See Real Anna Nicole Smith Footage Juxtaposed With the Lifetime Biopic Version

This weekend Lifetime aired Anna Nicole, a biopic of the tragic former Guess model turned catatonic reality star who fatally overdosed in 2007. Anna Nicole Smith unapologetically coveted the camera, and so the TV movie's director, Mary Harron (American Psycho), had plenty of footage to re-create, from Smith's early modeling shoots to her drugged-out E! reality show to truly grotesque home-video footage taken by her parasitic lawyer, Howard K. Stern (played in the film by Adam Goldberg). In this video, see how the Lifetime biopic restaged some of these infamous, often ghoulish, moments.
