Mayim Bialik: “The upside of not being a ‘perfect ten’: no men asking me to meetings in their hotel rooms”

41 year-old Big Bang Theory actress Mayim Bialik recently wrote an article for the New York Times in response to the numerous sexual harassment and assault claims involving Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein – and she received a lot of criticism for her piece, with various sources claiming that she is ‘victim-blaming’:

I entered the Hollywood machine in 1986 as a prominent-nosed, awkward, geeky, Jewish 11-year-old — basically a scrawnier version of the person I am today. Back then we didn’t have the internet or social media or reality TV, but I didn’t need any of that to understand that I didn’t look or act like other girls in my industry, and that I was immersing myself in a business that rewarded physical beauty and sex appeal above all else.

I grew up constantly being teased about my appearance, even from members of my family; my nose and chin were the main objects of discussion. As a teenager I started obsessing over the possibility of a nose job so that I would look more like Danica McKellar, with a chin job to balance things out. Soon I wondered if I should get breast implants to look more like Christina Applegate, who got so much attention for her curves. I consistently felt like a troll compared to many of my contemporaries. A “TV Guide” critic described me, in a review of the pilot episode of “Blossom,” as having a “shield-shaped” face of “mismatched features.” I never recovered from seeing myself that way.

I always made conservative choices as a young actress, largely informed by my first-generation American parents who were highly skeptical of this industry in general — “This business will use you up and throw you away like a snotty tissue!”— and of its men in particular: “They only want one thing.” My mom didn’t let me wear makeup or get manicures. She encouraged me to be myself in audition rooms, and I followed my mother’s strong example to not put up with anyone calling me “baby” or demanding hugs on set. I was always aware that I was out of step with the expected norm for girls and women in Hollywood.

As a “nontraditional”-looking woman, I came back to an industry that had me auditioning for the “frumpy friend” or the “zaftig secretary,” though I eventually landed a role that has earned me four Emmy nominations. Is it a surprise that I play an androgynous, awkward, late bloomer?

And yet I have also experienced the upside of not being a “perfect ten.” As a proud feminist with little desire to diet, get plastic surgery or hire a personal trainer, I have almost no personal experience with men asking me to meetings in their hotel rooms. Those of us in Hollywood who don’t represent an impossible standard of beauty have the “luxury” of being overlooked and, in many cases, ignored by men in power unless we can make them money.

I still make choices every day as a 41-year-old actress that I think of as self-protecting and wise. I have decided that my sexual self is best reserved for private situations with those I am most intimate with. I dress modestly. I don’t act flirtatiously with men as a policy.

And if — like me — you’re not a perfect 10, know that there are people out there who will find you stunning, irresistible and worthy of attention, respect and love. The best part is you don’t have to go to a hotel room or a casting couch to find them.

Iskra Lawrence’s ‘Model Poses That Deceive You on Instagram’

edcd8f53-4aa1-4ef7-9b56-d763eccc48d1 - Iskra Lawrence's 'Model Poses That Deceive You on Instagram'

27 year-old plus model Iskra Lawrence is an avid militant for body positivity – and she recently partnered with Elle to create a video that shows how posing in certain ways can make one look much slimmer.

On her video:

I wanted to get super real and show u how drastically and instantly ppl can change how they look simply by posing!
Let alone good lighting, high quality cameras and photoshop! I’ve talked about this a lot in the past but in this video I show you 7 ways in which posing can dramatically change how we look. I myself still pose and there’s nothing wrong with moving your body in ways you feel most comfortable or confident but let’s be honest and show the actual process. I’ve been modelling 14years so I learnt some stuff I want to share with you all. Because life’s not perfect, social media lives aren’t Perfect and neither are us or our bodies. And that’s exactly how it’s meant to be! Because we are all imperfectly perfect and 100% unique.

P.S.: According to Wikipedia, Iskra is…

Height: 1.75 m / 5’9”

Weight: 192 lb (87 kg)

Pretty Little Liars Actress Sasha Pieterse Talks about Her 70 Pound Weight Gain

sasha-pieterse-weight-gain - Pretty Little Liars Actress Sasha Pieterse Talks about Her 70 Pound Weight Gain

Pretty Little Liars actress Sasha Pieterse, who is currently on Dancing with the Stars, opened up about her 70 pound weight gain caused by a medical condition. The full story from NY Daily News:

The 21-year-old actress told partner Gleb Savchenko that she had gained nearly 70 pounds over the past two years and only recently discovered the medical condition at the root of it all.

“I gained 70-ish pounds over two years,” she said. “It was really, really hurtful the way people reacted. People were saying stuff like, ‘she’s pregnant, you’re fat.’ They were angry, they were mad that I look like this,” she explained.

Pieterse then shared that she was diagnosed with the hormone imbalance disorder, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), very recently and “finally” she knew what was happening to her.

“’I think most importantly, I’m feeling like me again,” she said. “Being on the show, I’ve lost over 15 pounds.”

On not feeling pretty enough to pursue lead roles:

I just didn’t feel confident in myself, I didn’t feel pretty enough. I thought I’d be a supporting character my whole life and I was struggling with the idea of being the star

I’ve been on sets where I didn’t feel safe, I’ve felt objectified. But as I’m getting older I’m realizing that I can value myself, I’m allowed to.

… says Brie in Net-A-Porter’s The Edit.

Ashley Graham on Rihanna not Using Plus-Sized Models: “It’s sad”

440E29ED00000578-0-image-m-2_1504923763579 - Ashley Graham on Rihanna not Using Plus-Sized Models: "It's sad"

On being disappointed in the fact that Rihanna did not use any plus-sized models in her Fenty show at NYFW:

‘It’s sad.’It’s funny to me, because I’ll look at runways and think, “I’d look so great in those clothes” or “I know curvy women who would look so great in those clothes. I was at Fenty last night, and that was an amazing show. But how dope would it have been to see some curves on the runway?’

… says Ashley.

Models during the Fenty show – Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s 16 year-old daughter:
