One thing that bothered me last season on HIMYM was the length of her hair, it was all wrong. She (or they?) shortened it a bit so now it is above her shoulders but not touching. It looks sort of lifeless and unfinished, like a hack job. I hope she (they?) let it grow out a bit more or else cut some layers into it to give it some body.
Do sitcom actresses have the ability to just cut/dye their hair however they see fit? Or, is it built into their contract in some way?

I've never thought of her as gorgeous, but certainly prettier than Alyson Hannigan. I once saw her on Conan or maybe Jimmy Fallon, and she was very likable. Plus she used to model. Moved to NY when she was a teenager and lived in Italy I think in her late teens/early 20s. She also has a kid with Taran Killam from SNL, which I found surprising because I thought Killam was fairly young. He has a bit of a baby face, but apparently he's in his 30s as well. And speaking of SNL... Bill Hader's pretty sexy. Go figure.

LOL @ R22 who seems to think *he* is the be all end all critic when it comes to what is beautiful.
Perhaps you have forgotten that all of us have different opinions.
If we all had the exact same view on who we thought was attractive, only about 1% of us would ever get laid.
Gosh, it cracks me up how we can all share our *opinions*, and an asshole like R22 comes along to tell us how wrong we are and how our standards are low. We may have different opinions, but I would be a prick and knock everyone else.
So glad I don't know you in real life.

I like her okay on the show, but she's a bit man-faced and horsey. Much like Jennifer Connelly and Brooke Shields, it's more noticeable as she ages.
Remember back when people talked about how pretty Maria Shriver was? Beware the curse of the horse-faced brunette.
|by Anonymous||reply 26||07/18/2012|
There are moments when she is made up, lit correctly and the camera angle makes her just stunningly beautiful and moments when she looks horsey and just plain jane. The episode (and any flashback) of Ted seeing her across the crowd at McClaren's is gorgeous, most of this season not so much.
The episode where she talks to her kids about how she met their father was pretty heart-wrenching but she still didn't look very good.

R39 - actually Farrah wasn't all that beautiful. Pretty, but Jaclyn outshone her, and Cheryl Ladd was more appealing and attractive.
Plus, Farrah and Cobie aren't really the same type.
|by Anonymous||reply 40||09/09/2012|
As they say, R40, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right. You don't think Farrah was all that. I think she was gorgeous, and sweet, silly, vulnerable, sort of like Marilyn Monroe (which you don't see much at all anymore). Cobie is extremely pretty, but from what I've seen of her on that show, there's no vulnerability, no sweetness. She looks like she's sleep with you and steal your credit cards on the way out of your apartment the next morning. Again, it's all in the eye of the beholder. BTW, I think Jaclyn was/is a gorgeous woman. I thought all of the four original Angels were beautiful, just different in their own ways.

Actually, I disagree. Cobie's character Robin shows a good deal of vulnerability and heart. That's one of the main reasons why the show works. Cobie also showed vulnerability in The L Word.

Wow. I've never seen her character on the show, but I don't get that at all from her pictures.

OK, R42. You may be right. I watched A LOT of "How I Met Your Mother" over the years (a friend would force me to watch it with him). I never liked any of the characters. And I thought Cobie's character was really cold to Ted, Barney, all of them, really. I know in recent seasons, they have tried to soften her up, but I don't buy it. But that's me. If you like her and the show, that's great. Honestly! There are so few shows worth watching on TV right now it's good to find one you like. I just never liked those characters, that's all.

When will the Ted character come out of the closet and we find out the "mother" is just his husband? Not particularly believable as the straight stud with all these women. Of course, in real life, the kids would have shot him by now after all these meaningless stories about his failures in his love life.

R55, it's so weird to see an actress with normal looking arms. Most of them now either have scary skinny arms, or they are too muscled.
I actually read about some castings for period piece movies and tv that they sometimes had trouble because so many actresses looked so "worked out", which is not the look for most time periods before the 1980's.
