Shannen Doherty has been struggling with Hollywood stereotypes for a long time.
The star of the popular 90s TV series Charmed and Beverly Hills 90210 posted a close-up photo of her face without makeup on Instagram, claiming that she opposed Hollywood beauty standards.
The actress in the caption to the picture noted that she was depressed by the abundance of female faces with botox, braces and fillers in the cinema. She encouraged women to love themselves and embrace their natural beauty. Shannen added that after oncology, she finally accepted herself and wants to see “natural women.”
“End of the stereotypes that magazines and Hollywood are trying to draw us into. I want to see women like me, ”said the actress.
Later, Doherty posted a photo with her friend, explaining that it shows two ladies without face-tuning, enjoying life in a cafe in Malibu.
There are many words of gratitude and support in the comments. Fans called Doherty beautiful and adorable: “I totally agree with your position”, “Your words make you even more attractive”, “We need more people like you”, “Thank you for helping us accept ourselves”, “I adore you , you’re the best!”
We will remind, six years ago, the actress was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was treated for a long time, underwent surgery, but a year ago, doctors reported that oncology had developed to the fourth stage. At the same time, Shannen does not give up – she recently started acting in the action movie “The Fortress”, where the hero of Bruce Willis rescues a “Die Hard” nursing home from terrorists.
