Celebrities…They’re just like us! Well, in most cases they’re not (unless you’re Taylor Swift and reading this, in which case, love your work)! But when it comes to Halloween, they also like to get in on the action.
You know how sometimes you just CANNOT get a song out of your head no matter how hard you try. They call it an “earworm,” but frankly, that just sounds gross. What it is, though, is rather annoying, and there are some songs when all it takes is someone simply saying one line for it to occur.
As the people of Reddit pointed out, “you take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and then you have,” well, these songs stuck in your head.
Considering that characters on TV are often put into romantic (and sometimes complicated and compromising) situations, and spend so much time with each other, it’s no surprise that there is the occasional hook-up.
In other words, that romance you see on TV can often be taken off-screen.
While the current status of celebrities is often in the headlines on a daily basis, you don’t always know what went on in the years before they were famous or the people they grew up with.
For these stars, they weren’t actually raised by their biological parents. Sometimes a family member adopted them, and other times it was a family that found them through the system.
From a computer genius to an iconic screen siren, here’s a list of the stars who found family in unexpected ways.
Born Norma Jeane Mortenson in 1926, Monroe’s mother was mentally unstable and financially unable to care for her, so she placed her with foster parents whom she lived with until she was 7. After a series of foster homes, she eventually married a neighbor, James Dougherty, after she turned 16 so that she wouldn’t have to return to foster care or an orphanage.
Bruce Jenner made headlines this year by publicly announcing his transition into a woman, Caitlyn Jenner, and opened the door for discussion about transgendered people of all types — not just celebrities.
And while Jenner’s is certainly the most public transition to date, there are others in the industry who have been blazing their own trails of transition.
As mentioned, this former Olympian and reality star made the official announcement of transitioning from Bruce to Caitlyn in 2015.
We all grew up with those stars that we thought had a little extra twinkle in their eyes. And maybe — hypothetically speaking, of course — we had posters of them on our walls and unrealistic expectations that we could also run with Slater and Zack through the halls of Bayside High.
Well, you obviously grew up, and so did they. Here’s a look at how those childhood crushes are wandering through the halls of adulthood today.
There is no shortage of inspirational advice out there (especially on the Internet) and we’re often bombarded with so much noise that it’s hard to absorb every drop of knowledge. But there are times that someone said something that forever changed your way of thinking and forced you to shift your perspective. Those gems that you soaked up like a sponge can help shape who you are.
People in this Reddit thread shared those things that changed their thoughts and even changed their lives.
There are many talented makeup artists out there who create absolutely stunning transformations every day. But Italian-based makeup artist and portrait painter Lucia Pittalis takes things to an astronomically high level.
She uses her knowledge from studying the classics and art in school — along with incredible talent and technique — to defy age and gender and alter her appearance into iconic film and music icons like Bette Davis, Rocky, and Keith Richards.
It’s more than just putting on a look for Pittalis.
She also captures their essence by studying the characters — watching photos, movies, videos, and saving frames where necessary.
“I think how it can be adapted on my face,” she said. “It is a kind of acting process before. I must be that character. Then I put on background music related to that character to be in the mood and I start to watch myself in the mirror.”
And what she sees looking back at her is nothing short of stunning.
