Virginia Madsen, the sultry actress who wooed audiences (and Paul Giamatti) in Sideways, has been sending two contradictory messages to women in a new public service announcement.
Following a recent team-up between Allergan—the maker of Botox—and the League of Women Voters, Madsen has been encouraging women to get involved in the political process.
At the same time, as the wrinkle-free face of Allergan, Madsen has attempted to sell women on the benefits of a new age-fighting drug.
On the surface, inspiring women to exert themselves politically and also refurbish their appearance with drugs seems to be a mixture of feminism and anti-feminism. However, Madsen eloquently explains her rationale.
"It really is about the total woman," Madsen said. "There are so many aspects to us, so many different choices we have as women today with our bodies, our minds, beauty, brains."
