Does anyone else find Peggy Olson/Elizabeth Moss REALLY hard to look at?
She looks like the love child of Rodney Dangerfield and a hard-boiled egg.
More so with every season.
Her outdated hair and frumpy clothes don't help, either, and I really don't buy her as the female version of Don.
Sometimes she looks pretty, sometimes meh, but I don't think she's ugly. I love how she plays Peggy.
Most of the men are hard to look at, too. So, no, not really.
I think she's one of the coolest characters on there.
I thought she was really pretty on West Wing, but I have never found her attractive on Mad Men.
She is NOT pretty, but she's a terrific actress.
I don't find her hard to look at, but she is unbelievably dull. Her storylines are a waste of time.
that whole show is too boring to watch
Is it true she a Scientologist?
At least she got rid of that flaccid dick ponytail.
I recently watched Top of the Lake. Moss has interesting looks; she is sometimes quite striking and sometimes quite plain. It didn't really matter because she really can act and that's all I care about.
she is visual disquieting
Yes, Elisabeth Moss is a Scientologist.
She looked the best she ever did in Girl, Interrupted.
She is quite beautiful in some scenes in TOP OF THE LAKE. That cinematographer understood how to light her. Also, Campion told Moss to lower her voice which added to her sexiness.
I thought she was very Jodie Foster-ish in the show. In a good way.
She looks like an egg!
Not pretty and they cast her as a Norwegian!
I didn't until I realized.
She looks like Gillian Anderson's gawky little sister.
She looks a bit like Linda Evangelista sometimes.
... in egg form!
R21 - she and Gillian could play relatives.
Evangelista's wide spaced, almost buggy eyes and penis nose. Linda's nose ruined her. If she was short, she'd be the okay looking girl with interesting eyes. Still, anyone is better than Peggy. It's like she looks like she would have a retarded kid. Her cheekbones are set so low. Proof Weiner grew up in a middle class Jewish community who just doesn't get "white' people.
too much titty. makes her look cowish. and her acting isn't that compelling.
She's horrible. So hard on the eyes.
R26 - Are you thinking of Christina Hendricks who plays Joan.?
Elisabeth isn't lacking in boobs, but she's not huge there either.
R25- Retarded kid? Weiner remark? Do you get "dreck" people such as yourself?
I've always thought she looks like a nutcracker.
More like a soft boiled egg.
r29 - Yes, r25 is an idiot, but what are "dreck" people?
She's hard to watch. I don't get the Peggy love some viewers have. She's plain in hair and dress. Mousey and timid. I know she's supposed to be the gawky secretary who works herself up the Madison Ave ladder. Her vocal delivery is odd sometimes w/ her mouth open and tongue trying to get words out slowly. If Don EVER sleeps w/ her, drunken or sober, I will retch.
R33 - She's no longer mousey and timid.
r34 - She is still awkward and frumpy. It's impossible to buy her as an ad exec.
She is cute but is not pretty. Good actress though.
She played that girl who had the burned face in 'Girl, Interrupted'
She's ugly but not as ugly as that fat facer Tiffani Amber Thiessen.
I don't find her attractive at all. Having said that, I don't think she's hard to look at.
Christ, it's not like she's that Lens Dunham creature.
Does anyone else think that in another 10-15 years Tiffani Amber Thiessen will look like that woman from Dance Moms?
She's like a beautiful Cubist painting.
She's still a Scientologist, so that's a deal breaker.
"that whole show is too boring to watch"
I don't find it boring, but the producers have cleverly devised a way to create an entire series of people walking into and out of rooms, and taking off their coats. And putting them back on.
I thought she was pretty in West Wing. And the first 1-2 seasons of Mad Men. Once they gave her this current frumpy hairstyle:forget it. ONLY time I think she's looked good on MM is last season when she had quite the sexy dress on, to titillate the Kevin Rahm character (and it worked!)
What is that thing next to her wearing? Elisabeth looks like a goddess next to it.
Moss was NOT pretty in her first 'look' as Peggy. Once she ditched that thin pony tail (on Joan's advice, natch) she looked much better. She needs a hairstyle that hides her face.
R48. What she really needs is a paper bag to put over that face!
I think she looks pretty good. I think she is a great actress and perfect for the part. One thing that makes Mad Men so compelling is that it has a mix of people of varying levels of attractiveness. Peggy Olson is not a 10 ... but she is attractive enough. A steady stream of men are interested in her and all the relationships are believable.
I sense that next season Trudy will be brought back into the mix. She is obviously an extremely likable character.
Those big 60s bouffants were not flattering at all, they had an aging effect. I look through my parents' yearbooks from the 60s and those 18 year-old girls looked downright matronly with those hairdos.

I will too. She can do WAY better than him.
