So, yeah... I was a dumbass for even beginning to question if Charlize Theron
was hot or not. But if you don't ask, you'll never know. I'm sure that somewhere on this planet, there's a guy who thinks Charlize is fugly. Of course, that guy is probably into guys, but that's not saying that he doesn't exist. Another thing that may or may not exist? Aliens. Why do I bring that up? Well, this week's selection might give you an idea...
She started off so cute. No one knew who Katie Holmes was before she landed the role of Joey Potter on "Dawson's Creek," even though she'd had one bit role in THE ICE STORM prior to becoming one of the cornerstones of the WB teen drama line-up. She was whiny and whimpering on the show (from what I can remember, I didn't watch beyond when they added Kerr Smith to the show) and quite frankly, though cute, definitely not all that huge of a stand-out.
Katie was persistent in getting rid of that good girl image in the roles she chose to undertake on the big screen, however. She played variations of that bad girl who only looks like she's good (or the misunderstood bad girl) in DISTURBING BEHAVIOR and GO. It wasn't until I saw her bravely go topless in THE GIFT that I actually paid attention to Holmes. I sat there in disbelief, trying to determine how they could have pulled off a body double for her role as the scheming murdered Jessica King, rewatching the movie several times before convincing myself that it wasn't a movie magic optical illusion.
Well, we all know what's happened to Katie Holmes in recent years. I could take pot shots, make the same jokes that others have already made (and worse), but I think I'll refrain from that and just point out that at 28, it is a shame that Katie looks so much like a soccer mom already. As hard as she fought to stand out from her good girl beginnings, I'm just disappointed in her for not pushing more in that direction. She was cute, then she was hot and now... well...
But enough from me. Do you think Katie Holmes is hot?
