I think we would all agree that Salma Hayek is one of the most beautiful women alive. But according to her interview in the latest issue of Lucky, she wasn’t always a swan. I know, how is that even possible? She claims that when she was a young, struggling actress in LA she battled with bad acne and extra weight. “You want to talk about bad skin? I had acne. And this acne was so bad, it sent me into a severe, severe depression. Like I couldn’t leave the house. I’d wake up in the morning and lie there and touch my face before I got up, just to prepare myself to look in the mirror! … The next stage with that sort of depression is food: too little, or too much … I was fat and broken out, I couldn’t leave the house and I couldn’t pay the rent!” I’m sure she speaks the truth, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at her.

Lionel Richie, father of Nicole and singer of soulful ballads, looked positively jubilant onstage at the MGM Grand for the “Lionel Richie and Friends” concert.

It’s been a busy couple of years for Michael Fassbender (and his penis). I’m not one to harbor a hardcore celebrity crush, but ever since Fassy took on the role of Carl Jung (with whom I’m obsessed) in “A Dangerous Method,” I was intrigued. And then I saw “Shame,” and I was blown away by his many gifts and talents. I’m talking about his chilling portrayal of Brandon, not his full-frontal nude scene. Although, he was riveting naked. Being that today is his 35th birthday, I felt totally justified in putting together a gratuitous slideshow of sexy pictures of him, along with a list of reasons that justify my crush. Starting with:
1. This is what he looks like wearing nothing but bed sheets.
