The news that Fast and Furious star Paul Walker passed away yesterday seemed to shock and stun everyone last night. The actor and humanitarian was only 40 years old when he died in a fiery car crash in Valencia, Santa Clarita, California with friend Roger Rodas. As tragic as the loss is, Walker leaves behind a legacy of charity work and popular action films that were loved by fans all over the world. Here’s a look back at Walker’s life, the movies he made and the difference he’s made in people’s lives.
Who’s that brand new Hollywood hottie making headlines and modeling in bikinis on Instagram? Well, chances are she didn’t come from nowhere. She’s probably the daughter of an aging male celebrity. At least, that’s the story behind Francesca Eastwood, Ireland Baldwin and Kendall Jenner.
The selfie is now ubiquitous on social media, so much so that its greatest proponents have started mixing it up, and finding bold new ways to self-photograph. The latest craze in selfie-land is to take your body, cell phone and reverse it — that’s right, we’re now taking it from behind. With Kim Kardashian kicking it off, a whole slew of celebrities have started capturing their perfect tushes in their gratuitous selfies.
Are reading this from a brand-new device you got for next to nothing after standing in line overnight for the big Black Friday sales? Or, are you lazy like us and waiting for Cyber Monday? VH1 News was curious about the holiday shopping habits of the rich and famous, and asked them what they’d wait in line for, with some interesting results. Girls‘ Zosia Mamet would do it for a unicorn (of course!). But our favorite answer came from Idris Elba.
It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and we’re all feeling fat. Celebs are not immune to this feeling. In fact, they’re not immune to actually getting chubby. Like us, they stuff their faces on holidays, get a tad too amped at the craft services table, and gain pesky pregnancy weight. But unlike us, they can afford the veddy veddy best trainers, nutritionists, dieticians and lipo technicians. They can afford to pile on the pounds because they have the means to drop the lb’s faster than you can say “Jenny Craig contract.”
Last week, Christina Aguilera and Miranda Lambert showed off svelte new, slimmed-down figures at the AMA’s and Country Music Awards. In the past couple months since Princess North West was born, Kim Kardashian has gone from “Shamu” jokes (and shame on the tabloids for that) to her pre-preggo, Playboy-perfect figure. And we’re not even going to go into Perez Hilton’s flirty new physique.
Here, we celebrate the ten sexiest celeb slimdowns of the past six months. Some post-Thanksgiving feast inspo!

Thanksgiving is all about eating turkey, spending time with loved ones and watching a great football game. However, knowing that some of the hottest NFL stars are also some of the sexiest men on Earth also means that some of us won’t be watching for the game. Our eyes are on something other than the pigskin.
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.

The great thing about butts is that everyone has one. Women have butts and men have butts, and even though the female derriere gets more attention in music and on movie posters, there have been many great moments in male butt history-and we’re not just talking about the movie Magic Mike.
Love them or hate them, selfies provide perfect portraits of how people want the world to see them. Since celebrities are in the public eye for a living, they should be the masters of photographing themselves. They’ve got hair; they’ve got makeup; they’ve got their angles down pat; they’ve got things all wrong? The 20 celebrities on our list are usually on point when they point and shoot photos of themselves, but these selfies are sucky disasters!
Kendall Jenner, half-sister of Kim Kardashian, just celebrated her 18th birthday earlier this month. The eldest daughter of the Bruce and Kris Jenner bloodline is attempting to become a high fashion model, which means that it was only a matter of time before “art-y” nude pictures of her would appear on the glossy pages of a trendy magazine. Or, in this case, her Instagram account. (See gallery above for the NSFW shots.)
