In Which I Comment on the Beauty of Female Celebrities
I’ve given this a lot of thought over the years. Below, some notes.
Girls Next Door: Jennifer Garner, Courtney Jaye, Rachel McAdams. They’re just cute.
Women Who are Not Stick Insects: Kate Winslet, Salma Hayek. This is probably my favorite category.
Those Who Inspire Grudging Admiration: Mila Kunis, Scarlett Johansson. I do want to hate them, but I don’t.
The Women of Ally McBeal, Except Ally McBeal: Portia de Rossi, Lucy Liu, Jane Krakowski. Really just those three.
The Normals: Queen Latifah, Tina Fey, Drew Barrymore. They look and act like regular people and still manage to be pretty pretty.
Actresses Who Made The List Because of One Movie:
Sanaa Lathan. She makes the list solely because of Something New.
Elizabeth Banks. She makes the list solely because of Zack and Miri Make a Porno. (I also like the name Miri.)
The Adorkables: Emma Stone, Zooey Deschanel, Ingrid Michaelson. This is my second favorite category.
Charlize Theron: She never stood a chance of making this list after this comment.
Keira Knightly: Weird torso, right?
Juliette Lewis: Lots of people think she’s pretty, and I want to too, but I just think she’s strange-looking and not in that good way.
