Washington – Actress Rachel Leigh Cook has joined in efforts to take a stand against unhealthy physical appearance expectations put out by media editorial manipulation. As reported by OMG!, the star of films such as “She’s All That” and “Josie and the Pussycats” recently joined The Creative Collection and The Girl Scouts of USA at a summit in Washington regarding the impact unhealthy images of celebrities portrayed in the media has on young women.
Cook is quoted in the report as stating of the issue to FoxNews.com, “I did not grow up getting told about how manipulated the images we see of women and girls out there are, and I think it’s an absolute travesty that young women are seeing what the media is feeding them… It breaks my heart to be part of an industry and part of a machine that really pushes out these images and propagates these really terrible standards that are false.”
