Playboy Bunny poses in lettuce bikini for Easter-themed photoshoot

Playboy Bunny Sheridyn Fisher has appeared in a new ad for PETA wearing a bikini and bunny ears made of lettuce.

The caption for the photo says, "Be a Bunny's Honey. Go Vegetarian."

"Easter is the perfect time to help bunnies -- and pigs, chickens, cows and other animals -- simply by choosing not to eat them," the Mirror quoted Fisher as saying.

"Vegetarian meals are healthy, humane and helpful to the environment, so they're something every bunny can enjoy," she added.

The Australian joins a pretty A-list group of celebs who have all supported PETA's campaigns in the past: Pamela Anderson, Kimberly Wyatt, Kelly Brook and Sir Paul McCartney himself.

Fisher also designs and models her own swimsuit range called Sheridyn Swim.

Sports Illustrated covergirl Brooklyn Decker is on the cover of Women's Health Magazine's May issue, in which she discusses her fitness tips, exercise regime and attitude towards her own looks.

In the accompanying interview, the bikini bombshell stated her husband, tennis ace Andy Roddick, has "taught me that it's not how thin you are that matters. It's how your body performs, how it endures wear and tear," the Daily Mail reports.

The 24-year-old supermodel-turned-actress also states that she has the appetite of a "12-year-old", but avoids calorie-heavy and sugary foods.

To keep fit, Decker dances and kayaks, blasting Taylor Swift songs to get herself going.

Katy Perry, who will be Teen Vogue's covergirl next month, has asserted that she enjoys taking chances when it comes to trying out different outfits.

The pop star, who is heading to movie screens with her 3-D concert tour flick this summer, told the magazine that she does not like taking fashion seriously.

"I don't like to take fashion too seriously," the New York Daily News quoted her as saying.

"I love it, and I am so grateful when big brands want to associate with me, but mostly I just want to take chances and have fun and truly live. And sometimes that means wearing some ridiculous, cat-inspired outfit rather than whatever happens to be 'in' this season," she added.

It's sexier not to bare all, says Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt has insisted that she would have declined the offer had her role in the upcoming American television series The Client List called for baring it all.

The 33-year-old plays a provocative call girl in the Lifetime series.

"I wouldn't have done nudity, no," People Magazine quoted her as saying. "That's not something that I feel particularly comfortable with."

"I also think that it's sexier not to show everything. I feel like imaginations can do way more."

She said that working on the show, which debuted Sunday, is fun.

"The men in my life are the crew members (on the show)...and my one male dog, who gets very jealous because I'm gone a lot," she said.

"I love it. It's a lot of fun," she added.

Lauren Conrad scared to wear swimsuits, but shuns cosmetic surgery

Lauren Conrad, who poses topless for Glamour Magazine's May issue, has said that she is "petrified" of being seen in a bathing suit because of cellulite.

However, the 26-year-old actress ditches her top for the cover of the fashion magazine, and is seeing wearing a Malia Mills bikini for the inside photo feature.

The reality star-turned-fashion designer, who has maintained a relatively low profile since leaving MTV's The Hills in 2009, revealed that she's usually more reserved when it comes to showing off her body in public.

"On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually I'm just petrified," the New York Daily News quoted her as telling the magazine.

"A couple of years ago (a photographer) zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it really personally. I haven't worn a bathing suit in LA in years because of that," she said.

Despite her insecurities, however, Conrad insists that she would never go under the knife as she prefers to look "natural".

"Personally, I have always preferred a more natural look. That is what is more attractive to me, but it's up to each person. As long as you are doing it for you, because you want to look nice and that's the result you are going for, then that's fine," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Look Magazine.

Still, she admits that she does feel under pressure to constantly look her best because she is always in the spotlight.

"There is always pressure to work out a little harder when all eyes are on you. I don't think I ever felt the pressure as much as some people, but it was definitely at the back of my mind," she added.

Miley Cyrus has hit back at critics on Twitter who called her "anorexic" for refusing to eat fast food.

Earlier, she had earlier uploaded a photo on the microblogging site with her nose in a bag of fast food.

"I can't eat it. So I'm just gonna smell the st out of it! My mouth is LITERALLY watering," she tweeted along with the picture.

Most of her fans wrote things like "but you're sooooo skinny, you, like, totally deserve a burger", but a few took it a little too far.

However, Cyrus was quick to respond with the real reason as to why she can't enjoy burgers.

"For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy," the Mirror quoted her as tweeting. "It's not about weight it's about health. Gluten is crp anyway!" she added.

The Hannah Montana star went on to give health advice of her own.

"Everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, physical and mental health is amazing! U won't go back!"

"U saw how much I ate today at Easter lunch but all of it was healthy and even more fulfilling! Health is happiness!" she said.

Ultimo bra tycoon Michelle Mone to strip for racy shoot after love split

Bra boss Michelle Mone has announced that she will strip down for a lingerie shoot, two years after she first did so, to the annoyance of her husband.

The Ultimo tycoon was recently left "heartbroken" after discovering that he was dating one of their staff.

Michelle, 40, and Michael -- who have three children -- split over Christmas, and she reportedly trashed his expensive Porsche in anger on finding out about his new relationship.

The couple had founded the lingerie brand from a spare bedroom and built it into a 45 million pound empire.

When Michelle modelled her firm's underwear two years ago, Michael, 46, was furious and she had vowed never to do it again, the Sun reported.

However, now -- after using private detectives to find out he was romancing Sam Bunn, 31 -- she seems to have changed her mind.

"Decided to do 2nd shoot for Ultimo for charity challenge, 3 months to shape up in NY," Michelle tweeted.

Miranda Kerr slammed over 'cancer cure' advice on blog

Miranda Kerr has become the subject of fans' ire, after a blogger on her health website claimed that people could cure themselves of cancer in 24 hours, merely with fresh air and positive thinking.

Model and actor Liana Werner-Gray wrote on her blog that people diagnosed with cancer "don't have to die if they don't want to".

Werner-Gray, a cancer survivor, said she cured herself with rest, Epsom salt baths, enemas and rubbing herself with special clay.

She claimed that Kerr's mother, Therese, cured herself of cancer through an organic diet and healthy lifestyle.

Some fans have reacted angrily to Werner-Gray's blog, branding it "cruel" for giving people "false hope".

"Although your frame of mind helps to an extent, it is a gross falsification to try and say that you can cure aggressive cancers through mind power," one wrote.

"Use positive thinking techniques to help these people enjoy what time they have left, not to give them false and misguided hope."

Kerr's spokeswoman Carlii Lyon said Werner-Gray was not employed by the Victoria's Secret model.

"The blog written by Liana Werner-Gray entitled Is There Already A Cure For Cancer is a reflection of Liana's personal beliefs and ideas only," the Daily Telegraph quoted her as saying.

"The blog is monitored for obscene language and defamatory material, however the bloggers are free to express their ideas and personal research," she added.

Kim Kardashian calls herself 'Armenian and hairy' in beauty product lawsuit

Kim Kardashian is using her hairy Armenian heritage to defend herself from a nasty beauty product lawsuit.

The reality star has just filed new docs in her ongoing legal battle with a beauty company called Radiant, which sued her last November, claiming she's endorsing a competitor's hair removal product by making false claims, TMZ reported.

According to the company's lawsuit, Kardashian falsely claimed TRIA -- a home laser hair-removal system -- works all over your body and yields permanent results. Radiant says it does neither.

Radiant is pissed and claimed that Kardashian's misleading TRIA endorsement has put their hair-removal product -- called no!no! Hair -- at an unfair disadvantage.

But Kardashian has reacted against the lawsuit saying that she never lied about her fur-removal practices.

She insisted everything she ever said about the hair-removal system -- including how she uses it all over her body -- reflected her honest opinions and experiences.

"Being Armenian and hairy, I thought (TRIA) was the perfect product," the star said under oath.

She is now asking to be dismissed from the lawsuit.

You would think that one of the most beautiful women in the world would be spared Photoshop, but Megan Fox had one of her tattoos erased from her latest shoot for Grazia France.

The Transformers star graces the cover of the magazine's May edition and while one of her tattoos, a Shakespearean quote, is shown in the picture, another tattoo, a quote by Nietzsche, was erased from the image, the Daily Mail reports.

Funnily enough, the inside pages of the same Grazia issue feature the same cover shot with the second tattoo still intact.

Megan is well known for her love of tattoos and has eight inkings in all, although she is in the process of getting rid of o#8800 the actress is undergoing laser treatments for her Marilyn Monroe tribute. She was quoted as saying that she didn't want to attract the late siren's "negative energy", given that she led a troubled life and suffered a tragic death.

Cameron Diaz 'not afraid about being 40'

Cameron Diaz is turning 40 in August and says that she can't wait for the landmark age she "dreamed" about.

The Hollywood actress doesn't understand why others her age worry about their advancing years.

"I would never be 25 years old again! I think it is silly to wish for that sort of thing. I am not afraid about being 40. When I was 20, I wanted to be 30. When I was 30 I dreamed about being 40," Stuff.co.nz quoted her as telling Vanity Fair Italy.

"I love ageing, because I like the experience that comes with age. Unfortunately, our society doesn't value that kind of thing. I always loved people older than me. I loved my grandparents," she said.

The stunning star doesn't have big plans for the next decade in her life and just hopes she continues to feel happy.

Diaz, who is regularly asked how she manages to look so fit given her age, says there is no magic secret to keeping in shape.

"I look younger than my age because I exercise daily. I have always been sporty, ever since I was 20. Fitness is part of my life. You can't practise sport once in a while. You must do it everyday. I need to practise even when I'm travelling for a job," she said.

Christina Hendricks has revealed her plan to start a swimwear line, as she can't find bathing suits to fit her boobs.

The Mad Men actress wants to design her own range of swimsuits for big-breasted women like her.

"It's really hard to find a bathing suit if you have breasts," the Sun quoted her as saying. "You either get smooshed down, or there's no support at all. I want to start my own line, with good bra support."

"My husband and I have sketched out designs," she added.

Ashley Judd lashes out at media for 'puffy face jibe'

Ashley Judd has slammed the media for jumping to conclusions and suggesting that she had undergone cosmetic surgery after her face appeared 'puffy' on a TV show.

The Frida star has written a piece for online newspaper The Daily Beast, reiterating that her appearance was the result of steroid medication for a cold and reprimanding careless journalists and bloggers who were quick to deduce that she had gone under the knife.

Calling the stories an "assault" on female body image, Judd writes, "The hypersexualisation of girls and women and subsequent degradation of our sexuality...is what this conversation allegedly about my face is really about."

And she admits she was upset to learn that many of those who stated she had "clearly had work done" were women.

"That women are joining in the ongoing disassembling of my appearance is salient," Contactmusic quoted her as writing in the article.

"This abnormal obsession with women's faces and bodies has become so normal that we (I include myself at times -- I absolutely fall for it still) have internalised patriarchy almost seamlessly. We are unable at times to identify ourselves as our own denigrating abusers, or as abusing other girls and women," she wrote.

She concludes her article by writing, "I hope the sharing of my thoughts can generate a new conversation: Why was a puffy face cause for such a conversation in the first place?. If this conversation about me is going to be had, I will do my part to insist that it is a feminist one, because it has been misogynistic from the start."

Tara Reid `sick of being asked about her plastic surgery`

Tara Reid has revealed that she is frustrated by constant questions about her plastic surgery and party girl antics.

She believes having plastic surgery is not an unusual thing as "almost everyone" has had a cosmetic procedure.

"Can I ask you something? How many women do you know who've had plastic surgery?" Reid asked an Australian journalist while being interviewed for News.com.au about her new movie, American Pie: Reunion.

"Almost everyone has. I don't know why it's such a big deal. Yeah, I had it. End of story," she said.

Reid also stated that she is sick of being asked about her nip tucks, which included a breast augmentation and botched liposuction on her stomach, according to the New York Post.

"It's annoying. It's as if I'm the only person in the world who's had it. I don't want to be a poster child for it. I've done a lot more stuff in my life than have plastic surgery," Reid continued.

Reid was similarly upset when asked about her reputation as a party girl.

"People form opinions of me that are crazy. It frustrates me, because there's more to me than that. It's like eating a cake with six layers and only touching the top one," she said.

However, Reid said that that she doesn't see anything inherently negative in the labelling.

"I don't know why a party girl is a bad thing," she continued.

"It's about having fun and being happy. Why should we punish that girl? I've never been arrested, I've never been in trouble, I've never done anything bad, so I don't get why that's a bad thing. I like to be happy, and people know that if they're around me, they're going to have fun," she added.

Salma Hayek has revealed that her businessman husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, influences her sartorial style.

The 45-year-old actress loves dressing up in designer clothes to impress Pinault and insists he is the reason she puts so much effort into looking her best.

"If you're in love with someone, you always want to conquer them anew. Even if we don't go out, I like to look nice for him," the Daily Express quoted her as telling Lucky Magazine.

"He inspires me. There are men who don't notice what you're wearing, and that's cool. But when you make an effort, Francois appreciates it so much," she said.

The Frida star admits the French billionaire, boss of PPR -- the company behind fashion houses Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Bottega Veneta -- is baffled by American trends.

"He's so funny -- we were in line at the airport somewhere in the States with these four girls in front of us, and he asks me sincerely, 'This American style, with the sweatpants and flip-flops...?' And the feminist is coming out in me and I'm like, 'They're comfortable! Is it such a sin to want to be comfortable?'," she said.

"But he says, 'If they want to be so comfortable, why do they have so much makeup on at 7am?' And he has a point: People spend all this time with makeup and then not with clothes. Why?" she added.
