Battle of the Babes #71

Sep. 24, 2009by: Cherry Liquor

They shoot up... and then they come crashing down into the pages of the poorly dressed section of gossip rags. If they can get into those at all. There are actresses who kick around that make me marvel at what could have been, as well as ones who continue to work and make me wonder why not them. This week's battle is all about the babes who are still babes but no longer the full fledged toast of Hollywood's eye.

Shannyn Sossamon

Shannyn kills me because I always, without fail, have to look up how to spell her name. She also kills me because even though she was nothing short of luminescent in her first roles in A KNIGHT'S TALE and 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS, she went off to have a kid that she named Audio Science. That's fine if you're riding a high career wave but if you drop off the planet and give birth in a hole like a feral cat, coming out proves difficult. Mostly forgettable roles even in big stuff (I mourned her even as she was on screen in KISS KISS BANG BANG), Shannyn has been ONE MISSED CALL perhaps for too long to allow Hollywood to reembrace her.

Rachael Leigh Cook

She had the world waiting at her feet after she leaped off the screen in SHE'S ALL THAT. But something funny happened along the way with Cook. She never got any less attractive, she just seemed to either not have the right agent getting her the right roles or her own selections ended up killing her. Reduced to playing second fiddle best friend to Jessica Simpson in the straight to DVD BLONDE AMBITION and with nothing more than low budgets in her coming future, I wonder what the hell happened to RLC's potential.

Lauren Ambrose

This is probably the babe of the bunch which bothers me the most because she's the most talented actress. Still cast in minor roles in indie flicks with bigger names (like Paul Giamatti in COLD SOULS or Jeff Bridges in A DOG YEAR), Ambrose is going to be featured as a voice in WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. I still can't get out of my head how her sex scene in the bathroom with Seth Green in CAN'T HARDLY WAIT was hysterical or how kooky and fantastic she was in the outrageously fun PSYCHO BEACH PARTY. Why is Lauren not a top shelf star??

Extra Tidbit: Last week, the Battle of the Kates was hot and heavy. Blanchett ended up with the lowest votes (2), Winslet was a very good contender, taking 13 of the 32 total votes and the winner, who I really wasn't completely sure would be so, was Kate Beckinsale with 17 of the 32 votes, or just over 50% approval from the feedback.

Cook

Definitely Rachael Leigh Cook. I actually watched Blonde Ambition just because she was in it.

Cook has been on the show Psych lately and is still looking good, but ever since I saw A Nights Tale I have a thing for Sossamon. She definitely gets my vote.

i was always waiting for Lauren to get naked on Six Feet Under. don't think it ever happened, unfortunately. but she's my choice. we need more crimson-haired representation in Hollywood.

Ambrose

I think she is the only one that has a chance to keep the flame alive. Plus she is the only one that has been nominated (possible won) an Emmy award. I know this is a movie site not a TV site, but she has proven to be a smoking hot talent, not just a smoking hottie.

We could get her together with Amber Benson and they can have a redheadathon. SWEET!!!!!!

RLC is by far the hottest of the three and she was pretty funny in her guest spot on Psych, plus she knows how to beat the crap out of things with a frying pan

Rachael Leigh Cook gets my vote. I'm a big fan of this girl and it surprises me that she's not famous. There isn't a doubt in my mind that if she got the right role in a big budget franchise that she would become a huge star and people would always be talking about how much they love her. The fanboy love for this girl would be through the roof.

I think she's gorgeous and a talented actress, she can do both drama and comedy.

You're right that Lauren is the most talented. RLC sucks just for the fact that she was in She's All That. God awful flick. So, Shannon wins for me. Hot (even though I'm not too big on A Knights Tale). What DID happen to these chicks?

I'll go with Cook on this one. Ambrose is cute as well but she doesn't have Cook's sex appeal.
