Accusation: Unflattering bikini pictures started an avalanche of criticism about the actress' curvy lower body.
Response: At first, she zinged back with, "A size 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be. And being a size 0 doesn't make you beautiful." But when people challenged that she was not a size 2 she quietly lost about 20 pounds and then showed off her much-smaller physique in a bikini on the cover of Shape.
