The Last of Us star retaliates against an uninformed fashion model for bizarre criticism

The Last of Us star retaliates against an uninformed fashion model for bizarre criticism ...

Melanie Lynskey, an actor, has some dark words for anyone who criticizes her appearance on social media.

The Last of Us star slammed her opponents on Twitter, singled out a former model and reality TV star who said Lynskey's body type was unsuitable for the role of Kathleen. Curry suggested that Terminator star Linda Hamilton would have been more appropriate as a post-apocalyptic activist.

Lynskey noted that Curry based her remarks on a photo from a fashion magazine. Moreover, she stated that her role in The Last of Us was a tactician, not an enforcer, and that she did not need to be powerful.

Curry won the first season of America's Next Top Model in 2003. In 2005, she appeared on The Surreal Life, where she met Christopher Knight, a former child star who played Peter Brady on The Brady Bunch.

Tyra Banks, the former host of America's Next Top Model, was summoned by one user to rescue Curry.

Another user defended Lynskey and chastised Curry for their remarks.

Some questioned whether it was appropriate to use an unrelated photo to demonstrate that Lynskey was not suitable for the role. They also recognized that Curry's remark about Lynskey reflects her limitless imagination.

Charisma Carpenter, a Dynasty actor, came to Lynskey's defense and encouraged Curry to reflect on her internalized misogyny.

Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin, the showrunners for The Last of Us, have a different perspective on Lynskey than the former Surreal Life star. Mazin said in an interview with the show's official podcast that he couldn't see anyone else as Kathleen, and Druckmann said, "It feels like the role was created for her."

The Last of Us airs on HBO Max on Sundays.
