“Everyone wanted to feel those breasts and that butt. I was so inviting”
—JOHN TRAVOLTA, on playing Edna Turnblad in the upcoming musical Hairspray
I was onstage at a theater festival many years ago, and for one scene I was playing strip poker with this girl—and losing. I took all my clothes off, stood up in front of an audience of 400 and said to the actress, “C’mon, tell me! Do I look like a man?” I can’t believe I talked myself into doing it. I was just waiting for someone to [yell out], “Yeah, but smaller!”
—Actor TIM DALY, on his most embarrassing career moment
HEROES STAR HAYDEN PANETTIERE DISHES ON …
Her recent singing debut at the Capital’s 4th of July celebration: [It was like] diving off the high-dive. I had never performed live! Nothing will ever make me nervous again.
Her favorite summer song ever: Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.” It’s just a feel-good song, and everyone goes nuts when they hear it. It’s fabulous.
Her best summer look: I’m a bikini girl. Can’t have those tan lines!
Her dream vacation: An underwater hotel room in Fiji. It’s literally made out of glass, and you’re underwater, but it’s like $15,000 a person.
In honor of the Spice Girls’ upcoming reunion tour, we asked celebs …
WHAT WOULD YOUR SPICE NAME BE?
Kelly Rowland: Sassy Spice!
LeAnn Rimes: Southern Spice—because I’m the right amount of sweet with a touch of fire.
Kerry Washington: Self-Help Spice. I’m spending a lot of time learning who I am and working on myself.
John Krasinski: Creepy Spice. I’d be in the back doing the robot and wearing very short hemlines.
