Here's one for the Blogtown Crime Cracker Club! Obviously everyone who has been watching the new season of Arrested Development has noticed something... ummm... different(?) about Lindsay's (Portia de Rossi) face.

CLUE ONE: Before and After Pics!

  • BEFORE...

  • ...AFTER!


According to E! Online. "She's absolutely not had plastic surgery," a source tells the site. "Her character is clearly wearing a wig, which ended up altering her entire look."


TV Guide Magazine: There has been a lot of speculation over whether Portia de Rossi changed her looks, is that why there are more playful digs at Lindsay's appearance?

Creator Mitch Hurwitz: I've read a couple things that people thought she looked different. It's been 10 years since the pilot, and I think she's a vegan now and that really changes your whole body type. But it was absolutely not meant to be a joke at Portia's expense. It was at Lindsay's expense. She doesn't look different to me.

DO YOU SMELL PHONEY BALONEY? Or is this a deep Arrested Development gag that's fucking with our minds?
