Former "Dynasty" star Joan Collins pulled no punches in her assessment of current female celebrities like Kate Winslet and Keira Knightley in an interview with the (London) Daily Telegraph published Monday.
Collins, 78, made news last fall after telling Hello! magazine that "there aren't that many good looking actresses around today" other than Angelina Jolie, and that "the public are starved of gorgeous people." She said Jennifer Aniston was "cute, but I wouldn't call her beautiful."
Shown a photo of actress Kate Winslet by the Telegraph, Collins said, "Oh, that's a dreadful dress. The worst dress. And ghastly shoes and an awful hairstyle."
When Collins was asked her opinion of 26-year-old British actress Keira Knightley, she replied, "Well, she's thin."
She went on to say that 21-year-old singer Adele "has a terrible hairpiece," that model Kate Moss is "not Linda Evangelista" and that she "can't believe" actress Carey Mulligan was cast as Eliza Doolittle in an upcoming remake of "My Fair Lady."
Collins did praise former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham. "Oh I love Victoria Beckham," she told the Telegraph. "You've finally found someone I like."
