On whether the media should provide more realistic body ideals:
To expect that anything put out by Hollywood is going to be realistic is a bit naïve at this point. But that’s me, a 31-year-old woman, talking. If you’re a 15-year-old girl, you look at these bodies and think, How am I going to attain this?
I believe we have a responsibility in terms of disclosure about what’s touched up. More and more actresses are saying, ‘Look what they did to my waist on that photo shoot!’ that is powerful because at least it gives women a chance to express their imperfections. We owe it to girls out there to portray a healthy and true image of ourselves.
