The Hollywood actress was as "appalled" as the rest of us upon seeing the offensive poster for her animated movie Red Shoes & The 7 Dwarfs, which appeared to imply that being fat equated to being ugly.

After model Tess Holliday accused the movie of body-shaming, Chloe immediately set the record straight with the tweets: "I have now fully reviewed the marketing for Red Shoes, I am just as appalled and angry as everyone else, this wasn't approved by me or my team.

"Pls know I have let the producers of the film know. I lent my voice to a beautiful script that I hope you will all see in its entirety.

"The actual story is powerful for young women and resonated with me. I am sorry for the offense that was beyond my creative control."
