Sam Elliot may be one of the few stand up guys remaining in Hollywood. Elliot and Ross first met in 1978 while filming the horror movie The Legacy. The film, which is a classic English haunted house movie may not be memorable, but at the very least it brought us all the love of these two sweethearts. Both Elliot and Ross are Hollywood big leaguers - Ross was Elaine Robinson in The Graduate - and even though there was an instant spark between the two of them, they waited until 1984 to get married.

Elliot and Ross are still together and when they’re not in Los Angeles they’re living in Oregon, which is a pretty good place to get away from the hubub of the city.

“We are the World” helped bring $63.1 million to relief for Africa after it was released on March 7, 1985. And while the single produced by Quincy Jones did so much good for the forgotten continent its recording wasn’t necessarily the campfire sing along you might imagine. Jones anticipated trouble with the 45 mega stars in attendance, which is why he put a sign on the door to the recording studio that said “Leave your egos at the door.”

According to music manager Ken Kragen, one of the rock bands present - he wouldn’t say who - threatened to walk on the recording because they were worried about how it would make them look, but when Bruce Springsteen said he was sticking around for the recording it made all of the other rockers want to stay. You don’t want to look bad in front of The Boss.
