Skin flicks?

Skin flicks? Close. Ok, not really. Not at all. Someone had a little too much time on their hands and deconstructed a bevy of actors and their skin conditions.

Interesting site, although, as with much of the web, it's much, much more information than you really want.

I can't believe they didn't have any mention of Tina Fey's facial scar.

Also related: skinema.com -"The Dermatology in the Cinema web site". One of their categories is "skin conditions used to convey evil", heh.
I also just love this article about psoriasis in literature.
Scars are neat.

Oh no, I can't believe I just did that. Damn damn damn. I award myself the great shiny badge of stoopidness.

That's OK, Catch. You were obviously fooled by the mole.

Frack! Preview, not post.

My friend and I thought it was hilarious when we saw the Goldmember trailer with "the Mole", with Fred Savage having a big dark mole just above his left lip. Why? Because the trailer was followed by Minority Report, where Peter Stormare's nurse has ... a big dark mole just above her left lip, generating for that audience a strange irony.

Why oh why is there no mention of the king of disturbingly skinned actors, Jurgen Prochnow?

Schneller! Schneller!

By the way, I didn't mean "skinned" in the sense that I'd like to flay Jurgen alive and make a grisly Jurgen suit that I could wear around town to premieres, fooling the paparazzi. Of course not. Not even a little bit.
