Some young, hot celebs want to get even hotter, so they're going under the knife. I think it's sending a really bad message to millions of young girls.
Plastic surgeons in Hollywood are doing boffo box office these days. It used to be that their "sweet spot" was actresses who were 40ish. Now, 20-year-olds are signing up for new noses, lips, boobs, you name it.
Here's the deal. A lot of these high-profile, young starlets already look good/great. True enough, they could look even better with a tweak here or there, but to most young girls they look amazing.
So what's the message here. An insecure 15-year-old who idolizes a certain young star watches the sudden transformation. I think the way that translates is that the young star must have hated the way she looked. How do you hate the way you look when you look good already? We'll that's the altered state of reality created by these 20-something makeovers. It validates hating the way you look, therefore hating yourself.
I realize that a star has every right to go under the knife and also that there is peculiar pressure to look at the top of your game in Hollywood. But the collateral damage done to the millions of girls who are watching on the sidelines is very troublesome.
