"I was young. It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that. [Someone brought it up recently] They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get. I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet’, I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself.”
Take a look around you.
The world is still in motion.
There’s no way for us to rewind things.
There’s no way for us to slow things down.
All that’s left for us is to just keep moving forward.
But don’t forget that it’s okay to pause.
Pause and take look around you.
Pause and embrace your aging parents.
Pause and watch your siblings grow.
Pause and laugh amongst your friends.
Pause and cry until you can move again.
Pause and take it all in.
