Olivia Munn: the Oscar discussion I don’t want to have
I don’t want to talk about this. But where Olivia Munn is concerned, everyone is talking about this. SHE is talking about this. About her face. And why it looks different. Apparently people started commenting about her looking different and then she went on Instagram and listed four reasons why she’s looking different. And now no one believes what she says about why she’s looking different.
Ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you I love research. Convinced that there's got to be natural, healthy ways (ie not only the rich and connected can do it) to keep your skin from aging, I do lots of research. Who says guys are the only ones who can get better with age? We're gonna turn that myth around if we share what we learn with each other. So here are 4 skin tips I've learned just over this past year that really helped the texture and shape of my face. Left Pic: 1 year ago. Right Pic: Last month. 1. I lost 12 pounds this past year while training for Xmen. I kept it off by coming up w/an hour workout I do a few times a week. The weight loss leaned out my cheeks and jawline. Working out is also great for your skin because it increases blood flow to your face which helps rejuvenate. 2. Reshaped my brows. I do my own brows and always thought they were supposed to have a high arch. Then a facialist pointed out to me that I was shaping my brows into a frown. So I let the top of my brows grow in (which is never fun because it looks spotty for a few weeks) and then I plucked the bottom. That gave my brows a more horizontal angle and instantly brightened my eyes. 3. Got rid of sunspots. I love my freckles. But over the past couple of years I've seen more come up and merge with other freckles to make large dark spots. Dark spots prevent your skin from reflecting light and gives you a dull complexion. So for the past year I've been diligently using @Proactiv Mark Fading Pads. I wipe my face with one every night and now my face has a more even tone and the large spots aren't as noticeable. 4. I've talked about this before and I still stand by it: Japanese potatoes that are high in Hyaluronic Acid help keep wrinkles away. Look up this video: "Connie Chung Yuzihara" to learn all about it. There are Hyaluronic Acid pills and vitamins but I think that the best way to get it in your system is by eating them in foods that naturally have them. I'm still looking into what gets rid of the lines that develop around your neck. I think it has to do with tension and acupuncture might be the answer. When I find out more, I'll let you know. 👯👍
I’ve mentioned several times how much I love Olivia’s face. Like if I had a face goal, she’d be it. To be honest, I hadn’t actually noticed that her face had changed. Since she pointed out that her sunspots have been reduced though, yeah, sure, I can see that. And I can see too that her cheeks are hollowed out but I’ve also noticed, as she points out, that she’s lost weight. Almost 15 lbs of weight.
The fact that Olivia Munn “had” to lose 15 lbs of weight is depressing to me. F-ck. Can we talk about that instead? Because it wasn’t like she was “average” size before. No? You want to keep analysing her face? Fine.
The Japanese potatoes. OK. I can get with that too. Because I still can’t see where the major super jarring changes are that can’t be explained by the explanations she’s offered. And to some of you that means I’m soft. I guess I’ll have to be soft then? I’m sorry, I can’t identify where she might have injected some sh-t or stitched up some sh-t or pulled some sh-t. What I’m more interested in is why she had to puke out all this information in such detail.
It’s not the eyebrows or the skin or the cheekbones or whatever that’s tipping me off about what she may or may not be doing or will do, but it’s the amount of energy she’s spending into it, you know? And it’s probably no less than the amount of energy they ALL spend into it. This is part of their job. Like their careers depend on it. Their careers are often IMPROVED for it.
Is it better that she’s being so forthcoming about the effort involved to stay in the business or is it worse that she’s sharing all of this because it perpetuates something that’s more sinister than we want to acknowledge?
Also attaching shots of Olivia at the Vanity Fair party. I will say that her expression in these VF shots is about as thirsty as I’ve ever seen from her. Olivia’s supposed to break out with X-Men: Apocalypse. And the Oscar invitation, in addition to the Vanity Fair appearance, and all that’s expected in the new few months, maybe THAT’s what you’re seeing in her face.
