A picture speaks a thousand words. But for the snide sorts who gave her jip for chosen Golden Globes guna, Gabory added a few words to stress the point.

The 30-year-old - who sported a floor-length silver gown to the Golden Globes - was praised for her witty response to the criticism, with nearly 25,000 people retweeting her message.

She later added: "Yay! Everyone is so wonderful and supportive of my shade! This might be a problem down the line. Thank you! #notmyjetthough #imnotthatfancy (sic)"

The star of Precious, American Horror Story and The Big C - who also attended the FOX Golden Globes after-party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel - has had to deal with a lot of  criticism about her weight over the years, but she has always insisted she is happy with her size.

She previously said: "I've never been a small girl. One day I had to sit down with myself and decide that I loved myself no matter what my body looked like and what other people thought about my body. I got tired of feeling bad all the time. I got tired of hating myself."
