Liz Hurley revealed in an interview this month that, if she were a man, she would want to sleep with Victoria Beckham. Geri Halliwell recently confessed to a lesbian fling, then announced: "If I was a guy, I'd wanna do Britney." Drew Barrymore has said that she thinks fellow Charlie's Angel Lucy Liu has a bottom like "a delicious peach". And then there's Stella McCartney, who periodically appears hand in hand with her friend Gwyneth Paltrow, causing eyes and flashbulbs to pop simultaneously.
