Remember Audrina Patridge? It’s totally ok if you don’t. The Hills “star,” who has been doing such mediocre things since the show’s conclusion as starring in Direct-to-DVD movies, hosting shows that air at 1AM and raking in Vegas appearance fees, tried to drum up her nerd fanbase at Comic-Con this past weekend. Instead of just showing up at a party and walking the red carpet like a normal fame-seeker, she went big. I’m sorry, I mean she went blue:
Audrina tried to pull the limelight her direction by walking the convention center floor as X-Men’s Mystique in head-to-toe body paint. At least the whole ordeal was part of filming the First Look travel show she hosts for NBC (which she recently took over from fellow ex-reality star, Ali Fedotowsky), so she sort of had a reason to be there. The whole body paint thing is just super awkward, though, and it hurts my brain to try picturing all the sweaty Comic-Con goers ogling her painted bod.
Now that she has experience as Mystique, will Audrina be taking over for Jennifer Lawrence in an upcoming X-Men movie? Not so much – she’s sadly just a fan of the character/attention. I would have loved to see Audrina face-to-blue face with JLaw, who is actually paid to play Mystique, as the two discuss the pros and cons of wearing body paint to attract fans.
Just kidding: like Jennifer Lawrence would ever hold a conversation with Audrina, or do anything other than be herself to attract fans.
Tell me, minions: are you impressed by Audrina’s dedication to the character? Or just depressed at her cries for attention?
