Jennifer AnistonAngelina Jolie and Drew Barrymore are among a long list of celebrities living fictional lives in a new mystery novel by director Steven Soderbergh's wife Jules Asner.

Asner, a former model and TV correspondent, has created a parallel universe in her upcoming tome entitled Whacked--which follows a fictional character as she seeks revenge on a cheating boyfriend and mingles with real-life stars.

Her characters make controversial observations about Barrymore, who is "about to expire like spoiled milk" and Angelina Jolie: "God doesn't really make size-zero women with size-36C bustlines, right?"

Asner insists she didn't ask stars' permission to include them in the book--and isn't worried about a backlash.

She tells the New York Daily News, "I didn't ask permission. Maybe I should have! I know Ryan (Seacrest)--I don't think he'd be bothered. And Jen (Aniston) is the sweetest, nicest person in the world. I'd only mention her in a great capacity."
