You know how they say the screen adds 10 lbs?.... well it also decreases attractiveness by about 25%. There's a LOT of actresses who look average or normal on screen who look really good in person. If you actually saw Lachman in public, you'd probably think she was hot as s**t. I remember my roommate from college was at a modeling party in L.A., and he came back absolutely drooling over Natasha Henstrige who also happened to be there (this was shortly after 'Species' was released). Couldn't friggin' shut up about her!!! Said she was utterly the hottest thing he's ever seen in his life in person. On screen she looked hot, but you couldn't fully appreciate and gauge just how attractive she was unless you saw her in person. Immediately after college I worked at the Boca Raton Resort. One day I had the pleasure of escorting Marisa Tomei arm-in-arm from one side of the hotel to the other to find the coffee shop (she was cool as hell BTW). She looked between okay and cute on screen, but in person she was incredibly adorable, as in- her on screen looks weren't really my type, but in person I was easily attracted to her.
