^I agree with all of you. I respect her a lot and I love how she's involved in all of these great causes.

Now this and I think she's one of the only people who could do it without seeming to be seeking attention from it.

AnnaLynne is naturally pretty. She doesn't need as much make up as she usually wears. I adore her curly hair!!! She needs to keep it that way.

Stars without makeup: Plain Janes or plain brilliant?

Quote:
After being photographed without makeup while in Vancouver last month, candid shots of AnnaLynne McCord hit the Web, with with one site noting: "Her facial blemishes were completely visible."

"This is newsworthy? Me not wearing makeup," the "90210" actress recently told CNN.

"The more I thought about it, the more upset I got."

And so, one week later, in her New York hotel room, a barefaced McCord snapped a photo of herself and posted it on Twitter for her more than 140,000 followers to see.

In the past few months, stars such as Bethenny Frankel and Jennifer Love Hewitt have also shared fresh-faced pictures of themselves via their Twitter accounts. Meanwhile, actresses Zooey Deschanel and Paula Patton, among others, posed without makeup for People's Most Beautiful issue.

And we can't help but look.

"It's human nature," said Brian Solis, a principle media analyst at Altimeter Group. "There's a level of mystique to celebrity, and social media can either add to it or take away from it." More celebrities are realizing this and jumping on the au naturel-twitpic bandwagon, he added.
"A new generation of publicists are working with their (celebrity clients) to build this much more everyday relationship with fans, where social media is a channel that keeps them relevant in between the things they do that actually make them a celebrity," Solis said. "(Publicists) will encourage celebrities to share more natural shots, but not completely unmade-up shots."
For McCord, who said posting the photo was her reaction to society's unrealistic standards of beauty, the act was just "spur of the moment. ... I wasn't even wearing Chapstick."
"I was angry," she said. "There are days where you just want to scream something to the world, and with social networking we can."
But it's not just the pictures celebrities share via social media that attract attention. On Tuesday, Us Weekly published the headline, "Beyonce Wears shorts, almost no makeup at Broadway show," along with a picture of the fresh-faced singer.
Demi Lovato received similar attention last month when E! praised the 19-year-old for tweeting a photo along with the message: "No makeup."
People are either looking at these photos to see a celebrity's imperfections, to make them feel better about themselves, or because they're a fan and they find it endearing, Solis said. But just like fans have different reasons for looking at such photos, he added, celebrities have different reasons for posting them.
While some people in the public eye might share a makeup-free photo to "build a more natural relationship with their community," others might be blindly oversharing or merely pretending to foster a more organic relationship with fans, Solis said.
It loses something when the celebrity is posing in a beautiful setting with their hair done, and hoping it gets picked up by a magazine, he said, adding, "Like, 'here's a staged shot of me looking natural.' "
McCord said she was on Skype when she decided to post a picture of herself without makeup.
"I was looking at (myself in the inset) and I was like, 'You know what, I don't care ... that I have little dots on my face sometimes,' " she said.
Unsure, at the time, of how people would react to the photo, she added, "I thought, 'You can excommunicate me from Hollywood if that's what having blemishes does.' "
Unlike the responses elicited by the candid photographs taken of McCord in Vancouver, fans and media outlets have praised the actress for her post.
"I was just reacting," she said. "But because my reaction was to own what (the tabloids) were saying about me, I took the wind out of their sails, so to speak."
McCord said many of her followers have thanked her via Twitter, and that one follower responded by posting her own makeup-free picture to the social networking site.
"I wake up and I go to work and I have a whole makeup and hair team make me up the way people usually see me," McCord said. "I'm like a little doll. ... I don't try, in my personal life, to live up to that. ... I'm very au naturel. I like to let my hair down. Let my skin breathe."
And the actress hasn't gone back.
Sporting only foundation and Burt's Bees tinted lip color of late, she's named her new makeup regime "the Dominic Purcell-look," after her boyfriend, who she said encourages her to flaunt her natural beauty.
Whether more celebrities will follow suit in their daily lives remains to be seen. But, as Solis said, as long as people are receptive to such photos, you can bet the stars will be tweeting.

Annalynne In Israel

Quote:
Sitting with AnnaLynne McCord at Jerusalem’s Inbal Hotel on Sunday morning, the blond actress comes off as a regular person with some well thought-out opinions, and not as a Hollywood ‘celebrity’ one would expect. McCord is currently known for her role as Naomi Clark in CW’s 90210.

While her manager insists that she eat her omelet, McCord is excited to share her experience and perspective of Israel in what is her first trip to the country with the organization “America’s Voices in Israel.” McCord explains that she was not afraid to travel to Israel and was excited to meet the people who experience the country every day.

“I’ve heard a lot against Israel back home, but I always knew there was a lot more to this country than what I’ve read and seen in the news,” McCord told me.

“The first question that I’ve always thought about in regard to the conflict here is how much of it is a holy war?” McCord explains that she knows the Biblical history of the region well, having “grown up with the Bible” and believes that there is “no room for the world to judge Israel or anyone in this conflict.”

“I believe there are always three sides to the story — your side, my side and the truth,” said McCord. “Until you actually live in someone else’s shoes, you can never judge.”

“With all that negative coverage about Israel, I was amazed by the resilience, human spirit and optimism that people here have facing daily turmoil. You have to come see Israel for yourself to understand this — that people can still have an amazing existence, with love and patriotism, despite all the odds.”

The one characteristic that McCord says she particularly likes about Israelis is that “they don’t care what you think, what the world thinks. As an actress, I definitely relate to that because people write mean and nice things about me all the time. I do what I have to do, no matter what the critics say. Israel does the same.”

McCord and her acting colleagues, among them Omar Epps (House), Zach Roerig (Vampire Diaries) Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds), Mekhi Pfifer (8 Mile, ER), Paul Johansson (One Tree Hill), Holt McCallany (Lights Out), Holly Robinson Peete (Hangin’ Out With Mr. Cooper) were particularly impressed with Israel’s state-of-the-art facilities for special needs/disabled children.

Peete wrote that “this country is so ahead of ours when it comes to caring for children with autism…I’m inspired.”

The itinerary for the trip included visits to Jerusalem’s Meshi, a rehabilitation center and school for 196 children with severe neurological and muscular disabilities who receive the world’s top treatments, and the Na’Alagat Center in Old Jaffa, a theater group made up of deaf and blind people who are Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Druze.

For others, the trip reinforced the spiritual dimensions of the Holy Land. Omar Epps, on his second visit to Israel with America’s Voices in Israel, explained that it was the country’s “rich history, culture, people and energies” that drew him back. “For me personally, the spiritual significance of this place hits me to the core. The fact that the world’s three ancient religions meet in one place makes the holiness of this land so unique,” said Epps. “I’m bringing my kids here next time to experience this land together with my wife.”

Even the Dead Sea took on religious significance when Mekhi Phifer tweeted jokingly before the group’s descent to the world’s lowest elevation on land that he “might even get baptized in the Dead Sea.”

Visits and tours to Masada, the Golan Heights, Haifa,Tel Aviv, Jerusalem’s Old City and Christian sites including Mount of Beatitudes, Tabgha, Geinosar and the Church of Holy Sepulchre in the Old City of Jerusalem also left strong impressions on the stars.

“I would love to come back here to film a movie someday,” said Holt McCallany, Hollywood actor, writer and producer, who starred in Fox’s Lights Out.” It was amazing to be able visualize all these stories and settings,” he told me.

At the farewell dinner, Mekhi Phifer thanked Rabbi Irwin Katsof, director of America’s Voices in Israel for organizing the week-long trip from May 7-13. “It’s been a privilege to be enveloped in your culture,” Phifer emotionally told Katsof.

Rabbi Irwin Katsof has been involved in bringing missions to Israel for the past 20 years and today directs America’s Voices in Israel which was founded in 2001 and is part of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. He is a businessman, educator, author and successful entrepreneur, who has brought the likes of Starbucks founder, Howard Schultz and Lady Margaret Thatcher, and others, to Israel.

Katsof explains that his missions entail a no-strings attached rule. “The groups are presented with the facts, and have the opportunity to meet with Israelis across the spectrum. They come to their own conclusions about the country.”

May’s trip was a cooperative effort between the Ministry of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs, Ministries of Tourism and Foreign Affairs, El Al Israel Airlines and the Jerusalem Inbal Hotel.

For Israelis who caught a glimpse of the stars, excitement ensued as requests for photos and autographs were readily answered by the actors and actresses. The more well-known of the group, AnnaLynne McCord and Zach Roerig, found themselves posing with countless star-struck teenagers at Jerusalem’s Inbal Hotel.

“It’s a bit overwhelming,” said Zach Roerig. “I never expected so many fans in this region of the world.”

AnnaLynne McCord stopped traffic in Los Angeles this morning as she headed out for coffee wearing nearly every colour of the rainbow.
The 90210 actress grabbed a coffee sporting an eye-popping pair of yellow jeans that were sure to perk up even the most bleary-eyed customer stopping for a caffeine fix.
But while others may have chosen to pair the bold trousers with a plain white top, AnnaLynne opted for a patterned floral blouse, voluminous multi-coloured scarf and a green tote bag.
Later in the day AnnaLynne must have had second thoughts about her clashing get-up as she was spotted out with a friend in a red maxi dress and crochet cardigan.
