Shannen Doherty rejects beauty interventions
Shannen Doherty begins her acting career as a child. Today she is 50 and no longer wants to serve the unrealistic ideal of beauty that Hollywood conveys. She is open about why she likes to forego beauty interventions of any kind.
Actress Shannen Doherty shows herself on her Instagram account at the weekend with an unusually unedited photo. She is neither made up nor does her face seem to have been reworked in any other way. There is an important message behind this post, as the 50-year-old does not want to submit to the Hollywood ideal of beauty for women.
Doherty, who first developed breast cancer six years ago, writes about the honest photo that she became aware of something during a movie night. “I watched movies tonight and realized that there are few female characters I can identify with. You know, women without fillers, without botox, without facelifts. Women who value their face and all the experience that it shows. “
The former “Beverly Hills, 90210” actress strictly rejects beauty interventions. “I lived. I love that I lived and that my face reflects my life. I survived a lot, yes cancer, but more than that. I am hugging now,” continued Doherty.
“Women like us”
She is done with the image that magazines and Hollywood are forcing women. And she wants to see more women like herself. For this she received a lot of praise and approval. For example, it says in the comments: “Beautiful inside and out.” Or: “Thank you. We need more of you”. One user says: “Aging is a privilege that only a few can afford. You carry your journey through life in your beautiful face.”
When he was only eleven, Doherty played in “Our Little Farm”. She became well known in the 1990s in the role of Brenda Walsh in “Beverly Hills, 90210”. This was followed by series such as “Charmed” and various TV movies. In February 2020, it was announced that she was again diagnosed with fourth stage cancer. A few months later, in an interview with the American “Elle”, she announced that the disease was more advanced and incurable.
