Lynskey is receiving a lot of negative comments on her body

Since the premiere of Yellowjackets in November, the actress received tons of negative feedback about her body. Lynskey tried to shoot down those haters, saying how apalling those comments are. She added that these haters are making unsolicited comments under the disguise of caring about her health and well-being.

The Heavenly Creatures star further explained that those haters don’t see her on her Peloton or when she’s running around with her child in the park. “Skinny does not always equal healthy”- Lynskey added in conclusion to her Twitter post.

This isn’t the first time Melanie faced body shaming

Previously, Melanie revealed how she faced body shaming by a member of the hit Showtime series’ producton team. She said that they criticized her body shape during filming and we can only imagine what she must have felt.

Lynskey also commented that co-stars Christina Ricci, Juliette Lewis and Tawny Cypress supported her in this issue. The trio wrote a letter to the producers standing up for her.

Melanie expressed in a 2016 interview how she was undergoing eating issues and was so unhappy with her body. She furthermore expressed her desire to become genuinely comfortable in her own skin.
