Jena Malone

What do you think schmoes?

For me, A BIG YAY! I am a huge fan. I loved her in......
BASTARD OUT OF CAROLINA, DONNIE DARKO, LIFE AS A HOUSE, CONTACT, STEPMOM, HOPE & DANGEROUS LIVES OF THE ALTER BOYS. She always plays a weird or fucked up character, with hidden demons. I love her and her work. Is anyone else a fan?

hmmmm me wonder what inspired u for this
The movie that me made take notice of Jena was Stepmom. I thought to myself, DAMN what a spoiled self centered girl (character-wise) I never saw her in Bastard & just noticed her as the young Jodie Foster in Contact. I think she goin places with the right roles and soon someday be one hot sexy mama!

YAY. She's a very talented young actress and I have never disliked her in anything, she's full of potential and will go very far.

Yay but not a big yay. She was good in Donnie Darko and Life is a House, and I had nothing against her in Stepmom, Contact or The Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys, but I don't think she's anything spectacular. She is a cutie, though.

I've only seen her in Donnie Darko and she was ok, so I'm undecided on this one. Don't find her attractive...which is a first I seem to find nearly every actress attractive.

I believe she's what BCV would call a minger.

Unattractive, and a "whatever" actress.

Loved Donnie Darko, and The Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys was pretty good too

I loved Donnie Darko and liked Life as a House but I think anyone could have done her roles--possibly better. Indifferent so -Nay.

Oh, most definately a YAY!

She is wonderful, some of my favorite movies like: Life as a House and Donnie Darko have dawned this young star. As said before; she's goin' places! Stepmom, a great film, Contact; not my cup of tea; but also great. She's got a good list under her belt... I'll be watching this one.

Not pretty. (looks 12 still) Not a good actress. She tries too hard.

Yay. Great young actress and she's pretty cute.

For those who haven't seen it, check out Bastard Out of Carolina to see a great performance, not simply a great child's performance, but a great performance in general.

I think she os a good actress. I don't find her very attractive though. So she gets half of a YAY!

Whoa....She gets a full 5 out of 5 YAYS for me. A true hottie and the fact that she is only 19 also gets me worked up. If I was famous, had a lot of money, was cute, and had better 'potiential' I could see something happening....what...no, I don't, but I can ALWAYS dream....

YAY. She's not your token actress type, but she brings a genuine feeling to the characters that she plays and that is what matters.

A mild YAY. Though I thought she has been pretty good in everything I have seen her, she plays the same character in all of them as well. She is pretty freaking cute though.

She was good and/or passable in Ellen Foster, Bastard out of Carolina, Life as a House and Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys, as well as being quite great in Donnie Darko. I enjoy her enough (despite her wretchedness in Stepmom), and she seems to be the indies "it girl" for the desirable, mysterious teenage object of our lead dudes desire.

i had seen her in all those films progressively and didnt take attention to her until darko....or was it life as a house, which ever came first and i fell for her...and wished she lived across the street from me or something...
very the girl in your neighborhood like anna paquin, the girls i am highly interested in

Yay from me, shes great in Donnie Darko and is quite attractive

I have liked her in every movie that I have seen her in, most recently "Saved" - but I don't think she is all that cute/hot

She was passable in Donnie Darko, but it was obvious she couldn't match Mr. Gyllenhaal, the T.T.B. (Talented Tobey Doppelganger).

Still, I like her for some reason, and on a side note, I think she'd be an ideal candidate for Claire Redfield in an adaptation of Resident Evil 2. To quote Roxette - "She's got the look."

YAY, but not a huge yay.

I like her...

Buts she needs to explore her acting talents a little more...

She always plays the same kind of charactor...Maybe she just likes those parts?

I agree, she does always play the same roles, but I think she's pretty and a decent actress, so yay
