    Clipping Mask question

      For example in illustrator CS2 I have a photo of someone and I want to make a Star shape mask of the head. No I normally select both the photo and the star shape and go to Object>Clipping Mask>Make.
      And it works fine, it masked out the bits that I don't want perfectly, but I still get the highlight/outline edge of the shape of the original photo when I select the star shape, how can I do this so that when I make a clipping mask it will not show the original shape of the photo?
      I think I've managed to do this once before in the past but forgot how I did it.
      Hope that makes sense, thank you very much in advance.
