(What are we doing?)
I was merely creating a void for people to fill with debate about intrusion, misogyny, plastic surgery, and a person's right to choose how they look without being subject to spite and vindictiveness from the media and public.
That would be nice.
This is the problem with the media. First it's encouraging Hollywood stars to have radical plastic surgeries, and then the trickle-down effect is that daytime UK TV presenters start likening themselves to produce.
when I swam with Lorraine Kelly in a Majorcan lagoon?
it's not good.
1) he's American? i was sure he was Irish
2) he turned down Men In Black, just as his career was starting to wane
3) he's now the lead in an NCIS spinoff. so that makes him, like, a less cool David Caruso
4) he was in a film of Max Payne. they made a film of Max Payne? and it made like $85m at the box office? how have i no memory of this
you've done loads of stuff
wish you were my Mum.
...how newspapers really set the tone for stories like this. I wonder what mine, and everyone elses, thoughts would be if the Guardian hadn't run that piece on it.
Bit like that Brian Harvey story. Fine to laugh at him when he ran himself over, not funny that he turned up at Downing Street with a ring binder.
Fine to laugh at Lil Kim, not fine to laugh at Renee Zellweger.
It's a bloody minefield!
nothing wrong with a ring binder.
that he turned up at Downing street with a ring binder.
You see, I know it it very sad, but I opcuildn't help but let out a little fond laugh. Albeit it a 'oh no Brian, you poor thing, why is nobody looking out for you and making you not do things like this that will be caught by twerps and put on twitter.'
Or maybe he did just really have a binder full of great ideas for the PM.
I know you shouldn't take mental health issues lightly, but neither should we laugh at a lot of other things that as humans we laugh at. maybe in private right enough.
Are we collectively not finding it funny that Brian Harvey turned up at Downing St with a ring binder?
I just can't help but titter a bit. Whilst obviously hoping he's ok. Is there a chance he could have maybe sustained some brain damage/ cognitive difficulties after running over his head/ Potatogate?
But the manifestation of those issues as him turning up at Downing Street with a ring binder demanding to see the Prime Minister is, objectively, pretty funny really.
DC read the ring binder. decided they were all brilliant and appointed brian harvey the deputy
And David Cameron was all, slow it down! Don't need to finish by Friday - you can stay another day if you like.
And Brian was all like, nah, it's alright.
'Not funny that he turned up at Downing street with a ring binder'.
I was merely quoting C_LMAO's post and explaining why I did (to my shame a bit) find it a wee bit funny!
because he's always worn stuff like that and that's just him and not his condition? Please confirm.
unless it can be shown that he only ever wore the hat because of madness. (not The Group).
long may it continue
As a white male, I have no opinion on whether it looks good or bad.
and then mocking someone who dares get some work done to make them feel happier about themselves. Not allowed to talk about it though, Fidel wants to shut this whole thing down.
she does look COMPLETELY different
Obviously she can do whatever the fuck she likes and it's nobodies place to judge or make anyone feel inferior about how they look or what they do.
It is definitely noteworthy just how different she looks though, from the point of view of advances in the field more than anything. Like you can usually actually tell it's the same person, this is like something out of an outlandish spy film.
and to be fair they haven't really mentioned anything negative, just 'she makes a rare appearance at whatever the event was, looks different'
but yeah it's not that she looks older or that she has had plastic surgery, it is like it is just a different face
i bet they don't mention when you have a haircut
no one has noticed so far (or mentioned)
so maybe i would get away with a nice face
might give it a go and let you know how i get on
i'm on it!
I mean if someone turned up at my office looking like that I don't think any of my co-workers would assume it was Renee Zellweger.
Also view some of the other pics out there.
It's definitely her. A still photo can really look odd in a way that person moving around doesn't.
starting production on I'm Still Here 2: Yup, *Still* Here
was Raphael in the touring Turtles.
to all of this celeb goss bullshit. And then I started having to get the tube and then started reading the Metro and whatnot. I genuinely didn't know who Cara Delevingne or Rita Ora were. But I do now. Sweet Lord I do now :(
Seem to remember there was a couple of little photos of her pullling some kind of face. But that could have been yesterday. Or the day before. Or the day before that.
Hard to imagine news media without her now.
This is the first time I have seen her name.
Is it De-la-veeeeeen or De-la-vin-yuh?
I'm guessing the latter.
i think she's just back to herself now
good one 2014 me.
helen Fielding released another Bridget Jones sequel. If I recall right, it was a bit tangental to the others- not farcical slapstick, and really terribly dark, set in BJ's later life.... so I wonder if they'll wait for renee to have an old bridget face before shooting that one into a film.
or at least its in the pipeline
cause hugh grant has rulled himself out of it
-Wasn't too interested
-Then someone said that she looks totally different, like a spy film or something. That got my interest.
you'll all be the first to know
I think she just has her eyes open more widely, maybe she has contact lenses, and exposed forehead, exposed foreheads can make people look pretty different
I want to hear what Butthead has to say
Celebrities is out of control and I can understand people criticising the media for being like 'omg look at her face!' because it's so cruel but I can't help but be intrigued. It feels a bit sci-fi (I guess it's mostly curiosity about advances in surgery as Chris said up there)
until I realised I was getting Renee Zellweger and Reece Witherspoon mixed up.
Just say something deliberately inflammatory.
with Lil Kim
has undergone a Michael Jackson-style transformation of her skin colour, nose shape, and quality of wig since 1997'.
which really gets me there.
but on a less dramatic scale the fact you can change your hair so much, and your face just with make up and dyes perplexes me so much. I could not make myself look different if I tried.
Me without make up and me with make up = no difference.
and I thought, bloody hell, Lil Kim does look different these days
