I saw this title/headline today and cringed!
The incredible lengths actors go through to achieve superhuman looks
No one goes THROUGH incredible lengths! Length is a measure of distance, like going from Point A to Point B. So someone/an actor would go TO incredible lengths to achieve a goal – not THROUGH them. In another turn of phrase to convey the message, one might say/write “The incredible hoops an actor will jump through to achieve…. “.
I hate it when people mix metaphors like this. Yet they get a post on Yahoo and I’m starving/going bankrupt as I look for work.
