Celebs Reveal Their Favorite Moments of 2018

What a year! As 2018 comes to an end, celebrities share the moments that made the past 365 days extra special with Us Weekly.

Ashley Greene

Tying the knot to Paul Khoury in July was the best part of Greene’s year. “My girlfriend, who just got married, was asking me for marriage advice, and I was like, ‘this is so weird and cool,’” the Twilight star, 31, tells Us. “Once we got married, we started working on really setting up what we were going to do as a married couple, and we’ve both kind of stuck to our guns, and it’s been really wonderful.”

Becca Kufrin

While getting engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen on The Bachelorette was almost the best moment of 2018 for the 28-year-old, she says finally revealing the news was actually better. “Being together and [able to say] say his name in public now,” was a great feeling, she says. Yrigoyen, 29, agrees. He says his best moment of the year was, “That first day when we flew to New York and I did press with her. It was so much fun. Just watching her do her thing.”

Justin Bobby Brescia

Reuniting with his Hills cast mates to start filming the reality show’s revival was the highlight of Brescia’s year, he tells Us. “We didn’t know how it was going to take off and it’s just a whole other level,” he says. He predicts the show will be “phenomenal,” and he credits Chinese astrology with making the long-awaited reunion a reality. “It’s the year of the dog and I [was born in] the year of the dog,” explains the 36-year-old. (FYI: 2019 will be the year of the pig.)

Busy Philipps

She had quite a busy year! Though she landed and launched her late night talk show, Busy Tonight, this year, the mother of two says the best moment of 2018 was “the reaction” to her book, This Will Only Hurt a Little. “It was really overwhelmingly lovely,” she said. “I spent a year writing it and it was so deeply personal. I’m glad that people have found their way to it and have responded the way that they have to it.”

Sandra Lee

The TV chef says she found her “purpose” the moment her documentary made it to Sundance Film Festival this year. RX Early Detection: A Cancer Journey with Sandra Lee chronicles her journey after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. “I cried,” she tells Us. “I felt so many emotions, I screamed, I cried and then called my sister.”

Appearing on Dancing With the Stars was the best part of the Harry Potter star’s year. “I would say it was country week because that’s when I really got to know the rest of the cast and Keo and I got our first tens,” she tells Us. “He cried. That was such a cool night.”

When the last day of filming wrapped on Shadowhunters, “we finished shooting at 3 a.m. and stayed and celebrated until about 7 a.m. on set,” McNamara tells Us. “It was sort of the kids taking over high school and saying goodbye and just really enjoying each others’ company. We genuinely enjoyed spending time together and we created a family. And that’s something I’ll never forget.”
