Degrees of separation: Three

Kate Beckinsale acted in the 2012 short Republicans, Get in My Vagina with actress Judy Greer >> Greer guest-starred on Two and a Half Men >> Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre fought with Harrison on Twitter.

The feud started when Lorre tweeted an insult about The Bachelor in November 2012.

"What does it say about us when we think the institution of marriage is threatened by gay people who love each other, but not by idiotic game shows like The Bachelor?"

Harrison later tweeted a retort.

"Chuck love it when people expose their own ignorance!"

There are more degrees of separation between Bullock and Beckinsale than we thought, especially since they've both acted in so many blockbusters.

Kate Beckinsale dated actor Michael Sheen >> Sheen dated actress Rachel McAdams >> McAdams dated Ryan Gosling >> Ryan Gosling dated Sandra Bullock.

Oh, the tangled webs they weave in Hollywood!

I always enjoy Kate , Calm under verbal fire ,gracious , funny according to her fathers style of humor , very easy on the eyes , I'd wish though she would stop being a blood drinker , though, she can have mine only she has to come and get it, I wish she would do some well written screen plays , I enjoyed the emotional portrayal in (Nothing but the Truth) sometimes it's not about the box office , sometimes it's about the craft and the legacy in film you leave behind
