Alyssa Milano Responds To Jay Mohr’s Insensitive RemarksBy: Amanda Crum - January 2, 2014
Alyssa Milano is well-known for her beauty; as a child actress, she was the inspiration for Ariel in Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”. As a teen, she was on magazine covers every week as the girl we all wanted to either be or make out with. At 41, she’s still insanely gorgeous, but actor and comedian Jay Mohr apparently felt otherwise when they both attended the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards gala last month.
“She’s very tiny, in height…It seems like she had a baby and said, ‘I don’t really give a s–t’…I read it on her gut,” Mohr said in a radio interview. “Somebody sat in the director’s chair and was not wearing Spanx and I was like, ‘Jesus Christ.'”
Milano took to Twitter to respond and ended up receiving some kind words from her fans.[timeout]
.@jaymohr37 So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me. Be well and God Bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife.

@Alyssa_Milano Not even worth it. Please don't believe him for a second. You're beautiful!

Mohr has not responded, but he’s not the first person to criticize a celebrity’s appearance; Ashley Judd wrote a wonderful piece on it last year after she was accused of having had plastic surgery.
