Since I woke up in a good mood despite it only being Thursday (Friday is my all-time favorite day of the week), I’m not going to spoil it by ranting about nothing I can really change. I won’t go into the whole women’s movement or whine about women’s suffrage- I’ll just talk about this (very briefly) on this person at face value (insert the joke).
That’s the person that seems to be the hot topic in celebrity news as of late. I couldn’t check my email without seeing her face. It seems her recent appearances have re-ignited the seemingly gasoline-infused topics surrounding the aging of women in Hollywood- which in turn trickles down to the aging of women everywhere else. I can’t figure out for the life of me why these media outlets hype this up so much? They should be the most understanding of how important it is to look a certain way and how youthfulness equates to job offers which equates to pay. Unless Zellweger went and got herself educated like Eva Longoria– her future as an actress is dependent on her desirability as well as talent. I read somewhere that while the pay of male actors is unaffected by age, the salaries of actresses tends to top out at around the age of 34.
She has her reasons to do whatever she wants to do to her body, cosmetically. For that, I wish she would’ve responded with a, “Yeah I got surgery done- so freakin’ what?” versus the lengthy response about how she started taking care of herself and used her time away from the cameras to rest and blah, blah, blah. I was hoping for a bolder response, yes I was indeed.
Again I’m not wanting to prod or poke at this dreadful issue but it’d be nice to shut the critics up about it, if only for a few minutes (or months or years…).
Have a good day you all!
