Heather Mills would rather lose all her limbs than fall in love with another "cultural icon" like estranged husband Sir Paul McCartney.
The former model, who lost a leg in a motorcycle accident in 1993, insists she'd give up all her limbs if she could avoid the pain, heartache and the attacks on her character that came during her courtship with the former beatle.
Speaking as part of a world exclusive interview with US news show Extra, which aired last night (21NOV06), Mills stunned host DAYNA DEVON when she said, "I would rather someone come up and chop off all my limbs than go through what I went through."
Mills, who is currently in the middle of a painful divorce with MCCartney, added, "If your limbs are chopped off, you get another (fake) limb and there's light at the end of the tunnel. When you're vilified for doing nothing but falling in love with an icon... I'd rather have all of my limbs cut off (and) that's the God's honest truth."
And the whole experience of falling for MCCartney, marrying him and then splitting from him has put her off marriage for life.
Mills says, "I'm not saying that I wouldn't fall madly in love or have a soulmate or anything like that, but I would never go through this again. It's too devastating."
