Celebrity Hangover Cures -- Fact or Fiction?

While the experts recommend moderation and lots of water when it comes to battling hangovers, Hollywood stars have their own ways of dealing with the morning after the night before. But just how effective are they?

The Secret Agent Special

James Bond star Daniel Craig makes sure he's not shaken or stirred the next morning by hitting the gym hard and sweating out all those nasty toxins.

Fact or Fiction?: Going to the gym, as with anything that is going to dehydrate you more, is not a good idea. Some exercise is good but vigorous workouts should be avoided. Do some more gentle exercise like a stroll around the block or a walk to the shops.
