Julia Stiles Is Absolutely Desperate For Your Attention

Page Six is all bent outta shape:
Julia Stiles claims she doesn't read this fair column, but the haughty Columbia grad sure knows a lot about us. The actress tells Gotham magazine, "I don't read them. It's just 'ignorance is bliss' in that sense. I know when I take the subway how many people read PAGE SIX, but at the same time, it's a daily newspaper. It's fun fodder for a cocktail party, but those newspapers are used to wrap fish the next day. It would be bad to be so obsessed and self-involved to think that people are actually paying that much attention to you from one little blurb on PAGE SIX."
Yeah, she went there. All but forgotten today, this once-powerful titan of the kid-tested, mother-approved box office hasn't made an impact on any front in about eighteen months. With some high-profile projects due any time now, Stiles has begun a frantic eleventh-hour campaign for exposure - the kind of frenzied publicity push that doesn't have time for nipple slips or pantiless upskirts to slowly trudge their way from Fleshbot to Us Weekly, the kind of last-minute effort whose only recourse is a perilously reckless form of tabloid taunting that guarantees and even demands close scrutiny of Stiles' every tube top and vodkatini. This game of chicken is all or nothing, and only time will tell if Stiles has the fortitude, gumption, and scrap necessary to come out of this on her feet. Welcome to the fray, Ms. Stiles. Best of luck to you.
