Legend Tony Curtis has died...here is the article from the Associated Press:
LAS VEGAS - The Clark County coroner says actor Tony Curtis has died.
Coroner Mike Murphy says Curtis died at 9:25 p.m. MDT Wednesday at his Las Vegas area home of a cardiac arrest.
Curtis, who had heart bypass surgery in 1994, began his acting career as a 1950s heartthrob but became a respected actor with such films as "The Defiant Ones" and "Sweet Smell of Success.
"The Defiant Ones" brought him an Oscar nomination in 1958 for his portrayal of a racist escaped convict handcuffed to a black escapee, Sidney Poitier. The following year, he co-starred in one of the most acclaimed film comedies ever, Billy Wilder's "Some Like It Hot."
As you know, he starred with my Marilyn in that film. A legend is gone. Here are some photos of Mr. Curtis.

Ok, I admit it, I'm sucked in this season. Who else is watching with me? My predictions for top 3 are: Rick Fox and partner, Jennifer Grey and partner, and Brandi and partner. I loved Jennifer Grey last night! Wow, what an amazing figure! Here are some pics!

With the first installment of the final Harry Potter film coming out very soon, I wanted to include some of my favorite photos of Emma. I think she is absolutely gorgeous and am not really sure why she chopped all her hair off, but love her all the same. Who can resist Hermione?

I didn't know much about Greta Garbo until I came across an article on her. She was originally born in Stockholm to a a poor family. Her family was so poor, that she was basically adopted out to a benefactor.
Garbo was discovered by Swedish director Mauritz Stiller at 19 years of age. She then headed out for New York, then to Hollywood and went on to star in 24 films.
Then, just as quickly as she began, she quit the business. At the age of 36, no one saw another film with her in it. She never discussed why she left the business, and continued to live a relatively unknown life until her death.

I came across an article on Fox News today and thought it was interesting. There are so many in Hollywood who can't handle the pressure. It amazes me that actors who began their careers as child actors were able to stay grounded and grow up in such a tough industry. Here are some examples of those who have made it.
