Actor Robby Benson initially followed Oscar winner Rod Steiger's advice and kept news of his heart problems a secret due to fears his poor health might ruin his career.

Rocker Meat Loaf was so "infatuated" with his BAT OUT OF HELL III singer KARLA DeVITO, he once tried to turn her into a TV star.
The burly singer admits he has always had "incredible chemistry" with DeVito after meeting her a decade ago, but didn't want to break up her marriage to actor/singer Robby Benson.
He says, "When we first went out on tour, I was really infatuated with Karla and I had to get over that. She's fantastic.
"I was trying to do a sitcom with her and Robby about 1998 and (TV network executives at) CBS turned us down."

Though it's still good, pop this Special Edition DVD into your player and you're instantly greeted with a crash of noise. Beauty lets you know right from the start that it is not a subtle film, full of bluster and fire and singing and talking everything. (And everything talking at the top of its lungs.)
