Britney Spears: 'I Like the Salty and Sweet'

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- As the mom of two growing boys, Britney Spears admits it can be hard to stay in shape.

“I love white chocolate, and I love potato chips! I like the salty and sweet,” the “Toxic” singer and mother of sons Sean, 7, and Jayden, 6, recently told Extra. “When [the boys] come over, the snacks are constantly piling up, and I constantly have to feed them. I’m like, ‘Jesus I want fried chicken too!’”

To counter her love for junk food, Spears, 31, sticks to a workout routine.

“I really love doing yoga. I have two separate trainers that come in and we play with it. I don’t like doing the same thing all the time, but my main ritual is yoga. I do a lot of yoga,” she told Extra.

She’s showing off the results of her hard work in a teeny white bikini on the cover of the June issue of Shape magazine.

In the magazine, Spears expounds on her exercise regimen, telling the writer that she does 90 minutes of yoga twice a week, as well as hour-long cardio sessions three times a week with her trainer.

One reason she’s working so hard to stay in shape: a Las Vegas residency that will start this fall.

"The [Vegas] performances won’t be simple … a massive party from start to finish,” she told the magazine, on newsstands May 20.  “And to pull this off, I have to be in top condition and running at full speed.”

Gwyneth Paltrow and Demi Lovato 'Best Friends'

ABC/Fred Lee(NEW YORK) -- Demi Lovato has two new celebrity fans: Gwyneth Paltrow and Paltrow's daughter, Apple.

“You know, my new bestie,” joked Lovato on ABC's Good Morning America, as she tried a recipe from Paltrow’s new cookbook, It’s All Good.

“We’re best friends,” Paltrow joked back.

As fate would have it, the two were on the same flight yesterday wearing identical outfits: jeans, army jackets, white t-shirts and motorcycle boots.

Lovato, 20, was the first to spot Paltrow, 40, in the airport lounge on her flight to New York City.

“I’ve seen Contagion like, 10 times, so I was like ‘Oh, God. Oh, God’,” Lovato said.  Then Paltrow walked by her, “And I dropped dead,” she said.

Turns out, Paltrow and her 8-year-old daughter, Apple, are just as big fans.

“My daughter actually introduced me to Demi’s music.  And now we’re all big fans our house.  So I asked if I could take the picture for my daughter, who is thrilled,” she said.  Paltrow posted the photo on Twitter.

“So in return, I am releasing my album on Apple’s birthday.  May 14…Happy Birthday Apple,” said Lovato.

Lovato hung out on Good Morning America while Paltrow prepared a chicken chili recipe and talked about how the healthy diet changed her life.

“I just was traveling a lot, working a lot, I wasn’t looking after myself, I was eating, you know, a lot of cheese and wine, French fries,” said Paltrow.

Paltrow’s doctor recommended she give up foods and drinks containing alcohol, caffeine and wheat after she was feeling run down and getting a lot of headaches.

“When you have young children and you’re working, you know, you never rest…It’s like you’re racing to get home. And my body sort of went kaput a little bit. Then my doctor said you really need to clean up your diet and we’ll change all this blood work and it really worked,” she said.

After eliminating all of the ingredients he suggested from her diet, she felt fantastic.

“I lost weight, I had so much energy that I thought, I’d like to make a book that’s not as restrictive as that but that’s a little bit healthier and really, really good comfort food so you don’t feel like you’re cutting anything out. You know, that makes you feel better, lose weight and have more energy.”

Paltrow’s children followed the diet as well, including her son Moses, who has a wheat allergy. Despite receiving some criticism, Paltrow suggests people open the book and judge it for themselves.

“There’s a lot of inches of column that people need to fill. So a lot of times they just try to get attention and say things that aren’t true,” she said.

Anne Hathaway 'Living on Hummus and Radishes'

Warner Bros. Pictures(NEW YORK) -- There are diets and then there are diets.

Take, for example, actress Anne Hathaway, who in preparation to fit into her Catwoman suit for The Dark Knight Rises and play the tuberculosis-ridden prostitute Fantine in the upcoming film version of Les Miserables, the 29-year-old actress subsisted on a 500 calorie diet of radishes and hummus.

"I'm on day six of detox," she told the latest issue of Allure magazine, adding "this diet makes me break out, so I love that. Nothing like living on hummus and radishes and then be all, 'And I got a pimple. Yeah!'"

On top of that, she's been working out.

"The Catwoman suit. It was a psychological terrorist," she said. "... the suit, thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit ... it dominated my year. I went into the gym for 10 months and didn't come out."

Anne Hathaway Not on 500-Calorie-a-Day Diet for "Les Miserables"

Jim Spellman/WireImage(LONDON) -- Anne Hathaway isn't on a "miserables" diet while working on her next film.

Britain's Daily Mirror claims Hathaway is eating fewer than 500 calories per day because she was ordered by movie executives to lose 16 pounds in less than 20 days for certain scenes in Les Miserables. She plays the single mother and prostitute Fantine.

Hathaway's rep denies the report, telling E! News, "She is losing weight for the part, but not that much. Just enough for her to look more frail, as she is playing a dying prostitute. She is consuming more than 500 calories. [The tabloids] are making something of nothing, as usual."

Hathaway will be seen on the big screen this summer in The Dark Knight Rises. She plays Catwoman.
