Hollywood's Newest Fad Diet

Stars join anti-war hunger strike:

Hollywood stars Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon are to join a fast protesting against the Iraq war.

Protestors will each give up food for 24 hours, with the "rolling fast" due to last until International Peace Day on 21 September.

The protest has been organised by CodePink, a woman's anti-war group who are concerned at the loss of life on both sides of the Iraq conflict.

Other celebrities due to take part include Willie Nelson and Danny Glover.

Around 150 protestors began the fast outside the White House on Tuesday morning, including leading anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, whose son died in Iraq.

Oscar-winner Penn is one of Hollywood's most vocal stars over the issue of war in Iraq.

He visited the country in 2002 and 2003, meeting politicians, visiting a water treatment plant and touring a children's hospital.

This is the lamest thing I've ever seen. A "rolling fast"? What the hell is that? The rest of us do it all the time...its called "skipping meals". I've done it today already: instead of eating breakfast, I blogged about baseball. Instead of lunch, I've chatted with a gorgeous calendar model from Mexico.

No, wait, I've changed my mind. Really I'm on a rolling hunger strike, protesting until...um...well, pick one from the list:
