I have to agree with the Sandra Oh mention.  My wife always have a conversation during Grey's Anatomy.  I can't go one episode without saying something along the lines of "Damn she is ugly!".  My wife on the other hand thinks she is quite attractive.  I think she looks like a dog that has chased a parked car and has slammed it's face into the car's bumper.  The flat face just doesn't work for me, and I find most Asian women to be quite hot.

About 20 years ago, a professor I know gave a little slide show to the church youth group on his trip to China. I remember him saying that a flat face is considered quite beautiful by Chinese standards. I would imagine the same goes for Koreans.

I've kind of crossed over. I used to class Sandra Oh in the homely as hell category. But since she's from Canada, she gets plastered on a lot of magazines here. After staring at enough of her glamour shots in the supermarket checkout line (attractive or not, her face invites closer examination), I now find her oddly attractive.

Weirdly I've never seen the attraction in either Marilyn Monroe or Julia Roberts. I can't see what is attractive about either of them.

I never liked Julia much either, until I saw Erin Brockovich. Her liberal use of the F-word kinda turned me on. . .  Pity she didn't let the twins out in it though. .

Julianne Nicholson.  She was in Strom of the Century and Law and Order for a few episodes.  Not Hollywood hot-but attractive in home town girl attractive.

Been told with Marilyn it wasn't just her looks but the way her whole body personaility just screamed sensuality.  Or maybe it's one of those "first of her kind" type things.  (That is, when something is the first of any category, it automatically stays in the history books.)

And BTW, what is it about Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity) that makes her so SEXY, without being PRETTY? She doesn't fit the typical mold of a 'beautiful' woman, , but, , she makes my pants get a couple sizes too tight, if you know what I mean. .

I don't see the attraction to Angelina Jolie. She seems haggard to me, looks like she smells, and those freakish lips look like she gets stung by bees every morning when she wakes up. Is it because everybody thinks she's so "bad ass" and "independent"? I don't get it. Question

I thought that she was quite fetching in Memento.

I think you need your head examined, BOTH heads  BounceGiggle

Actually, I don't think she looks HAGGARD at all, and I think her lips are sexy. I'm still trying to figure out what you mean by "looks like she smells". . Yes, she has a nose, what else is she supposed to do with it?

I'm totally on-board with Angelina Jolie -- I think it's the cool calm detatched manner in which she handles herself in her later action films that really sets the bar high, though I thought she was gorgeous in "Girl Interrupted" as well.
Marilyn Monroe is an acquired taste, and the films that made her what she was in her day:  "The Seven-Year Itch", "Niagra", etc., simply aren't shown with any regularity these days & as she recedes into the past, nobody is inclined to rent these from the shelves.  You really have to give her a chance to grow on you -- merely seeing the reruns of what are today considered her 2 classic films:  "The Misfits" and "Some Like It Hot", don't really give the whole picture of her quality.  She created a sex character much like Mae West did in her day, but was actually a very good actress in her own right.  I  think she'd have done much better today than in the '50's and early '60's.
While I love Julia Roberts in her own right -- especially the underrated "Mary Reilly", with John Malkovich -- , I've never understood her "sex appeal" quotient.  She's reasonably attractive, but not someone I'd look at twice were I to pass her on the sidewalk.  I just don't get it when someone does an article about how "sexy" she is -- How?
Two other sex icons of modern times that I've never understood:  Farrah Fawcett and Susan Sommers.  Farah Fawcett is sort of off-putting in a redneck Texas cheerleader sort of way, and Susan Sommers is downright homely.  Go figure . ..

To me she looks worn out and kinda leathery. And the lips just look like a bad colegin (sp?) job even though they're natural. She looks to me like she smells bad. There's something about her that makes my nose think of armpit hair and a hot, humid summer day. Beyond her boobs and her ass I'd have to put a bag over her head and hold my nose. Not a popular opinion on my part but I still think she's a butterface none the less.

Agree with Anubis on Angelina Jolie, she does absolutely nothing for me.  Maybe she's just not my type, or maybe it's the fact that everything I've seen her in, she's got a complete and utter lack of any sort of human personality.  I'd much rather have pretty much any of the girls on the Weather Channel or the Food Netword over her any day (Well, except for the Barefoot Contessa).  Same with Marilyn Monroe, she just seems like her IQ is in the teens and her whole life must have revolved around getting wasted and getting laid.

Maureen Dowd:



Grossitosis! Then there's Dimitra Arliss who played "Loretta" from The Sting:



She reminded me a lot of one of Warren Harding's mistresses from back in the '20s, so she does fit the bill for that movie. She just doesn't look all that appealing to me.

Barbara Streisand still looked pretty good when she was Catwoman back in Batman Returns, but age has not been kind to her. As for Ann Coulter, she's actually very beautiful in person, though she's over the hill now and going the same way as Barbara Streisand.

Angelina Jolie does have ENORMOUS LIPS. Some people like that and some people don't...

Well then one of us in all screwed up then, because that is EXACTLY what I look for in a woman. . .
I'm just lookin' for a woman with a trust fund, a corvette, a fishing boat, who lives next to a bar, and has a huge set of jugs. Is that too much to ask for?
