Not so Ugly Betty

January 11, 2007

Anyone who picks up this month’s Elle will have seen that America Ferrera, star of Ugly Betty (Fridays, Ch4 9.30) ain’t so ugly after all. She’s stunning! Phwoargh and all that…

Isn’t it weird that media makers seem to uglify pretty actresses for ‘ugly’ roles. Look at Cameron Diaz in Being John Malcovich. Kudos to her for doing away with her Hollywood pride and all that, but surely there are plainer actresses around that are just as good? Obviously none with as big a name as Cameron Diaz, but this America bird (and that’s her real name by the way) isn’t that well known is she? Maybe she’s bigger over that side of the pond…

Anyway, it’s funny what a good blow dry, no braces and better clothes can do for a gal isn’t it?

    Not to mention plucking those massive caterpillar eyebrows…

    apparently, all they do is brush them upwards… anyway, as predicted (see above) Betty does get a makeover in the coming weeks and they do pluck her eyebrows, so I’m assuming she’ll be getting prettier and prettier as the weeks go by and will emmerge (butterfly-like) as Pretty Betty by the end of the series… *snore*
