Absurdity #18- Are Bones Really Attractive?

absurd-ridiculously unreasonable, unsound, or incongruous

As anyone who has seen her on screen knows, Cate Blanchett has always been slender. But the 37-year-old actress’s gaunt appearance startled onlookers as she arrived at a benefit gala. With her collarbones protruding and looking painfully thin, the Lord Of The Rings star was barely recognisable as she walked down the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The stick-thin look was not helped by the Oscar-winner’s shock of scarlet make-up or her swept-up hair. An observer said: "Perhaps it was just an unfortunate trick of the light, but her shoulders and chest were all bony while her collarbones looked really prominent. But the observer said: "Although Cate was apparently in good spirits, she was definitely one of the skinniest celebrities there."

No wonder our kids are struggling with the 'desire to be thin' syndrome while following these wonderful role models!

Only time bones look good:
1. to an archaeologist and the discovery of an ancient tomb
2. maybe to premed students!
3....can you add to the list?

Dogs like bones, I guess.

no one should be that thin unless their is a medical reason or they are on drugs or totally mental. How can she think she is healthy. No way does it look like the same person. Ewwww.
