These names used to stand for something, or so it seemed. Hollywood has a strange way of aiding in the compromise of standards and career paradigm, especially when it offers a taste of celebrity sweetness, then beckons with a few sellout offers necessary to sustain a desired lifestyle. What in the Hades does that mean? It means that people love the perks of celebrity, and they’ll sell out any artistic standard in order to maintain the cash flow. We get it, people need to work, but to shamelessly dismiss their career mettle?
9. Janeane Garofalo
We’ll start with a light sting, and address Janeane Garofalo. What happened here? Janeane was an indie princess–that hotter than she’d ever let you know type o’ gal, who did weird scripts, and some great, edgy comedies. The comedienne/actress enjoyed roles in cult classics such as Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, and Wet Hot American Summer, and Janeane was always playing characters who were above the bull****. She had a knack for calling out any of the crap she encountered. Never–and that means never–did we imagine Janeane would show up for the Wet Hot…prequel with more cosmetic work than a lot of reality stars. So, here’s the woman who called out the crap, completely and totally buying into the crap. Unacceptable. Janeane was hot because she didn’t care about it–or so we thought. She sold out to vanity, and believed the Hollywood BS about aging women.
