Aishwarya Rai stunned everyone including her critics at the recent Cannes film festival. The actress while speaking to the media revealed that she doesn't care about 'haters' as they are like a drop in the ocean of people who love and care for her. The diva goes on to add that weight gain is
absolutely fine with her as she does not endorse size zero. Ash says that she's lived a real life and that's what matters to her. Here's what she said at Cannes:
'Haters don't matter'
I've always said that haters are a drop in the ocean. There's that much more love. Any kind of negativity in any case just doesn't stick, it drops off and it doesn't matter. People have given me so much love throughout my career, my life in the public eye, at every phase.

'Thanks for all the love'
After I got married, for the next two years, I was congratulated everywhere and felt like a new bride. Same goes true for when I was pregnant. Wherever I went, the amount of love I, Abhishek and Aaradhya have received...it's a blessing to be in this place. I take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone for their love, good wishes, blessings. That's the real thing, the rest of it is opinion that varies and it doesn't matter. This is the reality.
'I've never endorsed size zero'
This is who I am. I am a mother. This can happen and it has happened with me and it's fine (weight gain). I've never been the one who endorse size zero anyway. You guys speculated I was pregnant way before I actually was. It goes to show that I have lived real life in the public eye. That continues.
'Only reality matters'
There are lot of people out there who recognise that, see that, and share that energy with me. And that's what matters - reality.
Well, Ash we love you the way you are!
