Celebrity Must List

2007 celebrity pop-culture favorites -- Find out why stars love ''Mad Men,'' ''Into the Wild,'' and more

Kiera Knightly
Into the Wild

''My favorite film of the year was the Sean Penn movie Into the Wild. Brilliant music, gorgeous scenery. You can feel Sean Penn's passion for the locations and the main character pulsing off the film. It was quite poignant.''

John C. Reilly
The King of Kong

''I saw this documentary and I really liked it. It's about the people who are battling for the top score in Donkey Kong. You end up getting wrapped up in the world of Donkey Kong, which I don't even give a s--- about. You end up rooting for these guys. It's a classic good-and-evil kind of story.''

Jerry Seinfeld
Mad Men

''Well, obviously, for a guy like me who has a '60s fetish, Mad Men's like the cavalry coming to the rescue, as far as TV. That's, like, finally something that I look forward to every week.''

Kristin Davis
Mad Men

''I love that show, I'm obsessed with that show. I just love all the weird, intimate details, and you get such a sense for what life was like then, and the women are so great and are so curvy and strong. I love it.''

Christina Applegate
The New York Times Crossword Puzzle

''It's nerdy, but seriously, crossword puzzles are really an obsession. I've got the entire cast and crew of Samantha Who? involved in New York Times puzzle mania. Oh, God, by Friday and Saturday, there's a lot of Googling going on. We like to call that 'learning,' not necessarily cheating.''
