We know that the entertainment business is image driven and that celebrities are constantly scrutinized for the way that they look. People constantly criticize what they wear, what they look like without makeup (there’s a whole magazine issue devoted to just pictures of that) and some kind of swimsuit edition that magazines do in time for summer.
The pressure to look perfect is all around us, but what happens when it goes too far? Remember when GQ changed Kate Winslet’s noticeably?
Well, if you missed it, she made a very big deal about how she didn’t like for her to body to look differently on the cover than it does in real life. She is a woman who is proud of her body just the way it is and we applaud Kate for doing that. If you work out because you like to be in shape and enjoy doing it, that’s great! We believe in doing what you love. Don’t feel like you need to constantly diet and exercise just so that you can look good.
Even Amy Adams, who’s playing Lois Lane in the new Superman movie, said in an interview with OMG Yahoo, “I’m just not going to be one of those people photographed in a bikini where people are like, ‘OMG, look at Amy! I mean, it might be OMG, but not for the reasons I want…Perfect isn’t normal, nor is it interesting.” When you’re comfortable in your own skin, your confidence will shine through. Remember: it’s what’s on the inside that counts and it’s what people will remember at the end of the day.
