The former X-Men star was asked for her thoughts on "the new generation of models, such as Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid" in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, and she appeared to make it clear she was not a fan.

Romijn was quoted as suggesting the new crop of models are more famous for "their social media presence" than they are for their fashion credentials, adding, "No one has proven yet that numbers of followers translates to revenue. It is frustrating.

"I know a lot of people - legitimate fashion people - can't stand it, hate it that these social media stars are now the supermodels in fashion. They are not true supermodels."

But on Wednesday (27Apr16), Rebecca hit Twitter to insist she wasn't attacking Kendall and Gigi directly.

She wrote: "hey @kendalljenner @gigihadid don't believe the #clickbait. Never talked smack about you. Both amazing & beautiful."
