Congrats, Kim Cattrall. The sexy Sex and the City star has been named as one of Olay's newest beauty ambassadors.
And at age 54, we think that's a wonderful compliment and gig for the actress.
kim will become a spokesperson for Total Effects Anti-Aging Body Wash and Lotion, which claims to 'improve elasticity in 1 week, younger-looking, radiant skin in 1 month.'
Representatives for Procter & Gamble say TV commercials featuring Kim will launch here on February 28th, with magazine ads appearing in April.
Some catty websites have already fired off the jealousy missiles, claiming that SATC's Samantha Jones has been heavily airbrushed. However, P&G claims there was only a minimal amount of photoshopping done:
"In accordance with our own strict guidelines, only very minimal retouching was done on the photos of Kim," a spokesperson for Proctor & Gamble tells the curious British press.
"They capture her natural youthfulness and radiance and that’s exactly what makes her a great ambassador for the brand’s new Body Wash.
The way we see it, re-touching is done on just about every person featured in print and television ads. It's the nature of the business, and even the young and beautiful have been photoshopped.
Remember Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher, telling Oprah that it is great lighting on television and the fine work of a professional hair and makeup team that makes actresses look youthful and gorgeous with smooth, flawless skin. It's not reality, but the modeling and acting worlds present a fantasy, and the public buys into it.
Take a look at the photos here of lovely Kim Cattrall. The top photo is a still from her Olay Total Effects ad. And the other photo shows the actress just last week in Manhattan. Yes, Kim looks older in the NYC photo. So what?!
Meow! Meow! People just love to hate. Meanwhile, we love Kim Cattrall's spirit, her energy, and all-American looks. We look forward to her Olay Total Effects Anti-Aging Body Wash and Lotion commercials.
