is continuing to shut down critics who claim she’s altered her looks.
The actress explained:
“People have so much to say about Lena Dunham getting naked on Girls. To me, that is more of a problem. That’s where it’s unfair: the judgment that is put on women for how we look. If you’re looking bad, you have to cover up. If you’re looking good, you’ve done something or made a deal with the devil.”
As far as her looks specifically, she argued that her glam can completely alter her appearance in photos:
“Being multi-ethnicI’m half Chinese, half whitebrings up a whole set of complications that people don’t even think about when it comes to being photographed. I have more of a white appearance on the outside, but my bone structure is very much Asian. I have high cheekbones and smaller eyes. When you put shimmer on the inside of my eyes, I immediately look cross-eyed. If you put too heavy of an eyelash on me, it looks like my eyes are halfway closed.”
“I posted a picture on Instagram because the glam team had worked very hard. People were like, What did she do to her face?’ A week later, I looked completely different. As an actor, you can be completely transformative and take on different roles. As an individual in the world, it’s a totally different storywe live in a time where there’s so many pictures that bring so much scrutiny. When your face changes because of makeup, it’s hard to let people know that you’re not actually doing surgery or fillers.”
Aside from the interview, Aaron Rodgers love looks absolutely FLAWLESS on the front cover and spread of the magazine!
Keep doing you, girl!
