The Underrated Greg Kinnear

October 27th, 2008 12:34pm EDT
Greg Kinnear
He's that guy in decently funded movies you can't remember. The writing is always good to great, and you're not angry for watching one of his movies instead of The Shawshank Redemption (seriously, when is that NOT on TV?) or asking for your money back outside the theater. His work may not be critically underrated, but he's not a rock solid A-lister just either. With actors like William H. Macy and Tom Hanks out there, getting recognition for expanding on his most likeable qualities might be difficult. He may continue to slip by under the fickle radar of celebrity for a little longer.

Separated At Birth? Stars Who Look Like Other Stars

August 1st, 2008 8:45am EDT
Idina Menzel & Penelope Cruz
Ever hear the theory that everyone has a twin? Some believe that each and every person has a double somewhere on Earth. Whether that theory is true is debatable. However, it's uncanny how some celebrities resemble each other. Sometimes it's an obvious trait: similar hairstyle, body type or facial features. Other times it's more subtle: similar roles or names.

Whatever the reason, the following stars have something about them that makes them look like another famous somebody. And that's not always a good thing.

1.) Perhaps it's the enormous beer gut that makes this trio seem r...

Celebrity Horoscope: Gemini

May 22nd, 2008 8:30am EDT
Angelina Jolie
Gemini (May 22-June 21) are said to have a dual nature. The astrological symbol for Gemini is the Roman numeral for two, representing twins and duality.

Twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are Geminis. Last year the 21-year-old power duo earned $17 million, and they are planning on releasing a coffee table book about their fashion inspirations.

Gemini can be fickle. Those born under this sign represent the yin and the yang, or the law of opposites. It can be no coincidence that Anne Heche is a Gemini. She famously dated Ellen DeGeneres but later married a man. She di...

The Top Ten Oddest Athlete Cameos

March 6th, 2008 11:45am EST
The Fridge in G.I. Joe
We have to say, the process of compiling a list of the best athlete cameos has been done to death. We get it; Keith Hernandez was hilarious in Seinfeld (he was), and Mr. Burns' All Star softball team episode of The Simpsons is a classic (it is). We wanted to delve a bit deeper though, really flesh out some more obscure and odd cameos' from our favorite stars in the world of sports.

Shawn Pyfrom is amazingly astute and mature for a man of his age. At only 21, he already has some fine ideas and ideals. Starpulse talked to him recently about his past work, his current role as the gay Andrew Van De Camp in "Desperate Housewives," his upcoming movie, and more.

We heard that you just turned 21 in August. Happy Birthday!

Thank you. It's very exciting to be 21.

Why?

I would be lying if I said that I hadn't had a few drinks before then, but every time you go to a place that features alcohol, like a bar, club, or restaurant, it's nice to be able to get a dri...

Helen Hunt Hates Playing The Boss

September 11th, 2007 10:37am EDT
Helen Hunt
Hollywood actress Helen Hunt was so scared of appearing bossy in her directorial debut Then She Found Me, she took on the lead role herself. The Oscar winner admits working both sides of the camera allowed her to spend less time frantically instructing actors.

She says, "I had 27 days to make the movie, and I literally don't think I could have made it with another actress in the part. I couldn't have made her work all night and not sleep, I couldn't have made her change in the middle of the street and run to the next location, and I didn't have time to explain the movie to more than o...
