I have spent a decade in the entertainment industry, first as a pop culture journalist and television personality, and now as a fashion, lifestyle and hospitality publicist. This means that at social functions I often get hit with the following questions:
Question: Are celebrities shorter in person?
Answer: Not so much shorter as they are noticeably smaller/thinner than they appear onscreen. Yes, the camera truly does add 10 pounds.
Question: Do you get nervous when you’re on TV?
Answer: Rarely. Unless I think about the whole 10-pounds thing.
