R59: Anna Moffo and Scarlett Johansson had plastic surgery. The difference is that Anna’s surgery made her beautiful, like Salma Hayek and Halle Berry. Scarlett’s nose was improved, but she’s pretty, not beautiful.

Neve Campbell: just pretty

Cleopatra: intelligent and charismatic, not beautiful. The casting of E. Taylor had nothing to do with reality.

Katarina Witt: not unattractive, but mannish.

Cass Elliot? Not even if she had lost 100 lbs.

Whenever I think of Jennifer O’Neill I chuckle, because this one post re: her autobiography is the most… bracing review I ever read on Amazon:


[quote]This book is good, very readible. Jennifer is gorgeous, talented & has the luck of the stars following her everywhere, BUT . . . gads what a mess of a person psychologically. Nothing, I mean nothing, is explained for her behavior & incompetence, especially in regards to her main victims, her children. Didn't many, many miscarriages give her the hint, DON'T HAVE CHILDREN? And in any age & time her disbelief of her daughter's abuse by one of her husbands is a crime alone. And then to send her son by the same abuser to live with him (an admitted felon when she married him) after she was informed what he did to her daughter? And the fact that no one can stand her for long, not her brother, or her first ex-husband and his new wife who tried to help her abused daughter, or anyone? And then to keep having children, throwing them to the current nanny (or whoever) some of which were sexually aggressive towards Jennifer herself? And to marry one after the other every time her hormones said GO? If she wasn't so unbelievably lucky (not accounting for her beauty, lots of us are gorgeous but don't have her golden touch) in the real world outside of Hollywood, she would be HOMELESS right now!

[quote] At the end of the book, she throws herself at yet another man, marries again with little or no investigation (making him the 8th) thereby victimizing her last son to another 10 years of abuse, and she now claims to know God.

[quote]What is she leaving out? That she is deaf, dumb & blind? That she has been a total alcoholic for years & years? That she has such an abrasive personality that no one can stand her but animals? Or that she is just plain crazy with a knack for making money every time she turns around? Why doesn't she tell us what really happened?

[quote]Still, this is an amazing book! It is as entertaining for what is says as for what it doesn't say! Anyone who reads it is going to long to know the truth.

[quote]I give her credit for her writing, it's good. I just wonder about WHY? At the end she claims to have found God. Yet after all that she has done in her past, she has not had one day of self reflection or gotten a good psychiatrist with all her money. She just gets "Born Again", "married again," expecting us to believe that she & her minor children are going to be all right.

[quote] I have one guarantee, she will be fine. Her children need intervention. Let the horsies have this girl!

[quote]r85 didn’t she shoot someone or something? Up in Bedford?

In 1982 O’Neill supposedly shot herself by accident, mishandling a gun while at home.

Though maybe she was covering for one of her many husbands?

NYT: [italic] With a single wound from a handgun in the abdomen, Miss O'Neill placed a call for help from her sprawling three-story home at 320 McLain Street here. Officers from the Mount Kisco and Bedford forces responded and found her lying on a bed bleeding.

'I found her barely conscious and in tremendous pain,' said Officer Frank McCann of the Bedford police. An ambulance took her to the hospital at 6:36 P.M. A hospital employee said Miss O'Neill was conscious and screaming, 'I can't breathe, I can't breathe.'

The police said two other people were in the house at the time of the shooting, but would not identify them. Nor would they say who owned the gun or who might have fired it.

By far the most beautiful was Hedy Lamar, in my opinion. Perfection.

It would be best if you factor in that many of these women were naturally, or nearly naturally beautiful. No fillers, facelifts, suctions, lasers, and on and on. They had only the benefit of good lighting, good makeup, natural beauty, and good photographers.

Oh, no. I think when the chips are down, Ava Gardner was probably the most beautiful actress to come out of Hollywood. Very unique.

There was a strength to her face that made it much more than just “pretty.” Kelly, Taylor, Dahl etc. had very delicate, symmetrical, doll-like faces that made them famous, but Gardner’s goes a few steps further thanks to its individuality. She was never just a doll.

(Though I do agree she looked harsher as she aged; she partied hard.)
