It’s February, the month of love birds and romantic Hallmark cards. Boyfriends are buying flowers for their girlfriends, and love is in the air. But one very important thing that might be missing is the fulfilling peace of love for our own selves. when you look in the mirror, so you see someone that you love without hesitation? how about when you stand in front of the mirror, in your bra, panties and socks? do you love your body? Our new 10 Woman of the Month boldly said, “yes” to that question. Jamie Lee Curtis, in 2002, bravely shed her picture perfect makeup, hair stylist, and clothes to bare all in a more Magazine photo shoot.
The full page spread of Jamie in a bra and spandex briefs drew a wave of attention from women across the country, gasping in relief to know that someone as spectacular as this American actress actually has a normal body, before the primping and Photoshop touch-ups in most print publications. according to an excerpt from the more Magazine article, she wanted to reveal the truth behind how she really looks.
"I don’t have great thighs,” Jamie Lee told the magazine, “I have very big breasts and a soft, fatty little tummy. and I’ve got back fat… It’s insidious — Glam Jamie, the Perfect Jamie, the great figure, blah, blah, blah. and I don’t want the unsuspecting 40-year-old women of the world to think that I’ve got it going on. It’s such a fraud.” and she won’t stand for it. A veteran of cosmetic surgery, Jamie’s choice to be real with the public follows her realization that authentic self acceptance is the fastest way to true satisfaction. while many people still stand by the benefits of plastic surgery, she argues that no knife will replace the genuine love that women must find for themselves, regardless of wrinkles and rolls.
A woman of true inner and outer beauty, Jamie Lee Curtis addressed a serious need for women today, young and old. we all need to learn how to love our bodies for their true beauty. It helps to know that it can take up to three hours of primping from 13 beauty consultants (Jamie Lee Curtis’s glam photo confession) to achieve the look of magazine cover models. So realistically, we should hesitate before engaging in the game of comparison while standing in the grocery check-out aisle. Quite contrarily, ladies, we are beautiful just the way we are – even while standing in our underwear!
