Hollywood: The Land of Tireless Opportunity
August 17, 2005

One of the sexiest stars in Hollywood is returning to her roots.

Supermodel Christy Turlington helped launched the famous tag line "Maybe she's born with it" for Maybelline in the 90s, and now she's starring in a new campaign for Maybelline New York.

Christy is rejoining the company as a spokesperson targeting woman over 35, and she told us it's a great homecoming: "I grew up with the brand since '91and even before that as a teenager."

And with ageless beauty like that, it's like you never left the scene Christy!

Meanwhile, "Extra's" very own Carlos Diaz hit the Vegas Strip, where he found out Caesar's Palace is on the lookout for a few good men.

To celebrate the Vegas landmark's 40th anniversary, "Extra," GQ" and Caesar's Palace are teaming up to find a modern day Greek God.

But it won't be possible to crown a new Caesar without your help! You can cast your vote right here on our website.

From Vegas tradition to one of Hollywood's newest starlets, Emma Roberts is taking Tinseltown by storm with roles in the upcoming "Nancy Drew" and her hit Nickelodeon show "Unfabulous."

But now, Hollywood's teen queen is teaming up with Band-Aid to launch the first ever Stick with It Awards, a contest celebrating kids who have overcome obstacles in their lives.

"You write an essay of 200 words or less, and you write of how you stuck with something," Roberts said. "And the most original and creative essay will win a grand prize."

Meanwhile, "Extra" caught "RV" star Kristin Chenoweth taking a family portrait with her Maltese pooch. "I don't have any kids, so she's my baby," Kristin said.

"Extra" was with the actress and her adorable pup, Maddie, as they posed for Jim Dratfield of "Petography" who has shot famous pet lovers like Jennifer Aniston, Lara Flynn Boyle and Barbara Walters.

You can check out Jim's new book of canine shots, "A Dog for All Seasons," when it hits stores this fall.

And finally, "Extra" was on the set with Burt Reynolds, Eddie Griffin and Jerome Bettis, who also recruited boxer Oscar de la Hoya to join the fun in their new Miller Lite "Man Law" commercial.

"I was sitting on my couch watching TV," Reynolds confessed, "and I said to myself, ‘Those are the funniest commercials ever… how can I be in one?'"
