I was watching The Devil Wears Prada and I was getting irritated that the filmmakers wanted me to suspend my disbelief so far that I would believe that Anne Hathaway was fat and ugly.
And then I remembered that audiences were asked to believe that Tina Fey was unattractive at least once a week when she was on 30 Rock.
This also happened to Hilary Duff during and after Lizzie McGuire. She was an adorable blonde with cartoonishly big eyes, but was still the one that no boy noticed until he bumped into her and said, “wow, I guess hoodies CAN be sexy!”
I guess she was the only one who knew about them. In high school. In 2004.
But whatever. This is the same industry that thinks it is at all reasonable to ask Jennifer Lawrence how she is possibly ever hired to be in movies. You know. Because she’s so fat, it doesn’t make sense.
