"It was a stretch for me - literally a stretch as I had to gain 20lbs to play this character it was fantastic! I have been on a diet since 1974 so this was time for me to eat. God I love to eat, chips and crisps and puddings. Oh, it was amazing!"
I think it's a bit disingenuous to blather on to a famously leftie publication about how Hollywood treats her badly as a woman who has rejected the call to be stick thin and unnaturally youthful and at the same time absolutely conform to those values on a prime-time entertainment show.
