It’s tough being a celeb. The fame, the fortune and the red-carpet treatment is all right in it’s way but then there are the paparazzi – the ‘paps’ – who dog your every move and the flog the snaps to the highest paying tabloid. And for us mere mortals, it’s nice to know that even the likes of Maria Sharapova hates to be snapped unawares.
The last time Shazza had so much as an ounce of excess body fat, she was still in nappies. She is 6ft 2ins tall with legs that go all the way up to her earlobes and has the body of a super-fit athlete. Most women would sell their first born to look like her. And yet when she went of holiday with a couple of mates and got papped as she came back from a swim in the sea, she was mortified. She didn’t blame the snapper (it’s his job, after all) – no, she was just horrified by how she looked in the picture. She thought she looked so fat that she looked like she had swallowed a lobster.
So, it’s good to know that even the drop-dead stunning celebs are just like us. They may be richer, taller and better looking but they still worry that their bum looks big in that photo…. oh, and even if you are the great Shazza, you can’t help but get sand stuck in your unmentionables when you are the beach….
