We know all know Jennifer Aniston got her start running in terror from a tiny evil leprechaun in, you know, Leprechaun, but did you know that most A-listers have a crappy horror film lurking in their past somewhere? From Paul Rudd to Jack Black, Demi Moore to Amy Adams, the biggest names in Hollywood have at one point been covered in corn syrup blood and chased by a prop chainsaw. So enjoy 10 amazing actors and actresses who had to pay their dues at the business end of a fake meat cleaver. Our personal favorite? Julianne Moore. Can anyone name a dumber movie death than hers? We honestly want to know!
If there’s one thing we’ve learned in the past decade, it’s that Heidi Klum is really into Halloween. Like, possibly to an unhealthy extent. And this comes from someone who’s just compiled a list of 75 different sexy Halloween costumes! So yeah, she’s pretty intense about it. The Victoria’s Secret Angel’s annual spooky bash gives her an excuse to go all out with the dress-up and make everyone else look like they threw a damn sheet over their heads and went as a ghost. In past years she and her then-husband Seal teamed up for some pretty epic couples costumes. They’ve gone as Eve and the Forbidden Fruit, the god Kali and a warrior, some kind of killer Transformers, and last year as a pair of gorillas! There’s no rhyme or reason to their choices, just that they’re Hollywood-level elaborate!
This year the newly single Heidi is striking out on her own, and last night she unveiled her latest costume on Twitter. The golden girl of the modeling world is getting literal, glamming up as a sultry Cleopatra! “Cleopatra comes 2 life!” she wrote. “Bill Corso & Martin Izquierdo are amazing! Wait until
#heidiklumhalloween night 2 c the final!” What, there’s more!? Today we officially dub Heidi Klum the winner of the planet-wide costume contest, and the winner of Halloween in general. In second place, is VH1′s own Halle Kiefer as Mama June.
Check out all of Heidi’s past costumes in the gallery below!

Let’s be honest: Everyone you know is already going as Honey Boo Boo. They got the Honey Boo Boos covered. What they don’t know (and what you and I know) is that the true star of Reality TV 2012 isn’t that little Mountain Dew-swilling moppet, but her larger than life mother, “Mama” June Shannon.
Which of course is why you’re going to be dressed as Mama come next week (or probably this Saturday. This mid-day holiday is throwing everybody off.) To be honest, I hesitated to suggest a budget Mama costume, as I didn’t want it to be insulting towards a human I genuinely like and respect. I want to pay her homage, not make her feel bad. You know what I mean? Then I realized: how many of us will ever be Halloween costumes? I don’t mean characters we spawned or memes we created. I mean actual, flesh-and-blood people. The answer is almost none. So save your Sexy Austin Powers and Sexy Jar Jar Binks for next year. Halloween 2012 is going to be All Mama’s Eve.
Halloween is almost here, and it’s definitely not just for kids anymore! These days it’s less about the mini candy bars and more about the seriously hot mini outfits. October 31st has become the unofficial the last gasp of bikini season, the final strip-off before winter sets in and everyone turns into Slanket mummies for 6 months. But for now, the goal is to be the most creative with the least amount of clothing. And no one does that better than Hollywood A-listers! These stars have brought us some truly awesome costumes over the years. Who could forget Kim Kardashian as Jasmine, Mariah Carey as a scantily clad bride(?) and Snooki as…the Queen of the Pickles? We think? Okay, we’ll be honest: we don’t know what a lot of these outfits are supposed to be. But that’s the magic of Halloween: We don’t have to! It’s the one night of the year where it’s not skanky, it’s a costume! Tons of stars and starlets have stripped down to celebrate over the years, so we’ve assembled the 75(!) most scarily sexy costumes of all time. Just think of it as a big basket of fun-sized Snickers on a doorstep and a sign that says “Help Yourself.” Dive in!

Happy hump day, Very VH1 friends. We’re dedicating today’s show entirely to Pretty Little Liars. The PLL Halloween special aired last night we’re breaking it all down. Check out Very VH1 at 2PM EST and share your thoughts! Watch the show below and click on the comment icon in the upper right hand corner to participate in the chat.
Sometimes it’s hard to really know yourself, you know? Between disemboweling high school students, controlling adults with your mind and dragging children into an alternate dimension of pain, there usually aren’t enough hours in the day to spend any quality Me Time. This Halloween, however, it’s all about self-awareness. So take our Which Horror Movie Villain Are You? Quiz and keep track of your letter answers to learn a little something about yourself. We think it might be a very wise, very horrifying decision.
Did you just realize that even though Halloween isn’t until next week, all your parties are this weekend and you STILL don’t have a costume? VH1 Celebrity is here to save you. Our very creative staff has spent the past week putting off their much more important duties to come up with some clever (and timely!) costumes that you too can pull together with little time and a shoestring budget. We won’t even charge you royalties. First up: One of our favorite memes of election season: Clint Eastwood and his chair, a.k.a. Invisible Obama, from the Republican National Convention. If you’re lucky, this one can cost you less than $10.
1. Find a wooden chair. My husband, Allen (who came up with this whole concept), and I found this one on trash day in Brooklyn. He removed the seat with a very satisfying kick. If no one’s discarding furniture on your block this week, we’re sure you can find something similar at a Goodwill.
It’s safe to say the best part of Halloween is checking out everyone’s costumes, especially celebrities — they’ve got mountains of money, they dress up for a living, they should really be the best at this, right? Unfortunately, some celebs are blessed with both an overabundance of creativity and a lack of good decision-making skills, and there’s a fine line between really great and successful costumes and weird, played out and awful ones. Between Aaron Carter‘s pimp suit (played out and weird for a 14-year-old) and Perez Hilton‘s interpretation of Lady Gaga (weird and awful) there’s no shortage of odd getups. Here are 20 that probably should have never, ever happened.

It’s that time of the year, folks! All the celebrity candids you see will now include visits to pumpkin patches, Halloween costume suggestions and faux scary shots with ghosts, zombies, vampires or all of the above. It’s time to get spook-eh! Bless Miley Cyrus for getting right on the bandwagon, because you can almost sense how excited she is about Halloween in the photograph above. It was published on her Pheed account yesterday with the simple caption, “Boo!!!” Props to the skeleton, ghost hybrid and the over-exaggerated expressions which have obviously been pulled on our behalf! Nicely done, Ms. Miley! Our attention was taken up first due to the fact that we were trying to read what was on her pal’s T-shirt — “Wasted Youth” apparently. And then we looked at Miley and thought to ourselves how much her short hair was growing on us which served as a placebo of, “Awww, we approve of one of Miley’s sartorial decisions. How nice that we’ve finally reached this place!” And that’s the moment we realised she wasn’t wearing any pants. At all. Nary a booty short in sight. It’s like every single bad horror film you’ve seen, where the blond, who always gets murdered at some point, always has very few clothes on! Seriously … why is she pantless? Anyone?

We can’t be the only ones whose weekend was ruined by the news that Heidi Klum and Seal are breaking up. They seemed like the ideal couple! In every single picture they’re either kissing or wearing insanely elaborate matching costumes. Honestly, we don’t know how to cope with the thought of never seeing them together at their annual Halloween Ball ever again. So to stave off the impending panic attack, we created the gallery below to relive the good old days. Click away to view the insane cuteness and the insane costumes!
