Novelist Jackie Collins fears Hollywood is running out of true stars because actresses like Kirsten Dunst and Reese Witherspoon are "boring".

The writer, who bases the storylines in her bestsellers on real movie stars and socialites, admits she's struggling to find good subjects for her books, but she admits there is hope in Jennifer Lopez, Jamie Foxx and PARIS HILTON.

The scandalous writer says, "(There's) Brittany Murphy, but who knows if she's going to be around. Kirsten Dunst, I think she's really boring. Reese Witherspoon? She can open a movie.

"I think J.Lo is fabulous. Jamie Foxx is phenomenal. He's going to be enormous. Jamie Foxx is the new Denzel Washington.

"Where was Paris Hilton a year ago? She's a fabulous character to write about."
