10 QUOTES WITH «TABLOID»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word tabloid.
1
Bipasha Basu
When I started out as a model, I took things for granted. Because I bagged work thanks to my looks, I didn't give my body any importance. I was a couch potato who'd eat anything. Then, in 2005, a tabloid ran a story calling me fat. I thought, 'I'm famous. How can I be fat?' It was a slap. I decided to get fit.
2
Daisy Berkowitz
It's like tabloid news programs that talk about how horrible something is, while at the same time they're glorifying it as their top story.
3
Derek Blasberg
Although it's not something I'm particularly proud of, I'm willing to admit that, in addition to whiling away the long stretches of time in the air and waiting in airport lounges reading the 'New Yorker' and 'New York Times' on my Kindle, I've picked up the occasional tabloid magazine.
4
John Byrne
It's that invasive and puerile curiosity to feed a tabloid culture. I don't subscribe to it.
5
Connie Chung
Well, honestly, both my husband and I tend to ignore the tabloids. We see them every once in awhile or it comes to our attention that we are in a tabloid for one reason or another. But it's always false.
6
Nick Denton
I don't really mind playing tabloid monster. I always liked those characters in the old movies.

Calista Flockhart
A lot of the tabloid stories are written so well, they're very clever and very funny. But you have to focus on what's really important and not read them - don't dive into it and don't get caught up in it.
8
Adrian Grenier
Because when you go out, and you have fun, basically you're performing for these tabloid outlets and the paparazzi. And when you perform and create this story, they're chuffed - they get excited, they capture it, and they put it out.
9
Anthony Holden
A close associate of his gave an interview in which the book was described as quotes 'fiction from being to end'. I suffered trial by tabloid for a couple of weeks, lots of insults in the press, in the columns - this man should be put in the tower and so on.
10
Lauren Holly
It was at the beginning of all this tabloid frenzy. Our garbage was being gone through, and we were involved in all these chases getting home, and people camping out on our property to get pictures.
