Flowchart Friday, Wednesday Edition: Are Beautiful Women Funny?
Journalist and blogger Nikke Finke threw some serious shade Julie Bowen’s way on Sunday while live-blogging the Emmy’s on her showbiz website, Deadline.com. Commenting on Bowen’s Emmy win for her comedic work on Modern Family, Finke said “[b]eautiful actresses are not funny. They don’t know how to do comedy. … Only women who grew up ugly and stayed ugly, or through plastic surgery became beautiful, can pull off sitcoms or standups. Bowen isn’t a comedienne just like Brooke Shields wasn’t and a zillion more. Because it’s all about emotional pain and humiliation and rising above both by making people laugh with you instead of at you.”
Hear that, ladies? If you’re pretty, you’re not funny. Because beautiful women never experience emotional pain or humiliation. Still confused? Allow me to help you out with that (click to enlarge):
