Opening up to Yahoo, the pressure felt by Halle Berry in Hollywood seeing everyone doing it.
Halle said “It is pressure,” “When you see everybody around you doing it, you have those moments when you think, ‘To stay alive in this business, do I need to do the same thing?”
She encourages her fellow women to look within themselves for their beauty while they are aging. “We have to stop wanting to look like that decade before,” she said.
She further lamented, “’you know if you just did a little bit of this and that, lift this up, then this would be a little bit better.’ It’s almost like crack that people are trying to push on you. That’s what I feel like.”
After the pressure can be too much, she’s not giving in to it. She’s focusing on what’s best for her than the desires of critics in the industry.
“I just have kept reminding myself that beauty really is as beauty does, and it is not so much about my physical self,” Berry said.
She added, “aging is natural, and that’s going to happen to all of us. I think of those women that I thought aged so beautifully, like Lena Horn.”
