Jim Caviezel
Movie star Jim Caviezel has accused Hollywood of turning its back on him for playing Jesus Christ.

The actor played Jesus in religious epic The Passion of the Christ, and reveals director Mel Gibson warned him the iconic role would wreck his acting career.

Appearing at the First Baptist Church of Orlando in Florida on Saturday night, Caviezel revealed, "He (Gibson) said, 'You'll never work in this town again.' I told him, 'We all have to embrace our crosses...' I told him, 'Mel, this is what I believe. We all have a cross to carry. I have to carry my own cross. If we don't carry our cro...

The hip-hop star was jailed earlier this month for parole violation after he and his wife Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle were detained by police officers who allegedly found drugs during a search of the couple's car.

The arrest came just months after he was freed from a previous stint behind bars on weapons possession charges. The rapper is adamant court officials should have taken into consideration his efforts to me...

Russell Brand
British comic Russell Brand never takes death threats seriously - despite receiving a barrage of nasty notes over the years.

The funnyman was targeted by hate mail after he made a joke about former President George W. Bush at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2008 - his gags likening Britney Spears to Christ and poking fun at the Jonas Brothers' purity vows also led to a series of threats.

However, Brand is adamant he will never let hate mail affect him - because he doesn't want to live his life in fear.

He tells Playboy magazine, "I was surprised my agency forwarded them along to me. It ...
