Liv Tyler was left reeling when a journalist grilled her about a weight problem she doesn't have.

The LORD OF THE RINGS star was told she'd be as successful as GWYNETH PALTROW if she "could stay skinny".

She says, "My heart just stopped. I was like, 'I don't want to be Gwyneth Paltrow. I want to be me.' I was really enraged, because that really affected me.

"I just felt like, what a rude and horrible thing to say."
