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.

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

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

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

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

I never thought of her her beautiful, but I certainly never thought she was at all ugly. 

 

She has a unique cuteness, IMO.

She missed her opportunity to be a Troll in Lord Of The Rings

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.

Hollywood must be full of anti-Semites.

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

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...

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

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.

 @LizSetsFire I doubt she has enough money for all the surgery it would require.
