CW actress AnnaLynne McCord made a bold move that few actresses in Hollywood would dare to do. She posted a Twitter picture of herself without makeup. No, this is not the sort of no makeup photo made perfect with lighting and Photoshop. McCord snapped herself in an au naturel state - blemishes and all.
I woke up this morning and decided I'm over Hollywood's perfection requirement. To all my girls (and boys) who have ever been embarrassed by their skin! I salute you! I'm not perfect--and that's okay with me! the 24-year-old tweeted to her 137,000 followers.
AnnaLynne McCord's Twitter pic shows her bright blue eyes, curly brown hair and even the blemishes on her skin. Without makeup, the young actress looks beautiful but real.
Mustering the confidence to tweet such a photo is certainly admirable and she received an outpouring of support from fans on Twitter who wanted to commend her post.
You glow girl! @IAMannalynnemcc went makeup-free on Twitter today. What do you think of her fresh-faced pic? tweeted Us Weekly magazine.
I've always adored Annalynne McCord :) makes me so happy seeing her do that, tweeted user @cassiefearless.
LOVE THIS. I think she is absolutely stunning, so happy she did this, posted Twitter user Karis.
The 90210 actress has opened up about her perception of beauty and how she hopes to be a role model for others.
Over the New Year, my sister and I were thinking, what do we want to see in our lives, surrounding us? she told Us Weekly. Be the change you want to see in the world, be the change you want to see in people and for me, I kind of want Hollywood and fashion to make a change. I think it's a little risque and I'd love to see class make a comeback.
McCord has been photographed by the paparazzi without makeup in the past, walking through the airport or holding hands with actor boyfriend Dominic Purcell.
In contrast to a celebrity like Kim Kardashian, who is seen in bed with a full face a makeup on her E! channel reality shows, AnnaLynne McCord has an atypical mindset for a young actress in Hollywood.
