Melanie Lynskey joined her fellow "Yellowjackets" co-stars for a new interview where the actress discussed the body shaming she experienced early in her career while filming "Coyote Ugly."  Lynskey played Gloria in the 2000 comedy about a songwriter Violet Sanford (played by Piper Perabo) who gets a job at an NYC bar run by women.

Tawny Cypress, Juliette Lewis and Christina Ricci were the others participating in the interview with The Hollywood Reporter where Lynskey discussed her experience filming "Coyote Ugly."  When describing the beginning of her career playing the "best friend from Jersey" in "Ugly Coyote" she told the outlet. "I was already starving myself and as thin as I could possibly be for this body, and I was still a (size) four."  Lynskey continued and said "that were already people putting a lot of Spanx on me in wardrobe fittings and being very disappointed when they saw me, the costume designer being like, ‘Nobody told me there would be girls like you.’ Really intense feedback about my physicality, my body, people doing my makeup and being like, ‘I’m just going to help you out by giving you a bit more of a jawline and stuff."
