Ben Affleck tipped a waitress over $90 when he bought a cup of coffee.
The generous 'Argo' star was in a rush while in a coffee shop in Santa Monica, California, and left the waitress a huge tip when he realised he was only carrying $100 notes.
A source told National Enquirer magazine: "The clerk told him it was so early that she didn't have enough change in the register and could he wait while she went to the back office safe. But Ben told her, 'Don't bother - you keep the change.' She balked at first, but when Ben insisted, she said, 'Wow, that is so nice of you! My mom's visiting form Winsconsin, and I'll take her out to dinner with this.' "
As he departed, Ben told the stunned waitress: "Good, tell her I said Hi!"
Ben is not the only generous star in Hollywood. Rihanna has been known to tip a waiter $200 while George Clooney paid for a nearby table's dinner at a Berlin restaurant simply because he thought he and his friends were being too loud.
However, one of the most generous of all is Ellen DeGeneres, who upon hearing New Hampshire waitress Sarah Hoidahl had picked up the a $30 bill for two National Guard soldiers affected by the U.S. government's shutdown, presented her with a cheque for $10,000.
Neil Patrick Harris thinks moving to New York City will help his children's education.
The 'How I Met Your Mother' star and his fiancé David Burtka are relocating from Los Angeles to the East coast, and although the weather isn't as nice, he believes the move will ultimately be better for their three-year-old twins, Gideon and Harper.
Neil told Life and Style magazine: "When we're lugging two children through the snow and sleet and wind, I don't know whether we'll enjoy it so much. But I think the kids' eyes will be open to a lot of things that I wouldn't have thought to show them in Los Angeles."
Neil and David recently bought a $3.6 million, 8,000-square-foot townhouse in Harlem, which boasts four bedrooms, two terraces, a backyard and rooftop, as well as a duplex apartment underneath which they are expected to incorporate into their new home.
Neil, 40, is also hopeful David will be inspired to resume his acting career and join him in performing on Broadway.
He added: "We're very excited. David's done a lot of theatre, and then I sort of uprooted him to Los Angeles. I'm anxious for him to get to work more."
Duncan James wants to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The Blue singer - who previously finished third on 'Dancing On Ice' in 2007 - is a big fan of the BBC One ballroom contest and would love the chance to embrace the glamorous outfits worn by the contestants.
He told Britain's OK! magazine: "I really want to do it this year. Fingers are crossed.
"Can't you just see me in one of those sequinned 'Strictly' shirts?"

Former 'X Factor' winner Joe McElderry has his sights set on the contest after recently winning Channel 4's Winter Olympics competition 'The Jump'.
He said: "I would love to do something like 'Strictly Come Dancing'. That would be so much fun. I'm a bit of a frustrated dancer, so that would be nice."
And Jack Osbourne has backed his mother Sharon - who is a judge on rival show 'The X Factor' - to take part, despite her previously turning down the show.
He said: "She's not afraid of Simon [Cowell]. I don't think she'd be bothered if she annoyed him by taking part in 'Strictly'. And she'd be great."

Beyonce has a "mostly plant-based diet".
The 'Drunk in Love' singer tried out becoming vegan for 22 days with her husband Jay Z in the lead up to Christmas and has since mostly kept to it, according to Marco Borges, her personal trainer.
He told E! news: "She is all about health and wellness. She just wants to feel good. The transition [from vegan] was fairly easy because [now] she's sticking to a mostly plant-based diet with some fish here and there."
Although Jay, 44, is thought to have gone back to eating meat, he does like to support Beyonce by hitting the gym with her whenever possible.
Marco added: "They're like every other couple, they love spending time together, they'll work out together whenever its possible, whenever their touring schedules allow. They'll absolutely jump in the gym whenever they can, she'll be running and he'll be on a bike, or she'll be jumping rope and he'll be running."
Marco also added the music obsessed pair are great at making workout playlists, and Beyonce even sings along to her own tracks if they come on the stereo.
He said: "They listen to everything. Jay really feels that music shouldn't have genres, it's either good or bad. They have great playlists, if they were DJ's they'd get paid millions. If one of her songs comes on she'll sing along."

Eva Longoria is ready to settle down with Jose Antonio Baston.
The 'Desperate Housewives' star has completely changed her view of men since meeting the 45-year-old businessman according to a friend, who told RadarOnline.com Jose "satisfies her in every way".
Eva, 38, divorced basketball star Tony Parker over rumours he had been unfaithful in 2011 and has since dated a string of younger men, including Ernesto Arguello, 34, Mark Sanchez, 27, Eduardo Cruz, 28.
The source added: "[She] had an obsession with younger men. Part of her toy boy era was motivated out of revenge on Tony, but also because she went through a sexual awakening after divorcing him and made it a rule to only date men who 'can deliver a satisfying sexual experience' for herself."
The friend added Eva is "well and over" that phase now she has met Jose - a millionaire media executive, who is president of Televisa, Latin America's largest media company - who she was first spotted with last November.
The insider said "Eva had a lot of fun over the past few years, but Jose's really changed all that. He ticks every box and more; he has a huge libido but he's also got brains and personality."

Julia Roberts isolated Nancy Motes from their mother, according to a friend.
The Oscar winning actress changed Betty Lou Motes' mobile phone number and the locks to her house in order to cut off her half-sister - who took her own life last Sunday (09.02.14) - after she gave a tell-all interview, according to Nancy's close friend, Jerem Hutcheson.
Jerem told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Nancy was very close with her mom, and when they changed the locks and [later] relocated her, it was devastating to Nancy.
"She couldn't reach her mom when she needed her most.
"I think [Julia] was resentful of the relationship Nancy shared with their mom and also did it out of spite."
In Nancy's interview she told how Julia had teased her about her weight when they were younger and said they were "both trying to change our opinions of each other".
Nancy also reportedly left a "ranting" suicide note in which she is rumoured to have said Julia "drove her" to suicide.
Nancy died of an apparent overdose of prescription medicines, but Jerem denies she was a drug abuser.
He added: "Nancy didn't have a drug problem. She had an overly emotional moment and acted on it."
Nancy was engaged to fiancé John Dilbeck and they were planning their wedding at the time of her death.
Jackie Chan mistook Prince William for Prince Harry when he met him.
The Hong Kong born action movie legend greeted the third in line to the English throne at a reception following the Illegal Wildlife Trade conference in London on Wednesday (12.02.14), where he made the gaffe of confusing him with his brother by congratulating him on his recent trek to the South Pole.
Jackie told The Times newspaper: "Prince William said, 'No, that was my brother,' and I said, 'I'm sorry.' But they look almost same, huh?"
The Prince laughed off Jackie's mistake and shook hands with him. For many people from different cultures, the easiest way to tell the two princes apart is by the colour of their hair. While William is fair, his brother sports a darker, coppery tone.
'Rush Hour' star Jackie is a spokesman for wildlife charity WildAid and is passionate about the animal rights, saying he refuses food at government functions if it comes from endangered species.
He previously said: "Ten years ago, when I was making a film in China, the government brought me a dinner.
"I sit down; boom - they give me shark fin soup. I said, 'Put it away.' "
Meanwhile William and Harry were both at the function to support their father, the Prince of Wales, who gave a speech.
He called for "urgent action to put a stop to this trade, which has become a grave threat not only to the wildlife and the people who protect them, but also to the security of so many nations."

The model graces the front of US magazine's most popular annual issue alongside models Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge and was overwhelmed when she found out she had been picked for the honour.
Her husband, singer John Legend, told TV show 'Good Morning America': "She was so excited, and it was a surprise because you never know who's going to be on the cover. These are all beautiful women.
"She's been in the issue for several years now, and every year it's been someone else. And this year it's her. We're very excited about it."
Chrissy took to Twitter to express her excitement, writing: "I mean what else is there to say. I just cannot believe it. What an honor. Never, ever, ever have felt this kind of pure joy. Crazy crazy. (sic)"
The girls were told they had made the cover during an interview with the Sports Illustrated team, which left them all visibly shocked and excited, with Chrissy in tears.
Lily later tweeted: "Feeling so blessed to be on this iconic @si_swimsuit Sports illustrated cover with these beauties."
Nina wrote as the cover was publicly revealed this morning (14.02.14): "I just woke up. Its real. Wow."
