Does Jamie Oliver look bigger to you? If so, don't ask him about it!
The British chef and TV personality called a female reporter a "b----" after she asked about his seemingly larger frame, The Herald Sun reports.
"Are you from a tabloid? Thank you for noticing," he responded Wednesday before calling the Australian journalist from ABC News the b-word.
Oliver, who was in Australia to promote his partnership with the government to address obesity, explained that staying fit for a chef is not easy. "I eat fresh. I train twice a week. I could definitely do better, but I am trying to do my best like most people when they hit 30."
When asked about the incident at a later time by a different reporter, Oliver apologized and said he was possibly hungover from the night before. "I went out last night and had a few drinks after a very long day, [and] my brain did not quite understand that question."
Oliver's rep denied any weight gain and blamed the misconception on unflattering photos taken of the chef while he was visiting Australia.
Oliver starred in ABC's Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, which aired for two seasons on ABC and won the Emmy award for best reality program in 2010.
