Teri Hatcher of Desperate Housewives fame (and previously of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) has posted nine photos of herself taken right after stepping out of the shower to prove that she is Botox-free. The photos, taken at arms length, show her wrapped in a bath towel with no make-up on. Why did she do it?
Thought about all those damn critics of my face. Love it or hate it, my face that is, no surgery, no implants, no matter what “they” say. Decided I’d shoot myself in to reveal some truths about “beauty” and hope it makes you all easier on yourself.
On another photo, she adds:
I am alone in my bathroom naked in a towel on behalf of women everywhere trying to make a point.
But what is interesting is the advice she gives on posing to look your best:
45 year old me. Just me wanting to teach that all those glam versus trash pictures of celebs are about LIGHTING. It’s not makeup it’s not suregery or botox its LIGHT. Flat front light in you face especially sun setting 4pm light blows out all wrinkles and imperfections. Over head light, sun anything casts shadows under your eye from your brow making you look tired. Shoot all family reunion photos that way over the camera man who should be holding the camera a little higher than your eye line.
You look great, Teri, and we love ya! But those wonderful photos of you on magazine covers and on the set, Botox or none, make-up or none, are the results of heavy post processing. No amount of flat front light can remove wrinkles and make a woman’s face silky smooth. [Is that what your photographer told you, eh?] And, yes, “Women YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.”
