In 2005, Mireille Guiliano caused a stir with her “non-diet” book French Women Don’t Get Fat and now there’s buzz that Oscar winner Hilary Swank may star in a romantic comedy based on the book and its beliefs: Ditch the fad diets and low-cal frozen meals in favor of bread, wine and chocolate (in moderation, bien sur) and you’re less likely to become obese! Later this month, Guiliano will also debut The French Women Don’t Get Fat Cookbook ($25, Atria), chock-full of 150 decadent recipes like Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and Chicken au Champagne and stocked with more of the author’s trademark wit and wisdom. “Your eating and living habits…like a classic Chanel suit, should last you forever with minor alterations over the years,” Guilano writes. We can’t wait for both!
