all my head of hair off, no,” Natalie told us back in October, assuring readers that Cressida’s look is “definitely an interesting interpretation of the reference in the book. I would like to think that people won’t be disappointed with the choices that we made.”
The look is seriously extreme, but let’s be honest –– it’s nothing new.
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.
