CANNES, FRANCE (AP) - Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is happy with herself and her weight _ a rare combination in the world of celebrities.

The Indian actress was at the Cannes Film Festival, where she walked the red carpet in an elegant cream-and-gold sari and attended the amfAR Cinema Against Aids auction.

Fans were eager to see if the former Miss World was back in shape after giving birth to a daughter last year, but she said she doesn’t worry about that.

“An actor is in the public eye, there will be opinions, ” said Rai Bachchan. “Yes there is negativity, but I’m blessed the positivity is so much more that the negativity is a drop that just slides right off.”


And there’s no way she’s going on a diet for anyone.

“I have always enjoyed my food and I have never been one for strict diets,” she said.
