Oh, yes, we went there. Actually, Phillip Swan of TVPredictions went there.
In a list of worst looking celebrities in HDTV, Rosie O'Donnell and Britney Spears led the hideous way.
Don't be shocked by the latter. Have you not seen any Britney Spears pictures recently? Now imagine those images in crystal clear, high definition ... exactly.
According to Swann,"no one enjoys the view of Rosie in high-def" and adds that she "looks like she uses a Brillo pad" to wash her face.
Teri Hatcher topped last year's roundup but falls to number three because "she's so thin that she could pass as a mother of four ... in Darfur."
Others on Swann's hit list include Spears ("Mrs. Kevin Federline is just 24, but she looks 34 in HDTV"), Burt Reynolds, whose "face looks like it's been Scotch taped back in place," and Madonna, who he says has cheeks that are "more caved in than a West Virginia coal mine."
Of course, some celebrities actually maintain their good looks under the spotlight of HDTV. Scarlett Johansson came to mind for Swann, for example.
Other television hotties making the cut were:
- Eva Longoria
- Ben Affleck
- Martha Stewart
No, really, Martha Stewart.
