It’s not such a “Beautiful Life” right now for supermodel Elle MacPherson. It seemed like a no-brainer casting Elle as “Claudia,” an aging-model-turned-owner of the fictitious Focus Models Agency. But now the show's producers are worried. Why? Because while Elle looks the part, she lacks acting chops. So much so that the show’s producers, including Ashton Kutcher, are supposedly scrambling to hire acting coaches to work with her and a few other models who aren't nailing their parts. And they don't have long to mess around—the show’s premiere is on September 16. Oddly enough, the one person producers don’t have to worry about, according to the Daily News, is Mischa Barton. Even fresh from her mega meltdown, the show’s execs are thrilled with her performance when compared to the others. [NY Daily News]
We’ll have to wait until next month to see if Elle can learn to act like a model. The results will no doubt be hilarious. Until then, here are some clips of other models who should leave their acting dreams on the runway.
