The singer and actress reckons there’s too much stress when trying to achieve everything
Billie Piper has admitted she feels under immense pressure every day – admitting that the stress of modern life ‘f**ks you up’.
Speaking to Stylist magazine, Billie, 34, confessed she finds it impossible to be ‘all things to all people’.
“I just think some of this new-age female emancipation can often land us in that place in our 30s where we feel, I’m supposed to have this, this and this…
“I’m supposed to be successful and business-savvy and coquettish and making cash and a slag in the bedroom and well-read and I’m supposed to be on top of all of these things, because it’s my time.
“I just feel f**ked by this amount of pressure! It feels like it is unnatural to be able to do all of those things. I think it’s shaky in its brand, do you know what I mean?”
She also took a swipe at feminism, explaining: “When I’m around women of my [24-year-old] sister’s generation, I think there’s this really misguided view of what (feminism) actually is,” she told Stylist. “It’s a bit man-hating and sort of over-sexualised. I think young girls misread what feminism is.”
Billie – who divorced her second husband Laurence Fox in 2016 – has achieved more by her early 30s than many of us can expect to achieve in a lifetime, having been one of the greatest pop stars of the later ’90s, Doctor Who’s assistant, a sexy call girl on TV, a renowned stage actress and mother of two.
Billie is mum to Winston and Eugene, her kids with Laurence. She was formerly married to DJ Chris Evans for six years.
