Lynskey credits costume designer

“There were already guys putting a lot of Spanx on me in wardrobe fittings and when they saw me they were so disappointed, the costume designer was like, ‘No one told me there would be girls like you,'” Lynskey said. A really intense reaction to my physicality, my body, the people doing my makeup and being like, ‘I’m going to help you out by giving you a little more jawline and stuff.’ Just the response was constant, ‘You’re not pretty. You’re not pretty. Lynskey later clarified that the costume designer credited for in the film was not the person she was referring to in her comments.

Lynskey tweeted on Wednesday

“The costume designer who initially worked on Coyote Ugly left for some reason, and a lovely kind lady named Marlene Stewart took over and she was great.” She wrote. “And my answer was kind of a mess – I’ve had experiences with makeup artists to help my face look better but that didn’t happen on Coyote Ugly. The hair and makeup team was amazing and so kind and one of the best I have ever worked with. ,

But body shaming didn’t stop in the early 2000s.

In January, the Heavenly Creatures actress revealed that she had recently encountered a similar situation with a crew member while filming Showtime’s Yellowjacket.” They were asking me, ‘What are you planning to do? Are you? I’m sure the producers will give you a trainer. They’d love to help you with this,'” she told Rolling Stone. The actress’s co-star Juliette Lewis learned of the conversation and produced the production on behalf of Lynskey. “I wish women could look at [Yellowjacket] and be like, ‘Wow, she looks like me and no one is saying she’s fat.’ This representation is important,” Linsky concluded.
