Gwyneth Paltrow

"For me, sleep is a major thing," the actress told Ask Dr. Brandt on Sirius XM Radio. "I don't always get it, and when I don't, I look like I've been hit by a truck."

Jennifer Lopez

J.Lo always looks flawless, even while running errands! So to what does the American Idol judge attribute her amazing complexion? “Sleep is my weapon,” Lopez said. "I try to get eight hours a night. I think what works best is sleep, water—and a good cleanser."

Mariah Carey

At one time, Carey required more sleep than a newborn. “I've got to sleep 15 hours to sing the way I want to,” she told Interview magazine in 2007. However, since giving birth to dem babies last year, we can't help but wonder how she's holding up.

Kelly Clarkson

The pop start told Self magaznie she can't seem to get a good night's rest if she's got a song or lyrics brewing in her mind. “That's why I have a hard time sleeping. A lot of those times are at night."

Lady Gaga

Given her busy schedule, we understand this pop stars sleep-anywhere tactic. "My friends tell me that I recharge like a robot," Gaga told Vogue. "Jimmy Iovine, the chairman of Interscope, actually laughs at me: Whenever I have ridden on a plane with him I have fallen asleep, and apparently I don't move. I sit in my clothes, perfectly still, head straight up, and I just sleep."

Eva Mendes

Mendes once dabbled in home goods, and now we know why. (Her line, Vida by Eva Mendes, was available exclusively through Macy's.)  "I love sleeping. If there was an Olympics for it, I'd take the gold," she said. "I'm Cuban. We love to sleep."
