'Yellowjackets' star Melanie Lynskey opens up about being body shamed during 'Coyote Ugly' movie
Melanie Lynskey joined her fellow "Yellowjackets" co-stars for a new interview where the actress discussed the body shaming she experienced early in her career while filming "Coyote Ugly."  Lynskey played Gloria in the 2000 comedy about a songwriter Violet Sanford (played by Piper Perabo) who gets a job at an NYC bar run by women.  Tawny Cypress, Juliette Lewis and Christina Ricci were the others participating in the interview with The Hollywood Reporter where Lynskey discussed her experience filming "Coyote Ugly."  When describing the beginning of her career playing the "best friend from Jersey" in "Ugly Coyote" she told the outlet. "I was already starving myself and as thin as I could possibly be for this body, and I was still a (size) four."  Lynskey continued and said "that were already people putting a lot of Spanx on me in wardrobe fittings and being very disappointed when they saw me, the costume designer being like, ‘Nobody told me there would be girls like you.’ Really intense feedback about my physicality, my body, people doing my makeup and being like, ‘I’m just going to help you out by giving you a bit more of a jawline and stuff." "Yellowjackets" star Melanie Lynskey opened up about the body shaming she faced while filming "Coyote Ugly."  ( David Livingston/Getty Images) Lynskey said that while she was working on the film, the feedback was constantly "you're not beautiful." She talked about the difficulty of hearing the things she did when she was in her early twenties.

James Caan’s Legacy: The Intense Actor Saw Hollywood Change – and Change Again
Sanford Meisner.Television kept him busy through the early 1960s, but his breakthrough (not counting a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance in Billy Wilder’s “Irma La Douce”) was in the exploitation film “Lady in a Cage.” He played one within a group of delinquents terrorizing de Havilland, who herself was a wealthy poet trapped inside an elevator during a blackout. It’s a lesser entry in the post–“What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” genre of Grand Dame Guignol horror movies, but Caan’s intensity and ferocity – less focused than it would be later – was already very much on display.Later in the decade, he made the decision to pivot from TV to movies, even turning down a series role, saying, “I want to be an actor, not a millionaire.” His early big-screen work included titles like Howard Hawks’ “Red Line 7000,” Robert Altman’s sophomore theatrical feature “Countdown,” Curtis Harrington’s “Games,” Coppola’s “The Rain People” and an adaptation of John Updike’s “Rabbit, Run.” Each film garnered varying degrees of cult success, but none made money at the time, giving Caan the dreaded “box-office poison” brand.After being offered the role multiple times, Caan finally relented to do another small-screen project: the 1971 football tear-jerker “Brian’s Song,” which earned him rave reviews and an Emmy nomination.
