I think it's says a lot about our society that a women who is considered so beautiful can have such major hang-ups about her appearance. I know no one's perfect, but I think we try to obtain such unrealistic ideals that even those that are CLOSE to perfect feel inadequate.
I guess some people would feel comforted by the fact that even Tyra Banks, as gorgeous and successful as she is, still has her insecurities. I actually find it v. upsetting. I mean, if a former supermodel's not "good enough", how can I ever be?
Oh, and I personally doubt Brad Pitt or George Clooney or Denzel Washington (to name a few) ever worry about crows feet or bad hair days, b/c for whatever reason the standards for male beauty seem to be much more realistic...
Sorry to run away w/ the post... just wanted to share...
