Honestly, Nicole Richie.
This Nylon article about Nicole Richie made me like her. Obviously I don’t mean that in a “the magazine CUT me until I bled allegiance to the Skeletwin!” way. No. But, I like her honesty, her bluntness, and the fact that she’s somewhat unapologetic.
No, I do not recommend driving the wrong way down the 134 freeway after you’ve taken Vicodin. But here are some snippets of the story:
On drugs: “When I pictured heroin I pictured some crazy crack head with no shoes under a bridge,” she says, with a chuckle. “You never think it’s going to be you. And it never was. I was never under a bridge, and I always had shoes. But, of course, that’s not what a drug problem is. You have that visual of it being really dirty, and here it’s so glamorized and it doesn’t seem that bad because you’re at a nice house party. But it is.”On her weight: “That was one thing where I actually tried to stand up for myself and say, ‘If you think I have this problem just let me tell you that I don’t,’ she says. “I didn’t want someone that doesn’t know me that is struggling with an eating disorder thinking that because I have a problem, it’s OK. I’ve never gone a day without putting food in my mouth. I’ve never sewn my mouth shut. I’ve never gone on a liquid diet. So I want to know why I’m the face for a problem.”
On having no regrets: “Look, I’m 25 years old. I make mistakes, people make mistakes. People go through things emotionally, especially girls. I’m very happy with my life and I wouldn’t take back any mistake I made because it’s made me who I am today. I don’t walk around pretending that I’m perfect, so I don’t think anyone else should hold me to that and not expect me to f*ck up occasionally. Because I do, and you do, too. I live a very honest life and I’m very happy with the way I’m leading it.”
