The Daily Mail today asked "Why DO so many celebs have knobbly knees?" No really, they actually did.
The Mail concludes that knobbly knees are a result of female celebrities being "slaves to staying slim". But while the Mail does criticise a number of celebrities for being too "bony", it doesn't mention the catty headlines it would write about any celebrities whose limbs aren’t stick thin and pointy. Such as this one...
Not that celebrities should cover up their knobbly knees to save us all from such a sight, because that only makes matters worse. Look at Angelina Jolie. According to the Mail, she has "terrifyingly bony knees" when she appears in a dress but is accused of "covering up her painfully thin frame" if she wears trousers.
In fact, the Mail doesn't like celebrities covering up at all. Those who do run the risk of being called "glum", "frumpy", "downbeat" or "dowdy" if they don't have their knobbly knees on display at all times.
Which leaves putting on weight as the only workable solution to knobbly knees in the eyes of the Mail, and that brings us back to those catty headlines. The Mail can't lose.
