Alyssa Milano looks great to us! Just days after her Twitter controversy with Jay Mohr, Alyssa spoke out on the "fat-shaming" comments while promoting her ABC show Mistresses while on Extra.
The 41-year-old actress explained to Extra's Mario Lopez why she tweeted about Mohr's comments. "Well, he made a comment that was not so nice about my weight and I called him out on Twitter about it. I just think he was trying to make a joke and not think about it," said Milano.
Alyssa added, "I heard it actually on Christmas Day and it hurt me, I was affected by it and I wanted to remind him that I'm a human being and that this hurts."
While making an appearance on a radio show, Mohr had attacked the former Who's the Boss star, saying, "It seems like [Alyssa] had a baby and said, 'I don't really give a sh-t'…I read it on her gut." Subsequently, Milano took to her Twitter to talk about the incident, eventually Mohr apologized for the snide remarks -- and on Friday the petite brunette accepted the Subpurgatory star's amends.
During her stop at the television news show, the former child star also commented on the state of "fat shaming." "I think it's an interesting statement about where we are socially that people feel that they can sort of rip a woman's body apart after having a baby. I don't think it's fair," she said.
The actress, who gave birth to son Milo in August 2011, also admitted, "I gained 55 pounds when I was pregnant, I still have 10 more to lose."
Well you definitely look good to us!
We love that the mom has taken the high road through all of this -- more power to ya, Alyssa! You show 'em who's the boss!
