When Hollywood stars go charity shopping

“Everything I’m wearing is my mum’s – I get “new” clothes from other people’s hand-me-downs….I can find anything I ever want in thrift shops.”

“Daryl has a compost loo, her cars run on leftover grease from fast-food restaurants and she lives ‘off the grid’, with her own sources of water and power.” (Daryl Hannah in The Daily Mail)

Det ligger i tidsånden at være besat af materielle goder, at skrabe til sig og bruge for at smide væk. Derfor er der ikke noget mere forfriskende end når Hollywoodstjerner går imod strømmen og vender ryggen til luksusbiler, overforbrug og giga-garderober.

En af de positive rollemodeller er Daryl Hannah, og for nylig læste jeg en udmærket artikel i ellers ikke altid så lødige Daily Mail om hvordan hun aldrig køber nyt tøj, skyer plastickirurgi, bor på en gård så langt væk fra Hollywoods glitter og minglen som muligt og i øvrigt kæmper indædt for miljøet. Hendes anderledes holdninger har helt sikkert betydet, at hun får tilbudt knap så mange glamourøse filmroller, men jeg er sikker på at hun sover godt om natten.

Meget inspirerende.

Læs interviewet i The Daily Mail.

In today’s society we’re obsessed with material possessions. The fashion industry and its ever-changing trends make sure that no matter how much money we spend, we never feel on top of the latest “it” items and must-haves. And Hollywood and the media are obsessed with youth, weight loss and wrinkle-free faces.

Therefore I find it so inspiring when Hollywood’s so-called role models such as actors dare to be different. One of them is Daryl Hannah and I recently read an interview with her in The Daily Mail (yes, I know it’s one of my guilty pleasures) about how she lives on a secluded eco-farm far away from Hollywood’s glitter, fights for the environment, never buys new clothes and denies having had plastic-surgery (I really hope she is honest about that).

She probably doesn’t get offered as many movie roles because of all this (well, she’s a woman over 40 so that already rules her out) but I’m sure she sleeps well at night.

Very inspiring.
