If you aren’t a huge fan of Shailene Woodley, you’re gonna be. And soon! Seriously, we’re predicting K-Stew level fan hysteria in a very sort time. We caught flashes of the young actress’s huge talent when she took the lead role of Amy Juergens in The Secret Life Of The American Teenager, and her critically acclaimed role along side George Clooney in The Descendants last year blew us away. She’s on the brink of inking deals in two major movie franchises, and…she’s got really awesome hair. Yes, we’re more than a little obsessed with the gorgeous Ms. Shailene (even though it took us three tries to pronounce her name correctly), so in honor of her 21st birthday today, we’ve assembled 21 reasons why the world is about to go nuts over her. Enjoy!
1. She’s negotiating to star in the upcoming franchise, Divergent.
Trust us, this will go far to fill the void left by Twilight.
2. She’s also in “early talks” to play Mary Jane Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Anne Hathaway had a pretty busy pre- birthday weekend! The winner of the coveted “sexiest hair” award tore it up on Saturday Night Live, stealing the show away from Rihanna (we think!) with hilarious impressions of Katie Holmes and Claire Danes. She even nails the Homeland star’s meme-erific cry-face. Not to be outdone with Riri’s stellar musical guest spot, the multi-talented Anne even treated the audience to a (not-so) heartfelt rendition of “One Day More,” from her upcoming turn in Les Miserables.
And that’s not all! Anne’s steamy Vogue cover dropped today, too! Inside she opens up about her new look courtesy of her Les Miz experience. She famously went method on us for a while, losing a ton of weight (25 pounds!) for her role as the impoverished Fantine. “I had to be obsessive about it. The idea was to look near death,” she told the magazine. “Looking back on the whole experience — and I don’t judge it in any way — it was definitely a little nuts. It was definitely a break with reality, but I think that’s who Fantine is anyway.” She also talked about her life as a newly wed, having tied the knot with Adam Shulman last month.
So lots to celebrate if you happen to be Anne Hathaway, and to top it all off she turns 30 years old today! So in honor of her big day, we’ve assembled 30 of her best looks from over the years. Enjoy!
OK, we’re gonna level with you: Last month we wrote a post called 25 Reasons Why Ryan Reynolds Is Hotter Than Ryan Gosling. And doing so went against every fiber of our being. Because in reality there is no contest. Ry-Go is a force of nature, an all-out phenomenon. He’s a real life super hero who struts around New York stopping fights and car accidents, while starting earthquakes with his huge thumping heart (that happened, right?). He’s the only guy who can be a little too enthusiastic about Disney World but still be totally sexy. Does Ryan Reynolds have his own meme? We think not! So please forgive us, Ryan Gosling. We didn’t mean it, honest. We’ve even assembled our 32 favorite photos of you looking awesome in honor of your 32nd birthday today! So can we put it behind us? Please?

The rest of us get older, but Demi Moore does not. Check out the photo above for proof! The pic on the left is taken 30 years before the pic on the right? Can you tell the difference? We didn’t think so. From her 80s teen movie days (St. Elmo’s Fire, anyone?), to 90s superstardom with monster blockbusters like Ghost and A Few Good Men and most recently staring along side Miley Cyrus in LOL, she hasn’t changed a bit. Except for that bit in G.I. Jane when she shaved her head, we guess. That was pretty noticeable.
Even though the former brat-packer has had rough year with her split from Ashton Kutcher, hospitalization and subsequent stint in rehab, the lady has never looked anything less that completely flawless and fabulous. Can you believe Ms. Moore turns the big 5-0 today? We couldn’t believe it either. The actress has started partying early, hanging out in India along side Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and 200 other friends. Much nicer than last year’s divorce news! In honor of Demi’s 50th, we’ve assembled her 30 most memorable styles from through the years. Enjoy!

James Bond is back, and by all accounts better than ever! After far too many years away, Daniel Craig’s Agent 007 is hitting the big screen once again with Skyfall. The film has been leaving British audiences stunned for several weeks, so we can’t wait to go and check it out for ourselves! There are so many reasons to see a Bond flick: the action packed gun battles, the suspenseful hand to hand combat sequences, the (usually) incredible title songs, the increasingly insane technology, the sweet cars and of course the hunky Mr. Bond himself. But there’s also the legendary Bond Girls squad. Sometimes they love him, sometimes they hate him: sometimes they help him, and other times they try to kill him. But you can be sure that they’re always jaw-droppingly gorgeous! So in honor of Bond-Mania sweeping the world yet again, we’ve assembled a list of our 20 favorite Bond Girls of all time. Enjoy!

When we were freshmen in high school ten years ago, Eminem’s portrayal of struggling rapper Jimmy “B-Rabbit” Smith (A.K.A. himself) in 8 Mile was an inspiration. The monster hit “Lose Yourself” from the soundtrack became our personal pump up jam to run laps during gym class, and gave us the confidence to take that “one shot” and ask Jenna to the prom, try out for the class play, or pass that chem test! Plus it was also notable for changing the way we thought of the phrase “mom’s spaghetti” forever.
However as we got a little older, we realized the one shot ol’ Marshall Matthers was rapping about was much more serious than our day to day high school drama. It was about reconciling hopes and dreams with growing up and responsibility, all against the bleek Detroit backdrop. By no means a quick flick rushed out to capitalize on his skyrocketing fame, Eminem gave an incredible performance, made all the more amazing considering it was his first movie!
But Eminem is by no means the only rapper who tried his hand at acting. In fact, it seemed like every MC has made the jump to films at one time or another. Some totally killed it and became a successful multi-talented crossover artist, while others…made Soul Plane. So in honor of Em’s epic 8 Mile turning 10 years old today, we’ve decided to take a look back at some of our favorite rappers-turned-movie stars over the years. Enjoy!

Today Rebecca Romijn follows fellow MTV supermodel personality Jenny McCarthy into the “Holy S–t, They’re 40!?” club. The lovely Mrs. Jerry O’Connell has crammed a ton into those four decades, including parts on TV shows like Friends and Ugly Betty, a hosting gig on House Of Style, and the butt kicking role of Mystique in the X-Men franchise! Only she could make blue smokin’ hot! More recently she’s appeared in Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds, and can be see on the Adult Swim live-action police drama parody NTSF:SD:SUV::.
It’s hard to believe that one of the original Victoria’s Secret angel’s is hitting the big 4-o, and she’s had twins! But today she still has the same Sports Illustrated cover-girl body that she’s always had. To prove it we’ve assembled her 40 hottest looks through the years, so check it out in the gallery below! It’s enough to make ex John Stamos weep.

Brad Pitt’s latest role is an unusual one: Furniture designer! The 48-year-old is teaming up with famed craftsman Frank Pollaro for a line of luxury home furnishings to be unveiled in New York on November 13th. The pieces include a 17-foot dining room table finished in 24K gold, and an epically huge bed.
Apparently Brad has been harboring secret carpentry ambitions for many years. “I’ve been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered [Charles Rennie] Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright,” the actor told Architectural Digest. “Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life.”
The duo hit it off when Frank was installing a custom commissioned desk in Brad’s home and caught a glimpse of his sketch book. “I asked him, ‘Why don’t we make some of this stuff real?’” Frank said. “Brad said he thought that could be fun.” But Brad is by no means the first celebrity who’s gone out of their comfort zone with a side project. Although some have succeeded more than others. Head on down to the gallery below to see a few of our favorites from over the years!

Diddy changes his sunglasses more often than he changes his name. As we all know, that’s quite a bit. Can you remember the last time when you saw the dude’s eyes? Yeah, we thought so. The hiphop mogul has given us many things, including Bad Boy Records, Sean John, that song that ripped off “Every Breath You Take” and, of course, Danity Kane. But he also gave us dozens (probably hundreds!) of some seriously awesome eyewear. He has described his style as “swagger, timeless, diverse,” and nowhere is that more clear than in his choice of sunglasses. Whether they’re pink tinted from his J-Lo dating Puff Daddy days, to his more recent aviator-inspired set, Diddy always made sure you had no idea where he was looking. So in honor of his 43rd birthday, we’ve assembled 30 of his most baller shades of all time. Head on down to the galley below to check ‘em out!

Heidi Klum takes it off…Her makeup, that is! The model went bare for charity and proves that she doesn’t need a full glam squad to look insanely gorgeous. It’s been a rough week for Ms. Klum, what with the annual Halloween party she looks forward to every year getting canceled. But it definitely doesn’t show in this snap for BBC’s Children In Need foundation, which is raising money for -you guessed it- children in need. The organization has started a new campaign where celebs pose au naturel called BearFaced, which just proves that these folks are really good at naming things.
“I am so proud to be taking part in this year’s BBC Children in Need BearFaced campaign,” the 39-year-old said in the press release. “Having worked in the fashion industry for a number of years, I am a firm believer of encouraging women’s empowerment. And what better way to do so than [by] supporting such a fantastic charity.” Of course, she’s not the only star who’s dared to go bare over the years. Head down to the gallery below for our mega gallery of 75 more celebs without makeup!
