No Butts About It: 30 Celebrity Smokers
Everyone knows smoking is bad, but many celebrities can't help lighting up. Maybe they have a tough time quitting the habit, or perhaps they smoke to keep off the weight. A cheeseburger is worse than a cigarette, right?

It may surprise you that some of these stars smoke - others you won't find so shocking.

Keira Knightley is a smoker, and it's probably part of the reason why she's so thin. She's also been accused of having an eating disorder. Early in 2014 she admitted that her grandmother and great-grandmother had anorexia but denied suffering from the disease herself. Either way, both h...

Hollywood's Hottest Celebrity Siblings
Hollywood is full of sexy celebrity siblings who share the spotlight, often in the same discipline.

Sisters Beyonce and Solange Knowles have both demonstrated their musical chops over the years, but Beyonce is by far the bigger star. However, Solange has made a dent in the fashion industry and is often watched for her clothing and hairstyle choices.

The Hemsworth brothers stormed Hollywood in recent years for their work in popular film franchises such as "The Hunger Games" and "The Avengers." The Australian-born brothers will likely continue to produce box office hits in years to come.

Every year at the start of the Tribeca Film Festival I write some really nice piece about how Tribeca’s my favorite time of year, how it’s the best month out of all the months. I mean, come on, I get to sit around and watch movies all month and conduct interviews and take pictures of actors and rub elbows with filmmakers and producers; what’s not to love, right? Actually, there’s nothing at all to dislike, as it’s always an honor and a privilege to be doing what I’m doing.

Many celebrities attended Tuesday night's Vanity Fair cocktail party for the Tribeca Film Festival at the State Courthouse in Manhattan's Financial District. But two stars stuck out for their interesting fashion sense.
