Anne Hathaway
Penelope Cruz
Cameron Diaz


Those are the first three that come to mind. Who else?

What?

I'd take Hathaway to the prom any day of the week! She's gorgeous. Cruz too.

I submit Kate Walsh, Julia Roberts, and Mary-Louise Parker.

Pfft. None of y'all bitches would kick any of those women outta bed for eating crackers.

Which would be the only reason they'd be there.

Which prompts the old joke: "Hey, my dog was named Crackers!"...anyway, I would like to second the Julia Roberts and Penelope Cruz, but I would like to add Kate Beckinsale. I'm not saying she's butt ugly, but I honestly forget what she looks like anytime she is not onscreen. Also, if Nicole Kidman loses any more weight, her nose will be sharp enough to punch holes in paper.

Sarah Jessica Parker. You keep expecting her to say, "Hello, I'm Mister Ed."

And Nicole Kidman can punch holes in my paper any time.

Well... regarding Cameron Diaz, I think it is mostly due to time taking its toll. When I saw "The Mask" as a teen, I thought that she was the prettiest woman I had ever seen, but now she looks emaciated, and Hollywood's problem is that it still seeks to cast her as the "girl next door". Unfortunately she's well on her way to spinsterhood now. Knowing how Tinseltown chews and spits starlets when the first wrinkle appears, she should try to diversify into more serious (i.e. dramatic) roles. But then, we've seen "Gangs of New York".

As for Zellweger, also agreed -- the only actress to ever pout her way to an Oscar.

Anne Hathaway is beautiful. And it's not just for the scene in Havoc where she simulates masturbation and cries out my name.

Nicolette Sheridan is STILL hot. Unlike Kim Cattrall who was ridiculously cute back in the day and then became (for some reason) a respected actress for playing a slut on TV. I'd still do Nicolette. Cattrall would try to tell me what I'm doing wrong in bed and I'd be all "BITCH, you were in MANNEQUIN!"

I would offer the following to the discussion.

Sandra Oh!
Julia Stiles
Eva Longoria
Jennifer Lopez

And someone please tell Diane Lane she's hot so she stops playing women who can't get dates.

Keira Knightley. The moment in the trailer for Atonement where she's messing around in the fountain wearing a nightie is clearly meant to show how sexy she is, but she's so scrawny she looks like Bob Geldolf is about to put his arm around her and shout: "Give us yer fookin' money NOW. THIS is what goes towards!"

Second that on Knightley. And I would add Scarlett Johansson, decent actress but with an annoyance factor through the roof.

I went to college with a guy that looked pretty much exactly like Knightley.

A GUY.

Granted, it would be Knightley if she were a dude, a foot and a half taller, and an early 90s alterna-freak. Supercool dude all around. And it's awfully hard to look at Knightley without thinking "Oh, that's the jawbone, nose, and smile of Chris."

(Bartley has it spot-on about the ugliness of the super-skinny. All these starlets who start out curvy and sexy only to wind up like the Cryptkeeper. Eat a fucking muffin, you bony freaks.)

Sandra Oh has a weird face, but she's got decent body and the Asian edge, so she classifies as cute.

Mary Louise Parker isn't that gorgeious physically (cute and nice body, but eh). But she's got a real cute personality despite being a mess, at least in Weeds. I hereby deem her cute as well.

There's a lot of actresses that I've never found hot, or used to find hot but don't anymore, etc. But I can't think of anybody who hasn't already been mentioned.

Clearly, there is the power of Photoshop, but...

Ha, I just knew a discussion about beautiful (or not) ladies would bring Sommersby AND McKay back out of hiding.

How the hell are you two? Where've you been?

And go and review something.

Yeah, she's heavily photoshopped there. She rarely looks that good on screen, although I'm not saying she's unattractive by any stretch of the imagination. Make no mistake, I would definitely do 'er Very Happy

And MP - I've been good man, just busy as fuck. Between the day job ramping up like crazy, and getting hitched, I rarely have time to watch a flick these days (been mostly catching up on TV series I missed with my very limited viewing time). One of these days when things settle down though, I'll be back!

Woah, you got hitched? When did this happen?! Let me guess - you finally slipped Reiko Aylesworth one in her drink, and currently have her chained up in the cellar? Cool

Seriously though man, many belated congrats. That's awesome news!

M.P.,

They're still trying out drugs on me for my schizophrenia, and hopefully one day we'll fasten upon the right one that'll keep these racing thoughts from burdening me -- it makes it really hard to focus. But I managed to crank out a review a little over a month ago:

http://www.efilmcritic.com/review.php?movie=16239&reviewer=327

y2mckay,

Many, many congrats on your marriage. She's lucky to have gotten hitched to a guy who doesn't make any apologies about being a fan of the underrated 3000 Miles to Graceland!

I'm not a doctor (just a little nosy) but that sounds more like bipolar than the schiz. You sure you're not getting misdiagnosed?
