Gandhi's Inspirational Guide Is ... Britney?

Sir Ben Kingsley, the four-time Oscar nominee, told our cameras that he begins every day by singing the Britney Spears song, "Gimme More." Isn't that one of the signs of the apocalypse?

The "Sexy Beast" star was leaving Mr. Chow last night when our cameraman asked him about Britney, to which he responded, "She's my role model, an inspiration. I know every morning, people have morning mantras -- and my morning mantra is 'Gimme, gimme, gimme. Gimme, gimme, gimme.' It starts my day."

Britney's reach knows no bounds.
