Amber Heard: “Actresses are constantly asked to choose between one of two archetypes: sexy or not”

On the fact that she hates playing the sex bomb in movies:

“It’s been what I’ve fought for since the first day on the scene. Superficial is far less interesting primarily because it’s the result of things that are out of my control, so it’s independent of one’s character and how one looks. It can help define one’s character but looks in and of themselves are not the result of any hard work, bravery, substance, etc. I fought really hard to find roles that weren’t defined by their sexuality. I’ve been in this business for 12 years or something and it’s incredibly frustrating to be able to just now be trusted or given roles like this because this industry’s very hard on women, because you’re constantly asked to choose between one of two archetypes: sexy or not. And within the ‘not,’ you perhaps can acquire for yourself a few different traits, but they’re going to be severely limited. The story’s not going to be about you. In the former, it’s completely unfulfilling work to undergo and it’s not fulfilling for an audience to watch. It’s incredible frustrating that a system is in place where you have to choose one or the other. I should not have to choose to be taken seriously or to be beautiful. I finally get to do a role without any of that sh*t, it’s about a character and her issues and her problems and her journey.”

Chrissy Teigen Vows to Never Photoshop Her Pictures Again

Chrissy Teigen recently posted online a photo without filters or Photoshop to show us that even models don’t look like in the flawless magazine-ready images. Her caption:

Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!

The model continued to explain why she chose to post the image in a talk-show last week:

I actually am working on a cookbook and I was bumping around in the kitchen and the door handle would just nick me every single time. And I was actually just taking a picture of the bruises and then I saw the stretch marks in there.

And I have those apps, the Facetune and Photoshopping ones, and I just didn’t feel like doing it anymore – and I’m never doing it again, because I think we forget what normal people look like now. The standard is so ridiculous. I mean, people are nip-tucking [their pictures].

It’s gotten to a point where they’re not smoothing their skin anymore. They are actually changing the shape of their body and everybody else – nobody can compare to that when you’re fixing yourself so much. It’s so unfair. It started with Botox and everything, of course, but now it’s just grown into this Photoshop phenomenon and I’ve seen these women in person, they are not like that. Please know that. I’ve shot in barely anything with them and it’s just amazing what people do to tweak themselves.

… says Chrissy.
