But don’t get too excited, fellas: It’s for a Q&A;, and the accompanying photo is very tasteful. (The same cannot be said for the ads on the site.) Anyway, topics discussed: Lakshmi’s lack of sentimentality (“I’m like a truck driver trapped in this body”), ex-husband Salman Rushdie ("Now there is somebody who has great wit and is a great flirt”), her role in the 2001 box-office bomb Glitter (money job), and attractive people who don’t have a lot to say (“A lot of people I see in magazines or on TV bore me”). So it goes. [Playboy]
