Just Some Amazing AF Things Celebs Have Said About Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Even her exes have the nicest things to say about her!

And to back this claim (not that we really have to), we've comprised you a list of things Hollywood and Bollywood celebs have said about her:

Rekha – "Among the models I admire, I find Aishwarya is the best. I disagree with the media that she is 'plastic'. I find her very expressive.I will fight for her like a tigress if need be. My heart goes out to Ash. She's been around for so long and yet not been there. That's how it was with me…until I did Umrao. It seemed improbable that a Tamilan girl talking Urdu would work. Similarly this South Indian girl should realize her potential in Umrao. She doesn't need to go to Hollywood to prove herself. She's our own. Why Bride & Prejudice? Who are these people from outside trying to tap Ash's potential? She's our treasure. It's time we acknowledge her."

Shah Rukh Khan – "It's sad that things didn't work out with Ash in Chalte Chalte. But believe me, I bear no ill will towards her. I feel very proud of the fact that when you go to London, France, Germany, the only two Indian names people recognise are Aishwarya Rai and Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh Bachchan has been there for so many years and he's wonderful. But Aishwarya Rai is our contemporary, younger than many of us. She's perhaps done less work than me and to still be the international face of Indian cinema is great."

Sanjay Leela Bhansali - "Most of Ash is lost in her beautiful face. So directors keep focusing on that and her acting skills aren't put to use. She is a director's actress. I believe I have brought out the best in Ash. She is a wonderful friend, and we get along like a house on fire. We can chat for hours, or not say a word, and be comfortable."

Sushmita Sen – "I think there is definitely a very huge price to pay when you are as beautiful as Aishwarya Rai is. There is huge price to pay when your entire projection has always been that of perfection. So even if the poor girl does something, as sneeze in public, it's news, and it's bad news… So I really wish that media would give Aishwarya Rai a break because I think a girl goes through a lot of pressure all the time from everybody from the Madame Tussauds, to the world press, to English movies etc. It just like that the world is expected out of Aishwarya Rai. She is just a girl, she will take her time and I am sure she will come out of it."

'I am proud of Aishwarya. She has given every Indian a reason to be proud. "

Atul Kasbekar(photographer) – "She's stunning. You can put your light anywhere and shoot her, and she'll look good. There are very few people who land on this planet genuinely believing they've come with a certain destiny. They are the chosen few. I'm willing to wager that Aishwarya genuinely believes that God has given her so much that she shouldn't fritter it away., Again, I say this in the most positive way,.She may not say this aloud, but Aishwarya has, from day one, known where she's headed and worked towards it."

Gurinda Chadha(director of Bride and Prejudice) – "I think she's going to be very particular about showing her body and about any kind of physical, intimate scenes. Because she's a good Indian girl at heart."

Martin Henderson(co-star Bride and Prejudice) - "I have a soft spot for her. It's not because of her beauty,though she is very beautiful. I like the side that isn't seen.The real Ash is a sweet girl. She reminds me of an old fashioned movie star-So glamorous… I think I was lucky to get to know a side of Ash that alot of people never see,I mean the image of Ash is this huge movie star which she is in India is one thing,and I think that was compelling,but you know I was lucky to spend time with her and get to know the other side of her which is a really sweet,very sensitive,and really loveable person,she giggles a lot"

Abhishek Bachchan (on KNK shooting experience) – "A huge mob kept chasing us around Nariman Point. It was so frustrating because we could not get any work done, but it was also a good ego boost. But then I would look over to my right and see Ash and realise why they were all there."

"She's the mould that God made the first woman from."

Preity Zinta - "What is unfortunate when you are an actress is that everyone thinks they have access to your personal life. Take Aishwarya as a case in point, why is everyone on this hate mail trip as far as she is concerned? I know one thing about her that she has conducted herself with such dignity, whatever her position in the numbers game. And people are out judging her in the newspapers and magazines and formulating and airing opinions without even knowing her or what she is going through. I was so disturbed yesterday when I read something on the internet that I actually posted something on the site and asked everybody to back off. I feel protective. Besides, today it is her, tomorrow it might be me."

Abhishek Bachchan – "I was dreading this flight to Mauritius.We were going to shoot the title song Kuch Na Kaho. I said Oh God please dont let me sit next to her…..She was right next to me and I said this is it, I am finished. The woman sleeps like a Ms.World as well, I mean she sleeps perfectly (imitates her posture)…and she is out. I couldnt sleep the entire flight because I was petrified that she is going to wake up in the middle of the night for some water and I'm going to be like (imitates himself) {laughs}..She is never going to want to romance me after that in the song. The next time she sees me like in a romantic scene she is going to see this troll sleeping next to her!"

"There are so many things I love about Aishwarya. She's very human and unaffected and down-to-earth , A simple little girl who is always smiling and that's very endearing."

Sabyasachi Mukherjee – "If Aishwarya Rai walks down the ramp in a certain sari, you'd have one million web requests the next day for the very same sari. It's juvenile not to accept that."

Mickey Contractor(make-up artist) – "My best work so far has been with Ash in bits of Taal and Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, Rani in K3G, and Kajol in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Bekhudi. I have wanted to do the Kajre Re look on Ash for a long time. She has done films without make-up, like Mani Ratnam's films, but never in commercial cinema. That too, this was an item number."

Kangana Ranaut: "I just can't stop looking at her. She's gorgeous. I wonder how anyone can be so beautiful. I'm dying to see her in "Umrao Jaan". What a fabulous birthday gift she has received from J.P. Dutta."

Deepika Padukone – ''From the female lead, only Aishwarya Rai at the moment is dominating in Bollywood having come from the modeling background. A few more like Dia Mirza, Celina Jaitley and Sushmita Sen too have made a mark. Will you be as lucky as they are?Hopefully. Ash is someone I definitely look up to. She is someone I've really learnt a lot from and I used to watch her endorsements, her films and her modeling career right from the time she started off when I was very little and young. I also remember watching her when she won the Miss World. If my career goes the same way as Aishwarya's, it's going to be a huge compliment for me.''
