Time to Eat Up, Twiggy: That Is, Insert Foot In Mouth

The girl that put skinny on the map is now grown up and speaking out against all the waif-like wannabes in Hollywood. Lesley Hornby, better known as "Twiggy," believes that actresses are to blame for the sudden surge in eating disorders, not models. Twiggy says:

"I think Hollywood stars are the worst perpetrators. Most models are naturally long and gangly, while a lot of these young girls in Hollywood have gone on extreme diets. Their concave chests and bony arms are terrifying. It's scary to think that normal teenagers are tempted to copy them."

In other news, two "naturally long and gangly" models recently died due to malnourishment, triggering some countries, such as Spain, to ban size zero models from their runways. This is a curious resolve, considering that the problem resides in Hollywood, not on the runway.
