The 8 most powerful celebrity op-eds
The celebrities have spoken and their views are strong…
From Jennifer Aniston to Taylor Swift, celebrities these days are out to give us more than just sound bites – they’re writing opinion-strong essays that really pack a punch. From questioning the motives of the media, to challenging body ideals, these are the most powerful celebrity op-eds to read online this lunchtime…
Who: Lady Gaga
Where: TheBorn This Way Foundationwebsite
Why: Lady Gaga recently revealed that she suffers with PTSD after being raped when she was 19. She described the challenges she faces on a daily basis because of the condition, and also encouraged others to open up about their own mental health struggles.
Best point: ‘I am a strong and powerful woman who is aware of the love I have around me from my team, my family and friends, my doctors and from my incredible fans who I know will never give up on me. I will never give up on my dreams of art and music. I am continuing to learn how to transcend this because I know I can. If you relate to what I am sharing, please know that you can too.
Who: Mila Kunis
Where: Ashton Kutcher’s A Plus, 2019
Why: Mila penned an op-ed against sexism in Hollywood, after an incident where she refused to pose half naked on the cover of a men’s magazine to promote one of her films. As a result, the unnamed producer threatened her and told her she would ‘never work in this town again.’
Best point: ‘I was no longer willing to subject myself to a naïve compromise that I had previously been willing to. “I will never work in this town again?” I was livid, I felt objectified, and for the first time in my career I said “no.” And guess what? The world didn’t end. The film made a lot of money and I did work in this town again, and again, and again. What this producer may never realize is that he spoke aloud the exact fear every woman feels when confronted with gender bias in the workplace.
