Last week, Rose attended a premiere in Sydney, Australia for her new film Pitch Perfect 3.
British tabloid The Daily Mail published photos from her red carpet appearance, making sure to highlight Rose’s thin appearance and the acne on the side of her cheek. They accompanied this coverage with quotes taken from LA dietitian Lisa De Fazio, who once said in an interview of Rose, “Her family and management team need to encourage her to gain some weight before it’s too late.”
The publication also added, “the actress only weighs 44kg, which would make her extremely underweight for a person of 5’7′ – with 61kg being the recommended weight for her height.”
Rose had previous blasted De Fazio for those very comments on Twitter.
“You are reckless and no Hollywood expert should behave the way you do,” Rose said. “Telling a magazine MY ‘manager, friends and family should get involved and help me before it’s too late’ and that my weight is ’44 kilos’ (I’d probably be in hospital if that were true) is so maddening and irresponsible.”
When the Daily Mail published its article, Rose was quick to react.
She reacted to the magazine’s story via Instagram Stories with a powerful rebuttal.
“This acne belongs to me, not them, and you are welcome to it. I never thought I’d see the day I’d leave my beautiful country bawling my eyes out… when I was so excited to come home.”
She further explained why she had acne on one side of her face and not the other.
“Yeah it sucks.. for me,” the actress wrote, “I don’t see how it’s bothering so many others? But I’m a human. It happens.. one side of my face is clear and the other is a mess… Dermatologist says it’s from the bacteria from all the phone interviews I did for PP3 and a reaction to hotel pillow cases (which I already know)…”
Rose also had words about the cruel inquiries into her weight.
Instead of the dozens of photos of me from behind they run only 1 photo to fit their narrative,” Rose wrote. “So when the dailyfail resorts to making news stories compiled purely of people’s ‘comments’ on my [Instagram] page… it’s time to take that away from them to protect everyone” from harmful misinformation. So from the bottom of my heart I am sorry if those stories triggered anything in anyone.
Rose has deactivated comments on her Instagram page, and all we can say is – good for her. Mental health is no joke and we completely agree with any actions Rose takes to protect hers.
