And that's saying quite a bit, considering how nuts I am for the redheads. Alicia might have been my first experience with redheads, way back in the day when she and I were but young pups and she was messing with guys heads as a miniature Bene Gesserit witch in David Lynch's decidedly weird interpretation of DUNE. Of course, we didn't see a lot of her actual hair in that movie, but she was nonetheless my favorite part of that movie when I was a tike - mostly because she was my age, yet could still take over people's minds and kill planetary leadership at will - very empowering for an 8 year old.
I didn't really see much of her again until 1995, when my love affair with her really began. That was when I caught sight of that incredible hair in MR. HOLLAND'S OPUS. Another event that year was her delicious semi-nude scene in 4 ROOMS, an unjustly underrated film btw.
I was hooked from that point on. Checking her out in these red carpet shots, it seems like she's thickened up a bit, of which I approve. One of the few criticisms I had of her was that she did appear a bit bony at times, so seeing her filled out a bit warms my heart even more.
Alicia hasn't had as big a spotlight as she deserves, but she'll always be my favorite. Always.
