Tara 42-year-old af­ter Reid slur­ring is fed ac­tress her up. words In was Au­gust, ridiculed dur­ing the a lian news bizarre show. On in­ter­view Oct. 15, on af­ter an she Aus­tra- was re­moved from a Delta Air Lines flight, web­sites claimed it was over her diva be­hav­ior (an ac­cu­sa­tion she quickly de­nied). Crit­i­cism about her thin frame re­mains con­stant. “What do I want to say to my haters? Hate me, I don’t care!” Tara tells In Touch re­porter Diana Cooper dur­ing an in­ter­view on the set of her new movie, The Fifth Boro. “How can peo­ple judge some­one they’ve never met? Leave me alone.” Here, the Shark­nado star, whose mother, Donna, passed away shortly af­ter our in­ter­view took place, opens up about body sham­ing, her love life and the nicest celeb she’s ever worked with. How much at­ten­tion do you pay to what peo­ple say about you on so­cial me­dia and in the press? TR: I mean, I see some stuff, but you can’t fol­low it. These peo­ple sit be­hind com­put­ers trash­ing peo­ple. It’s like, how do you hate some­one you don’t even know? Right. You spoke out af­ter be­ing re­moved from a re­cent flight, say­ing you left be­cause the air­line wouldn’t let your puppy sit with you, which they deny. (Tara has a 3-month-old emo­tional sup­port dog, Beso, but de­clined to re­veal why she has a sup­port dog.) TR: I don’t nor­mally stick up for my­self. I let it go. But it wasn’t right, and I needed to say, “That wasn’t the story.” I’m do­ing so good in my ca­reer and my life right now, I don’t need that kind of s---. What about com­ments about your body? TR: Ev­ery­body has a dif­fer­ent body type. Peo­ple really need to stop body sham­ing be­cause it’s af­fect­ing lit­tle girls. Do you think you're too skinny? TR: Peo­ple are like, “She’s anorexic,” but I’ve been the same [size] in ev­ery movie! What’s your diet like? TR: I’m very healthy. I like to eat pro­tein. I eat chicken ev­ery day. With pro­tein, your body gets leaner and you have more en­ergy. I try to stay away from carbs as much as I can, but I still eat them. And ex­er­cise? TR: I have a puppy! That’s a work­out, trust me. I’m run­ning down hall­ways and back, and he’s faster than me. How’s your love life these days? TR: I’m sin­gle. It’s eas­ier that way. I don’t put pres­sure on my­self, like, “Oh, my God, I’m in my 40s, I bet­ter find some­one to marry.” If it comes, it comes. And kids? TR: I don’t know if I’ll have any. Tell us about your new movie, The Fifth Boro. TR: It’s a love story with a lot of heart. I play a cop. It’s very ex­cit­ing! Are you open to an Amer­i­can Pie re­u­nion? TR: I’d love to do an­other se­quel of Amer­i­can Pie. There’s ac­tu­ally talk about it. It would be really fun. You’ve made six Shark­nado films. Any more of those? TR: No! We are ab­so­lutely done. No more sharks. I’m all sharked out!

HOT TOPIC Tara’s thin fig­ure has sparked eat­ingdis­or­der spec­u­la­tion, which she de­nies, say­ing, “I just have a really fast me­tab­o­lism.”
