Rachel Dratch Says Her Looks Have Cursed Her Career


Rachel Dratch said her lack of “Hollywood looks” have derailed her chance to do film and TV. “By Hollywood standards, I’m a troll, ogre, woodland creature, or manly lesbian,” she writes, and that’s prevented her from getting the roles she wants. NBC replaced her as a 30 Rock lead for not being beautiful enough. No Rachel you are very pretty…on the inside and that’s what counts.

    Gee, my lack of looks (and talent) have hurt my movie career too, but you don’t hear me complaining about it. Until now that is.

    Hollywood only puts pretty people on the screen?

    At least me and her are on the same page. But I loved her SNL character Debbie DownSyndrome.

    Unfortunate, but she’s right. Shallow motherfuckers

    Ha. It’s not like she’s some great actress…!

    The world needs lesbian trolls, too.

    The fact that she’s not that pretty and was still on SNL for years should be a complement, but no… “Along Comes Debbie Downer” Wahn, Wahn…

    Somewhere, the Owl Girl from “A League Of Their Own” wishes she had Rachel Dratch good looks.

    She misses her opportunity to be a “troll” in Lord Of The Rings

    Hollywood must be full of anti-Semites.

    Acting is a weird world where you audition as an ugly or fat person, and are probably laughed at because you’re unattractive, then you have to go home knowing that you get jobs based on how people like to laugh at you.
     
    Rachel Dratch, though, makes me laugh because she does funny  characters on 30 rock, not because she’s ugly. I tend to give women points because they’re funny. A funny woman becomes more attractive to me.

    I never thought of her her beautiful, but I certainly never thought she was at all ugly. 
     
    She has a unique cuteness, IMO.

    I think she should thank her weird looks for getting on SNL.  If she was better looking she probably wouldn’t get some of the roles she did

    Shes got humongous tits. Regular girls use those to take the focus off their face all the time to get ahead

    I’m sure the fact that she’s unfunny and annoying has nothing to do with it.

    What happened to the days when actors had to act instead of look like super models reading lines.  oh fuck! I sound like blow hard… quick someone fucking shoot me

    But seriously if she isn’t in Peter Jacksons upcoming “the hobbit” then that casting director needs to be fired immediately
