Pretty. Kinda. Sorta.

It's standard to use space within a blog such as this to celebrate beautiful women in Hollywood. But what about the kinda beautiful women? The not really beautiful, but I would never say they're ugly kind of women? Why not celebrate them? Why not? I can't think of a good reason not to, so let's do it. And let's use the lyrics from a Flight Of The Conchords song.

Looking at the room, I can tell that you.
Are the most beautiful girl in
In the whole wide room.

And when you're on the street, depending on the street.
I bet you are definitely in the top three.

You're so beautiful.
You could be a waitress.

You're so beautiful.
You could be a air hostess in the 60s.

You're so beautiful.
You could be a part-time model.

Cause you're so beautiful...
Like a tree.

Or a high class prostitute.

You're so beautiful.
You could be a part time model.
But you'd probably still have to keep your normal job.

So Piper ... if Anne and Nicole are not beautiful, who is?

Love the "Flight of the Conchords" song. I wish they were coming back on HBO for another season.

PIPER said...

Which one is Nicole?

I think Anne has her moments, but more often than not she's kind of strange looking. Not that strange can't be beautiful.

But in answer to your question, I would say that Rachel Weisz is beautiful. And Kate Beckinsale. And Kate Winslet. But it's all subjective.

And I watched the first season of Flight but felt it kind of petered out towards the end. Is the second season strong?

My son and I always listen to their music. If You're Into It and A Kiss Is Not A Contract are two of my favorites.

Holy sh_t. I thought Mena Suvari was Nicole Kidman. Must've been a senior moment. I think Mena/Nicole or whoever she is is lovely.

I think actually that every one you've mentioned is beautiful. Weisz drives me nuts.

Anne is always beautiful.

The most beautiful girl I have ever seen eating a kebab, even.

OMG Marilyn, are you sick with the flu? Did you just throw up and you wanted me to know?

Or does the site of these women make you want to throw up?

It can't be this post. Surely not.

Flight of the Conchords - what a great choice.

With the exception of Mischa Barton, I wouldn't turn away any of these Pretty-Kinda-Sorta ladies from my bed.

There's just something kinda mmmm... about all these gals.

Reel Whore,

There's a photographer that's a judge on the show Make Me A Super Model (not that I would know that because who watches that shit?). But on a episode of this show that I would never watch, he says to a model "there are two types of hot. Supermodel hot and girlfriend hot."

Obviously girlfriend hot was not as hot as supermodel hot, but it was still hot. A lot of these women are girlfriend hot.

That, my friend, is an awful, awful picture of Christina Ricci.

I'm on board with most of these, but c'mon - Hilary Swank? Elvis told me not to be cruel, and momma always said if you can't say something nice about someone, you shouldn't start a blog, think you get it.

I wish Mischa had some more meat on her bones, but she's above girlfriend hot in my book. And Mena Suvari is strange looking. She should be dating Sam Cassell.

Reel Whore said...

@Piper- They're definitely girlfriend hot. My wife thinks Anna Paquin is super hot, maybe she'll let Anna be my girlfriend. :-)

Mena and Anna have that come-hither look, like they'll make your toes curl given half an ounce of encouragement.

@Fletch- That Ricci photo is weird. She frequently has freaky lookin' photos. Mischa does need meat on her bones, but I dunno how much more appealing that'd make her to me.

PIPER said...

@Fletch and Reel Whore,

I cheated a little with Ricci. She sometimes looks real good and sometimes looks real weird. I went for the real weird look here.

Reel Whore,

I would totally date Paquin. I like her. She's roomy.
