“Euphoria” Star Barbie Ferreira HATES Being Celebrated for Her Curves, Here’s Why
Model and actress Barbie Ferreira is causing a real stir among her fans with her radical revelations. This curvy woman has openly expressed her thoughts on the body positivity trend and many people agree with her. Her recent opinion has gotten many netizens talking, and here’s what she has to say about this modern tendency.
Barbie has her own attitude toward body positivity.
Model and actress, Barbie Ferreira is disappointed with the current talks around bodies and size.
Just like her character in Euphoria, Barbie puts the very point of the body positivity movement under scrutiny. She has doubts about whether it’s even possible to achieve true happiness with your body. It’s very much similar to what her character Kat experiences in Euphoria, when she has a meltdown about all the societal pressure to love your body.
In her interview, Barbie speaks openly about the problem of self-love, saying, “I hope other people can also feel the same way and release the pressure of being perfect and happy all the time. Because that just doesn’t exist.”
And Ferreira, who used to model before joining the show, thinks the massive acceptance of curvy bodies that started with her debut in the industry has since reverted back.
The curvy actress can’t stand being celebrated for what she wears.
“I think bigger bodies are not as ’trendy’ as they used to be, which is really sad to me. But it’s more of a conversation of the fact that we all struggle with self-love, and I don’t think any young person has really figured it out yet,” said Barbie in her interview.
The actress frowns upon people applauding her for wearing clothes that are meant for thinner bodies. They think that by doing so, Barbie is supporting the body positivity movement.
“It’s not radical for me to be wearing a crop top,” she says. “Comments like those are just backhanded compliments. I’ve been doing this since I was 16.”
The actress also finds that there’s a lot of pressure for her to love her body because of her size. “It’s so funny that people just assume that,” she says. “What — did I say that? I never said that. You guys just say that. You posted that on me.”
The actress has a good solution for the problem.
What Barbie thinks could help more people love their bodies, is if clothing producers were more size-inclusive. “I have all the resources in the world to get something that fits, and it’s still extremely difficult,” she said. “So I feel for everyone who’s still trying to find things that fit them.”
“I could do a seminar on this,” she adds. “I always think about the fact that if these clothes came in my size, I would be out here doing even more.”
