9 Celebs We'd Want to Hold Us Down for a Bikini Wax

Gwyneth Paltrow turns to Cameron Diaz. Who would you pick?

Oh Gwyneth. The well-heeled spewer of sound bytes has given us another gem, this time in the form of her comment to an Austrailian radio station. "Every time I get a bikini wax, Cameron Diaz has to hold me down," said Paltrow. Really, Gwynnie? Every single time? It's a wonder Diaz is able to hold down a career, given all the hours she's logging in pinning Paltrow to the waxing table!

While we're hoping we've heard the last about the hair—or lack thereof—in the vicinity of Ms. Paltrow's lady parts for a while, her remark did get us thinking: Who would we want to hold us down in the waxing room and why? Here's who we came up with...

This one's obvious. He's been there, done that. He knows the drill.

With Kate's famous discretion, we're sure our personal business would stay that way.

If anyone understands the importance of a great bikini wax, it's Bey.

She's so zen, we're sure she'd come up with some sublimely philosophic things to say to comfort us. Worst case scenario: She'd just keep saying "Au-stral-ia!" over and over.

Jennifer Aniston

Her gorgeous, flowing hair would distract us from the seemingly painful task at hand.

He'd make it all about him, but maybe that could lessen our own pain? "Imma let you finish, but Kim Kardashian has the most hairless bikini line…"

Reese Witherspoon

We know homegirl can speak up to authority if anything goes wrong.

She's well known for being a no-nonsense type—someone like her would be good to have on hand in a sticky (ahem) situation.

Britney Spears

Britney knows a thing or two about removing all your hair, her moral support would be invaluable.
