Supermodel Rachel Hunter has slammed Teri Hatcher's recent weight loss, declaring the DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star's face looks older as a result of her super-slim figure.

The former wife of Rod Stewart has lambasted older women, including the 40-year-old actress, for their obsession with being thin, because it ages their faces prematurely.

Hunter, 36, says, "Catherine Deneuve once said that as a woman gets older, she has to choose between her face and her bottom - I'd choose my face within two seconds.

"When women get too skinny, like TERI HATCHER, it shows on their faces and ages them."
