One wonders if Ms. Diaz, who is often touted as some sort of icon of attractiveness (and who is famously unprepossessing without makeup) sometimes compares her modest charm with the unbridled allure of curvaceous screen sirens from earlier days, such as Anita Ekberg and Kim Novak, and realizes that she simply does not measure up. Anita Ekberg, incidentally, always confessed (both on-screen, and off) to having a thoroughgoing addiction to Italian cuisine . . .
Ms. Diazís statement recalls the sentiments of Angelina Jolie, was quoted in Vogue magazine as saying that she always considered herself too "angular" (her word) to be truly sexy.
How fascinating that even the waif icons themselves are acknowledging the absence of womanly beauty in the modern media--and using themselves as examples. But with a rising generation of goddesses such as Christina Schmidt, Erika Christensen, and perhaps Raven-Symone waiting in the wings, Hollywood will undoubtedly be compelled to bring Classically-proportioned seductresses back to the silver screen.
