Zooey Deschanel, Barbra Streisand, Nicolas Cage... when common names become unique.
Keira Knightley has always baffled the world with her first name's unique spelling, but as it turns out, rather than it being creative license on the part of her parents, it was a simple spelling mistake that less than impressed her father.
Keira Knightley has done well despite the difficult start her name had
In an interview with Elle magazine, the 29-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star explained that she was supposed to be named after the Russian figure skater Kiera Ivanova but her mother got the spelling wrong when she went to register the birth. Apparently, this didn't go down too well with Mr Knightley.
The 40 year-old actress will return to the network for a guest appearance in a Christmas-themed episode.

Sofia Vergara is easily the highest paid star in television, earning $37 million last year.
Who said cutthroat corridors of U.S television was a man's world? Sofia Vergara has proved that the era of the disgustingly high-paid leading man (Laurie, Sheen) may well be over, by not only topping the highest paid TV actress list for a tired consecutive , but taking the top-spot overall.

The actress earned $37 million last year, that's some $11 million more than the top-earning TV actor Ashton Kutcher. The Colombian-born star earns a reported $325,000 per episode for 'Modern Family' - way off the reported $1 million per episode deal that Kaley Cuoco signed on 'The Big Bang Theory' - but Vergara's earnings come from endorsements and licensing deals with Diet Pepsi, CoverGirl, Head & Shoulders, AT&T and Synthroid. As Forbes note, the actress is also the co-founder of Latin World Entertainment - a huge multi-million dollar episode.

A collection of rare audition tapes of some of a our favourite Hollywood actors has been released and it makes for interesting viewing!
TV and film superstars often don’t seem like real people. They live on a screen in our front room, or occasionally on a bigger screen in a bigger room if it’s a special occasion. They perform something funny, moving, sad or uplifting and then we, as the viewing public, go back to our daily lives and they continue to be these things that we can’t really associate with. Do they eat, drink, fight, burp, play and laugh like everyone else? Who can tell when the only time we see them is pouting on a red carpet in beautiful designer clothes that make them look unrealistically sensational?
Hollywood stars like Leonardo Dicaprio have to apply for their job just like all of his fans
While the everyday lifestyle of the average acting superstar may be but mere guesswork for us mortals, what we can conclude is that they have to interview for jobs just as much as the next person - and they have to do it on camera.

Tonight, we'll find out how Ted and "The Mother" met.
There'll be How I Met Your Mother fans with knots in their stomach all day today as they wait anxiously for the final episode of the hit CBS sitcom. It has been a long road for the comedy show which by tonight will have run its course over nine seasons. When "HIMYM" debuted back in the fall of 2005, no one could have predicted the consistent success and comedic legacy of such a simple premise: a man in 2030 telling his two kids the tale of how he met their mother.
'How I Met Your Mother' Prepares For Its Final Episode This Evening.
An entire series told in flashbacks, HIMYM only revealed the identity of "the mother" at the end of series eight, played by Cristin Milioti. Certain signals from her interaction with Ted (Josh Radnor) lead fans to believe that the mother actually is dead in 2030, and that's why the dad is reminiscing with his kids. This rumour was quickly played down by the cast but shows a keenness amongst fans for a "legen-dary" twist to top of their favourite show.

[Spoilers] The recent troubling 'HIMYM' rumours have made fans anxious for a happy finale.
In two episode's time we'll have the last ever episode of How I Met Your Mother. It has been a long and undulating road for the hit CBS sitcom but the upcoming 31st March will hopefully give the series' devoted fans the finale they deserve.
The HIMYM team's final outing will cap nine seasons, which is a pretty impressive feat: "I feel grateful that we all managed to get to the finish line. It's not every show that gets to run nine years and end on its own terms," says co-creator Carter Bays, who, has helped guide the show to its long-planned ending.

'How I Met Your Mother' is approaching its conclusion.
Some questions were answered on this week's How I Met Your Mother and plenty more were asked. Will Marshall and Lily pick up and leave for Italy. Will Robin and Barney finally get married? Now that the viewers know who the mother is, will the writing team be cruel enough to kill her off? And the most important one: why should we still care about these characters?
Alyson Hanningan Is As Loveable As Ever
Not that the cast aren't worth watching for - Alyson Hannigan and NPH are just as lovable as ever, while Cobie Smulders' Robin continues to kick all kinds of tail. But judging by last night's episode and the few before it, it looks like the writing team is just about ready to pack it in.

Sarah Michelle Gellar recently tweeted a pic of her and old co-star, David Boreanaz, what are the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer up to in 2014?
We practically fell off our chair with excitement when we saw that Buffy and Angel, sorry, Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz have recently been reunited! Sarah tweeted a pic of her and her old co-star/onscreen soulmate (Buffy & Angel 4eva), also posing with Emily Deschanel, David’s current co-star.
Sarah played Buffy from 1997 until 2003
We’d love to believe that this meant a new Buffy movie in the works, but we don’t want to get our hopes up too much. Especially since Buffy creator/genius Joss Whedon is currently writing and directing the next Avengers movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is due to come out in 2015. We understand you probably have your hands full, but Joss, if you’re out there, #BringBackBuffy!
The cast of hit comedy TV series 'How I Met Your Mother' arrive separately at the New York studios for 'The Late Show With David Letterman'.
The sitcom’s creators apologise after “racist” storyline set in China.
An apology has been sent out by the team behind How I Met Your Mother, sorry for the offence that last night's episode 'Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra' caused. The episode, which was partly set in China, was accused of being racist by some fans who used the Twitter hashtag "#HowIMetYourRacism" to criticise a scene in which the cast were shown with make-up, costumes and accents that some deemed offensive.
The 'HIMYM' Team Disappointed Many Of Their Fans With Themes Of Racial Appropriation.
The episode sees Jason Segel's character Marshall travel to China, where he met characters from Kung Fu films which were played by regular cast members Jash Radnor, Alyson Hannigan and Cobie Smulders. The three were accused of using "yellowface," which is the practice of wearing yellow face paint to make oneself seem more East Asian.
