Realism - Shay's looks


Do street prostitutes really look like Shay? Compare her to the prostitutes portrayed on the TV Shows: "The Shield" and "Southlands". They should have cast someone more realistic.

I just didn't buy that a girl that stunning would be on the streets. She'd be billing $500/hr at some high end escort agency.

Bauer vs. Bourne, that is the question.

...only one way to find out.

99.9% of hoars don't look that good. It makes movies more enjoyable when they use hot actresses. I don't think IMDB will let me use the correct spelling of that word, I know how to spell it.

I do think some prostitutes would be that pretty but I agree they would be making a whole lot more money than she was. She was clearly really naive and inexperienced, but you are thinking of TV and TV is not always the most realistic.

I had a very similar thought. I actually said to myself during the movie, "she's pretty enough to be a model. She wouldn't even have to take her clothes off to make a living."

I think the distinction is she is an escort (call girl, etc) and not a street prostitute. At the beginning of the movie, while having wine with an older woman, she asks the older woman what she saw in her which I took to mean she probably started out on the street but then the woman gave her the opportunity to move into the biz of higher priced escort clients.
