Kim Novak - Kim Novak Attacks 'Bullies' Who Were Mean About Her Oscars Appearance

Veteran actress Kim Novak has blasted those who poked fun at her looks after her Oscars appearance alongside Matthew Mcconaughey in March (14), insisting she feels compelled to "speak out against bullies".

The Vertigo actress admits that jabs from the likes of Donald Trump, who insisted Novak should "sue her plastic surgeon", stung at first, but in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she says she owes it to the victims of bullies everywhere to speak out.

The 81 year old states, "It (criticism) really did throw me into a tailspin and it hit me hard... For days, I didn't leave the house, and it got to me like it gets kids and teenagers (who are attacked)."

Her phone chat with the publication came hours after the actress released an open letter stating, "I will no longer hold myself back from speaking out against bullies. We can't let people get away with affecting our lives."

She adds, "I'm not going to deny that I had fat injections in my face. They seemed far less invasive than a facelift. In my opinion, a person has a right to look as good as they can, and I feel better when I look better."

Novak has also addressed her Oscars night speech pattern, which some critics described as halting, stating it was the result of a relaxant pill she had taken before appearing onstage.
