Was anyone ever as young as Christina Applegate and Brad Pitt at the 1989 VMAs? As cute as this couple is they were apparently not so hot for each other. While Pitt is super duper hot, Applegate ditched him during the festivities for another guy, leaving Pitt quiver dating apps to go stag for the rest of the show.
Applegate has admitted that she ditched Pitt in the middle of their date, but she’s never said who she left him for, preferring to stay tight lipped about what had to be a pretty embarrassing moment for young actor. However, Sebastian Bach of Skid Row claims that he’s the guy Applegate hooked up with at the VMAs. He alleges:

“Blonde” Brigitte Bardot — 1950s
Even today Brigitte Bardot is considered to be one of the most beautiful women on the world. She was only a teenager when she had her first acting role, and just into her 20s when she starred in And God Created Woman, the Roger Vadim directed sexual drama that created Bardot’s nymphette character that’s followed her into her 80s.
When the film was released audiences and critics were drawn to Bardot’s sexuality, with many reviews stating that she was the only reason to see the movie. Bosley Crowther of the New York Times wrote:
Bardot moves herself in a fashion that fully accentuates her charms. She is undeniably a creation of superlative craftsmanship. But that’s the extent of the transcendence, for there is nothing sublime about the script of this completely single-minded little picture. We can’t recommend this little item as a sample of the best in Gallic films. It is clumsily put together and rather bizarrely played. There is nothing more than sultry fervor in the performance of Mlle. Bardot.
If there’s any proof to the age old adage that musicians get chicks regardless of how attractive they are it’s the marriage of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley. We’re not trying to body shame Billy Joel or anything, its just that these two look like they’re from completely different planets.
Joel and Brinkley were married for a little over a decade, but finally called it quits in 1995. Even though their marriage ended their friendship remained intact, and Brinkley says that the two have been known to sing Christmas carols together over the holidays. She told People :
Many years after our divorce, Billy would still come to my house for the Christmas singalong and play the piano, and all our friends would come over and sing Christmas carols. Singalongs are one of my favorite things to do. And you know that’s what makes everybody happy.
Helen Mirren in Herostratus – 1967
Mostly understood at its time, this critique of the postwar idealism found in the youth of England is a sharp look at the way that idealism can degenerate into neurotic self-gratification.
Inspired by the story of a man who bored down the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus to achieve immortal fame, Herostratus is the story of Max, a young poet who proposes to a marketing firm that they use his suicide as a marketing spectacle. However his plan to protest modern society goes all wrong and his reactionary gesture is interpreted as a sick way to seek celebrity.
