The "Big Bang Theory" star says that Hollywood has changed since she was a young girl.

Just last year, Mayim Bialik made waves when she started blogging and discussed (and panned) many things about modern Hollywood, like Frozen and Ariana Grande. She stopped after there was some backlash about some of the things that she said. However, she is back at it now - and she has a lot to say.

She launched a blog called Grok Nation where she discusses everything from parenting and shooting on her television show to gun rights and private tutoring.

However, what she is getting attention for is the way she discusses aging in Hollywood:

I just heard about this treatment. This cryotherapy method of freezing your fat in order to lose weight. You apparently stand in a six-foot-tall machine that blasts you with air between minus 184 and minus 292 degrees Fahrenheit. This supposedly freezes off fat, boosts metabolism, and in the process, melts away about 800 more calories than your fat body used to. (At least that’s what they say.)

The star, who has publicly talked about all the problems that she had with fame as she aged, particularly because she doesn't fit the western ideals of beauty, then went on to talk about her coming-of-age in the spotlight:

In my Blossom years, there was far less emphasis on perfection. The ideal body in the 80s and 90s was a Playboy bunny: skinny, with large fake breasts and no curves (except for the large fake breasts). Blonde was in, big lips and big puppy dog eyes were in and tons of lip gloss and mascara. No one wore SPANX or any such corset. Certainly not men! You wore clothes that flattered your body, but the idea that there should be no “bumps” to your physique did not exist.

Mayim then goes on about some of the things that really do bug her about what we are doing for beauty, including the apparent need for Hollywood to correct hooded eyes and visible veins. She trashes Botox, plastic surgery, manicures, and gym obsessions. She says that while she hates to be part of a business that encourages this type of behavior, she wants to represent a different type of beauty. She hopes that her readers will do the same.
