LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kim Novak is speaking out about criticism about how she looked on stage at last month's Academy Awards.

The 81-year-old star of "Vertigo" and other classic films said the comments amounted to bullying and made her reluctant to go out into public.

But Novak says she has decided to fight back against the jabs that were leveled against her and another veteran actress, Liza Minnelli.

In an interview and open letter, Novak says she's determined to speak out against what she called "bullies" who shouldn't be allowed to affect people's lives.
