Father god, this is so cute I may have to leave the room. (Also... Vic Mignogna's singing voice is really sweet.)

See you in September, Benny baby.
[The quote is yanked from elsewhere.]

I have been pondering for a couple weeks now (actually, I ponder this a lot, but it's been particularly on my mind recently) a big WHY I find rattling around in my head. To wit:

Why do I find this:

Due in theaters in summer 2010, "Airbender" has already begun to face a bit of controversy over the casting of white actors like Rathbone, Ringer and McCartney to play Asian characters — a concern the actor was quick to dismiss. "I think it's one of those things where I pull my hair up, shave the sides, and I definitely need a tan," he said of the transformation he'll go through to look more like Sokka. "It's one of those things where, hopefully, the audience will suspend disbelief a little bit."

...more offensive, at a visceral, gut level, than Angelina Jolie playing a biracial black/white woman in "A Mighty Heart"?????

It's so simple, really.

Celebrities are a dime a dozen, they are not role models. They are not obligated to make you happy or sad about their private lives. They are not obligated to teach you or your family about a GOD DAMN thing. If anything our lack of role models in day to day life is harming all of us. If you are looking to a TV Screen or a Movie Screen or a Band to be good role models for your children than you are backing out of being that role model yourself.

Can we get this speech on prime time? Please? Loudly and often? Because people are slacking.

Sweet Father GOD, Hollywood, stop doing whatever you're doing to Natalie Portman!

Natalie! Do not take your clothes off ever again!

All right people -- I'm all for the "let's accept a variety of body types" and "if it's mean to mock the overweight it's also mean to suggest the very thin are not 'real women,'" but you know what? There are LIMITS. And this is not mockery, it is concern. I am freaking disturbed.

I know women who have to have their size-2 pants taken in and struggle to make it to ninety pounds at Thanksgiving, and they do not look like this. Kirsten Dunst does not look like this. Dieta Von Tesse with her, what, 17-inch waist? Does not look like this. Keira Knightley does not look like this -- I've seen her unretouched photographs, and you know what? Keira has vadge arms. (Seriously, no one would bother that poor girl at all or spread a single stupid rumor about her if she had bigger breasts.) Evan Rachel Wood is a teeny weeny little hipless thing and SHE does not look like this. Natalie Portman herself did not look like this for most of her career! Baby had more back when she was 12!!


Natalie! Your ribs are showing! All of them! You are scarier than Lara Flynn Boyle! It is one thing to look at a woman from the front and see one or two of those lower ribs framing a concave tummy -- I'd prefer a not-concave tummy, but trend is trend... but -- NATALIE! Your ribs are showing from the back! Even when you are arching BACKWARD. From your neck to your kidneys, I can see all of them, I can see the pearlike structure of your entire ribcage, you are like a science project! Do not want! DO NOT stand all posed and arched and statuelike pointing your toes on my screen like that was okay! Your prison stint in "V for Vendetta?" That was fiction, Natalie. You can give up the refugee shtick now please thank you? Oh my god. I thought I was disturbed by your sticklike limbs when I couldn't see under your prison garb, but baby, damn.

Nat, your bum is quite pretty (although Evan Rachel Wood's is cuter, possibly due to digital enhancment), and I appreciate that you do actually have thighs (I had wondered), and I support your decision to branch out artistically or whatever, (and I am loving the throaty voice, by the way) but you leave your shirt on until this is remedied!

Natalie, sweetheart, your talent and cuteness adds too much to my world for me to be okay with you frightening me like this. EAT. SOME. FOOD.
