Latest Movie Hotties Headlines

Battle of the Babes #10

07.10.2008by: Cherry Liquor

All eyes were on Eva Mendes for the prize of being the hottest of the Latinas in last week's battle. This week I thought I'd take you back a little and ask you to vote on hotness based on what you thought when your tastes weren't completely developed. (Or, for the younger readers, just pick the prettiest lady.) This week it's Battle of the Back in the Day Sweethearts.

Meg Ryan

Sure, she's cosmetically enhanced her face all to hell in recent years, but there was a time when you couldn't touch Meg in terms of take-home-to-mommy hotness. From the loyal military wife in TOP GUN to the role that would mimic life (as in they hooked up and had a kid as well) in INNERSPACE to faking orgasms in WHEN HARRY MET SALLY... Meg was a hottie that you knew would always surprise you. In later years, stripping down for the movie IN THE CUT, that surprise came due.

Elizabeth Shue

I think what I loved best about Elizabeth Shue in her earlier roles was that she looked healthy. In fact, I later went on to find out that she was chosen for her role in THE KARATE KID because some scout saw her playing soccer, which you have to laugh at when you watch Daniel-san try and teach her how to play in the film. She was the babysitter you didn't f*ck with and the girl from whatever island the Beach Boys were singing about. Later, she was the hooker with the tragic heart in LEAVING LAS VEGAS. She's always managed to be sweet and terrifically hot at the same time.

Jennifer Jason Leigh

What bugs me about people remembering FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH is that they lock onto either Phoebe Cates taking off her top in the day dream that Judge Reinhold has while jerking off, or they recall the tit-for-tat between Spicoli and Mr. Hand. What they tend to completely overlook is the fact that Leigh, in that virginal role as Stacy Hamilton, strips down to nothing and ends up with nothing but regrets. You can sympathize with her and relate to her (if you're a girl) and you can just press pause and gaze upon her, thinking back to high school and your first in-person naked girl encounter. And Leigh has just gotten more deep and interesting in the years since then.

So... which of these Back in the Day Babes is your fave?

What the hell is going on? Two weeks in a row I couldnt agree more with CrazyDud! This is another insanely easy one for me. Elizabeth Shue has always given me a stiffy. Adventures in Babysitting was the business and that's what got me into her. But her later films just keep proving she's always been and always will be an ultimate hottie. I would jump in a cold lake to have her warm up to me with skin to skin contact (The Saint), and I'd love to be invisible to crawl into bed with her

I know people rip that movie quite a bit (I liked it, whatever), but god, how hot was she in that!?

Yeah, this was completely easy. Shue.

And oh yeah, I still only think of Phoebe Cates in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. It's not cool seeing Leigh get preggers. It's cool seeing Cates in slo-mo doing the ultimate bad ass bewb revealage in cinema history.

Wow, that's a hard one (as the actress said to the archbishop).

- Meg had the cute thing down, but she got a little on my nerves later on (had some girlfriends who were into chick-flicks). However, that deli scene is still a classic.

- I also liked Elisabeth Shue because she wasn't a walking skeleton, but I never really saw any of her later films.

- Jennifer Jason Leigh gets massive props for being willing to drop her clothes at any available opportunity, plus she's a hell of an

I think I'll go with JJL, just to be contrary.

Meg... barely

I've always found Elizabeth Shue very attractive... but never particularly hot. On the other hand, Meg Ryan has been a subject of fantasy for two decades. Gotta give her the nod.

BTW, you forgot to mention Meg's earlier nude role... as Jim Morison's wife in "The Doors"

i am certainly more appreciative of Leigh's and Ryan's body of work, but in terms of sheer hotness, I'll go with Shue.

do i have to mention the scene in Leaving Las Vegas when she strips off her bathing suit next to the pool? even Nicholas Cage's disturbing body hair couldn't ruin the glory of that moment.

As much as I loved Meg (Hell who didn't? And you reminded us why- thanks.) My vote goes to Shue.
