Jones Slams Irresponsible Role Models
Actress RASHIDA JONES has hit out at the "depressing" lack of Hollywood role models for young girls. Jones, the star of U.S. TV's The Office and the daughter of music legend Quincy Jones, is fed up with reading about the exploits of troubled celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears. Instead, the 32-year-old wishes more attention could be focused on responsible role models - like Miley Cyrus. She says, "I think about what it would be like to have a daughter now, one who is influenced by Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears - and, ugh, it's so depressing. "Where are the other young Hollywood role models who are cool, smart, and out there doing something with their lives? Maybe Miley Cyrus? There's a definite responsibility that comes with being famous. You shouldn't be able to just... look pretty."
