Eliza Dushku visits Japan; terrifies children, elderly


I'm not sure why this is news, seeing as both of her recent shows, Tru Calling and Dollhouse, have been canceled in the first or second season, but I suppose having once guest-starred in something that aired for more than two makes Eliza Dushku's recent visit to Japan notable enough to write about. The reason for the visit? To promote the upcoming DVD release of Dollhouse.

I'm not really sure how good the series was, but I do recall catching an episode and thinking that it would have been great if not for her acting. Also, I'm pretty sure that no amount of DVD sales are going to result in a motion picture being made, or the show being posthumously renewed for a third season.

Now this has been bothering me for some time, and I figure this is as good a place as any to ask this, but can someone please tell me why people think she's attractive? Have you seen her eyes? Maybe it's just me, but it looks like her head was made of wax that's been left out in the sun, under a magnifying glass, for a little too long.

Maybe that's a little mean, but surely the Japanese would be the first to notice. After all, it took them less than a week to start photoshopping pictures of Faith (total coincidence) from Mirror's Edge. Maybe she should have considered using a Japanese plastic surgeon back in 2002, but something tells me that no amount of plastic surgery could fix those eyes. 

[Editor's Note: Apparently Dollhouse lasted for more than one season before being cancelled, which I suppose doesn't really change the fact that it was. The story has been updated to reflect that.]
