Actor Lily James has hit back at bodyshamers who claim she is too thin and insisted she has “always been healthy”.

The 28-year-old actor was branded a “bad role model” when she took on the role of Cinderella in the live action adaptation of the Disney classic, because some people thought she was too skinny, reported Contactmusic.

“They were saying I’m a bad role model. I’ve always been healthy. I eat! I do have a tiny waist and quite big hips so it looks in proportion, you know? I have an hourglass shape.”

And while Lily was blasted for being too thin, she acknowledged that a number of other actresses are often told they need to lose weight for roles.

“Yeah, I’ve heard that story. And you hear those stories all the time. It’s so disheartening. I hope it’s not getting worse, because people are talking about it and people are aware.”
