They’re rich. They’re famous. They’re some of the most beautiful women in the world. But unfortunately time has not been kind to their acting careers. Hints of promise have been overshadowed by Razzie-worthy performances in some truly awful flicks. But regardless of some stumbles along the way, we still have faith that at least a few of these sirens can step up their game and make themselves well-known for their performances on-screen, not off.

In this day and age where celebs and everyday folks take to their social media pages to share every little detail of their lives, there are still some stars who like to keep their private lives very private.

Super Private Celebrity Couples


Cassie and Diddy

Rumor had it Diddy and Cassie were dating well before they were ever photographed together. Caught up in a love triangle with Cassie and his children’s mother Kim Porter, Diddy snuck around with the “Me & U” singer showing up at the same events but making sure to never arrive or leave together. Recently the two have been more open about their relationship in public and on social media.

Being a celebrity means you trade your privacy for fame and fortune, so you’d think stars would be more careful when they’re out cheating on their partners. You just never know when there could be an overly eager and stealthy paparazzi lurking in the bushes — as these famous cheaters found out the hard way.

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson met on the set of the popular Twilight movie back in 2008. Although they didn’t come out as a couple publicly, their relationship was no secret. Fans of the franchise were just as heartbroken as Pattinson when Us Weekly published photos of Stewart and much older director of Snow White and the Huntsmen Rupert Sanders making out like the plane was going down. Stewart and Pattinson tried to move past her transgressions but they eventually split up. Sanders’ ten-year marriage to wife and model Liberty Ross was also a casualty of their extramarital affair. Ross filed for divorce at the top of this year and is seeking spousal support.

Kristen Stewart Pulls Out Of Movie When Will Smith’s Cast As Love Interest; Thinks He’s A Bit Too Old

I smell a racist…

Kidding! I kid, I kid. That baby isn’t a racist. But seriously, when you think of on-screen chemistry, you probably wouldn’t think that Kristen Stewart and Will Smith could create the spark necessary to carry a movie together. And that seems to be what popped in Stewart’s head recently when she decided to pull out of the new movie Focus starring Will Smith, not because of scheduling conflicts, but because her would-be co-star is too old for her to make love work on-screen. Here’s the skinny:

According to the Huffington Post, the movie is a “con-artist caper.” Here’s the plot according to the Hollywood Reporter:

“Focus is a two-hander about a con man who becomes romantically involved with a novice. He is then thrown off his game when the former flame shows up just as he’s staging an elaborate con in Buenos Aires.”

The movie was originally set to star Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. However, when both actors had to pull out of the project because of other commitments, they were replaced with Academy Award-winner Ben Affleck and Twilight star Kristen Stewart. At one point, Stewart was pretty geeked up about the movie, telling the HuffPo “It’s a comedy. I’m really excited about it.”

Well, she was excited about it until Affleck had to dip out of the movie as well to star in a different picture last December. When the role was finally given to Will Smith, who signed on early this year, it was reported by the Hollywood Reporter in April that she had decided to part ways from the movie. Why? According to Variety, she felt “the age difference between [her and Smith] would be too large a gap.” To clarify, Stewart is 23 while Smith is 44. When Affleck was attached to the movie, she was excited, even though the age difference between them was still substantial–he’s 40.

All of this is interesting considering that just a year ago, Stewart was receiving all kinds of hell from folks for cheating on Robert Pattinson, 27, with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, who is 42. Age ain’t nothin’ but a number Kristen! Especially for her. But honestly, all I want to know is how can you call yourself an actor or actress and pass on a movie because you can’t feign attraction? But then again, the only emotion Stewart is a pro at showing is straight melancholy. Oh well…

A budding relationship can start to grow anywhere but more often than not a relationship will bloom at work. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie weren’t the only celebrities to fall in love at work and they won’t be the last. Here are 15 stars who hooked up with their co-workers when the camera lights went off.

"John Travolta and wife PF"


John Travolta and Kelly Preston starred in the box office bomb The Experts back in 1987 but unfortunately Preston was married at the time. Her marriage ended a year later but it wasn’t until her relationship with actor Charlie Sheen ended that Travolta finally had the chance to snag his leading lady. The couple wed in 1991. Their marriage experienced hardship when their 16-year-old son Jett passed away in 2009. Travolta and Preston have two other children together.

Before They Were Big: Did You Know They Were Child Stars?

Before these men and women were dominating our iPods and lives in general with good music, funny television and dramatic roles that brought us to tears (or made us mad), they were young’ns trying to get their big breaks on the big screen. In movies like The Wood and shows like As The World Turns, they were everywhere before they became stars. Let’s check out their beginnings…

And oh yeah, one or two are young adults…*Kanye shrug*

Christina Milian in The Wood

Christina Milian

Before she was out in these streets singing about the freaky things you should keep on the low with Ja Rule and dipping it low and picking it up slow, Christina Milian was just a young lady with a big ‘ol head of hair, playing the dance partner of young Roland in The Wood. In her short role in the film, she gets upset by Roland and Slim’s nosy attention over Mike and Alicia finally getting to slow dance together. She eventually tells him, “Why don’t you go dance with her then!?” flips her loooong curly hair and makes a dramatic exit. Interesting, this sounds like a scene from most of Milian’s movies…I’m just saying.

From a former slave fighting for his freedom to a boy shipwrecked in the middle of Pacific Ocean with only a tiger as company, this season’s upcoming movies are a range of comedy, action and fantasy with something for any and everyone. Many of these upcoming movies are book and musical adaptations or original features, bringing out some of the biggest stars in film, from Hugh Jackson to Marlon Wayans.

With a slew of movies opening and coming in the next six to eight weeks, Hollywood is expecting a record-breaking $11 billion year in ticket sales. Waiting for the next big movie in theaters this Fall and Winter? Here are a few good movies MN is looking forward to this season:

Django Unchained

If you were wondering where Jamie Foxx has been since his 2011 co-starring role in Horrible Bosses and his 2010 album “Best Night Of My Life,” the entertainer has been working on his starring role as Django in the anticipated movie, Django Unchained.

The latest Quentin Tarantino film seems to be a promising hit in theaters December 25th, with cast members Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington and more. Set in the U.S. South right before the Civil War, formerly freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx) travels across America with bounty hunter Dr. Schultz (Chrisoph Waltz) after he is freed by Schultz from his vicious former owners. In return, Django must hunt down and kill a band of killers, the Brittle Brothers, and Schultz will free him from slavery and help rescue Django’s wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from her slave owner, played by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Ladies Beware! 11 Subtle Signs You’re On The Verge Of An Affair

By Ms. N. Meridian

In light of all the controversy still surrounding the Kristen Stewart/Rupert Sanders affair, let’s take a look at some of the ways affairs actually begin.

For most, affairs aren’t necessarily wrapped up in mere curiosity. Nor are they always about the sensual, sweaty romp most imagine. Sometimes, it’s not even about sex at all.

In actuality, an affair can start from something more basic, like the level of intimacy you lack with your own partner. So before you start planning your rendezvous, ask yourself how you got to this moment in the first place. Here’s a look at eleven subtle signs you’re on the verge of an affair:

 1. Hesitation. Hesitation can happen when someone asks you if you’re in a relationship. Or, if they ask, “So how are things going?” You say, “Well, sort of …” or, “It’s complicated.” The fact that you’re hesitating about an obvious relationship that you’re in reveals that you’re uncertain about your current relationship and where you two stand.

“It’s complicated” in so many words may imply that things aren’t great; that you’re considering a way out. It might even show that if you felt that the right opportunity presented itself, you may cheat.

Let’s Define “Unfaithful”: Is It Still Cheating If You’re Not Married?

July 26th, 2012 - By Alissa Henry

"Kristen and Robert"


When I was in high-school, I told my friend’s mom that I had just broken up with my boyfriend because he cheated on me.

I was stunned when she immediately rolled her eyes and said, “You kids. It’s not cheating if you’re not married.”

When the news of Kristen Stewart “cheating on” Robert Pattinson exploded in the news yesterday, I was reminded of that conversation,  described as a “shocking cheating scandal” the news coverage surrounding this couple has been absolutely hysterical and I just don’t get it.

The backstory is Kristen and Rob met on the set of the 2008 movie “Twilight”. “Twilight” is the first in a series of four vampire-themed fantasy romance movies. The two star in the movies as a couple and predictably became a couple in real-life.  Recently, Kristen starred in Snow White and the Huntsman. Last week a paparazzo snapped pictures of the 22-year-old making out with the movie’s 41-year-old director in a car. Us Weekly ran the story (and a picture) on their front page and, in a bizarre move, both Kristen and the director Rupert Sanders released a statement to People magazine admitting to the actions and apologizing. Rupert’s wife tweeted “Wow” before shutting down her social media accounts and Robert reportedly moved out of the apartment he shared with Kristen.

Twilight has an enormous fan base and many are clearly unable to separate “Robsten” from the “Bella and Edward” married couple they play in movies. But this isn’t about the strange fans who post four minute videos crying and screaming about the news or those who dramatically Tweet “#MyWholeLifeIsALie”. We already know that people put way too much emotional stock in celebrity relationships despite the less-than-stellar track record Hollywood has in the romance department.

The most bizarre thing of the coverage is the fact that Rupert Sanders’ marriage and consequent adultery seems to fall second to Kristen and Rob’s dating relationship and inevitable breakup.

I get that Kristen and Rob are the celebs here and therefore the only reason why Rupert’s philandering is news is because he was smooching Kristen. Still, I find it very strange that dating relationships and marriage are treated as one in the same despite them being very different — one decidedly less serious than the other.

In my estimation, what makes Kristen’s actions so egregious is not that she was probably bumping uglies with a guy other than the boyfriend she’s been shacking up with, but the fact that the man she was potentially having sex with is married with two kids. She released a statement apologizing to Robert, but it’s Liberty Ross, Rupert’s wife, who was the most wronged here. If Kristen is to be vilified it should be because she slept with another woman’s husband and not because she “cheated” on her boyfriend.

This marriage and dating equivocation seems par for the course in Hollywood especially considering that marriages in that town have the life span of a carton of milk. In fact, sometimes the celebrities will date without true commitment for a relatively long time. Look at Brad and Angelina. They’ve been dating much longer than he was married to Jennifer Aniston. The fake tweet Kanye West sent about dating Kim Kardashian longer than she was married to Kris Humphries was only believed to be sent by him because what was said was true.

It’s not just Hollywood though. Even we regular folk are playing marriage despite not being married at all. What some of us have found out the hard way is dating doesn’t imply any serious commitment whatsoever, neither does sex and neither does sharing an address. Marriage is marriage and dating is still dating.  Just because a couple is doing all the things that married couples do, they still can’t realistically expect the commitment that being married provides. It just doesn’t work that way. Though there’s a surplus of conversation about the “main chick” versus “side chick”, both are essentially the “nothing chick” as far as having “nothing” to indicate a promise of fidelity.

Does this mean people who call each other boyfriend and girlfriend should demand to be the only one he or she is sexting? That seems to be a reasonable expectation especially if one hopes that the relationship will lead to marriage. As one writer succinctly put it “a cheating boyfriend is a cheating fiancé and a cheating fiance is a cheating spouse”. A person’s propensity for lies and deceit that often go along with cheating in a dating relationship is a fairly good indicator of his or her propensity for lies, deceit and cheating in a marriage.

Still, since I’ve gotten married, I understand where my friend’s mother is coming from. Marriage is so much more serious than deciding to exclusively date a person and should be treated as such in every single way. In a dating relationship, a person is expected to be faithful solely because he or she wants to be, whereas in a marriage, a person is expected to be faithful because they’ve made a commitment to be faithful whether they want to or not. People are out here moving in together, having indiscriminate and unprotected sex, moving across the country, creating kids — all in relationships where neither person has committed to be there past next Tuesday. When these relationships meet their inevitable demise, others are shocked as though a relationship confirmed on Facebook means anything past the next second.

I think we would do better to put the emphasis on fidelity where emphasis is warranted: marriage. And, in turn, treat dating relationships like the fickle, irresolute relationships they are because dating and marriage are not nearly the same.

What do you think? Do you think it’s still cheating even if you’re not married? Do you think people equate dating with marriage?
