Dawn French slams young women for buggering up equality with racy looks

Dawn French has been left unimpressed with young women for turning themselves into "Jessica Rabbits".

The French and Saunders comic, 64, compared the sexy toon from 1988 flick Who Framed Roger Rabbit to today’s trend among women for copying the Kardashians’ tans, pouting lips and curves.

Dawn said: “After all the fights women have had to be anywhere near equal to men. We’ve kind of gone and buggered it all up at the last minute by becoming Jessica Rabbits.”

She added: “I cannot entirely love perfect people.

“I cannot understand why people only want to show us how perfect they are.

“It makes me sad actually, especially with young people.

“I feel for my own daughter and Jennifer’s (Saunders’) daughters – and all the daughters – feeling like they’ve got to have the big lips and they’ve got to be orange and that they’ve got to have lashes on all the time.

“And that they’ve got to have Kardashian shapes. Impossible stuff.

“Whereas their flawed real beauty is just heavenly – it’s bliss. It’s bliss.

“I would love us to creep back to that.”

Dawn, who has daughter Billie, 30, with her first husband Sir Lenny Henry, has previously told of her weight struggles.

Her best pal Jennifer Saunders has three daughters – Ella, 36, Beattie, 35, and Freya, 31 – with comedian Adrian Edmondson.

The Vicar of Dibley actress also opened up about having to fight to be taken seriously in publishing, saying she has railed against suggestions to have “girly” front covers featuring cupcakes or kitten heel designs.

The author of four novels blasted: “That was not what the writing was. And that’s not who I am either.

“So I fought and fought to have very plain covers with one plain little image.

“It’s an effort to say, ‘Take me seriously’

“Some of this book will be funny, but take me seriously.”
