An artist's depiction of the asteroid impact 65 million years ag
Apparently, Armageddon is not merely a movie, at least from NASA’s standpoint. The space agency believes it has a potential strategy to avert calamity from killer space rocks in the future – and filmmaker, Michael Bay, is at least owed some of the credit. It sounds far fetched, but nukes are potentially the answers to killer asteroids and comets.

Who can forget the film that debuted in the summer of 1998? The science fiction flick starred Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck, two roughneck drillers commissioned to ward off a probable deep impact from a killer asteroid. The blockbuster motion pictu...

Rumer Willis And Demi Moore Are Identical Mother-Daughter Twins
Most people hate it when they become their mother. Rumer Willis doesn't seem to mind (it's probably not so bad when your mom's Demi Moore).

On Monday, Rumer (the daughter of Demi and Bruce Willis) shared a head-turning photo on Instagram. In the pic, Rumer and her mom are dressed in identical outfits: black jumpsuits, black-rimmed glasses and flowing black locks. They're making the same pose: hands in pockets, leaning against a wall. They're even rocking the same smile!

25 Celebrity Republicans - Some May Shock You
Let's face it - Hollywood attracts a lot of Democrats. Many stars champion gay rights, environmental causes and other issues that are important for that political party.

Former Disney star Hilary Duff performed at George W. Bush's 2005 inauguration and is a registered Republican. The singer/actress is dropping a new pop album in October and recently told the press she's open to a "Lizzie McGuire" reunion.
