JK Rowling, you rock.
After the ceremony she was approached by a woman she had not seen for three years, but instead of asking her about her work or latest child, the woman said: “You’ve lost a lot of weight since the last time I saw you!” Rowling writes in response: “Well,’ I said, slightly nonplussed, ‘the last time you saw me I’d just had a baby’. What I felt like saying was, ‘I’ve produced my third child and my sixth novel since I last saw you. Aren’t either of those things more important, more interesting, than my size?’ But no – my waist looked smaller! Forget the kid and the book: finally, something to celebrate!”
