Flockhart Throws Off 'Skinny' Jibes

Actress CALISTA FLOCKHART is philosophical about constantly being criticised for being thin in image-obsessed Hollywood. The slender 41-year-old is tired of insisting she can be skinny and healthy simultaneously, and now takes jibes in her stride. She says, "I'm trying to have a sense of humour about it. "There was a time when I was really hurt and frightened by it and thought, 'How did this get out of control?' "It was like a runaway train I didn't start and couldn't stop. "If you're naturally thin, and you're healthy, there are certain people in the world who are going to be p**sed off about it. "Either way, you just can't win."

I know the skinny jibes scenario by heart!! It is hurtful and frightening, but I think what people are most jealous about in Calista is her sense of serenity, great poise and total femininty. It never fails to amaze me how people can critise someone so hurtfully without thinking about what they are saying or doing....... they must have very small lives themselves.....
