London, Apr 27 : English model Sophie Dahl has blasted "stick-thin starlets" for inspiring others to diet.
Dahl, 31, who is very curvaceous, and had been a size 14 when she began modelling aged 19, warned people not to follow the "paranoid and unhappy" stars.
"Starving is not sexy," the Sun quoted her as saying.
"It is bleeding gums, acrid breath, brittle bones, osteoporosis, infertility and complication. It saps and withers.
