Trivia: Hrithik’s nickname is Duggu.
He has two thumbs on his right hand that are grown together. As a child, Hrithik fought hard to overcome a stammering problem. He worked for many years on the sets of his father Rakesh Roshan’s films to learn the business from scratch. Hrithik has been documenting his daily life for many years by taking pictures and putting them in scrapbooks.
With the looks of a Greek God and an enticing combination of star quality, Hrithik Roshan comes across as a complete gentleman. He skyrocketed to fame with his acting debut, Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai. His twinkling green eyes, winsome smile, and a lean, chiselled body ensure that Hrithik has a huge fan following.
Roshan was born in Mumbai to a Punjabi Hindu family of cinema personalities. His father, actor and director Rakesh Roshan, is the son of music director Roshan; while his mother, Pinky, is the daughter of producer and director J. Om Prakash. Hrithik has an elder sister, Sunaina. His uncle Rajesh Roshan is a famous music director. As a child, Roshan attended the Bombay Scottish School. He later attended Sydenham College, where graduated in Commerce.
He got a taste of Bollywood as a child, when he appeared in the films Aasha (1980), Aapke Deewane (1980) and Bhagwan Dada (1986). But it was in the year 2000 that Hrithik made his debut as the leading man in the film Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai, opposite the debutante actress, Amisha Patel. The film was one of the biggest box-office successes of that year. Later that year, Roshan starred in Fiza (2000). Although the film did poorly at the box-office, Hrithik’s performance was praised. His last release that year was Mission Kashmir, where he starred with Sanjay Dutt and Preity Zinta.
Yaadein was his first release in 2001, followed by the melodrama, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, which did extremely well at the box office, becoming the second-highest grossing film of 2001 and the then biggest overseas hit.
Hrithik had an unsuccessful year in 2002 when all three of his releases – Mujhse Dosti Karoge!, Na Tum Jaano Na Hum and Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage – were declared flops.
In 2003, Hrithik made a comeback with the science-fiction film Koi… Mil Gaya, which saw Hrithik play a mentally challenged young man. The film was the highest grosser of the year. Lakshya was Roshan’s only release in 2004; the film did not do well at the box office. However, Hrithik’s performance was praised by critics.
Roshan took a two-year break from acting before resurfacing with the superhero film Krrish, a sequel to his 2003 film Koi… Mil Gaya which released in June 2006. The film was a major box office success. This was followed by the action flick Dhoom 2, the sequel to Dhoom, wherein he played a negative character. His pairing with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the film was liked by the audiences. He got back with Aishwarya for another film, Ashutosh Gowariker’s Jodhaa Akbar (2008).
Roshan then appeared in Luck By Chance (2009), in which he made a guest appearance. The following year, he was seen in Anurag Basu’s Kites along with Mexican actress Bárbara Mori and Kangna Ranaut. The film failed to do well at the box office after taking a huge start and was eventually declared a flop. He next acted in Guzaarish opposite Aishwarya Rai. Upon release, the Hrithik’s portrayal of a quadriplegic patient, Ethan Mascarenhas, received rave reviews.
Hrithik Roshan next film is Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara opposite Katrina Kaif. The actor is also all set to commence the shooting for Karan Johar’s remake of Agneepath, where he is paired opposite Priyanka Chopra.

5' 6" (1.68 m)
Though most famous for her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight saga, Kristen Stewart has been a working actor since her early years in Los Angeles, California. Her parents, John Stewart and Jules Mann-Stewart, both work in film and television. Her mother is Australian. The family includes three boys, her older brother Cameron Stewart, and two adopted brothers Dana and Taylor.
After a talent scout caught her grade school performance in a Christmas play at the age of eight, she appeared on television in a few small roles. Her first significant role came when she was cast as Sam Jennings in the Safety of Objects (2001). Soon after that, she starred alongside Jodie Foster in the hit drama, Panic Room (2002) and was nominated for a Young Artist Award.
Praised for her Panic Room performance, she went on to join the cast of Cold Creek Manor (2003) as the daughter of Dennis Quaid and Sharon Stone. Though the film did not do well at the box office, she received another nomination for a Young Artist Award. After appearing in a handful of movies and a Showtime movie called Speak (2004), Stewart was cast in the role of a teenage singer living in a commune in Sean Penn's Into the Wild (2007), a critically acclaimed biopic. A third Young Artist Award nomination resulted in a win for this role. She also appeared in Mary Stuart Masterson's The Cake Eaters (2007) that same year.
Just 18, Stewart took on the starring role in Twilight (2008/I) opposite Robert Pattinson who plays the vampire lead, Edward Cullen. Based on a series of the same name written by Stephanie Meyer, the novel already had a huge following and the film opened to fans anxious to see the vampire romance brought to life. Awarded the MTV Movie Award for Best Female Performance, Stewart's turn as Bella continued in the sequels New Moon (2009) and Eclipse (2010/I). The final installments of the series start filming in late 2010.
Rocketed into stardom with the Twilight films, Stewart has continually shrunk from the spotlight. She's also taken on a number of indie projects such as Adventure land (2009) (filmed prior to the Twilight series) and Welcome to the Riley’s (2010). And she took on the daunting task of playing rocker Joan Jett in Floria Sigismund’s The Runaways (2010) alongside Dakota Fanning. Though most critics heaped praised on Fanning for her poignant performance as Cherie Currie, Stewart also received praise for her acting and musical performances.

Date of Birth: September 12, 1972
English born, Sydenham, London raised, Statham is the second son of a dancer and a lounge singer. Although he had artistic talent running through his veins, he instead focused on his athletic abilities at the high dive. His diving abilities were so impressive that he joined the British Olympic team in 1988 in Seoul, Korea. After 10 years in the National Diving Squad, a talent agent led him to the modeling industry.
His modeling career doubled for his work on the street as a salesman of stolen and fake goods. "I was a sort of fly pitcher street corner con man who sold jewellery and perfume out of a briefcase for many years." Interestingly enough, this is how he met director Guy Ritchie who ended up launching his career in the Indie hit, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Guy had been convinced by Statham to buy his worthless merchandise, and when he tried to return it, Statham was so graciously inflexible that Ritchie hired him. "When he met me, he had written Lock Stock and had a part that was pretty much bang on to me. He wanted an authentic kind of character, and that was me, because they don't teach you that kind of thing in drama school."
Following his work in the film playing Bacon, Ritchie rehired him to play Turkish in the hit film Snatch. With little experience and no formal training, Statham depended on Ritchie and his fellow actors to give him a helping hand at times. "They let you know you are doing the right thing and Guy lets you know you are doing the right thing and you develop a confidence and it grows from there. By the time I did Snatch, I kind of knew what I was doing. I mean, I understood about hitting my cue, remembering my lines, and I got the feeling that nothing can stop you."
By the start of the new millennium, Statham had done enough work to pave his way into superstardom. Along with the success of Snatch, he made his American film debut as a British drug dealer in Turn It Up (2000), landed a starring role in John Carpenter's sci-fi thriller Ghosts of Mars (2001) and joined the cast of The Italian Job (2003).
Why is He famous
Jason Statham can kick your ass. A no-frills, all-muscle English action star who is best-known for starring in over-the-top escapist film franchises like The Transporter and Crank and ensemble hits like The Italian Job and Snatch. He's a tough guy who delivers exactly as advertised when the menu calls for big physical stunts and loads of ass kicking.
An Oscar-winning actor he is not. An unapologetic tough guy and engaging screen presence, he most certainly is. As one of the few British action stars to make it big in America in movies like Cellular and Death Race, Jason Statham looks to continue his reign of kicking ass and taking names as one of the all-star action heroes in Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables.

Justin Timberlake (Hollywood Cutiest boy)
Justin Randall Timberlake (born January 31, 1981) is an American pop musician and actor. He achieved early fame when he appeared as a contestant on Star Search, and went on to star in the Disney Channel television series The New Mickey Mouse Club, where he met future band mate JC Chasez. Timberlake became famous in the late 1990s as the lead singer of the boy band 'N Sync, whose launch was financed by Lou Pearlman,
In 2002, he released his debut solo album, Justified, which sold more than 7 million copies worldwide. The album was a commercial success, spawning the hits "Cry Me a River" and "Rock Your Body". Timberlake continued his success with his second solo album, Future Sex/Love Sounds (2006), debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, and produced the US number-one hit singles "Sexy Back", "My Love", and "What Goes Around... Comes Around".
Timberlake has won six Grammy Awards as well as two Emmy Awards, and his first two albums made him one of the most commercially successful singers in the world, each selling in excess of 7 million copies. He also has an acting career, while his other ventures include record label Tennman Records, fashion label William Rast, and the restaurants Destiny and Southern Hospitality.
In late 1999, Timberlake made his acting debut in the Disney Channel movie Model Behavior. He played Jason Sharpe, a model who falls in love with a waitress after mistaking her for another model. It was released on March 12, 2000.
As a member of 'N Sync, Timberlake developed into a major celebrity in his own right in addition to achieving respect as a musician, since he was the writer or co-writer of all three singles from Celebrity. The rise of his own stardom and the general decline in the popularity of boy bands led to the dissolution of 'N Sync. Band member Lance Bass has stated that he believes the group is finished, and is openly critical of Timberlake's actions in his memoir Out of Sync. On the other hand, Chris Kirkpatrick remarked in August 2008 that the five remain friends, and he believed a reunion was possible:he repeated that opinion in October 2009. In September 2008, Bass also made conciliatory comments.

In August 2002, after months of recording Justified, his debut solo album, Timberlake performed at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards. He premiered his first single, "Like I Love You", a sparse dance track produced by The Neptunes.The song reached #11 on the Billboard Hot 100. Following the single, Timberlake released Justified on November 5, 2002.The album sold fewer copies than previous 'N Sync efforts. It debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 album chart, selling 439,000 copies in its first week of release. It eventually went on to sell more than three million copies in the U.S. and more than seven million copies worldwide.The album also received critical acclaim, thanks to its heavy R&B influence provided by hip-hop producers The Neptunes and Timbaland.It spun off hits throughout late 2002 and 2003, including the top ten singles "Cry Me a River" and "Rock Your Body".Timberlake supported the album by co-headlining the Justified/Stripped Tour with Christina Aguilera in the summer of 2003. At the end of the year, Timberlake recorded a song entitled "I'm Lovin' It". It was used by McDonald's as the theme to its "I'm Lovin' It" campaign. The deal with McDonald's earned Timberlake an estimated $6 million. A tour entitled Justified and Lovin' It Live was included with the deal as well.Timberlake was featured on Nelly's song, "Work It", which was remixed and included on Nelly's 2003 remix album.
In February 2004, during the halftime show of the Super Bowl XXXVIII broadcast on the CBS television network, Timberlake performed with Janet Jackson before a television audience of more than 140 million viewers. At the end of the performance, as the song drew to a close, Timberlake tore off a part of Jackson's black leather costume in a "costume reveal" meant to accompany a portion of the song lyrics. According to CBS, "both Jackson and Timberlake had confirmed they planned it 'independently and clandestinely' without informing anyone." Part of the costume detached, and Jackson's breast was briefly exposed.Timberlake apologized for the incident, stating he was "sorry that anyone was offended by the wardrobe malfunction during the halftime performance of the Super Bowl...."The phrase "wardrobe malfunction" has since been used by the media to refer to the incident and has entered pop culture. As a result of the controversy, Timberlake and Jackson were threatened with exclusion from the 2004 Grammy Awards unless they agreed to apologize on screen at the event.Timberlake attended and issued a scripted apology when accepting the first of two Grammy Awards he received that night (Best Pop Vocal Album for Justified and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Cry Me a River").He had also been nominated for Album of the Year for Justified, Record of the Year for "Cry Me a River", and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "Where Is the Love?" with The Black Eyed Peas.In 2004 American Idol judge Simon Cowell described Timberlake in People Magazine as "just some white kid who's tried to act black over the last several years".

Brad Pitt ( Hollywood Sexiest Hunk)
Glasgow is star attraction in Brad Pitt blockbuster
Brangelina SHOW: Look out for Hollywood super couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie appearing in a city center near you for a two-week run in August. Picture: Getty Images
18 Jun 2011
IT will be a dramatic tale of zombies, war and heroes – and this £80 million film will bring not only millions of pounds to the Glasgow economy, but one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Last night it was confirmed Brad Pitt will be filming his new blockbuster movie World War Z in the city for two weeks in August. The film, based on the 2006 book by Max Brooks, will see Pitt play the central role of a fictional Brooks, who is piecing together what happened during a calamitous outbreak of zombie attacks, set in the near future.
The film’s producers will also shoot scenes in Hungary and Malta. It is believed Glasgow’s city center, especially George Square and St Vincent Street, will stand in for Philadelphia and include at least one major battle scene. Made by Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment company and Paramount, the film’s script is said to move away from the more luridly violent tradition of zombie movies, and is being compared to more serious action films such as Children of Men and The Borne Identity. One online film site said its solemn script could even put the serious take on the traditionally gory genre of zombie movies in the running for Academy Award contention. It has been written by J Michael Straczynski and will be directed by Marc Forster, who also directed The Kite Runner and Quantum of Solace.
The appearance of Pitt, joined by co-stars Murielle Eons and Ed Harris will spark intense media interest in the actor’s presence in Scotland, where he could be joined by his partner, Angelina Jolie. The production will involve almost 1200 people on location in Glasgow during the second half of August, and the impact on the local economy is likely to be more than £2m, the city’s council said yesterday. It is understood filming will necessitate road closures and traffic diversions.

Actor & Actresses
An actor or actress (see terminology) is a person who acts in a dramatic production and who works in film, television, theatre, or radio in that capacity. The ancient Greek word for an "actor," ὑποκριτής (hypokrites), means literally "one who interprets"; in this sense, an actor is one who interprets a dramatic character.
The first recorded case of an actor performing took place in 534 BC (though the changes in calendar over the years make it hard to determine exactly) when the Greek performer Thespis stepped on to the stage at the Theatre Dionysus and became the first known person to speak words as a character in a play or story. Prior to Thespis' act, stories were only known to be told in song and dance and in third person narrative. In honour of Thespis,a 6th century B.C poet, actors are commonly called Thespians. Theatrical legend to this day maintains that Thespis exists as a mischievous spirit, and disasters in the theatre are sometimes blamed on his ghostly intervention.
Actors were traditionally not people of high status, and in the Early Middle Ages travelling acting troupes were often viewed with distrust. In many parts of Europe, actors could not even receive a Christian burial, and traditional beliefs of the region and time period held that this left any actor forever condemned. However, this negative perception was largely reversed in the 19th and 20th centuries as acting has become an honored and popular profession and art.
