Melanie Lynskey clarifies experience of body shaming on set of Coyote Ugly

In an interview for The Hollywood Reporter, the New Zealand-born actress and her Yellowjackets co-stars Tawny Cypress, Juliette Lewis, and Christina Ricci discussed the ups and downs of pursuing a career in the entertainment business. When the topic of Coyote Ugly came up in conversation, Melanie revealed that she had been "starving" herself while making the drama and that the costume designer gave her "really intense feedback" about her physicality. But after the story began to hit headlines, the 45-year-old took to Twitter to explain that her comments referred to the first costume designer who worked on Coyote Ugly and not Marlene Stewart.
