Every Hollywood star dreams of recognition, respect, and being immortalized on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Stars may win awards from various academies and organizations or receive other citations acknowledging their work, but putting all that aside, nothing is more important than being honored with a glittering star and an etched name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame where everyone passing by can see it and admire it forever.
There are now 2,470 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with the latest addition being Scarlett Johansson. Just days before her latest movie, The Avengers, hits screens this Friday, the sexy star was honored with her own star, joining many other big names in the entertainment industry on the sidewalk in front of Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum.
Scarlett started acting when she was 8 years old, getting her first big break in 1998 in The Horse Whisperer. She is a BAFTA winner and won a Tony Award for her work in the Broadway hit, A View from a Bridge. She is also a four-time Golden Globe nominee.
The actress received her star wearing a mixed print black and white dress with red shoes. Avengers co-star Jeremy Renner, a.k.a. Hawkeye, was on hand to show his support.
When it comes to TV interviews, it’s always best to be prudent about what comes out of the mouth, especially when asked to comment on the questionable actions of others. It could backfire on anyone, and that’s especially true for celebrities.Vanessa Williams, the former Miss America beauty queen, apparently forgot this simple rule when asked by Anderson Copper on Anderson about the world of children’s pageants. Vanessa answered the question by saying:
“When the child is screaming and saying, ‘I don’t want to do this. I don’t feel like doing it.’ When they are using special juice to get them hyped … that’s not my world, and I would never have my kids do that.”
Wendy Dickey, a parent on the reality show Toddlers & Tiaras, was apparently offended by Vanessa’s comments and fired back saying, “Posing nude and having an abortion is ‘not my world’ and I would never have my kids do that … so easy on the judging Vanessa!”
The offended mom was clearly referring to Vanessa’s revelation in her book about an abortion she had in high school and posing for Penthouse when she was younger. Vanessa did not respond when contacted for comment.
As they say in the business, “Those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
For those who love meeting celebrities and seeing them in action, nothing could be cooler than meeting a star and being entertained by him unexpectedly at a favorite hangout. That is exactly what happened at a small comedy club called Meltdown Comics on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood last night.
Patrons of the club who showed up for some laughter and a good time were treated to a surprise performance by none other than Robin Williams, easily one of the funniest men in Hollywood. The star dropped by the comedy club, which hosts a comedy event every Wednesday, unannounced and asked club management if he could perform. Obviously, it would have been the height of idiocy to turn the world-class comedian down.
Robin Williams grabbed the mic and killed it, busting out jokes for almost an hour. Needless to say, the audience was surprised, starstruck, and, of course, laughing out loud.
Jason Trawick is Britney Spears’ newest conservator. The judge in charge of the singer’s conservatorship signed off on papers legally giving Britney’s fiancée the power to co-govern her business and other affairs.
Britney has been in a conservatorship for several years now. Her dad initially arranged the terms to save the singer from financial ruin and properly manage her career when she was in trouble. Ever since the conservatorship was set up, the star’s personal life and career have been back on track.
The news thrilled both Britney and her dad, Jamie Spears. It was Jamie who filed the petition asking the court to add Jason to the conservatorship as co-conservator, which makes perfect sense when you consider that Jason and Britney are about to be married.
Jason Trawick is now legally entitled to decide how Britney spends and earns her money, starting with the $15 million contract Briney is about to sign to sit as a judge for The X Factor.
Heidi Klum certainly stays busy between hosting Project Runway and doing her own modeling, and designing. Not to mention, she’s also in the middle of a divorce from her famous singer husband, Seal.
With so many things going on, you might be tempted to think she’d like to slow things down a bit, but that obviously isn’t the case. The gorgeous model has continued to do what she does best…look sexy for the cameras. Shortly after the star’s nude pose for Allure magazine, the mother of four posed with nothing on again. Well, nothing except beautiful body paint artistically painted all over her body.
The model and reality TV host showed off her beautiful physique again, this time for a cosmetic company, Astor Cosmetic. The company is celebrating its 60th birthday, and Heidi Klum, as the face of the company for the past two years, is helping the European brand “celebrate color” with an ad featuring the message, “to encourage women to use colors all over their body.”
At 38, Heidi can still rock it in a super sexy way!
