Anna Paquin puts fat shamers and skin-tone haters in their place (PHOTOS)

Anna Paquin is fighting back against Twitter trolls who were hating on her look at The Good Dinosaur premiere yesterday.

Paquin was bashed for looking fat and/or pregnant as well as slammed because haters thought her hair color was too dark against her fair skin tone.

Well, Paquin wasn’t interested in hearing any of it, and she rightfully took to Twitter to express her disgust at the comments.
This is far from the first time Paquin has spoken out about body issues in Hollywood.

In a 2010 interview with Self, Paquin explained that body image triggers were a part of the job in Hollywood.

“People don’t have to tell you overtly that it’s better ‘for you to be smaller.’ It’s 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 at the time. “If you’re not in shape and you don’t look a certain way you might not get the parts you want. If the character is written as hot and fit, yeah, of course you feel some pressure to make sure you look that way, whether that’s right or wrong. 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.”

She’s also far from the first celeb to take a stand against body shaming as of late. Victoria’s Secret model Bridget Malcolm recently took to Instagram to fight against skinny shamers and Ariana Grande fired back at rude comparisons.

How do you think celebs should handle the influx of Internet hate?
