The actress spoke about what her child faces due to the fact that he wears long hair.
Alicia Silverstone is raising a 9-year-old son, Bear. Recently on her Instagram, she said that the boy is teased by peers because of his long hair. At the same time, the baby is in no hurry to part with his luxurious hairstyle and wants to grow his hair even longer. Alicia posted several photos with Bear and wrote:
I just love his hair in these pictures. At one time, the guys laughed at him when he went to the surf camp. When he returned, he told me about it, and I thought that he would want to cut his hair. We signed up to the hairdresser, and when he came, the son asked: “Cut me so that I can grow my hair to the waist.” This is my boy!
Alicia noted that she does not support stereotypes about hairstyles and her son looks the way he wants.
He knows who he is. He loves his hair and wants it to be long. Mom and Dad are not going to dissuade him. He’s handsome and we love his hair too! We have never imposed on him any social ideas about how a boy’s or a girl’s hair should look. We must accept our children and who they want to be without any judgment! Besides, many handsome men wear long hair: Brad Pitt, Harry Styles, Jason Momoa … Yes, even Jesus!
– shared Silverstone.
Alicia follows a strict vegan diet and so does her child. In an interview, she told how Bear feels with such a diet:
I always find it funny when they say, “Oh my poor vegan baby is so weak.” Because mine runs and jumps everywhere and is full of energy. But he also has concentration and calmness, so he does not go beyond. I don’t yell at him or try to build. All I say is, “No, Bear, thank you.” And he understands. When children do not eat well, feel bad, then they behave badly.
