Anna Paquin Responds to Critics Who Said She Looked 'Pregnant and Fat': 'I'm Neither'
The actress fought back against people who criticized her outfit at The Good Dinosaur premiere
Anna Paquin knows how to put Internet body shamers in their place.
“Fun fact: Wearing a dress that is not skintight=Pregnant/invites people 2 call u fat. I’m neither so thanks 4 that,” she tweeted Wednesday night.
Paquin, 33, accompanied the tweet with a shot of her and husband Stephen Moyer, 46, from the premiere. Pacquin, who is the mom to fraternal twins Poppy and Charlie, 3, wore a black embroidered dress with a full skirt.
The former True Blood star followed up with another tweet an hour later, announcing to world, “dear mother nature, people who bravely hide behind computers and pass judgement have informed me my pale skin and dark hair=old/ugle/harsh.”
Thankfully for Paquin, the nicer side of Twitter came out to support her after that, with people writing that she looks “gorgeous,” “beautiful,” and “stunning,” and Paquin responded in kind.
“sorry if this feels like blatant compliment fishing, really not my intention but do appreciate the love xo,” she wrote.

Paquin previously addressed the pressure to be thin in Hollywood back in 2010, telling Shape, “Its one of those things that’s instilled in you, that it’d be really unfortunate for you to not fit the sample size. I think that’s a shame,” she said.
“If you’re not in shape and you don’t look a certain way you might not get the parts you want. I wish it wasn’t an aspect of the job, but I’d be lying if I said it isn’t something I think about.”
