Quatrième de couverture :

Teen runaway, supermodel, and actress Carré Otis found herself in the public eye from a very tender age. By the time she was twenty, millions of people had already gazed at provocative images of her in magazine and billboard ads from Guess and Calvin Klein, on the pages of Playboy and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, and on posters for the controversial film Wild Orchid, with her soon-to-be husband Mickey Rourke. Their troubled marriage was widely reported in the media, as were Carré's struggles with drugs and a particularly brutal eating disorder. But simply because we've seen someone naked on the page or exposed on the screen or in the tabloids doesn't mean we know who that person really is.

In Beauty, Disrupted, Carré Otis confronts her complex past fearlessly and with unrelenting candor. The result is a narrative of success, despair, and ultimate triumph over sexual exploitation and our cultural obsession with appearance—a narrative of beauty disrupted, reclaimed, and made more radiant through self-acceptance, inner peace, and the love of family.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Throughouther career, supermodel and actress Carré Otis hasbeen celebrated for her striking physical beauty—but in this brazenly honestmemoir she revisits the ugliest parts of her past to reveal the events thatultimately brought her to strive for, and champion, the kind of beauty that canonly be found within. In Beauty Disrupted Carrédetails the triumphs and challenges of her career in modeling, her rise to fameon the covers of Elle, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and MarieClaire, her battle against eating disorders and drug addiction, and herinfamous marriage to Mickey Rourke. BeautyDisrupted is her inspiring and personal memoir, a story of difficultlessons learned and inner beauty rediscovered, by a woman famous the worldover—not only for her face but, now, for her fighter’s spirit.

Description du livre HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. État : New. 220 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Carre Otis has been in the public eye ever since she was in her mid-teens. Millions of people have gazed at her image in magazines from Guess and Calvin Klein ads to poses on the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and Playboy. They ve also seen her on posters and in her controversial sex scene with her then-future husband, Mickey Rourke, in the film Wild Orchid . The troubled marriage to Rourke that followed was widely covered in the media, as were Carre s struggles with drugs and a particularly brutal eating disorder. But to see someone naked on the page or exposed on the screen doesn t mean we know who they really are. After years in the modeling and entertainment industries, Carre has spent the last decade on a deep and private spiritual journey, focusing on her own growth and on that of her family. Having found the balance and the serenity she worked so hard to achieve, she s now ready to tell her side of the story. Her greatest incentive to do so are her two young daughters, as it is imperative that they hear of their mother s past from her, rather than encounter it on the Internet. For this reason-and for the sake of all our daughters-she confronts her complex past fearlessly and with unremitting candor. The result is a remarkable narrative of success, despair, and ultimate triumph. Beauty, Disrupted is more than the familiar celebrity story of rise and fall, and then rise again. Carre is keenly aware that her struggles were not unique to her, or even to women in the modeling industry, as we live in a culture that places impossible expectations on young women-including intense pressure to be thin, beautiful, successful, and pleasing to one s family, teachers, and men. The conflicting ideals to which young girls are held are simply overwhelming. They re told, Be smart but not too smart, Be thin but don t be anorexic, Be sexy, but don t be a slut. Naturally, eating disorders, drug and alcohol addiction, self-injury, and self-destructive sexual behaviors abound. The scars that our culture inflicts on teen girls can last a lifetime. In Carre s case, she came to see the cause of these scars as a kind of spiritual illness-a socially constructed sickness threatening us all. The story of how she journeyed from such life-threatening circumstances and behaviors to such life-affirming ones is more than a cautionary tale-it an inspiring truth intended for all of our daughters as well as the mothers and fathers who love them.
