    Anne Hathaway racing faster than the speed of light? Tom Cruise in the line of fire? Yeah, right.

But without action films' shaky cam to distract from their facial features, how much do the daredevils resemble their A-list other halves?  Click below to see!

  • Lady Gaga: Why Did She Shave Her Head?
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 14, 2012
    Wondering why Lady Gaga shaved her hair off earlier this week? Nope, she wasn't following in Kellie Pickler's footsteps — the 26-year-old musical superstar was simply making way for some new body art. On Thursday night — in the middle of her Fame fragrance launch party at New York City's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum — Gaga, wearing nothing but lingerie, chose to have an angelic cherub tattooed on the back of her head. The singer is hardly the only celebrity to get inked in the past few weeks.

  • Amanda Bynes Has Been Banned from Driving by a Judge
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 14, 2012
    Amanda Bynes is getting in trouble in her car what feels like every other day. In another new development surrounding Bynes and her car troubles, a judge has officially ordered Bynes to hand over her keys and stay off the road. As a suspended license hasn't reportedly stopped Bynes from getting behind the wheel, People reports that L.A. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel has said that Amanda is forbidden from driving. During a hearing on Wednesday, the District Attorney's Office specifically asked the judge to take a look a the situation regarding Bynes' suspended license. But Bynes — who is currently facing charges of DUI and two counts of hit-and-run — herself was not in the courtroom. Her attorney Bob Wilson attended the hearing on behalf of Bynes instead. According to the Los Angeles Times, Bynes' license was suspended by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) — but the actress was reportedly stopped on Sunday by police because her headlights weren't on. TMZ also posted pictures of Amanda allegedly driving on Tuesday, and then again, on Thursday. All of this has to make you wonder why the 26-year-old actress doesn't just hire a chauffeur for the time being. Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Nick and Vanessa Lachey Welcome Their Baby Boy, Camden John
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 13, 2012
    It's time for Nick Lachey to start writing some lullabies. Lachey, 38, and his wife Vanessa Minnillo, 31, welcomed the birth of their first son on Wednesday, People reports. "We are incredibly proud to announce the birth of our beautiful baby boy, Camden John Lachey,” the couple said in a statement. According to the statement, Camden was born at 6:54 PM. He weighed in at a whopping eight pounds, nine ounces and measured at 21 inches long. Lachey and Minnillo have been together forever, so it was about time that they started a family. They began dating in 2006 after Lachey divorced his first wife, Jessica Simpson, that same year. Lachey and Minnillo briefly split in 2009, but the breakup only lasted several months. The couple finally tied the knot on July 15, 2011 during an intimate ceremony on Sir Richard Branson's private Island in the British Virgin Islands. Now, they have just expanded their family with the birth of little Camden. "Love has truly been redefined for both of us," the couple said. Congrats to the Lacheys on this happy news.

  • Katie Holmes Moves on from Tom Cruise with Her Fashion Debut
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 12, 2012
    Just two months after A-list couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise parted ways, Holmes has found her rebound: fashion. The actress formerly known as Mrs. Cruise jumpstarted a career as a fashion designer just prior to her divorce and the breakout fashionista debuted her first line ever, Holmes & Yang, at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York City Wednesday. While Holmes' fashion debut was anticipated for anyone used to writing celebrity headlines, Wednesday's presentation was closed to most members of the media. And while the actress already has a marketable name attached to her clothing line (her own, of course), buyers might not jump at the buzzy bait. "When you go in and you show your clothing, you think that they’re going to buy the whole collection,” she told WWD during an interview on Tuesday. “And when they don’t, you’re like, ‘What do you mean? It all goes together. So what do we do with this?’ So that was new, but I think that’s kind of a life thing — ‘What, you don’t want all of me?’” The Cruise girls don't really seem like they are women who take no for an answer — but this whole fashion business is a new game for Holmes. Only time will tell if Holmes' eye for fashion will allow her name to stand alongside Donatella Versace, Diane von Furstenberg, and Vera Wang's. As for her daughter, Suri Cruise? No doubt the fashion-forward tyke will soar in the industry.  Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Meet Rebel Wilson's Alter-Ego: Gangsta Rapper 'B***h' 'Rebelicious'  — VIDEO
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 12, 2012
    Funny girl Rebel Wilson doesn't just stop at stand-up gigs and comedic films — when it comes to making her fans laugh, it seems she will do anything in her power for a giggle or two. Even if it means putting on a white jumpsuit and impersonating Missy Elliott. In a new video from Bullett TV, the Bridesmaids star introduces us to rapper "b***h" Rebelicious, Wilson's hip-hop alter-ego. So how did Rebelicious get her start in rap? "I was walking down the street and this guy come up to me and was like, 'Ay, you! You look like you could rap," she says in an Australian attempt at a gangster-like voice. "I'm like, 'I've never tried it before. I always thought maybe ballet or politics or something that would be my thing.' But he's like, 'No girl. You could rap.' I was three years of age, so you know, that guy just really knew how to pick talent." Cut to a shot of Rebelicious cupping her breasts as she leans against a fence. Hey, rappers should be equal opportunity self-gropers.  Rebelicious even has her own gangsta accessories: "I got this from another skank after punching her in the face," she says as she shows off her bling necklace. "She wouldn't give it voluntarily, so I punched her and she gave it to me." See below for your introduction to Rebelicious. "The life is good," isn't it? Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Kathy Bates Undergoes a Double Mastectomy
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 12, 2012
    It's been a tough few weeks for Kathy Bates. The 64-year-old actress, who most recently starred in Midnight in Paris and The Office, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, People reports. After doctors discovered a lump in her breast a few weeks ago and "after much consideration," Bates — who beat ovarian cancer in 2003 — underwent a double mastectomy. "Luckily, I don't have to undergo radiation or chemo," Bates told People. "My family calls me Kat because I always land on my feet, and thankfully this is no exception." Bates won't be slowed down by her operation. The upbeat and positive actress still plans to attend the Primetime Emmy Awards on Sept. 23. "My doctors have assured me I'm going to be around for a long time," she said. "I'm looking forward to getting back to work and doing what I love to do." Hollywood.com has yet to hear back from Bates' rep. Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat. More: 'Two and a Half Men': Charlie's Back... As Kathy Bates?

  • Canadian Justin Bieber Surely Knows How to Play Hockey, Right?
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Sep 12, 2012
    The whole world knows that when Justin Bieber is handed a mic, he surely won't let any of his fans down. But what happens outside the music arena? Does Bieber have talents that could warrant him a career away from his pop vocals? Well, if Bieber feels up to putting on some pads and stepping out onto the ice, a National Hockey League farm team has offered him a position. A what? Yes, you read that correctly. Bieber is Canadian after all — and well, it's safe to say that he has had some experience on the ice before (in December, he stepped out to shoot a few pucks with pro team, the Toronto Maple Leafs). "Very rarely do you see this combination of skill and toughness," Bakersfield Condors Head Coach/Director of Hockey Operations Matt O'Dette says in a statement to E!. "We share a common Canadian heritage since we both hail from Ontario." "I've scouted some video of him online skating with my hometown team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and I think he could provide some elusive speed up front for us," O'Dette adds. "Plus, he's a right-handed shot, which we've been looking to add. I think if we paired him on a line with [Robby] Dee and [Peter] Boyd we'd be tough to beat." If Bieber does decide to take this minor league team up on its offer, at least he won't have to worry about picking out a theme song for when he steps out on the ice. Can't you just hear "Baby, baby, baby" playing on repeat throughout a whole game? While for the older generation this song might get tiring, the Beliebers just can't get enough of 18-year-old pop sensation's sweet voice. Talk about a built-in fan base. The Beliebers would put the Mighty Ducks' cheering squads to shame. Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.
