Many people can only dream about kissing super attractive and charming stars, but it’s not always rainbows and butterflies to those who actually get to. Some actors have faced tense situations with their co-stars, such as filming romantic kissing scenes or experiencing embarrassing moments like falling, and it’s only normal.

And if you happened to eat garlic before a big on-screen smooch, it can be incredibly embarrassing.
The challenging search for love usually takes everyone a good few years — at least for most people. Others are struck by luck and find their special someone in a seemingly orchestrated way, as if planned by destiny.

Statistics state that over the last couple of years, social media usage among teens and tweens has increased by 17%.

These famous parents shield their kiddos from social media as much as they can, and for good reason.
Sometimes, we see people get spoiled by fame. They turn out to not be ready for this kind of public attention: they are rude to fans, and there are scandals all around them.

Sometimes actors deliver performances so believable that it makes the audience forget that they are actually not enemies in the real world.

The celebrities we know today are iconic and when we get the chance of a lifetime to meet them it is just a dream come true, and it is more memorable when they interact with us. It leaves a special mark and warmth on our hearts every time we remember it.
Actors are being fired or they drop out from projects very often and it doesn’t mean that they are not talented enough. It happened to Judy Garland and even to Natalie Portman in Romeo + Juliet. The important part is that a new fit is found and a movie is finished and given to the public for consumption.
Sometimes it seems that celebrities have always been famous. But in reality, they all started their careers like anyone else and had to go to work every day.

It is always hard to find a true friend, even for an ordinary person, let alone a celebrity living in Hollywood, considering that show business is full of competition. Even among famous people, there are real friends who don’t just have fun together but also support each other during difficult times. Their friendships have lasted for years, and it seems that nothing can destroy them.
Thanks to the Internet and social media, some people think that celebrities have it easy. After all, they have tons of money and staff to help them with things. But when it comes to parenthood, we’re all equal. And for many people — including the celebrities in this article — the journey to parenthood included the conscious choice to adopt children.
Actors are total chameleons when it comes to their on-screen characters — whether it’s getting buff and tough for a superhero movie, or losing weight — they prove that they are fully committed at all times. In between filming, some of them let go and try to enjoy life to the fullest — just like we do. The most intimidating character the actors portray on screen can also turn into the cuddliest person in just a matter of months.
78% of leaders who had at least one major negative career event made it to the CEO position. Never giving up is a crucial rule. Being fired can become a new and better page in your life and some celebrities have proven this with their own example.

Some nicknames are not just famous — they’re the main names we recognize people for. Take Sting, for example. Very few people actually know his real name outside of his nickname that later became his stage name. In a similar vein, most people will refer to Jennifer Lopez using her nickname, J.Lo, which is undeniably famous.
It might be difficult to imagine our favorite movie characters played by other actors. After all, it’s like the actors who eventually played the roles were always meant for them, and the directors probably didn’t even consider other artists for the part. However, looking for actors for movies isn’t that different from hiring employees at any other job. That’s why the difficulties of making a choice, as well as a lot of competition, are also present in the film industry.
We tend to perceive celebrities as stars in the sky — it’s extremely hard to reach them, not to mention come into contact with them.

Modern life tends to become a routine making each of us strive for newer and brighter emotions. Oftentimes, the easiest way to experience them is to watch a good movie.

Characters become iconic often because of the actors that portrayed them. This is why it’s so hard to imagine someone else playing our favorite characters.

Not all celebs stay low-key on social media. Many choose to share their social events or their most precious possessions on their public accounts.

In movies, Easter Eggs are hidden treats left by movie makers. The term probably started back in the ’70s when Atari, the video game maker, didn’t give credit to their game designers.
