“Hello! So just a thing — if you have an opinion about my body, please, please don’t share it with me,” she began.

“Most people are being nice and not trying to be offensive,” she added, “but I am just one real life human being, and it’s really hard to take the weight of thousands of opinions on how you look being sent directly to you every day.”

She continued, “If you have an opinion about me, that’s OK, I understand I’m on TV and that people will have things to think and say, but I beg you not to send it to me directly ❤️.”

Concluding her post, she wrote, “Anyways, here’s a pic of me in my hotel in NY about to go to SNL, it’s unrelated to this post but delighted with my hair in it.”

It’s deeply unsettling and uncomfortable to think that people thought it was alright to inundate Nicola with messages about how she looks — whether well-intentioned or not.  

On Friday, fellow actor Melanie Lynskey — who stars in Yellowjacketsshared a similar sentiment about being frustrated by people’s unsolicited comments on her body.

“The story of my life since Yellowjackets premiered. Most egregious are the ‘I care about her health!!’ people…bitch you don’t see me on my Peloton! You don’t see me running through the park with my child. Skinny does not always equal healthy,” she wrote.

A bewildering and not-at-all difficult-to-execute thought: Leave actors and their bodies alone?
