The actress Jennette McCurdy has denied that she has any status as a role model on Reddit.


Jennette McCurdy, the actress, has been upfront and personal on Reddit. In a long rant that seemed never-ending she admitted very honestly that she was not a role model and had never been for that matter.

"I am not a role model. I don't claim to be, I don't try to be, and I don't want to be," the 21-year-old wrote on Reddit.

"There was a time when I tried to live up to the aggrandizing title, that pedestal of a thing. Maybe it wasn't so much that I was trying to live up to it. Perhaps I thought I could and I thought I was supposed to, so I gave it my best shot."

McCurdy also said that in the past people may have expected her to behave and she too may have tried to live up to some pretty unreasonable and unattainable standards of idealism, but now she was over all that bovine excrement.

She had grown up and become an adult and was thus mature enough to make her own decisions for herself. She than went on to say that she made some mistakes along the way but even if she hadn’t people would still have judged her harshly since she was in the media spotlight.

The world, she said, was a very negative place despite all the touchy-feely mush that went on in it. "To remove myself from the role model battle, the falsified standard set by the bubblegum industry, is - in my eyes - to remove myself from the counterintuitive battle of attempting to be something perfect while being glaringly aware of my imperfections," wrote McCurdy.

McCurdy has placed herself outside the influence of the rumor mill by giving up trying to be the best. It is a losing battle and you set yourself up for failure the minute you try to be a perfectionist.

So it is better to get off the ladder and be normal. Jennette said that she still loved a heart emoji and her collection of teddy bears. And she absolutely adored American Girl dolls.

Even such things as a pretty ensemble, aromatherapy candles and funky pop music appealed to her. But she said that these things were not part of a role model’s repertoire.

 

A role model was a role model by the sheer acts in his or her life. And as for the public, they had no idea how she lived her life so they did not have the right to pass value judgments on her behavior.

She finally called it a day on Reddit by spouting the truth that you ought to look for role models in the right places and not on screen. She was definitely not a role model and so her fans ought to stop worshipping her as if she was one!
