If that’s the case, then why is she Photoshopped in her L’Oreal ads?
From Daily Mail: While Instagram filters may add that extra something to our selfies, legendary actress Dame Helen Mirren insists they are ‘on the way out.’
The L’Oreal Paris Ambassador, 73, made the comment while speaking about how the representation of women is starting to become more realistic in tandem with the #MeToo movement. ‘Filters are on the way out, I promise you,’ she told Grazia. ‘Because it was a lovely thing to be able to do but the whole “Look at me, don’t I look gorgeous? Look everybody…”
She added: ”As everybody does it, very soon people will go: “No, I’m not doing that, it’s much more interesting to not do that!”‘
But the Academy, Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress revealed that she’s still a sucker for an Instagram make-up tutorial. ‘I love the people showing you how to do make-up on Instagram,’ she told the publication. ‘People loved that before and after Instagram of me with absolutely no make-up on and then with it on. Both totally unfiltered.’
The British actress has taken to Instagram in the past to show her non-filtered and no make-up selfies – including when she got a blow-dry before the Oscars.Dressing in a bathrobe, she captioned the down-to-earth post: ‘Very before .. Richard and Joe and Lee work their magic what did you think? it all came naturally?’
The star then showed off the results, posing with her makeup artists and hair team, while looking stunning in a bright pink gown.
Dame Helen Mirren went on to explain that one thing that always irked her was the cosmetics industry using youthful models in their advertisements – as it excludes people including her own generation. “It’s extremely annoying to women of my generation and others following mine to have beauty products sold on a 15-year-old face,’ she said.
‘The minute you use the word beauty, the people who feel like they are not beautiful are immediately excluded.’
Despite her sky-rocketing career, the legendary actress has previously told how she’s been plagued with insecurities all of her life. she said: ‘I have experienced insecurity all my life, and I still do on a daily basis. I remember having these panic attacks but not at the obvious moments.’
