* {{Brownface}}: Gemma Arterton, a fair-skinned Englishwoman, looks considerably tanner while playing the Persian princess Tamina. Of course, some Persians are as fair skinned as Northern Europeans, but a fair Gemma Arterton [[RealityIsUnrealistic would not be convincingly Persian to Western audiences]]. And she looks goddamn sexy with any color of skin.
