From the New York Times comes an article that talks about how some casting directors and directors are reacting to butchered surgery jobs on actors…
Independent casting directors like Mindy Marin, who worked on theÂ Jason Reitman film â€œUp in the Air,â€ are urging talent agents to discourage clients from having surgery, particularly older celebrities who, she contends, are losing jobs because their skin is either too taut or swollen with filler. Said Ms. Marin: â€œWhat I want to see is real.â€
Even extras get the once-over. Sande Alessi, who helped cast the â€œPirates of the Caribbeanâ€ movies, said she offers to photograph actresses in their bathing suits, telling them they can keep the photo for their audition books.
Professional courtesy? Not exactly. Moviemakers prefer actresses with natural breasts for costume dramas and period films. So much so that when the Walt Disney Company recently advertised for extras for the new â€œPiratesâ€ film, the casting call specified that only women with real breasts need apply. By taking a photograph, Ms. Alessi said, â€œwe donâ€™t have to ask, we will know.â€
Talent > Plastic Looks… right?
Please someone tell that to Reality TV not even worth mentioning here.
And I love photos with wrinkles… of course, not MY photos with wrinkles, but I do love my movable face… even though my mother keeps telling me to stop making faces. So I’m kinda taking the Sally approach to limit of facial expressions hahahahaha.
