Quote of the Day: Penélope Cruz
In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Penélope Cruz opines:
I would close down all those teenage magazines that encourage young girls to diet. Who says that to be pretty you have to be thin? Some people look better thin and some don’t. There is almost a standard being created where only thin is acceptable. The influence of those magazines on girls as young as 13 is horrific.
I would say that there is more than “almost” a beauty standard where only thin is acceptable. But it’s heartening to see a celebrity publicly negate the idea that you have to be thin to be good looking. Now if only she can convince the rest of Hollywood and all those 13 year old girls.
