Minnie Driver responds after fans comment on her weight: 'I know I'm thin at the moment'

Minnie Driver unintentionally worried fans with an Instagram photo over the weekend. The Speechless star, 48, shared a snap from a photo shoot with One Kings Lane, and while she meant to show off her killer jumpsuit, her followers were more concerned about her thin frame.

“Beautiful, but please eat more,” one person wrote.

“Please don’t get thinner than this,” another Instagram user commented.

“I wish I knew you as a friend, because friends tell friends to ‘maybe [put] on a couple pounds’ you’re scaring me love,” one woman added.

Driver responded directly to the above fan, telling her not to be alarmed. “I promise I’m ok,” the actress exclaimed. “I know I’m thin at the moment , but I’m genuinely not unhealthy. Thank you for you kind concern x”

Driver has talked before about how she loves using social media platforms like Twitter to engage with fans.

“I’m mad about it!” she told ABC News in 2014. “It’s where I get my news from these days. … As a celebrity, it’s having a forum where you can answer the nonsensical rubbish that is written about you or not engage with that. It’s given a little bit of control back. I love it.”

The actress exclaimed that it’s like reading social media postcards from one person to another.

In the same interview, Driver also remarked about how she keeps her fit frame. “I surf and I do ballet,” she said. “I don’t really do the gym at all.”
