“I would like to sincerely thank you for the photos you published of me last Friday. On top of trying to remember my lines, run between the ocean and rain in 9 degree weather, and deliver a performance in which I had to appear believably warm, I had the added pleasure of being snapped by your caring and reasonable paparazzi,” she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post.”
The post continued: “I would like to thank them for choosing the most unflattering pictures possible from that day and using them to write an article about me which was designed to make me look awful, suggest I am too fat for my clothes and allow my appearance to be a topic of discussion. “
"I would like to invite the journalist who wrote that article to join me running in and out of the ocean in a bikini, being photographed by a stranger who provoked the camera crew, and look flawless for the entire duration of that set.”
The actress then went on to address people who left “fat shaming” comments on the article.
“Finally, to the delightful people who wrote fat shaming comments under that article: how would you feel if someone said those things about you? Or if they made your loved one cry because they said it to them? These are the types of comments that lead to the development of depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.”
The actress recently delighted fans by sharing an inside look behind the scenes of daily life at Summer Bay.
Sophie, who plays Ziggy on the long running Australian soap, took to Instagram yesterday evening to post a photo showing her having fun with her co-star Patrick O'Connor who stars as Dean.
She captioned the pic: "Picked a winner?"
