Nigella Lawson isn’t bothered by criticism that she doesn’t have a right to tell people how to cook. “Gordon Ramsay makes me laugh because he knows that I’m not a chef,” she says. “I see paparazzi shots of me with no make-up, wearing trainers, not holding in my tummy, and I hate it, but it would be unbearable to worry about it all the time.”
Besides, she feels what people say don’t matter as much as what you believe.
“if you know that something has been really vicious, you don’t read it, you don’t let it into your head. What’s damaging is when sentences go through your head and you burn with the injustice of it.”
