Movies you didn't know were based on true stories

One of the wonderful things about fiction is that it invents a space in which anything can happen. Events that seem entirely illogical or far-fetched are at home and comfortable in a fictional narrative. Indeed the storylines of many books and films leave us thinking, "Imagine if that happened in real life!" But in some very surprising cases, it did. Check out this gallery for some films you'd never guess took inspiration from real-life events.

Stars who continued their careers after being 'canceled'

The term "canceled" has become so ubiquitous in today's age that it can be difficult to understand what it really means for a person, including how to criticize it or, more importantly, how to find redemption in it. Its roots lie in the traditional boycott, as a means for the public to practice its own version of justice and to teach figures with more power than them what is acceptable and what is not. At its worst, it's highly reactionary and can destroy someone's reputation. At best, it's an important learning lesson for its targets and for everyone witnessing it. One of the biggest criticisms of cancel culture is that it's too swift and severe, but it's interesting to see the various ways celebrities have dealt with being "canceled," some of which actually resulted in a smooth return to their careers. Some stars make enormous apology tours and equally enormous donations to the communities they offended. Other stars try to dispute the claims. Some others disappear for a little while and try to return quietly. Others go after cancel culture itself, and a few actually do attempt genuine redemption. Though many "canceled" celebs lose projects and tours at first, and experience immense mental duress from the public shaming, there are several stars who have come out of it all with their career intact, at least somewhat. Two months after the troubling defamation trial against ex Amber Heard, Johnny Depp is proving that he's ready to get back to work and get on the good side of the public eye. After coming out victorious in the trial, which revealed some serious allegations of abuse for both parties, the veteran actor has re-upped his lucrative contract with Dior, "a seven figure" agreement to return as the face of the men's fragrance Sauvage, E! News reports. This amount will be added to Depp's massive 2022 income statement as he's already been awarded US$10.4 million in damages from the lawsuit.

Celebrity couples who got secretly married

Celebrities have to deal with the public's prying eyes on a daily basis, and the press is frighteningly skilled at securing details of their private lives, so it always comes as a bit of a shock when something big happens in their lives that escapes our radar, like tying the knot. All eyes have been on Taika Waititi and Rita Ora's relationship ever since their public debut in April 2021, but they still managed to get married in secret, revealing only their wedding bands in some Instagram pictures. According to UK tabloid The Sun and backed up from E! Online, Rita Ora will now go by Rita Waititi-Ora. The ceremony itself was reportedly low-key, as a source said: “It was a really intimate ceremony and super-special for everyone there. Their nearest and dearest can see how madly in love they are." The source continued, "Despite living in the spotlight, Rita is determined to keep the relationship as private as possible and didn’t want to make a big song and dance about the wedding. A big, showbiz-style bash is planned to celebrate, but don’t expect to see it being flogged to the highest-bidding magazine." Despite the challenges, many famous faces have managed to hold a clandestine ceremony away from the eyes of the press.

Read up on these revealing celebrity memoirs

Celebrity news can be quite far from the truth, which is why many stars decide to take their stories into their own hands. That's certainly true for former child star Jennette McCurdy who rose to fame on the Nickelodeon show 'iCarly,' but in her new memoir she's pulling back the curtain on what early show business was really like. Titled provocatively, 'I'm Glad My Mom Died,' the memoir comes after years of working through her trauma and of course reveals shocking truths about the abuse she suffered at the hands of her mother, who died in 2013. But the memoir also touches on everything from the dark side of early fame, the eating disorders she developed, being sexualized and given alcohol while a minor on 'iCarly,' the jealousy she felt towards Ariana Grande on 'Sam & Cat,' and why she ultimately quit acting. It's a bold work, and one Nickelodeon perhaps never wanted to come out as McCurdy wrote that the network offered her US$300,000 to to "'never talk publicly about your experience at Nickelodeon,'" but fortunately she turned it down all those years ago. Penning a memoir can be a vulnerable and enlightening experience, and it can also stir up controversy over what really happened. Click through to see the must-read celebrity memoirs.

Over the years there have been TV shows, websites, and YouTube channels dedicated to pointing out the hilarious mistakes that directors left in their movies, such as the car that appears in the background of a scene in 'Braveheart'...

The most shocking lies ever told by celebrities

Actors open up about getting naked on camera

Nudity on camera is a complex topic. While some actors and actresses have no problem baring it all on set, others refuse to do so. Is it art or is it exploitation, and where exactly do you draw the line? How far should an actor need to go when playing a character? These and many other questions pop into mind when we think about shooting naked scenes. Amanda Seyfried knows her boundaries now, but she didn't back when she was starting out in the industry. Making her on-screen debut as a teenager in the early 2000s was difficult alone, but it was also a time before proper standards were in place. Speaking with Porter magazine, the actress admitted that while she came out of it “pretty unscathed,” she did have to some uncomfortable situations. “Being 19, walking around without my underwear on—like, are you kidding me? How did I let that happen?” she explained. “Oh, I know why: I was 19 and I didn’t want to upset anybody, and I wanted to keep my job. That’s why.” Thankfully now she has the confidence she needed back to get herself out of those situations, feeling "a respect level that I have never felt so fully around me,” which is not because of her critical acclaim, she says, but rather "because I’m 36 years old, and I know who the f—k I am.” Browse through the following gallery and see what Sweeney and some of Hollywood's biggest stars have to say about the topic.

The most epic celebrity feuds of all time

Feuds are surprisingly common in the world of celebrities. From actors who can't stand working together, to rappers who take constant potshots at each other in their songs, there's no doubt that these stars can hold a serious grudge. With that many big egos in a relatively small community, it's bound to happen. That's especially the case with the monstrous ego of Kanye "Ye" West, who has been stirring a nearly one-sided feud with Pete Davidson ever since he was romantically linked to Kim Kardashian. Now it's been revealed that West's public attacks on Davidson have had the 'Saturday Night Live' alum going to trauma therapy since April, E! News reports. From rapping about beating "Pete Davidson's a--" in his music, calling him numerous hurtful names on social media, and sharing a since-deleted Instagram post of a fake New York Times front page that read, "Skete Davidson Dead at Age 28," just days after Davidson and Kardashian had split, there is no further explanation necessary for why this would affect the comedian's mental health. Following the death headline, a source told E! News that Kim was "upset" and that "She is not ok with this type of behavior and won't tolerate her loved ones being treated like this. She has asked numerous times for him to take down the post. She will always protect Pete." Click on to discover more of the most epic and bizarre celebrity feuds of all time.
