Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez - Waiver Blooper
In 2002, Jennifer Lopez rented a house in Malibu and flew her parents from New York to meet Ben Affleck. Though the pair behaved well in front of the parents, they were reportedly "all over each other any chance they got." Fortunately for the cooing couple, the catering staff had been forced to sign waivers preventing them from sharing anything they saw with the press. Fortunately for the tabloids, Ben and Jen forgot to go around after the party and collect the signed waivers.

When Hunters Left Chocolate As Bait For Bears
In 2003, the Washington Post reported that hunters in North Carolina were leaving 2,000-pound blocks of milk chocolate in the woods as bait for bears.

Larry David - You're Not Special
Larry David: "I was raised to think that I couldn't do anything. 'Don't get your hopes up ok?' [laughs] I remember one time I was asked in front of my mother, you know, what I might want to be. I said, 'Gee, I like sports. Maybe I'd like to be a sports announcer.' She goes, 'You're not special. You're not going to be a sports announcer.' She wanted me to be a mailman. That was her dream."

Maggie Grace - Pranking Ian Somerhalder
While filming a kissing scene one day, Maggie Grace pranked "Lost" co-star Ian Somerhalder. It was an incident Somerhalder won't soon forget: During the kiss, Grace slipped him the tongue... and dumped a load of garlic and onion in his mouth! Somerhalder got his revenge in a restaurant some time later, by smearing ice cream pie on his co-star's face. * Somerhalder and Grace reportedly dated after getting killed off the hit show in 2006. They never officially confirmed their romance, though Maggie said in August 2006: "Ian's great, I adore him, although I'm only 22 – far too young to even think about having a serious relationship."
