American Pie actress Tara Reid shared some black and white snaps of her, lapping up the sun.
“Nothing better than your friend taking hot artsy pics of you in Palm Springs,” the 45-year-old captioned her post, tagging her pal Taryn Manning, who took the photos.
But, while some loved Reid’s “artsy” shots, others thought the actress looked “too thin”.
The comments prompted Reid to post another photo from the day, this time in-colour, with the actress claiming it was merely “the angle” that made her look so slim.
In a split photo, Reid posted a message from her notes along with the bikini photo of her which read, “To all who made their great comments exposing their hate for my artsy picture I posted yesterday, it was the angle.
“Here is another picture from yesterday to show you I am not too skinny, I have a high metabolism. Anyone with a high metabolism understands it’s impossible to gain weight. All I do is eat.
“To everyone who wrote something nice and stuck up for me, I love you! And keep spreading that love, it is the only thing that will save this world,” she wrote.
Numerous friends and followers supported Reid in the comments.
“You don’t owe anyone an explanation , you’re awesome !” wrote one fan.
Another added: “You’re a queen 👑 🔥🔥🔥 always will be.”
