Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have done bold photo shoots with Playboy and various other magazines. How you are so body confident and advice to your compatriots?
Ms. Juliette Fretté: I like how you say ‘bold’. As for body confidence, well to be frank, my body image confidence has ebbed and flowed over the years. When you’re a women in the public eye making a living from your sexual appeal, it can sometimes be difficult to separate your self-worth from your appearance. And since my first instinct has historically been type ‘A’ perfectionism, there were times when I had difficulty feeling as confident as I appeared in a consistent way. Luckily over the years, more authentic confidence has made a permanent home in my psyche, for which I am grateful.
So now what is my advice to others with regard to creating body confidence even if you don’t feel super sexy or don’t measure up to your own arbitrary standards? The answer is simple but requires a lot of work. And it may take you years to get it right, but it’s worth the time. Every day you need to talk to yourself preferably aloud (maybe do it in the car or alone if you’re concerned about people thinking you’re a nut). And say to yourself in as many different ways as possible “I love myself”, “I am self-loving”, “I honor my body”, “I am stunningly beautiful in every way”, etc. Say these things five or more times per day even if you don’t really believe them. Eventually you will brainwash yourself. This is not a joke!
Think of it like this. The noise of collective cultural beliefs is always going to be filtering its way into your mind, mostly by way of the media and the surrounding culture – even through your friends and family with their own fears, insecurities, and perceived limitations. Living in this ‘belief system soup’, there’s no way to control whether or not you are absorbing healthy or helpful ideologies. So if that *noise* is always going to be present in your life on an unconscious level, why not create your own special noise (your own belief systems) and actively brainwash yourself before something else does?
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Tell us about a memorable experience you still remember about one of the photo shoots or videos that you wish to share?
Ms. Juliette Fretté: They are all fun in their own right. But I really enjoyed the times when I was able to feature my art in the background or in the forefront of a photoshoot. I also feel lucky that I was able to actually paint some doodles on camera during two of them.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: What do you wish to say about the website Womenfitness.net and message for its visitors?
