Transcript for How to talk to your partner about plastic surgery
That's the number one thing. Absolutely. I saw an article on the website mail magazine that made me laugh and I'll tell you about that in a second, but it asked the question for the modern age. What do you say when your partner wants plastic surgery? That wasn't giggle-inducing, Michael. The article is written by a man who struggles with just how to respond when his 27-year-old girlfriend told him she was considering getting Botox. A mix of skepticism and downright fear are common reactions for most men who fear that the procedure is not safe and will make significant others -- their significant others' faces look ridiculous or unnatural. Botox is a $2.5 billion industry. Big business. And it's becoming more common in 20 to 29-year-olds. So this is something men are having to come to terms with. I laughed a little and I was, like, why are we worried about how comfortable men are? We're not addressing the core, which is why do women feel the need to do this in the first place? First of all, I have a funny story about max. Your husband. I'm not throwing him under the bus. I usually don't like to name him when telling these type of stories, max shiffrin, my husband, but we were having a drink after having a baby and I was talking about how crazy pregnancy and my mom had four kids, and I didn't know how much my body changed, just after one, and I was communicating the insecurities. He was, like, if you ever want to get your boobs done, I'm okay with it. That wasn't where I was going with that. When you preface it by saying I'm not trying to throw him under the bus, you not only threw him under, but you beep beeped and backed up over him. I don't think we should be ashamed people find out what we say. We should be ashamed we said it. But he was -- it ended up being a light hearted conversation about the insecurities of people and their bodies and I just find this topic -- But I think it goes beyond -- beyond -- it's more of an internal thing than external I feel. Yes. Because we live in a society of being, like, perfect, and I don't think reality TV is necessarily helpful when it comes to the 20 to 29-year-olds because if you see someone one year and they look normal, and the next year, their badonkadonk it's bigger and their nose is different and their cheekbones and they look like something out of a magazine all the time when they have makeup artists and surgeons and that's not normal. That's not how people look. That's just not how people look. I think we give this unrealistic image, body image, and I think if there is something -- if there is something that you have to look at, your nose every day and it -- And it bothers you or something, yeah. Do it for you. Don't do it for anybody else, and yeah. Do it for you. But the anti-aging stuff is inevitable and fighting age seems to hit women harder and I just think that we're in a time where rather than just keep fixing it, we need to, like, make aging badass again. It's a sign of wisdom and there were cultures that revere elderly people and they used to be wise buddhas of life and now we forget them. I say, own our age and quit trying to fix things that are happening at the same rate for everyone. You know what? That's a very good point, and with that comment, the second we're done, I'm canceling my Botox appointment. I have never had it. I have never had it. Is that why you look so smooth? Black don't crack, girl. ??? It is what it is, yeah ???
