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...

Jimmy Fallon And Will Smith Do The 'Evolution Of Hip-Hop Dancing
Jimmy Fallon was joined by actor Will Smith on his first episode as host of "The Tonight Show" Monday night, and the two stars performed the hilarious "Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing" together.

Without skipping a beat (pun intended) Fallon brought over many of his old mainstays from "Late Night" to his new show and time slot, and Hip-Hop follows right in line with his "Evolution of Mom Dancing" he performed with First Lady Michelle Obama on his old show.

Fallon and Smith break out all the old moves -- and even throw in a few new ones, much to Smith's chagrin.

The two stars even did "The Do...

Will Smith
Will Smith won't be saying "Welcome to Earf" in either of the two (yes, two) upcoming sequels to 1996 ailen invasion blockbuster Independence Day.

Director Roland Emmerich, who helmed the first film, is set to return for the second and third installments; but he says getting his top star to return would be "too expensive."

"We have like maybe half of the people that you know would know from the first film (in the script) and...

Celebrity investors have the ability to bring notoriety to an item or cause, as well as a large budget to invest in its success.
