Sarah Hyland is many things: mainly a celebrated actress and vocal health advocate with an impressive set of vocal pipes. She’s also a huge fan of bread, FYI.
Taking to Instagram earlier this week, the 27-year-old called out trolls who shamed her for being too skinny and confirmed that she does indeed like carbs (coz human.)
“I’ve been reading some of your DMs and so many of you are like, ‘Girl, you fine but like, eat some bread!’” she said via Instagram stories. “So I would like to put in a request for anyone who is concerned about my bread consumption to send to Wells Adams, because he is the sole person who know about how much bread I consume on a daily basis. Thanks! Love you, mean it, k bye.”
But if that wasn’t enough verification for said haters, her boyfriend (aka, Adams) backed this up 100 per cent.
“Just saw Sarah’s story. Apparently, there are concerns about how much bread she eats. I can vouch for her that she truly is – she’s not a carnivore, she’s a carbivore,” he added on his account.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Sarah’s had to deal with people questioning her over her dietary habits.
Back in May 2017 (post dealing with complications from kidney dysplasia), she recalled some of the negative comments she’d received online.
“’Eat a burger,’ ‘your head is bigger than your body and that’s disguising,’” she tweeted. “And you’re right!... 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. My circumstances have put me in a place where I’m not in control of what my body looks like. So I strive to be as healthy as possible, as everyone should.”
And earlier this year, she told PEOPLE she refused to be scrutinised for her naturally thin frame:
“For me it’s just kind of like a natural reaction [to speak out.] And sometimes it gets too much to where I’m like, okay, I really need to make a statement right now because what is happening is not okay. And it happens all the time,” she said. “People think that because you’re in the public eye you sign up for criticism from random people and strangers. But I’m in this business because I love the craft, and I love the art of it, and I love creating and evoking emotions out of people."
