James Wharton recently published, Out In The Army: My Life as a Gay Soldier, which tells how in 2008,  Prince Harry saved him from a homophobic attack from other servicemen. Harry's like, ONE good deed away from making me do something important irrational like friend him on Facebook or something brilliant ridiculous like that.

John Malkovich rescued a bleeding man from Ohio in Toronto. I'd say John Malkovich probably never thought he'd do something like that, but every time I doubt John Malkovich, I get pleasantly surprised. So... I guess I'm suggesting that he's good in a crisis because he can see it coming... because he's psychic. Just a theory.

Samuel L. Jackson has released a recorded monologue a promise he made as part of a contest he held to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. When he learned the donations to the association reached $175,000, he celebrated with this beauty:

John Rich, country singer and former member of the band Lonestar performed a sold-out show for St. Jude's Children Hospital.

The UK and Ireland One Direction performances will mean a lot to cancer research. The viral boy band has decided to donate their ticket sales to Stand Up To Cancer. Pinch me, I'm swooning.

Charo has surfaced!! From what, I'm not sure! I just haven't seen her in a long time and I'm excited!! And guess what, she's totally NOT INTO bull fighting. In fact, she hates it. Because she's a caring person AND an iconic guitarist/singer/half-ponytail wearer. Way to go, chica.

Whew! What a week for celebrity goodness. I'm floored, I'm stunned, I'm verklempt even! And how could we not be? The stars came out in full force this week to teach the world a thing or ten about being good to your fellow man, fan, and creature. Faith in humanity: RESTORED.
