In the feedback, a few of Curtis’ followers took challenge with the actor’s categorization.

“I think that rather applauding women wearing no makeup, we should be applauding that she seems to have found her comfort zone and seems to be embracing what that is for her at that age,” one Instagram consumer wrote. “I don’t think we should start applauding less makeup, more makeup, etc., but rather women embracing what THEY want to do in the moment and not what anyone else wants them to do.”

Another chided that Anderson’s makeup-free look is “great but women should not be labeled brave for feeling comfortable in their own skin.”

Curtis made one other put up about Anderson solely days later. She shared two stills from the Vogue France interview.

“I did notice that there were all these people doing big makeup looks, and it’s just like me to go against the grain and do the opposite what everyone’s doing,” she defined. “I think we all start looking a little funny when we get older. And I’m kind of laughing at myself when I look at the mirror. I go, ‘Wow, this is really…what’s happening to me?’ It’s a journey.”
