Claire Danes haunts my dreams

Macleans Newsmakers

Dear Macleans,

I’m not a very frequent visitor to your website, but even I’ve begun to be disturbed by this photo of Claire Danes, which has appeared on every article page for over six months now. It draws attention to the fact that your “weekly newsmakers” photo gallery hasn’t been updated since August.

More importantly though, she’s starting to really creep me out. It’s kind of a mindless expression in the first place, as if she was just turned into a zombie or something, but with none of those rotting scabs and messed-up hairdos they all have.

If you don’t intend to update it (Nissan not paying the bills any more?), could you delete it from your template, along with all the other stuff that’s gathering dust on a virtual shelf somewhere?

Thank you.

    I couldn’t disagree more. One of the things I love about Claire Danes is the very *real* looks she gives to the camera. She doesn’t just smile mindlessly and flash lots of teeth, a la Julia Roberts. She’s much “cooler” to the photographers. You may think Zombie. I find her look refreshingly low-key and intelligent.
