Facing the Future

I just tweeted less than 5 minutes ago on the topic of Rene Zellweger’s new found face. I figure that since most people on social media are so hyped up about her looks, I might as well join the bandwagon and comment on how ‘different’ Miss Zellweger has become. Apparently, she akin her new face to a healthier and happier lifestyle which is pretty ironic because from my highly judgmental point of view, she looks nowhere near to being healthy. Her hair is just way too limp and needs some major highlights (or a cut), her eyebrows are kinda bushy and don’t even get me started on those wrinkles around her eyes. It is pretty dubious to claim that no plastic surgery was involved, especially when the changes are so obvious even I, possibly the only person in New Zealand who have not watched Bridget Jones, noticed when she made headline news on tv.
Then again, maybe the ability to drastically change ones face is already a common trend except that now, we are dealing with a famous Hollywood star and Rene gets noticed. How many of you heard about the Chinese man who divorced his beautiful wife when the children she bore him were so hideous and looked nothing like both parents? Found out later that the Mrs had gone for a major plastic surgery and duped him into marriage. So if a lay-person can afford a major re-shuffling of the face that God gave them, why is Rene getting so much flack? Is it because she is a public persona and hence the public feels like she owes us an explanation for changing a part of her that we feel we have ownership?
We humans are such a strange lot aren’t we? We care but then again, we really don’t care. We allow freedom but then again, freedom comes with a price which value we set. We give but we also expect in return.
Honestly dogs are better. All they ever want is a pat on the head and food in their bowl. Could not care less about how her owner looks. Diva dog loves everyone and everything. C’mon Chloe!!
