Tori Spelling blames Hollywood for her well-publicised gaunt appearance, insisting she feels under constant pressure to stay skinny.
The former teen star shocked fans by stepping out in Los Angeles this month (Feb09) sporting a new super-skinny, waif-like physique.
And Spelling admits she was driven to diet obsessively by Tinseltown's trend to be slim.
She tells Usmagazine.com, "They scrutinise you so much. You try to be the person who says, 'Oh, I don't care,' but I feel the pressure."
"You're out there; you're picture is in every magazine. They're looking at you from every angle, no matter what you do.
"You have to be careful getting out of cars now because they shoot up your skirt. Everything has to look good, and, of course, there's pressure to do so. I definitely feel it."
