Hollywood heavyweight Renee Zellweger lashed out at media speculation that she underwent plastic surgery to change her appearance.
In a blog entry for the Huffington Post titled “We Can Do Better” Zellweger said she’ll “make some claim on the truths of my life.”
“This fact is of no true import to anyone at all, but that the possibility alone was discussed among respected journalists and became a public conversation is a disconcerting illustration of news/entertainment confusion and society’s fixation on physicality,” the Oscar winner wrote.
She expressed some of the same anger with tabloids that Jennifer Aniston complained about in her Huffington Post blog post last month.
Zellweger said “tabloid speculations become the subject of mainstream news reporting.”
“It’s no secret a woman’s worth has historically been measured by her appearance,’ Zellweger said.
“Too skinny, too fat, showing age, better as a brunette, cellulite thighs, facelift scandal, going bald, fat belly or bump?” she continued.
“Ugly shoes, ugly feet, ugly smile, ugly hands, ugly dress, ugly laugh; headline material which emphasizes the implied variables meant to determine a person’s worth, and serve as parameters around a very narrow suggested margin within which every one of us must exist in order to be considered socially acceptable and professionally valuable, and to avoid painful ridicule.”
She ended her post by asking that we pay more attention to “our many true societal challenges and how we can do better.”
