Thandie Slams Celebs

The fame game can grate on some celebs.
Surely it should be about talent rather than posh frocks?
Thandie Newton has hit out at the flim-flam side of stardom.
She said: "Celebrity these days is just about wearing something plunging on the red carpet.
"There's such a hunger for fast-food celebrity. When you ask a kid these days what they want to be they say, 'I want to be famous.'
"That didn't happen when we were little. You wanted to be famous for a reason."
While the Crash star is no stranger to stylish garb herself, she blames attention-grabbing clothing for the rise of the fame-for-fame's sake celeb status.
Miss Newton went on: "I think Liz Hurley wearing that Versace dress (to the Four Weddings premiere in 1994) started it all but anyone can wear a gorgeous dress."
Aahh, how refreshing her words are to our ears.
