New York, May 29 : Jennifer Aniston, Ryan Seacrest, Angelina Jolie and Drew Barrymore are among a long list of celebrities living fictional lives in a new mystery novel by Jules Asner - wife of director Steven Soderbergh.
Asner, a former model and TV correspondent, has created a parallel universe in her upcoming tome entitled 'Whacked,' which follows a fictional character as she seeks revenge on a cheating boyfriend and mingles with real-life stars.
Her characters make controversial observations about Barrymore, who is 'about to expire like spoiled milk' and Angelina Jolie: 'God doesn't really make size-zero women with size-36C bustlines, right?'
Asner insists she didn't ask stars' permission to include them in the book - and isn't worried about a backlash.
"I didn't ask permission. Maybe I should have. I know Ryan [Seacrest] - I don't think he'd be bothered. And Jen [Aniston] is the sweetest, nicest person in the world. I'd only mention her in a great capacity," the New York Daily News quoted her, as saying.
