Site Review: Knocking Starlets off their Pedestal

November 21, 2005 by molly

I go out to the movies weekly, but I have got to confess I’m getting a little bored with Hollywood’s choice in leading ladies. I don’t really mind their impeccable skin, improbably large breasts, and impossibly tiny thighs. But gosh it seems like the most relatable thing I’ve seen on the big screen lately is Jennifer Aniston’s nose. And it’s pretty difficult to connect with a character on film when they look unlike any creature you’ve ever beheld before in the real world. Sure, we worship them for these qualities. But as much as we obsess, we also grow bitter and start to resent. We search for any evidence of them being commonplace, dowdy, or being downright flawed and unattractive. I mean come on, celebrity cellulite spottings sell tabloids as much just as hot gossip about their love-lives.


And it is in this cruel vein of celebrity scrutinizing that I take great guilty pleasure in eBaum’s World’s “Celebrities without Makeup” page. But it is a limited pleasure. Some of the pictures are satisfyingly creepy or disturbing, but most are just celebs caught contorting their faces in the midst of speech or squinting in the sun. And half of them still look like the incredibly attractive people they are, minus really, really good lighting. Still, it is a bit satisfying to have a chuckle at a blotchy-faced Cameron Diaz’s expense.
That said, I probably own half a dozen magazines with her on the cover and I’m eagerly awaiting the day when she releases her patchouli and old socks-scented perfume. Find more photos at ebaumsworld.com.
