Reactions to the 30-year-old Precious star's satin-like, ivory-colored gown with a jewel-embroidered bodice by Michael Costello Couture ranged from cruel comments about her weight to users questioning her stylist Daniel Musto.

In turn, the reaction to her funny-but-true response was so well-received that she followed up her initial tweet and wrote, "Yay! Everyone is so wonderful and supportive of my shade! This might be a problem down the line. Thank you!"

The actress also clarified that the private plane was not her own with the hashtags #notmyjetthough and #imnotthatfancy.
