In case you have not seen The Good Place, I need to tell you that you’re missing out a lot in life. Firstly because Kristen Bell is in there and secondly because the settings look like my favourite show, Cat in The Hat (I am very cultured you guys).
I am a fan of movies/shows with strong female leads. Like Kate Hudson in Bride Wars,
And Cameron Diaz in The Other Women,
And Angelina Jolie in, well E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G!
And of course, Michelle Obama in that movie The White House and Becoming.
Now, where was I? Yes, The Good Place! I watched because Kristen Bell was on it and that’s how I discovered Jameela Jamil.
Focus! Okay, so Jameela is also a strong advocate for positive body image and a fierce feminist. She’s very vocal about brands and media picking on our insecurities to sell us shizz we don’t need. Women on magazine covers are airbrushed to get rid of wrinkles and imperfections while male covers get praised for their wrinkles, noting their experience and maturity.
She even called out top guns celebrities like Kim Kardashian for promoting some lollipops that suppress appetite. I mean if that is not badass, you must be from prison or something.
She’s got a wicked sense of humor as well so do watch this video and if you have the time, watch The Good Place.
