People's "Skewed Perception Of Aging" When It Comes To Women, According To A News Outlet's Tweet That Hilary Duff "Still" Looks "Great" At 35
"God forbid a lady is not a child anymore and wears a bikini, even if George Clooney is 61 and no one creates such stupid headlines about the association of his looks and age."
After a news outlet appeared shocked to find that Hilary Duff "still" looked good at 35, fans have defended her.
When Lizzie McGuire, a popular Disney series, debuted in 2001, Hilary was just 14 years old. After appearing in a number of big-budget films, including Cheaper By the Dozen and A Cinderella Story, she launched her own clothing brand and had a successful music career.
A few decades later, Hilary is 35 and prospering as a mother of three.
Fans were shocked when Hilary appeared bare-chested on the cover of Women's Health earlier this year. She admitted to being "proud" of her body throughout the years in a talk with the journal as she promoted body positivity and acceptance.
"My body makes me proud. I'm pleased that it has resulted in three offspring for me. I've reached a point where I can accept the alterations my body has undergone in peace. I also want people to know that someone had me in the most attractive position and had applied glow all over my body, she added.
However, a few internet users this week appeared to be astonished by the fact that Hilary looks fantastic.
On December 6, the news source @DailyLoud tweeted, "Hillary Duff still looks fantastic at age 35," along with two images of the actress posing in swimsuit on the cover of Women's Health Australia. The message has now gone viral.
Fans instantly expressed their displeasure with the post's wording, alleging that it implied that women "expire" by the age of 30.
One user commented, "I'm mildly depressed that people are talking about Hilary Duff still being hot at 35." We continue to live after we are 30.
Another person questioned, "Why are we still acting like everybody goes from young to dead the minute you turn 30? Why are they acting like women shrivel up and turn to dust once they reach the age of 30? someone else echoed.
The wider "skewed perception of aging" that many people appear to have was then discussed by fans, who noted how much "social worth and emphasis is placed upon age."
"just about when I saw a post about how Hilary Duff, 35, is still in terrific shape." Are people alright? Because of crap like this, the younger generation has such a distorted view of aging. No of your age, you always look beautiful, according to one commenter.
"I find it extremely pernicious how much societal importance and emphasis is placed upon age after seeing the 'Hilary Duff at 35' images. Unfortunately, it's a catch-all; no matter how affluent, powerful, or well-liked someone is, they will all eventually age, thus this custom really applies to everyone.
People soon began drawing attention to other examples of ageism toward women in the profession. For instance, Anne Hathaway frequently encounters comparable "surprise" responses to the fact that she still looks fantastic at 40.
"Okay, all the tweets that expressed disbelief that Anne Hathaway was still looking young at age 40 were annoying enough, but this one might serve as my villain origin narrative since I'm the same age as Hillary Duff, hahaha. She appears to be a typical 35-year-old! 35 still seems young! One user tweeted, "You're in the prime of your life.
Hilary Duff is actually 35 years old, yet she's still in terrific shape. Another person remarked, "Anne Hathaway hasn't aged at all!!! She's literally 40." "You guys genuinely despise women."
Others responded by pointing out that male celebrities like George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio frequently don't receive the same shocked response to their ages.
Someone said, "God forbid a woman is not a child anymore and wears a bikini, but no one makes such foolish claims about the association of his attractiveness and age, and George Clooney is 61.
