Maria Bello is the queen of posting raw, real photos on Instagram. How many other celebs/people/living specimens can say the same? Take a look at her page. She’s often makeup-free, and thus, flaw-free. In a world that can’t get enough sexy selfies, duck face, boob and butt pics, Maria’s take-me-or-leave-me attitude is a rarity, and a beautiful one at that. I’m over constantly feeling the pressure to amount to a perfect Instagram model. Maria is right there with me.
“We’re more than lips and cheeks and butts,” she says.
Such attributes may allow women to feel empowered. But our brains, spirit, and reality of who we are and what we can offer to the world is more empowering, in my opinion. I explain the #WeAreMore challenge to the Hollywood vet (Hi, Goliath, Coyote Ugly, and everything in between), and she immediately responds. Turns out, there’s even more to her than her stripped-down social media photos.
Join me, Maria, and more celebs by showing your worth and posting your photo with a word that describes who you truly are using #WeAreMore, tag @strippingdowncelebs, share, and be heard.
