Mr. Demille I'm Not ready for a high-definition close-up?
The unforgiving clarity of high-definition television has induced paranoia among celebrities obsessed with their appearance.
The technology produces images so sharp that even subtle imperfections, usually hidden by make-up or flattering lighting, are brutally exposed.
"With high-definition television facial imperfections and ageing signs are dramatically visible." You think Cameron Diaz is flawless until you see her in high definition. Heather Locklear was cited as "a classic case of the HDTV effect. In regular TV, she still looks great, sexy as ever. But in high-def, the ageing lines and wrinkles are everywhere."

According to Swann, celebrities who appeared flawless on high-definition television included Mischa Barton, Anna Kournikova, Eva Longoria, Catherine Zeta Jones and Jessica Alba.
