As I look back on my life, I don’t think there’s ever been a time where I didn’t have something that I truly hated regarding my looks. I’ve always found something to hate regarding my looks- my weight, my natural red hair, my fair skin, moles, wide calves, etc.
If I’m being honest with myself though, I’ve grown out of some of my ugly dislikes. As a child everyone referred to me as a redheaded stepchild or carrot top. I hated both nicknames. As a teenager, I felt like an ugly outcast and would have done anything to fit in. I recall dying my hair several times to change the way I looked.
Now that I’m older, I look back on those days and laugh. I’ve learned to embrace who I am and how I look. Sure, there may be times when I wish my stomach was flat or that I could find a pair of boots to fit over my calves. However, I no longer look in the mirror and want to change who I am. I love my red hair and embrace it daily.
In the adorably different town of Uglyville, weird is celebrated, strange is special and beauty is embraced as more than simply meets the eye. Here, the free-spirited Moxy and her UglyDoll friends live every day in a whirlwind of bliss, letting their freak flags fly in a celebration of life and its endless possibilities. The endearingly unique residents of Uglyville occasionally look to the sky above the town, where a new UglyDoll will appear and be embraced by the community.
Moxy (Kelly Clarkson) loves her square-peg life in this round-hole town, but her curiosity about all things leads her to wonder if there’s something – anything – on the other side of the mountain which nestles Uglyville. Moxy gathers a group of her closest friends and sets off to find what’s on the other side. They discover another world – Perfection – a town where more conventional dolls are trained in protocols before they graduate and are sent to the “real” world to find the love of a child.
In Perfection, Moxy and her crew are subject to the manipulations of Lou (Nick Jonas), the perfect doll in charge of training recruits. Here, the UglyDolls will confront what it means to be different, struggle with their desire to be loved, and ultimately discover that you don’t have to be perfect to be amazing because who you truly are is what matters most.
UGLYDOLLS releases in theaters this Friday, May, 3.
