Sophie Tweed-Simmons, the daughter of KISS frontman Gene Simmons, embraced her natural beauty during recent a photo shoot to teach a valuable lesson to young girls.
The 22-year-old aspiring actress posed for Galore Magazine in her underwear, removing make-up and photoshop from the equation.
“I think we send out a lot of lies to young girls,” she said. Tweed-Simmons went on to say:
Models even admit to not looking like their photos. There is already so much you can do to alter your appearance, make-up, extensions, spanks-all the things we think make us look attractive. Here is my stance on it: make-up, hair and clothing, and your body should be a reflection of who you are on the inside, not who you are trying to emulate.
“My whole family is tall and slim, and ALL the girls are 6-foot-plus and blonde,” Tweed-Simmons explained. “I’m 5-foot-9 and brunette with, let’s say, a curvier body, and it wasn’t always in the right places. I felt pressure to not only look like the celebrities I love but to fit into my family. I struggle with weight constantly, but I found a place where my body is healthy, and I’m happy with that.”
Her father, who is notoriously in the press discussing immigration and controversial political issues, reportedly possesses a strong work ethic which influences her to be nothing short of an “overachiever.”
“He does not tolerate laziness, and I’m thankful for that,” she claimed. “There are no vacations, or days off. We work Monday through Sunday, and I will always answer my phone.”
So what does Tweed-Simmons have in store for her future?
“Ultimately I want to help people with my charity and my book. But my passion is acting so, it would be nice to do both. As for being a ‘celeb’ or ‘famous’ I don’t need that,” she revealed to Galore.
