Mr. and Mrs. Smith
It is widely acknowledged that workplace romances are a definite no-no; clearly, some famous actors and actresses didn't get the memo. From classic romantic duos Bogey/Bacall and Spencer/Tracy to contemporary pairings like "Bennifer" and "Brangelina", since the inception of cinema, thespians have taken on-set relationships from reel-life to real-life.

Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland's hearts skipped a beat while filming Flatliners (1990). Tom Cruise admired a young Aussie actress named Nicole Kidman and had her cast opposite him in Days of Thunder. The movie Seven ended with Gwynet...

Spotlight On Celebs Who Beat Cancer

June 13th, 2008 9:12am EDT
Melissa Etheridge
As a society we are mesmerized by the lifestyles of the rich and famous and, as evidenced by websites and tabloids that line supermarket checkouts, we want to be in the know when it comes to style icons, role models and, of course, our favorite heartthrobs. But sometimes our innocent curiosity about our favorite celebs can turn into full-throttled admiration and inspiration when "our" celebs do something courageous.

Perhaps the most courageous thing we've admired in the recent past is the struggle of cancer that some celebs have undergone and beaten. Being a successful (and often wea...

Celeb's Dads Who Won't Be The King Of The Castle This Father's Day

June 12th, 2008 8:45am EDT
Jon Voight
He was the guy who took the training wheels off our bikes, let us jump off the top of the fridge when Mom wasn't looking, and the one whose admiration and respect was hard earned and beyond gratifying.

For the lucky majority, Father's Day is an opportunity to express what we usually fail to: how much the guidance of a paternal figure has touched our lives for the better. But what of the unlucky few for whom the idea of Father's Day is a kick in the ribs? Which stars won't be buying a tie, power tools or steak dinner for the old man come June 15?

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.
