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.

Does size really matter? That's the eternal question. Some pack a mighty punch into a small package. Others show their strength by standing more erect than the rest.

We're talking about really tall celebrities here, sheesh. Get your minds out of the gutter!

It's hard to tell who's tall or short on the big screen, as directors, camera angles and other tricks keep up the illusion that everyone in Hollywood is descended from Amazons.

While it's true that there are some very short celebrities out there, it's equally true that some of them are very, very above average, at least when it comes to height.

Take a look at 25 super tall celebrities who aren't even pro athletes!

Khloe Kardashian
Khloe Kardashian's 5'10" height does nothing to dispel the rumors that she's not really Robert Kardashian's daughter since her sisters barely break 5'.

Get ready to feel poor!

Parade magazine has unveiled its annual list of the top earners in Hollywood from 2013 and it turns out (we hope you're sitting down for this) some of these people make a whole lot of money!

Miley Cyrus - $76.5 million

If you thought the music industry was dead, think again. Miley Cyrus tops the list of female earners, having pulled in an estimated $76.5 million. That oughta buy Miley enough pot and new dogs to get her through the next six months or so. 

Topping the list for men as the year's overall highest earner is famed cross-dresser and guy white people pretend they've heard of - Tyler Perry. Perry pulled in a cool $78 million last year on the strength of his films, television shows, stage plays and books.

Watch out Oprah - sounds like Madea's going for the Ultimate Multi-Media Mogul crown!

As movies go, Tyler Perry's Temptation may be beyond terrible, but a small-time screenwriter is suing its creator/director for ganking the idea from him.

Yes, someone really wants a writing credit for this.

Kim in Temptation

William James says Perry stole his idea for Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor, which did rake in $49 million despite epically bad reviews.

See our Temptation review right here on THG.

Anyway, James says the plot of the film, which somehow co-starred Kim Kardashian, is similar to a movie called Lovers Kill which he wrote in 2009.

Oh, Tyler Perry's Temptation, where to begin? You were written in a single night, right? On Red Bulls and Adderall? Or during a fever dream with not just a Telenovela, but the worst Telenovela - whatever that would be - playing on double-speed in the background?

Please tell me I’m getting close.

That Temptation was made is confounding. That it was made by one of the most successful and recognizable filmmakers alive is terrifying.

Tyler Perry sent Oprah a bouquet of flowers for her 59th birthday Tuesday. Nice.

Apparently it wasn't a small one, because she injured her back picking them up.

Perry posted a mea culpa on Facebook, under the title, "I Feel So Bad."

"I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion. Well, I sent one to Oprah for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up," he writes.

Kim Kardashian's new movie (yes, movie) has an official poster.

The reality show and sex tape star is headed for the silver screen, and just posted the first movie poster for Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.

Check out the tantalizing tease below ...

The poster isn't much to write home about visually, but symbolically is a different story. Note the black snake in the shape of an apple and a woman's profile.

The man who penned Diary of a Mad Black Woman could likely now write a sequel: Website Posting of a Seething Producer.

Tyler Perry took to the Internet yesterday to express outrage over a report that claimed Bobbi Kristina Brown stormed off the set of Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse, the entertainment mogul's latest TBS sitcom.

Bobbi Kristina Brown at Billboard Music Awards

"I woke up this morning to my publicist calling me saying that there were reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of For Better Or Worse. NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!!" Perry wrote. "There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finished taping the season."

Perry was referring to a Radar Online story that claimed Whitney Houston's only child "couldn't handle doing the show right now" because she was still mourning her mother.

That is simply a lie, Perry wrote, acknowledging there were "tough" times given the very tough circumstances, but "grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time."

He concluded: "PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!! AND SHE IS A BABY!!! Please stop the lies and give this child some room to breathe and grieve. IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD WOULND'T YOU WANT THAT?"

TV viewers will see Bobbi Kristina when For Better Or Worse debuts in July, while she will also be featured on a Lifetime reality show that centering around her family.

A four-alarm fire ripped through Tyler Perry's Atlanta studio lot, the home base for his various TV and movie projects, the Atlanta Police Department said Tuesday.

Thankfully, no injuries have been reported in the blaze.

Per Atlanta's Channel 2 Action News, firefighters managed to extinguish the flames by around 10 p.m. but continued to battle various hot spots into the night.

At least one building on Perry's 30-acre lot had partially collapsed.

According to reports, among the structures within the 200,000-square-foot Tyler Perry Studios are a 400-seat theater and numerous sets and sound stages.

There's no word yet on the full extent of the damage or what may have caused the blaze. The Madea's Witness Protection director opened the lot in 2008.

In 2011, Kim Kardashian was in town for her role in The Marriage Counselor, and Perry hosted a March fundraiser for President Barack Obama at the studio.

Perry has also been in the news lately for his comments on the Trayvon Martin case and racial profiling, saying he personally has been profiled due to race.

Fresh off his most acclaimed film in Good Deeds, actor-director Tyler Perry and his iconic creation Madea return in his latest project, Madea’s Witness Protection.

The story actually does not follow Madea into Witness Protection, but rather Wall Street banker (Eugene Levy) whose family moves into Madea's neighborhood.

The trailer below gives us a quick glimpse of this new character sitting beside Tyler Perry's on a plane. Madea’s Witness Protection lands in theaters June 29.
