Peak silliness around me in the tabloids right now. And NO, I’m not promoting a keto diet (whatever that is.) And NO, I’m not flogging face cream on Facebook.

Most of all, Sam makes a whole lot of headlines, simply by having a body and walking around in it.
And she’s not thrilled about it.
It’s been going on for years. Back in 2016, Sam came in to Mamamia to talk to Mia Freedman about her life, career and the media attention.
“Paparazzi [are] in the bushes outside my house,” she said, “Taking pictures of me taking the bins out. It’s creepy. I’d love them to find someone else to focus on.”
