With the current discussions going on about Rose Huntington-Whiteley and whether or not she's going to do a good enough job making us forget about the fact that she replaced the Megan Fox female meat character in the TRANSFORMERS series, I thought that it might be fun to look at some of the other women who started their careers as models and ended up getting enough attention to be cast in pretty big movies. Does that mean they're great actresses? Hey now... I didn't go that far.
I like Moynahan enough, other than the fact that she got caught up in crazy baby-mama drama with that football player who went to hook up with another model and make a baby machine out of her as well. She started off with small roles in small movies until she got some attention as one of the model bartenders in COYOTE UGLY, which is probably one of the high points of her career for me. Most of the other films, LORD OF WAR in particular, she killed for me. But at least she's a good looking woman.
I'm a sucker for the fish pouts. Even if they wear thin on me, there's something about a woman with big juicy lips that can get me to overlook a lot of crap. And in Warren's case, it's a particularly valuable trait to possess. Lots of crappy movies are listed in her "acting" career, including the gem, KANGAROO JACK. But the chick got me to sit through a boring little number HER MINOR THING, some crappy B movie that I happened to stream from NetFlix one night out of sheer boredom, thinking that I could at least stare at that mouth and fade away into the good night with a smile.
The most successful of the 3 that I've selected this week, if you go off of her first marriage to Uncle Jesse and her second marriage to the fat kid from STAND BY ME. Oh yeah, and she's been slathered in blue body paint to be the model chick who played Mystique. A handful of other big screen projects can be added to her semi-successful run on the television show "Ugly Betty" and a canceled series called "Pepper Dennis," which never made it further than the first 13 episodes. All in all, while Romijn is the biggest household name of the bunch, she's still just another member of the pretty posse. I said, POSSE.
Who do you like out of the model bait?
