You know those words that seem impossible to spell right on the first try, but are nonetheless part of everyday language? "Apparent." "Vacuum." Even "misspell" is a tough one.
What if your name was as easy to misspell as, well, "misspell"? For some unlucky celebrities (and lucky people who write about them), typos in their names are just a part of the job. After all, there's a reason Cher ditched her birth name, Cherilyn Sarkisian La Piere, in favor of a more writer-friendly moniker.

Trust James Bond to make sure the Olympics start off with a bang.
First, Daniel Craig appeared in character as 007 during the Danny Boyle-directed opening ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympic Games on Friday night, escorting Queen Elizabeth II as the two apparently parachuted into the arena where the extravaganza was being held.

It's no secret that we're fond of old British people here, whether it's the red-hot "Red" star Helen Mirren or the icy-cool brilliant Gary Oldman in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy." But the upcoming piece of summer counter-programming known as "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" is an absolute Anglophile's delight.
Based on the 2004 novel "These Foolish Things" by Deborah Moggach, the film revolves around a group of retirees attracted to the newly refurbished Marigold Hotel in India. When they arrive, things are not as idyllic as they imagined.
Already a major hit overseas, "Marigold" has an all-star cast led by Dame Judi Dench, who reteams with director John Madden after he helped earn her Oscar gold with "Shakespeare In Love."

Daniel Craig finally returns for his third go-round as 007 in "Skyfall," the 23rd official James Bond movie and the first since 2008's "Quantum of Solace."

We're sure he'll also either threaten to quit or go rogue at some point and will most definitely sleep with at least one of the following Bond Girls: Berenice Marlohe, Naomie Harris and Tonia Sotiropoulou.
