Imagine your favorite movies (the ones that take place in “reality” anyway). With Harry Potter, you can visit platform 9 3/4, walk down the same Paris streets that Leo and Ellen during Inception. And coming soon, you can walk the streets with the stars as you walk them. Of course, as an ex-New Yorker, I realize this is just going to triple the number of gawking tourists standing around pointing at the most inane things. But for more info on this terror to the sidewalks, go here.

At the age of 24, Fox has already appeared in two blockbuster movies—Michael Bay’s CGI-robot juggernaut Transformers (2007), and its sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen—which, combined, have grossed more than $1.5billion worldwide. Over the last few years, she has also done a series of other non-Transformers films, including How to Lose Friends and Alienate People (2008), and the campyDiablo Cody–written thriller Jennifer’s Body—the bulk of which have quickly wilted at the box office.
