Denise Richards, former Bond Girl and "Wild Things" actress, has been praised for her looks and slender figure for years but several outlets have speculated that she may have lost too much weight.
The 42-year-old actress and mother of three was asked about the recent attention by the TV show "Extra" at the Radio Disney Music Awards on Saturday.
"I don't know why lately I've been getting so much flack for it," Richards said. "I have a very healthy lifestyle and I'm busy. I have a daughter who's almost 2 that I carry all the time. She's just under 30 pounds. What bothers me is I have three daughters, and I'm such an advocate for health and fitness ... in moderation. We eat ice cream all the time. I had grilled cheese before we got here."
Richards attended the Radio Disney Music Awards with her and ex-husband Charlie Sheen's two daughters, 9-year-old Sam and 7-year-old Lola. She and the latter child also appeared on stage together to present an award to Ross Lynch, who won the prize for Video VIP - Best Music Video for his clip "Heard It On The Radio."

Lola told OTRC.com correspondent JJ Snyder that Selena Gomez and Zendaya are among her favorite singers.
Richards guest starred on the Disney Channel show "Kickin' It" in 2012 and appears in the new ABC Family series "Twisted," which premieres on June 11. The actress plays a mother of a teenager with a troubled past who becomes a suspect in a mysterious criminal case involving a female student who is found dead.
"She's a little bit more inappropriate than I am, but it's fun, it's kind of fun to play that," Richards told OTRC.com, regarding her role.
On Monday, April 29, the actress shared an Instagram photo of a doughnut from the set of "Twisted."
"Yum!" she Tweeted. "And yes I ate it....#craftservice #junkfoodonset."
