So does the vag match the enormous head? That’s what I want to know
Is she Dino DeLaurentis’ daughter?
Papercuts! — I often wonder that.
She does live in Los Angeles, it seems. (She shops in Bristol Farms of Beverly Hills on her show).
I would love to be one of the people she invites over at the end of the half-hour.
Okay, according to the imdb, she is the granddaughter of Dino Delaurentis.
She’s also married. BLAST!
this bitch has a huge head… and a pencil neck.
Yeah shes married to some insanely good looking guy. I love watching her show. I have no idea what she cooks, I just enjoy her tight blouses and the orgasmic resposnes to anything she tastes.
This big head thing seems to be a trend. I would add Jessica Simpson, Nicole Ritchie, and the Olsen twins to this category. I am just guessing here, but I think it has something to do with anorexia. Or they just want to look like a girl from a Steve Madden ad. Either way I find this Bobble-head Doll trend quite creepy. Hmm, but judging from the male comments I guess some of you find that sexy! Yikes!
She has that lollipop look of like Mischa Barton, Nicole Richie, Natalie Portman and the lot of ‘em whose heads look way to big for their bodies … and if this chic cooks for a living, does she not know how to eat? I mean hell, she looks like a good meal wouldn’t hurt her.
A) Thanks for getting me in trouble at my new job – I was laughing so hard
B) At first glance I thought it was a still from X-files
Eddiebosox — I agree. i love when she bites a piece of bread and her face seems to explode with joy. Or when she pronounces words like “ciabatta” and “prosciuttio”
This obsession with head size has been a part of Hollywood lore since the beginning of movies “ easily for sixty or seventy years. It’s called The Big Head Theory of Casting and holds that successful actors’ proportions are different; they are often physically tiny/smallish people with freakishly large heads. The audience’s attention is naturally drawn to big eyes and full lips ” the repositories, in close-up, of an actor’s emotion and articulation. Pretty much any actor worth his salt has a huge head that somehow plays well on celluloid, it makes them very photogenic. It’s something that the audience usually isn’t aware of until someone with a regular/small head comes into frame and then it is really obvious.
Old Hollywooders with big heads included Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart and Spencer Tracy. Today’s group includes Ben Affleck, Russell Crowe, Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, Daniel Day Lewis (his head is as big as his chest!), William Shatner, Jason Patrick, Mel Gibson and Dennis Hopper (aka the human bobble-head). I read an interview with Rob Reiner several years ago, where he talked about his and Billy Crystal’s obsession with big noggins.
Many of today’s actresses look like they have large heads because they are so emaciated that the head simply appears disproportionate. The look is called the “Lollipop.” The most famous is Vanna White. I know, I know “ not an actress. But legend has it that Merv Griffin had his selection for “Wheel of Fortune” narrowed down to two women and couldn’t make a decision. He went with Vanna because she had the larger cranium. He knew all about TBHTofC from his days as an actor in the old studio system!
I have a huge head, but it ain’t because my body is disproportionately small–I just have a huge head that holds lots of braaaaaaaaains. So maybe I’m meant to be an actor! There has to be some reason why I can’t wear normal women’s hats….
Giada looks like those creepy greeting cards in the grocery stores of cats and dogs with huge eyes. Blech. (yes, I’m just jealous of her beauty.)
FYI: she’s about 5’1″ – tiny dancer
There’s something else about her show that my girlfriend pointed-out to me. The camera is constantly zooming in on her hands. I mean, much more so than any other cooking show. It’s like hand-porn, I swear. Even when she’s washing her hands, there’s a zoom-in of her sensually rubbing her hands together. See for yourself.
I’m pretty sure she’s about 3 feet tall. I think her kitchen is definately miniaturized. We always refer to her as The Gnome. When we see her on, one of us shouts, “The Gnome’s on!”
We’re supposed to believe someone that thin cooks food anyone wants to eat? Make mine Nigella!
She needs to whip up a little “creme de lesbiana” with that 40oz party girl Rachel Ray. If you smell what I’m cookin.
I’m pretty sure the only thing she eats is the nibble of food she tastes at the end of the show every week. It always has a “rich, nutty flavor”. I swear- evrything she cooks tastes like nuts to her……
She also sort of looks like she is doing a T-Rex impersonation in this pic.
Are there any SFW sites with pics of her? Maybe it’s just a bad shot.
Cripes, I’ve always said she looks like a Q-tip. Along with Penelope Cruz and Eva Longoria.
Their bodies are just too tiny!
Plus another thing that bugs me is how she speaks PERFECT english, then says something like “mozzarella” and suddenly she becomes Paul Sorvino in GoodFellas. Come on, we know from your name you’re italian… give it a rest, Q-Tip.
Pixchik, thank you for the history of the bobble-head. Very informative.
But Jess, if you have a big head with big brains inside, it does not necessarily make you a good actor. At least not according to the theory of Michaelangelo Antonioni, who felt that intellectuals make worse actors. So combining Antonioni’s theory with Rob Reiner’s, I guess you have to have a big head, but CANNOT have big brains filling this massive cranium in order to be a great actor or screen personality. I am sure you all can come up with numerous examples of this phenomenon.
Fascinating history from Pixchik. I’d like to add to that. Big heads notwithstanding, I have a theory that A-list actors are almost exclusively found to be FOUR-FIFTHS the size of your average human being, so that they don’t look odd when their features are splashed across the silver screen. I’ve interviewed a great many of them and so far only a handful — Geena Davis, Jeff Goldblum, Tim Robbins, Liam Neeson for example — have proved exceptions to this rule. Think of this next time you meet an aspiring actor; are they petite enough to make it?
All these comments are dead-on, as is the topic itself, which is what started me laughing. You all have me cracking-up here, thanks! Interesting about Hollywood’s history of choosing lollipops on purpose, too.
Darn it, I stumbled upon this site while googling to uncover a little more about BratCamp, which I caught the last five minutes of tonight, and the admin’s suggested nicknames for camp counselors had me in stitches too.
Nice work, one and all, I may be hooked.
My sister and I have been calling her “The Everyday Bobblehead” since the show started.
I don’t know how that bitch stays so skinny when she drinks olive oil everyday and mows down on platter-sized portions of pasta – the girl must have hollow legs! (Yes, that’s the stench of bitter envy in the air. And yes, it’s coming from me.)
She over acts and she is not only annoying but creepy , I wont watch food network if she is on .
gdl is a snaggletooth bobblehead and michael chiarella is queer as a three dollar bill.
