Anna Faris Deleted A Picture After Getting Skinny-Shamed 

October 3, 2018 / Posted by:

Yahoo! is saying that Anna Faris posted a picture to her Instagram which she surely meant to be breezy and for jokes, and quickly turned into people passing her a pamphlet for an eating disorder support group. The photo was taken by her Unqualified podcast assistant, Michael Sherman, and shows her hunching over a garbage can while wearing knee-high boots, a long-sleeve shirt and what is either a pair of short Spanx or the ugliest shorts I’ve ever seen. Anna captioned the pic: “Having pre-show jitters.”  She deleted it within maybe 20 minutes after many said she was too skinny in the comments. (“Too skinny???”, Kim Kardashian shouted. “There is no such thing!”)

Here’s the picture in question from TMZ:

Here’s some comments from people who acted like they were concerned but still put her on blast:

“This is alarming.”

“You look so unhealthy — eat.”

“I feel this pic is a cry for help, I hope you get the help you need.”

Some did defend Anna:

“Shame on those people that were commenting before. You are beautiful and judgment being hidden behind condescending concern is rude and inappropriate.”

“You are beautiful and don’t worry about nasty jealous people. I’ve struggled with my weight all my life, constantly being told to eat something. I’ve even had food thrown at me!”

This whole Anna Faris Is Way Too Skinny mess is happening after Anna opened up about her weight when she covered Women’s Health back in April. She talked about gaining a ton of weight when she was pregnant:

“When I was pregnant, I gained 70 pounds! I’d never enjoyed food more and I didn’t care. My vanity was completely tidal-waved by the need to just nourish this thing. … I had absolutely zero concern about my weight. It felt really good.”

And she talked about losing weight:

“I’ve never worked on a show where I lost weight, except for Mom. I run up and down stairs 30 or 40 times a day from the set to my dressing room, I’m doing this podcast, I’ve got a [kid]. I feel so busy; I don’t have a ton of time to indulge in foods I love, like a cheeseburger and fries, with mayonnaise, my favorite condiment. Food’s more of an efficiency thing.”

I too was mad about Anna Faris ruining the memory of Overboard for many, but telling her to eat is taking it too far. And to the commenter who said that people throw food at them: Hit me up so we can be friends and I can save on groceries by snatching up the free food that people throw at you.


Our commenting rules are pretty simple: Don't be racist or bigoted, or go way off topic when not in an Open Post. If you see an offensive or spammy comment you think should be deleted, flag it for the mods and they'll be forever grateful and give you their first born (although, you probably don't want that).
