Thora Birch and the case of the thinning bleaching uglifying actresses

I wonder, what happened between this...



...and this...



I know, you're not Hollywood-bankable if you're not thin and preferrably blonde. But this is preposterous.

Jennifer Connelly.
Minnie Driver.
Christina Ricci.
Now Thora.

Next thing you know, Scarlett Johannson will have thighs like my wrist. Wait a minute... She was a redhead... now she's blond.

Yeah, the crack skank look really doesn't do a thing for me. I much preferred Lohan when she looked like a human being, she had the hotness then but now - ew.

It looks to me that Thora just got in shape. She looks tone, and healthy. I agree that the blonde hair is no good, but worse things have happened.

Healthy? I guess if you consider that guy in that movie Powder to be healthy, then she's healthy.

I would need a better "today" picture to say one way or another if she looks worse today and she did back then since the "then" picture is just a head shot.

i'll admit i liked the thora of yesteryear.

but i do wonder, do we say this because she simply looks freakish or because she isn't what we're used to?

plump. what a fun word.

alas, renee and thora need to have a pie eating contest. if they gain 10 pounds, they win.

As a Floridian, I'm used to seeing women with bronze skin. That's what I prefer. Being thin is ok, being anorexic is not.

Well, ignoring the watermarking she looks a lot better (IMO) in this shot:


I don't necessarily prefer the new look to the old, but I don't think it's anywhere near as bad a change as Lohan's.

I think she looks great in the shot here: http://us.imdb.com/gallery/granitz/3...Birch,%20Thora (It wouldn't let me get the photo's location)

She still looks good. What a gorgeous face she has. And the creamy skin. And those lucious...oh sorry. It's my scientific opinion that she's beautiful.

That's definitely the worst picture in the set. Here's a handful from the same place off her site:

Here's some more from the Cinderella Man premier which was what a week ago?

http://thora.org/images6C/cinderellaman.htm

Now the last movie I saw her in was Ghost World, even if it was filmed in 2000(when it came out) that'd make her 18. In these pics she's 23. I think she's definitely thin, but not too thin(borderline though). She's still got her cheeks, her arms don't look like twiggs, and she's definitely not reverted to a training bra. Don't much care for the blonde hair on her though.

I can't understand how a redhead would want to go blonde. First Laura Prepon then Lindsay Lohan now this...

Is it just me or is she photoshopped onto that walkway? Something doesn't look quite right about it.
