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