Celebrities With Freckles
A bunch of stars in Hollywood have freckles, but you may not realize it because they are often plastered in make-up for films and red carpet events.

Lucy Liu is one of those stars. She was born in Queens, N.Y., to Taiwanese immigrants and has a smattering of freckles on her face.

She currently stars as Dr. Joan Watson on the popular CBS series "Elementary" and is known for films such as "Kill Bill," "Kung Fu Panda" and "Charlie's Angels."

'Road Trip' Arrives On Blu-ray May 15

5/5/2012 7:39am EDT
Road Trip
In the raunchy comedy "Road Trip," Josh (Breckin Meyer), a student at a college in Ithaca, NY, videotapes his one-night stand with beautiful sorority girl Beth (Amy Smart). A few days later, Josh discovers that one of his friends accidentally mailed the homemade porn tape to his girlfriend, Tiffany (Rachel Blanchard), who is spending some time with her family in Austin, TX.

Chris Evans Wants A Woman With A 'Good Soul' & A 'Good A**'

4/30/2012 10:58am EDT
Chris Evans
Chris Evans has dated many beautiful women, including actresses Jessica Biel and Amy Smart. But he's confessed that he's picky when it comes to dating. But he knows what he likes.

Evans told Playboy, "I like strange things. I wish you could see some of the girls I have genuinely had crushes on in my life. They're not the girls you would assume.

"I like girls who are self-deprecating. I like girls who can make fun of themselves... and I like generosity. I like compassionate people. I'm not looking for some businesswoman who's out there making millions and just here to take the world by sto...

'Shameless' Actress Amy Smart Teams Up With ASPCA

4/9/2012 11:10am EDT
Amy Smart
Animal lover Amy Smart is helping the ASPCA and PetArmor launch a new campaign to provide affordable healthcare to pets.

The PetArmor Protection Promise will see PetArmor donate 20,000 flea and tick protection treatments to shelter pets nationwide, with people able to visit the PetArmor Facebook page and choose what shelter they would like to donate a treatment to, just by "liking" the page.

PetArmor is the first EPA-approved generic flea and tick treatment with firpronil for both dogs and cats. It provides the same proven flea and tick protection as Frontline Top Spot, the leading br...

'Shameless' Recap: 'Father's Day'

2/6/2012 12:33pm EST
Shameless isn't a perennial feel-good Sunday night doozy, like the typical start-of-the-week programs that occupy that particular corner of television airwaves. And yet it's disguised as one, what with its upbeat intro, yellow-hued color scheme and boisterous clan of characters. At its chore, Shameless is a sad drama about a poverty-stricken family and their woes of addiction. But what separates Shameless from run-of-the-mill melodrama is the fierce will of each member of the Gallagher family. There's no time to be sad about their absent mother or drunkenly abrasive father, Frank (William H...

Top Celebrity Fashion Fails Of 2011
Failure is such a harsh word isn't it? To tell someone that something they've created is a "fail" is just wrong… but let's face it, we all love to hate a little bit.

To those opposed to pointing out the bad in life there's a place for you, we ran our fashion hits of 2011 yesterday. To the rest of you H8ers, here's a little pictorial look back at some fashion disasters of 2011. Enjoy!

Amy Smart Recycled & Composted Her Wedding Trash

11/19/2011 10:30am EST
Amy Smart
Amy Smart ensured her wedding to TV carpenter Carter Oosterhouse was as eco-friendly as possible by recycling trash after the ceremony.

The star snubbed a white wedding for a green one when she exchanged vows with Oosterhouse in his native Michigan in September.

Oosterhouse tells, "Our wedding was very green. We had 220 people there and only one bag of trash, not even a full bag. We recycled everything, we composted everything."

The newlyweds are now looking for a new house to share, and Smart hopes they will be able to install energy-efficient solar panels on the roof of the...

Fashion Fails: Olivia Wilde, Amy Smart, And Ginnifer Goodwin

8/13/2011 12:00pm EDT
Olivia Wilde
What is that supposed to be, anyway, Olivia Wilde? This retro-esque, see-through, polka-dotted... thing is the front-runner for our Fashion Fails of the week! Olivia wore the outfit to the UK premiere of Cowboys & Aliens - we dig everything above the neck, like the lipstick and the hairband. But everything else is no!

Amy Smart looks more like our mom than a Hollywood star in this flower print, see-though gown. To make things worth, the earthy feel of her outfit does not go with the metallic heels and purse.

Ginnfer Goodwin looks like she is filling in for Dolly Parton or a series o...

Bai Ling Will Mow You Down

4/2/2010 12:24pm EDT
Bai Ling
Bai Ling showed up at Tom Clancy's "Splinter Cell: Conviction" video game launch in Hollywood yesterday wearing practically nothing and holding a machine gun.

In other words, it was status quo for the attention-seeking actress.

Maybe she learned how to shoot while serving in the People's Liberation Army, which she enlisted in when she was just 14. The authoritarian atmosphere of the Army didn't suit Ling, who was accused of insubordination for use of tobacco and alcohol. She turned to acting instead.

The Chinese actress most recently starred in "Crank 2: High Voltage" with Jason Statham...

Golden Globes Fashion 2010 - The Ladies

1/18/2010 11:45am EST
Golden Globes Fashion 2010
Many of the ladies sizzled on the red carpet at last night's Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif. Purple was a major pick of the evening, as Sandra Bullock, Fergie, Heidi Klum and Jane Krakowski demonstrated.

As usual black was a very popular color, and stars like Jennifer Aniston, Mariah Carey, Halle Berry, Heather Graham, Vera Farmiga and Penelope Cruz looked fab.

There wasn't a lot of bad fashion, although Tina Fey's billowing skirt was a bit too much, and Rita Wilson's flower pattern dress was simply too floral.

What did you think of last night's red carpet fashion? Who...

Dress Battle: Olivia Wilde Vs. Amy Smart

Olivia Wilde and Amy Smart
Both Olivia Wilde and Amy Smart showed some skin at the 2009 Environmental Media Awards in Hollywood on Sunday. Which star looks sexier? More photos after the jump...

Olivia was told her career would flop if she didn't lie about her marital status. She got married when she was just 19 and admits casting bosses advised her to hide her relationship so she would appear attainable to male fans.

Proving herself to be a major sex-symbol, Amy's topless scene in the comedy Road Trip shot her to movie stardom.

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

4/13/2009 8:57am EDT
17 Again
I must admit that two weeks ago, I grossly underestimated how popular "Fast & Furious" would be. The film captured the title of highest grossing opening weekend for a car-themed movie by taking in $72.5 million. I think it's important to note this, because I believe I'm an excellent judge of movies, but I admit the movies I recommend will not always reflect the average American movie patron's opinion.

The time and financial constraints of the writers' strike are being felt this TV pilot season. The broadcast networks are developing half the number of pilots they usually do, ordering presentations in lieu of pilots for some and giving others the straight to series order.

Aside from NBC, which announced its schedule ahead of the pack last week, the networks have kept their plans for fall shrouded in mystery. We'll learn more during the networks' May upfronts. While we can't make any guarantees about which series will get the vote of confidence, here are some promising players to keep...
