In a recent interview, Tara Reid eagerly insists to OK! Magazine that she’s not too thin nor is she anorexic. Tara says she’s being hated on for anything she does no matter what the outcome. Also, she’s not an alcoholic. She just likes to drink on occasion. A lot.
Tara also points out that, no matter what shape she’s in, she can’t seem to please anyone. “I was thin for a movie that I just finished [the upcoming horror film Vipers]. Now they’re going to see me and say I’m too fat because I’ve gained 10 pounds… I can’t win!”
The actress also wants to let people know that she’s not exactly the person the tabloids would have you believe she is. “I don’t like going out every single night,” she tells OK!. “I like to hang with friends and eat and sit next to a fire – that to me is the best night.”
As for the constant criticism of her alleged party-girl lifestyle, Tara asks, “What have I ever really done? Dance on a table? Who doesn’t drink with their friends and have a good time? I don’t understand why people punish others for being happy.
“If I have a drink in my hand, it doesn’t make me an alcoholic. If I want a glass of wine, I want a glass of wine. I shouldn’t be afraid of it because of what the media might say. Anything you do, you’re screwed. That’s the lesson I’ve learned.”
No, drinking in moderation doesn’t make you an alcoholic. But, when 80% of your pictures are of you stumbling around drunk and your idea of a good time involves waking up naked in McDonald’s with a bunch of fries stuffed in your mouth, then you might have a problem.
P.S. Never wear a bathing suit again. For the sake of the children and, most importantly, my eyes. I need them. They make me pretty.
