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.

63 Year-Old Christie Brinkley Reveals Her Cosmetic Procedures

christie-brinkley-at-150-years-of-women-fashion-and-new-york-celebration-in-new-york-04-19-2017_1 - 63 Year-Old Christie Brinkley Reveals Her Cosmetic Procedures

The full story from People:

“I wondered if people would think I’m phony and fake,” Brinkley, 63, exclusively tells PEOPLE of using the treatments in a new interview featured in this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday. “But it’s better to be honest and say, ‘Yeah, this is what I do.’”

Her goal was “never to look different,” says the model and author of Timeless Beauty, who has become the spokeswoman for both products, which are owned by the pharmaceutical company Merz North America. “But I’m almost 64. At a certain point, you might need a little something extra. When I look in the mirror, I want to feel like I look as good as I feel. And if you can have something done to feel more confident and better about yourself, then you feel like your face matches your spirit—and my spirit is enthusiastic and energetic.”

First, she got Xeomin (pronounced ZEOmin), which is an injectable that temporarily improves the look of frown lines between the eyebrows. It works by blocking the transmission of signals from nerves to the muscles, which causes muscles to relax and appear smoother. “It’s similar to other botulinum toxins [like Botox],” says Brinkley’s dermatologist Dr. Patricia Wexler of Wexler Dermatology in New York City.

However, it’s a more “purified toxin,” says the dermatologist because it doesn’t use accessory proteins like other products. “Given correctly, you’ll have a very natural look of lift in the area.” A single treatment ranges from $300 to $500 and lasts up to four months.

“I was so afraid to do it,” Brinkley says of trying Xeomin. “But I still feel like myself. I could still move my eyebrows and I feel like I have all my same funny faces. It was like a non-invasive pick-me-up.”

[Her dermatologist also touts Ultherapy which costs around “$1,800 per area treated, and it takes between two to three months to see full results.”]

If there are naysayers to her latest beauty secret reveal, she’s ignoring them. “There are always going to be the people who build themselves up by pulling you down,” she says. “But then there are the women who are supporting women. And if there are little things that I can do that are going to make me feel great, make me look good for my job and that would be selfish of me not to share it,” she says.

On not feeling confident enough to play ‘the hottest blonde ever’:

‘When I was playing Naomi in The Wolf of Wolf Street it was so high-tempo sexy. I was acutely aware that the line in the screenplay was “the hottest blonde ever,” I’m clearly not the hottest blonde ever. I was just terrified that people would see the movie and think “eugh! She’s not that great.”

… says Margot.

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.

Nina Dobrev: “We all feel insecure all the time but that’s completely normal and okay”

On looking flawless in magazines:

Young girls see this image and think that’s what they should be and that’s how they should wake up… [but] It’s so not real—that’s the scariest part.

On keeping it real:

I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis. I try to reflect that on my social media, too. When I do Instagram stories, I’m not all dolled up and glamorous, it’s a peek into my day-to-day life, which is kind of normal and average.’ ‘I get pimples and zits all the time and I deal with them just like anybody else, with zit cream.[But] sometimes I walk out of the house with the zit cream and forget about it. And that’s just life. It’s unpredictable and awkward and we all feel insecure all the time but that’s completely normal and okay and everybody has good days and bad days.

… says 28 year-old Nina.
