Runway Model
Despite her willowy 5'10" frame, Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen definitely doesn't subsist on sugar-free Red Bull and breath mints. "My favorite foods are steak and French fries. Two years ago I started eating some salads," says Bündchen, 24. "But I like meat." Her fitness regimen is pretty low-maintenance too. "I would never go to a gym. It's horrible and boring," she says. "But I travel to a lot of airports, so I try to run from one terminal to the next. That's pretty much [how I've exercised] every day for the last 10 years."

Russian Blessing
Tom Hanks's animated holiday movie The Polar Express may be about a North Pole train, but the actor's fondest Christmas memories involve a bus. "The day we'd get out of school, I always took Greyhound to my mom's house," says Hanks, 48, whose parents split when he was 5. "I'd have a stack of comic books, hoping to sit next to some nice old lady passing out banana bread, which happened quite often." The actor still prefers to keep his holiday simple. "I subscribe to a Russian tradition about a guy who leaves you a pear if you're good and a switch if you're bad." So which does he end up with? Says Hanks: "I've had my share of pears."

Fenway Lark
Massachusetts native Denis Leary is still, well, leery about his Red Sox winning the World Series. "I'm waiting for the other shoe to fall," says Leary, 47, who hosts his Bash for New York's Bravest to benefit the Leary Firefighters Foundation Nov. 8. "I'm making sure some legal team isn't coming to say, 'No, we found a loophole—it's all been a dream.' " But once it sinks in, the Rescue Me star will gladly show his gratitude. "I'll clean [the players'] cars for six months and Manny Ramirez's apartment for a year," says Leary. "Then I'll sneak into Fenway with [a pal] and run around naked."

Diaper Gag
A few things have changed for Roseanne Barr since she last did stand-up. "I had a hysterectomy. I'm feeling better, but trying to control the chin hairs and the hormonal changes of becoming more of a man—[like] getting a beard and wanting to bomb everybody," says the comedian, 52, who's appearing at the New York Comedy Festival in Manhattan Nov. 9. "I was nervous at first, but it's getting funner. After a show I'm with my family, just eating cheesecake. I think about that the whole time I'm performing—I can't wait to get to the cake." So how does she avoid nerves onstage? Says Barr: "I strap on the Depends."
