It’s a serious event when Victoria Beckham is caught smiling. After all, this is a woman whose entire career has been spent in a state of scowling disapproval. I definitely don’t subscribe to the idea that women always need to be grinning ear to ear (I hate when random dudes – and this has happened on several occasion – stop me on the street and tell me to smile. Like, what? Fuck off!) in order to convince the world that they’re happy, but Victoria sometimes looks downright miserable.
In any case, she’s now opened up on the issue and called it like it is, saying pretty much that it looks stupid as hell to just walk around with a blank smile on your face 24/7. From The New York Times:
“I smile in family pictures. When you’re in a position to be paparazzi-ed just walking down the street, you’d look a little daft if you were smiling all the time.”
Fair enough! Kristen Stewart gets a lot of shit for this, as well, and I actually like that she’s such a misanthrope. Do your thing, girl.
