I want to address the idea that American TV and movies (almost always) use beautiful, 'perfect', skinny female actresses. I, along with a large proportion of girls/young women today i should think, always compare myself to these women and wish that i had the physical features they do. I feel it definately is an American thing, if you compare Skins (uk) to 90210 (us), you can clearly see the difference between the 'normal' girls and the 'idealistic' ones. I'm not sure how i can address this issue in terms of graphic media or without creating something pointless. I want to really say something, create something personal to me and have a sense of emotion to attached to it because it's a big deal to me and something that i think about on a daily basis. I don't want it to end up as some wierd form of therapy either but i'd like to take the opportunity to approach this is brief in a personal way. So, in short, i'd like to approach the idea of televised/commercial beauty that is so influencial in American culture and show the negative effects on it's audience.
