20 Celebrities With Dimples
A few stars in the entertainment industry have been blessed with dimples, making them appear forever young. Some celebs' indented cheeks are more prominent than others, but we find both kinds equally appealing.

Australian model Miranda Kerr has very visible dimples on her cheeks. Whenever she smiles, her dimples appear. She is most known for her work as a Victoria's Secret Angel and her (now ended) marriage to actor Orlando Bloom.

Kerr has her own skincare line, Kora Organics. She once told Cosmpolitan magazine that she uses coconut oil for her beautiful skin, shiny hair and slim body.

Sexy Male Stars At The 86th Annual Academy Awards

Sexy Male Stars At The 86th Annual Academy Awards
It's usually all about the ladies and who they're wearing on the Oscars red carpet. But there are plenty of guys that look really incredible too.

Bradley Cooper, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for "American Hustle," wore a Tom Ford tuxedo to the event. He was accompanied by his British model girlfriend Suki Waterhouse.

Jared Leto easily stole the coveted Oscar from Cooper for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club." But we don't think he won the red carpet competition.

Leto's tux was an unusual combination of black and white with a red bow tie. We can forgive him his style choice b...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt May Direct And Star In 'Sandman' Film

December 17th, 2013 2:03pm EST
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Joseph Gordon-Levitt could be playing a DC Comics character – just not the one everyone assumed he would.

At the end of Dark Knight Rises (spoiler alert), Gordon-Levitt’s character was revealed to be named “Robin” and was handed the keys to the Bat-Cave as heir-apparent to the Batman name. That changed when Ben Affleck was given the cowl, of course.

However, it now appears Gordon-Levitt is returning to the comic imprint but in a very different role: as Morpheus from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman.

Badass Digest first reported rumors of Gordon seeking a deal concerning Sandman, although it was unk...

Watchdog Group Attacks 'Don Jon' For Portraying Italian And Jewish Stereotypes

October 1st, 2013 10:07pm EDT
Don Jon
The Italian-American One Voice Coalition has a problem with Joseph Gordon-Levitt's latest film, saying Don Jon promotes "racist stereotypes."

The group became famous for its battle against MTV in 2010 over its show Jersey Shore for the way it portrayed Italian Americans in New Jersey.

Coalition president Dr. Emanuele Alfano wrote in a statement, "Levitt, much like his pornography-addicted character, needs an intervention and should go into serious therapy for his ethnic denigration of Italian Americans."

The statement went on to describe the film's "racist" portrayals, such as a family s...

'Don Jon'
Joseph Gordon Levitt is one talented actor and with his new film, 'Don Jon,' he shows us that acting is not the only thing he's good at.

The 11 Most Insane Movie Makeovers
Sometimes you have to suffer for your art. Whether it's dropping (or packing on) weight, sitting in a makeup chair for three hours a day, or getting new piercings, some actors and actresses are willing to do what it takes to convey a realistic character. Here are some of the Most Insane Movie Makeovers:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Refuses To 'Clarify' Gay Rumors

September 17th, 2013 10:00pm EDT
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Anytime an A-list actor is good at singing or dancing and doesn't have many high-profile relationships, the gay rumors fly.

For years, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been plagued by such rumors, and he has refused to set the record straight (no pun intended).

In a new interview with Out magazine, a journalist asked him if he was gay. His answer? "That would be really tacky. They would win if I had to clarify."

We have to respect his vague answer. Why should he have to annouce his sexuality because of gossip?

At the premiere of his recent film "Don Jon," he told Hollyscoop: "I want to be provo...

'Justice League' Rumor: Joseph Gordon Levitt As Batman

Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Dark Knight Rises
Warner Bros. is hoping to get Justice League out into theaters as soon as possible, following the success of Disney's Avengers. Christian Bale is done with Batman, though, so WB will have to resort to the next best thing.

Spoilers ahead, if you haven't seen Dark Knight Rises (in fact, this entire article could be considered a spoiler, but still). At the end of Rises, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character is given full access to the Bat-Cave after Bruce Wayne retires from the job. So for the time being, Levitt is WB's Batman.

However, there isn't time for there to be a Batman film before Justi...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s 10 Best Performances

JGL
10. Angels in the Outfield (dir. William Dear, 1994)

It’s easy to forget that JGL began his career at a very early age. His first starring performance, when he was roughly 12 years old, was the endearing and surprisingly entertaining Disney remake of Angels in the Outfield. As Roger, an orphan who prays for the Los Angeles Angels baseball team to win the pennant, JGL had to act opposite some pretty heavy hitters (Christopher Lloyd, Danny Glover, Tony Danza, Dermot Mulroney), but managed to still give an impressively mature performance.

JGL’s work in Angels in the Outfield showed clear sig...
