Jamie Oliver - Jamie Oliver Hits Out Over Weight Jibe
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver turned the air blue at a press conference in Australia on Wednesday (07Mar12) when he was quizzed over his weight.
The British cook was answering questions from the media during a promotional trip to Sydney when he clashed with a journalist following a comment about his expanding waistline.
Asked if he's piled on the pounds since his last trip Down Under, the kitchen wizard snapped, "I don't know. I think the last time I had a filling in my teeth, which was quite recently, I was in good nick (condition). But really, I am not really sure. Are you from a tabloid? Thanks for noticing, you b**ch."
Oliver has famously waged war against obesity in the U.S. and his native U.K., launching a highly publicised scheme to improve school lunches.
