Berry: 'Most Beautiful' list not easy to make

NEW YORK -- For the seventh time, Halle Berry is on People magazine's annual list of the "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" -- but making it there repeatedly isn't easy.

The 34-year-old actress, who's on the cover of the issue that comes out Friday, says she works out daily with a treadmill and weights, and maintains a strict diet of chicken, fish, vegetables, brown rice and tabbouleh.

"I'm not obsessive, like I have to have the best butt or the best abs, but I like the idea of feeling strong and healthy," says Berry, who co-stars in the upcoming "X-Men" sequel.

"It's important to feel good about myself physically. It's something I think about."

Julia Roberts is on the "Most Beautiful" list for a record eighth time.

Mr. T has no pity for Best Buy, files lawsuit

LOS ANGELES -- Mr. T has sued Best Buy Co. Inc., claiming the nation's largest electronics store didn't have permission to use his likeness in a print ad.

The tough-guy actor, born Laurence Tureaud, is seeking unspecified monetary damages in the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The lawsuit claims the ads are devaluing a "unique persona that (he) developed for (more than) 20 years and is of great economic value to him."

Tureaud, 52, is best known for his roles on the NBC series "The A-Team" in the 1980s and as boxer Clubber Lang in "Rocky III." He survived a bout with cancer in 1991 and most recently was featured in commercials for a collect-call phone service.

Best Buy said Wednesday that the company doesn't comment on pending litigation.
