Memories of Melanie Linsky from the set of Very ugly Not everyone is fond. While working on the film that released 22 years ago this week, Lynskey says she was body shamed.

“All the girls had this rule that they had to follow. It was ridiculous,” she explains. Hollywood Reporter. “I was already starving myself and being as skinny as I could for this body, and I was still a [size] four.”

The 2000 film follows a young songwriter, played by Piper Perabo, who takes a job at a trendy New York City bar, where the main job of the all-female bar staff is to tantalize customers. Lynskey played Perabo’s best friend from her hometown in New Jersey.

“There were already people putting a lot of Spanx on me in wardrobe fittings and they were very disappointed when they saw me, the costume designer. [at the time] to be like, ‘Nobody told me there would be girls like you,'” Lynskey tells heart, “In your early 20s, it’s a lot about beauty, and how people respond to you, and whether people want to f— do people think you’re their best friend? Even Even that best friend thing, I started to be like, ‘I don’t want to do this too many times.'”

Lynskey took to Twitter on Wednesday to clarify the identity of the costume designer referenced in her interview.

“I see this become a headline, so please let me clarify a few things! The costume designer I worked with in the beginning Very ugly left for some reason, and a lovely kind lady named Marlene Stewart took over and she was so nice,” she tweeted, “The first person was mean, not the person to give credit.”

Her thread continued, “Just terrified that people will google ‘Very ugly costume designer’ and think that Marlene was no good when she was great. And my answer was kind of a mess—I’ve had experiences with makeup artists to help my face look better but it didn’t. Very ugly, The hair and makeup team was amazing and so kind and one of the best I’ve ever worked with.”

She concluded, “Sorry for any confusion I may have caused—if I ever talk about a bad experience I’ve had I’m very careful about not being able to recognize that those Who did things because I’m not in the business in public is shaming people. I’ll talk about my experience without getting into it.”

In happy movie nostalgia, Lynskey recently opened up about her magical experience working with ET Ever After: A Cinderella Story With Drew Barrymore and Anjelica Huston.

“It was like a really wonderful time,” she said. Lynskey shared that Huston used to throw epic dinner parties with French wine and singing, while Barrymore would play the DJ.

,[I thought] Moviemaking is magic!” she exclaimed. “And they’re not all that I came to learn. They’re not all that magical, but it was a great time.”

The romance/fairy tale film was released in 1998 and was an adaptation of the classic Cinderella story. Barrymore starred as Danielle, with Huston portraying his evil stepmother.
