Actress Anna Paquin has been in the limelight since she was pre-pubescent, so it's surprising we don't hear more from her about body image and unrealistic beauty standards in Hollywood. Maybe because she's been hot, hot, hot this whole time? Nah, even the most beautiful women in the world get ragged on by Internet trolls. Since her hit show True Blood ended, Paquin has gotten rid of her tan and her signature Sookie blondeness. She appeared in a flowing flower print dress with a dark bob on the red carpet for her new movie's premiere, and apparently the comments came rolling in. Paquin responded on Twitter:
Fun fact: Wearing a dress that is not skintight=Pregnant/invites people 2 call u fat. I'm neither so thanks 4 that pic.twitter.com/TZ960m8pPk— Anna Paquin (@AnnaPaquin) November 18, 2015
Ah, to be a fly on the wall of Anna Paquin's mentions. It’s not clear exactly which troll got to her or where they were trolling, but according to Paquin she found comments about the outfit she wore to The Good Dinosaur’s premiere, an animated family film:
After presumably enduring such comments on a daily basis, having it happen for a Pixar movie premiere was apparently the last straw. She kept going:

Everybody needs to reel in a few compliments now and then, Anna, no problem. Nice dress!
