As someone was so kind to alert me that I'd missed the Tuesday Hot or Not post, I figured I would squeeze it in with Thursday's Battle of the Babes. Can't hurt having Thursday be the day for opinions, considering how boring and lazy Thursdays usually are. If you forgive me for forgetting Tuesday and allow me to be lazy today, we can all play sloths together. Oh, and I would say that last week's selection, Chloe Sevigny
was about half and half on the hotness ranking.
The first time that I remember seeing Michelle, she was playing Harriet the Spy, so it's not like that time counts. And if you put a gun to my head and asked me if she was one of those cute little girls that you feel dirty about opening admitting she'll be hot later on, I would be frank and say that I thought she was below average looking for a child star. Then, as most people know, came Buffy.
Blowing past her early teen years, Michelle decided to throw her childhood image to the wolves and appeared topless (if not actually bared onscreen but rather hinted at) in EUROTRIP. She seemed a little on the skinny side to me at the time (I love me some healthy looking bewbies), but overall her looks were surprising in their maturity. She'd come into her own.
Now 23 years old and all woman, Michelle has gone backwards, appearing in 4 episodes of "Gossip Girl" as a teenager. But I hear that show is pretty racy, even by today's nasty reality show habits. She recently completed a role in 17 AGAIN, that movie with Zac Efron which will be a rip-off of BIG but suck. (Be honest, you know you're already thinking it.) I think that as she continues to find her footing with acting, she has the potential to be really hot in the future. For now, I find her very interesting and worth watching, but still in the cute realm.
Your thoughts on Michelle Trachtenberg? (Try learning to spell that without double checking.)
