Paz De La Huerta, “one of the rare artists that are left,” recently posed naked for Terry Richardson. I find the shoot notable not for what she decided to show (as if she’s ever played a character who likes to wear clothes), but for what she seems not to want to show: her right (from her P.O.V.) breast.
Looking through the photos, you’ll see she hides (or at least partially obscures) her right boob in most of them. Or pretty much all of them, if you count “interacting with or otherwise adjusting her breasts” as obscuring. Here she is, obscuring it with a robe:
And here, a record:
Here, a book (notice how she’s lifting her left arm but her right breast is still perkier):
Which reminds me of some other weird boob photos that have been taken of Paz, like this one. What’s up with that?
I’m guessing that Paz once had uneven boobs and she tried to “correct it” with plastic surgery, but she made the mistake of visiting the same hack who did her lips. This left her with one normal-looking boob and one preternaturally perky one, a fact she takes great pains to hide for someone who claims to be so comfortable in her own skin. There’s nothing wrong with having uneven boobs (many women’s are at least a little bit uneven), but I find it at least somewhat ironic that someone whose entire schtick is “I am sexy and confident and everyone who thinks I’m an asshole is just jealous” would go to such lengths to “fix” (and subsequently hide) what her body looks like. I guess we all have insecurities.
