Hot or Not: Nicole Ari Parker

06.09.2009by: Cherry Liquor

Later this week, there will be families around the states who will have screaming children dragging them to see Eddie Murphy's latest family pleaser, IMAGINE THAT. It made me start thinking about how when Eddie started out, it was as if he was taking the baton from Richard Pryor, as if only one black man could be funny and successful at the box office at a time. I then started thinking about one of his co-stars in this newest flick and how I wish there actually was more room at the top for every beautiful and talented person in general.

Nicole Ari Parker

For a hidden gem of a movie, try watching 1997's THE END OF VIOLENCE. It not only has Bill Pullman and Gabriel Byrne at their no-longer-wet-behind-the-ears hottest, it's also a fairly snappy commentary on violence in films in contrast to violence in real life. It's also where I remember first seeing stunner Nicole Ari Parker.

The next time most people saw her was as the token black actress for the hardcore genre in P.T. Anderson's BOOGIE NIGHTS. You can't help but yearn for this woman as she does what she knows how to do yet still searches for a purity of love that is seemingly out of her grasp due to her profession. Over the years, it's felt like a comparison to her life in movies, where she was told she wasn't black enough for some roles and too black for others. For over a decade, she's played on the fringes, always better than what has been asked of her.

Now married to actor Boris Kodjoe and the mother to their daughter Sophie, Parker has her own website where you can read about her struggle to raise a child with spina bifida, a birth defect affecting the spinal cord. Not something you'd hear much about on a Movie Hotties site, but it accounts for not as many fancy photoshoots of her for me to draw on. Instead, she inspires by helping to teach people about the misconceptions of the disorder and gives hope to those parents who might think that their world is going to come to an end. So basically, she's gorgeous and she's classy, all while rising above what has been expected of her.

Enough of my opinion. Your thoughts on Nicole Ari Parker?

Pretty eyes, and what looks like a nice body. Too bad her facial expressions make her look like she's having issues taking a $#!t. Not hot.
