Skinny actresses MINNIE DRIVER and GWYNETH PALTROW have been lined up to play the FAT SLAGS in a film of the vulgar British cartoon characters.
The slags - Sandra and Tracey - first appeared in the cult
British comic VIZ and now the rights have been bought by British film company FILM FOUR.
Leading contenders for the two roles are Driver and Paltrow, both very slim. The pair, it seems, will not bulk up for the movie by gorging calorie-laden food but will wear the specially designed
"fat suits" that angered pressure groups for overweight Americans. (PDD/PNC)
