Running around city streets in high heels has caused a new bone to grow in the foot of Sex And The City star Sarah Jessica Parker.
It's been well reported the damage that sky-high stilettos can do - the pain, the cost, the difficulty walking.
Some women are so determined to continue strutting about in their favourite heels they're prepared to chop off their smallest toe to stay in touch with fashion.
Parker, who is best known as popular writer Carrie Bradshaw from the Sex And The City series, has found another problem with the well heeled.

"For 10 or so years, I literally ran in heels," Parker told Net-a-Porter's magazine.
"I worked 18-hour days and never took them off. I wore beautiful shoes, some better made than others, and never complained.
"I went to a foot doctor and he said, 'Your foot does things it shouldn't be able to do. That bone there ... you've created that bone. It doesn't belong there.'"
"The moral of the story is, the chickens are coming home to roost. It's sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, 'You know what, we're really tired, can you just stop - and don't put cheap shoes on us?'"
