Do Tell: For Luck, at the Oscars

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?

I have a tiny gold horseshoe charm necklace that my mother gave me when I was a child and I still wear it whenever I think I need "a little bit of help".

I have a tiny stone turtle I got in Chinatown in Toronto a few years ago.

I don't know if I'd really call them good luck charms, but I have two rosaries that I carry in my purse. One of them was my Grandmothers. The other is from the church we went to when I was a kid. (My parents still go there.) It just makes me feel safe to have them with me.

I don't have good luck charms but I do have a power suit I wear to interviews that I LOVE and so far it's worked its magic!

my family, on my father's side, has a freakish ability when it comes to finding 4 leaf clovers. Once I found 6 in one day!
