The place where I recall Joely from first is when she embodied the human form of the 101 DALMATIANS character Anita. I liked seeing the cartoon come to life and Joely did just that. Beautiful, delicate, just the right amount of hysterical concern in her voice. It all worked out well, even if she was ultimately eclipsed by her bad girl co-star as the infamously popular Cruella DeVille.
The daughter of acting royalty, it made sense that Joely end up in movies and other productions. With the years, she's never really aged in that one spot that every woman would death, murder, kill for: her body. The part of her that's changed over the years has been her face, with the narrow bridge of her nose looking more and more like an icy point. I don't dislike it, though. Hell, there were a couple of times that I couldn't change the channel from "Nip/Tuck" when I happened upon it and she was in the scene. I still don't really know what was truly going down in that show, though.
I get this impression that Joely would be a major dominatrix in the bedroom. She looks cold and she'd deliver that cold lovin' with absolute efficiency. Can't say that isn't an upside. But I don't know... I can't say that I find her hot. Beautiful, yes. Hot, sexy, smoldering, not as much. I know I'm not the only person who feels this way. I also know I might be completely alone.
What do you think of Joely Richardson?
