The Racy In Literacy Contest: Send In Your Sexy Reading Photos, Win Books

Unlike Kim Kardashian, she did not go the classy route and sell the exclusive right to publish the pictures to People for $2.5 million, but luckily for those with an unhealthy Coppola fixation, there were some paps hiding out in the bushes. Here are a few of their snaps. More »
