Elsa Pataky 'beer belly' comment via 'Fashion Police' draws heavy criticism

Elsa Pataky's “beer belly” comment that came during a "Fashion Police" show has ruffled many feathers, and most would say for good reason. The very pregnant wife of Chris Hemsworth was raked over the coals for her red carpet attire, and not everybody was amused. Us Weekly shared the scoop on March 7.

Chris and Elsa walked the red carpet at the Oscars, and Pataky's pregnant belly was front-and-center as they posed for photographs. The duo shared the news in January that they are expecting twins. Leave it to Joan Rivers and her “Fashion Police” crew, however, to take things to the extreme. Co-host George Kotsiopoulos said that the dress was horrible and it looked like Elsa Pataky had a beer belly rather than a baby bump.

Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic also said that they didn't like the dress. Joan Rivers quipped that she knew why Patasky was so huge, as she'd seen her sonogram. With that, Rivers showed a shot of the Ellen DeGeneres selfie that went viral, showing a handful of celebrities all squished together.

E! Online notes that Chris and Elsa already have a daughter together, 1-year-old India Rose, and the couple's twins are due this spring. Did “Fashion Police” go too far by referring to Elsa Pataky's “beer belly” in the dress?
