Before the premiere of ABC’s “Dirty Dancing” on Wednesday, Sarah Hyland needed to get a few things off of her chest regarding recent comments about her weight. The “Modern Family” actress shared her statement on the body-shaming comments on Wednesday night via Twitter.
“I’d like to address something that has not only been brought up on Twitter but has been HEAVILY discussed by all of you in my Instagram comments,” Sarah began. That something happens to be her weight and how people find her to be too skinny. “No one’s head should be bigger than their body but considering I’ve basically been on bed rest for the past few months, I’ve lost a lot of muscle mass,” she continued to explain her situation.
Sarah isn’t shy about how much she loves to indulge on junk food, but the star says that not being able to workout has been “very upsetting.” “I write this because I have been accused of promoting anorexia in, ironically enough, an anti bullying post,” she wrote. “Am I bothered by my appearance right now? Well it’s never fun to look in the mirror and see your hard work at the gym fade away,” Sarah said.
While she didn’t get into much detail about why she’s been on bed rest, Sarah did reveal that she is currently taking Prednisone, a drug commonly used to treat allergic disorders, skin conditions, ulcerative colitis, lupus and arthritis among other ailments.
