This just goes to show us all that even the prettiest of people still have insecurities about certain parts of their bodies. Take Emma Roberts, for instance. The actress has revealed that she was nervous about her unretouched ad campaign for Aerie because she has pale skin.
She revealed, “I definitely have a complex about being pale because I’ve been made fun of my whole life, so I was nervous about that. When I was a kid, everyone would be like, ‘Your legs are so pale! I can’t believe you’re wearing a dress!’ and I would get so embarrassed. I would get spray tans, and I look back at those photos now, and I just think: Oh my goodness, you’re orange. I would tell my younger self to stop spray tanning so much. Just own it.”
With regard to the new Aerie unretouched ad campaign, Roberts said, “I just loved the messaging behind it. I thought the whole idea was so inspiring. Yes, I’m an actress, but I’m also a real girl. Seeing [Photoshopped] ads, you get kind of bummed. You’re like, ‘Ugh, do these people really look like that?'”
She added, “I feel like whenever girls see the world ‘real’, they automatically think ‘flaw’. I hope that with this campaign they start seeing ‘real’ as beautiful and just who you are, inside and out.”
