Jason Leigh Slams British Press

BACKDRAFT beauty JENNIFER JASON LEIGH has slammed the British press as bullies, who love to print lies.

The 43-year-old actress feels victimised by hounding tabloid reporters and even a role in forthcoming London journalism film RAG TALE didn't help her appreciate the sensationalism of a newspaper office.

The improvised romance, played out on London's notorious press house road Fleet Street, sees her star alongside A CLOCKWORK ORANGE cult actor MALCOLM McDOWELL.

She tells British film magazine Empire, "The British tabloids seem particularly horrible to me.

"I think it appeals to the worst in all of us. It's so tantalising, but so despicable. There's always an agenda - its not about what's true, it's about what sells."

"It amazes me that you can basically lie, as long as somewhere buried in the piece you admit it was a hoax."
