Princess Diana - Big Head
During the Live Aid concert in 1986, organizer Bob Geldof found himself showing a group, including Prince Charles, Princess Diana and a TV camera crew, around backstage. At one point, Geldof took the group into a room to look at a map of Africa. "A kid said to the Princess, 'Your head's much bigger than it looks on the telly,'" he later recalled. "'Don't worry,' she responded, laughing. There's nothing in it.'"

Young Kate Hudson - childhood productions
"I always wanted to perform," Kate Hudson once recalled. Indeed, she got an early start in childhood productions with her brother, actor Oliver Hudson: "We'd put on plays since I was little. I begged for a part. I would tell my brother, 'Oliver, please, you can kill me in your play. Just cast me!'"

Gridiron Club, DC
Al Franken And Amy Klobuchar Tell Ted Cruz A Ted Cruz Joke
Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar once wrote a joke about humorless Texas Senator Ted Cruz for a press dinner at the Gridiron Club. "It was soon after the Carnival Cruise had gone out to sea," Al Franken later recalled, "and the engine died and all the electricity went out and it was stuck out there for like 10 days and was known as the 'poop cruise' because nothing [no toilets] worked and… stuff was floating by you… "So she wrote this joke, which is: 'When most people think of a bad cruise, they think of Carnival; we think of Ted.' … So before the gridiron, I see Amy going over to Chuck Schumer, and then I see her going over someone ...

David Blaine: Cheesy Stunt
David once spent 62 hours entombed in ice in Times Square as "the world's ONLY LIVING ICE CUBE." Though many were impressed with the stunt, rival magician Noah Kelly was not among them. While sitting in the bath one day, Kelly had a "Eureka!" moment. "I was thinking how cheesy [David's stunt] was," he recalled, "and I thought I could do it surrounded by cheese." Sure enough, in March 2003, Kelly and his laptop were encased in 16 giant blocks of cheese in an English mall. The cheese? Cathedral City's aged cheddar: "This is an endurance test and I hope to test my body," Kelly courageously announced. "I'm not going to wimp out and use a mild cheese!" [Kelly, a ...

How Russell Hitchcock Met His Wife
Russell Hitchcock of Air Supply was literally miles high when he met his bride, Paula Fulmer, a flight attendant. "We met on a plane," Hitchcock later recalled. "When she asked me what I did for a living, I said, 'Air Supply.' She shoved an oxygen mask in my face." * After walking down the aisle at their wedding, Hitchcock quipped, "In show business, it pays to have someone who can show you where the exits are."

Blenheim Palace
Toby Young - Driving With Supermodels
While working at Vanity Fair magazine, Toby Young was put in charge of a shoot—"The Blueblood Beauties"—featuring four British supermodels at Blenheim Palace. As he recalls in his book The Sound Of No Hands Clapping: After the shoot they were supposed to be travelling back to London in a minibus but I offered them a lift in the Jag I'd hired courtesy of Vanity Fair and they all leapt in the back. For the next ninety minutes I found myself cooped up with Iris Palmer, Honor Fraser, Jodie Kidd and Jasmine Guinness, four of the best looking girls in Blighty. It doesn't get any better than this, I thought, as we sped towards London on the M40. For one ...

Oh Michael, Don't Try To Be Funny
Incredibly, Mike Myers, the youngest of three boys, was considered the least comical growing up. His mother was particularly skeptical of his career aspirations. "'Oh Michael, don't try to be funny... Do you know how there's funny people?'" he once recalled her asking. "'Well you're not one of them... Would all the funny Myers boys take one step forward? Not so fast, Michael...'" Mike later recalled the first time he managed to make "the house" laugh (at 11, after years of trying) as one of the greatest moments of his life. ["Austin Powers was born out of trying to celebrate my father's life," Myers once recalled. "My father's favorites were mine—Peter Sellers, Monty Python, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore... ...

Luke Evans: Celebrity Hairdresser
Welsh actor Luke Evans: "A friend of mine used to run a small boutique hotel in London and one day he called me up—I wasn't working, I was unemployed many, many years ago—and he said, 'Do you know a hair stylist that can come to the hotel this evening? Because we have a guest that wants to go out. She has a ball gown. She's going out with her husband. She needs someone to style her hair.' And I was like, 'I can do that.' He was like, 'What!?' I went, 'No, no, no, I can cut hair. I've been able to cut hair forever. I don't even need to cut it, I just need to style it. It's fine. ...
