Whether or not you follow the life-or-death exploits at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital, it's likely you're familiar with "House M.D." doc Olivia Wilde's, uh, body of work. Crowned "Hottest Woman Alive" by Maxim magazine earlier this year, the beautiful brunette's looks aren't the only thing sizzling. Along with making rounds as Dr. Remy "Thirteen" Hadley, Olivia's got several movie roles on the horizon, including the indie road trip flick "Fix" directed by her husband Tao Ruspoli (out next month) and next year's "Tron Legacy," the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic. In honor of Olivia's oh-so-hot career, we're making her the focus of this week's Star Gazing.

Unlike our last time Star-Gazing, Penn Badgley is one “Gossip Girl” star whose face we see very much of. The 23-year-old actor got his breakout role as one of the more prominent main characters on the show, the intelligent, Brooklyn-dwelling Dan Humphrey, who wins the heart of fallen queen bee Serena van der Woodsen. While Dan and Serena might not be together right now, his off-screen romance with Blake Lively is one sure to warm any “GG”-lover’s heart. And if that’s still not enough Penn for you, there’s always the very un-“Gossip Girl” thriller he is starring in, “The Stepfather,” which hits theaters this Friday.

Kristen Bell has made a career lately out of being heard and not seen. As the voice of the Upper East Side's most infamous blogger, Kristen gives us the juicy scoop on the scandalous lives of Manhattan's elite on The CW drama "Gossip Girl." And you'll likely recognize her crystal clear vocals in the upcoming animated adventure "Astro Boy," as Cora. But thanks to "Couples Retreat" (out October 9), we'll finally get to see the pretty 29-year-old again in the flesh. Kristen stars alongside Jason Bateman, Vince Vaughn and "Sex and the City" star Kristin Davis in the flick, which centers around four couples vacationing on a tropical island and undergoing a little unconventional therapy along the way. In honor of Kristen's return to the big screen, we are making her the focus of this week's Star Gazing.

When Kristin Cavallari sauntered down the aisle of Heidi and Spencer's wedding, taking a seat next to resident bad boy Justin Bobby, we had a feeling things on "The Hills" would never be quite the same. But it may have taken a bit longer for this realization to hit fellow cast members, including Spencer's sister Stephanie, who's overheard in the "Hills" trailer wondering, "How can one person turn all of our lives upside down?" Did you not watch "Laguna Beach," Stephanie?

With Kristin joining the fifth season of "The Hills," which premieres tonight at 10 p.m., we've made her the focus of this week's Star Gazing. Click on the photo below to see more pictures of the blond bombshell and read on to learn how Kristin went from fighting with LC over a boy (Stephen Coletti, obvi) on "Laguna" to filling her pretty pumps on "The Hills."

You may be surprised to learn that unlike many of her "Laguna" castmates, Kristin does not originally hale from the posh beach town. She was born in Denver, CO, moving with her mother to a Chicago suburb after her parents divorced. A few years later she moved back in with her father who had moved to Laguna Beach, initially attending a private Catholic school before transferring to Laguna Beach High for her sophomore year.

After this week, you're for sure going to remember their names. In case you missed the memo (maybe a singing telegram would have been more apropos?) it's "Fame" week here at Hollywood Crush. As we gear up for the raucous remake of the '80s classic (which opens Friday), we've made the talented, photogenic, cool (and apparently overachieving) cast members of the musical flick the focus of this week's "Star Gazing."

Click on the photo below to see more cast shots and read on to learn all the deets you need to know about the students of the New York City High School for Performing Arts.

Though we weren't sunning beside a pool in the Hamptons or cutting our tabloid teeth in Europe, we can't help but be a bit wistful that summer is ending. But the turning of the leaves signifies something even better than the start of sweater season—the return of our favorite T.V. shows!

Last night we welcomed back our favorite Upper East Siders (and newcomer Joanna Garcia) from their respective vacays and learned what sort of mischief they were up to over the break (we're looking at you, Serena). One of the more surprising developments of the night was Chuck Bass' (Ed Westwick) ability to stay faithful to newfound love Blair (though they did spice things up with a little naughty role-playing). In honor of the Queen B's triumphant return to prime time, "Gossip Girl" actress and pop singer Leighton Meester is the focus of this week's "Star Gazing." Click on the photo below to check out what Leighton's been up to lately and continue reading after the jump to get the deets on her rise to fame.

Let's go back. Way back. To 2008. Back then, it didn't seem country-pop princess Taylor Swift could get any hotter. She was the biggest selling artist of the year, after all. But the hardworking performer must have had some even loftier goals among her 2009 New Year's resolutions. In addition to her hotter-than-ever music career, Taylor's been honing her acting skills, guest starring on an episode of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and scoring a role in the ensemble rom-com "Valentine's Day." As the "Fearless" singer prepares to perform at (and perhaps win a Moonman at) this year's VMAs, Taylor is the focus of this week's "Star Gazing."

Show of hands: Who didn't see "The Hangover" this summer? No one? So I don't need to explain how wildly funny the raunchy bro-comedy was or how it catapulted sexy star Bradley Cooper's career like a high-flying mattress off of a luxe hotel roof? Great. Then I'll just add that the actor dubbed "That Guy From 'Wedding Crashers'" on the cover of Details magazine is now firmly "The Man" thanks to his grumpy groomsman role and his newly earned playboy status, having been linked in recent months to both Jennifer Aniston and Renee Zellweger. With his next comedy, "All About Steve," hitting theaters Friday we can't help but stare, gawk and drool over the dreamy actor in this week's "Star Gazing."

Click on the photo below and take a few minutes (or hours) to peruse pics of the star and read on to get the dish on Bradley's rise to fame.

Give me a C! Give me an H! Give me an R-I-S-T-I-N-A! What does that spell? SUCCESS! That is, if you're Christina Milian. The star of the upcoming "Bring It On: Fight to the Finish" (out on DVD Sept. 1) is on top of the pyramid this year. In addition to the cheerleading sequel, the 27-year-old recently became engaged to music producer The-Dream and is at work on her fourth solo album. It's obvious Christina is bringing it, which is why she's the focus of this week's "Star Gazing."

Who knows if that supposed "Gilmore Girls" movie will ever happen, but fans eager to get their Alexis Bledel fix since the series ended in 2007 can flock to the theaters this Friday to see Rory (er, Alexis) graduate college again (sans proposal) in the romantic comedy "Post Grad." Alexis stars as recent college graduate Ryden Malby, an eternal optimist who must face the reality of moving back in with her eccentric family while she looks for a job (no mean feat in this economy, for sure).

Thankfully, art doesn't imitate life in this instance, as Alexis seems to be having no trouble landing jobs as of late, having been admitted to the "E.R." series finale earlier this year and the Wall Street flick "The Good Guy." Alexis is truly having a moment, which is why she is the focus of this week's "Star Gazing." Click on the picture below to peruse images of the blue-eyed beauty and read on to get the dish on Alexis' rise to fame.
