I like JLaw but it does bother me when the topic of her body being normal or ‘chubby in Hollywood standards’ comes up. I couldn’t pinpoint it before but this article took the words right out of my mouth.
"The reason Jennifer Lawrence is allowed to be a body-positive role model to young girls and "chubby" women is because she is representative of conventional beauty. Jennifer Lawrence’s public image has been built on a foundation of fat girl drag. She can say she’s "obese" by Hollywood standards, but the claim is laughable when women like Melissa McCarthy also make their living in the same industry and aren’t afforded the privilege of unapologetic expression Lawrence enjoys as a conventionally attractive person."
Coz it’s @0x0x0x0x’s wedding today, my #flashbackfriday goes way back 2008, the last time I had you as a roommate in the “singles’ room”. While being the youngest in the barkada, our rare but meaningful heart to heart talks always made me think that you were wiser/more mature than most of us. To you who always inspired us to be true to one’s self, to always have one’s feet on the ground and to love unconditionally, our best wishes to you! We’re so proud of how you’ve grown up in front of our very eyes and very delighted to see you very happy & in love. Pito is one very lucky guy to have you as his wife. Blessings to your union, now ‘til forever :) Love you, Ro! #pitoandroan
Had a really jampacked & stressful day yesterday but the people I encountered working for these companies, plus a friend helping me out in the most crucial time, lessened my burden in their own ways. Thankful for those wonderful souls.
I must say, going the extra mile to make people feel welcome or better or appreciated really does a lot. via Lifebit
