Many a time the admiration one feels for a favourite sportsman, musician or actor turns that individual into someone to look up to. Stars know this and often take to dispensing some wise words (or not) to their fans.

Balance is what is important to 53-year-old actor Michelle Pfeiffer who says that she will not rule out cosmetic enhancement in the future, but she is not a fan of plastic surgery being taken too far. “When people don’t look like themselves anymore, that’s when it’s kind of sad,” stated the star as reported by

Model Naomi Campbell has decided to help out those who have a problem with drugs and spoken out about her personal battle against cocaine. Recently on “CNBC Meets”, Campbell said, “The challenge was to go back and face things I hadn’t dealt with, [it’s] scary for anyone to look at themselves in the mirror and leave that baggage there and move forward.”

Here are some of the top tweets of the past week.

Paris Hilton

It is so annoying when airlines lose your luggage. Especially when there’s eight big suitcases of all my favourite outfits. Hope they find them.

Mugdha Godse

Failure will never overtake us if our determination to succeed is strong enough! Happy Dussehra, kill the evil inside, make new beginnings!

Farhan Akhtar

Sleep has been playing hide and seek these last few nights. It is terrible suffering from insomnia.

Shahrukh Khan

My distinction between night and day is waning. I’m having dinner at 6 am. My energy levels are still high.

Olivia Wilde

I’m going to rock out on all forms of Apple technology simultaneously through my entire flight today in honour of the big man. Type-dancing isn’t easy.

Ashley Greene

Earl Grey flavoured ice cream may be my new favourite thing — ever.

Nathan Fillion

I didn’t drink beer last night, yet it still feels like someone punched me in the face.

LeAnn Rimes

Life is all about change. Sometimes it’s painful. Some-times it’s beautiful. But most of the time it’s both.

Abhishek Bachchan

Dieting does not mean that you starve yourself. It means that you eat sensibly and correctly. Eating deep fried foods is neither correct nor sensible!

Alicia Keys

Blessings to anyone who’s lost someone they love. There have been many to show us that there is no limit to making dreams real. Now we dream bigger!

Ricky Martin

Where is the excitement going to come from? We won’t see another you in this lifetime. Thank you for everything Steve!

    That will be disappointing if Michelle goes down that path. She’s a beautiful woman at any age. I understand some light work where you don’t even notice it like Vanessa Williams.
