A twist on the old 'don't read your reviews, weigh them...'
With the Leveson Inquiry having hosted half of Britain's celebrities to denounce their treatment at the hands of the press, the murmurs of celeb discontent are drifting westward. Namely, Avengers star Scarlett Johansson who took to The Huffington Post to complain about tabloids' obsession with her (and others') weight loss.
Indeed, Johansson's broadside is actually a brilliant riposte at the idea of her losing lots of weight to play Avengers' Black Widow: "If I were to lose 14 pounds, I'd have to part with both arms. And a foot."
Scarlett follows the lead of Ashley Judd, who used The Daily Beast to lambast journalists who'd used her "puffy face" (from taking medications) as evidence she'd "had work done". Both will be dead certs when Lord Justice Leveson announces his much-anticipated American spin-off.
