A leading lady and celebrity Mom came clean on The Oprah Winfrey Show Thursday (Sept. 30) about the difficulty of aging in Hollywood, washing off her makeup and opening her heart.
Actress Teri Hatcher highlighted Winfrey’s show, which revealed the insecurities and physical struggles of the star. The actress reveals she’s had to deal with the intense social pressure to stay youthful and flawless, which she’s decided she’s past obsessing over anymore.
When Teri Hatcher posted bare-faced and sopping wet-haired photos straight out of the shower on her Facebook page just weeks ago, a public frenzy ensued over the star’s willingness to reveal her self-described undereye circles, uneven skin tone and clearly non-Botoxed brow furrows. “I don’t want to stop taking glamorous pictures — they’re fun — but I just want people to know the truth,” Hatcher told Oprah. “I think if we can accept the truth and reveal the mystery, we can enjoy both things.”
The 45 year-old actress did admit to receiving Botox injections a couple years after daughter Emerson Rose was born in 1997 because she looked ‘so tired,’ though the former Superman star says she hasn’t had injections since.
Hatcher took a flip cam along on her morning routine so viewers could see her transformation from disheveled and crinkled-looking woman who woke up at 5:23am, to a near-flawless Desperate Housewives star only a couple hours later. Squinting straight into the camera before makeup was about to commence, the star joked, “Can you say sh-t on ‘Oprah’? Because that’s what I look like!”
The day ended with Hatcher’s long late night bath ritual, where she took off her makeup in front of the camera after a long day’s work in order to show other women that she looks just like them when they do the same. “I’m willing to be naked in the bath tub on behalf of women feeling good about themselves,” said Hatcher, which brought cheers from the Oprah audience.
