Fresh out of the bath and about to get ready for bed, ‘Desperate Housewives‘ star Teri Hatcher recently found herself motivated to snap some photos of her utterly unadorned face and thus lash back at those who have accused her of taking all sorts of measures to preserve her beauty.
The 45-year-old actress also hopes the au naturale photos will help all gals feel better about their not-so-perfect, non-retouched selves: “Women YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.”
“Decided I’d shoot myself in to reveal some truths about ‘beauty’ and hope it makes you all easier on yourself,” Hatcher writes alongside the photo series posted to Facebook. “Love it or hate it, my face that is, no surgery, no implants, no matter what ‘they’ say.”
Sporting in several pics a forehead vein that obviously hasn’t been tamed by any recent application of paralyzing botulinum, she shares, “Did I every toy with fillers or Botox over the years? yes. Tell me does this look Botoxed to you?”
“Julia Roberts had that same vein in her forehead in ‘Eat Pray Love,'” Hatcher points out. “Proud of Julia for being a real woman on a real journey.”
In other photos, she raises her eyebrows and creates forehead creases to prove that, well, she can.
“Hope you learned something,” Hatcher says at the close of the photo series. “You create your own paradise or prison. Being happy inside is all that matters. Find that in whatever way works for you. See something in the mirror you love every day.”
Do you applaud Teri Hatcher’s effort to make a point about “beauty” by thrusting herself into an unflattering light? Does her Facebook photo album and words of advice make this glam “Housewife’ seem more real to you?
