Riya Sen: every stalker's delight?

AP reports:
Riya Sen gets lots of crank calls and she likes it, the Bollywood starlet told the Times of India in an interview published on Wednesday.

“My mom and dad are used to blank calls at odd hours at home. In fact if I don't get attention I feel I am not good looking any more,” Sen said.
Now, our actresses aren't exactly nuclear scientists, but surely none of them is silly enough to say something like this. So I hunted out the ToI interview in question, and found that Riya doesn't say anywhere that she likes crank calls. The basis for that conclusion by AP seems to be the two sentences quoted above, which might well have been intended to be independent of each other.

Anything for a story, eh?
