JENNIFER ANISTON, ANGELINA JOLIE and DREW BARRYMORE are among a long list of
celebrities living fictional lives in a new mystery novel by director STEVEN
SODERBERGH’s wife JULES ASNER.
Asner, a former model and TV correspondent, has created a parallel universe
in her upcoming tome entitled Whacked – which follows a fictional character as
she seeks revenge on a cheating boyfriend and mingles with real-life stars.
Her characters make controversial observations about Barrymore, who is “about
to expire like spoiled milk” and Angelina Jolie: “God doesn’t really make
size-zero women with size-36C bustlines, right?”
Asner insists she didn’t ask stars’ permission to include them in the book –
and isn’t worried about a backlash.
She tells the New York Daily News, “I didn’t ask permission. Maybe I should
have! I know Ryan (Seacrest) – I don’t think he’d be bothered. And Jen
(Aniston) is the sweetest, nicest person in the world. I’d only mention her in
a great capacity.”
