I usually face arguments when I talk about this week's Hot or Not actress in question. Everyone from strangers to my mom will argue with me about her looks or her acting chops and I'd like to get a good answer to the question of her value. So of course, the best place to turn for an unbiased, educated opinion is that of the JoBlo Schmoes! (Pardon my eye roll, I'm just playing with you, I swears!)
I used to watch "Dawson's Creek" when it first came on and I was so damn thankful when they added Williams' "slutty" character of Jen to the show. It gave it some polarity and took the weight off the shoulders of the "good girl" to have to always pretend to be so good. She had someone to hate, as did most of the audience who watched that show. Personally, I think if you can get a large group of people to hate a character you're playing, you just might be doing something very right.
During her time on "Creek," Williams decided to go zig zag in her choice of roles, with everything from a budding scream queen in HALLOWEEN: H2O to a silly hippy in DICK to the librarian in a small town who develops a crush on a quiet dwarf who moves into town in THE STATION AGENT. Sometimes Michelle was a drifting through character, making a small mark. But in those times, she always seemed to make sure they mattered.
Michelle Williams... hot or not?
