Lily James is OVER the drama about her body!
On Monday, the Cinderella star fired back at critics when asked about the controversy surrounding her "tiny" waist.

The actress explained:
"Of course not. On one hand, it's upsetting. On the other hand, it's just boring. Why do women always get pointed at for their bodies? And why is this whole thing happening that I'm constantly having to justify myself? International Women's Day has just gone, and it just feels just a bit sad that it's still happening. And, you know, I'm very healthy and I always have been."
James does have a point! We wonder if Lily is friends with feminist and fellow Brit, Emma Watson — if not, the two should totally hang out!
The actress elaborated:
"Obviously I haven't been under such a limelight before, but I really have been lucky because I've always had a very healthy attitude towards my body, so that's why in a way it's confusing me, because I don't feel like it's an issue…and it's a costume! Yeah. That's all I can say about that."
As long as Lil is happy with her body that's all that matters!
The 25-year-old's co-star, Richard Madden, added:
"I can vouch for Lily on this. That's her real waist. I held it. I know how tiny it was. And she did eat. She eats like a boy!"
It's sweet of Richard to jump to Lily's defense — what real life Prince Charming!
So, do YOU think Lily is being unfairly attacked for her tiny frame?
