The actress’ choice of body grooming *really* annoyed some.
If you want to make a statement, the awards season red carpet is pretty much THE place to do it. Which is why actress Lola Kirke chose her Golden Globes appearance to wear a “F*** Paul Ryan” badge. But her political pin didn’t annoy people nearly as much as her decision not to shave her armpits…
Lola is GIRLS star Jemima’s sister
The Gone Girl star arrived at the even wearing a pretty floral gown with subtle make up and loosely waved hair. When Lola posed for the waiting photographers she revealed unshaved armpits. Hardly the most shocking thing we’ve ever seen, either on the red carpet or off.
Apparently Kirke’s chose to forgo her razor riled people who have never even met the actress. Like, really riled.
Lola, who is the younger sister of GIRLS star Jemima, shared an Instagram post seemingly calling out people for sending her DEATH THREATS because of her fuzzy pits.
The pictures of Lola at the Globes were captioned…
Julia Roberts flashed hairy underarms in 1999
“Ok! Now I’m really ready. Thanks to all you beautiful people who didn’t send me death threats on account of my #awesome #hairyarmpits! You rule. And thank you @susanwinget for always making me feel cool and @reginaharris for my make up, @blakeerik for my hair and @andrewgn for my kickass dress!”
Lola isn’t the first female celebrity to have been open about her dislike of shaving her underarms.
Julia Roberts famously flashed hairy underarms in 1999 at the premiere of Notting Hill. Since then stars such as Hilary Swank, Drew Barrymore and Lola’s sister Jemima have all proudly sported fluffy pits.
We say Lola’s choice of fuzz is entirely hers! Instead, let’s focus on the passionate and important political statement Kirke was making with her pink badge.
The actress is opposed to defunding Planned Parenthood in the USA, something the politician is all for. Speaking to Elle, Lola explained, “Paul Ryan is talking about defunding Planned Parenthood. I think that, along with a number of other decisions that are being talked about being made by the new administration, is atrocious. As a person with a platform, no matter what size it is, I think it’s important to share your views and maybe elevate people that might agree with you, that maybe won’t feel like they can have the same voice. My body my choice, your body your choice.”
