Fans are seriously concerned about Leslie Jones after she posted a heartbreaking message
Putting aside the fame and riches, life in the spotlight can't be easy. I mean, can you imagine the pressure to look picture-perfect day after day? And I don't know about you, but I'd quickly come to resent the hoards of paparazzi committed to following my every move. However, it is ultimately the impossible beauty standards that Hollywood perpetuates that takes the biggest toll on its young, female stars. Comedian Leslie Jones, who is best known for her work on Saturday Night Live, recently spoke to this sentiment in an Instagram post which left her fans worried.
On Tuesday, the 50-year-old opened up to her followers on Instagram about a trip to the gym which left her second-guessing herself. "Ok back to cardio," the comedian wrote in the caption. "But confession I feel like I'm doing it for nothing".
Revealing that she feels as if something is missing in her life, she continued: "I know it's not. I'm healthy and look good but I really feel like 'what's it all for' if the people you want to notice don't. I just feel like I might die alone. Sorry that's pretty heavy today!!".
After reading Leslie's emotional post, her fans were quick to send her words of encouragement and stressed that she's most definitely loved by her viewers. One Twitter user stressed that Leslie should be her "own romance", writing, "Leslie. I'm a minister + I can tell you that everyone dies alone. Be healthy for you. Don't give so much power to men or objects of desire. Be your own romance. Get your own power back. I'm rooting for you." Another individual added, "Thank you for sharing this and being real. You’re letting tons of people see that we ALL have the same recurring thoughts and issues. That aside, you’re a goddess and an inspiration!"
While it's all too easy to get into a rut of negative thinking and convince yourself that you're destined to be "forever alone", it's important to air these thoughts from time to time - just like Leslie did in her recent Instagram post. Not only does it often result in discovering that everyone feels this way occasionally, but it also provides comfort to those who are going through something similar. In any case, expressing your emotions is always a cathartic experience.
Leslie Jones, we hope you feel better soon, and that you have realised that you are truly beloved by your fans.
