Paris Hilton has slammed the too-skinny stars of Hollywood — and some fans think that the comment is a thinly veiled jab at her ex-best friend Nicole Richie.
“A lot of women are too thin. But I like food too much,” the not-exactly-zaftig heiress said while promoting her new album. “I think the ones who are getting really skinny look gross."
Hilton, the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, the founder of the Hilton chain of hotels, also blasted rich kids who sponge off their parents. “A lot of my friends still don't have a job and they live at home, and have to ask their parents for everything,” Hilton told the London Guardian. “I haven't accepted money from my parents since I was 18. Since then, I've worked on my own. It feels good that I don't ever have to depend on a man or my family for anything.”
Hilton claims that her $50 million inheritance is meaningless now, because she’s made so much money in her own right, explaining, “I'm a businesswoman, a brand, an entertainer.”
Chesty dilemmaKeira Knightly is vexed that her boobs keep getting digitally enlarged for American magazines and movie posters. “I don’t have any [bleeps], so I can’t show any cleavage,” Knightly said, reports the UK’s Sky News. “Apparently they have done market research and found that women don’t want to see less than a C-cup on other women. Isn’t that crazy? So they made my [bleeps] bigger.”
Knightly was particularly appalled with the set of hooters she was given for posters promoting “King Arthur,” in which she played Guinevere. “Those things certainly weren’t mine,” she said. “I remember, we had an interesting discussion when they said, ‘We want to make them slightly larger and you’ll get approval.’ I was like, ‘Okay, fine.’ Honestly, I don’t give a [bleep].”
Notes from all overMeanwhile George Clooney’s sometimes-girlfriend Lisa Snowdon says she resisted pressure to make her boobs smaller. The 34-year old model says agencies wanted her to get breast-reducing surgery. “It was the time of the waif — when everybody wanted models who were thin and flat-chested,” Snowdon said. “My figure wasn't in. I stood my ground and said no.” ... Orlando Bloom says he hadn’t become an actor, he’d be a photojournalist covering wars ... Lindsay Lohan claims her “Just My Luck” co-star Chris Pine “was a good kisser — but he tried to bite me once.” The “Mean Girls” star also blasted rumors that she’s had her lips surgically plumped up. “That’s just bull[bleep],” she said. “I just use a lot of lip balm —honestly!”
