Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz and Hugh Grant are among a host of stars who have been criticised for having bad posture.

DR PAUL DREW - who has been using his massage and personal training skills to service high-profile clients for 16 years - has found that far too many stars need to straighten their stance.

He says, "I often see celebrities off camera with horrific posture, slouching tummies out and heads jutting forward. And what's worse is that their poor posture has a negative influence on how kids and fans carry themselves."

Also making Drew's slouch list are Paris Hilton, Courtney Love, KIRSTEN DUNST, Richard Lewis, Benicio Del Toro, James Gandolfini and Larry King.

Among the stars noted for having an ideal stance are Charlize Theron, Sarah Jessica Parker, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Lucy Liu, Denzel Washington, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Jackson, Pierce Brosnan and Tom Cruise.
