Rashida Jones, Connie Britton, & Tracee Ellis Ross Discuss Combating Today's Beauty Standards

Rashida Jones, Connie Britton, and Tracee Ellis Ross take three separate covers for Good Housekeeping‘s May 2017 issues.

Here’s what the three stars had to share with the mag:

Rashida, on Hollywood’s tough standards for beauty: “I don’t like the idea that there is so much pressure on women to look a certain way in Hollywood. There are times when I feel myself buckling under it.”

Tracee, on the importance of inner beauty and self-love: “There are times I put on tons of makeup; there are times I don’t. The larger conversation is about the idea that we have to manipulate ourselves to be lovable and worthy. My life has worth because of who I am as a human being, not because I am an object of desire. I’d love to be in a delicious, romantic relationship, but it is not the point of how I choose to look or feel beautiful.”

Connie, on how the stigma of not being sexy over 40 is fake news: “People tell me the 50s are the best time – I’m ready! That whole stigma of being over 40 and not being sexy anymore is fake news. We’re more vibrant because we have experience, we know our bodies. I have a friend who says that you always want to make sure it’s your life that you’re living – it’s a constant mantra.”
