Celebrity: Mommie weirdest
Celebrity mothers have it hard. Not only are their birthing methods scrutinised but their post-pregnancy bodies are debated endlessly and their choice of baby names mocked.
Give them a break! They're just trying to enjoy those precious first few months with their latest arrival, negotiating the ups and downs of motherhood just like any other new parent. But then one of them goes and does something so weird, so unconventional, so celebby that it really makes you wonder if they aren't from another planet after all.
Earlier this week, Mad Men actress January Jones divulged to People magazine that she fought off tiredness when she started back on set by popping vitamin pills made from her own dehydrated placenta. ("It's not witchcrafty or anything!")
Then we had Alicia Silverstone post a video on her blog The Kind Life (think Goop without the £800 handbag endorsements) of her chewing up food before passing it directly into her son's mouth, like a bird. The Clueless actress claimed, "It's his favourite... and mine. He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I'm eating." As Cher Horowitz, Silverstone's most famous role, would say: "Ew, as if!"
