CONFESSION!

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.
