Today’s blind item is a fresh one from Rajeev Masand. We think we have figured out who it is about based on one picture! We think you will agree once you read it and see the picture for reference. The thing is, we don’t know how this works because we don’t believe in these procedures. Is it once they get it, they have to keep updating it? Because everyone, who did it, keeps on doing it. Do they not see how they are making themselves worst? Or are they too drown in their own money that they think they need it to keep up? All these questions and only they can give the answers. Well, maybe KJo can. Check it out below. By the way, the picture below is apt for this blind item.
Live and Let Live
The tabloids, and those pesky paparazzi sites in particular, have not been kind to this star wife whose appearance at a public event recently was minutely dissected. Self-styled experts and opinion makers noted that the elegant lady in question looked ‘puffy’. Some have suggested that “she’s had work done recently” and hence the “startling new look”. Others said she “looked a lot like” a has-been actress who made her debut opposite her husband.
This insensitive commentary is not unlike the intense scrutiny that Hollywood star Renee Zellweger was subjected to in 2014 when she made a rare public appearance after many years away from the spotlight. The actress famously wrote an op-ed for The Huffington Post slamming a section of the media for its obsession with what they described as her ‘transformation’, and for pretty much insisting that she’d had cosmetic surgery.
Three years ago, an American film critic faced a fitting backlash after he callously went after actress Melissa McCarthy in a review of her then new film Identity Thief. The New York Observer’s Rex Reed called McCarthy ‘tractor-sized’, a ‘screeching, humongous creep’, and a ‘female hippo’.
Incidents like these—including the one involving the Bollywood actor’s wife—are a reminder of deep- rooted prejudices against women over 40 who choose to conduct their lives in the public eye. The media’s harsh judgment of their appearance is reflective of blatant hypocrisy at play. When was the last time the press went after one of our 40-plus male stars? Shame.
