9 Star Ways to Beat the Heat
9. GET ICED
Nicole Richie (in Malibu) and Heidi Klum (in New York with mom Erna) know the fastest way to ward off the blistering heat: a brain freeze.
8. TAKE A DUNK
How do the hottest of the hot stay cool? By stripping down and getting wet! Hugh Jackman shows off his perfectly toned body in Sydney, while Lindsay Lohan splashes in Malibu and Cameron Diaz surfs in Hawaii.
7. MAKE LEMONADE
When the temperature soared to 97 degrees in Los Angeles, Teri Hatcher and 8-year-old daughter Emerson sweetened their neighborhood lemonade stand with a little love – they gave the proceeds to charity.
6. BE FAN-TASTIC
Nicole Richie whipped out her battery-operated windblower when the temp reached 101 in L.A. Others jumping on the fan-wagon: a vacationing Catherine Zeta-Jones (in Majorca) and Leonardo DiCaprio, who let an assistant do all the work while on set in New York City.
5. FIND SHADE
Housewives Teri Hatcher and Marcia Cross desperately seek a little shade on their Los Angeles set, while Lucy Liu keeps herself ray-free while on location in Brooklyn, N.Y.
4. DRINK FAST
Without breaking their strides – or a sweat – Kate Hudson (in New York City's SoHo neighborhood), Lindsay Lohan (in Malibu) and Jeremy Piven (also in the 'bu) sip their way to chill.
3. PUT A LID ON IT
To shield themselves from the sun's glare, (clockwise from left) Marcia Cross, Sienna Miller, Cameron Diaz and Heather Graham find protection under stylish hats.
2. TAKE IT OFF
Facts are facts: The less clothes you wear, the cooler you'll be. So Heather Locklear, Matthew McConaughey and Molly Sims don the bare necessities – and show off their best assets – to play in the Pacific.
1. GO FAR, FAR AWAY
Count on a Harvard grad to find the best cold front: Natalie Portman heads south for some skiing in Argentina's Patagonia region, where the average temperature in August is 30 degrees. Another perk: a weeklong storm system dumped six feet of fresh powder on the region. Brrr!
