A lavish restaurant is controversially exhibiting photographs of revealing rubbish stolen from the garbage bins of celebrities including Madonna, MEL GIBSON, Tom Cruise, Marlon Brando, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Michael Jackson.

The New York-based restaurant LE BERNARDIN will be exhibiting the shocking photos - worth $6,000 (GBP3,251) each - by famous French photographers PASCAL ROSTAIN and BRUNO MOURON from 16 June until 16 July (04).

After viewing photos of the stars' discarded pizza and cereal boxes, chef ERIC RIPERT says, "I thought we'd find that more of them would be on the ATKINS diet."
