Denise Richards has defended herself against claims she is too skinny.

Speaking at the Radio Disney Music Awards at the weekend Richards told Perez Hilton:

“I don’t know why lately I’ve been getting so much flack for it… I have a very healthy lifestyle and I’m busy. I have a daughter who’s almost 2 that I carry all the time. She’s just under 30 pounds. I’m such an advocate for health and fitness… in moderation. We eat ice cream all the time. I had grilled cheese before we got here.”

Earlier this month The Huffington Post reported Richards, 42, had heads turning as she stepped out in California.

Richards' super-svelte frame was noticeable in a billowy sleeveless blouse and skinny jeans as she picked up her daughters from gymnastics class. She paired the casual look with a ponytail and flip-flops.
