20 Celebrities With Dimples

20 Celebrities With Dimples
A few stars in the entertainment industry have been blessed with dimples, making them appear forever young. Some celebs' indented cheeks are more prominent than others, but we find both kinds equally appealing.

Australian model Miranda Kerr has very visible dimples on her cheeks. Whenever she smiles, her dimples appear. She is most known for her work as a Victoria's Secret Angel and her (now ended) marriage to actor Orlando Bloom.

Kerr has her own skincare line, Kora Organics. She once told Cosmpolitan magazine that she uses coconut oil for her beautiful skin, shiny hair and slim body.

Kim Kardashian
Can you believe 2013 is coming to a close already? At least 2013 will leave a lasting legacy when it comes to Fashion Fails. We present The Failies, the worst in fashion this year - along with some surprise special categories you have to see to believe.

Fashion Fails: Perez Hilton, Anna Sophia Robb, Alyson Hannigan, And More

May 18th, 2013 1:07pm EDT
Perez Hilton
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Above we have Perez Hilton once again gracing us with his fashion failure, this time putting on his worst OshKosh B'Gosh look. The "classy" hat puts it over the top.

AnnaSophia Robb looks like she's wearing wrapping paper, and not in the sexy "it's your birthday, unwrap me" way. We'd be afraid of walking in this thing; it looks like it'd just rip in half.

Cat Deely's snake/gator dress has an odd assortment of colors and lo...

Mikhail Baryshnikov Destroyed Lea Thompson's Ballet Dreams

March 3rd, 2012 9:01am EST
Mikhail Baryshnikov
Back To The Future star Lea Thompson has ballet superstar Mikhail Baryshnikov to thank for her acting career because he told her she would never make it professionally as a dancer.

The criticism destroyed her ballet dreams when she was 20, but he was right and she immediately found success as an actress.

Thompson tells WENN, "I was in American Ballet II when I was 20 and Baryshnikov was the head of that and it came the moment when he had to say whether we would advance to the company or not. He said, 'You're a lovely dancer but you're too stocky.'

"I was 98 pounds and I was like, 'I c...

84th Annual Academy Awards - Red Carpet Fashion (See Pictures!)

February 27th, 2012 2:39am EST
Oscars 2012
The Academy Awards aren't just about the movies - they're about the fashion and what the stars wore on the red carpet at the year's biggest event.

This year, much like the ceremony itself, there were few surprises and all the stars looked fabulous on the red carpet outside the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. Well, okay - Kristen Wiig's brown J. Mendel dress and Meryl Streep's gold Lanvin gown? Not so much.

This year's highlights include Angelina Jolie looking stunning - although also a bit thin - in a black Atelier Versace dress that's almost an exact match of the one Jennifer Aniston wore ...

Lea Thompson: 'I Have A Cat Called Stinky Pete & He Is A Slut'

February 17th, 2012 10:41am EST
Lea Thompson
Lea Thompson has her crafty cat to thank for her new movie as scheming Greg Kinnear's wife in comedy thriller "Thin Ice" because she would never have met the film's writer/director if her pet hadn't been scouring the neighborhood for food scraps.

The actress was on the hunt for a really challenging movie role when Jill Sprecher called to say she had the actress' cat.

Thompson explains, "I have a cat called Stinky Pete and he is a slut. He goes to everybody's house and pretends he's got no house and he's hungry.

"My neighbour, Jill Sprecher, called me up and said, 'We have your cat'. We w...

The actress played Marty McFly's mom - and smitten school pal - in the time travel movies, and she's hoping there might be a role for her when the musical hits Broadway.

She says, "I played Sally Bowles on Broadway and that was fun playing a drug addict. They're talking about putting Back To The Future on Broadway which would be interesting.

"(Co-star) Christopher Lloyd and I could still be in it. I could sing, 'My son, ...

'Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew': One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

March 3rd, 2008 10:49am EST
Chyna
Without The Office or 30 Rock to get me through these cold Thursday nights, I’ve had to turn to VHI to fill my TV watching needs (because God forbid I actually, you know, pick up a book or something). Thankfully they have put the kibosh on "I Love the 80's" reruns. I like that show just as much as the next person, but how many times can I see Lea Thompson wax nostalgic about Hyper Color t-shirts? (Answer: 11).

Now, instead of filling the air waves with the comedic stylings of Rick Springfield, comically riffing on Ms. Pac Man, we get celebrities in rehab! Except they aren’t exactly ce...
