MBP of the Week: Star magazine

The latest issue of Star has a cover feature called “Stars Without Makeup.” So if you wanna see a few zits on Katherine Heigl’s forehead or satchels under Gwyneth Paltrow’s eyes, have at it.

Me? Just give me a good ol’ Misidentified Black Person and I’m satisfied.

Begorra... here’s one on page 66!

The copy says it’s Joy Bryant, who co-starred with 50 Cent in “Get Rich or Die Tryin’.” But that’s not Joy Bryant in the picture.

That’s Miss Dominican Hotness herself, Zoe Saldana.

Here’s Joy Bryant in the photo to the right. (Wow. Gorgeous. I guess I have to go rent “Get Rich or Die Tryin’ ” now.)

I suppose Zoe Saldana won’t complain about the error. If you’re gonna be held up to ridicule in the pages of Star magazine... better they call you by some other chick’s name.

(Thanks for the tip, Donna.)

At least they didn't confuse Zoe with Jada.

Ooops! I saw that and thought, "Wow, Joy Bryant really DOES look different withouther make-up!"

Bklyn6: I used to confuse Zoe with Sanaa Lathan.

Joy is a beautiful and talented young lady, but her best work on film is probably ANTWONE FISHER, co-starring with the also cute Derek Luke

^ Dang. I don't remember her in that.

Dave, not sure if this counts as an MBP, but the Los Angeles Times ran the following correction last week:

TV This Week: The highlights on the TV This Week page in today's Calendar say Friday's coverage of the "Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular" on CBS will be hosted by Colin Ferguson. The program will be hosted by Craig Ferguson.


Unclear if the Times confused Craig with this guy:

or this guy:

Colin Ferguson? Now that would've been some fireworks!

^Fo' real!

It's not hard to miss that Joy Bryant was in Atwone Fisher, because Salli Richardson's hotness usually blocks out all other things.

"It's a film about a guy dealing with family issues? I spent the whole time wondering why Denzel wasn't hittin' that"

(Just kidding; AF is a terrific movie)

Joy, Zoe ...both fine ...(Saldana still looks okay w/o makeoup IMO). I'll take both of 'em.

(Saldana still looks okay w/o makeoup IMO)
