Denise Richards may be busy, but she's not too busy to eat! The 42-year-old actress is defending her toned figure after recent reports criticized her for looking too skinny.

"I don't know why lately I've been getting so much flack for it," the mother of three told Extra on Saturday, Apr. 27. "I have a very healthy lifestyle and I'm busy."
