18 Female Celebrities Who Graduated From College
The ability to entertain is not the only asset most female celebrities possess. Quite a few of them furthered their education after high school and graduated with top honors from college. Of course, you do not need a college degree to become a successful actor or singer. However, quite often a celebrity, female or male, put their passion on hold to complete their education or continue working while attending college. The following list of the most educated female celebrities may surprise you.

The "American Idol" season four winner Carrie Underwood graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor'...

Julia Stiles Makes Versatile Return To WIGS With 'Blue' And 'Pal
Julia Stiles charmed America in 10 Things I Hate About You and has continued to win audiences over ever since. She's outdone herself as the title character in the award-winning series, Paloma, which is set to debut later this spring. She recently took time out of her busy schedule to chat with BFTV about what's ahead on Blue, the making of Paloma, and if she might return to Dexter.

"It was the very first scene that [writer-director] Rodrigo [Garcia] ever wrote that caught my attention," she said of what drew her to Blue, the fan-favorite series in which she plays a single mother who is al...

Jaimie Alexander of "The Last Stand" (above) was one of the few celebs who showed some skin on the red carpet in a low-cut black Marc Bouwer gown. Most opted for more conservative ensembles in black, navy blue, and other neutrals.

Julia Stiles Opens Up About Playing An Escort On Internet Series 'Blue'

Julia Stiles
Actress Julia Stiles had strong reservations about playing a prostitute in upcoming Internet series Blue because she feels "shy" stripping off for sex scenes.

The Bourne Identity star plays a single mother who becomes a call girl to make ends meet in a new program, but Stiles admits she was initially hesitant to take on the project due to the risqué premise.

She tells the New York Daily News, "I'm kind of scared of the Internet and I wasn't that interested in the idea of a YouTube show until I read the script. I was hooked from the first scene... I was always a little bit wa...

TV On DVD: 'Dexter: Season Five'

8/18/2011 3:10pm EDT
This week, CBS Home Entertainment released season five of Showtime's hit series Dexter on DVD and Blu-Ray. Here's my look inside the DVD version.

The Show

After a spectacular fourth season (I don't know about you, but I have a really hard time watching John Lithgow in those 3rd Rock from the Sun reruns now), Dexter had a tough act to follow. While I don't dislike season five as much as some fans, I can see where their disappointment comes from - it's a worthwhile go, but the standard was set high and it didn't quite get there.

Julia Stiles (10 Things I Hate About You) is the season...

Ever since John Travolta made his signature moves in 1977's "Saturday Night Fever," moviegoers can't get enough of male flesh dancing on the big screen. The following decade, Kevin Bacon rebelled in "Footloose" and Gregory Hines and Mikhail Baryshnikov stole the show in "White Nights." Dancing men are surprisingly hot.

Married Dexter co-stars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter separated over the summer - four months before they announced plans to divorce.

The actors, who play brother and sister on the hit drama, confirmed earlier this week they had split after two years together.

Carpenter moved to officially end the marriage on Thursday, when she filed divorce papers in Los Angeles Superior Court, and the documents reveal the pair actually parted ways back in August.

Julia Stiles has blasted reports she is romantically involved with her "Dexter" co-star Michael C. Hall, insisting she had "absolutely nothing to do" with his marriage split from Jennifer Carpenter.

The actress joined the cast of the hit crime drama earlier this year and bonded well with leading actor Hall.

But she has shot down rumors their friendship has become anything other than platonic following the news of his divorce from Carpenter, who plays his onscreen sister in the drama.

'Dexter' 5.11 'Hop A Freighter' Review

12/5/2010 10:01pm EST
Counting tonight, there are only two episodes of Dexter's fifth season left, so it's no surprise that last week saw Dexter and Lumen fall into bed together and Jordan Chase reach new heights of creepiness. Now, however, it's time to move all the pieces into place for next week's season finale. Next-to-last episodes can either be filler, or fantastic. In this case, it was pretty fantastic.

Post-their romantic interlude, Dexter and Lumen are discussing how they're going to take down Jordan when he realizes that they're being watched. He believes it's Jordan, but finds the equipment has ...

Dexter Season 5
Everyone’s waiting for the return of Dexter after the shocking finale of last season. Dexter himself will have plenty to deal with, but now he’ll be joined by some new characters. Four guest stars this year include Peter Weller, Jonny Lee Miller, Shawn Hatosy and Julia Stiles.

“We have four bits of very strong casting that are characters that come in and interact with Dexter's journey this year,” producer Sara Colleton said. “It's going to be a very interesting experience to see Dexter bounce tennis balls from them.”

Last year’s big guest star, John Lithgow, was a powerhouse. This quarte...

Celebrities And Their Alma Maters

Celebrities have the reputation of being talented, gorgeous, rich and famous. But if they weren't stars, what would they be doing? Some never even finished high school and some were brought up in the theater, never knowing anything outside of the world of acting. However, there are a handful of stars who attended college and some even hold a degree, proving education is important to them as well. Here are a few of our favorite celebrities and their Alma Maters.

Actress Ashley Judd attended the University of Kentucky when she was younger but dropped out to pursue acting. Clearly, she exce...

Dominic West's Sex Scene Torment

Dominic West
Dominic West dreads filming sex scenes - because he is frequently "star-struck" by his beautiful female co-stars. The Wire actor struggles with nerves before disrobing in front of his leading ladies, admitting he lacks the confidence to strut onto the set naked.

He tells Britain's Reveal magazine, "I felt self-conscious. Whenever I have a love scene with a beautiful woman, it is always me who's naked. I did it with Calista Flockhart in Midsummer Night's Dream and I was the idiot in Mona Lisa Smile, surrounded by all these gorgeous women such as Julia Stiles and Maggie Gyllenhaal."

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Talented & Naturally Likeable

12/19/2009 7:20pm EST
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
The Golden Globe nominated movie (500) Days of Summer will be released on DVD on Tuesday, December 22. The film's main character, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, may only be 28 years old,

but he has been in Hollywood for almost all of his life and we hope he's not going anywhere soon.

Joseph began acting as a child appearing in several made-for-television movies and a few episodes of Family Ties but made his film debut in Beethoven in the early nineties. In 1994, he was cast in the lead role in Disney's Angels in the Outfield and had a recurring role on the hit series Roseanne for the next few y...

Top 10 Films With Numbers In The Title

9/26/2009 1:52pm EDT
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!

Ethan Peck
ABC Family is re-launching the teen comedy hit 10 Things I Hate About You as a weekly TV series. 10 years after the original launched Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles to stardom, the series picks up when the Stratford sisters and Patrick Verona (the Ledger character) move to San Diego.

Ethan Peck plays the new Verona, and he wanted to be clear he's not trying to take over for the late Ledger. "With all due respect I didn't take any inspiration," Peck said. "When I had my first audition, which was in New York, I hadn't seen the film in about 10 years and I went in sort of with something fre...

Hollywood's Obsession With The Perfect Prom

5/18/2009 9:53am EDT
Prom Night
The Prom. In a way, it's like the pre-wedding experience for girls. The boys, well, their experiences are vastly different. Each gender is loaded with expectations and stereotypes, some that overlap and some that are just blown out of proportion. Not all teens even want to go to prom. But for those that do, be aware of how Hollywood creates unrealistic expectations for teenagers that want to make prom infamous instead of simply enjoyable.

Celebrity Fashion Review: Fair Ladies and Not So Fair Ladies

Lindsay Price
When it comes to the red carpet, there are some ladies who are quite fair. They capture our attention and we can't help but gravitate towards them. Other times, there are ladies who are not so fair and we are left wondering, 'what happened?'

This Week's Fashion Frump: Julia Stiles

11/12/2008 11:12am EST
Julia Stiles
Julia Stiles showed up to a benefit screening of "Quantum of Solace" in New York City on Tuesday wearing a shapeless calf-length shift dress with black tights.

Julia's posture says what we're thinking, "Why bother?" Just a little bit of make-up and perhaps a swept back hairstyle would have helped a little, but not enough to make this outfit look sexy.

What do you think of Julia's outfit? Leave a comment!

Race Matters: Is Hollywood Truly Color Blind When It Comes To On-Screen Romance?

9/29/2008 9:49am EDT
Die Another Day
In John Grisham's bestselling novel "The Pelican Brief," investigative journalist Gray Grantham and law student Darby Shaw uncover a political conspiracy and in the process, end up between the sheets. In the 1993 film version, Darby Shaw (played by Julia Roberts) and Grantham merely share a chaste hug in the film's conclusion. What happened between page and screen? One theory: In the novel Grantham is white; in the film, he's portrayed by Academy-Award winning - and black - actor Denzel Washington.

Beauty & Brains: The Most Educated Celebrities

Natalie Portman
There's nothing better - or more intimidating - than someone with a combination of good looks, lots of money, unbridled talent and intelligence. It's easier to make fun of people like Paris Hilton or Britney Spears, who might possess a few of the aforementioned assets but who are one short of a perfect combination.

But some celebs have it all. Beauty, money, power and an impressive academic pedigree. So here is Starpulse's list of the most erudite celebrities, and some might come as quite a surprise. (Conan O'Brien went to Harvard?)

Heath Ledger: Career Full Of Artistic Risks Cut Short By Early Death; Autopsy Due

1/23/2008 8:31am EST
Heath Ledger
NEW YORK (AP) - Heath Ledger turned down more teen movies after starring in the romantic comedy ''10 Things I Hate About You,'' waiting for the kinds of grueling, intense roles that would become his trademark.

The decision set him on a career path toward ''Brokeback Mountain'' - the film that earned him an Oscar nomination.

Two years later, Ledger was found dead Tuesday by his housekeeper and masseuse - lying naked and face-down at the foot of his bed, with prescription sleeping pills nearby, police said. He was 28.

Shocked fans set up a makeshift memorial of flowers and note...

Soundtrack For 'The Bourne Ultimatum' Features Moby's Remake Of The Movie's Theme Song

8/2/2007 11:48am EDT
The Bourne Ultimatum
(New York, NY) The soundtrack for one of this summer's most anticipated action thrillers, The Bourne Ultimatum, starring Academy Award®-winner Matt Damon, was released July 31 on Decca. Composer John Powell (United 93, The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Identity) once again scored original music for this latest installment in the Bourne series. A new version of Moby's hit song "Extreme Ways," which was the end-title song for the first two movies, is also featured.

Steeped in classical tradition, yet drawn to the idea of turning it on its head, John Powell has composed a series of acclai...
