I much rather prefer Gerard Butler in 300 to any of these rom-coms that he keeps popping up in, including this week's release, PLAYING FOR KEEPS. What, because he's gotten to be of a certain age, he can no longer kick ass and now has the be the romantic foil for a woman 20 years younger than him? He's so much better than that! He makes people eat dinner in hell! Actually, now that I think about it, rom-coms are a special kind of hell, so...
I love Judy Greer. Love her, love her, love her. I love a woman who isn't afraid to be funny, silly, goofy, sexy. I like that she was the loopy scientist on that one episode of "The Big Bang Theory" who also happened to be a raging sex maniac hoping to bed down all of the nerd boys at the same time. ("Now I like I'd like it hot, brown and sweet..." F*CK I LOVE THE WAY SHE DELIVERED THAT LINE!!!) No matter what I watch Judy in and no matter how they try to play her unique looks into something that is supposed to come off as ugly or dowdy, all I think about is wanting to tear the clothes from her milky white flesh. Yes, I admit it. I cannot pay my rent. Do with me what you will, Judy Greer. Do it hard.
While I might have featured Vera Miles in last week's Battle of the Babes because she was the original, real-life actress whom Jessica Biel was embodying for the biopic, I thought since she's in the movie and all, I'd add her to the list. (Duh.) I was tempted to use only the more mature actresses from the movie but frankly, as the years have passed I've really gained a great deal of respect for Biel. She's still relatively young and yet she has this verve about doing more, getting better, etc. I root for her not because she's a babe but because she works past that babe-a-tude to find a greater inner actress.
So hard for me to put down CZJ because I thought she was a complete and utter knockout who could never be beaten in any babe match-up before I even knew that one day I'd be writing babe battles. In her beginning years, especially that ass sliding under the red beams scene, nothing could touch her. But over time I've grown weary of her marriage to the much older guy, the disgusting pictures of her smoking while she was 8 months pregnant with her second child (topless on the family yacht, no less) and the vain attempt to push her real, underlying bitch face under the rug by claiming mental health issues. I give a thumbs up to the old Catherine. I add her here because she's still a decent actress. But in a grander sense, eh...
Which actress would you most like to play keeps with?-span>
