London: Voluptuous British Television cook Nigella Lawson while admitting she worries about her weight, has said that she did not want to be seen as an example of someone looking fat and ugly on the beach.
“Any woman who says, ‘I have never worried about my weight’, or, ‘I have never gone on a diet’, is lying,” a newspaper quoted her as saying.
“There are times when I want to lose weight. I suppose the difference is I don’t want to be as thin. Greed always outweighs my vanity,” she said.
Lawson, who was recently pictured in a burkini, on Bondi Beach in Australia, said she was ‘beyond embarrassment’ when the photographs emerged.
She insisted she wore the garment because she was ‘sun-phobic’ and became bored of having to reapply sunscreen constantly.
“If you’re being used as an example of someone looking fat and ugly on the beach no one feels good. It would have been a lot worse had I been in a bikini,” the 51-year-old added.
