They’ve also got quite a few facts on each of them. Did you know for instance that Jodie Foster was mauled by a lion?! Neither did I!

Daytime Emmys Preparty: Before They Were Movie Stars, They Were Soap Stars

This Sunday is a big day for daytime TV enthusiasts everywhere. The Daytime Emmys are here, and Sesame Street will be honored, Vanessa Williams will host and Tyra will probably wear an awesome weave. Obviously, soap operas are a big part of the Daytime Emmys, so we thought we'd get a little preparty going with a gallery of our favorite stars who started out in the soap trenches, like Eva Longoria Parker there to your left. (Don't worry about Eva, she's just sad because she eventually gets taken away to the mental hospital. But you know, she shouldn't go around faking her death in an elaborate plot to kill her former lover's first wife. So it's probably just punishment.) So give our...

Movie Stars' Kids

Not all relatives should show up at the same office everyday, and not everyone wants to get into the family business. Yet when the perks include fame, big paychecks, and glamorous premieres, the choice seems a little easier to make.

And since nepotism makes breaking into Hollywood not such "Risky Business," it's no surprise that kids like Tom Cruise's son, Connor, who's slated to star in the upcoming "Red Dawn" remake, are following in the footsteps of such other celebrity offspring as Rumer Willis, Jaden Smith, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Michael Douglas.

Classic Ten - Standup Comic Movie Stars

In Judd Apatow's third movie Funny People, the comedy world is a pretty complicated place. But a wise person once advised that the key to success in Hollywood is actually very simple: "Make 'em laugh, make 'em laugh, make 'em laugh." Maybe that's the reason why scores of stand-up comics have managed to make near-seamless transitions from the stage to the big screen. Even so, only a relative handful

Movie Stars For Emmy

Since the EMMYs have 2,741 categories, we only focus on two things: first, how our favorite shows did and second, which big screen stars other than La Pfeiffer (she's always there with her television kingpin husband) will show up. Which of them got nominated for their small screen sojourns whether longform or more movie-like?

Speaking of which...

Drew Barrymore on the set of Going the Distance

Yes, you, Drew. But you knew she knew (everyone knew) that her affecting work in Grey Gardens as "Little Edie" was going to make the grade. "Big Edie" Jessica Lange also won a nomination for the narrative feature based on -- but also sort of jumping off from and commenting on -- the famous beloved documentary of the same name. I hope to have an interview with their director here soon.

Before we get to the rest of the big screen folks, here's the nominees

Advice for Directors Married to Movie Stars

Kate Winslet tells People.com she had a "total meltdown" while her husband Sam Mendes was directing her in a sex scene with Leo DiCaprio for the upcoming Revolutionary Road. Apparently Mendes was giving her too many detailed instructions about where her hands should be and things like that. Admittedly, this is a small demographic, but just in case you happen to be a director married to a movie star, you can learn from Mendes' mistakes. Some rules to follow:

1) Make sure you give your wife's co-star some instructions too, so she doesn't feel like she's the only one doing things wrong.

2) Don't be afraid to let her improvise a little; a little extra film footage is much cheaper than a divorce.

3) Never, ever, ever tell her her posterior looks fat out of those jeans.
