Finding a four-leaf clover means good luck, breaking a mirror brings seven years bad luck, and walking on a crack. . . . Most of us have a few superstitions, and while one, small charm might seem powerful and helpful to you, it might mean nothing to someone else. Even movie stars, whose lives people imagine to be already charmed, find comfort in little objects or other symbols of good fortune.
Check out what these Oscar winners had to say about their lucky charms:
A number of winners had good-luck charms with them. Freeman carried a silver dollar coin in a velvet box. Eastwood carried ''Flat Stanley,'' a paper cutout that he said was part of his daughter's school project. Blanchett, who kept one of Katharine Hepburn's gloves in a handbag during the Aviator shoot, brought a full champagne flute backstage, saying, ''I've been looking forward to [drinking] this all evening.'' And Jamie Foxx brought his daughter, Corinne, who helped keep him from getting a swelled ego. ''She's 11,'' he said, ''and she said, 'Dad, after this, can we go to the big awards?' — which are the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.''
Ladies, do tell: Do you have a good luck charm? And if so, what is it?
