Emma Watson tells the Guardian “I’m excited about the ageing process”

by on March 31, 2014

In a Guardian article headed “Emma Watson criticises ‘dangerously unhealthy’ pressure on young women” Emma (the former Harry Potter actress) discusses the challenges of being in the spotlight.  In respect to the pressure on looking a certain way she is reported as saying “With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can project an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy. I’m excited about the ageing process. I’m more interested in women who aren’t perfect. They’re more compelling.”

The article has prompted 299 comments already many debating the issue of why women wear make up (and noting that Emma is involved in advertising some brands) whilst some unpacked the issue of age with many suggesting that perhaps she might review her excitement as time passes.  Whatever your view, it is undoubtedly useful to continue to debate how women of all ages are represented in the media.
