Matt Damon’s full name is Matthew Paige Damon. Unless the A-list actor is a real-life Jason Bourne, that’s all there is to it.

In his interview for People’s 2010 Sexiest Man issue, Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder (Damon) detailed what he finds “sexiest” in another person. “You know, there’s a funny thing: I always call it ‘warm intellect,’” he explained. “You have people who are unbelievably intellectual, however they’re really cold. And then you have those people who are just sort of really warmly intellectual — people who are approachable but are just so intellectually stimulating. I find that very sexy.”
We have to assume his TVD co-star/off-screen girlfriend Nina Dobrev (Elena) possesses that magnetic quality. Back in September 2011, Ian gushed to Us Weekly, “[Nina] truly enjoys life. Her desire to experience and appreciate everything around her, and chuckle and enjoy it, is great.”
Excuse us as we go develop our “warm intellect” and zest for life. Nina, you’ve got competition coming!

When Ryan Gosling read the script for Fracture, the 2007 legal thriller he starred in opposite Anthony Hopkins, he had been living in a tent for two months. “It's a long story,” he told the Herald Sun. “I had spent a lot of time in a tent, and I read Fracture. [...] One day I’ll tell that story.”
That time has apparently never come, but we’re thankful for Anthony Hopkins’s talent and charisma, because they drew Ryan out of his tent. “I'm a huge fan and it was a huge opportunity for me to get to work with him,” Ryan explained. “I jumped at the opportunity.”
Yes — and then some.

Although James Franco dropped out of UCLA after his freshman year to pursue acting, he returned to finish his studies 10 years later, graduating with a degree in English in June 2008. He did so by cramming an inhuman amount of coursework into two years, while keeping his GPA above 3.5.
All about higher education, the actor/writer/director/painter now has more degrees than any of his Hollywood counterparts: He holds MFAs from Columbia University (in writing), NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts (in filmmaking), and Brooklyn College (in fiction writing), and he’s currently a PhD student in English at Yale and a student at the Rhode Island School of Design. He will enroll in the University of Houston’s doctoral program in literature and creative writing this fall.
“I love school,” he told People magazine. “I go to school because I love being around people who are interested in what I’m interested in and I’m having a great experience.”
That’s cool and all, but how in the hell does he find the time?

Anna Paquin (Sookie) doesn’t have a British accent; she has a New Zealand accent. Born in Canada, the actress and her family moved to New Zealand when she was 4. The True Blood star has since perfected an American accent, but she says she still falls into a Kiwi drawl with her mother — a native New Zealander — and other family members. “I do when I speak to my mother and my sister and anyone else in my family,” she tells Interview magazine. “I’m bilingual.”
Anna’s husband, co-star Stephen Moyer (Bill), is the one with the British accent. The 42-year-old actor grew up in Essex, England, and is an alum of the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
