A round-up of some of my favorite quotations from celebrities—all starlets—on the powerful world of food and drink, each of these stars’ words are very telling.
Here are 20 appetizing zingers by celebs, each famous actress giving you her take!

3) Audrey Hepburn— “For a slim figure, Share your food with the hungry.”
4) Sophia Loren—“Everything you see I owe to spaghetti."
5) Sandra Bullock—“Chocolate is the greatest gift to women ever created, next to the likes of Paul Newman and Gene Kelly. It's something that should be had on a daily basis.”

7) Marlene Dietrich—“Champagne makes you feel like it’s Sunday and better days are just around the corner.”

13) Goldie Hawn—“If you put junk food in your body, your body will turn to junk.”

15) Shirley MacLaine—“Don't be afraid to go out on a limb. It's where all the fruit is.”
16) Gwyneth Paltrow—"We've got a wood-burning pizza oven in the garden—a luxury, I know, but it's one of the best investments I've ever made."
