WORKING GIRL actress MELANIE GRIFFITH has a new addiction - to food.
The Hollywood star is finding that kicking her addiction to prescription pain killers is causing her to pile on the pounds (kilos), and she's panicking she's getting too fat.
Since her recent rehabilitation stint, Melanie's found comfort in her favourite foods - like macaroni cheese and doughnuts. According to pals, Melanie remembers how FRIENDS star MATTHEW PERRY packed on 50 pounds (22.5 kilos) after he kicked the drug, and she doesn't want to end up like that.
She's begged husband ANTONIO BANDERAS to keep his fattening foods out of the house and has stocked up on rice cakes and vegetables.
