Hollyweird actress Blake Lively – who supported Hillary Clinton – wants to teach her children about “realistic” beauty standards

blake lively2blake livelyYou be the judge. Is it “realistic” beauty when you go under the knife? At least be honest and own it.

From Cosmopolitan: As a parent, it must be pretty hard to manage the expectations of your children when they reveal what they want to be when they grow up. Sometimes, adults need to push aside thoughts of failure and the realities of a world that allowed Donald Trump to become President and remember what it’s like to be a child with a view that anything is possible. It sounds like that’s exactly what Blake Lively’s parents did when she was growing up.

On Wednesday, the Shallows actress appeared at the L’Oreál Women of Worth gala and spoke on CTV’s eTalk revealed her mother’s advice about self-belief.

“Whatever it was, whether I was doing a school project, I was doing something creative, she would always say, ‘You can’t mess it up’,” she said. “I mean, I could mess it up really severely, but just the fact that she told me I couldn’t almost made me feel like I couldn’t.”

The 29-year-old, who earlier this week was spotted walking through the streets of New York with her husband, actor Ryan Reynolds, said it’s thanks to her mother’s positivity that she was able to try out a career as an actress.

“I took risks and I would do things I otherwise would have limited myself with,” she explained.

The actress has spoken out about the need for parents to teach children about realistic beauty standards and shedding the idea of perfection in the past, and took the opportunity to address the issue again ahead of the gala, specifically on the subject of positivity on social media.

She told eTalk: “I do think we all believe in the same thing, which is everybody wants happiness, everybody wants peace, everybody wants to feel safe and secure.”

  1. Thank you, DCG, for exposing the rank hypocrisy of Blake Lively. Hollyweirdos! We specialize in narcissism, hypocrisy and phony highmindedness!

  2. OK, I’ve seen both photos, and as much as I like women I don’t ‘get the point’ of what was changed for ‘the better,’ if anything. Why did she need surgery to avchieve what cosmetics could have done w/o an operation? Is her nose slightly smaller? But that’s not improved the overall context, has it? What am I missing here?

  3. I wonder why they call it make-up ??????????????????


  4. Is it not bad enough that we must endure the ignorance and idiocy of so-called “A-listers?” Nope…now we must hear the oh so deep ramblings of a B-list flash in the pan. How wonderful.

    Hey Blake, just put another line of coke up your surgically altered proboscis and things will be just fine. Until you need yet another operation to try and salvage what you call a career . Churl syphilitic imbecile…

    • Hello, Ed K! I like your first paragraph for its style and wit. I think I liked her Phace #1 better as she resembles my oldest daughter, who’s declined her earlier male friends suggestions that she get a ‘nose job’ and have her breasts enlarged. Three children later, Nature & breast-feeding enlarged them all they need to be. Once again, ‘Man proposes, but God disposes!’
