Miley Cyrus
These celebrities need an intervention - of the fashion kind. Either they look terrible and need help reinventing their images or they've had the same look for years and need to change it up a bit.

Miley Cyrus stunned fans in the summer of 2012 when she chopped off her famous "Hannah Montana" locks and dyed her hair platinum blonde. She made the bold move nearly two years ago, and we'd like to see her do something different again. She's a risk taker, so why not go red or brunette?

The singer has been traveling around for her "Bangerz" tour and has recently taken to raunchy stage antics wi...

Top 10 Stars Who Are Always Typecast In Their Movies

Grown Ups 2
People tend to judge a movie by its cast. For example, when you see Adam Sandler on the poster of a new movie, you'll expect it to be a family comedy. We all know the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover," but how can we not?

We at Starpulse would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our favorite actors and actresses who have been diagnosed with a severe case of typecastitis. Symptoms: playing a certain type of character for way too long, earning nicknames like “Hollywood’s bad girl,” and people being able to guess an entire movie’s plot-line just by seeing the actor’s face on ...

Dark Shadows
For those of you, like myself, who aren't familiar with the television series 'Dark Shadows' which ran from 1966-1971, here are the film's cliff notes:

The year is 1750 (give or take) and a wealthy young man named Barnabus Collins (Johnny Depp) gets it on with his maid Angelique (Eva Green), who just happens to be a witch. She feels the love... Him… not so much. The witch gets pissed, turns Barnabus into a vampire, locks him in a coffin and then buries him deep in the ground.

Still not satisfied, Angelique kills Barnabus's one true love as well as his parents and then she spends the next ...
