Angelina Jolie and Britney Spears have been named as hot babes with ugly legs! Yes, you read it right. A particularly critical piece by the Times of India- a leading Asian publication entitled 'Hot babes with ugly legs' has added some Hollywood and Bollywood stars, who according to them have got ugly legs. The piece from the daily has sparked outrage for body shaming.
Well this came as a shock because Angelina Jolie who is a UN ambassador and an Oscar-winning actress is well known for her toned legs. We can't forget how she pulled out a right leg stint at Oscars 2012 Red Carpet in the black Versace gown.
"This Oscar winner is seen as the epitome of style and grace," the TOI website described Angelina Jolie's legs. "But her skinny arms and legs with bulging elbows and knees defy her style diva image. Her knees, in particular, could surely use some meat," it further read.
Louise Court, Editor-in-Chief of British women's magazine Cosmopolitan, was horrified by the piece. "This Times of India article actually made my jaw drop - which I should probably add, in the spirit of things, could do with more definition and was cushioned as it hit the desk by a bit of a double chin," she tells The Independent.
Apart from Angelina Jolie, the list also included 'Gimme More' singer, Britney Spears. "Those muscular legs would look more at home at the wrestling ring!" it reads on the subject of Britney Spears' limbs. That is not all. Katie Holmes was also included in the list. Cute and Pretty Katie according to the piece, "may be skinny on top, but has rather thick legs with muscular calves." However, after being criticised, the original source has been deleted now.
Seems like the daily is getting into some serious criticism as it also mentioned names like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. A few days back, the daily was in news for controversial cleavage show article on Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone.
