Spears' clothes to go on sale.

LOS ANGELES: It seems almost everybody wants a piece of Britney Spears, and at least six pieces are officially for sale.

Spears' wardrobe from her guest-starring stint on the CBS television comedy How I Met Your Mother will be sold at an online auction to benefit the Natural Resources Defence Council, an environmental organissation.

The weeklong auction begins tomorrow night, just after the episode featuring the pop star is set to air. Spears plays a flirty receptionist who falls for the show's main character.

A half-dozen Spears-worn items will be available, including a navy print Juicy Couture dress, a yellow Nannette Lepore dress and a cream Nannette Lepore cardigan with blue flower details. CBS and 20th Century Fox Television, which produces the show, are sponsoring the auction.

Jamie goes shirtless

NEW YORK: Actress Jamie Lee Curtis went shirtless to pose for AARP The Magazine. Curtis is shown sporting gray hair and wading in water up to her chest on the cover of the magazine's May/June issue, which will be available tomorrow. The star of True Lies, A Fish Called Wanda and other films becomes eligible for membership in AARP, the nonprofit organisation for people 50 and over, when she celebrates her birthday November 22. "I want to be older," she tells the magazine. "I actually think there's an incredible amount of self-knowledge that comes with getting older. I feel way better now than I did when I was 20. I'm stronger, I'm smarter in every way, I'm so much less crazy than I was then," says Curtis, who is a mother of two children.

Florez turns chef
