Charlie Sheen Leads A Long List Of Celebs Taking The Ice Bucket
If you haven't yet heard about the "ice bucket challenge" going on to benefit ALS, then chances are you've been living under a rock for the last two weeks.

The social media craze, which actually began months ago (more on that later), has been sweeping the nation all in the name of raising money and awareness about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

The challenge is simple: someone "nominates" you and two others to take the challenge next and then dumps about a five-gallon bucked of ice water over their own head. Those nominated can either accept the...

According to IMDb, Oldman says it's "the worst movie ever made" and he only took the role because he hadn't worked in a while and had gone through a divorce at the time.

10 Stars & Their Reasonably Priced Cars
We know that a lot of Hollywood celebs just love to flaunt their wealth - and a lot of the time this comes in the shape of very expensive automobiles. Some celebrities though, don't feel the need to buy an expensive automobile to just display their status.

A lot of celebrities, automotively-speakings, are a lot like me and you - they have cars that they just use as transport pieces - a reliable, economic way to get from point A to B. We respect that kind of frugality - and today we pay homage to the stars that drive reasonably priced cars. Who knows? Maybe you drive the same car as one of ...

That's right folks. Conan has an illegitimate son - maybe.

An individual by the name of Gregory Keating has come forward with a subtle suggestion that Conan O'Brien is his father in a Youtube video that has gone viral.

Now rich, successful celebrities have no shortage of one night stands, and certainly aren't lacking in individuals claiming to be their illegitimate sons or daughters (just look at 50 Cent's Twitter feed - the man has given Genghis Khan and Frank Sinatra a run for their money.)

Conan and his web producer Aaron Bleyaert sat down and played the game, which was released on Tuesday and has already made over $800 million worldwide, and after a couple of failed missi...
