On feeling insecure at the beginning of her career:

‘Trying to find my value in an industry that judges you on everything that you’re not versus everything that you are. Not thin enough, not pretty enough, not ethnic enough, while also being too thin, too ethnic, too pretty the very next day.’

… says 36 year-old Meghan.

She obviously has a warm and exotic beauty, and I can’t believe that this could have been a problem for “the industry”. Too ethnic, too thin, not pretty enough: are those the only critics that she had to face in her career? If so, she should consider herself a lucky person, because I would have think that the main obstacle for her career were the lack of talent, not else.

Well, as an actress you cannot take comments personally as the director has a character and that characters characteristics in mind and its basically just luck whether you fit the bill or not.

“An industry that judges you on everything that you’re not versus everything that you are” not trying to invalidate her experiences, but that isn’t a TV/movie exclusive thing. When a job opening requires knowing at least 3 foreign languages and someone who only speaks English while being great at everything else, they won’t get the job either. Being so bothered by scruitiny and marrying into the royal family is also a bit ironic but good for her if she’s happy.

exactly. celebs always try to collect victim points for being “criticized” when they literally chose a job based solidly off their looks and demographics. Marrying into the royal family is trading privacy for wealth, a wikipedia page, and blogs dedicated to every pair of shoes she’s ever worn. All listings for acting parts/modeling have hard demographic descriptions. For example: Harry Potter: 9yo, tall, skinny, pale, green eyes, dark hair, not terribly attractive If Markle went for this part would she cray that her “skin was too dark” or that she “was too curvy and attractive.” When you don’t meet a… Read more »

She’s so beautiful, but her engagement interview came off as super fake. The wat she was just staring up st him, it was over the top. Watch it if you haven’t already. This could be a bad move on Harrys part. Her last marriage lasted all of a year and a half. He better find out what they all that was about before tieing up his 40 million dollar fortune to her name.

I’d never seen any interview with her and I felt the same. I’m actually surprised that more people didn’t notice that as I thought it was so obvious. The staring into his eyes with this “up and down” sort of motion of hers, the exaggerated lovey dovey attitude… felt super fake to me. It is possible she was just nervous knowing her every move would be scrutinized, and I hope that’s what it was, and that she’s genuinely in love with him, but that interview gave me really bad vibes.

Wow. Sour grapes? Sounds like neither of you has ever been madly, passionately in love before. Also, some people aren’t afraid to show their true feelings. She probably had some nerves too, she is holding his hand rather tightly. But they seem very genuine and happy to me. Speaking as someone who is just as lovey dovey and madly in love with her husband!

Yes, agree. Hope for the best for them, but something rubbed me the wrong way…she seemed just a little too pleased with the cameras. Maybe in trying to seem natural and at ease she’s coming off as disingenuous?

One thing that gives me pause (speaking as an American here) is that American girls tend to have a romantic view of the monarchy without any of the reverence or respect for it. Hope she knows what she’s in for. Ah, well, good luck to them.

This touched me on a personal level growing up as a “bi-racial” looking person. It can feel like since you can’t be put in a “box”, you don’t belong. A friend used to call me a “victim of the swirl”. With age and maturity, you appreciate it- but as a younger person, it’s challenging. And she was in Hollywood, so her looks are a big part of her qualifications, so to speak. That being said, she’s lovely and being an actress/television seems like a really good internship for princesses. Grace Kelly & Queen Letizia come to mind. They seem adept… Read more »

She has great skinny legs. And she rocks the pencil skirt imo.

Her acting career was short lived. And… I can’t say that’s a bad thing…

About her as a person, I remember reading some sketchy things about money problems and what not a couple years ago…

That second picture is way too cute. I do wish them the best. Weird, weird match though. But oh well. And tiny bit jealous of Meghan. I have also a soft spot for famous/rich gingers. LOL.

She has a pretty face and she radiates. Her body however seems to be hard to work with: boxy, short, wide torso with these extremely skinny legs. If she wanted more meat on her legs and thus gain weight, it would just go to her waist making her even more of an apple shape. This shape is extremely hard to dress.

As for her complaint… This is just life, being female.
