Oxygen Tanks, Tom Hanks and MTV Awards

Britney Spears has many demands, but when she is staying at a hotel while on tour she has some interesting ones indeed.

Among her requests: a room that has “never” been smoked in, humidifiers in all areas, a selection of current magazines, fresh flowers she’ll arrange herself, chick-lit novels, DVDs of Marilyn Monroe movies, 100-watt light bulbs, running routes for Hyde Park and more. She won’t need special pillows because she bring her own. And one more thing: Security will sleep outside her room.

She also recently decided she wanted to shell out $30K on an oxygen chamber.

“Since her Vancouver gig, where she ran off stage as it was too smoky, she’s become paranoid about breathing in too much bad air,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. “She’s keen on an oxygen chamber that will reverse any smoke inhalation damage.”

Spears isn’t the only star to indulge in the the expensive gadget – Madonna, Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson all own one.

Tom Hanks has declared he is finally confident about his acting ability.

“I no longer feel insecure about my acting. Early on I took any job that was offered, milking it for the money,” said the double Oscar-winner.

“I had no idea what I was doing – that’s when insecurity and self-loathing start.”

The 52-year-added that he has also thrown away his vanity.

“After a while you have to give up being vain. In [new film] Angels And Demons I have to wear a Speedo to go swimming,” Hanks told Britain’s Radio Times.

“It takes a real man to slap on a Speedo and say, ‘I’m ready for work.'”
