(Via The Republic of T.) I knew there was a reason I liked Drew Barrymore (beyond the whole cute, talented actress thing)...
When Drew found out that a 23-year-old girl was about to have plastic surgery to look like her, for MTV’s loathsome “I Want a Famous Face” show, the actress tracked down the young woman’s phone number. Drew begged her to reconsider: “You are beautiful just as you are, as yourself.”

Life & Style magazine reports that Drew was so convincing, so earnest in her plea to save this girl from unnecessary surgery, that the potential patient relented and cancelled her Drew-like transformation.
MTV has been going steadily downhill for years, but this show is a new low, even for them. I place it in the same category as Extreme Makeover (NON-home edition) and The Swan as the absolute worst, most deplorable shows on TV.
