Carson Daly OMG.

I'm sure everyone has seen this ghastly picture of Carson Daly circulating on the internet for the past week, but I couldn't resist adding it to the junkette archives. Wow, he looks scary. He looks like a TOTALLY DIFFERENT PERSON than the dorky TRL host of past. I'm sure this is probably sexist of me (sorry), but I really have a hard time understanding men who are anorexic or otherwise plagued by an eating disorder. It's just that the societal pressures on women to be skinny seems to be so much more acute than the pressure on men, so I am always doubly taken aback when the-person-otherwise-known-as-Carson-Daly shows up looking like THIS. I just hope this is one of those cases where the picture or the angle makes him seem skinnier than he really is. Or perhaps he's just naturally this skinny? I doubt it. I keep looking up at his picture as I type and, well, OMG.

I'm actually wondering if he's ill with something other than an eating disorder.

He's certainly not the first or even only man who's gotten scary skinny over the years. See e.g., Karl Lagerfeld, Kenny Rogers, Matthew Perry (I can't remember if it was before or after he admitted he was addicted to something, but see any photos circa 2000).

Matthew Perry's weight gain and weight loss always seemed to coincide with his addictions, so I think that one is explained away.

I think that the clearest example of a manorexic would be Ryan Seacrest. Who also seems to have an affinity for the Botox needle.

Really? I never noticed Seacrest to be particularly skinny or Botoxed.

This is just...weird. As much as I want to write it off as a freak camera angle or something, I can't. He looks like a bobble head doll.

Look at photos of Seacrest from last season of AI and the season before. There are some very real differences in his face--looks to me like he has had something done.

As for Daly, I feel like he is another one of those weight fluctuators. I have to imagine that the pressures to look good for men on television, especially when you aren't specifically sought after for your particular acting talent, are quite real. Much of their career is really based on physical appearance.

To respond to the above comment. The same thing just happened to me. Turned the TV on and I didn't even believe it was him until I search online. What happened. I thought he was way hotter before!

Not, even going to lie...I swear Diddo on the last two comments. Did you notice that his desk is on the other side of guests to avoid mouth area... he looks to have loss movement on the right. Very sad and dissapointing. The intial comment re: society and how much man-orexia go against all "norms", very interesting point. I pray that he is able to find happiness.

It's not necessarily about societal norm pressures. Often times you'll find that anorexia isn't about the food or being thin. It's about trying to find some form of control in your life when everything else is, well, out of control.

Well, this is more than a little sexist, but when I see a man who acts "normal" with apparent anorexia, my first inclination is to assume drugs or disease. And CD seems pretty normal; not gay in any obvious (or at least stereotypical) way or seemingly prone to OCDs. I wonder if the video effects that make his show unwatchable are partly to draw attention from this problem.
