Joely Richardson Distressingly Skinny, Says Salivating British Tabloid

Joely Richardson appeared at a benefit in London yesterday showing "signs of strain," as the Daily Mail puts it, though being careful to never use the dreaded A-word that cost the publication $6000 in a damages to Keira Knightley.

While the photo to the left, taken Thursday night at the Swarovski Fashion Rocks concert, may not be as shocking as some of the backless numbers in the Mail article, there's no doubt in our minds from these images that Richardson has dropped a significant amount of weight—something that wouldn't typically render us too concerned, save for the possibility that Rosie O'Donell might press her face into a hot waffle iron, too, in a desperate attempt to get her co-star to consume some carbs.
