Justin Bieber, Rosario Dawson lead pack of celebrities taking up "planking"

Los Angeles, CA, United States (Celebrity News Service) - Some of your favorite celebrities are on the straight and narrow. No, they haven't just left rehab (or have they?). There's an even more ridiculous craze that's taken over Hollywood: planking.

Yes, the stupidest trend to hit tinseltown (and youth and social networking sites everywhere) is the act of lying down completely straight, like a plank of wood, on top of random objects, then snapping a pic for all the world to see.

It's followers include Justin Bieber, who planked on a boat, Katy Perry, who did it on a yacht, and Chris Brown on a circular wall fixture.

Rosario Dawson, bless her, might have outdone her famous planking co-horts, having shown her skills now on both "Chelsea Lately" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live" while promoting her new movie "The Zookeeper." She even planked on an elephant.

"I just discovered it last week," Dawson told Chelsea Handler while on her show. "You lay face down and you have your hands at your sides and you point your toes."

Other famous plankers include Kristen Bell (on a railing), Ellen Page (traffic cone), Nick Cannon, Lloyd, and more.

We understand the rich-and-famous trends like nude photo leaks and DUIs, but this planking thing has got us stumped.
