    Default Juliette Binoche criticises youth-obsessed US



    French actress Juliette Binoche has slammed the US for its obsession with "youth and big breasts".

    The 44-year-old said older women are considered beautiful in her home country and do not feel under pressure to go under the knife to maintain their looks.

    She is quoted as saying: "Personally I've always thought French women bloom at 40 and for me it's completely true. In France, beauty is much more subtle - and there is a greater acceptance of age.

    "Whereas in America, they think youth and big breasts define beauty. We think it's more about looking after yourself than going down the artificial route."

    She added that cosmetic surgery reveals women's desperation to cling to their youth, saying: "Botox makes people look older. You look at women who have had it, you see the fear of ageing on their face."

    You forget my chile, wearing skimpy clothing and "sexifying" yourself is the new black for the 40 plus celebuturd set (hell, 30 something too). Act yo damned age, practice what you preach! She's just one of those bitter women who don't get too many roles, though she seems to pop up in movies once in a while when they need that French woman role.

    Our youth obsession has more to do with media obsession, if you ask me. 90% of the people in media are immature, bratty frat boys who shove their ideal of womanhood down our throats. I mean really, how many people actually hate Heidi Montag and others like her as opposed to being a fan? The ratio is pretty high, I bet.

    Having said that, American women do buy into the media created stereotypes, it's just a fact. French women do age more gracefully, and that is a fact as well. Look at Jessica Lange, a beautiful woman who could not possibly have looked that bad, yet she has ruined herself with PS.

    That's what I always thought, it was so creepy to watch the film because I kept thinking she looked like an older relative...

    Plus there are also the Gay-posing-as-straight producers (Ryan Seacrest anyone?) who actually finance the films/tv productions who wish to appeal to the lowest common denominator and go for the easy & quick win.

    Female beauty can be a subtle thing, and I think that a lot of (non-media influencing) people realise this.

    on a side note:- didn't she go out with Patrick Muldoon for a number of years? (or have I confused her with someone else?)
