Elisha Cuthbert Pressured To Pose

Elisha Cuthbert’s career has been pretty impressive, considering she started out as a child actor and went on to become one of Hollywood‘s most recognizable faces.

But she didn’t get there without a few bumps along the way — including being pressured to pose for sexualized men’s magazines as an “it” girl in 2004. “I remember being at my lawyer’s office one day and they were like, ‘Well here is all these magazines offers,'” continued Elisha Cuthbert who was promoting her new superhero movie alongside Brie Larson.

“They’re great magazines —’ And I was like, ‘I’m not doing them.'” And he was like: ‘Oh why not? These are great magazines.’ And I said: ‘Yeah, I understand that but — I don’t want to be a woman that poses for men’s magazine because I know what those pictures look like.'”

When asked about her decision to pose for men’s magazines, Elisha Cuthbert said she was pressured to do so.

“I was a huge it girl in the mid-2000s, and it was almost expected that I would be an ‘it’ girl who posed,” the actress said of her career circa 2004. “But that wasn’t me at all. It took me awhile to find my own style and fall into things that made me happy.”

Elisha Cuthbert Caught In The Fanfare

Elisha Cuthbert landed her first acting role on the Canadian television series “Road to Avonlea” when she was just 7 years old. She later starred on shows such as “The Border” and played a supporting role in season four of “24.”

By 2007, Elisha was an It Girl thanks to roles in films like “The Girl Next Door” and TV shows such as “Two Guys, A Girl And A Pizza Place.” She even appeared in an ad campaign for Calvin Klein underwear alongside Justin Timberlake (who also starred with her on 2GAP).

Cuthbert continued by saying she didn’t want her image being used for the sole purpose of selling clothes and products. She also said it wouldn’t make sense for her character on The Good Doctor as Dr. Claire Brown to appear in a men’s magazine because she is too wholesome and clean-cut for that kind of thing.
