Nick Krause (Mark Davis/Getty Images)If you saw the 2011 Oscar-winning movie "The Descendants" — and who didn't? — then you remember 20-year-old Nick Krause's character Sid, a slacker who unintentionally provides some comic relief in an often somber story about a man (George Clooney) trying to hold his family together after his wife is seriously injured in a boating accident. Sid is the boyfriend of Clooney's on-screen daughter, played by Shailene Woodley of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," who ends up getting punched in the face in one memorable scene. This summer, Krause (pronounced "Kr-ow-zee") appears in Nickelodeon's new Nick at Nite show, "Hollywood Heights," about a high school student ("One Life to Live's" Brittany Underwood) trying to navigate the music industry. "Hollywood Heights," which is based on the Mexican telenovela "Alcanzar una Estrella," premieres a new episode every weeknight through October. Krause, who hails from Austin, Texas, says one of the reasons he signed onto the show is that it's "something a lot of people haven't seen before." The actor recently filled out omg!'s Crush Questionnaire. Check out his answers!Read More »from Meet ‘Hollywood Heights’ star Nick Krause

Lance Bass (David Livingston/Getty Images)When the music stops, the big money a boy band makes during its prime can all go "Bye Bye Bye." Former *NSYNC member Lance Bass, 33, experienced that firsthand when his phenomenally successful group took a break that ended up being a breakup in 2002. So when TMZ cameras caught him leaving Katsuya sushi restaurant in L.A. Monday night, he was happy to offer some financial advice to Harry Styles, a member of the uber-hot British boy band One Direction. Styles, 18, was recently seen cruising the streets of Beverly Hills in a convertible Ferrari California, which costs about $200,000. When asked whether or not the ride was a wise buy, Bass replied: "It's a terrible investment at this stage. Save your money! Save your money!" he told the website. "Invest in something that'll make you money." As of Tuesday afternoon, Bass will be happy to know that Styles' rep tells TMZ that the car was only a rental.Read More »from *NSYNC’s Lance Bass to One Direction’s Harry Styles: ‘Save your money!’
Stewart ShiningToday, 25-year-old Shay Mitchell is part of the tight-knit cast of ABC Family's "Pretty Little Liars," along with Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, and Lucy Hale. But back in high school, she often dealt with ... less friendly girls who made her life a nightmare. "Growing up, I wish I hadn't tried so hard to fit in," she tells Seventeen magazine in a new interview.

In fact, the native of Toronto and Vancouver says that because she was bullied, before she became an actress she wanted to be a counselor and work with kids. "I've been through the worst of high school. And I want to motivate people to live the best life that they can, because we're only here for one life." Fortunately for fans, that didn't work out!Read More »from What Shay Mitchell looks for in a guy
