I quite handily fell in love with Mira Sorvino
when she was in MIGHTY APHRODITE, the annoying voice and all. Then after winning her Best Supporting Oscar for that role, she went on to dominate the movie scene during the mid-'90's and
date Quentin Tarantino, quoting that she fell for him because he had a "no bullshit detector" and couldn't stand people in Hollywood who were too phony. (Doesn't explain his butt-buddy status with Eli Roth, though...) She also graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University in 1989. Come on! Who doesn't love a smart chick??
However, since marrying a much younger dude back in 2004 and popping out 3 kids in quick succession, we haven't seen too much of Mira over the last decade or so. She showed up to the premiere showing of MULTIPLE SARCASMS looking pretty damn good for a nearly 43-year old chick who's had three kids. She has 4 other projects on her plate for 2010, so here's to hoping we get to see a comeback from Mira in the near future. I'm sure RDJ would be willing to share some of that special comeback sparkle with her.
