Say What? Writer on Actresses Past Their "Expiration Date"

Say What? Writer on Actresses Past Their "Expiration Date"


Okay, let’s be honest: Drew Barrymore was never really all that hot. In fact, hot was never the appropriate adjective for her. She was cute as a little kid in E.T. and sometimes adorable in her twenties, and now…well, now she’s just another talking chubby face attached to a chubby body that should know better than to be projected on a giant movie screen.


— Blogger Nathan Bloch from Spike.com in a post entitled The Top 10 Actresses Past Their Expiration Date. Bloch is not all sexism and nastiness, though — he will grant that once upon a time, 20 years ago, Sarah Jessica Parker was "halfway decent."

And since when did someone's looks determine their ability to act well?

With the exception of Drew, I can say that I agree with some of the women on his list. Not because they're not beautiful or too old(or some of the meaner things he said) it's because I'm bored with seeing them. I never really liked some of those actresses, like Cameron Diaz who in my opinion can't act, and I would rather see new blood in Hollywood. That being said, I could also compile a list of men in Hollywood who I would love to see never do another movie, hello Will Farrel, but that's just me. The blogger is a prick and just wanted something he and his buddies could laugh about, he's a joke and the things he said are hurtful just to make waves nothing else.

What an absolute prick. He goes on about how Drew Barrymore (a woman who is not overweight) is chubby and should be in the plus-size section of a JCPenney catalogue, yet complains that Helen Hunt has bought into "the unattractive Hollywood fad of self-starvation". What exactly does he want then?

This is complete douchebaggery. The man needs to be tea-bagged repeatedly and forced to make out with a chimp.

Sigh. Your opinion has no merit Mr. Bloch. When you become well-known, have talent, and can write a decent article that your informed about I'll be interested in that list.

Hm, well it's mean, but he has a right to talk since he's such a breathtakingly handsome man. Ladies, he's single! Rawr!

What's that saying, opinions are like...********, everyone has one.While he thinks Drew Barrymore is chubby, expired, and should know better than to be projected on a giant body...there are millions other people out there who would disagree. My dad for example thinks she is the most gorgeous woman in the world, after my mom, of course. And for someone who claims to care so much about looks and the media...he shouldn't have posted a picture.

Well, I think this list is inaccurate. It seems like it's mostly based on the lack of youthful beauty. To me, that's NOT a measure of a valid actress. Incidentally, I happen to be underwhelmed by some the actresses on the list, but NOT based on their appearances. I think they need some work on their acting abilities, and they're unconvincing when they portray characters. My discontent is based on their abilities as actresses.

Is it a DB move? Absolutely. But women are JUST as bad. For example, read the posts on Rumer Willis. The comments tear her up one side and down the next. Just because the comments aren't published in the traditional sense doesn't mean they're any less hurtful or judgmental.
