I really like Maggie Gyllenhaal - you can imagine her with hairy armpits, spot cream, and cellulite. Unlike Victoria Beckham who claims to be a girls girl (sheah right!), Gyllenhaal really is one. She's so cool that you can almost forgive her the whole Heidi plait thing she had going a while back.
Re. the response to the Julia Roberts pictures, I'd like to blame it on men, and how they have these double standards - being all hairy and sometimes sweaty themselves, yet giving us a hard time if we do the same. But knowing our healthy firmly instilled sense of self-loathing, I reckon the biggest objectors to Julia's furriness were probably women. I mean, how could she let the team down that way? Shocking.
In the 2006 December Heat annual, they asked a few celebs how they approach their grooming down there and most of the women were into Hollywood (all off) or Brazilian waxes. I'd totally do it again if they put me under anaesthetic that is, but for some strange inexplicable reason, I haven't found a salon willing to do this. If you do, let me know.
