    Evangeline Lilly has posed half-naked and provocatively in so many promotional shots and clearly never had a problem with being objectified back when Lost put her on the map. The Esquire shoot she did back in the day, which features her in a retro two-piece with her ample backside turned toward the camera specifically comes to mind. So she sounds pretty hypocritical contesting her photo on the cover of WH, especially considering it’s a magazine that focuses on female physical fitness and routinely features its cover girls in very little clothing. Is she just pissed about the arrow? Would she not care if it wasn’t there? If the latter were true, she’d be an idiot indeed.

    She seems to really want to come across as relatable, substantial, strong, and intelligent. But instead, she appears dense and kind of up her own ass.

    This is the woman who apparently cried herself to sleep every night when she was younger, praying to God to please, please, please make her ugly so that men would stop ogling her and women would stop being jealous of her. How self-involved can you be?! There are millions of women in this world who are far more beautiful than you, Evangeline, but don’t ever get a chance to even remotely enjoy it, because they live in cultures that subject them to far more brutal hardships.

    Put a sock in it, Evangeline, and please fall off the radar again. You were never particularly relevant, and The Hobbit won’t make you any more so.
