I apologize for thinking you were overreacting.

1. She's just aging. I'd like to still think it's ok for us women to do that
but I am not in favor of her husband's campaign.

7. None of us are gorgeious forever
... although I've managed to keep it going longer than most. :bounce:

How old is Maria, anyway? Late 40s? She'd look better if she let herself put on a little more weight.

21. Well she probably IS exhausted
I look like shit when I don't get sleep either. Otherswise, I'd like to think the aging process hasn't been to mean to my face yet. (The rest of me...well gravity is my enemy these days)

2. maybe she's learning some new tidbits about her nazi husband
maybe she's waking up, or having to try really really hard not to think.

that is a sick woman.

Still, this is what happens to all of us when youth fades.

9. I disagree
Im 52 years old...I like how I look..I look healthy, I am wrinkled and older but healthy..this kid Maria looks gaunt, and underfed..
Im happy and that has a lot to do with it....................
sorry but she looks bad..the kid needs to eat and if I were her mom I would get intervention FAST.

5. The most beautiful sound Arnold ever heard......
Edited on Sun Oct-05-03 10:31 PM by tishaLA
DIET, dammit!



seriously, though...you can tell it's really bad when you look at how much thinner her hair is now. That only happens when a woman has deprived herself of food for quite a while.

On edit: the top pic is from 2001, so it's not about "aging" IMHO--not that fast.

6. She's not aging
She's starving.

She's about 95lbs, and is often dizzy and light-headed.

Drudge had a side shot of her the other day at a press conference...she certainly looks like an anorexia victim.

Or someone you'd send a relief package to in a famine area.

10. No matter how we feel about Arnold
I think this is a low blow.

That's a terrible picture of Maria Shriver, who's certainly no conservative. I don't see the point of this besides to bash someone who's not even our "enemy."

13. Not a low blow
a normal picture of her.

It's from her press conference the other day...and all her photos look like that.

She is ill

She looks ill. She looks as if she's anorexic. I hope she's getting help.

17. I think smallprint summed it up
regardless of what Maria Shriver looks like, there's no reason to bash her using an off the cuff photo.

I'm sure if this was a picture of Hillary, there'd be twenty posts screeching about how this is awful.

Let's see if we can do without the hypocrisy.

12. Why do people always have to attack a woman for her looks?

Why not attack her for her actions? She certainly deserves some criticism there.

19. There's nothing in this thread
about Maria Shriver's actions. Only her looks.

To compare an airbrushed picture that was probably taken for publicity reasons and compare it an unplanned shot is disingenuous.

I wouldn't vote for Schwarzenegger if he were the last man running, but that's not what this thread has been about.

26. Lighting is everything
You could take a picture of Selma Hayek in that light or get the angle wrong and it will look the same. The pics are not airbrushed but that does NOT mean Drudge didn't tamper with them to do his pithy little story and news photographers are NOT fashion photographers.

Whether she is anorexic or not is her concern. If she is I wish her well and hope she handles it.

35. I don't consider the "Drudge Report"
to be the arbiter of what's news.

There are actually some of interested in things beyond DC and the California recall.

How would you feel if I plastered a bad picture of you on the Internet and invite the multitudes to speculate on your health, well being, marriage or sanity?

I maintain that this is a cheapshot.

Justify away.

43. You just don't have a clue at all, do you?
Look at what happened to her-she's not healthy. She's sick. You think everyone's attacking her looks.

You know what, just stop thinking that you know how people think when you can't read a post in its proper context, ok? Damn.

Edited on Sun Oct-05-03 10:46 PM by rocknation
She's worried sick--so sick she's not paying attention to her hair and makeup. This is the demeanor of someone who's "dimissed" sexual allegations against her spouse?

23. It's called a lack of make-up, hair stylist and a bad angle way too zoomed
People bashing Maria for her looks is sad.

I'd hope we'd be able to rise to the level of discourse that was about policy, law, and ethics. Not "OMG she's so skinnny!!11! She looks like daeth!?11!!!".

Shriver is not a rethug and not conservative. Yes she is supporting her husband but, yeah, it's her husband and I can respect that.

38. The two photos on the right
are of a very ill woman.



About eight years ago, I became very ill and lost down to 87 lbs. It was frightening even to me, to see what it had done to my face. Not only because of the sharp angles, by also because of the color and texture of my skin and the hollow looking eyes.

Now, eight years later w/a lot more weight and wrinkles, I look younger than I did then.

Maria is ill and I hope she gets help very soon.

42. I saw a clip from Oprah's show
(and I'm guessing there were make-up 'n hair people to assist her) - and my first reaction was 'my god! what's the matter w/ her?' She is painfully thin.

29. The issue is not whether or not she looks bad.

The issue is whether we should attack her for her looks, period. I think we can all agree that women who are in the political arena are targeted for their looks FAR more often than men, and that this is a hypocritical double standard. That is all I am trying to say.

Wasn't too awful fond of the Pelosi botox stuff yesterday either...poor Bella Abzug could never run these days. It's a shame too since she paved the way for so many others.

33. I don't think anyone is "attacking" her looks
She is a beautiful, beautiful woman. But she looks obviously unwell and that might be an indication that she is unhappy with her serial-groping husband. That's all. He is putting her through tremendous stress.

44. Like I've posted before she has all the signs of a tweaker.
Like in methamphetamine. I've been around that shit for 30 years and know what a tweaker looks like.
Protruding cheekbones, sunken eyes, cracked/wrinkled lips....
Poor woman needs to get away from Ahnold and get in rehab.

40. Two words folks.. "Lady Macbeth"
By all accounts shes every bit as power hungry, ambitious and competitive as her hubby. All other concerns in her life take a back seat to these appetites. As an LA anchorwoman, shes hardly some wilting flower- TV News is a tough biz. If she looks troubled and sleep deprived, its probably the ghost of Bobby taunting her when she sleeps rather than any doubts about herself or her husband's actions.

41. The first photo in your example was heavily re-touched.


I just casually re-worked this one, and she comes out looking better. I think for a 47 year old who has probably had more than her share of sun exposure, and has been under a tremendous amount of stress recently, she really is OK looking. Maybe she should get a face lift and come out looking like a lizard like Arnold does.

45. I find smashing on Maria's looks very disgushing
Even if she is anorexic, that is not reason to make fun of her. This is not any better than the Repukes that attack Clinton's daughter and her looks.

Sorry, but this is beneath the dignity of any normal person. It is Arnold that is running and Arnold that should looked at.

God forbid someone say something about his children's looks.

47. "You stupid *itch. I'm waiting for you. Come here."
Her husband, according to Wendy Leigh, said that to her in front of a gang of reporters, after he'd been booed by an audience at the 1980 Mr. Olympia contest. They shouted, 'Rigged. Rigged. Rigged.' Schwarz went running for the door, and lost Maria in the crowd. When he found her talking to reporters, that is what he screamed to her.

I suspect that her life is not that easy, and she's looking for something to control. Perhaps controlling her own body is all she has left.
