Mariah Carey's film flop Glitter has one celebrity fan - model-turned-Tv personality Padma Lakshmi, who starred alongside the pop superstar in the movie.

Lakshmi made her movie debut in the much-maligned 2001 film but admits it was a fun experience and even the bad reviews didn't change that.

And it turned Lakshmi into a huge Mariah Carey fan.

She explains, "Nobody can sing the way she does. Watching her close up is like swimming alongside (Olympian) Michael Phelps at the Olympics. Girl's got some lungs."
