AceShowbiz - Anna Faris found herself at the center of a social media storm on Tuesday night, October 2, after posting a picture of herself in her underwear.
The 41-year-old actress shared a snap which showed her bent over a rubbish bin while wearing just a long-sleeved black top, boots and a pair of french knickers.
"Having pre-show jitters- so glad Michael Sherman captured it- also I eventually decided to put on pants," Anna captioned the image, which was taken as she prepared for an appearance on U.S. TV show "The Talk".
However, fans were quick to comment on Anna's thin frame in the picture, with some of her followers describing her lithe physique as "alarming."
"This is alarming! I feel this pic is a cry for help, I hope you get the help you need," one wrote, while another added: "You look so unhealthy, eat!"
Following the backlash, Anna deleted the image after just 15 minutes of it being online.
Not all the remarks were negative though, with one fan writing: "You are beautiful at any size. Health is our concern. If you're healthy and happy that's all that matters! Continue to be awesome!"
Speaking recently about her weight, Anna told Women's Health magazine that her busy lifestyle has seen her unintentionally shed the pounds.
"I've never worked on a show where I lost weight, except for Mom," she explained. "I run up and down stairs 30 or 40 times a day from the set to my dressing room, I'm doing this podcast, I've got a 5-year-old. I feel so busy; I don't have a ton of time to indulge in foods I love, like a cheeseburger and fries, with mayonnaise, my favourite condiment. Food's more of an efficiency thing."
Anna is mom to son Jack, now six, with her estranged husband Chris Pratt, who she separated from last year after 10 years together.
