Are you ready to change the odds and stand up to cancer?

Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Kristen Bell and other young celebrities urge fans to do exactly that in the following public service announcement.

It was filmed in honor of Stand Up to Cancer, a telethon that will air on September 10 across all major networks and raise money to fight this deadly disease.

Aside from the aforementioned trio, those sending a helpful message below include: Andrew Garfield, Dakota Fanning, Logan Lerman, Jon Heder, Aubrey Plaza, Zachary Levi, Sofia Vassilieva and Olivia Munn.

Says producer Laura Ziskin:

“It is important for young people to be aware of the scope of the problem and the odds that they may face, both for their own future and for their loved ones. This piece is about how it is never too soon to take a stand against these devastating and epidemic diseases. Theirs may be the generation that gets us to the finish line."

Amen.

The cast of Dancing with the Stars misses her, but Julianne Hough is branching out into the world of country music, and quite successfully, we might add.

She'll also be starring as the lead in the remake of Footloose, if it ever gets made. Talk about a woman of many talents. And pretty easy on the eyes, too.

How will she fare in a fashion clash with Kristen Bell, though?

Julianne's dress was long, flowing and glamorous at last night's Academy of Country Music Awards, while the Gossip Girl narrator kept it short and sleek.

Earlier, we profiled Carrie Underwood and Lindsey Vonn. This style showdown may be even tougher to handicap. Who do you think looked better Sunday?

Kristen Bell is engaged to Dax Shepard, her rep has confirmed.

If How I Met Your Mother quotes have taught us anything, it's that every marriage has a "reacher" and a "settler." In this scenario, Dax Shepard is definitely the reacher.

No offense to Dax, but come on. Anyway.

Shepard proposed over the holidays and Bell debuted her ring on the red carpet of the Grammy Awards Sunday night. The couple has been together two years.

SHELL? KAX? This couple just works, even if nicknames do not.

The When in Rome actress and Gossip Girl narrator recently detailed what her perfect date night with Dax Shepard is like in November's issue of Women's Health.

"There is almost nothing, barring a natural disaster, that I would let eat into my time at home, playing Scrabble with Dax or talking to my girlfriends," she said.

Aww. Sounds like a cute relationship built to last.

Congratulations to Kristen and Dax!

Compared to what she normally wears - including on stage this very night - Rihanna's red carpet fashion at the American Music Awards was downright tame.

Still, the singer's origami-like black, white and gold dress drew raves from fashion critics. Also garnering praise (from us at least)? The lovely Kristen Bell.

In contrast to Rihanna, she keeps it very simple ... and why not when you're so darn cute. The actress and Gossip Girl narrator looked classically gorgeous.

Whose style do you like better? Vote below!

It's a fashion face-off of CW stars ... kind of.

Kristen Bell narrates, but is never seen on Gossip Girl, while Ashlee Simpson has joined the cast of the new Melrose Place. In any case, both have joined the ranks of trendy celebrity style with their latest fashion statements!

The actress, who also stars on Heroes, paired her 3.1 Phillip Lim tank top with khakis for an A/X party in L.A., while the alleged singer and sister of Jessica Simpson wore her tribal printed top for a day of family fun in Manhattan.

There's a lot to like about Kristen Bell.

  1. She narrates one of the best shows on TV as Gossip Girl
  2. She's one of the scant few bright spots on the erratic, wildly uneven, shark-jumping sci-fi fiasco we know as Heroes
  3. She was delightfully bitchy as the title character in Forgetting Sarah Marshall
  4. These outtakes from her photo shoot for Complex magazine
Ring Our Bell!

While the last series of Complex pics we posted were a bit more, um, XXX-rated (that's Aubrey O'Day for you), Kristen sizzles in relatively conservative glory.

Kristen Bell really is getting a piece of Kate Hudson's sloppy seconds.

We had heard the rumor about the former Veronica Mars star and current Heroes actress dating Dax Shepard, but we hadn't wanted to believe it. Seems like Bell, a certified cutie, could do better than a Jackass.

The Bell Ringer

Still, the couple looks awfully adorable in the photo below. Walking a dog together could do that to any pair, however. We'd have considered Dita Von Teese and Marilyn Mason cute back in the day if they'd be spotted with a puppy.

Kristen Bell, star of the upcoming comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, is dating Dax Shepard.
