Some celebrities worked their way up from humble beginnings to earn worldwide fame and seven-figure bank accounts.

Others were born with show business connections, but they still had to struggle and work hard to avoid flipping burgers to chip away at crippling student loan debt.

But there's another, slightly less common subset of celebrities - those born into such privilege they could've never worked a day in their lives and their posh lifestyles would still make us jealous.

Lady Gaga
Gaga grew up in Manhattan's posh Upper East Side. She is the daughter of a successful Internet entrepreneur.

Yes, these are the stars who lived the good life from day one, the celebs born with a silver spoon in their mouth and tailored Yves-Saint Laurent diapers on their tuchis.

Some may not surprise you (Gwyneth Paltrow didn't become that snooty overnight) while others you may not have known about (Rooney Mara's family owns two NFL teams?!) 

But whether they flaunt their classy pasts or try to hide them, these stars all have one thing in common: they were richer than most folks in Hollywood before they learned to talk.

Someday, the following list will not be necessary.

Someday, celebrities will not need to make any sort of official announcement regarding their sexuality because, quite simply, no one will care and society will be fully accepting of all orientations.

But that day hasn't arrived yet, for reasons explained so eloquently by Ellen Page when she came out as a lesbian on Friday:

Perhaps these stars can make a difference. Maybe they can positively influence others struggling with their sexual identity, using their public platform to push for tolerance.

So, with all that in mind, we join many in Hollywood in saluting Page and other famous folks who are very out and awfully proud:

Ellen Page made a major announcement in early 2014: She's gay. We applaud her for it.

Anderson Cooper tweeted a topless photo of his friend and New Year's Eve co-host Kathy Griffin, joking that it may be what she wears this evening.

The CNN personality joked that the comedienne "just sent me this photo of her outfit for New Year's Eve. She's kidding, right? Please tell me she is."

We can't speak to that ... but this is what you get when you send Anderson Cooper selfies with no top on. Instant Internet infamy. Mental note made.

If she's gonna get naked tonight on CNN, where she's hosted New Year's Eve live with Cooper since 2007, Griffin will be braving harsh conditions.

She's been Tweeting about the inevitably cold weather she'll be facing in Times Square from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. ET: "Let the nipple freezing begin!"

The unfiltered Griffin has proven to be the perfect comedic foil for the straight-laced Cooper, who is actually a terrific journalist in the proper setting.

Alec Baldwin admitted to using an anti-gay slur - but not the one he's been accused of saying - and only after GLAAD told him "c--ksucker" counts.

Or so he claims. The outspoken star then allegedly called one paparazzo a "c--ksucking f-g" outside his NYC apartment building Thursday afternoon.

Baldwin denied using the f-bomb on Twitter, dubiously insisting he said "fathead" instead ... then later coming clean, but only about the word before it.

"Rich Ferraro from @glaad informs me that c'sucker is an anti-gay epithet," he tweeted. "In which case I apologize and will retire it from my vocabulary."

This is the second time that Alec Baldwin has come under fire for using an anti-gay slur, and like the last time, CNN's Anderson Cooper is incredulous.

Alec Baldwin is done with Twitter. And it also sounds like he's done with talking to Anderson Cooper.

In June, the former 30 Rock star blasted Daily Mail reporter George Stark for writing that Baldwin's wife was texting during the funeral for James Gandolfini.

As part of his Twitter rant, Baldwin went off on Stark as a "queen" and said the reporter would enjoy the sensation of a foot up his rear end.

After the actor made an apology, the issue seemed to go away quickly, which stunned and upset Cooper, one of the most prominent gay men in Hollywood.

Alec Baldwin going off on a reporter is not unusual.

It's become more of a norm for this actor than hosting Saturday Night Live.

But Baldwin took his rage to a disturbing extreme last week when he blasted Daily Mail reporter George Stark for allegations the writer made about Baldwin's wife.

The Emmy winner has since apologized for the homophobic nature of his remarks, but Anderson Cooper has still raised an interesting question regarding Baldwin, an outspoken liberal.

How would you like to wake up to the bluest eyes on television?

With Matt Lauer receiving more criticism than ever this week for the firing of Ann Curry - a New York article states their personal feud led to Curry's ousting - Deadline reports that Anderson Cooper was recently approached to replace Lauer as lead anchor of Today.

HOWEVER, Cooper balked when he learned Lauer was never contacted about his meeting with the network.

He may not have come out of the closet until last summer, but Anderson Cooper tells The Huffington Post in a new interview that he's never questioned his sexuality, not even when "I was a little kid."

"I can't remember a time when I wasn't aware of it, even before I knew what it was or the name of it," Cooper says.

Moreover, the CNN host - who faced oral sex simulation from Kathy Griffin on New Year's Eve - think "being gay is a blessing" and he "couldn't be more proud" of his preference.

What's more awkward than Kathy Griffin in a bra on live television?

Kathy Griffin simulating oral sex on Anderson Cooper during the duo's New Year's Eve coverage?

But that's exactly what CNN viewers were stuck watching Monday night, as the comedian attempted to make things as awkward as possible for her co-host throughout that network's broadcast.

"You’re scaring me,” Cooper said shortly after midnight, as Griffin kept referring to his "Christmas present." "This is getting to be the night bad things happen.”

Yes, a man who has covered tragedies in Rwanda, Lebanon and around the world was frightened by Kathy Griffin. And for good reason. Watch the vide now:

The Silver Fox strikes again!

During an interview with Judd Apatow, Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd from This is 40, Anderson Cooper got into a conversation with Rudd about the actor's affection for pickles.

After a bit of juice was squirted, the host jumped in with a joke made all the more funny by Anderson's gay admission in July.

Watch now to see what we mean:
