11. Sarah Michelle Gellar (1998)

In the issue Sarah spoke about some of the initial lack of enthusiasm from the network about Buffy, saying, "You try being on a midseason replacement show on the WB called Buffy the Vampire Slayer and see how much respect you get."


13. Cameron Diaz (1996)

Cameron admits in the interview that she didn’t know she was working on a high-profile movie when filming The Mask, halfway through filming she asked, “Is there any place my friends and family can see this movie?”

14. Jessica Alba (2005)

"The scripts I get are always for the whore, or the motorcycle chick in leather, or the horny maid ... I don't think this is happening to Natalie Portman," Jessica complained to the magazine.

15. Angelina Jolie (1999)

This was Angelina’s first cover and it was just as her career was taking off. Inside Rolling Stone got it right when they called her “Hollywood’s next great bombshell.”


19. Gisele Bündchen (2000)

"I don't wear transparent," Gisele told the magazine. "If the designers ask me to wear see-through, I say no. I simply won't do it. I don't feel comfortable about people seeing my nipples."

20. Rosario Dawson and Rose McGowan (2007)

Rosario revealed that in order to get the shot right, "She [Rose] actually had to be on an apple box to make sure that our butts touched and our shoulders touched."


25. Britney Spears (2003)

Rolling Stone posed the question: Do people still care about the music? Or is she becoming more famous for stunts [her VMA Kiss with Madonna] like this?

"I'm not gonna come out on this record [In the Zone] and show my crotch or anything," Britney responded. "That's not me. I would never do anything like that. It's all in the way you do stuff, all in the way you carry things. The music is most important to me."

Honorable mention: Carrie Fisher dressed as Princess Leia in the slave bikini (1983).

"For Rolling Stone’s 1983 summer double issue, Aaron Rapoport staged a lighthearted beach romp with a fuzzy Ewok, a tusked Gamorrean Guard, the evil Darth Vader and, in a now-notorious revealing metal bikini, Carrie Fisher working it as every early-Eighties adolescent boy’s dream, Princess Leia Organa. Fisher’s accompanying Q&A is hilarious."
