I can't really say that any of the actresses I ever "liked" we're consistant in either their craft or the roles they chose.
I can however name a few scenes that made me take notice of certain actresses and knew they'd be popular.
They would be (in no specific order):
- Nathalie Portman (Leon the Professional): Despite the slightly creepy undertones, Portman's portrayal of Mathilda in this movie was fantastic
and after seeing the next scene, I knew that we'd be seeing more of her in the years to come. Still one of my favorite Besson movies but everytime I
watch this film I can't help but think:
"How on Earth did France get so messed up in the head?"
- Scarlett Johansson (Ghost World): I remember the comic book of this one so I guess I am a bit prejudiced in my opinion of it. Still it was
the first mainstream film by Scarlett in a co-starring role if memory serves. Not many realized back then that she'd bring down the house wearing a
black skintight leather catsuit schlepping for Disney one day but some of us knew big things were in her future.
No, that was most certainly not meant as a double entendre.
- Christina Hendricks (Firefly): I don't know what else to say...except I know the two reasons she was hired for. A fantastic series.
Too bad the real government couldn't have a runaway hit on tv about space constitutionalists flouting the establishment when it's goal
is to establish a police state. One look at Miss Hendricks and I was fairly positive that even if she couldn't act her way out of a wet paper
bag, we'd definitely be seeing more of her. Imagine my suprise when I discovered she could actually act. I couldn't find many clips of her from
Firefly except in a deleted scene that occurs at about 1:40. As near as I can tell...she's the only mainstream actress in Hollywierd with two
separate and distinct zipcodes permanantly attached to her.
- Julia Roberts (Mystic Pizza): It's an oldie and much like the title is full of 80's cheesey goodness but it still makes me laugh. I knew Miss
Roberts would be a hit after this one...mind you I never liked any of the other Robert's family members.
(Namely Eric and Emma!)
- Uma Thurman (The Adventures of Baron Munchausen): Her role as the Goddess Venus was spellbinding to my teenage mind. After Kill Bill,
I'm kinda glad I hung in there.
(Raging Bull was good too but whatever...)
As I said, not exactly my "all-time" favorites but just a few of the times I could see Hollywierd's eyes just a rollin' with dollar signs from a long

Hot list(AKA, I think these women are extremely attractive, they also may or may not be great actresses):
-Natalie Portman- V for Vendetta, Black Swan
-Scarlet Johansson - Lost in Translation
-Kate Beckinsale- Underworld
-Keira Knightley - Bend it Like Beckham
-Audrey Hepburn- Breakfast at Tiffany's
Talented Actresses(may or may not be hot)
Meryl Streep(even though she personally annoys me in the interviews I had watched in past when I had TV, she can act)-Sophie's Choice
Audrey Hepburn- Breakfast at Tiffany's
Susan Sarandon-Thelma and Louise
Katherine Hepburn-Philadelphia Story
There's a bunch more. Maybe it would have been better to narrow it down to last five years. Of all time is a lot of time.
