In the grand tradition of profiles that implore you not to hate the subject despite her embarrassment of blessings, Page Six Magazine's interview with Isabella Rossellini's daughter Elettra Wiedemann pretends to humanize her by using adjectives like "klutz" and "dork," and telling us that as a teen she wore a back brace for scoliosis, which made her cruel Nightingale-Bamford classmates tease her.

Elettra Weidemann says her charity JustOneFrickinDay.com, which funds development projects in Africa, was inspired by the weekends she spent as a child at a conservation center in Florida with her mother Isabella Rossellini—who, Elettra reveals, does "green pornos" for the Sundance Channel where she "dresses up as a bug, fly, spider, grasshopper...praying mantis, and explains how bugs have sex." Sounds much more fun than modeling for Lancome! (But not dissimilar from acting for David Lynch.) [NYO]
