...Las Vegas. Enough supermodels, lets do some real women, at least to the the extent that actresses can be real women. Today, for Rule 5 Saturday, I chosen to feature the women of CSI: Las Vegas, the long running crime scene drama best known for showing laboratories in odd lighting, and promulgating the belief that a DNA profile can be run in 5 minutes...
Our first 'Woman of CSI' is Marg Helgenberger, who portrayed Catherine Willows from its inception in 2000 to 2012. Aside from CSI, which must have occupied much of her life for the past 12 years, she has a pretty impressive list of TV and film roles including such classics as "Frame by Frame" (NSFW link).
She started as a TV weather girl and professional meat packer (seriously) so acting must have seemed a dream job.
According to Wikipedia:
She describes herself as being overweight while growing up, with a prominent gap between her teeth.By her twenties, neither her wisdom teeth nor braces had appreciably helped, and Fox said "forget it."OK, I see it now.
Elizabeth Shue is an old hand in the acting business, starting as the original Karate Kid's squeeze in 1984, including such fine pieces as "Molly" (1999) (NSFW link). Hey, a girls gotta eat, and choking logs isn't really a good option.
