News sources around the world are saying that today Stella McCartney will wed Alasdhair Willis on Saddell Beach in Kintyre, Scotland (see June 29).
A week ago, Stella was the subject of a BBC 1 documentary in which she admitted that fame made her paranoid as a child. She recalled:
"You think everybody hates you."Stella also admitted that being the daughter of a "mega superstar" is not an easy thing. Consider what it must be like to have strangers constantly asking you about your father:
"People don't generally go up to people and go 'Hi, how's your dad?' And that can get quite irritating after a while. So you're like, 'Yeah, he's fine - how's your dad?' You can get quite aggressive. I'm not as bad now because hopefully people judge me on what I do for a living."In the documentary, Stella credits her mother Linda as being the biggest influence on her life:
"Everybody always says that about their mums, except my mum was just the best, that's all. It wasn't only her clothes and style, but it was her personality, which was natural and real."
