Nicola Coughlan asks fans not to comment on her body
"If you have an opinion about my body please, please don't share it with me."
Derry Girls star Nicola Coughlan has asked fans to refrain from commenting on her body in a recent post on social media.
Taking to Instagram, Nicola wrote: "Hello! So just a thing- if you have an opinion about my body please, please don't share it with me.
"Most people are being nice and not trying to be offensive but I am just one real life human being and it's really hard to take the weight of thousands of opinions on how you look being sent directly to you every day."
She added: "If you have an opinion about me that's ok, I understand I'm on TV and that people will have things to think and say but I beg you not to send it to me directly.
"Anyways here's a pic of me in my hotel in NY about to go to SNL, it's unrelated to this post but delighted with my hair in it."
The Bridgerton actress is not the only star to kindly ask fans to stop commenting on their body.
Last October, Jonah Hill took to social media to make a similar request.
On Instagram, he wrote: "I know you mean well but I kindly ask that you not comment on my body.
"Good or bad I want to politely let you know it's not helpful and doesn't feel good. Much respect."
Adele, similarly, said last year that she was "disappointed" by conversations centred around her body.
During her CBS special - Adele One Night Only - the singer said that she wasn't "shocked" or "phased" by the comments as, she says, her body has been "objectified" throughout her entire career.
She added: "It's not my job to validate how people feel about their bodies."
