The consensus last week was that Leighton Meester
was hot, but that she hadn't done enough for people to recognize her from any other brunette hottie. (I beg to differ, but eh.) This week, let's look at a hottie who has been kicking around Hollywood for so long, if you haven't seen at least ONE movie she's been in, then you must be a zygote.
I remember her as Cherry. In 1983, Lane was only 18 when she starred as that hot preppy red-head in THE OUTSIDERS, kicking off a nation's obsession with the rich girl wanting to get screwed by the bad boy. Molly Ringwald owes most of her late '80's salary to Lane for setting up a career for her. Taking off time here and there, mainly to have a kiddo with Christopher HIGHLANDER Lambert, Lane's actually been working steadily since her youth.
Yet it wasn't until the early 2000's that Lane became what all little girls hope to mature into once they've waded through the alcohol binges of their 20's. An almost 40-year old woman who was pulling down the hottest men with a simple bat of her demure eyes. Making both men and women go wild in 2002's UNFAITHFUL, she drove Richard Gere to murder and women around the world into a frenzy of trying to find a hot guy with a French accent to screw them in a public restroom.
Soon to be seen in what is sure to be another testosterone-sapping mess of a movie, NIGHTS IN RODANTHE
, Lane makes a reprise appearance with Gere, this time teaching him love instead of vengeance. (I swear on a stack of Rachael Ray cookbooks that I hate Nicholas Sparks more than George Lucas for ruining my childhood with the Kingdom of the Crystal Meth-Face, WTF were they thinking? flick.) Even sporting what looks like a haircut that only Jodie Foster would love, I'm pretty sure that she's still going to get people's bits buzzing.
Your thoughts on Diane Lane?
