Apparently there's not a lot of love lost between Joan Collins and her fellow celebrities. In an interview with the Telegraph to promote her new book, The World According to Joan, the former Dynasty star was asked about:

  • Kate Winslet: On one of her outfits at the Venice Film Festival, “Oh, that’s a dreadful dress. The worst dress. And ghastly shoes and an awful hairstyle. I’m sorry.”
  • Carey Mulligan: “I don’t want to comment on Carey Mulligan. I can’t believe she’s playing Eliza Doolittle in a new movie.”
  • Adele: “She’s a very good singer, very, very talented, but she has a terrible hairpiece.”

  • Keira Knightley: “Well, she’s thin.”
  • Gwyneth Paltrow: “Is she the one who called her grandmother a rude word on air? I thought that was pretty shocking.”
  • Kate Moss: She's “OK, but she’s not Linda Evangelista in my mind.”
  • Victoria Beckham: “Oh, I love Victoria Beckham. You’ve finally found someone I like.”
