Physical appearance is a key component of a celebrity's life. Living under a microscope, celebrities face enormous pressure to maintain Godlike levels of corporeal attractiveness, especially women.

Male celebrities are definitely expected to be in good shape too, but they have a lot more wiggle room. If a man's face isn't entirely Adonic or if he consumes one too many brewskies, it's ok - double chins and love handles are not career killers for men. In fact, they sometimes do the exact opposite.

Now On DVD: 'I Am Legend'

I Am Legend
What would you do if you were the sole living person on earth? Brilliant scientist Robert Neville (Will Smith) holes himself up in a Manhattan apartment with his sidekick German Shepherd, making daily forays into the city for food and companionship with mannequins. Sound Cast Away-ish to anyone?

The comparison ends there. Unlike "Cast Away," "I Am Legend," follows the last man on Earth as he struggles to survive while fending off the infected survivors of a devastating vampiric plague.

Somehow immune to the plague that killed millions of people, Neville is desperate to find oth...
