Shannen Doherty is “done” with Hollywood’s unattainable beauty standards. The former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star said as much on Sunday when she took to Instagram to share a makeup-free selfie complete with no filter.
“Watching movies tonight and noticed there were few female characters I could relate to,” Doherty, 50, began. “You know, women without fillers, without Botox, without a facelift. Women who embraced their face and all the experience it showed.”
She continued: “I have lived. I love that I’ve lived and that my face reflects my life. I survived a lot yes cancer but more than that. I embrace me now. Finally. Done with the perception magazines and Hollywood try to make us in to.” “I want to see women like me. Women like us,” Doherty concluded.
Doherty’s post was met with praise from her fans and famous pals alike. “Thank you. We need more of you,” model Paulina Porizkova commented. Doherty’s former “90210” co-star Jennie Garth left a fire emoji while actress Sarah Michelle Gellar added applauding emojis.
Selma Blair said: “Just thinking [it was] time I fixed my face. Hahahah. I got the same adult face as you … Love you beautiful.”
