Though they look like the perfect young couple in love, this was the one and only time Elvis and Sophia Loren met! The actress came across Presley eating his lunch in the Paramount Studios cafeteria and had to introduce herself. She sat on his lap, tussled his hair, and gave him a kiss. Elvis was one of Loren’s biggest fans, and said that he had seen every one of her movies.
The Sweeden born actress, Ann Margaret might be best known for her roles in Viva Las Vegas, Carnal Knowledge, and The Cincinnati Kid but she also has a music career, has been nominated for an Academy Award twice, has 2 Grammys, a SAG Award, and 6 Emmys.

Here’s Len Dawson smoking a cigarette – a Fresca – during the first ever Super Bowl halftime. Times were different back in 1967, and it wasn’t strange for an athlete to smoke.

Catherine Bach was a child star as her first role was one of the kids in The Sound of Music. Then she got her big break when she found out that they were looking for a Dolly Parton type for a new tv series called The Dukes of Hazzard, and the rest was history. And in this rare photo, we see Catherine Bach wearing pink, skimpy daisy dukes just like her character in the hit television series. Better than Jessica Simpson, right?
The lead singer and songwriter of the legendary band Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant, was slightly superstitious and inspired by folklore, both of which influenced her artistry and songwriting immensely. However, a bird flying into his hand during a packed live show? You cannot make this stuff up, and this is still one of the most talked-about photos of Plant ever.

Carrie Fisher was a Hollywood icon and an exceptional writer who was most famous for her role as Princess Leia in Star Wars. After the first film in the 1970s, Fisher reprised her role in six more movies in the series and became an international phenomenon. Despite much success, fame, and fortune, Carrie had her demons, one of them being her struggle with bipolar disorder. According to Fisher, her condition pushed her to self-medicate regularly to cope with everything and function. Carrie was one of the many big names we lost in 2016, and even her farewell was as unique as she was because her ashes were placed in a giant Prozac pill urn. What a legend.
