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