Actress says she won't bow to pressure to lose weight


Anna Friel has slammed Hollywood’s fixation with body size.

The former Brookside actress says she was even told by a film producer to eat fewer doughnuts.

‘I told him he could have me or a model without a brain. The obsession with weight today is just incredible. Curves have gone out of the window and I don’t understand it,’ she tells Hot TV.

And although Anna, 31, has been a huge hit Stateside with Pushing Daisies, she is determined to remain true to herself.

‘I think it’s really important to hold on to who you really are,’ she says. ‘I’m not going to let this new success change me.’
