The actress known for her role in “Vampire Diaries” is attracting a lot of attention for the health insurance exchanges.
Nina Dobrev has joined many other celebrities who have been tweeting in order to encourage people to learn more about the healthcare reforms and to take part in the health insurance exchanges where they can purchase their plans under the Affordable Care Act, but she has taken a rather unique tack to make sure that people are paying attention.
The actress tweeted “#GetCovered, Because w/o it, you’re naked” and posted herself with a sign on Instagram.
The hashtag was in reference to the health insurance marketplaces that have just opened as a central element to the healthcare reforms. The full tweet read “Im Canadian. We have healthcare for all. If you dont have insurance go to http://say.ly/cdi6TN2 and #GetCovered ,Because w/o it, youre naked.”
What stood out from the many other celebrities backing the healthcare reforms was that Dobrev’s picture was topless.
With her tweet, Dobrev joined many other celebrities who are backing the healthcare reforms over twitter, including other actors and actresses such as Connie Britton, Rosario Dawson, Kate Bosworth, and Kerry Washington. Many others from the film, television, and music industries (among others) have also been adding their own support, though Dobrev is the only one to go topless, so far. That said, other celebrities have also been attracting attention in very unique ways, such as the “Wake the F*** Up” video from actor Samuel L. Jackson.
According to a Us Weekly report, Dobrev’s topless picture has had the impact that she was aiming to create, as it has generated over 94,000 likes for the grassroots healthcare reforms campaign.
These efforts to build greater awareness and participation in the healthcare reforms and the health insurance exchanges has become a type of trend among celebrities who support the cause and wish to do their own part in the campaign. This is likely to attract far more attention than any of the previous marketing and awareness efforts that have been officially run by the federal government for the Affordable Care Act.
