"I wanted to share this with you because this is sexy as hell but mostly because I was meant to go to London for the opening of I Feel Pretty and my doctors have told me that’s a no go," the actress continued. "I’m really disappointed selfishly to miss this trip because I love London and Europe in general and all the great people (food) there."

"But I need to put my health first," she went on. "I am so grateful for all the support the movie is getting. I hope people check it out in England and everywhere else in the world. It’s sweet and fun and you will walk out feeling better. Which is something I hope to feel soon too."
