Stupid Ads

RANT: I am sick to death of actors suddenly becoming MODELS. Don't you already make MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WITH YOUR REAL JOB?!??!?! Don't you get PLENTY OF ATTENTION being in movies, tv shows and on the red carpet, etc.? Do you really have to branch out into modeling? Singing? Clothing lines? Perfume? Makeup? Product endorsements? FUCK OFF. Let some other people make some money.

It's such a perverse development... and the worst is that covers with actors on them sell so much better. I do like Jurgen Teller's photography though :)

I adore your Sunday rant;-)
Seriously, have you noticed that actors suddenly have a perfume line? LOL

Lily Riani said...

every actors have own line and brand now... serious, they are not even designers.

I'd rather see them as models than as jewelry designers :-(

Marisa said...

"Let some other people make some money."

Hee. You are hilarious.

Claire Kiefer said...

Plus, she looks FUGLY there anyway.

Heather said...

you might think i'm stupid after what i have to say...

1. i actually really like helena bonham carter. if it were any other annoying actor, maybe i'd be more inclined to agree with you.

2. actors as models > models in general. in my opinion anyway. at least they look like they eat and aren't from another planet of hot brazilian bodies.

well now that i look at that pic again, helena kinda looks alien-ish...hmm.

Fuck Off famous ppl I second the motion. Such self important superficial people.

Though I really don't care for models either. Here's a thought how about regular people in ads. Gasp shocking I know. Like they'll ever go for my idea.

Farah said...

That's really scary....for real... :(

I'm not a fan of the entire celebrity culture and while I don't think modeling is the most noble of jobs, I think models should be hired for what's in their job description, i.e. posing for magazines and ads. I'm so sick of pop stars and actors gracing the covers of magazines and being used as spokespeople for every imaginable product. As you said, they're everywhere already and make enough money. Why on earth do they need to endorse brands as well?

Kellie said...

I want to punch Mariah Carey. She's not an actress but the same can go for singers. Why oh why does she think she should sell perfumes and crap on QVC? Unfortunately b/c some sucker buys that shit. Ugh.

blueviolet said...

That doesn't make me want to buy anything. It does however, make me want to punch Marc Jacobs in the face.

Elle Sees said...

I totally agree. Models are no longer on covers of mags anymore. And all celebs are about branding now. Gross. Over it.

Lorena said...

Seriously !
Apart from that she looks like an ill bunny.
A bunny that is about to throw up.
Or a version of little red ridding hood gone bad.

Lara said...

I'm sick of it too. I miss MODELS.
And that is NO way to sell product.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Yeah, that's gorgeous. NOT.

...love Maegan said...

I love your rant. I hate 99% of MJ ads.

Kitty Stampede said...

YES!!!!! I love your rant. It is exactly my thoughts. It is just down right annoying. so sick of seeing the same damn faces over and over. they DO NOT need to make anymore money. GO AWAY!!!!!! I don't even buy mags anymore..mostly ads anyways..and recycled material month after month. blah.

p.s.- love some of the comments above...especially mermaid gallery.
