I have debated with people over and over about this chick. She's one of those who seem to come off as either you love her or you hate her and I can't help myself, but my review of this week's Hot or Not selection is going to be heavily weighing on the positive. How you all will respond, I wait with baited breath to find out.
I know I'm dating myself here, but I noticed Swank right away in her early role in the BUFFY THE VAMPIRE movie. She was a bitch but she was funny when she died. EDIT: Duh... she doesn't die, she gets knocked out and gives the Miss America speech during the credits. I just remember her looking like a girl in high school that I WISHED would have died.
And I like it when the bitches get killed in the end. But after that, I don't recall THE NEW KARATE KID or anything else other than her brief stint on the original 90210, which, dating myself again... I liked her on.
Then seemingly out of the blue (also known as the year called 1999), Swank came out swinging as an actress in an incredibly rough and tender performance as a real life girl who believed she was born in the wrong body. After the movie came out, Swank dedicated herself to showing off the fact that she really wasn't a boy, many times wearing no bra under an outfit that was sure to be see-through under the pap's cameras. Bravo.
Banking on playing tough characters won her a second Oscar (yes, I know you hated it Mark, but the fact is she won) for MILLION DOLLAR BABY. Now, with the upcoming biopic AMELIA
, she could be looking to start her own little Meryl Streep set of nominations. And her acting is deserved of it. And personally? I think she's a f*cking babe.
Yet, Hot or Not isn't about what I think. Tell me your thoughts on Swank.
