“When I was young, everybody on screen was gorgeous," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling Hello magazine. “I have to say, there aren"t that many good looking actresses around today. I mean, there"s Angelina Jolie and there"s... Angelina Jolie. Jennifer Aniston is cute, but I wouldn"t call her beautiful. She"s no Ava [Gardner] or Lana [Turner]," she added.
Collins, 77, also suggested that part of Cheryl Cole"s success and transformation into the nation"s sweetheart is down to the fact she is beautiful. “I think that is why Cheryl Cole is so popular, because she is just so pretty and the public are starved of gorgeous people," she added.
