i am shocked to see some of those beauties as examples of what others might NOT find attractive. Shocked.
Amy Adams? Anne Hathaway? Chelsea Pedretti??
Well, it’s all relative. As Chalice_Of_Evil wisely wrote, “I think you could name just about anyone in this thread and it'd still count, as I believe no matter how many people find an actress attractive, there'll always be at least one person out there who doesn't agree. That's the beauty (no pun intended) of this thread - there's no 'wrong' answer, really.”
I prefaced my post on Amy Adams by saying that most people probably do find her attractive; the reason I posted here was that I specifically find the most attractive in, of all things, Night at the Museum 2. And I don’t see anything wrong with having a thread in praise of pulchritude.
I caught a few minutes of Now You See Me—a movie that I persist in loving despite its many ridiculousnesses—and it reminded me that I find Mélanie Laurent very attractive, especially so in that film. Again, probably not an unconventional choice, but I find her more attractive—and sexier—than Isla Fisher in the same movie.
Tonight I watched Woody Allen’s A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy (1982). Not good Woody or that great a movie—watch Ingmar Bergman’s wonderful Smiles of a Summer’s Night instead—but it got me thinking about Mary Steenburgen, who’s in it. I like her, a lot, but I always go back and forth on whether I find her attractive. But I found her very attractive in A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy.
I have been trying to finish of a late 80s supernatural horror film (somehow I keep falling asleep) known as Grave Secrets (1989), and I kept wondering where did I see this fascinating actress before? Turned out that Renée Soutendijk starred in a few dutch Paul Verhoeven films of the 80s, like Spetters and The Fourth Man, and also features in a potential interesting sci-fi/action thriller from the early 90s, known as Eve of Destruction (1991), which I have yet to visit, but looks quite fun.
Anyway, one thing I did notice from the first 20-25 minutes of Grave Secrets, is how she is almost portrayed like a "chameleon", in that she goes from "plain ordinary" into a rather sultry and very fine looking woman, which of course might be due to plot or lighting and such, but she has that kind of face, which in one scene looks very "different" (not ugly) but a combination of innocent and maybe more "not too obvious", and in the next, she is turned into quite a looker, and then next up, she has looks that could kill, in a cold and very scary or menacing manner. But yeah, certainly a very interesting actress, and reminds me a bit of a young Glenn Close.
Will hopefully see the entire film soon, as it did look enjoyable for what it was, and certainly a night time flick.
For it is written: the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with her blood. And I saw her sent upon a hairy beast and she held forth a golden chalice full of the filthiness of fornications. And upon her forehead was written: "Behold I am the great mother of harlots and all abominations of the Earth."
Traylor Howard, who’s best known for playing Natalie Teeger in Monk.
I find her particularly cute—and, at least in the Monk role, warm and likable. She’s also one of the show’s best comedians, with her line readings making even weak lines sound funny.
Loved her on that. Such an improvement over Sharona Fleming (Bitty Schram) who's actually not bad looking either but I didn't like her dynamic with Monk much at all.
I’m not a fan of Schram in the show, unfortunately, though I like a lot of the episodes she’s in. (If I were making a top 10, “…and the Billionaire Mugger,” “…Goes to the Ballgame,” “…and the Sleeping Suspect,” and “…and the Three Pies” would all make my list.)
Far from unconventional, just unknown, but tonight I watched this episode of Hunter—terrible show, but great to get sleepy to—in which his lawyer (played by Gloria Gifford) appears, and I thought she was both hot and a great character.
Apparently this is her only appearance on the show—too bad; I’d rather watch a show about her than about Hunter. (To be fair, the episode, “The Hot Grounder”—the only one written by TV super-producer Stephen J. Cannell—is shockingly decent by Hunter standards.)
