Dirty Dancing
The infamous routine Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey performed in "Dirty Dancing" has been voted the greatest ever movie dance.

The stars' steps came out on top in the poll, carried out by LoveFilm in celebration of the release of dance movie remake "Footloose" later this month.

John Travolta and Uma Thurman's moves in 1994's "Pulp Fiction" wiggled their way into second place, while Gene Kelly's iconic dance scene in "Singin' in the Rain" made a splash at number three.

Other dances to make the top five in the poll include Jon Heder's comedy routine in "Napolean Dynamite," and Travo...

Step Up
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.

Actors Who Have Transitioned From TV To Film

Jennifer Garner
For some actors, it is hard to make the crucial transition into film as a television star. Especially if you are typecast as a certain character and most people can't think of you as anyone else (for example, Matt LeBlanc as Joey on Friends). Television actors put their careers on the line when they leave their steady jobs to branch out into the film world, and they either make it or they don't. Here are the top television stars who managed to hold their own in the film world.

Slideshow: Stars Who've Added A Little Meat On Their Bones But We Love Anyway

Jessica Simpson skinny and curvy
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.

Take Russell Crowe and Tom Hanks, for example. Crowe packed on the pounds to play Jeffre...

The following are some artists that even if you're an indie rocker with impeccable taste, there comes a time where you have to start admitting these guys are good.

The Best and Worst of John Travolta

December 4th, 2008 11:43am EST
John Travolta
In recent years, it's become hip to pick on John Travolta for his movie choices. It's strange, considering not many actors can say that they've starred in three truly iconic films (see numbers 1, 3, and 6 on the "best" list). He's also achieved longevity that many actors can only dream of, due in large part to his genuine, "good guy" persona. So, sure, he's made some bad films. Who hasn't? His good movies still outnumber the bad ones.

Since John is putting on the dog in the new animated hit, "Bolt," we thought it would be a good time to take a look at some notable films from Travolta's...

Some people may find it cute that their man has a tubby gut whereas some people find it nauseating. In Hollywood, the belly is a sure sign of a man letting himself go and not trying to stay young and pretend he's still a fresh Hollywood actor. Stars have to be perfect, attractive and fit all the time so there comes a time in their career where they get fed up with being so self image savvy. What's wrong with relaxing, packing on the pounds and letting your gut hang over those Diesel jeans? We're talking about the beer gut and these guys don't have a problem showing it off whether it's prett...

The Five Best & Worst Films Starring John Travolta

April 10th, 2008 2:00pm EDT
Grease
John Travolta has been acting for over 30 years since his burst onto the scene as hot disco stud Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever. In the early 80s he went into an acting slump, starring in disappointing films left and right.

Then he made his comeback in 1994 as Vincent Vega in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. Since then, he has been in dozens of movies, been nominated for two Academy Awards and won a Golden Globe. Travolta is now a little older, a little chubbier and a little balder, but we still admire his work as he continues to dance his way onto the silver screen.

Deluxe Reissue of the Bee Gees' Multiplatinum Collection Available September 18

The Bee Gees
LOS ANGELES -- The Bee Gees were already established hitmakers in the U.S. and the U.K. when the group became an unstoppable musical force in 1975. In four short years, Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb rose to international superstardom as they recorded a string of worldwide hits, sold 180 million records worldwide and helped define an era with the Grammy-winning Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. The Brothers Gibb capped their amazing run in 1979 with the multiplatinum Bee Gees Greatest, a double album spotlighting the group's meteoric run of R&B dance hits between 1975 and 1979.

The Bee Gees
The Bee Gees' phenomenal success in the 1970s often obscures the fact that by the time the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack redefined R&B dance music, the trio already had more than ten albums and a string of worldwide hits under their belts. The November 7 release of The Studio Albums 1967-1968 - the initial installment of the first-ever catalog upgrade for the group - shows that The Brothers Gibb possessed the musical Midas touch from the very beginning.

The Studio Albums 1967-1968 is the definitive collection of the five-piece Bee Gees lineup that rocketed to fame in the late 1960s: ...
