Washington (ANI): American actress Raquel Welch has equated her sex symbol status to being incarcerated. “I was feeling very much as if I had been sentenced to sex symbol-dome, and I was locked in this image and couldn"t get out," Welch told Fox News. Welch has also written a book named “Behind the Cleavage."
“I thought that maybe they would let me out on parole if I was really nice and good but then all I had to do was do a misstep and it was back in the “not-really-a-person" thing. I was just there to look at and not to give anything else… the convict," she said.
“When you"re just a poster girl it"s such an empty, empty feeling, and even though people may admire you, it"s not for who you are. It"s not about you, it"s just about 'her" and that totally superficial kind of a look," she added. “I don"t think anybody wants to feel like that they"re just good because of having looks. It"s just very uncomfortable and rather sad," she elaborated.
