Jamie Oliver - Jamie Oliver Blasts 'B*tch' Journalist Over Weight Question

Jamie Oliver has taken his healthy eating manifesto Down Under but his PR team will have their work cut out if a recent press conference is anything to go by. At a Q&A session on responsible eating on Tuesday (March 6, 2012), Jamie Oliver was asked by a journalist whether or not he had he put on a few pounds himself, of late. His response was far from a considered one - something he later put down to having had a few alcoholic drinks the previous night.
The Daily Mail has reported that when he was asked the question about his own weight, Oliver replied by saying "I don't know. I am very healthy. I think the last time I had a filling in my teeth, which was quite recently, I was in good nick. But really, I am not really sure." Then he added "Are you from a tabloid? Thank you for noticing, you b****." The Naked Chef then tried to temper his aggressive response by explaining that he does his best to watch his weight and works out twice a week but admitted that he could probably still improve his own healthy lifestyle regime "I do my best," he said. "Working in the food business is quite hard when someone is constantly asking you to try things."
