LOS ANGELES (April 18, 2014) Actress Kim Novak, 81, is speaking out about the criticism she received for how she looked on stage at the Academy Awards ceremony last month.
Novak, 81, the star of "Vertigo" and other classic films, said the comments amount to bullying and made her reluctant to go out into public.
She says she has decided to fight back against the jabs that were leveled against her and another veteran actress, Liza Minnelli.
In an interview and open letter, Novak says she's determined to speak out against what she called "bullies" who shouldn't be allowed to affect people's lives.
