Shannon Doherty is praised for talking about aging and how Hollywood does not reflect “women who have embraced their faces.”
On Saturday night, the 50-year-old actress posted a selfie with naked faces along with an inscription sharing her disappointment that she does not see on her screen “women without refills, without Botox, facelift”.
“Watching movies tonight and I noticed that there are few female characters I can connect with,” the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star wrote. “You know, women without fillers, without Botox, without a facelift. Women who hugged their faces and all the experience that showed that.
“I’ve lived,” she continued. “I love that I’ve lived and that my face reflects my life. I’ve been through a lot – yes, cancer, but more than that. I’m embracing me now. Finally. Done with perception magazines and Hollywood trying to turn us into that. I want to see women like me. Women like us. “
Doherty, who announced in early 2020 that her cancer, first diagnosed in 2015, had returned after remission, hit followers who thanked her for her word.
“Thank you. We need more of you,” said Paulina Porizkova, who is also known to feel “invisible” as she gets older.
“You’re beautiful and I love that,” added director Reid Morano.
“Aging is a privilege given to a few,” another follower replied. “You carry your journey wonderfully.”
