Anna Paquin Blasts Fashion Pressure
Nudity embracer Anna Paquin “feels bad” for women who don’t dress for their body shape.
The True Blood actress thinks that there is too much pressure on girls to wear fashionable clothes, meaning many resort to donning items which don’t suit them.
“I feel so bad for women who beat themselves up trying to wear clothes that aren’t really cut for bodies. Some women have those very straight, narrow boy bodies, but most of us don’t. Fashion should be about finding clothes that look right on your body. I want to say, ‘You know what? It’s not you. There’s nothing wrong with your body. This just wasn’t cut with a body in mind, at least not a real woman’s body.’”
Anna, 27, underwent a dramatic makeover for her role in the vampire series. She dyed her hair blonde, covered herself in fake tan and increased the amount of exercise she does as her character, Sookie Stackhouse, is often found in skimpy outfits.
She explained to British Elle, “I could write a guide-book to spray-tanning! I have a lady who comes to my house to spray me once a week. My job involves small outfits and being naked all the time, so I tend to exercise more now! But the costume designers were amazing—so loving in the way they took all our clothes away from us.”
