When it comes to shoplifting, there are usually two classes of 'C's involved - college students and celebrities.
If the latter class sends your eyebrows skyrocketing, may we direct your attention to the shenanigans of a certain Hollywood actress, Winona Ryder?
The thrill of getting the 'five-finger discount' is quite high closer to home, too.
A little birdie told us that a leading south Indian actress was cornered in an Emirates flight recently, at the Dubai airport, and asked to hand over the lipstick she had just boosted from the Duty Free lounge.
When she denied any knowledge of said lippy, the officials showed her a video clip that clearly showed her palming the small tube at the airport Duty Free shop.
Red faced, this young star had to return the product, amidst a flurry of apologies, and then endure knowing looks and whispered censure from her fellow passengers during the flight back!
Why go to such lengths to tarnish your name, Miss I-am-so-popular-in-Tamil-and-Telugu? All publicity is NOT good publicity!
