OK, if you were to encounter a good-looking, 6’1” actor who’s strutting down the red carpet all spiffy and has colleagues like Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer on his resume, would you not think he’s a little intimidating?
30-year-old Aldis Hodge understands why. In fact, he gets that a lot. Turns out, women aren’t the only ones out here being judged at first glance. The Hidden Figures star took the #WeAreMore challenge on the red carpet, revealing that people who first see him automatically write him off as conceited, unapproachable, or even awkward.
Turns out, he was one of the nicest dudes I’ve met on the carpet.
I’ve embarked on this journey of #WeAreMore to prove that women, such as myself, are tired of the pressures of achieving unattainable perfection, especially on social media. But hearing Aldis open up about how he’s judged as well totally opened my eyes. Famous or not, male or female, we all have a voice that’s striving to be heard.
Join me, Aldis, and more celebs by showing your worth. Post your photo with a word that describes who you truly are using #WeAreMore, tag @strippingdowncelebs, share, and be heard.
