Mexican entertainment star Maribel Guardia participated in the campaign "No Des them back, Dales Chest" in which she was photographed topless and in the process the 54 year old beauty displayed a body that many women half her age would be envious of. The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness in Mexican women about the benefits of breastfeeding babies as 85% of Mexican women do not breastfeed their babies.
She has received criticism about how her breasts have been surgically enhanced and that her body makes other women feel insecure about their own. Fellow actress Camilla Sodi who had posed for pictures publicly disavowed the campaign because it only had women such as Maribel Guardia who have had breast implants.
Entertainment insiders quietly shake their heads as did Maribel Guardia because as she stated, the focus is the message and the fact that medical evidence has proven the benefits of breastfeeding and breast implants do not affect the feeding of a child, something many consider one of the most attractive things a mother can do.
Maribel Guardia was unfazed by the criticism because she is a strong believe in the project and she is accustomed to the spotlight and embraces it. This is a woman who has helped her ex-husband, entertainer Joan Sebastian overcome bone cancer and not blinked an eye and who has been a entertainer in the spotlight since 1980.
Filmmakers and entertainment insiders look at the fact that she has taken such pride in her body as one of the many reasons she is in such demand as an actress and model and also note that she is not given credit for her savvy marketing.
She knew that this project would stir emotions but it has made her the focus of a media controversy which filmmakers and entertainment insiders note is about a important topic and the pictures of her semi-naked body are free advertising showing her as still a sensual and voluptuous beauty.
Maribel Guardia standing strong against the criticism of her breast implants and her advocating of breastfeeding has only made her more loved by fans and filmmakers who envision her in projects of controversial topics and plot lines.
