Natalie hit back at a photographer at the premiere

Natalie, who plays Rosie Casals in the film, wrote: "So someone sent me photos of me having what they called a 'wardrobe malfunction' at last weekend's premiere of Battle of the Sexes which was one of the happiest moments of my life thus far. These are pictures they PURPOSELY took up my skirt... These are photographers who go to red carpets to take photos of women to what, embarrass them? Because they have bodies under clothes?"

 

She continued: "I'm there to promote my movie, you're there to take pics you can sell. Pics I'm POSING for, that I've agreed to. Pictures of my face and body, covered in whatever way I see fit. I didn't pose for you to angle your camera up my skirt… Also, JOKES ON YOU, I was wearing skin coloured underwear so you can't actually see my bits. But if you could? I wouldn't be embarrased but YOU should be. What a disgusting, horrifying job you have."
