‘Women programmed to dislike themselves’
Actor Kate Hudson thinks women are “programmed” to believe they are not good enough because they are constantly being “scrutinised”.
The 36-year-old actor said girls should be not be scrutinised as beauty is “subjective”, reported Female First.
“I think women are programmed to not feel that great about ourselves. Our bodies are constantly telling us that we’re not good enough. And I think that’s because we’re so highly scrutinised - our image, our beauty or the idea of beauty - whatever that is because I believe it’s subjective,” she said.
The Bride Wars star insists it is important for women to “support” each other, which is something she has learned from her mother Goldie Hawn.
“We need to stop scrutinising each other and start supporting that we’re all on this trajectory together of youth into womanhood into getting older and what’s really going to shine and feel healthy and live longer is feeling good about ourselves.
“I got that from my mom because she’s always been that way, so I want to encourage girls to feel good about themselves, no matter what their sizes are, and to feel motivated to be healthy and strong,” the actor said.
