Body shaming is never a good look, and doing so is sure to make Anna Paquin's "True Blood" boil.

A day after wearing a flowy black dress with a floral pattern to a Tuesday premiere of her new Pixar movie, "The Good Dinosaur," the Academy Award-winning actress shot back on Twitter at people who apparently (and inappropriately) critiqued her red-carpet style choice.

"Fun fact: Wearing a dress that is not skintight=Pregnant/invites people 2 call u fat," the 33-year-old tweeted Wednesday afternoon to her nearly 160,000 followers. "I'm neither so thanks 4 that."

Voicing the Tyrannosaurus rex character Ramsey in the animated feature, Paquin attended the event with her husband, fellow "True Blood" star Stephen Moyer, 46.

On multiple occasions, Paquin and Moyer have made a point to live their lives without bowing to public pressure or perceived Hollywood standards. In 2013, they waited about six months to publicly reveal the names of their children; and in July 2014, after "True Blood" had wrapped filming, Paquin showed her Twitter followers that she'd dyed her hair blue with green highlights — much to Moyer's delight.
