Ita Buttrose happy with 'Paper Giants'

25 April 2011 4:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ita Buttrose has revealed that she is pleased with new show Paper Giants. The former publishing boss, who was portrayed by Asher Keddie in the TV drama about how she revolutionised the Australian women's magazine industry, also revealed more about what it was like to work with media mogul Kerry Packer in the 1970s. According to The Sunday Telegraph, Buttrose praised Keddie's performance but said that her "lisp was overdone". She also revealed that Rob Carlton "captured Kerry's temper" but she didn't think "his great sense of humour" came across very well.
