Hollywood is amazing. While many companies have been trying to get people to work cross-divisionally (as in “hey, you do HR, now you’re accounting as well!”) for no reason whatsoever, Hollywood has been doing it for years. Decades even. The general train of thought is like this: if people get paid to get people to look at them for a long period of time, it surely must mean that people like looking at them. People also like looking at movies. Let’s get those people that people like looking at to star in movies so people will automatically like looking at the movie we’re making, even though the plot is thinner than my last bowel movement. Makes sense? Of course it doesn’t, but it makes everybody involved hugely rich!
While there might be quite some cringe-factor involved in movies that cast their actors according to this principle, it might be fun to list out some of those models that can’t act their way out of a plastic bag. Hell, it’ll be more fun than binge-watching all the movies these people starred in. Trust me.
Having starred in Zoolander and Love Actually, this German model gave up on acting in 2003, after a very short acting career. She might pick it up again, but don’t count on it.
Still acting today, Carmen is mostly associated with thin comedies that mostly rely on nudity to attract a part of the 18-30 yo male demographic. She starred in true Oscar-quality movies like Scary Movie and Meet The Spartans.
