She has also just signed on to play Beatrix Potter, the legendary author of the children's classic "Peter Rabbit" in an as-yet-untitled movie that she will also produce. She is talking with Ewan McGregor about being her leading man. I can see her in that, can't you?
Twiggy, the painfully skinny fashion icon of the Sixties who was catapulted into supermodel-dom before there was even a term for it, is back in the limelight. The waif, who has filled out nicely, turned 56 this month and celebrated her 17th anniversary with actor Leigh Lawson a few days later. She has also just replaced Janice Dickinson as a judge on Tyra Bank's TV show "America's Next Top Model." When the Twig was interviewed for the show, she said: "If you're looking for a judge to be unkind, I am not the person you want." You'll be utterly amazed to hear that this former icon does not think there is any excuse for being fat. Voluptuous is all right, but obese is beyond the pale. "The pressure on young girls to be skinny today is terrible. I was blamed for causing bad eating habits, but I always came out and said, ‘Look, I eat like a horse.' I was naturally skinny." Yeah, yeah, yeah.
