The other day I got into a heated discussion about beautiful actresses with my colleagues - of course we failed to agree. Well, they are men (and therefore clueless) so I will not list their picks here. I will list mine, please feel free to agree or disagree. Just remember, it's looks I am talking about, not acting skills.
Angela Basset - saw her for the first time in "Strange Days". Then liked her even more in "The Score". Charlize Theron - impossible not to like, and one of the girls that featured on my colleagues "best of the best" list, too. Love her in "Italian Job". I don't like many blondes, she is one of very few exceptions.
Eva Longoria - perfect as an adulterous Desperate Housewife. Julianne Moore - simply perfect. Don't miss her in "Shipping News".
Kate B. - beautiful as a vampire ("Underworld") and as a vampire slayer ("Van Helsing"). Kate W. - English rose, I like her in "Holiday".
Keira Knightley - here is one love/hate relationship. Love her when she looks serious, hate her when she smiles. She knows it, and has her Posh act perfected. I like her in "Atonement".
Liv Tyler - Elven Queen in LOTR, amazing.
Michelle Pfeiffer - perfect in every single movie. Brilliant in "Stardust". Lucy Liu - "Payback" is my fave. Ouch!
Milla Jovovic - we were born same year in the same city. So where did I go wrong? LOL. "Fifth Element" is hard to beat, but I also like her in "The Claim". Monica Bellucci - the sexiest woman alive. Perfect in one of my fave movies, "Brotherhood of the Wolf".
Natalie Portman - I don't know what it is about this girl that I like so much. She is great in "V", and equally great in "Star Wars". Just, beautiful. Nicole Kidman - the ultimate femininity. I chose this pic on purpose - not the most flattering or airbrushed one, she looks very natural, and the movie I like her most in is "Cold Mountain". For a change, the one where she wears more clothes than makeup.
Rachel Weisz - amazing amazing amazing. Quirky, interesting and unusual kind of beauty. Love her in "The Mummies". Salma Hayek - I saved the best for last. Traffic-stopping knockout in "Desperado", and that dance with the snake in "From Dusk till Dawn" - it doesn't get better than that.
