New York, NY --
A while back, SHAPE magazine announced the launch of its first ever "celebrity" issue, entitled SHAPE presents Fit Hollywood, which will be on newsstands October 16, 2001. Featuring interviews with Janet Jackson (who appears on the cover), Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson and "Survivor II's" Colby Donaldson and other famous faces, this special issue reveals secrets of the stars including Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna and more in their public journey to a balanced mind, body and spirit.
Jennifer Lopez (above) was selected by Shape Magazine to be on their 20 hottest celebrities on the planet for her shapely butt.
In an exclusive cover story interview, four-time Grammy Award winner Janet Jackson gets candid about her fantastic new shape and her rigorous exercise regime.
Janet reveals that three days of abs, five to six days of cardiovascular and two days of upper body and legs have required immense discipline to keep in shape. However, it's all a part of keeping on track to becoming who she wants to be. "When I finally make up my mind that I want to do something, it's never been hard for me to do. I've always been very disciplined," says Janet.
Also featured in this special issue are SHAPE presents Fit Hollywood's picks for the 20 hottest celebrities on the planet--from Britney Spears to Tyrese--where the stars reveal their secrets to achieving a healthy mind, body and soul.
These 10 men and 10 women personify the SHAPE philosophy of physical, mental and spiritual strength. Though some choices are expected, SHAPE presents Fit Hollywood also sought an eclectic mix of rising stars and other
offbeat favorites from film, television and music.

Ferguson responds, "Right now I am happier than I've ever been," she says beaming. "Yet, I also have a long way to go. I wish I could get rid of my saddlebags and trot down the beach in a black thong bikini without a care, but I don't think that's going to happen!"
