You'd be hard pressed to find an employee who's never pilfered a pen or roll of TP from the office supply closet, and the same goes for movie stars... Though their workplace wonders are infinitely more interesting. Take the stars of "The Twilight Saga," for instance, who stopped by for a chat during our two-hour Comic-Con livestream on Thursday. When a fan tweet asked whether they'd taken anything from set, it inspired some interesting answers.
"I'm such a rule follower, and I couldn't possibly steal anything even if I wanted to," Nikki Reed said. But that's not the end of the story. Stay tuned...

Forbes magazine recently released their list of the highest-paid celebrities under 30—or as I call it, a list of people whose bank accounts I'd like to pilfer.
There's a few Crush favorites (hi, "Twilight" leads!) among the music stars and actors who've made this year's countdown. No. 1 on the list right now? It's none other than songstress Taylor Swift, who Forbes estimates made $57 million over the last year from her albums, concerts and spokesperson gigs (such as CoverGirl). Even if I actually knew how to sing and play instruments and write songs like Taylor, I can't ever imagine ever receiving a paycheck of that magnitude.

"Magic Mike " hit theaters this weekend, chiseled abs ablazing. I made sure I was there opening day with some close friends: me, myself and I.
I had planned on going with a few gal pals to see Channing Tatum and the other men of Xquisite shake their money makers, however, I realized last minute that the only day I could go was Friday, when none of my cohorts were available. Not wanting to dash my plans, I just took myself on a date to the stripper flick.
But was seeing a movie about exotic dancers by myself something I should be embarrassed about? I was a bit worried about judgmental side glances leaving me unnerved throughout the movie. Then I remembered: automated ticket kiosks! Social obstacle conquered, I discreetly bought my ticket.
We’ve already started planning our Fourth of July celebrations next week. Burgers? Check. Fireworks? Check. Red, white and blue cookies? Check, check, check. However, some of our friends from Canada get to celebrate their country’s birthday a few days earlier than ours, on July 1. In honor of Canada’s 145th birthday this weekend, we give you Hollywood Crush’s Seven Pop-Culture Things We Love A-boot Canada.
Carly Rae Jepsen
We just met her, and this is crazy, but Canadian crooner Carly Rae Jepsen brought us the song of the summer, "Call Me Maybe." Her new duet with Owl City, "Good Time," dropped this week and it’s just as catchy and dance-inducing as her breakout hit. Before she came into our lives we missed her so bad; thank you, Canada, for Carly Rae Jepsen!
Forget the L.A. club scene or New York City streets; on Saturday night, the best place to spot young Hollywood's finest was Englewood, New Jersey! A roll call of A-list celebs—including Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Andrew Garfield and Zac Efron—all made their way to the Garden State this weekend as guests at the wedding of Hollywood producer Kevin Turen and actress Evelina Oboza. (In other words, don't go road-tripping out to the Jerz in the hopes of doing some star-spotting; this was a one-time deal.)
According to the report from People, all stars in attendance kept it classy and stayed off the radar, leaving the spotlight to the bride and groom (although Robert was spotted taking a turn as DJ, and Zac hit the dance floor when it came time to hora!).
What is Twitter for if not to share adorbs photos of your feisty four-legged friends? "Rock of Ages" starlet Julianne Hough did just that today, Tweeting a pic of her pooches in totally stylin' shades. (I mean, those white frames set off their coats so nicely!)
In between canine style sessions, the actress is keeping busy on the set of her upcoming Nicholas Sparks adaptation, "Safe Haven." She stars alongside Josh Duhamel as a young woman who arrives in a small North Carolina town and stirs suspicion about her past. The actress has been spotted sporting a brunette wig for the role, proving she looks good in basically everything.
While we sit in an aggressively air-conditioned office, whiling away a (finally!) sunny Friday afternoon, there are more than a few stars making us green with envy over their vacation escapades. One such Twitterer is "Vampire Diaries" actor Matt Davis, who has been sending humorous dispatches from his Austrian holiday.
Is it wrong that we're picturing Matt in a pair of lederhosen RIGHT NOW? (And is it wrong that we kind of like it?)

Is there anything Emma Stone can't do? Not only does she continually steal scenes from costars like Ryan Gosling (and Ryan Gosling’s Abs), but she manages to look smokin’ hot as a redhead and a blonde—no easy feat. Turns out the first-ever MTV Trailblazer is harboring yet another talent: a pretty darn accurate imitation of British beau Andrew Garfield's accent. We caught up with the "Amazing Spider-Man" star to find out how her British accent measures up to Andrew’s American one.
"I’ve been working on it," Emma admitted. "I do it all the time, I’ve been working on it all the time, and it’s so annoying."
Truth: The more dancing in any given movie, the more likely it is that there's a secret cache of hilarious failed takes in which the moves just didn't quite come off. Faceplants, falls, wardrobe malfunctions—the unintentional slapstick goes on and on. And in "Rock of Ages," which involves a whole lotta singing, dancing and shaking of moneymakers to hair-band hits, there's just got to be a whole other movie's worth of mess-ups hidden away somewhere, just waiting to entertain us...right, Diego Boneta and Julianne Hough?
"Actually, there is a blooper reel," Julianne confirmed. "It'll be on the DVD, I'm sure."
And from all the botched scenes, the actress recalled one particularly memorable moment (that we're hoping makes the cut on the blooper real, because it sounds epic):
It doesn't matter whether you've read all
five three books in the series from cover to cover and then some; even the most die-hard "Hunger Games" fans will be shocked and amazed when they feast their eyeballs on this brand-new, After Hours clip. Because here, for the first time in public, are some Panem citizens you might have missed: the movie's SECRET LOST TRIBUTES. Secret tributes like Chris Colfer, Chloe Moretz, ?uestlove, Max Greenfield and Jean-Claude Van Damme—who might not have gotten the screen time they deserved when the film hit theaters, but whose commitment to all things Hunger Gamey was nonetheless unassailable!
...Sorry, what's that? These people were never anywhere near "The Hunger Games"? Well, if that's true, then maybe you should explain how Max Greenfield got so good at balloon-animal survival techniques, huh? YEAH. THAT'S WHAT WE THOUGHT.
