Remember the rumour a couple of weeks back that singer Charlotte Church was up for a role in [the new film version of ] "The Phantom of the Opera"? Well now, the truth is starting to come out about why we never heard anymore about it. Seems Miss Church was too chunky – at least that’s what the [not so darn good looking himself] Joel Schumacher, and his team, told her.

The 17 year old told In Style magazine that she was constantly losing roles because of her size.

"I won’t fit into their ideals because I think it’s really wrong. I think if I’d just fitted in with everything that everybody told me to I would’ve been in rehab age 12."

She has already made one film, I’ll Be There, which she says is "cute." But she pointed out that she had refused the Phantom film, which is to star Antonio Banderas, and is based on the Lloyd Webber musical.

"They’re saying even if I wanna audition, I’ve gotta lose a few pounds. So I said, ‘Bugger off then’. I get it all the time, calls from the management in LA saying, ‘We’re not getting adverts and major film parts cos you’re too big’."

Church – who won last year’s Rear Of The Year title when she was 16, said: "Yeah, my arse is a bit big but I’m happy with myself. As long as I can sing it doesn’t matter about the fame, it’s disposable. I won’t conform to the crap."

You go girl, film has a place for fart butts too! I mean, shit, now that Church isn’t in the running, Katie Holmes might be playing the lead – anyone else see my mire?
