A 'Classy' Amy Adams Gives Up Her First-Class Seat To A Servicem
A simple act of kindness that Amy Adams performed seemingly in private is making headlines - for all the right reasons. The actress gave up her first-class plane ticket to a U.S. serviceman.

Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN's "Numbers Never Lie," witnessed the act during a flight from Detroit to Los Angeles and posted about it on Twitter this morning.

Just saw actress Amy Adams do something incredibly classy. She gave her 1st class seat to an American soldier. I'm an even bigger fan now.

Natural Celebrity Redheads - The Dirt On Whose Hair Is Real Or F
Research reveals that less than 1 percent of the world's population has natural red hair. Even if both parents have red hair, there is just a one in four chance their child will be ginger, according to LiveScience.com.

Despite these rare statistics, Hollywood is full of redheads. So whose hair is real and whose isn't?

Lindsay Lohan is one of the few natural gingers in Tinseltown. She experimented with blonde for a while, but we're glad she's been sticking to her roots lately.

7 Awesome Video Games That Could (or Should) Be Movies
The video game industry brings in billions of dollars annually. Some of the top games now bring in more money than a major Hollywood blockbuster. There is often a lot of overlap between fans of both types of entertainment, and with video games now having more and more elaborate story lines with each new generation of consoles, it's not surprising that Tinsel Town has been eyeing a number of games for possible film treatment.

All 7 games on this list are either officially in production, rumored to be in production or have a history with the film industry that would make them a good fit for ...

19 Stars That Don't Mind Getting Naked For Roles
One of the greatest dilemmas in becoming an actor or actress is the value in taking your clothing off for a role. Many have clauses in their contracts that state they will not ever do a nude scene (Julia Roberts uses body doubles when a role calls for her to take it all off, and has said, "It's just not my thing.") Still, for as many thespians who will not take it all off, there are just as many who will, and have willfully. Following, in no particular order, are 19 stars that don't mind getting naked for roles.

Oscar Predictions: Does 'Gravity' Carry Enough Weight?

Oscar Predictions: Does 'Gravity' Carry Enough Weight?
For the most part, the major categories at the Oscars are fairly easy to predict. But some years there are upset winners (‘Shakespeare in Love,’ Marcia Gay Harden, Juliette Binoche, Adrien Brody, to name a few) that remind us that anything can happen.

This year is a little different. Who remembers a year where the race for Best Picture is down to three films, two of which are so close that they tied at the Producers’ Guild? It seems like there are some definite locks this year (Hello, Cate Blanchett) but you read it here: Nothing is guaranteed. Nothing.

That said, here are the most likely...

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Keri Hilson wore this tight dress to the About Last Night premiere, and we don't love the contrast of magenta and olive green. The patterns are also tacky, almost rug-like.

Amal Fashanu wore this dress, which has quite a bit going on: there's the brick wall giving way to nature, see-through sleeves, and a furry lump. The dress would be quite beautiful without those last two additions, especially the attached bulge of black fur....

Amy Adams says acting with women helps create "intimacy".

The 39-year-old actress plays Sydney Prosser in the forthcoming film 'American Hustle' and is forced to share an on-screen kiss with Jennifer Lawrence, but she admits she doesn't mind because working with females creates a different vibe to working with men.

She told Britain's Vanity Fair magazine: "I rarely get to work with other women. I got to act with Jennifer [Lawrence], and I thought, this is the most fun I have had in so long. Not because I don't like acting with men, but because there's an energy created when two young wome...
