We live in a celebrity culture. There's no doubt about it.

Andy Warhol predicted it with his 1968 quote that "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes."

Since then the collector market for celebrity autographs has grown accordingly as demand far outstrips supply.

Collecting autographs is a market that has been predominately based in the US, Canada and the UK but that's now changing.

The rare autograph market is now serious business in emerging economies as levels of disposable income rise, and the search for trophy-assets begins.

After all, what's better than investing in a piece of memorabilia you can feel passionate about?
The World's 10 Most Valuable Autographs, all people, people, celebrities, collectibles,

Pele at £750 ($1,125)
Pele is the global ambassador for football. In his native Brazil he is a national hero.

To football fans around the world he is widely regarded as the greatest player of all time.

Over 2.2 billion people are expected to watch the World Cup finals in South Africa. Of those, 715 million will be tuning in for the final making it the biggest televised sporting event in the world.

(*Please note the prices listed are for signed photographs.)
Bob Dylan at £850 ($1,275)
Bob Dylan has achieved what many musicians fail to do.

He's stood the test of time managing to stay relevant for 5 decades in the music business.

At 68 years of age he was the oldest ever to debut at No. 1 in the Billboard charts with his album Together Through Life. Leading a reclusive lifestyle has added to his mystique, and boosted the price of his collectibles.

Dylan memorabilia is so rare that a harmonica given to a member of his wardrobe department during his 1974 tour sold for £2,700 ($4,050) in 2009.

(Please note the prices listed are for signed photographs.)
Madonna at £800 ($1,200)
The Queen of Pop is another musician performing to sell out crowds around the world. Madonna is listed by the Guinness Book of Records as the most successful female recording artist of all time.

In 2008 she signed an unprecedented $120m contract with promoters Live Nation.

(Please note the prices listed are for signed photographs.)
Tiger Woods at £1,750 ($2,625)
The world's number one golfer rarely signs autographs for members of the public.

Tiger is the world's first billionaire sportsman and even his recent indiscretions have not dented his popularity with the golfing public.

(Please note the prices listed are for signed photographs.)
Paul McCartney at £1,600 ($2,400)
The Beatles' Paul McCartney is another musician with a huge fan base. His song Yesterday is the most covered song in history.

Over 2,200 musicians have recorded their own version of Yesterday and the song has been played over 7,000,000 times on American TV and radio.

McCartney is also the most successful singer-songwriter in UK history.

(Please note the prices listed are for signed photographs.)
Neil Armstrong at £5,000 ($7,500)

One of the best investments you could have made in the last ten years with prices up over 1,000%.

Apollo 11 legend Neil Armstrong stopped signing autographs after discovering his barber was selling off-cuts of his hair for $3,000. He now shuns the limelight leading a reclusive lifestyle in a small town in Ohio, USA. The 40th Apollo 11 moon landing anniversary again showed the popularity of all autographs and memorabilia relating to this historic occasion.

Armstrong again refused to sign autographs, even turning down Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the House of Representatives and second in the United States Presidential line of succession. An Apollo 11 navigation chart sold for $218k at an auction at the time of the 40th Anniversary.

At the same auction an example of Neil Armstrong's signature, on a bank cheque, sold for $27,350 - over 50 times the original for sale estimate.

Muhammad Ali at £950 ($1,425)
The King of the Ring needs no introduction. A three time world champion he is considered one of the greatest heavyweights of all time.

His earlier signings as Cassius Clay are even more sought after with a scarce letter written on August 1, 1960 "I am here at Fort Dix getting ready for Rome, I am in the best of shape... still hitting hard." selling for $17,925.

(Please note the prices listed are for signed photographs.)
Queen Elizabeth II at £1,500 ($2,250)
The reigning Queen of England is, not surprisingly, a very difficult signature to acquire.

Family Christmas cards and 100th birthday best wishes are virtually all she signs. These tend to be kept long-term in the private collections of the recipients.

(Please note the prices listed are for signed photographs.)
JK Rowling at £1,250 ($1,875)
JK is the most recent addition to the list. With over 400 million book sales of the Harry Potter series her signature is one of the most sought after in the world. She lives a fairly reclusive lifestyle in a Scottish castle.

In 2009 a second-hand chair set an auction room alight.

The auctioneer commented "It's a chair you would normally pay a tenner for in a junk shop" but it sold for £20,000 ($30,000). A good investment for the owner.

The reason? It was the chair she sat in to write the first Harry Potter book in front of her typewriter.

<![CDATA[The Top 10 Hottest Women Named Summer]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/top-10-hottest-women-named-summer/greg
Summer is officially here. It's the time when everything gets hotter, including the women. Here's a list of the 10 hottest girls named Summer, just to start this hemisphere off on a festive note. But, on a negative note don't expect to get with one of these girls, unless of course you're one of the richest people in America...Honestly though, what else do hot girls care about anymore?

Who are the hottest girls named Summer? This list will give you that answer along with a slew of other possibilities who are extremely sexy as well. You can vote up or down your favorite or least favorite person named Summer. 
The Top 10 Hottest Women Named Summer,

Summer Altice

Chosen as Playboy's Playmate of the month in August of 2000, Summer Altice tops the list as the hottest Summer in show business, and one of the hottest women in Playboy magazine. She's an actress and a model who was named after Miss USA 1975.

You may know her from such gems as:

- You, Me and Dupree
- The Scorpion King
- Wedding Crashes (actually good)

and, for everyone who grew up on Skinemax movies like every good American, SHE DID AN EMANUELLE MOVIE.

Emanuelle 2000: Emanuelle Pie

You're welcome.
Summer Bishil
Spirit Award nominated actress Summer Bishil got her big break on the critically acclaimed and topical movie Towelhead (2007).

She now spends most of her time doing TV and being insanely hot.
Summer Glau
In this corner, a very close second and total geek favorite, Summer Glau.

This acrobatic, talented and beautiful (legitimate) actress has starred in such films as Serenity and has starred in such television shows as Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Firefly and Dollhouse...

In case you haven't seen any of these shows, catching up on them should make for a pretty HOT SUMMER.

You're welcome, humanity.
Summer Sanders
If you watch basketball at all, you've seen her at least a few times in your life.

She is a sports commentator and reporter, TV show host, actress and retired Olympic gold medalist (swimming).

Alright, so these are probably the best pictures of her on the internet. She's got a lot of "bad sides", but when given a chance can be extremely hot. I mean, she got an Olympic gold medal for SWIMMING.

She's also played herself in movies like Jerry McGuire and Broken Record.
Summer Spiro
Okay, Summer Shapiro's just BARELY famous and it's for dating Shaun White, the extremely ginger and weird-looking snowboarder/skateboarder.

As you'll see if you click on the picture for the full gallery, a lot of their pictures look like hotchickswithdouchebags.com fodder, but keep in mind: this guy is better than you. Why?

2 Olympic Gold Medals. Not sure if your fantasy football or XBox Live scores can compete with that quite yet. I know mine sure as hell can't.
Summer Strallen
Summer Strallen is an English actress who's starred as Meg Giry in the West End production of Love Never Dies after portraying the role of Maria Von Trapp in Andrew Lloyd Webber's revival of The Sound of Music at the London Palladium.

With pipes like a Mario game and a body like a Japanese game, Summer Strallen rounds out the first page of this Summer list quite nicely.

Click "Next" for the last 5.
Summer Watson
A British Operatic Soprano, this blonde bombshell is one of the most talented people on this list. Belting out tunes for Dreamworks, as well as peaking at No. 1 on iTunes internationally with her debut album, "Summer", she really raises the bar for Summers everywhere.

Fun fact: she went to grad school.
Summer Williams
Summer Williams was a Houston Texans' cheerleader from 2005-07, meaning that she is inevitably going to be a part of this list.

Currently, just to solidify her hotness, she's turned to more "brainy" work as she works for NASA in Houston. Hopefully, there'll be a NASA special edition Playboy where we can see Summer (in which I guarantee she'd be one of the hottest playboy centerfolds ever).
Summer Walker
A video girl in popular music videos like David Banner's "Play", Kanye West's "Golddigger" and T.I.'s "Imma King", Summer Walker's made a name for herself as a professional model and up-and-coming pin-up girl, ringing in a spread on XXL Magazine.
Summer Alexis
Getting her own Maxim spread, being from San Francisco and being only 5'5 are only some of her assets.

Being a pro-model and actress, this 32/25/34 hottie is someone to keep your eyes peeled for.

<![CDATA[26 Famous INTPs]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/famous-intps/celebrity-lists
Not surprisingly, many actors, scientists and politicians are believed to be INTPs (Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Perceiving). INTPS are known to be intelligent, logical, and ambitious. At times, they can be considered unemotional, but they are also known to have feelings of self-doubt that eventually pass with careful analysis.

Who is the most famous INTP? 30 Rock funny woman Tina Fey tops our list. Tina Fey is smart, ambitious, and logical--all traits typically associated with INTPs. Sigourney Weaver is another highly intelligent and ambitious actress who is considered to be an INTP. She has often stated that she is introverted and shy, despite being in the limelight for blockbuster films like Alien and Avatar. Additionally, actress and singer Charlotte Gainsbourg is a classic INTP. She has referred to herself as, "her own worst critic," as she is sometimes self-doubting in nature. 

Several famous men are also considered INTPs. Albert Einstein is thought to be an INTP. He said, "You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else." Logical, intelligent, and unemotional are words that can describe actor, writer, and lawyer, Ben Stein, a classic INTP.

Charles Darwin patiently documented various species to prove his theory of evolution, something that lends him to the INTP personality.

<![CDATA[Famous People Born the Exact Same Day]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/people-born-the-same-day/celebrity-lists
Here is a list of famous people who were born the same day - not just with the same birthday, but on the EXACT same day in the same year. Maybe even at the same hospital? To the same mother? No, there are no twins on this list. It's only celebs with the exact same birthdate, like Paris Hilton and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, or like Nancy Grace and Weird Al.

What does it mean for two people to be born on the same day? In elementary school, it means two sets of cupcakes for the whole class! In college, if you have a lot of mutual friends, maybe it means a joint b-day bash? For the rich and famous and successful, it probably means a really fun conversation at Elton John's Oscar party while others stand around feeling like outsiders. A shared birthday equals an immediate kinship and a lifelong guarantee that at least one Facebook friend will remember your special day.

You know what is fun to think about re: people who have the exact same birthday? The different trajectories their careers have taken. For example, child star Henry Thomas, aka Elliott from E.T. - well, what is he up to these days? Who knows, but he is certainly not the breakout star of Modern Family, like his identical birthday buddy Eric Stonestreet! And Ralph "Daniel-san" Macchio has popped up in stuff recently, but his modern day career pales in comparison to his birthday twin, Survivor host Jeff Probst. Also, Malcolm X and Pol Pot were pretty different, goal-wise. And what about people who died young? What if Marilyn Monroe ever looked as old as freaking Andy Griffith???

Is it fun to think about birthdays? Did you even know that "Lincoln's Birthday" on your calendar could just as easily have said "Darwin's Birthday?" And even that it would say the same year? Something to chew on!
Famous People Born the Exact Same Day,

Marilyn Monroe & Andy Griffith - June 1, 1926

Abraham Lincoln & Charles Darwin - February 12, 1809

Christa McAuliffe & Terry Bradshaw - September 2, 1948

Henry Thomas & Eric Stonestreet - September 9, 1971

Michael Jordan & Larry the Cable Guy - February 17, 1963

Angelina Jolie & Russell Brand - June 4, 1975

Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Paris Hilton - February 17, 1981

Paul McCartney & Roger Ebert - June 18, 1942

Weird Al Yankovic & Nancy Grace - October 23, 1959

Aziz Ansari & Emily Blunt - February 23, 1983

<![CDATA[Celebrities Who Are Godparents for Their Famous Friends]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/celebrity-godparents/matthewcoleweiss
Recently, Taylor Swift was given the title of godmother to the new son of her pal, actress Jaime King. But what exactly is a godparent in the first place and what the heck makes Taylor Swift qualified to be one? Are there more celebrity godparents to children of other famous people?

The dictionary defines the godparent as "a person who presents a child at baptism and responds on the child's behalf, promising to take responsibility for the child's religious education." Though the term has lost its religious connotations over the years, it still refers to the person who is not only a supportive friend, but also a mentor figure for the child, especially if something ever were to happen to the parents.   

In Hollywood however, a godparent often has a different definition. The Hollywood godmother or godfather is often a celebrity who lends some credibility to another famous person's potentially famous offspring. Sure, they can mentors, but famous godparents can also give a celebrity child's upbringing even more star power.

This is a list of some of the big stars who have agreed to be godparents for their famous friends and it's guaranteed to surprise you.

Celebrities Who Are Godparents for Their Famous Friends,

Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore paid the Spielberg godparent title forward by becoming a godmother herself to Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Their friendship dates way back to when they were both party girls. They've both become parents since, though, putting their days of revelry behind them.

Elton John
Marlon Brando isn't the true Godfather, Elton John is. John is the godfather to a bevy of kids including two of the Beckham children, Brooklyn and Romeo, Elizabeth Hurley's son Damien, and John Lennon's son Sean. To top it off, he's got about 10 other kids he's a godfather to. But according to Romeo Beckham, John is the "coolest godfather ever".

Jake Gyllenhaal
Having two famous godparents himself, Jake Gyllenhaal was happy to become a godparent in turn when his Brokeback Mountain co-stars Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams asked him to be the godfather of their daughter, Matilda, whose godmother is Michelle's former Dawson's Creek co-star Busy Phillips. Gyllenhaal has a strong relationship with his goddaughter, especially after the loss of Heath Ledger in 2008.

Jamie Lee Curtis
Jake Gyllenhaal's parents are both in show business which explains why he has two of the oddest godparents around: Jamie Lee Curtis and the late Paul Newman.  Mom Naomi Foner is a dear friend of Jamie's which garnered her the godmother title. As for Newman, apparently Jake received his first driving lesson ever from him... and Newman was a professional race car driver!   

Source: LA Times
Jennifer Aniston
In 2005, Jennifer Aniston joined her Friends co-star and real life best pal Courteney Cox at the baptism of Cox and husband David Arquette's daughter Coco, where Aniston was named godmother to the girl. Coco and Jennifer have actually developed a strong relationship over the years.

Johnny Depp
Having Jack Sparrow as your godfather must be pretty cool. When longtime friend and director Tim Burton asked Depp to be his son Billy's godfather (actually it was Burton's parter Helena Bonham Carter who asked), Depp was happy to accept the the role.  "I was honored. It doesn't get heavier than saying I'd like you to be the godfather of my son," Depp said.   

Source: Esquire

Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie were good pals, co-writing "We Are the World" together back in 1985. Ritchie named Jackson his daughter Nicole's godfather alongside Quincy Jones. Jackson was also the godfather to Barry Gibb's son Michael.  When Jackson had children, he named both Elizabeth Taylor and Diana Ross as godmothers to the kids.

Source: Popcrush
Steven Spielberg
Steven Spielberg is the godfather to not one but two of Hollywood's biggest actresses. A good friend to Bruce Paltrow and Blythe Danner, Spielberg was happy to become godfather to their daughter Gwyneth Paltrow when asked. He also took the duty on with his E.T. star Drew Barrymore (whose godmother is Sofia Loren). When she posed for Playboy, he reportedly sent her a quilt along with a note advising, "Cover yourself up".

Source: Popsugar
Taylor Swift
Sin City actress Jaime King gets to be part of Taylor Swift's cool posse, so to return the favor, she named the singer godmother of her newborn baby boy. King has a history of picking celebrities as godparents; both Jessica Alba and Topher Grace are godparents to her first son, James Knight. King explained that she chose Swift "because she's incredibly thoughtful."

Sources: LA Times, Elle

Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga was named godmother of Elton John and David Furnish's new son Elijah back in 2013 after she had already been given the role with their other son Zachary.  "She's a great role model, she's young, [and] she's been a great godmother to Zachary," John said.  "We're all bonkers in this business, but we're human beings at the same time."

<![CDATA[The 47 Douchiest Things Justin Bieber Has Ever Done]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/douchiest-things-justin-bieber-has-ever-done/ariel-kana
List of the douchiest things Justin Bieber has ever done. From abandoning his own pet monkey in Germany to showing up with a 20-person entourage to guest-host SNL, the Biebs has done quite a few questionable things in recent history. There comes a time in most young famous peoples' lives when their "acting out" incidents become more and more frequent, and the public reaction starts to move away from, "Aw, he probably didn't know any better," to "Ah! What a douchebag!" This list rounds up funny Justin Bieber quotes, stories of him acting dumb, and lays out the evidence for why Justin Bieber is a douche– deciding what you think is up to you. 

Is Justin Bieber a douchebag? Obvs, this depends on who you ask. Devoted fans –Bielebers and those who have Bieber-fever would (or course) say that he is not and that there are many good things about Justin Bieber. But what about the general public? Is spitting in your neighbor's face, threatening paparazzi, and refusing to pay for services that you used enough reason to call someone a douche? Is he actually one of the biggest douchebags in Hollywood? Or is he just acting how any other young person would in these circumstances? Does the Biebs deserve a little slack since he is from Canada and new to all of this fame? 

You can use this list of douch-ey JB moments to make your own decision and judge for yourself. Vote on your favorite d-bag move by the ever-popular teenage heartthrob/popstar, and share with your friends to see what they think.

The 47 Douchiest Things Justin Bieber Has Ever Done,

Starts a Show 2 Hours Late, Says He Was Only 40 Minutes Late
Concertgoers said the teenage star appeared onstage at the 02 Arena in London at 10:30 PM, when the start time had been listed as 8:30. Many in the audience, who had been waiting for hours, faced the choice between leaving early or missing the last trains home. Bieber did apologize – but added that he was actually only 40 minutes late, and it was because of technical difficulties.
After Being Told to Drive More Carefully, He Spit in His Neighbor's Face, Threatened to Kill
Bieber allegedly hocked a loogie and spit it in his 47-year-old neighbor's face after the father of three screamed at him to drive more carefully. Word has it that Bieber had a new Ferrari delivered to his Calabasas home at 8 AM and decided to take it for a test drive inside his gated community. Many neighbors complained that he was driving around 100 mph inside their little community. 

When one neighbor confronted him and said, "You can't drive like this!" Bieber responded by saying, "Get the f**k out of here," and then he spit in the guy's face and said, "I'm gonna f**king kill you."

Throws a Fit Because He Had to Watch Drake with the Regular People
According to TMZ, Bieber was put into a choke hold at So Cal's 2015 Coachella music festival after an altercation with security. Apparently the Biebs and his entourage were not allowed entrance into the artist area during Drake's performance because it was already at capacity. Instead of watching the set with the rest of the civilians in the crowd, Bieber said he needed special access to the restricted area so that he wouldn't be overwhelmed by fans. The security guards were not amused.

When a staffer finally came over to escort Bieber into the artist area, a security guard, doing his job like a true American hero, came up from behind and put Bieber in a choke hold. After that, Bieber and his personal security team left voluntarily but said they were considering legal action.

Believe it or not, the Biebs actually did something nice! Click here to see.

TMZ, Billboard
Banned for Life from a Vegas Indoor Skydiving Gym
Late June 2013, the Biebs and his entourage acted so poorly in a Las Vegas indoor skydiving facility that they were placed on the no-fly list for life. A source told E! News that Bieber and his crew arrived a couple minutes before closing, trashed the bathrooms, and agreed to handle payment after flying.

After they flew, he was given the option to either 1) pay or 2) Instagram a photo of himself with the owner and a favorable caption. Bieber went with option 2 – except rather than actually doing that, he "faked like he was posting something, per the agreement, but never did." Bieber and his friends then left without paying or tipping the staff who helped them fly.
"Anne (Frank) Was a Great Girl. Hopefully She Would Have Been a Belieber."

Before playing a show in the Netherlands in early 2013, the Biebs really had a moment at the Anne Frank House. After his hourlong visit with guards and friends, he thoughtfully wrote in their guestbook: “Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.”

And maybe she would have! If she, you know, hadn’t died from typhus in a concentration camp in 1945.
He Abandoned His Pet Monkey in Germany
In March 2013, Justin Bieber flew to Munich to put on a few performances as part of his world tour. On his return trip, his entourage grew just a little bit bigger – to include one new (adorable) baby capuchin monkey. Unfortunately, with all of the excitement around his new pet, Biebs neglected to bring one very, very important document with him to the airport: the necessary clearance forms that would allow him to bring the monkey in and out of Germany.

Because he just showed up with a monkey and no paperwork, German officials seized little OG Mally (which is the monkey's name), and placed him under quarantine. A local animal shelter announced it would give Justin Bieber (who was still in Germany) four weeks to return to Munich with the necessary paperwork to claim his little fella, or else the monkey will be given to a European zoo. Bieber had his people email the shelter to let them know he would not be coming back for him. 

Before he decided to not rescue his pet monkey from Germany, Bieber posted a photo of OG Mally on his Instagram with the caption, “He’s like a human.” (You know, the kind of human you abandon in a foreign country)


When He Made Prince's Death About Himself
While the world mourned the loss of Prince in April 2016, Bieber was predictably thinking about one thing: himself. The Biebs wanted to make sure fans knew the "Purple Rain" singer wasn't the only star in the world. Singer/songwriter Andrew Watt posted a Prince tribute on Instagram that said, "Today waking up to this news I am truly beside myself...devastated...the last of the greatest living performers...my guitar idol." 

Bieber's response? He commented on the pic: "Well not the last greatest living performer." Wonder who could he have been referring to?

Spits Off Balcony On To Fans Below
The tween-idol was photographed hawking spit over the side of a hotel balcony –directly above the faces of hundreds of loyal fans who were gathered below in hopes of catching a glimpse of him. In the same series of extremely bad PR shots, he was then photographed cracking up with his friends and pointing down at the poor teenage girls gathered below that he had just spat on. 

Just moments before the spit-show, Bieber posted a photo of the same fans on Instagram with the caption, "I wake up this morning to this :) best fans in the world #beliebers #sexyfans."

Spitting at a group of teenagers that call themselves "Beliebers" seems cruel enough, but it just seems extra unfair to first give them a shoutout on Instagram and then spit in their faces. They never had a chance to see it coming. 

When He Punched a Fan in the Face

On the way to perform at a show in Brazil, Justin Bieber's car was flooded with fans. However, one fan got a little too close for comfort when he stuck his hand through the Biebz' window to touch the pop star. Bieber, always one to respond in the positively most aggressive way possible, took a jab at the fan. A witness caught video footage of the moment Bieber threw the punch at his (probably) ex-fan, who is visibly shocked by the whole incident. As for the rest of the world, the episode is nothing new when it comes to a day in the life of the Biebz.

Cuts Disneyland Lines in Bogus Wheelchair
For shame! The sneaky stunt that every adolescent youth joked about trying was actually pulled off by the Canadian crooner himself. Word has it that the Biebs was pushed around Disneyland in a wheelchair over the weekend of July 20, 2014, causing wild speculation that the supremely douchey singer is also an unfair line-jumper!

"Wait!" You may be saying. "I/my friend/the cool kid at school did that once and it was awesome." To that, we'd say: you are not a super-famous pop-star who publicly posts photos of their non-injured self on Instagram every hour. 

Even more interesting, TMZ reports that Justin wouldn't even need a wheelchair to cut lines, because Disney already escorts him in and out of rides to avoid huge crowds when he's in the park. So there's that.
TMZ has the full story.

<![CDATA[20 Celebrities Who Played Soccer in High School]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/celebrities-who-played-soccer-in-high-school/celebrity-lists
Celebrities who played soccer in high school all once shared a passion for what Americans call soccer and what others call football. Though all have gone on to bigger and better things, many still hold their love for the sport tight and are happy to kick the ball around for charity games or just plain fun.

As soccer or football is much more popular across the pond, it's not surprising that many British and European celebrities have made this list. Jason Statham, Colin Farrell, Rod Stewart, Vinnie Jones, and chef Gordon Ramsay all fall into that category. Jones even saw success playing football professionally prior to leaving the game for acting and going on to appear in several movies.

But playing soccer in high school isn't limited to foreign-born celebrities as there are many famous people who grew up playing the game in the states. Tom Cruise, Jon Stewart, Channing Tatum, and Jessica Biel are just a few who gave up their passion for soccer at one point in time to pursue their now-successful Hollywood careers. Some, like Stewart, also played in college.

Didn't know these celebrities played soccer in high school? Well then you might not know about the other soccer celebrities who are former athletes as well. Check out which celebrities played high school football and which celebrities played basketball in high school for more.

<![CDATA[26 Celebrities Who Are Rape Survivors]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/famous-rape-victims/celebrity-lists

There are 237,868 victims of sexual assault or rape in the United States every year. Several celebrities have had the misfortune of being included in this statistic. Many of them have decided to speak about their experiences to help other victims of rape move on with their lives. For more information or to get help, contact the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network at 800-656-HOPE.

Among celebrities raped before they were famous, media mogul Oprah Winfrey is listed here. The talk show host was raped by a relative when she was just 9 years old. Winfrey has been an outspoken advocate for survivors of abuse and frequently used her show as a platform for fellow survivors to tell their stories. Other famous women who have been the victims of rape include Fiona Apple, Fran Drescher, Jane Fonda, Kelly McGillis, Tori Amos, and Gabrielle Union. 

Actress Teri Hatcher revealed she was sexually molested from the age of five after her uncle was later convicted for multiple cases of statutory rapes and child molestation. He served six years of his prison sentence before dying of colon cancer in 2008. 

Some famous men have also been victims of rape. Singer Rufus Wainwright was raped and robbed in Hyde Park in 1987 when he was just 14 years old. Wainwright has said that he survived the attack by faking a seizure. Other famous male rape victims include Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious, who was raped when he was in prison, as was the notorious robber Clyde Barrow.

Do you think that it was brave of these famous people to share their stories? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

26 Celebrities Who Are Rape Survivors,

Ashley Judd
"Bug" actress Ashley Judd discusses being raped in her memoir "All That Is Bitter and Sweet."


Fiona Apple
In 1989, Fiona Apple was raped outside of her family's apartment.  She was only 12 years old at the time.


Gabrielle Union
In 1992, "Bad Boyz II" actress Gabrielle Union was raped while she was working at a shoe store.  She was 19 years old at the time.


Jane Fonda

During a March 2017 interview, Jane Fonda revealed she was raped and sexually abused as a child. 

“I’ve been raped, I’ve been sexually abused as a child and I’ve been fired because I wouldn’t sleep with my boss,” she said. “I always thought it was my fault; that I didn’t do or say the right thing.”

Oprah Winfrey
Talk show host Oprah Winfrey was raped by a relative when she was just 9 years old.


Rita Hayworth
Rita Hayworth was repeatedly raped by her father, who tutored and trained her as a dancer traveling the country when she was young. It wasn't until adulthood that she realized that the incestuous relationship was not common between father and daughter.


Shia LaBeouf
In November 2014, troubled actor Shia LaBeouf publicly claimed that he had been raped by a woman during his #IAMSORRY performance art project in February. As part of the project, LaBeouf sat in a room with a bag over his head while visitors interacted with him. Some held his hand, some said disparaging things, and apparently, one person sexually assaulted him.

LaBeouf told Dazed Digital's Aimee Cliff, "one woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me…"

Reaction to the revelation were mixed. Some, like journalist Piers Morgan, refused to believe the actor, while others rushed to support his story. LaBeouf, who struggled with alcohol addition and a "nervous breakdown" earlier in the year, did not press charges.


Teri Hatcher
Teri Hatcher was raped by her uncle when she was just five. In 2002, she testified against the man, and he was sentenced to 14 years in prison.


Tyler Perry
Actor and director Tyler Perry was raped by the mother of a childhood friend, who held him hostage in her house until he had sex with her.


Lady Gaga
In December 2014, Lady Gaga revealed to radio host Howard Stern that she had been raped by a record producer twenty years her senior when she was 19 years old. The pop star's single, Swine, is about the incident.

She said, “The song is about rape. The song is about demoralization. The song is about rage and fury and passion and I had a lot of pain that I wanted to release and I said to myself, ‘I want to sing this song while I’m ripping hard on a drum kit and then I want to get on a mechanical bull, which is probably one of the most demoralizing things that you can put a female on in her underwear, and I want this chick to throw up on me in front of the world so that I can tell them ‘You know what, you can never ever degrade me as much as I could degrade myself and look how beautiful it is when I do.’”

<![CDATA[Hottest Young Angelina Jolie Photos]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/hottest-young-angelina-jolie-photos/cari-fortier

Angelina Jolie near-nude photos, collecting pictures together of one of entertainment's hottest women. The best pics in this Angelina Jolie photo gallery are ranked according to their hotness. So, in honor of one of the greatest up and coming ladies in Hollywood, here are the sexiest Angelina Jolie pictures ranked by hotness.

Angelina Jolie is one of the most attractive actresses to ever appear on the silver screen. But was she always this good looking? Yes. Angelina overcame what was all our awkward stage in life. Before she appeared in hit films like Gia, The Bone Collector, Girl, Interrupted, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Taking Lives, Alexander, Salt, Maleficent, and Wanted she was pursuing an acting career, appearing in music videos and student films, but otherwise saying her look was "too dark" for feature films at the time. There was a moment during this time that Angelina worked as a fashion model that prove her good looks didn't just come out of no where.

Those luscious lips, those big blue eyes, and her beautiful brunette hair promised her a successful career in the entertainment business. Her natural beauty is all thanks to her parents Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. Looking back, she had no clue she would one day be a big movie star and married to one of the most hansom hunks in Hollywood, Brad Pitt. 

These hot Angelina Jolie pics were taken from a variety of different sources, including several promotional and magazine photoshoots, and have been turned into a curated image gallery containing only the cutest pictures from around the Web. While there are many sexy Angelina Jolie photos, these are the hottest around.

<![CDATA[Actors Who Almost Got the Part in a DC Film]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/actors-who-were-almost-in-dc-films/ranker-comics
Casting is truly an art form. Each and every cast member from starring, to supporting, to day-player, affects the entire tone of the film. What would Bruce Wayne be without Christian Bale, who was up against a number of actors on this list for the role? Casting is everything, and the actors on this list couldn't make the cut for the role of any number of DC heroes and villains.

These are all of the shadows of that ideal, the people who were ALMOST legends, who almost had action figures and multi-picture deals and10-year contracts. These are the people who, for one reason or another, didn't end up playing these great characters of the comic book world. 

Which actors almost became DC's film heroes and villains? Their films went on to be made, not ending up on the list of comic book movies we never saw, but the actors and actresses listed here weren't part of the fun. Which of these stars do you wish you had seen in DC hero and villain roles? Cast your votes below!

Actors Who Almost Got the Part in a DC Film,

Adrianne Palicki
Cast as: Wonder Woman

A Wonder Woman TV show actually happened, not long ago, in the same vein as "Smallville," "Arrow," and "Flash." However, budget issues, costume issues, and fan reactions kept it from ever airing even a single episode.
Billy Dee Williams
Considered for: Two-Face

Remember Lando Calrissian? Remember how he already played Harvey Dent in the first Batman? Well, he was set to reprise the role and eventually turn into Two-Face in the sequel. But, as happened to the role of Robin, the sequel was packed with new characters, and the part was written out and then recast (Tommy Lee Jones) for the über campy sequel.
David Bowie
Considered for: The Joker

We would probably still pay to see this, 25 years later. David Bowie as the Clown Prince of Crime! A little bit Ziggy Stardust, a dash of Labyrinth, and a whole lot of crazy, as directed by Tim Burton? Yes, please.
Henry Cavill
Considered for: Batman

What's that you say? But he's Superman? At one point, he was called the unluckiest man in Hollywood, as he was up for (and usually in the top three for) Batman, Bond, Edward Cullen, and many another huge roles in tentpole film roles before finally booking Superman... the second time he went out for it (he was in the running for the role Brandon Routh landed).

Hugh Dancy
Considered for: Batman

Probably the most posh Bruce Wayne on the list, Hugh Dancy was this close to nabbing the role when Christopher Nolan was first gearing up for his trilogy. 

Megan Gale
Cast as: Wonder Woman

Gale was part of the cast of the failed George Miller (Mad Max)-directed Justice League movie. The movie was fully cast, sets were being constructed, and pre-production was winding down with production of the film about to start, when two things happened: 

1) The movie costs ballooned to an enormous $300 million, and 
2) it failed to procure its tax breaks.

Ralph Fiennes
Considered for: Lex Luthor

Before he was ever Voldemort, J.J. Abrams and the studio reportedly wanted Ralph Fiennes to play Lex Luthor in Superman Flyby. It would have been perfect!
Robin Williams
Considered for: The Riddler

Pursued by the studio (apparently) for the original Tim Burton films, Robin Williams himself then pursued it for the Chris Nolan iterations (Williams and Nolan worked together on Insomnia). Williams even said he'd be an extra in a Nolan Batman film. His Riddler could have been game-changing – sadly, it never came to pass.
Sam Rockwell
Considered for: The Joker

After he was almost Iron Man, and before he was Justin Hammer, the insanely talented and vastly under-used Sam Rockwell was in contention for Christopher Nolan's Joker. The role eventually went to Heath Ledger and made cinema history, but we would love to see Rockwell's take on a lean, sleek, probably dancing, Clown Prince of Crime.
Sandra Bullock
Considered for: Wonder Woman

At one point in the mid-90s, we were ever so close to actually having a Wonder Woman movie come to light. After a long casting process that included big names like Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock was rumored to be the Amazonian princess, with Ivan Reitman directing. Then talks fell apart. Bullock reportedly didn't want to wear the costume, and the whole movie disappeared.

<![CDATA[Actors Who Were Drunk While They Were Filming Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/actors-who-were-drunk-while-they-were-filming-movies/dukeharten

Actors who drank on set range from the squeakiest of the clean to veteran hell-raisers. Daniel Radcliffe didn’t drink on set - he just drank so much the night before, he was still drunk on set the next day during the later Harry Potter films. (That probably made for one Avada Kedavra of a hangover.) Richard Burton didn’t mind being blind drunk on set because he didn’t remember it. He could barely recall making 1974’s The Klansman. He’s visibly reeling on screen. 

Robert Shaw drank so much during a scene in Jaws, he blacked out. Jason Mewes began to slur while filming some of his scenes in Clerks and had to be sent home. Graham Chapman suffered DTs on the set of Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Robert Pattinson drank to battle the harsh Australian outback in The Rover, proving that Guy Pearce is truly a sick bastard for suggesting alcohol as a remedy. It also proves that the joke’s on Pearce, because Pattinson pounded a lot of vodka and looks very apocalyptic at times. 

Anna Kendrick ended up drunk in a scene of Drinking Buddies because she didn’t know she was drinking real beer until it was too late. It was cheaper than water, so it made sense for the production. Kendrick got buzzed and it’s all captured onscreen. 

Other actors who drank on set include actors who needed to take the edge off before a sex scene, such as Margot Robbie in The Wolf of Wall Street. Getting busy with Leo took three shots of tequila. Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman also took tequila shots before their make-out scene, although Kunis denies it. Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky says it happened. And what if you’re going to be in a three-way? Do as Matton Dillon, Neve Campbell, and Denise Richardson did in Wild Things. Shots! Shots! Shots!

Actors Who Were Drunk While They Were Filming Movies,

Billy Bob Thornton

Thornton went full-on method with this character, a drunken, foul-mouthed burglar posing as a mall Santa in order to rob the store after closing time.

Thornton owned his imbibing, telling Film 4, "I don't mind a smoke every now and again. I've been known to take a drink occasionally... But I've traditionally played really extreme characters and even in a comedy, if you're going to play a guy like this, you can't be sort of drunk, you know? And I wasn't sort of drunk. You have to go completely into it."

Daniel Radcliffe

He didn’t drink at work, but in the later Potter films, Radcliffe confessed that he’d still be drunk from the night before. Radcliffe told the Telegraph that he would drink just about every night, making the next’s day’s shooting difficult. “I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes. I have a very addictive personality. It was a problem.”

Radcliffe eventually became sober.

Denise Richards

Did someone say threesome? This probably happened to Matt Dillon every day in the ‘90s, but Denise Richards and Neve Campbell had to take a few shots before shooting the scene. Dillon joined in because he didn’t want the ladies to drink alone, maybe. 

We’d link to the scene but you’d probably end up with a virus from a porn site on your computer - we, um, heard that happens sometimes...

Harmony Korine

Korine shocked with his film Kids, but he blew people out of the water with Gummo, a blend of surrealism and realism into one murky bath water with milk, spaghetti, and bacon taped to the bathroom wall. 

Korine has a cameo in the film where he plays a gay man hitting on his high school friend, played by Bryant L. Crenshaw, who is a little person. 

“I’ve known that guy for a long time,” Korine says of Crenshaw in an interview with Art Threat. “We went to high school together. I knew that in order to get to that point, I had to get intoxicated. It was the last scene in the movie that we shot, and after it was done, I threw my sister through a plate glass window.”

Jennifer Lawrence

The HG leads would get bored between scenes and this led to drinking in J-Law’s trailer with her co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. 

The gang revealed to E! Online that getting legless was a go-to boredom killer. ”We were drunk," Lawrence laughed. "That was fun. That was the first time I've ever drank at work.” Hutcherson [laughs], "It was the first, but it wasn't the last!” 

You can also watch the cast do shots on the red carpet with MTV’s Josh Horowitz. Hutcherson and Lawrence do two shots. For Rue!

Martin Sheen

Sheen wasn’t always the silver-haired presidential type. During the filming of Apocalypse Now, a 36-year-old Sheen was ripped out of his mind on a mixture of alcohol and drugs. The actor is so drunk, he careens around the set, punches a mirror, bleeds all over the place, rubs the blood on his face, and then finally attacks director Francis Ford Coppola.

Coppola kept some of Sheen's outburst in the movie. Except for the part where Sheen broke the fourth wall by trying to break Coppola’s head. Now you know where Charlie got it from...

Mila Kunis

Kunis denied it, but director Darren Aronofsky and the crew said that the actors were lit from a shared bottle of tequila to pull off their sex scene. “I didn’t really think through the fact that I was going to have to have sex with her,” Portman told MTV.

Richard Burton

Burton is visibly drunk during this fight scene. In fact, he was drunk during the entire production. “I barely recall making that film,” Burton wrote in his memoir.

Anna Kendrick

Anna was drunk and so was pretty everyone else in the cast, because they were shooting in a brewery where beer was cheaper than water. Kendrick was a lightweight and got hammered pretty quickly. 

Olivia Wilde explained, “She sat down to do the first scene and took a huge gulp of beer, not realizing it was real, and was like instantly hammered. She was like, ‘What’s happening? What are you guys doing?’ And we were like, ‘Oh, we forgot to tell you - the beer’s all real and everyone’s drunk. It’s 10 am, welcome to Drinking Buddies.’”

Margot Robbie

Robbie was very nervous about her sex scene with Leonardo DiCaprio, so three or four shots of tequila beforehand made a lot of sense.

<![CDATA[Celebrities Who Have Been Publicly Mean to the Kardashians]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/celebrities-who-hate-the-kardashians/jessica-lawshe
Maybe it's because the Kardashians are everywhere, or maybe it's just because they're living the life we wish we could, but aren't we all a little sick of reality TV show clan? Regular folks who spend hours watching E! aren't the only ones who are over it. Just ask the celebs on this list of famous people who have been publicly mean to the Kardashians.

It's got to be frustrating to be an actor or musician who rose to fame and fortune through hard work and talent, only to watch the Kardashians rake it in for... nothing. They've managed to become household names for little more than being themselves and, in Kim's case, making a sex tape. What's worse, they are down-right obnoxious. At least that's what all the celebrity Kardashian haters would say. 

From Jon Hamm and Jonah Hill to Rebel Wilson and Bette Midler, there are plenty of famous people who don't like the Kardashians. It seems celebrities want to do anything but "keep up" with the tabloid family. 
Celebrities Who Have Been Publicly Mean to the Kardashians,

Barack Obama
While President Obama isn't a big fan of letting his daughters watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians, first lady Michelle Obama sees how the show could be used as a learning tool. As reported by Us Weekly, Michelle said, "Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians - when they watch that stuff - he doesn't like that as much. But I sort of feel like if we're talking about it, and I'm more concerned with how they take it in - what did you learn when you watched that? And if they're learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I'm like, okay."
Chloë Grace Moretz
Following yet another of Kim K's naked tweets, Chloë Grace Moretz replied: "@KimKardashian I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies."
Daniel Craig
During an interview with British GQ, Daniel Craig discussed what it was like to lose your privacy when you become a celebrity. During the interview he also lobbed a direct hit at the Kardashians. He said“It’s a career. What can I tell you? It is a career; I’m not being cynical. And why wouldn’t you? Look at the Kardashians, they’re worth millions. Millions! I don’t think they were that badly off to begin with, but now look at them. You see that and you think, ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f*cking idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions?’”
Joel McHale
During the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner, Joel McHale explained how he knows the Kardashians are Republicans. It's "because they’re always trying to screw black people."

Jonah Hill
At first, Jonah Hill feigned shock when Kim K called off her marriage to Kris Humphries. But he got even spicier with his shade-throwing in a follow-up interview: "The truth of it is, I have friends who work in TV and the Kardashians get higher ratings than their TV shows. Shows that people actually work hard on — writing and creating and trying to tell stories. The fact that the Kardashians could be more popular than a show like Mad Men is disgusting. (Laughs) It's a super disgusting part of our culture, but I still find it funny to make a joke about it. Whenever I say I like reality TV, people write about it like they're in shock. I can't even understand it, so I watch it. I think it's funny and I definitely enjoy it in a making-fun-of-it sort of way, but where does the line sort of end? When do I stop making fun of it and become an actual fan?"
Jon Hamm
During an interview with Elle UK, Jon Hamm took a pretty focused shot at Kim K (and Paris Hilton): "Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a fucking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly."

But he didn't stop there. NY Daily News reported that during an interview with Time Out London, Hamm took another shot when asked about his "sex symbol" status. He said, “The sexy thing is so ephemeral and meaningless other than in the world of selling magazines. Who cares, when it's reduced to just that? You might as well be a Kardashian and have a sex tape.”

Afterward, he said he didn't mean for Kim to feel hurt. Yeah, right.

As seen in this video from Adoratious, Prince kicked Kim Kardashian off stage at his 2011 concert at Madison Square Garden. According to News.com.Au, the reality TV star was in the front row when, "She was plucked to come up on stage and bust some moves with the diminutive star, but stood still, giggled and put her hands over her face. After about 10 seconds of trying to get down around her, Prince got fed up and told her: 'Get off the stage!'”
Rebel Wilson
Rebel Wilson told an Australian radio show that she nixed the idea of presenting at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards with Kendall and Kylie Jenner. She said, "What they stand for is totally against what I stand for. They seem a bit superficial and their careers aren’t really based on talent.”
Reese Witherspoon
As seen in this video from TMZ, Reese Witherspoon took an opportunity to strike out at the reality TV stars during her acceptance speech at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, saying, "It's also possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show."
Amber Rose
There is a much talked-about feud between Amber Rose and the Kardashians. As Kanye's ex explains in this ET video, she doesn't hate Khloe. So that's something? She goes on to say that "the only reason why these girls have careers is because their older sister had a little fun on tape, let's be realistic."

<![CDATA[19 World Leaders Who Have Tattoos]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/world-leaders-who-have-tattoos/jordan-love
Tattoos are much more accepted nowadays than they used to be. In the past, tattoos had a certain negative connotation associated with them. While that's not entirely gone now, it's definitely subsided considerably. With that in mind, it might be surprising to learn that there are many world leaders with tattoos, and even more past world leaders with tattoos than you would have ever expected. 

President Obama might not have any tattoos (that we know of), but a couple of former U.S. presidents certainly did. Our neighbors to the north recently elected a new Prime Minister who has tattoos, and there are several Congress men and women past and present who have tattoos. Tattoos are all over the political landscape, but many politicians choose to keep them out of sight when it comes time for pictures.

There still aren't any world leaders with face tattoos, but the Czech Republic almost became the first to be able to claim that throne when one of their front-runners for president was Vladimir Franz, a man with a full-fledged face tattoo. It's becoming more and more acceptable for politicians with tattoos to put them on public display, though many, if not most, still choose to keep them covered most of the time.

Check out this list of some of the most interesting politicians who have tattoos. You might even get some ideas for your next tattoo!

<![CDATA[Your Favorite Disney Stars: Where Are They Now?]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/disney-stars-then-and-now/coy-jandreau
When it comes to nostalgia, it's hard to beat the feels you feel when reminiscing about all those Disney Channel stars you grew up with. Whether the child stars of hit Disney Original Series like Even Stevens, or the teen heartthrobs who danced into your heart in Disney Channel Original Movies (paging Zac Efron, come in Zac Efron), the Disney stars you remember from your youth have grown up too, and some are even well-adjusted (LOL) Hollywood actors or famous musicians! Would you like to see your favorite Disney Stars all grown up?

When you look at Disney stars then and now, it's crazy to see where they're lives went and what they're up to. "Little Andrew Lawrence can't be that old and doing that, I'm only... oh wait. It's absolutely staggering to see where your favorite child stars are now. Whether these Disney stars grew up to be actors or, or pop stars, or... race car drivers. Some are parents themselves now!

So if you've been watching reruns of the Disney Channel, or caught your favorite young actor in a new movie trailer and wondered about some of the rest, you're in the right place! These are your favorite child Disney stars grown up!

Your Favorite Disney Stars: Where Are They Now?,

Demi Lovato
Lovato is now is agenuine pop sensation. You can find her acting and modeling in addition to songwriting, singing, and touring, selling out shows nationwide. She's been on a couple of shows the last few years, had roles in more than a couple of movies, and she's even set to be a Smurf in the 2017 film.

Evan Peters
You may not have noticed, but this guy is everywhere. He had a few small parts in some films in the mid 2000s (Including Never Back Down), then had a nice run on One Tree Hill before breaking out in Kick-Ass and American Horror Story. The whole world took notice when he stole the show as Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past. He'll be showing off more Quicksilver moves in a huge scene in X-Men: Apocalypse. One of his scenes reportedly took six weeks to film.

Hilary Duff
Hillary Duff is now a doting mother. She still does plenty of TV work, popping up on shows like Community, Raising Hope, Two and Half Men, and even Dora the Explorer. She also has a recurring role on the TV Land series, Younger.

Miley Cyrus
Cyrus is a full-blown pop superstar. She's making music videos, releasing hit singles, and touring. She's also hosting mega events and generally being a larger than life personality, all the while advocating for women's rights and making a number of bold fashion choices.

Shia LaBeouf
These days, LaBeouf isn't as well-known for his acting as he is known for his daily life antics. Which in some ways is a shame (he did an incredible job in 2014's Fury), but in other ways is super interesting. The whole plagiarism saga was no fun for anyone but since that, his #iamsorry exhibit, the "I Am Not Famous Anymore" bag on his head, the Broadway fights, the #ALLMYMOVIES exhibit... they've all been fascinating.

Hillary Duff - Then
Duff started out with a role in Casper Meets Wendy, but she really broke out with her role in Agents Cody Banks. She then led her own show, Disney Channel's Lizzie McGuire.

Miley Cyrus - Then
Known for being Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana on her own show Hannah Montana, and it certainly didn't hurt that she was Bill Ray Cyrus's daughter. She was a charming, innocent, friendly, young starlet.

Evan Peters - Then
A 17 year old Evan Peters hadn't done all that much when he booked a recurring role on Phil of the Future. Fortunately, he also managed to book a recurring role on the show The Days, in the same year (2004). In 2005, he starred in a whopping 21 episodes of the show Invasion, and has apparently always sported that haircut.

Demi Lovato - Then
Lovato, believe it or not, started out with a role on Barney and Friends. She then went on to Disney's As the Bell Rings. Soon thereafter she really broke out with her role in the Disney Channel Jonas Brothers movie, Camp Rock.

Shia LaBeouf - Then
LaBeouf was the adorable Louis Stevens on the wacky Disney sitcom Even Stevens and it wasn't long until he was in... well seemingly every movie, really. Starting with Holes, he was soon in everything from iRobot to Disturbia.

<![CDATA[Famous People Who Died On The Toilet]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/famous-people-who-died-on-the-toilet/carly-silver

Celebrities have a habit of dying in weird places, including toilets. What has caused so many rich and famous throughout the ages to have their final moments on the commode? From medieval monarchs to early Christian theologians, legendary architects to ground-breaking comedians, tons of tragic historical deaths came on the crapper.

While many of these people either suffered with addiction or had health problems unrelated to their bowel movements, they all died in the same place - the toilet.

Famous People Who Died On The Toilet,


Arius was one of the most important men in early Christianity, founding a doctrine that was a legitimate rival to what became Catholic doctrine. Hailing from North Africa, this 3rd century priest wrote and preached that the Holy Trinity was not an equal power, and that God the Father was the divine, not the Son.

This theology, called Arianism, was one of many ideas of the nature of Christ floating about in the 4th century. Because of this, Arius suffered. In 325 the Council of Nicaea condemned him as a heretic and was set to suffer the consequences of such a label. But he died before this came to fruition. Legend has it that Arius died either on the toilet or on his way to the toilet, perhaps of a stroke or heart attack, but this might have been a rumor designed to emphasize his lack of piety.

Don Simpson

Jerry Bruckheimer, the Hollywood producer behind moves like Black Hawk Down, had a powerful ally in his longtime business partner, the energetic and passionate Don Simpson. Together, the two helped create blockbusters like Top Gun and Beverly Hills Cop, but their bond suffered when Simpson became dangerously addicted to illegal prescription drugs. Simpson became reclusive and separated professionally from Bruckheimer, although he was planning a comeback in the 1990s.

Sadly, before he could really turn his life around, Simpson died on the toilet while reading a biography of director Oliver Stone. The official cause? A heart attack, probably brought on by the drugs.

Elvis Presley

One of the most famous singers to ever grace an American stage, Elvis Presley shot to fame in the 1940s and 1950s where he sang, danced, and acted his way into the country's hearts. Best known for songs like "Heartbreak Hotel" and "Jailhouse Rock," the hip-gyrating star made women swoon. But he became addicted to drugs, leading to him being the most famous person to kick it on the crapper. 

Elvis was going to the bathroom in his Graceland mansion on August 16, 1977, when the years of drugs he'd taken finally began to catch up with him. The King fell off the toilet and into a pile of his own vomit. Later, it was revealed an extreme cocktail of drugs caused his passing. 

Evelyn Waugh

Evelyn Waugh was a 20th century British author with quite the interesting life. He dropped out of Oxford University before graduating, became an international journalist, and married a woman also named Evelyn. Also a soldier, Waugh wrote a lot about the military, which inspired his Brideshead Revisited; he also suffered from unrequited love and tons of physical ailments.

The circumstances of Waugh's passing are a bit unclear, some speculate he not only died on the toilet, but had actually drowned in it. According to reports, Waugh returned from mass when he headed to the toilet. When he didn't return, his family went looking for him and found him dead on the floor. One friend said he was found with water in his lungs, though that is disputed

Whether he died on it or in it, Waugh definitely collapsed on the commode in 1966 and passed soon after. It was common knowledge that Waugh was in poor health and his official cause of death was from heart failure. 

George II of Great Britain

This monarch was German by birth - his dad, George I, was a distant cousin of the last ruler, Queen Anne, and inherited the throne because he was a Protestant. George II didn't get along with his dad at all, and they fought by allying with different political factions in England (the pattern repeated itself with George II's son, Frederick Louis). It was during George's reign that the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745 took place.

George died in a manner not befitting his royal status, though. In 1760, George was straining to get things moving in his intestinal tract, when things went wrong. He fell off the toilet, and his servant ran in to help him after hearing what was described as a "noise louder than the royal wind." But it was too late - George wound up dying soon after. Doctors found that a ventricle in his heart had burst.

Godfrey IV, Duke of Lower Lorraine

This 11th century monarch was known as the "Hunchback" for his stature. Despite his nickname, Godfrey was a well-thought-of leader in his own time, dubbed "a young man indeed with an excellent mind, but with a hump." His wife was his extraordinary step-sister Matilda of Canossa, an occasional military leader who ruled a good chunk of Italy and supported papal forces against imperial factions.

In 1096, Godfrey was in Flanders when he was attacked by an assassin as he "answered the call of nature." He survived for nearly a week after the attack, but eventually died. It's believed he was killed in retaliation for a military victory.

Judy Garland

After a tragic home life, the actress who would become known as Judy Garland took the stage and screen by storm. Like Elvis, she suffered from an addiction to drugs, but that didn't put a damper on the luster of her great career, which included a starring role in The Wizard of Oz as Dorothy. Her daughter, famed entertainer Liza Minnelli, followed in her footsteps.

Personal problems, ranging from nervous breakdowns and suicide attempts to bizarre behavior on set, led to the downfall of her Hollywood career. This was attributed to the cocktail of pills Garland regularly took, including barbiturates and amphetamines. At the age of 47 in 1969, Garland died on the toilet; her fifth husband found her body. Reports say Garland died sometime between 3 am and 4 am, her body slumped over the toilet with the bathroom door locked. 

Louis Kahn

Louis Kahn was one of America's most celebrated architects, best known for combining Modernist sensibilities with inspiration from ancient monuments. Born in Estonia, he migrated to America in his childhood, but he did head back to Europe later in life, drawing on his recollections of medieval castles. Ultimately, his work was a composite of all sorts of fascinating influences; he taught at the most prestigious institutions in the country and designed some epic buildings.

Sadly, Kahn died in 1974 in a not-so-great building - New York City's Penn Station. This was where Kahn had stopped to use the bathroom, suffered a heart attack, and died.

Uesugi Kenshin

This 16th century Japanese warlord was one of the most important figures of his age. Uesugi Kenshin started his ascension to fame when he saved the life of his daimyo, or feudal master, and demanded he adopt Kenshin as gratitude. In battle, Kenshin reportedly was such an effective leader than he didn't need to speak to command his troops, and communicated solely through gestures. An extraordinarily brave man well-known for his epic rivalries with other lords, he also had a great impact on Japanese military technology, transmitting the recipe for gunpowder to his armies.

Sadly, Kenshin's epic life wasn't matched by his ignominious death. One of his rivals sent an assassin to hide in the sewer beneath his toilet. When Kenshin went to use the commode, the killer sprang up and skewered his target with a sword or spear. It's possible, though, that this story was a legend rather than the truth, but it's interesting nevertheless.

Wenceslaus III of Bohemia

The king of Bohemia in the late 13th and early 14th centuries, Wenceslaus III was a flash in the pan as a ruler. He gave up his rights to the Hungarian crown in order to pursue the throne of Poland, but died before he could raise an army to conquer that country.

Who offed him? A mysterious assassin, who barged in on Wency while he was sitting on the toilet. In 1306, the killer attacked the king with a spear and offed him while Wenceslaus was sitting on the toilet.

<![CDATA[16 Older Celebrities Who Actually Dated Teenagers]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/celebrities-who-dated-teenagers/elle-tharp

Age is just a number, or at least it is to these celebrities who dated teenagers. It's not uncommon for celebs who work together to become romantically involved - and that doesn't exclude those who aren't quite legal. There are lots of famous people who dated teenagers, sometimes out in the open and other times in private. These boyfriend and girlfriends found love sometimes in a controversial place, and sometimes it actually worked out.

From brief flings to tying the knot, some of these celebrities who dated teens ended up finding true love with people who couldn't yet buy booze. You have to stay young somehow.

16 Older Celebrities Who Actually Dated Teenagers,

Doug Hutchison

Who He Dated: Courtney Stodden, 16

Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison have made plenty of headlines for their cross-generational romance, particularly when then 16-year-old Stodden married the 51-year-old actor in Vegas after meeting him online. She needed parental permission to get married, a move her now-estranged momager says she regrets. The unlikely duo have been through many ups and downs, including a trial separation, a stint on Couples Therapy, and a miscarriage, but they are still married after five years. 

Elvis Presley

Who He Dated: Priscilla Presley, 14

Priscilla Presley, now 71, was only 14 when she met 25-year-old Presley at a party in Nauheim, Germany. She was the daughter of a U.S. Naval pilot, and Presley was serving in the army despite being a well-known musician. Presley's parents pressured the two to marry, and they tied the knot in 1967 when she was 21. While even hardcore Elvis fans have a hard time with the initial age gap, Priscilla maintains the two didn't sleep together until their wedding night. They had one daughter, Lisa Marie, and amicably divorced in 1973.

Jerry Seinfeld

Who He Dated: Shoshanna Lonstein, 17

At the height of his Seinfeld fame in 1993, Jerry Seinfeld literally picked up a high school student walking around in Central Park. After getting the then-17-year-old Lonstein's number, the pair started dating quite seriously despite the age difference (he was 39 at the time). Lonstein was a senior, and the two continued to date for the four years she attended college. Seinfeld spent a lot of time defending their relationship and the two split for good in 1997, shortly before he met his current wife, Jessica Sklar, who was a little more age appropriate. 

Joel Madden

Who He Dated: Hilary Duff, 16

Back in 2004, Joel Madden and Hilary Duff did the familiar dance of being "just friends" until her 18th birthday in 2006. When asked in 2015 about losing her virginity in Cosmopolitan, Duff stated, "I had a 26-year-old boyfriend. So everyone can make their own assumptions about what I was doing." Well that settles that. 

Kobe Bryant

Who He Dated: Vanessa Bryant, 17

The Bryants have dealt with quite a few relationship headlines in the media, so the fact they met when Vanessa was only 17 is probably the least of their concerns. When the basketball star was 21-years-old, he met Vanessa while she was working as a back-up dancer for a music video. Six months later, the two got engaged and they tied the knot sans pre-nup when she was 18-years-old. Despite nearly breaking up on several occasions, the two are still married and have three children together.

R. Kelly

Who He Dated: Aaliyah, 15

R. Kelly has certainly gotten into a lot of trouble for his actions with underage girls, but back in the '90s he had an odd relationship with up-and-coming R&B singer Aaliyah. Kelly was introduced to Aaliyah as a "mentor" and he helped write and produce her first album, Age Ain't Nothing But A Number when she was 14. Oh, the irony. Despite denials from both parties that their relationship was platonic, the two secretly wed in 1994. The marriage was ultimately annulled as Aaliyah was not yet old enough to consent to a lifetime with the 27-year-old Kelly. Tragically, she passed away in a plane crash in 2001, so we can't hear her side of this story. 

Wilmer Valderrama

Who He Dated: Mandy Moore, 16; Lindsay Lohan, 17; Demi Lovato, 17

It might just be easier to list the celebrity teens Wilmer Valderrama hasn't dated. He dated 16-year-old Mandy Moore from 2001-2002 despite being four years her senior, and he later bragged on Howard Stern that he took her virginity. Classy! At age 24, Valderrama dated 17-year-old Lindsay Lohan though they kept the relationship a secret until her 18th birthday in 2004. They broke up a year later, inspiring her broken-hearted song, "Over." And in 2010, the 30-year-old began dating 17-year-old Demi Lovato. The two have been on-and-off since then but are currently off. 


Who He Dated: Kylie Jenner, 16

The rapper and the youngest member of the Kardashian reality clan began "hanging out" an awful lot beginning in 2014 when she was 16 and he was 24. They've been dating on and off since then, though they became a lot more openly "on" since her 18th birthday in August 2016. Tyga caught a lot of heat for the relationship, not only from the public but from the mother of his son, Blac Chyna, who recently had a daughter with Jenner's brother, Rob Kardashian. When did keeping up get so difficult?

The Weeknd

Who He Dated: Bella Hadid, 18

The Weeknd, also known as Abel Tesfaye, met model Bella Hadid at an opportune age. Then 25, the R&B artist expressed an interest in working with Hadid, and he eventually met her in 2015 when she was just 18. Despite their age difference, the two remained relatively inconspicuous for the year-and-a-half they dated. They broke up due to "scheduling conflicts"and then both immediately appeared in the 2016 Victoria Secret Fashion Show. Awkward.  

Justin Gaston

Who He Dated: Miley Cyrus, 16

The underwear model/singer/actor is maybe best known for his brief fling with Miley Cyrus in 2008 when he was 20 and she was just getting her driver's license. The two were introduced by Miley's father, Billy Ray Cyrus. Because what father doesn't want his teenage daughter dating a 20-year-old underwear model? They ended up dating for less than a year and their age difference avoided too much flack because Miley was still in her Disney-purity-ring phase.

<![CDATA[10 Notorious Murders That You Were Almost Totally Wrong About All This Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/weird-facts-you-didnt-know-about-notorious-murders/cristina-sanza

History is full of horrible crimes, though they might not be quite what you think. Several notorious murders have been misconstrued by the public, either to sensationalize the story or because the details of the events are murky. Even if you're a true crime buff who can rattle off obscure facts about prolific serial killers and terrifying murderers, you probably got these cases wrong.

This list focuses on the serial killers whose stories aren't what you've been told. For instance, Lizzie Borden might not have been all bad - she likely had a sensitive side at odds with her supposed axing of her family. As for Charles Manson, some people believe he never told his followers to commit murder at all.

You might think that you know the details of these notorious murders, but emerging details and misconceptions mean there's still more to learn about these famous crimes. Read on for more information on the killers you got all wrong.

10 Notorious Murders That You Were Almost Totally Wrong About All This Time,

Bonnie and Clyde

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow are two of the most notorious criminals in American history. The pair met in Texas in 1930 and began a romantic relationship/crime spree that ended only four years later when they were killed in a police ambush. They mostly stole cars and robbed stores and a few banks, but they killed at least thirteen people, according to the FBI.

Bonnie and Clyde went down in history as cold-blooded outlaws, but in reality, they were much softer than that. Bonnie never actually killed anyone - she just loaded the bullets into the guns that Clyde would use later. When Clyde did kill people, it was only because he and the Barrow gang were cornered and he didn't want to go back to prison. Whenever it was possible, Clyde would take a hostage, make a getaway, and then release the person once they were safely away from the police. Sometimes he would even give the hostage money to get back home.

The most famous photos of Bonnie and Clyde, smoking cigars and posing with guns, were taken by the couple as jokes. Newspapers reprinted the photos, which contributed to their images as dangerous killers.

Charles Manson

You know the story: Charles Manson convinced his followers, known as The Family, to go on a two-day killing spree from August 9-10, 1969. He told them it was their duty to start a race war that he called "Helter Skelter," and that when it was over, he and his Family would emerge to take over the world. The Family murdered seven people over the course of those two days, which the police dubbed the Tate-LaBianca murders.

Manson collected followers by targeting troubled young women and "feeding them a cocktail of LSD, alcohol, and spiritual aphorisms." When it came time to begin Helter Skelter, the girls were ready to do anything Charlie said. Even though Manson was convicted of first-degree murder along with Family members Susan Atkins, Leslie Van Houten, Patricia Krenwinkel, and Tex Watson, he was never present during the actual murders. Charlie didn't need to get his hands dirty because he had devoted followers who would do anything for him.

It's pretty likely, though, that Charlie never even told his Family to kill anyone. Taking cues from Dale Carnegie's book How To Win Friends And Influence People, which he picked up during a prison stint in 1957, Charlie became an expert in manipulation. He could talk about ideas in such a way that the other person would think they had thought of it first. According to the podcast You Must Remember This, Charlie would "say just enough to get people to solve problems for him, without actually telling them to do anything." Manson became one of the most notorious murderers in history, all through the power of mind control.

Murder of Kitty Genovese

On March 13, 1964, Kitty Genovese was stabbed to death by Winston Moseley outside of her apartment in Queens. The crime was horrific, but it became notorious because of the headline in The New York Times on March 27: "37 Who Saw Murder Didn't Call The Police." This led psychologists to popularize the concept of "The Bystander Effect."

The newspaper reported that Kitty's neighbors, not wanting to get involved, did nothing to help her while she was being attacked. Kitty's family believed that she died alone, but her brother Bill decided to investigate further.

He released a documentary in 2016 about Kitty's murder called The Witness. In it, he learns new information that completely changes the circumstances of that night. After being stabbed, Kitty retreated to the back of her apartment building and out of sight, leading many neighbors to think she had just been having a quarrel with her boyfriend. Several neighbors actually did call the police and were told that the crime had already been reported. The most striking difference is that one of Kitty's female friends who lived in the building went downstairs to hold her while they waited for police to arrive, even though the killer may have still been lurking.

Lizzie Borden

Lizzie Borden was acquitted for the murder of her father and stepmother, but it's widely believed that she was 100% guilty. On August 4, 1892, in Fall River, Massachusetts, Andrew Borden and his wife Abby were brutally murdered with a hatchet. Lizzie discovered her father's body and woke the maid, Bridget Sullivan, who had been sleeping upstairs. The body of Abby Borden was found in an upstairs bedroom.

Lizzie immediately became the only suspect. During her trial, Lizzie was portrayed as an emotionless monster who had a terrible relationship with her parents. Andrew Borden supposedly favored his wife over his daughters and refused to let them spend money on anything. He even refused to install indoor plumbing in his home. Investigators believed that Lizzie murdered them so that she and her sister Emma could inherit their father's money and finally have independence.

The jury didn't think there was enough evidence to convict, but Lizzie lived out the rest of her life in notoriety anyway. She never left Fall River and died there in 1927. In 2012, the notes collected by the Borden family lawyer, Andrew Jackson Jennings, were donated to the Fall River Historical Society. The notes contradicted the theory that Andrew Borden was uncaring and cold. Jennings wrote that during conversations with Andrew, he talked about how much he loved receiving letters from his daughters. Lizzie herself also wrote letters while she was imprisoned during the trial that show "a sensitive, grieving side of her."

If Lizzie had such a loving relationship with her father, it's hard to imagine her killing him in one of the most gruesome murders in history.

Natalie Wood

Natalie Wood, best known for her roles in West Side Story and Rebel Without A Cause, drowned off the coast of Catalina Island in 1981. She was spending the weekend on a yacht with her husband, Robert Wagner, and her co-star Christopher Walken. At 1:30 A.M. on November 29, the captain sent out a distress call. It seemed that Natalie had left the yacht in a small dinghy and was now missing. Her body was found in the water six hours later.

Natalie had a life-long fear of drowning. Because of this, her friends and family insisted that she would not have left on her own in the middle of the night, but foul play could never be proven. The public suspected Robert Wagner, but he was never charged with anything.

On November 17, 2011, the L.A. County Sheriff's Department announced that they were reopening the case after getting new information. Marilyn Wayne had been on a boat less than 50 yards away from Wagner's yacht on the night of Natalie's death. She reported hearing a woman calling out for help. She said she called the harbor patrol and got no answer, so she called the sheriff's office and was told a helicopter was on its way. Help never arrived.

The yacht's captain, Dennis Davern, also reported that Wood and Wagner had gotten into a drunken argument about her friendship with Walken in the hours leading up to her death, but still, no charges have been brought against Robert Wagner.

Thelma Todd

Thelma Todd's death may only be familiar to the die-hard true crime fans. Her death was ruled "accidental with possible suicidal tendencies," but it's possible that authorities got it all wrong.

Thelma was an actress known for Marx brothers comedies and Laurel and Hardy films. By 1934, she had become a business owner with her boyfriend Roland West and his wife, Jewel Carmen. The trio opened a restaurant called Thelma Todd's Sidewalk Cafe, and to make things even more awkward, all three lived above it.

On the morning of December 16, 1935, Thelma's maid discovered her body in the garage, slumped over the wheel of her running car. It appeared that she had been locked out of her apartment the night before, and after starting her car to warm up, she fell asleep and died of carbon monoxide poisoning.

But the facts didn't add up. Thelma was dressed in a party outfit that she had worn to the Trocadero on Saturday night, but multiple people claimed they saw her on Sunday. Why was she found in the same outfit from Saturday night if she had survived through the day on Sunday? Other witnesses at the crime scene reported that she seemed to have a broken nose, bruises, a chipped tooth, and broken ribs, but surviving crime scene photos just show her slumped over with no visible signs of injury.

There was no shortage of people who may have wanted to harm Thelma: her love triangle/business partners Roland West and Jewel Carmen; Todd's own ex-husband, Pat DiCicco, whom she fought with on Saturday night; or her other rumored boyfriend, the mobster Lucky Luciano. Still, there wasn't enough evidence to bring murder charges against anyone.

The Boston Strangler Might Have Confessed To Get A Book Deal

From June 1962 through January 1964, the Boston area was terrorized by a killer known as the Boston Strangler. At least thirteen women were strangled in their homes during that time. The victims varied in age and race with no apparent connection between them. It seemed as though police were dealing with multiple copycat killers rather than one man working alone.

Everything changed when Albert DeSalvo was arrested for breaking into a woman's home and sexually assaulting her. He began confessing to numerous crimes; first, to various robberies, then to a series of rapes, and finally to being the Boston Strangler. He seemed to know a striking amount of detail about the crime scenes, but there was a chance he'd merely gotten the details from the real killer.

Due to flawed interrogation tactics, it was impossible to know if DeSalvo was telling the truth. He may have confessed to crimes he didn't commit in order to get a book deal, hoping that the proceeds would take care of his wife and children. There was no evidence linking him to the Boston Strangler murders, but he was eventually convicted for earlier crimes and sentenced to life in prison.

In 2013, DNA evidence finally linked Albert DeSalvo to the Boston Strangler's last victim, Mary Sullivan. It's still unclear if he murdered all thirteen women or if he was only after the fame and fortune that would come from being the notorious Boston Strangler.

JonBenét Ramsey Might Have Been Murdered By Her Family

It can be argued that every theory about the murder of JonBenét Ramsey is totally wrong. Her body was found in the basement of her home on Christmas Day 1996 after an apparent botched kidnapping attempt. Investigators uncovered many flaws in this intruder theory but have never been able to figure out what really happened to JonBenét.

DNA evidence cleared the Ramsey family in 2008, though suspicions still linger about their connection to the murder. The ransom note found at the crime scene was later found to have been written on a notepad from their own home. The kidnappers demanded $118,000 in exchange for JonBenét's return, which was exactly the amount that her father received as a bonus that year.

The recent series The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey investigated the theory that JonBenét's older brother, Burke, was involved in her death as well, or at least knew more that he was telling police. Her parents had said they'd put their daughter to bed immediately after returning from a Christmas party, but autopsy results showed that she'd eaten pineapple shortly before her death. Crime scene photos showed a bowl of pineapple at the kitchen table. In footage recorded during police questioning, Burke was asked to identify the contents of the bowl and he paused before saying, "Oh." Did he give something away in that moment or is this just another theory that can never be proven?

The Black Dahlia Wasn't The Only Victim

The murder of Elizabeth Short, known as The Black Dahlia, is one of the most gruesome unsolved murders in history. Shocking crime scene photos show her dismembered body as it was discovered in Leimert Park in the early hours of January 15, 1947. Her murder became part of pop culture because it seemed uniquely horrific, but according to the Hollywood & Crime podcast, more than a dozen other women died in similar ways in the Los Angeles area during the 1940s.

Ora Murray was found strangled and mutilated in 1943; her case was known as The White Gardenia murder because a gardenia wrapped in tinsel was found crushed beneath her body. Virgie Lee Griffin and Lillian Johnson were murdered and mutilated by Otto Stephen Wilson at two different hotels on November 15, 1944. Wilson was caught that afternoon and suspected of killing other women in the area, but he was executed in 1946 and could not have committed the Black Dahlia murder. Perhaps whoever did kill Elizabeth Short is connected to one of these other forgotten women.

Sam Sheppard Didn't Kill His Wife

Marilyn Sheppard was brutally murdered on July 4, 1954, in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. Her husband, Dr. Sam Sheppard, had fallen asleep downstairs and woke to the sound of his wife's screams from their bedroom. Sheppard claimed that he ran into the room and was knocked unconscious by a "bushy-haired man." When he woke up and discovered that his wife was dead, he chased after the intruder, only to be knocked out a second time.

Police were suspicious. The family's young son, Chip, had slept through his mother's attack down the hall. The family dog, who usually barked at intruders, was not heard by the neighbors. Marilyn was pregnant at the time of her death, and investigators soon discovered that Sam Sheppard had been having affairs for years, giving him a possible motive for getting rid of his wife. He was convicted of her murder and sentenced to life in prison.

But the story doesn't end there. In 1959, another suspect emerged: Richard Eberling. He was a window washer who worked for the Sheppard family and apparently had a thing for Marilyn Sheppard. Eberling was arrested after one of his clients suspected him of robbery, and one of Marilyn's rings was found in his possession. Sheppard got a re-trial in 1966, but his lawyer, F. Lee Bailey (who also represented the Boston Strangler and O.J. Simpson), chose not to pursue Eberling as a suspect.

In 1998, DNA evidence exonerated Sam Sheppard, suggesting that police may have been wrong about the mysterious bushy-haired man and it could have been Richard Eberling all along.

<![CDATA[Actors Who Should Regret Their Comic Book Movie Roles]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/actors-who-regret-their-comic-movie-roles/ranker-comics
Super hero movies! The Golden Ticket! The creme de la creme! Once you make one you know you've made it and it's the highlight of your career. Nothing can stop you, and it's worth everything that went into getting it. Right? Well... that's not always the case. 

We live in a golden age of comic book films right now, The Avengers universe, The Dark Knight Films, Guardians of the Galaxy, but none of these movies could have possibly existed 20 or even 15 years ago. Everything leading up to now has lead to those being good films. Before that was a whole slew of horrendous adaptations of great (and admittedly not-so-great) comic properties. 

Many of the biggest names in Hollywood were attached to these disasters and while being in a Marvel movie now is great if your Chris Hemsworth, or Chris Evans, or Chris Pratt (hey what a second...) back then it could mean your Arnold Schwarzenegger suffering through Batman & Robin, and that's not even the movie he's on this list for! 

So let's take a look back at the less glamorous roles these iconic actors filled. These are the Actors who regret their comic roles!

Actors Who Should Regret Their Comic Book Movie Roles,

Arnold Schwarzenegger
He even uses the film as punishment for his kids. "It's the worst film I have ever made. Now, when my kids get out of line, they're sent to their room and forced to watch 'Red Sonja' 10 times. I never have too much trouble with them."
Ben Affleck
"The only movie I actually regret is 'Daredevil.' It just kills me. I love that story, that character, and the fact that it got fucked up the way it did stays with me. Maybe that's part of the motivation to do 'Batman.'I understand I'm at a disadvantage with the internet. If I thought the result would be another 'Daredevil,' I'd be out there picketing myself. [laughs] Why would I make the movie if I didn't think it was going to be good and that I could be good in it?"
George Clooney
"I am the least qualified person to comment on anyone playing the role of Batman since I so terribly destroyed the part. I tend to look at it like this - let's just see what the movie is before everyone starts beating him up. He is a smart man, he knows what he is doing.I am the least qualified person to comment on anyone playing the role of Batman since I so terribly destroyed the part. I tend to look at it like this - let's just see what the movie is before everyone starts beating him up. He is a smart man, he knows what he is doing."
George Reeves
He often spoke out of his hatred of portraying the character saying it was "Beneath his dignity" and hated putting on that "monkey suit" he hated most of all people yelling out "There's Superman" in the Oscar winning 'From here to Eternity' to such an extent in test screening that producers cut his part down. 

Some believe his hatred of the character and his feeling trapped in it, was a contributing factor in his (apparent, very suspicious) suicide.
Halle Berry
”First of all, I want to thank Warner Brothers. Thank you for putting me in a piece of s**t, god-awful movie. You know, it was just what my career needed. I was at the top and Catwoman just plummeted me to the bottom.”
Jennifer Garner
Jennifer Garner is far too nice to say anything bad about her own movie publicly, but that doesn't mean she didn't bash "Elektra" in private. Garner's ex-boyfriend Michael Vartan spilled the beans to Us Weekly. "I heard 'Elektra' was awful," he said. "Jennifer called me and told me it was awful. She had to do it because of 'Daredevil.' It was in her contract."
Jessica Alba
"I wanted to stop acting. The director was like, 'It looks too real. It looks too painful. Can you be prettier when you cry? Cry pretty, Jessica.' He was like, 'Don't do that thing with your face. Just make it flat. We can CGI the tears in.' And I'm like, But there's no connection to a human being. And then it got me thinking: Am I not good enough? Are my instincts and my emotions not good enough? Do people hate them so much that they don't want me to be a person? Am I not allowed to be a person in my work? And so I just said, 'F--k it. I don't care about this business anymore."
Jim Carrey
"I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart."
Ryan Reynolds
Now this one is tricky because Reynolds is once again reprising his role as Deadpool a CHARACTER he loves dearly, but the INTERPRETATION of that character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine oh so very loathed. So he had to tread lightly.

“I don’t think you can [fit it within the Deadpool story from 
Wolverine], because that character would really sully that whole world. The script is one rewrite away from Deadpool jumping across the desk at the studio executive and attacking him… But I’ve always wanted to do the movie just if only because Deadpool would get to do his own movie trailer. So that’s a thing that we were dying to do and we would love to be a part of that. I don’t know how it would fit though, no. In the current iteration of the script, it doesn’t address Wolverine – though it does address Deadpool’s appearance in Wolverine. Deadpool was not happy with Deadpool in Wolverine. He has a sort of a WTF!? moment with that.”

Topher Grace as Venom
There's no direct quote, Topher respects the film industry... but you know there's no way he doesn't regret THAT.

<![CDATA[Dying Words: Last Words Spoken By Famous People At Death]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/dying-words-last-words-spoken-by-famous-people-at-death/notable-quotables
Dying words of famous people seem to be a little bit more poetic than the typical dying utterances of the common folk. Whether they've got the money and influence to be afforded the time to gather their thoughts, or because they're just plain cooler than many of us, there exist some memorable dying words from some very famous people. 

Granted, in order to record someone's final words, there has to be some normality and/or convenience to the person's death; for the most part, you'll not find any of these famous historical figures on the list of bizarre deaths from the 19th or even the 20th century. These notable historical figures died in bed, or in battle, or were somehow able to get their dying thoughts across to someone for recording on a list of last words of famous people.

What are some of the most memorable last words from famous people? What are the best dying words ever recorded? Some of the most notable last words of historical figures are recorded here on this list of famous final words. Make sure to upvote your favorites!

<![CDATA[People Who Died from Spontaneous Human Combustion]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/people-who-died-from-spontaneous-human-combustion/alby-thompson
List of people who are reported to have died from spontaneous human combustion. These are all alleged cases that have been cited as part of studies or investigations into the phenomenon of spontaneous human combustion.

Spontaneous combustion (or SHC for short) refers to a process in which a human body burns, ignites or explodes without an obvious external cause. There have, in the last 300 years or so, been over 200 cases of alleged spontaneous combustion leading to deaths in humans. Though no proven cause has ever been determined, there are numerous theories as to why some humans may spontaneously combust, including paranormal intervention (by ghosts, say, or demons), natural processes within the human body that aren't fully understood or invisible but present external phenomenon.

In most reported instances, spontaneous human combustion victims already had little mobility, often due to advanced age or obesity. The body is typically entirely incinerated, with the immediate surroundings around the person also charred from contact with the explosion. Almost always, the victim was alone at the time of death, meaning that there are few eyewitness accounts of SHC actually occurring. It has often been suggested that SHC is not really occurring and that unknown external variables - such as lit cigarettes or slowly smoldering flames - were actually to blame.

<![CDATA[Where You've Seen the American Horror Story Actors Before]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/other-roles-by-american-horror-story-actors/devon-ashby
Each new season of American Horror Story, one of television's creepiest shows, seems to be the most skin-crawlingly bizarre one yet. With the show's repertory cast becoming reassuringly familiar to audiences, it's worth exploring past roles of the American Horror Story cast, and where you've seen some of these talented and versatile actors prior to their current foray into the mad and the macabre on this hit FX horror series.

Setting it apart from similar shows of its caliber, is that the AHS creators make a point of casting the crazy American Horror Story characters with big-name stars, to the point that some critics have accused the show, exasperatedly, of "stunt casting." For a show with such a deliciously campy feel, however, casting performers with a strange and various body of work under their belt seems like a no-brainer - but even most actors you recognize are harder to pigeonhole than you might expect.

Below is a list of American Horror Story performers paired with appearances they've made outside of the series - the good, the bad, and the just plain weird. This American Horror Story trivia will keep you guessing!
Where You've Seen the American Horror Story Actors Before,

Angela Bassett
Angela Bassett is a Hollywood heavyweight on par with Lange and Bates. A few years prior to her first appearance on Horror Story, she popped up in several episodes of the spy thriller Alias, as CIA director Hayden Chase.
Denis O'Hare
Fans of the gruesome and gory may already have recognized Denis O'Hare from his role as high-ranking vampire aristocrat Russell Edgington on HBO's True Blood. Howeverhis horrific burn-scar makeup when he first turned up on Murder House initially made him a little tough to place.
Emma Roberts
Emma Roberts appeared in a slew of notable big-screen roles, including We're the Millers and fledgling director Gia Coppola's indie darling Palo Alto. Fans of Roberts's vampy, two-faced sexuality in Coven and Freak Show, however, may be shocked to learn that she began her career playing perky tween Addie Singer on the Nickelodeon show Unfabulous.
Evan Peters
Before making his debut on American Horror Story, Evan Peters perfected his sulky charisma playing ironically-named high school student Jack Daniels on One Tree Hill.
Frances Conroy
Before appearing on all four seasons of American Horror Story, Frances Conroy won a Golden Globe (and was nominated for several Emmys) for her starring role as Ruth Fisher on HBO's Six Feet Under.
Jessica Lange
Jessica Lange is old school Hollywood royalty, and has been starring in critically acclaimed and award-winning classic films (like King Kong, All that Jazz, and Cape Fear) since the 1970s. More recently, Lange made an artificially-aged appearance alongside Drew Barrymore in HBO's fictionalized version of the famously quirkly mother-daughter documentary, Grey Gardens.
John Carroll Lynch
Before he gave the world nightmares playing Twisty on Freak Show, John Carroll Lynch appeared as escaped convict Varlyn Stroud on the similarly-carnival-themed series, Carnivàle.
Kathy Bates
Like Angela Bassett and Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates is an established Hollywood powerhouse with too many unforgettable headlining roles to keep track of. However, fans who remember her from Titanic, About Schmidt, or Misery, may have missed her memorable string of appearances as Jo Bennett on NBC's The Office.
Michael Chiklis
Before he played an emotionally tortured strong man on Freak Show, Michael Chiklis played an emotionally tortured vice cop on FX's The Shield.
Sarah Paulson
Sarah Paulson has been working in film and television since the early 90s. In 2005, before cranking up the high emotion for American Horror Story, she appeared on HBO's Deadwood as the exceedingly composed Ms. Isringhausen.

<![CDATA[The Best At What They Do]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-best-at-what-they-do/clark-benson
I give Maximum Respect to all on this list. Each is, IMHO, the best alive at What They Do. The list reflects my personal hobbies and interests and is certainly nowhere near comprehensive. Note: at present, this list is almost all Americans. As it grows, that will change, though it will likely always slant towards the U S of A for a number of different reasons, which I may elucidate on at some point.
List is not ranked by any particular metric - when I think of someone to add I just stick them at the bottom. I've turned on the VoteRank feature to let anyone vote on it and have it rerank once there are a decent amount of votes - but everyone on the list belongs.
<br>Updates: since the list was built I have sadly had to remove two people (Steve Jobs, Elmore Leonard) due to their passings. I also removed Aaron Sorkin as "writer of cinematic dialogue" due to the pompousness of his The Newsroom.
The Best At What They Do,

Bill Murray
Comedic Actor.
Bob Dylan
Bruce Springsteen
Rock Performer.
Clint Eastwood
Film Auteur/All Around Talent
Daniel Day-Lewis
Dramatic Film Actor.
Jon Stewart
Political Satirist.
Martin Scorsese
Film Director.
Tina Fey
Comedic TV Producer.
Warren Buffett
Willie Nelson
Country Singer/Songwriter.

<![CDATA[43 of the Best Celebrity Perfume Scents]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/celebrities-with-perfumes/celebrity-lists
Do you ever wish that you could smell like your favorite celebrity? Many famous people have their own perfume lines, including many actors, singers, athletes, and models. Some of the biggest selling celeb fragrances include Elizabeth Taylor's "White Diamonds" (a billion dollar seller since the early 1990s), Jennifer Lopez's line (especially "Glow by J.Lo") and, believe it or not, Derek Jeter's "Driven." This list of celebrity fragrances includes some of the best famous perfume lines on the market. Sadly, it's not scratch and sniff.

Celebrities often pair up with some of the best perfumers and fragrance makers to launch their own lines of colognes. These designer fragrances are sold in high-end department stores, beauty stores, and of course, online, via perfume and cologne websites. Unlike celebrities who simply endorse major perfume lines, the celebs listed here decided to branch out and create their own, signature scents by working with some heavyweight perfume and cosmetics companies.

Many of these colognes and perfumes went on to be best-sellers. Jennifer Lopez had a massive hit with her first fragrance, "Glow," in 2002, and she went on to cash in with several additional scents ("Still," "Live" and "Deseo" among them). Some of the most successful lines of fragrances have been created by Sarah Jessica Parker ("SJP NYC" and "Lovely"), Beyonce ("Heat" and "Pulse"), Paris Hilton ("Paris Hilton"), Taylor Swift ("Wonderstruck") and Sean "P. Diddy" Combs ("Unforgivable").

<![CDATA[10 Rock Stars Who Died at 26]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/rock-stars-who-died-at-26/ranker-music

List of rock stars who died at age 26. This list features rock stars from any era who died at the age of 26. They come from different areas of rock, from hard rock to R&B/rock blends, and even folk rock, but each musician on this list was a great in his or her genre – and each died much too young. While they may have only lived to 26, the rock stars on this list are still remembered and beloved by fans today.

Perhaps one of the most famous rock stars who died at 26 is Hillel Slovak, a founding member of the California rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers. He was a talented guitarist who heavily influenced the sound of the Chili Peppers, and he was proficient in playing everything from speed metal, to funk, to hard rock. Slovak was taken in typical rock and roll fashion: He overdosed on heroin. His music is still loved today, even though his career was cut so short.

Interestingly, musicians on this list may have gained a more notorious type of fame if they had lived only one more year. Rock stars who died at the age of 27 are said to be in the 27 Club, the name given to the group of rock stars who have died at that age, generally in terrible circumstances.

On this list, you can find all the rock stars whose fame and fortune couldn’t protect them from dying young. While these rock stars may only have lived to 26, their memories will live on and on as we continue to remember them and enjoy their music.

10 Rock Stars Who Died at 26,

Gram Parsons
Gram Parsons’s music earned him a spot as No. 87 on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” in 2005. Parsons, who performed with The Byrds and Emmylou Harris, died after what was officially ruled an overdose of alcohol and morphine in 1973 in Joshua Tree, California.
Hillel Slovak
Hillel Slovak was one of the original members of the rock group Red Hot Chili Peppers. He played guitar on the albums Freaky Styley and The Uplift Mofo Party Plan before overdosing on heroin in 1988.
Jesse Belvin
Jesse Belvin was a singer, pianist, and songwriter who gained fame in the 1950s. He recorded songs like "Goodnight My Love" and "The Girl of My Dreams" before his death in a car crash in 1960, in Arkansas.
Jimmy McCulloch
Jimmy McCulloch is perhaps best remembered for his tenure with Wings (1974-1977), although his guitar work can be heard on many albums by other great artists, including John Entwistle and Peter Frampton. He died of a heroin overdose in 1979.
Nick Drake
Nick Drake was a native of England, but his folk-rock music is praised across the globe. He suffered from depression during his lifetime, and in 1974, he overdosed on a prescribed anti-depressant. No one is certain whether this was intentional or accidental.
Otis Redding
Otis Redding, who hailed from Georgia, was an influential and popular singer known for his soul and R&B records. He died in 1967 when his plane crashed on the way to a performance in Wisconsin.
Paul Kossoff
Paul Kossoff, an English guitarist who played with the band Free and was listed at number 51 on Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time," died in 1976. He died of a heroin-related heart problem, though it is likely that his unhappiness with the end of Free also contributed to a decline in his health.
Yutaka Ozaki
Yutaka Ozaki was a popular musician in his native Japan. He passed away in 1992 under mysterious circumstances. The official ruling was pulmonary edema, although some have suggested that his death was actually a homicide.
Matthew Fletcher
Matthew Fletcher was the drummer for British band Heavenly. The group released four albums, but Fletcher died just before the release of their fourth album, having committed suicide.
Randy Rhoades
Guitarist Randy Rhoades played with Ozzy Osbourne and Quiet Riot. He died in 1982 in a plane crash in Leesburg, Florida, while on tour with Osbourne.

<![CDATA[The 10 Best Ryder Cup Players of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-10-best-ryder-cup-players-of-all-time/clickon

With the 2016 Ryder Cup fast approaching, we look at the greatest players to ever compete. 

The 10 Best Ryder Cup Players of All Time,

Arnold Palmer

Arnie terrorised Great Britain and Ireland during the 60s and 70s and he still has the best-ever record for an American- 22-8-2, .719

Colin Montgomerie

Montgomerie played the Ryder Cup eight times, 36 matches total, and lost only nine times. His overall record was 20-9-7 (.653), and that included an 8-3-3 mark in foursomes.

Ian Poulter

His winning percentage of .722 is still the best in Ryder Cup history for all golfers with at least 15 matches played.

Lanny Wadkins

Wadkins was 9-6-0 in foursomes, 7-3-1 in fourballs and 4-2-2 in singles. That adds up to 20-11-3, a 63.2-percent success rate.

Lee Westwood

Europe have leaned on Lee Westwood during his consistent career. He will be crucial at this year's Ryder Cup.

Nick Faldo

 Faldo holds three very destinguished Ryder he holds the Ryder Cup records for most match victories (23), most matches played (46) and most Cups played (11).

Seve Ballesteros

Seve's record was achieved against some phenomenal opposition. His record speaks for itself: 20-12-5 (.608). His partnership with Jose Maria Olazabal was legendary. 

Tom Kite

Kite played in seven Cups, 28 matches, but it's in singles where Kite really stands out. He played seven singles matches and never lost (5-0-2). 

Tom Lehman

An unlikely inclusion on the list, Lehman played in three Ryder Cups finishing with a 65% win percentage after 10 matches. It may seem modest, but he played (and beat) some of the best opposition Europe had to offer. 

Jose Maria Olazabal

Jose's Ryder Cup record is up there with the best: 18-8-5. His partnership with Seve is considered to be one of the best in history.

<![CDATA[The 10 Most Questionable Choices for TIME'S Person of the Year]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/controversial-time-person-of-year/t-l-perez

Time has been selecting a Person of the Year since 1929, and the title is generally considered honorable and prestigious. Usually, the magazine makes smart (or at least understandable) choices. The title has gone to important people like Martin Luther King Jr., Pope John XXIII, Gandhi, Ronald Reagan, and Barack Obama. With that being said, Time has made quite a few questionable choices throughout the years as well. This list of past recipients includes truly evil people like Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. The magazine also made lightheartedly questionable choices like The Inheritors (1966) and You (2006). 

Time defends these decisions by stating that the magazine’s main criteria are importance and influence. They select people (or things) that change the world, not necessarily people who are morally good. Nevertheless, it is disturbing that Time has given the title to genocidal dictators, war criminals, and scandalous liars. So who were the most controversial Time people of the year? Read on to see some who got the most backlash and leave a comment with who you think the worst Time person of the year was.

The 10 Most Questionable Choices for TIME'S Person of the Year,

Adolf Hitler

The most questionable choice for Time's Person of the Year was undoubtedly Adolf Hitler. For some reason, the magazine chose to award this coveted title to a genocidal warmonger in 1938. Just one year later, Hitler invaded Poland and started World War II. This Man of the Year was responsible for the death of over 11 million innocent people

Wallis Simpson

In 1936, Wallis Simpson was named the first ever Woman of the Year; however, she was nothing more than a relatively useless socialite who openly associated with Nazis. Simpson's claim to fame was her marriage to Prince Edward (formerly King Edward VIII) who abdicated his throne to marry her.

During World War II, the couple met with Hitler and other high-ranking Nazi officials regularly. According to many sources, she and her husband had secretly agreed to rule Britain if Hitler managed to win the war and claim it.  

Joseph Stalin (Twice)

Just one year after naming Hitler their Man of the Year, Time decided to give the honor to Joseph Stalin in 1939. This brutal man was the leader of the Soviet Union from 1922-1952. He killed his political enemies, imprisoned and murdered thousands of people deemed "enemies of the working class," and forced millions of people into Gulag labor camps. According to many experts, Stalin was responsible for more deaths than Hitler. Oh, and Time named him Man of the Year again in 1942! 

The Inheritor

Time gave "The Inheritor" the prestigious title in 1966. The cover story specifically mentioned a few notable young adults including an artist, actress, athlete, and chess player. However, the award technically went to everyone under 25 (at the time), or the Baby Boomer Generation. This choice was questionable because it was overly general and non-unique. Sure, many individuals under 25 in 1966 were fairly progressive, but isn't every generation more progressive than the last? Aren't there notable young adults in every generation?

Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger

After giving him the title the year before, Time named Richard Nixon the person of the year in 1972 along with Henry Kissinger. Just two years later, Nixon became the first-ever president to resign from office due to the infamous Watergate Scandal. As an American national security advisor, Kissinger was responsible for violent rebellions and coup d'états in other nations. Many consider him a war criminal. 

Vladimir Putin

In 2007, Time named Vladimir Putin Man of the Year for some reason. Sure, he advanced Russia's economy, but his immoral actions certainly outweigh his accomplishments. Although Russia calls itself a democracy, Putin has managed to sidestep constitutional term limits to remain in power since 1999 by switching his title from President to Prime Minister (over and over again). After he was named Person of the Year, his list of shocking actions grew to include jailing activists and journalists, annexing Crimea, and passing homophobic laws. 

Ruhollah Khomeini

Rudollah Khomeini (also known as Ayatollah Khomeini) was the Supreme Leader of Iran from 1979-1989 who once equated democracy to prostitution. This harsh leader was named Time's Man of the Year in 1979 shortly after establishing a theocratic government based strictly on religious writings from thousands of years ago.

He killed thousands of his political opponents and he once said, "Americans are the great Satan, the wounded snake."

Nikita Khrushchev

One of Stalin's closest advisors and future successors, Nikita Khrushchev, was given the prestigious title in 1957. He was the leader of the Soviet Union from 1953-1964. Essentially, he was the main enemy of the United States throughout the peak of the Cold War. Before this, he supported Stalin's labor camps and political purges.

Khrushchev was also responsible for the Cuban Missile Crisis (which almost started World War III). Although he was generally less oppressive and deadly than Stalin, he was certainly a questionable choice for Man of the Year.


Time named "You" the Person of the Year in 2006. That's right, you. This was meant to refer to everyone who uploads information to user-generated content sites like Wikipedia, YouTube, and Facebook. Critics found this choice trite and gimmicky. One writer even claimed that this decision was a self-promotional marketing ploy. 

The Middle Americans

In 1969, Time deemed "Middle Americans" the People of the Year, a choice that included (as they defined it) pretty much everyone in America.

“The Middle Americans tend to be grouped in the nation's heartland more than on its coasts. But they live in Queens, N.Y., and Van Nuys, Calif., as well as in Skokie and Chillicothe. They tend toward the middle-aged and the middlebrow. They are defined as much by what they are not as by what they are. As a rule, they are not the poor or the rich. Still, many wealthy business executives are Middle Americans. H. Ross Perot, the Texas millionaire who organized a group called 'United We Stand Inc.' to support the President on the war, is an example.” 

To many, this vast and vague choice was the same as not choosing anyone at all.

They say there's somebody out there for everyone, and doppelgangers add an entirely new dimension to that phrase. As many fans have noted, certain celebrities already possess uncanny similarities to each other, and celebrities, at least in this instance, are just like us. Collected here are random people who look exactly like each other, noticed the resemblance, and took a picture.

Sure, celebrity doppelgangers are cool, but they pale in comparison to these spontaneous real life look-a-like run-ins. Are they incredibly cool examples of random coincidence or are they proof of glitches in the matrix? That's up to you to decide, but it's kind of cool knowing that we could all bump into our doppelganger some day too.

The K2 Peak is one of the highest mountain peaks and many mountain climbers have died attempting the climb. Though not as tall as Mt.Everest, the K2 mountain is still a favorite among climbers, but is considered a killer among climbers. Mountain climbing deaths can happen due to the difficulty of ascent, avalanche, exhaustion, poor living conditions etc,. With more mountaineering adventures added every year, surprisingly, the number of deaths of mountain climbers on K2 has decreased over the years.

Fatal WRC racing accidents at races that have occurred since the inaugural season of the World Rally Championship in 1973 include several dozen, many of which are listed here. For various reasons, many have lost their lives doing their jobs and what they loved, driving WRC cars. Though not a complete list, this tally details the names of the drivers, the car they were driving at the time and the date of the fatal accidents.

WRC varies from other forms of auto racing such as IndyCar and ARCA in that races take place over three day periods on gravel, tarmac and even icy tracks.

Though safety precautions are in place per the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile, like other racing leagues accidents happen and deaths are an unfortunate result. Fortunately, each of these fatal crashes have shed more and more light on the safety of the sport and has led to improvements throughout the years.

The notable quotes gaffes of Al Sharpton, or Al Sharpton-isms, are mostly about race, rights and anything that bothers him, which really doesn't narrow things down, but it sure keeps his name in the headlines. Unlike other politicians, such as John McCain or Sarah Palin, Al Sharpton makes people laugh with his wit, which comes out when he's passionate about something, not because he does not know what he's talking about.

Though the Reverend Al Sharpton has made a career of sticking up for and speaking about what he believes in, his comments are not free of controversy. That's however what can be expected when brushing off a California governor as a silly stunt man or comparing tax cuts to mass suicides.

They may not always be politically correct, (some may be taken as racist or offensive), but notable quotes from Al Sharpton always tell it like it is, and that in itself is pretty darn notable as well. Check out this list of Famous al Sharpton quotes and tell us which ones you think are the best and worst. 
Al Sharpton-ism: Al Sharpton Quotes And Gaffes,

To Governor Dean...
"I wanted to say to Governor Dean, don't be hard on yourself about hooting and hollering. If I had spent the money you did and got 18 percent, I'd still be in Iowa hooting and hollering."
If I were president...
"If I were president, I would go in and say, 'We were wrong.' Tony Blair and George Bush had a meeting, acted as though it was a world summit. Two guys in a phone booth acted like the whole world had met."
We decided we'd ride this donkey as far as it would take us.
"It is true that Mr. Lincoln signed the emancipation Proclamation, after which there was a commitment to give 40 acres and a mule. That's where the argument, to this day, of reparations starts. We never got the 40 acres... We went all the way to Herbert Hoover, and we never got the 40 acres. We didn't get the mule. So we decided we'd ride this donkey as far as it would take us."
James Crow Jr., esquire
"We have defeated Jim Crow, but now we have to deal with his son, James Crow Jr., esquire.'"
It tastes good but it'll kill you.
"George Bush giving tax cuts is like Jim Jones giving Kool-Aid. It tastes good but it'll kill you."
It's better to be a new Democrat...
"I want to welcome him to our list of candidates. And don't be defensive about just joining the party. It's better to be a new Democrat that's a real Democrat than a lot of old Democrats up here that have been acting like Republicans all along."

--Welcoming Gen. Wesley Clark to the Democratic presidential race
That's like saying...
"That's like saying, 'I'm honest but I ain't never been around no money.'"

--After Howard Dean said he's not a racist but had never lived in a racially diverse community
If George Bush had selected the court in '54...
"I suggest to you tonight that if George Bush had selected the court in '54, Clarence Thomas would have never got to law school."
Mr. Bush will not be in a Sharpton administration...
"Mr. Bush will not be, in a Sharpton administration, the head of missing persons. He can't find bin Laden. We don't know if Hussein is living or dead, and we can't find the weapons of mass destruction."
I was born in deficit spending.
"I understand deficit spending. I was born in deficit spending."

Here are some of the Notable Salutatorians and Valedictorians from High Schools and Colleges. This list highlights numerous successful professionals, such as First Lady Michelle Obama, Jimmy Carter, Albert Einstein, Carrie Underwood and Hillary Rodham Clinton, as well as various contemporary and upcoming talented achievers graduated most recently, such as Anisha Shenai (Danvers High School), Caitlin Duffy (Northfield HS), Eric Duquette (Smithfield HS), Lauren Gentry (Wakulla HS), Sarah Collins (Sunlake HS), Reynolds twins (Satsuma HS), and Wilson twins (Madison HS), who are honored as Valedictorians and Salutatorians by their High Schools. The links to their Graduation Speeches are included, where available, in the description section. The top graduate with higher grades is referred to as Valedictorian, whereas the honor of becoming a Salutatorian requires the highest overall GPA as well as the mastery on effective public speaking, excellent language skills and strength in extracurricular activities. Princeton University chooses a "Latin Salutatorian" based on the ability to write and deliver a speech to the audience in that language. The title "Salutatorian" comes from the salutatorian's traditional role as the first speaker at the graduation ceremony, delivering the salutatory speech.The Valedictorian usually delivers the "valedictory" address (i.e. bidding farewell and good bye) while the Salutatorian delivers the "salutatory" address (i.e. expressing welcome to the new world) to fellow students, teachers and families in the audience.

<![CDATA[The Best Female Video Game Journalists]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-female-video-game-journalists-v1/devon-ashby
With the advent of the #GamerGate debate, plenty of people lately have felt the need to start talking loudly and brusquely about the "proper role" of women in video game culture. Should female gamers have a voice in game culture at all, since gaming is supposedly a medium intended primarily for dudes?
The big controversy begins when women in video gaming want to actually talk (or write) about their experiences playing or developing games. A surprising number of people seem to think women talking and writing about video games represents an epic, gargantuan threat to the very soul of the games industry, because what could be possibly be more stifling to the creative purity of the Assassin's Creed franchise than pressuring Ubisoft into sticking a female NPC in Unity?

At the end of the day, women in the games industry who promote, discuss, and analyze video games are some of gaming's biggest advocates and most compelling contributors, and they're a diverse group. Below is just a sampling of some of the most visible, unique and hard-hitting female contributors to the public conversation about video games and video game culture.

The Best Female Video Game Journalists,

Felicia Day
Who she is: As the creator of Geek & Sundry, Felicia Day is a respected and beloved commentator on all facets of nerd culture, including, but not limited to, gaming. She humorously describes herself as a video game addict, and her channel features reviews, play-throughs, panel discussions, and even occasional sketch comedy routines about game culture.

She also runs a blog, is the creator of the popular web series The Guild, and has appeared on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supernatural.

Why she's awesome: What's most infectious about Felicia is her unapologetic enthusiasm for video games as a medium, and her lack of fear about coming across as a total dork. Her style of coverage is all about celebrating how emotional and exciting digital media can be.
Day wrote one of the most outspoken letters regarding Gamergate. She is the proverbial leader of the pack when it comes to being an outspoken voice in the gaming community, often debunking many “female gamer” stereotypes, trying to bring ALL people together who enjoy video games.
Jane McGonigal
Whe she is: Jane McGonigal is the author of the book Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World. She's a game developer and general future tech enthusiast interested in the creative, intellectual, and sociospiritual future of interactive media. She has given three TED talks on the subject of gaming that have been collectively watched over 9 million times. 

Why she's awesome: As a game designer, McGonigal's work emphasizes the use of virtual landscapes and styles of interaction to help solve real-world problems. She is one of the most quoted and referenced individuals on gaming's impact on modern culture. 
Jessica Chobot
Who she is: Jessica Chobot was the first ever host of the Daily Fix, IGN's original daily news program on the video game industry. It was, in essence, the first video game news program of its kind on the web. Since 2013, she's been the main host of Nerdist News where she covers a range of geeky topics.

Why she's awesome: Chobot played a journalist in Mass Effect 3, one of the most popular (if not controversial) games of 2012. She also wrote the popular survival horror game Daylight and knows more about video games than most humans. 
Naomi Kyle
Who she is: Comic and video game nerd Naomi Kyle is the host and writer of IGN's popular series The Daily Fix and Daily Fix Top 5. She has hosted several other original series, most notably The Next Game Boss, which gave aspiring game designers the chance to earn money to create their own video games. In addition to hosting, Kyle also produces awesome video game commentaries and original features.  

Why she's awesome: Naomi is one of the most recognizable video game personalities on the face of the planet. She's the indelible face of IGN and delivers breaking industry news to gamers on a daily basis.
Danielle Riendeau
Who she is: Danielle Riendeau is a senior reviewer for Polygon. She has a very strong critical perspective, but some of her best work for the site is filed under "opinion."

Why she's awesome: Check out this amazing piece about the much coveted and buzzed-about game Alien: Isolation where she ties together the lineage of the game's central character with the feminist themes of Ridley Scott's original 1979 film. Her approach gives video games the respect they deserve, elevates the medium and ends of making the whole industry look good. Pulling out meaty literary themes to discuss while mainstream media tries to completely dismiss video games as a worthwhile part of culture? Awesome. 

Bonus:  her last name is pronounced like "Nintendo" which is pretty fun!

Andrea Rene
Who she is: Andrea Rene appears on Gamestop TV and is a host for GameTrailers. She also runs a blog, keeps fans up-to-date on new industry happenings via her Twitter stream, and contributes a host of freelance video content to various game-related sites, including GameFly, Machinima, and The Escapist. She's currently the Senior Producer and host for the digital and tech oriented entertainment company, DEFY Media.

Why she's awesome: She brings a charming a personal touch to the kind of hosting that usually comes off as stale. Her following speaks for herself. 

Meg Turney
Who she is: Meg Turney first got her angel wings in the geek community as a well-known cosplayer, but has since branched out heavily into online media hosting and news reporting. She's hosted weekly gaming and tech-related series for Nerdist News and CraveOnline, and currently works full-time for the Internet culture channel Rooster Teeth.

Why she's awesome: She has a particularly deep knowledge about Indy games and she tends not to report on something unless she really knows her sh*t. And she usually knows her sh*t. 

Tracey Lien
Who she is: Formerly of Polygon and now with the L.A. Times, Tracey Lien generated a debate around the gaming industry with her groundbreaking piece "No Girls Allowed" and her coverage on the rise of Twitch "When Watching Beats Playing."

Why she's awesome: Tracey does traditional game reviews and criticism, but she also does a lot of on-the-ground reporting (like this article on game developers in the Middle East). She's great at breaking down current events related to gaming culture – like this article about that time the people who own Candy Crush Saga tried to trademark the word "candy."

Tracey is one of the most reputable voices in both the gaming and tech fields. She continues to make strong contributions to the ongoing public conversation about women in games, and the cultural impact of technology.

Carolyn Petit
Who she is: Carolyn Petit is a transgender woman who made waves when she first got hired on as a game reviewer for GameSpot.

Why she's awesome: She made even bigger waves when she published what was, overall, an extremely positive review of Grand Theft Auto V, which nonetheless awarded the game only 9/10 stars. This not-utterly-fawning assessment of the game caused a small faction of totally insane people to launch a smear campaign against Petit, writing embittered emails to her bosses and posting angry rants on YouTube demanding she be fired. Again, 9/10 stars.

Petit unfortunately was let go from GameSpot eventually due to a round of layoffs, not because of her actual writing. She does still continue to be awesome on Twitter, however.

Maddy Myers
Who she is: Maddy Myers is a game critic for Paste Magazine where she contributes feature articles, reviews, and a regular column called "Hyper Mode."

Why she's awesome: Myers is great at combining a traditional critical approach with a solid understanding of game mechanics, making her reviews insightful, funny, and full of depth. Her non-review posts address issues of media bias, censorship, and socio-cultural issues affecting gamers.

These are the best second bananas in wrestling history. It's a story about the guys that could just never quite get out of the shadow of their tag team partner or the other guys in their stable. Again, many of these men were/are tremendously skilled WWE Superstars or WCW wrestlers, but they just could never quite... you know. ... Never quite. They just could never get over that imaginary hill into superstardom.

Did we forget anybody? Probably. They're second bananas. Add them now!

From Marty Janetty to Arn Anderson to Matt Hardy and beyond, who do you think is wrestlings best "other guy?" Cast your votes now or be a second banana forever!

<![CDATA[The Worst NFL Team Owners of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/worst-nfl-team-owners-of-all-time/ranker-nfl
The worst NFL team owners of all time are those men and women who were the best at being the worst professional football team owners ever. These National Football League owners alienated fans, meddled in important team decisions and up and moved beloved teams out from under the cities that adored them. If there was a guide to how to own an NFL team, these examples would be in the "don't do this" category. Best NFL team owners of all time these are not.

For many of these bad NFL team owners, it was one big event or decision that put them among the worst owners ever. Take Art Modell for example. Despite promising that he'd never do such a thing, his choice to move his Cleveland Browns franchise to Baltimore, Maryland, right under the nose of everyone involved, is still seen as one of the most offensive actions done by an NFL team owner ever. But Modell isn't the only owner to move a team with others like Rams owner Georgia Frontiere and Colts owner Robert Irsay also disappointing fans with sudden team relocations.

In other cases, it was a career full of meddling with team business and disappointing team performance that earned the owners places on this list. Few can deny that the Oakland Raiders were abysmal at best under the ownership of Al Davis or that Dan Synder will be remembered for doing more harm than good at the helm of the Washington Redskins.

So between the current NFL team owners who disappoint fans on a regular basis to those historically awful owners who made unpopular decisions that are still not forgotten, these men and women will be remembered as the worst NFL team owners of all time.
The Worst NFL Team Owners of All Time,

Al Davis
Oakland Raiders
Art Modell
Cleveland Browns/Baltimore Ravens
Daniel Snyder
Washington Redskins
Denise DeBartolo York
San Francisco 49ers
Jerry Jones
Dallas Cowboys
Matt Millen
Detroit Lions (Led to 0-16 season)

Mike Brown
Cincinnati Bengals
Randy Lerner
Cleveland Browns
Robert Irsay
Baltimore/Indianapolis Colts
Spanos Family
Los Angeles Chargers
