Vanessa Marcil, Matt Dallas and Rob Lowe Vanessa Marcil, Matt Dallas and Rob Lowe

As the old year gives way to the new, TV Guide resolved to get the scoop on some celebrities' New Year's resolutions — and here is what we found out.

Rob Lowe, Brothers & Sisters
"I always make one resolution, and I haven't come up with it yet [as of early December]. Last year's was to be more aware of how I speak to people, whether it's my kids, my wife or coworkers. It's always a self-betterment thing, something that I can do to change myself in a good way, and that I will actually be able to do on a long-term basis."

Jack Coleman, Heroes
"I'm going to work on being more disciplined, because now there are a lot more demands on my time. And on getting everything done that I'm trying to get done, because there's always a lot of stuff that I'm working on. I worked until 3 in the morning last night and somehow got up at 7 to get my daughter to school. I'm a little blurry now, but that's my life."

Matt Dallas, Kyle XY
"You know what I need to do? I need to get to the gym next year. I want to start eating better, too. I want, overall, to be a little bit healthier. I want to be a little more at peace with myself. Marguerite [MacIntyre, who plays Nicole Trager on Kyle XY] made me take a few yoga classes. It centers you and puts you in a much better place. I want to take a yoga class at least a couple of times a week."

Jennifer Elise Cox, 10 Items or Less, Lovespring International
"My resolution is to get on a series that lasts more than six episodes!"

Megan Mullally
"I started eating ice cream, and I better cut that out or it is going to get ugly."

Michael Maloney, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
"I want to do more personal travel. After crisscrossing America for the show, I want to see Australia, Europe and some accommodations more lavish than that bus."

Team Kentucky, The Amazing Race 10
Mary: "My New Year's resolution, and this time I really mean it, is to lose weight. When I found out I was going to be on the Race I only had a little time to prepare, so I went into overdrive with the exercise, and I kind of wore myself out. I don't care about being skinny; I just want to be normal me. I know that for my health and for the future and my kids, I need to lose weight and keep it off."
David: I quit smoking before I went on the Race, but since I've gotten back I might smoke 10 a day. Maybe I will completely quit now. I think that could be my resolution."

Dolly Parton
"I am like everybody — I make 'em and break 'em. I try to always say I am going to do better, try harder to be a better person, like we all do."

And last, but never least:

Vanessa Marcil, Las Vegas
"To try to love people when they are unlovable, including myself — and/or to start dating girls!"
