Women Hating on Women: In an interview with Access Hollywood, the actress slammed women who critique other women in the media saying, “When girls are just mean to each other. I think that we are just so unsupportive. When I watch these shows and the media and I watch the women on these televisions shows pointing to these women and judging them and calling them ugly and calling them fat. It’s just like, where have we come? Why are we here? Why are we doing this to each other?"
