In a recent Instagram post, Curtis spoke about how focusing on her looks took a toll on her. “I’ve been sucking my stomach in since I was 11, when you start being conscious of boys and bodies, and the jeans are super tight,” she wrote. “I very specifically decided to relinquish and release every muscle I had that I used to clench to hide the reality. That was my goal. I have never felt more free creatively and physically.” She is determined to live her life to the fullest. “I have no effing time to waste. My motto is, ‘If not now, when? And, if not me, who?’ And, that has unleashed me and freed me, and allowed me to do everything I’m doing with zero attachment.”

It is a conversation that is cutting across the entertainment and fashion industry. Recently, Paulina Porizkova, who’s been in the modeling industry for a long time spoke about ageism in her profession. “I always felt like being a model was literally being an apple in a still life. You just kind of get polished, placed, be quiet, look pretty…it was a little frustrating to me,” she said, reported Vanity Fair. She has seen the modeling industry grow for the better through the years. “I love the movement of body inclusivity and color inclusivity and celebrating different beauty as beautiful,” she said. “I’m so behind that!”

Porizkova believes there’s still a long way for the industry to go, especially when it comes to ageism. “I felt ashamed to be aging, and then on the other hand you go, ‘But, I’m smarter, I’m better, I’m funnier, I’m more patient!'” she said. “Overall as a person, I’m the best I’ve ever been. So I’m not ready to be dismissed.” The model concluded, “You don’t get to dismiss me because I have some wrinkles and sags and gray hair now, when I’m kind of fabulous.”
