While he's had a number of roles after "Lois & Clark: The Adventures of Superman," he says he doesn't mind being best recognized for his time as Clark Kent. "I don't mind being somebody's Superman at all," he says.
How did he land the iconic role? "I walked in like any other audition," Dean says. "I had read the script, and I thought, 'This kind of make sense to me.'" But there was one other actor he had to beat out first: Kevin Sorbo. "He's blond, so I was like, 'I got this,'" Dean said.
Before Dean established himself in Hollywood, he dated Brooke Shields while the two were students at Princeton. "Took her virginity?" Ali asked.
"You don't take a woman's virginity. She gives it to you," Dean replied. "I will let Brooke be the purveyor of that one."
Dean's latest project is the ION movie "Defending Santa," in which he pla...Read More »

Have you complained about millennials lately? Twenty-35-year-olds have been called "the laziest generation." Alicia Menendez, a millennial and host of "Alicia Menendez Tonight" on Fusion, stopped by "Daily Shot" to talk about the top five misconceptions about her generation.
1. Millennials are lazy. "We all got out of college and there weren't jobs," Alicia says about the poor state of the market, specifically for entry-level positions. "The fact that we're unemployed and underemployed is not our fault."
2. They're needy. "We grew up with these parents that were sort of helicopter parents," she says about overly involved families who provide too much validation to their kids. While being told that they're the "greatest always" as kids doesn't necessarily make millennials needy, "it does mean that we need a lot of feedback," Alicia says.
3. Millennials are slutty. While the media may make it seem like people in their 20s are obsessed with c...Read More »
Spending too much money on holiday gifts? A DIY present is a great way to give something cool without going broke. Katie Brown stopped by "Daily Shot" to inspire others to get in the spirit of a handmade holiday.
For your favorite foodie, create flavored sugar for a fun way to sweeten up lemonade or tea. Katie squeezed the juice from a bag of frozen raspberries, strained the juice, and mixed with sugar from her cupboard to create the sweet gift. She suggests packaging the flavored sugar in glass gars with a fairy on top, coining the concoction "sugar from the sugar plum fairy."
She suggests getting creative with containers for a handmade touch. Packaging mixed nuts in fabric bag labeled "Nuts For You" makes a cute, easy holiday favor.

When the temperature drops, our hair can take a serious beating. Style maven Gretta Monahan says most people notice a big difference in their locks in the winter months. "The dew point is lower, so your hair isn't getting that natural moisture from the air," she says. "You're also drying your hair more on average. Even your conditioners and shampoos don't absorb as readily."
So how can we keep our hair looking shiny and healthy despite the cold? Gretta has a few essential tips.
DO condition more frequently, or try using a hair mask to lock in moisture. "If your hair's really brittle, look for key ingredients like soy proteins, panthenol, or shea butter," Gretta says.
DO try to go a day without washing to help reduce dryness. If you feel as if you must shampoo daily, try a dry shampoo.
DO use dryer sheets. If you get frustrated with flyaways after wearing a winter hat, a dryer sheet tames unruly strands and adds a little shine.
