Minnie Driver: 1; body critics: 0.
Just weeks after she quit Twitter because of cruel comments made about her body in a bikini, Driver delivered an epic shutdown to those very critics by tweeting a photo of her nude spread in Allure magazine.
If you want people to stop taking about how you look in a bikini, let them see you naked. It tends to shut them up:) pic.twitter.com/D5WkmRqE1Z

The 44-year-old appears naked in the May 2014 issue of Allure magazine.
"I never could have done this when I was 25 -- no way," she said of mustering the gusto to strip down for the shoot. "All I saw then were the flaws. I still see the flaws, but I see what's great more -- and I've got a banging body."
On April 8, Driver slammed people who had hateful things to say about photos of her wearing a swimsuit taken by paparazzi while she was on vacation with her 5-year-old son, Henry.
"God some people are horrible," she tweeted at the time, per Us Weekly. "You try being photographed when you don't know it's happening, when you're on holiday with your kids." Adding, "I'm out of this Twittersphere for a while. It's too mean sometimes, about your body , about your soul. Not worth it."
