Hollywood celebs are known for staying tan, be it through hours spent at the beach or courtesy of in-home Mystic Tan apparatuses. Still, some stars prefer to keep their skin … how should we put this? … pasty, glowing white. Let's contemplate their translucence, shall we?
We're suspicious that Julianne Moore uses SPF 7500. How else to explain how she hits the beach while keeping her (admittedly perfect) skin free of any color whatsoever?
Burlesque queen and Marilyn Manson ex Dita Von Teese works to maintain her pinup girl pallor. While on vacation in France, she even brought along special UV-blocking drapes to prevent the sun from sneaking into her hotel room.
You can't make a list of celebrity heliophobes without giving a nod to Nicole Kidman. The former Mrs. Cruise is known for her milky-white skin (and a suspiciously lineless face.)
Recently, 9-year-old "Slumdog Millionaire" star Rubina Ali described working on a commercial with Nicole. She said the actress was "strange" and hid in her trailer to avoid any contact with direct sunlight.
Another pale lady, Anne Hathaway, distinguishes herself from Hollywood's young actress pack by, well, not dyeing her skin a disturbing shade of burnt orange. Who knew standing out was so easy?
"Twilight" star Kristen Stewart may be a Los Angeles native, but she bucks SoCal's bleached-out beach bunny stereotype by keeping her hair dark and her skin very, very pale.
OK, hiding from the sun may be in the job description for these "Twilight" kids. How else to explain Robert Pattinson's distinctly vampiric pallor?
Rose McGowan keeps her complexion a nice shade of eggshell white. No wonder she was a shoo-in for her witchy role on "Charmed."
Tilda Swinton in a tanning salon? It seems unthinkable. Unless, of course, it was some weird futuristic tanning salon for albinos.
Is shunning the sun more common for non-American actresses? Or just Oscar winners? Either way, Cate Blanchett makes Lindsay Lohan look like a Cheeto.
Fair-skinned Marcia Cross may just be an alien. How else to explain that she's been spotted going to the tanning salon, yet still manages to maintain a nearly neon-white pallor?
