Kim Basinger
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!

Kim Basinger got rave reviews from other sites for wearing this 20s-style suit that would have looked awkward on a man attending a film premiere, let alone Kim Basinger. The dark red lipstick and slicked-back hair just add to the creepy flair - she looks like The Joker.

Perhaps Kristen Wiig's gown would be on the edge of good fashion at the premiere of some indie flick or even the Met Gala, but at the Anchorman 2 premiere it si...

"Save a life this Thanksgiving, and join me in starting a new tradition by adopting a turkey instead of eating one through Farm Sanctuary's Adopt-A-Turkey Project." – Ellen DeGeneres, Farm Sanctuary’s 2010 Adopt-A-Turkey Project spokesperson.

"Turkeys are among the most abused animals on earth. The horrors these smart, sensitive birds routinely endure behind closed doors on our nation's factory farms, all so that their tortured bodies can be the centerpiece of a holiday celebration about gratitude, are appalling and incongruent with most Americans' values of compassion." - John Salley, 4-t...

Oscar winner Jeff Bridges would never cheat on his wife Susan with a co-star - because an affair would cost him "everything". The Crazy Heart star, who scooped the Best Actor prize at Sunday's Academy Awards, credits his partner with much of his success, and insists he'd never risk their 33-year relationship for a fling with an actress.

He says, "I'm so in love with her. The relationship just keeps getting better and more intimate and sexier and all that stuff. If you change partners every time it gets tough or you get a little dissatisfied, then you don't get the richness that's availabl...

Celebrities Who Have Posed for Playboy

Celebrities Who Have Posed for Playboy
Playboy: the original "I read it for the articles" nudie magazine was founded in 1953 by the legendary Hugh Hefner and associates (along with a $1,000 IOU from Mama Hef). Contrary to popular belief, however, Playboy's primary purpose is not to provide lustful bust-full images for the 18+ horny male crowd - tisk tisk for even thinking such rubbish. Rather, the mission of Playboy Magazine is to create a unique cocktail of sexuality, politics, art, and culture for the man about town who is all about experiencing the finer things in life, which obviously includes lots of boobies.

Top 10 Films With Numbers In The Title

In honor of the recent Tim Burton film 9 we're spotlighting numerals and numbers in film. What they have contributed to movies over the years goes beyond simply differentiating an original from a sequel.

For the most part this list excludes sequels. Sorry. It's just too easy. Also, much too simple are the straight up number films. But the English language loopholes are definitely abused throughout this top ten to reflect the best and, well, most viewed options. Check them out!

Top Celebrity Freak Outs - Can They Bounce Back?

July 2nd, 2009 2:52pm EDT

Celebrity is something of a double edged sword. On one hand you could make millions and be adored by fans all over the world, but it also means the loss of privacy and the constant nitpicking of the mainstream critics. One slip up is all it takes for your face and words to be scattered over magazines and blogs, but sometimes the controversies are worth being taken to task for.

Here's a look at some of the celebrities who lost their mind or temper at the wrong time, and whether or not they have managed to bounce back from the incidents. What do you think of these moments in celeb history...

Billy Bob Thornton Heads An All-Star Cast In 'The Informers', In Theatres April 24

The Informers
In such works as Less Than Zero and American Psycho Brett Easton Ellis brilliantly dissects contemporary American society, a culture in which too much is never enough. Now, adapting his own acclaimed novel for the screen, he returns to the Los Angeles of the early 1980's with a multi-strand narrative that deftly balances a vast array of characters who represent both the top of the heap (a Hollywood dream merchant, a dissolute rock star, an aging newscaster) and the bottom (a voyeuristic doorman, an amoral ex-con).

Connecting all his intertwining strands are the quintessential Ellis pr...

It is widely acknowledged that workplace romances are a definite no-no; clearly, some famous actors and actresses didn't get the memo. From classic romantic duos Bogey/Bacall and Spencer/Tracy to contemporary pairings like "Bennifer" and "Brangelina", since the inception of cinema, thespians have taken on-set relationships from reel-life to real-life.

Buy Your Own Brunch! Celeb's Moms Who Won't Be Getting The Royal Treatment This Mother's Day

Ah, Mother. It's a noun that traditionally conjures up the warm 'n' fuzzies, instigates fights ("Don't you talk about my mama!), drives the most hardened man to tears and inspires tattoos proclaiming everlasting love.

For the lucky majority, Mother's Day is an opportunity to express what we usually fail to: How much the unconditional love, support and guidance of a maternal figure has touched our lives for the better. But what of the unlucky few for whom the idea of Mother's Day is sheer anathema? Which stars won't be buying a card, let alone brunch for Mommie Dearest come May 11?
