He'll be back – in surgery.

Possibly feeling the painful effects of an action-movie comeback at age 64, Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a WhoSay photo of himself shirtless in the hospital nursing a bum shoulder.

But in a "huh?" moment, the photo shows his costar Sylvester Stallone, 65, also shirtless, plugged into an IV in the next bed.

Uma Thurman, Other Stars Targeted in $30-Million Ponzi Scam

Uma Thurman, Other Stars Targeted in $30-Million Ponzi Scam

Just because you're a celebrity doesn't mean you're immune from being ripped off. Witness the jaw-dropping tale of a "Scammer to the Stars" who allegedly operated a Ponzi scheme that bilked $30 million from the likes of Uma Thurman, Wesley Snipes, Sylvester Stallone, Al Pacino, playwright Neil Simon, directors Mike Nichols, Martin Scorsese and Nora Ephron, illusionist David Blaine, and celeb photographer Annie Leibovitz.

And though some of the luckier stars smelled a rat and got their money out in time, on Thursday federal prosecutors arrested so-called financial adviser Kenneth Starr, 66, in his $7.5-million Manhattan condo – where he was hiding in the closet, until federal agents spotted his shoes underneath the door, according to The New York Times.

Initially, Starr's wife, Diane Passage, a former dancer at the Scores strip club, told the agents that Starr was not home. But then, reports the New York Post, quoting the agents, she pointed upstairs and whispered, "He's upstairs."

Sly Defends Human Growth Hormone as Rambo Returns

Originally posted 01/26/2008 09:10AM

Sylvester Stallone is back on the big screen playing a bulked-up Rambo in the fourth installment of the series – and isn't afraid to talk about what helped him get in fighting shape.

The 61-year-old star tells Time that he pumped up to 209 lbs. with the help of prescription testosterone.

"HGH [human growth hormone] is nothing. Anyone who calls it a steroid is grossly misinformed," he says. "Testosterone to me is so important for a sense of well-being when you get older. Everyone over 40 years old would be wise to investigate it because it increases the quality of your life."

Clinton Feels 'Good' Before New Surgery

Originally posted 03/09/2005 08:50AM

REASSURED: Former President Bill Clinton, who will undergo a low-risk medical procedure on Thursday to remove fluid and scar tissue from the left side of his chest, told reporters in Washington on Tuesday: "It'll knock me out of commission for a week or two, and then I'll be back to normal. I'm not in too bad a shape," he added. "I feel good." The procedure, to take place at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, comes six months after he underwent quadruple bypass surgery. Clinton, 58, will remain hospitalized for three to 10 days and is expected to make a "full functional recovery," doctors said.

CLASHED: The 20 contestants on CBS's Survivor: Palau were quickly whittled down to just 17 on Thursday night's premiere episode. The castaways had just become acquainted with their new surroundings when host Jeff Probst said the initial immunity challenge won by Jolanda Jones and Ian Rosenberger (who were the first of the 20 to swim ashore) would last only 10 minutes, until they finished picking their two tribes. The last woman and man chosen, Wanda Shirk and Jonathan Libby, were eliminated from the show. The game's first challenge then pitted the Koror and Ulong teams against each other for team immunity, leaving Ulong to vote off a player. That ended up being Jolanda, in a 6-3 decision. Her parting words: "I am the oldest and I think differently than my tribe. It's an experience I think everyone should try."
