Some celebrities get famous - and that fame goes straight to their heads.

They forget all the little people they stepped on while climbing up the Hollywood ladder, turning into massive jackasses in the process. (Let's be real. There's a good chance they were jackasses before they got famous.)

Other celebrities, however, use their powers for good, doing good where they can. Take Ian Somerhalder, who uses his platform and stardom to raise awareness of causes near and dear to his heart, such as the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which helps find sources of green energy that are sustainable for all people.

But we're not just talking about those who are lending their star power to fundraising efforts for disasters large and small, though billions and billions have been raised through said efforts.

Today we're talking about stars like Amy Adams, who gave up her first class seat to a soldier; and Ryan Gosling, who quite literally saved a woman's life in New York City one day, proving he's got a hot body and a huge heart. 

Check out 7 celebrity acts of kindness and then go do something good for someone else. Pay it forward, y'all.

Mark Cuban is not backing down.

Speaking to Inc. magazine about the racist comment made by Donald Sterling over the past few weeks, along with the decision by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to ban the 80-year old for life, the Dallas Mavericks owner said the league is setting a dangerous precedent.

Does it really want to take action against executives for their words and thoughts?

"We're all prejudiced in one way or another," Cuban said. "If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it's late at night, I'm walking to the other side of the street.

"And if on that side of the street, there's a guy that has tattoos all over his face - white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere - I'm walking back to the other side of the street. "

Following the passing of the team's owner Ralph Wilson, Donald Trump expressed an interest in purchasing the NFL's Buffalo Bills.

Like most things the Donald is involved with, the potential deal is a case of Trump's ego gone wild, a fact that's not lost on fellow billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban.

When asked by TMZ about Trump's interest in the Bills Cuban pointed out that Trump isn't wealthy enough to purchase the team of his own and would need to assemble a group of investors in order to close the deal.

There are few things Trump hates more than the truth, so naturally, this undeniable fact threw him into a fit of rage.

"Mark Cuban is a lightweight who's net worth is a fraction of mine," the Celebrity Apprentice host fired back.

"By the way, I watched him play golf and he is a total non-athlete - zero clubhead speed. He lives vicariously through his basketball players."

I would imagine for billionaires insulting someone's golf game is like making a joke about their mother, so Trump is treading on dangerous ground here.

The collegiate career of Brittney Griner came to an end over the weekend when Louisville shocked Baylor in the Elite 8.

But not only does Robert Griffin III have Griner's back, Mark Cuban has given the 6'8" center a reason to turn her frown upside down: he may draft her to the NBA!

"If she is the best on the board, I will take her," the Mavericks owner said prior to last night's game against the Lakers. "I've thought about it already. Would I do it?"

"Right now, I'd lean toward yes, just to see if she can do it."

"You never know unless you give somebody a chance, and it's not like the likelihood of any late-50s draft pick has a good chance of making it."

Donald Trump. Mark Cuban. The Twitter war of the Billionaires is on!

The beef started with Cuban offering Trump $1 million to shave his head in a response to Trump's $5 million offer to President Obama to produce his college transcripts.

That was November, and the Smart Phone Smackdown has only intensified since. Last week on the Tonight Show, the Dallas Mavericks owner stoked the flames.

Cuban produced a letter he received from Trump in 2004, when his show The Benefactor, an obvious takeoff on Trump's The Apprentice, had just been canceled.

In that letter, Trump wrote to Cuban:
