Tara Reid in pink at the ‘Sharknado’ premiere: pretty or cheap, hot mess?

Ian Zierling Tara Reid

Here are some photos of roottastic Tara Reid and spongehead Ian Zierling at the Los Angeles premiere of Sharknado on Saturday night. I’m not quite sure why they’re holding a premiere for this bloody movie since the whole of Twitter (except for me, apparently, because the trailer was enough) has watched this movie already on Syfy. I find it rather hilarious that Syfy has gotten all excited and decided to greenlight a sequel for theaters based merely upon Twitter trending. Oh well.

In terms of casting, there have actually been some pretty predictable gossip about the sequel. First, TMZ started the rumor that only Ian was invited back for the second movie (while Tara was rejected), but then producers said they’d “be lucky to have her back,” and Tara is supposedly holding out because she wants to see the script first (LOL). Further, Tara is said to be gunning for her BFFs, the Jedward twins (those zany UK singing sensations), to appear in the sequel and do some “soundtrack” work. There’s no script for the sequel as of yet, but I’m sure they’ll hire some hack to write it sooner rather than later.

Let’s talk about Tara’s dress though because she looked like a hot mess (and to think, I had such hopes for her after the American Reunion premiere) as usual. What would you describe this color as …. salmon? I guess that’s fitting for the theme of the movie. I’ve got no designer ID on this dress, but that’s to be expected because it is awful and looks like it came straight off the rack at Sears.

She looks so happy! But because she’s Tara Reid, she’s got lipstick all over her teeth.

You know, I actually am glad to see Tara on a red carpet instead of boozing it up in Cannes with some gross, 60-year-old jewelry designer on her arm and in her pants. Here are a few more photos of Tara (age 37) in another mullet dress at last Thursday’s Young Hollywood awards. Somehow, Tara’s roots weren’t nearly as prominent as they appeared on Saturday’s premiere. Maybe it’s the different lighting at work.

    Wow. Ian’s looking good! Shaking my head in bewilderment that he’s in a movie called Sharknado & that Tara Reid is in it.

  2. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Good Lord, her knees!

    I just can’t believe anyone would be in a movie called “Sharknado” and actually take it seriously. There’s budget movies, and then there’s BUDGET movies. This one falls into the latter category. Who greenlights and writes this crap? I saw the trailer; it’s not even funny-bad, where you giggle and laugh at how horrible it is, it’s just BAD.

    Tara Reid doesn’t look too bad from when we saw her last, but dang. She’d look good if she was about fifty, not thirty-seven.

      It’s by Asylum: a production company that specialises in B-movies and “mockbusters” (e.g., Transmorphers, or Snakes on a Train). What I found most interesting is that Asylum has never lost money on a movie.

      Kind of sad to think that Sharknado will make more money than Lone Ranger (which seems to be a flop) and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (which grossed almost a billion but according to creative Hollywood accounting made exactly $0 profit.)

    • Brown says:

      I am a pretty big fan of terrible SyFy movies, so I don’t really understand why Sharknado is getting so much buzz… just because of Twitter? I mean, seriously, Sharknado is nowhere near the most ridiculous and absurd movie that the SyFy channel has put out (not shading them… I love it.) So what happened here to make Sharnado take off? I mean, other than the brilliant storyline and stellar acting, I’m sure…

      • MonicaQ says:

        People reacting to it on Twitter + now it’s Shark Week. Game over.

      • The Original Mia says:

        I love SyFy’s campy movies. This one was painfully dumb. Not even fun in a velveeta kinda of way. I don’t know too many people who are actually clamouring for a sequel, except the clueless director, who mistaken snark for admiration.

      • yolo112 says:

        lol..Sharknado. Dinoshark. Shartopus. Piranhaconda. Mega python vs Gatoroid (staring Debi Gibson and Tiffany!! lol) and finally… Pterodactyl (staring Coolio for christs sakes)… my summer movie list reflects too much kid time. I credit the buzz to it being summer with LOTS of kids that love this stuff..lol..

      • Lucrezia says:

        The twitter-explosion was basically driven by Wil Wheaton, who’s the guy who played the kid (Wesly Crusher) on Star Trek: Next Gen (and one of the kids in Stand By Me ). He’s got a massive geek following: almost 2.4 million twitter followers.

        I don’t know if he knew someone in the movie and was trying to promote it, or if he was just bored, but he did a count-down and then live-tweeted the movie. (I suspect he was just bored, because he was definitely taking the piss out of the movie, not praising it.) Other celebrities joined in and it snowballed.

  3. ncboudicca says:

    I guess I’m surprised that she’s only 37!

  4. Cleveland Girl says:

    For all her hard partying I think she looks amazing for 37. She looks way younger then Lindsey Lohan!!

  5. VioletCrumble says:

    Considering what she looked like not that long ago, she looks so much nicer now. Except for the regrettable boobies. And those knees. Cover up, luvvie.

  6. Stef Leppard says:

    This is LiLo’s future.

  7. Jenn says:

    The fourth picture, Tara reminds me of Lamb Chop

  8. doofus says:

    if you hadn’t identified her, I’d have said, “hmmmm…who IS that? she looks a little bit like Tara Reid.”

    she looks terrible. f-ed up her cute face with unnecessary surgery.

  9. Snowpea says:

    Oh my god…I have this obsession with ‘making under’ trashy blondes.

    Why the eff dont they cut that trashy hair and have it in a cute bob (Brandi Glanville and Courtney Stodden I’m looking at you), get rid of the trashy threads and wear a pair of tailored trousers with a silk blouse or a nice T under a cute blazer with some cute tan leather shorts and a cute ballet flat.

    A smoky eye and a nude lip. Airdried hair with a spritz of volumiser.

    How do these chicks get it so wrong?

    Pretty girls who look cheap. Pffffft.

  10. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    P.S. her boobs look FAKE.

  11. Amy says:

    Just to make a correction, Jedward are Irish singers, not UK singers.

  12. Madpoe says:

    I forced myself to watch that movie. Forced. She looks improved.

  13. Hahahaa says:

    Her knees, OM FREAKING G!!!

  14. Samigirl says:

    Ya know what? She looks good for her.

  15. marina says:

    She has lipstick on her teeth. Couldn’t someone have told her. She looks so white-trashy. I’m a little embarassed for her.

  16. NerdMomma says:

    I have a soft spot for Tara Reid. Don’t know why. She just seems like a doll. If she would hoist them boobies up and make her neckline a teensie bit higher, she’d look great.

    • ShaCur says:

      oh me too! I think it’s because she always looked a little too fragile, was never really taken that seriously, didn’t have a whole lot of talent, but always looked like she put in too much effort. I’ve never heard reports per se, but she seems like the one who got mean girled at the parties her “friends” threw, but didn’t have much else going for her. Correct me if there is evidence to the contrary, but she seems like a nice girl who threw away self respect a long time ago – a cautionary tale for young up and comers who have a hit they think will float them the rest of their lives…

  17. Az says:

    It’s always 1999 in Tara’s world, isn’t it?

  18. Jayna says:

    I think it’s the best she has looked in a long time. Her face looks fresh and pretty, not the worn-out, drunk-girl face we’ve seen for years. Small boobs were much more attractive on her petite frame.

    I used to make fun of her or usually diss her in a judgey way, but I can’t anymore. She is a severe alcoholic and that’s very sad.

  19. Nicolette says:

    Is this movie really such a big hit? Saw a clip and cheesy doesn’t begin to describe it. Never even heard of it until after it was on, and the NY Post was raving about how great and popular it was.

  20. Gabriella says:

    My friend showed me the trailer to this movie when we were stoned and I laughed my lungs out for literally half an hour processing the idea that “Sharknado” is an actual movie and Tara Reid is in it.

  21. UsedToBeLulu says:

    She looks pretty good actually. She is not as bone thin as she has been in the past.

    As for everyone yelling about her knees – get over it. It will happen to you too, and guess what? You won’t want to walk around for the rest of your life in capris and long skirts either.

    It’s time we stopped shading women for showing signs of natural aging.

    • NerdMomma says:

      A big +1 to that! I’m getting close to Tara’s age and my knees ain’t looking like they used to. Nor is any other part, LOL. I think I’ll just start praising all of the celebs who are brave enough to show the natural signs of aging, rather than showing the signs of plastic surgery. I want the plastic trend to be over by the time our daughters are in college!

    • nicegirl says:

      I agree! I think she is looking much prettier and healthier these days than she has in the (relatively recent/not American Pie) past. Bright eyed, nice skin . . .

      I might consider dumping my stylist though, if she let me on the red carpet with lipstick tooth, plus the mullet dresses and those shoes, my goodness.

    • Becky1 says:

      +2! Aside from the boob job (which she’s had for years) I think she looks good. She looks really happy and excited. I can’t hate on her-I think she’s pretty harmless.

      Yeah, the ageist snarking really gets on my nerves. It’s funny-I think some of these ladies in their teens and twenties forget that someday (if they are fortunate) they’ll be in their thirties, forties and beyond and their bodies and faces will change. It happens to everyone if you are lucky enough not to die young. No matter how well you take care of yourself you will age. Appreciate your youth but don’t snark on older women…you’ll be there someday, too.

  22. ThatGirl says:

    Someone should send Howard Stern some “Thank You” flowers. Its almost funny how this movie gained popularity thru pure absurdity.

    One last thought, Tara Reid is trapped in the American Pie days.

  23. snappyfish says:

    she always looks so cheap. poor thing.

  24. Mew says:

    She’s desperately trying to stay 16 years old, probably because that’s all she knows. Oh well.

  25. AmyLynne says:

    Cassie Scerbo is also in Sharknado, right? Any pictures of her from the premiere?

  26. anoninternettroll says:

    i think she looks good. the best in a while.
