Flockhart Throws Off 'Skinny' Jibes
Actress Calista Flockhart is philosophical about constantly being criticised for being thin in image-obsessed Hollywood. The slender 41-year-old is tired of insisting she can be skinny and healthy simultaneously, and now takes jibes in her stride. She says, "I'm trying to have a sense of humour about it. "There was a time when I was really hurt and frightened by it and thought, 'How did this get out of control?' "It was like a runaway train I didn't start and couldn't stop. "If you're naturally thin, and you're healthy, there are certain people in the world who are going to be p**sed off about it. "Either way, you just can't win."
