John Travolta and James Gandolfini were more than just co-stars, they were also close friends.
The two had a long history of friendship, beginning with their families' friendship that blossomed in their shared home state of New Jersey.
In fact, John Travolta was the one who inspired James to start acting to begin with, as John explained:
"I was his inspiration to get into the business. He would see pictures of me on the wall from movies and decided he wanted to be an actor.”
We’re grateful James followed in John's footsteps and rose to become a cherished actor in the eyes and hearts of many.
James wasn’t only cherished for his acting roles, though. He was also an extremely kind soul, and was a shoulder to lean on for others in their times of need. Travolta talked about James’ support during the tragic death of his own son:
Matt Lauer clearly thinks very highly of his ex!
Ex-cohost, that is!!
Matt recently stopped by to chat with Howard Stern at his radio show, and it was a very juicy chat!
They discussed the TODAY show and his professional relationships with some of his co-hosts, especially focusing on his very first co-host — Katie Couric!
He revealed the following:
The saddest part of life is that we all must face death, as everyone around us is on the same path, with the same end. From enemies to those closest to us, nobody can escape it — and yet this unavoidable and universal constant remains one of the toughest experiences for us all. We feel for those who have lost loved ones, because someday we will too.
Stephen Colbert has just lost his mother, who he touchingly honored last night on The Colbert Report. Through his emotion and his stories, we get a sense of just not only how profound her passing was to those closest to her, but also how profound her 90+ years of life were as well.
Stephen might play a caricature on his show, but for the first few minutes of his returning episode he was as real as our closest friends. Watch a good man talk about his wonderful mother, and what she meant to everyone around her (above).
Things like these are always worth our time. Our hearts go out to Stephen and his family.
Despite the THRILLING ending between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, the one thing people couldn't stop talking about had NOTHING to do with the game!
It was all about Lebron James and his headband!
Late in the game, King James lost his signature headgear after driving hard to the hoop. But instead of throwing it back on, he ditched the sweaty band and not only did he play better, but he ended up leading his team to a crucial overtime victory!
So now the question is, will he be headband-less once again for Game 7?
Last time we caught Taylor Lautner and Marie Avgeropoulos on set, they were flying high in the sky with some serious leaping!
This time, the two took a break from soaring through the air and had some seated time in a car together.
They were in New York filming on the set of Tracers again, and we can’t help but notice that Taylor and Marie would make a GORGEOUS couple!! They look so good seated next to each other!
Sorry rumored luvah Maika Monroe!
We know, you’re probably thinking that a car scene is not nearly as inneresting as the jumping stunts from the last time. But they actually did jump some more!
You can view more jumps and car pics below!

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana may have been found guilty of tax evasion and sentenced to 20 months in prison on Wednesday, but since everything is better in Italy, they won't have to spend a single day behind bars!
According to Italian law, sentences that are less than two years usually don't have to be served, and are more like suspended sentences, but if the designers are found guilty of any criminal acts again during that time period, they will
