With the 2014 Winter Olympics officially kicking off in Sochi this week, we’re in for a massive dose of all things Russian. While we’re getting ready for our athletes for grab some gold during the games, we can imagine that some celebrities will be spectating from the stands. But how many of those stars actually have families who’ve hailed from Mother Russia?
Alright gang, it’s time to hop into your time machines and blast to the past. Our love for huge stars like James Franco, Mila Kunis and Leonardo DiCaprio have grown and grown over the years – and it’s no secret why. They have got a healthy dose of talent, and then some. But these guys weren’t always seasoned vets in the game of movie fame. They were young, nervous, hungry go-getters like the rest of us, just trying to leave a print in the world. And fortunately for them, they ended up leaving pretty big prints and continue to do so. Read more…
Is Rita Ora joining Fifty Shades of Grey? Are Josh Brolin and Diane Lane still together? How far back did Paul Walker‘s love of cars go?
It’s Hunger Games season! And with posters of Jennifer Lawrence, game-face on, staring you down, pointing her bow and arrow at you in a flourish of flames everywhere you turn, it’s hard not to succumb to the delicate mix of sexiness and feminist bravado the image evokes. It’s true that J-Law looks good doing just about anything — I challenge you to put her in a burlap sack and have her recite the dictionary and it NOT be completely endearing and compelling — but as Katniss Everdeen there’s a real magic in her archery.
Red carpet goddess Kerry Washington is an American football WAG no more, now that hubby Nnamdi Asomugha has been released by the San Francisco 49ers. But no need to call in the services of Olivia Pope–Washington’s steady Scandal paycheck, along with her work with Neutrogena, as creative consultant and celebrity brand ambassador, should keep the lights on for the foreseeable future.
The world has a new selfie king, Zac Efron marks sobriety with Rob Lowe, and The Simpsons‘ couch gag for its upcoming Halloween episode contains some unexpected gems.

On the new Bravo series, Princesses: Long Island, six young Jewish women live lives of privilege and are chasing even bigger dreams. If the show’s a big hit, we could potentially see spin offs, and if so, can we suggest Princesses: Hollywood? After all, the town is full of gorgeous Jewish beauties we already can’t stop watching.
Earlier this week, we told you about how Miley Cyrus referred to her boyfriend/fiance/superstud Liam Hemsworth as her “hubby” in an interview with Cosmopolitan. The quote sparked an untold number of rumors suggestion that the power-couple have already tied the knot without us catching on. Well, it turns out we missed a crucial part of the interview: She actually straight up said she was married, y’all! “I’m happy I don’t have to date anyone,” she said within the pages. And later on while telling an anecdote she dropped another glaring hint nugget: “‘I’m so happy I’m married, because you guys are so cruel!’”
OK, so she might have just taken a conversational short cut, and what she meant to say was “I’m so happy that I’m about to get married in the very near future.” But that’s kind of a mouthful, no? A rep for Hemsworth strenuously denied the wedding bell buzz to People, saying that they are ”definitely NOT married.”
But hey, reps deny stuff all the time. And it doesn’t explain those Twitpics from Christmas that showed Miley and Liam wearing matching rings. And it really doesn’t explain why those same photos mysteriously vanished soon after being posted! Did Miley and Liam get married in secret? It wouldn’t be the first time in Hollywood history. Head on down to the gallery below and see 20 other famous couples who got hitched on the super DL!

We’ve already begun squealing about the return of Jim Carrey in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone after the actor’s virtually acting-free 2012…and, um, those other years before that. That’s when we realized that a ton of our favorite celebs will be all over our big and small screens in 2013 (not to mention our internets, with all their interviews and such) after a dry spell. For example, according to IMDb, this year Carrie star Chloe Moretz and Oz the Great and Powerful lead James Franco return in seven and six film projects respectively. Natalie Portman and Rooney Mara have both been off the scene since 2010′s Black Swan and 2011′s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. And Michael Cera? More Arrested Development means more sweet, sweet George Michael for your eyeballs.
Of course, some of these celebs seemed like they never left the limelight (see also: James Franco). Did you know Melissa McCarthy was in only one film in 2012? In Vanessa Hudgens‘ and Dwayne Johnson‘s case, it was the same film. (We didn’t know if either of them would bounce back from Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, but here we are.) Check the gallery below to find out more about their respective upcoming projects, and what other celebs we cannot wait to see more of this year.
