Amanda Seyfried spends HOW MUCH on moisturizer!?

I don’t know why, but I’m always interested in what celebrities use on their faces (honestly and truly, not just what they’re PAID to say they use – I’m talking to you, Fergie) and how much it costs to buy it.

While some celebrities insist on cheaper skincare routines (like Emma Stone’s $5 beauty tip), there are some celebrities who shell out thousands of dollars per month (ahem Jennifer Aniston) to keep their money-makers looking perfect.

Rumor has it Amanda Seyfried drops quite a chunk of change on her own beauty products. The actress has been shilling Cle de Peau’s beauty products for years, and now we’re getting an idea of what it costs her to keep up this expensive habit.

The Japanese skincare company is about to release a moisturizer “La Creme” that will cost $13,000. The crystal-encrusted 50 gram jar will be available at Barney’s. $13,000 too much? Well, you can buy a cheaper version that will set you back $775.

The premium version is believed to be the most expensive beauty cream in the world, which probably explains why Cle de Peau is only producing 3 jars of the pricey moisturizer to coincide with the product line’s 30th anniversary. The brand will be taking orders from their Tokyo headquarters starting August 30, but we’re guessing you wont be able to sample this one at Barneys before you commit.

So here’s the question…. if you had plenty of money to spend…. would you drop $775 on moisturizer?

Jada Pinkett Smith: “I don’t eat for pleasure”

So THAT’S what I’m doing wrong!!

Jada Pinkett Smith, 40,  has revealed how she stays so tiny. She’s sacrificed the joy of food to maintain her small frame.

The wife of Will Smith tells Essence magazing, “I don’t eat for pleasure.”

“[I] had the only West Indian grandmother that could not cook,” she explains.

“She was an awful cook, and she taught me that you don’t eat for taste, you eat for nourishment. And I have kept that over the years, so I can eat anything that’s healthy.”

The Madagascar 3 star does treat herself to French fries and pizza – but only allows it on rare occasions.

She adds: ‘I eat for my schedule so I have to eat high-protein, lots of greens and healthy carbs so that I don’t fall flat on my face.’

Jada, whose two children Willow, 11, and Jaden, 13, have both followed their parents into showbusiness, is planning to star in a movie with her husband Will, 43.

She says: “He can’t wait. He was like, “You and me, next.” I was like…. “Let’s do it!”‘

Will, of course, has been busy promoting the third installment of his hugely successful Men in Black franchise.

The couple, who have been married since 1997, have denied rumours they are heading for divorce.

That’s it – I’m giving up the joy of eating.
