Adrianne Curry is best known for winning the first season of America’s Next Top Model. But she is not giving the program a very good image right now.
We surely hope this is not the attitude of most top models. Adrianne has deactivated her Twitter account after body shaming the fabulous Melanie Lynskey for her role in The Last of Us.
Melanie Lynskey is most notably known for her role as Rose in Two and a Half Men and Shauna in Yellowjackets. Though Curry’s tweets are gone now, one of them wrote, “Her body says life of luxury…not post-apocalyptic warlord. Where is Linda Hamilton when you need her?”
Though Melanie owed Adrianne no defense, she went on to tell her the photo she was referring to was for InStyle Magazine, not specially just promoting The Last of Us. She is playing a person who meticulously plans an overthrow of FEDRA.
She is supposed to be SMART and does not need to have the body of a muscular woman just to make it believable. That’s what her henchmen are for.
Kathleen is a badass and deserves respect.
Clearly, Adrianne didn’t believe Melanie’s body type was suited for the character. And those words and opinions reflect the actress.
Of course, any type of photo shoot for a magazine is going to have a different look than that of a character in an apocalypse. Shows on HBO and even AMC don’t just freely lend out their wardrobe for every magazine to do cover shoots.
It is also a very ignorant comment one who is not separating the character and actress. Melanie was not in character for the photo shoot, even though Curry later went on to claim that speaking of a character’s look is not speaking on the actress.
You can’t make that argument when you are talking about a photo of the actress then cry character only. I’ve seen this type of talk in The Walking Dead fandom as well.
Adrianne Curry – Lines you do not cross
Speaking of The Walking Dead, Adrianne Curry then went on to try and further defend her argument by bringing up Carol Peletier. She explains that she feels the exact same way the character.
She apparently felt the actress, Melissa McBride, did not fit the force of nature Queen that she is. Both Melanie and Melissa are remarkably, beautiful, bad@#$ women who have earned their right.
The former model then went on to say that she has said those things about Melissa McBride’s character and the actress never took offense and said anything to her. Well, that’s still not an excuse and as we all know Melissa is a kind soul who does not comment on criticism.
Actresses have feelings, whether they call you out on it or not. There are lines you just don’t cross.
There should be no place in this world for women hating on women. We should be supporting each other and propping each other up.
Leadership and beauty come in all shapes and sizes. Because let’s face it, you never see these things said about men and it’s devastating that this came from a fellow woman.
While she left Twitter, Adrianne responded on Facebook that it wasn’t a personal attack and now because of Lynskey’s screenshot, her fans are “bullying” her. Curry says she will no longer return to Twitter, until her fans stop berating her.
Actors and actresses are human beings and can have human reactions. Kudos to Melanie for speaking out for herself and for actresses who go through this same type of treatment, and some like Melissa who have for years.
Let’s put a stop to this.
