I believe that the only way to widen people's notions about beauty is to change the way media portrays beauty. People do want a certain amount of illusion in films and television because they already experience real life every day. Audiences want celebrities to be beautiful, but not so perfect that they seem unattainable. We should not denounce all traditional forms of beauty and deny that celebrities are beautiful. The only way to broaden people's perspectives is to show them that there is not only one type of beauty. If media were better able to represent a larger population of beauty types, there would be less insecurity about appearance in our society. Beauty should also not be the only factor in determining a person's worth as a celebrity or a regular person so that people can stop basing all their hopes of happiness on the way they look or do not look.
