Ever met that chick who never is the chick that you thought you wanted in the first place and before you know it, she's got you convinced to do all kinds of crazy stuff that you'd've never dreamed of doing? It doesn't matter if you're a guy who's nailing her or her friend that she's proclaiming is your BFF, the girl is poison... and yet you enjoy every minute of it. This week's Hot or Not selection seems to have banked her career on this type of role.
When THIRTEEN came out, people kept making happy noises about how good Evan Rachel Wood was in it, overlooking the fact that Reed was the best part of the movie, probably because they just didn't like her bad influence character. But I knew girls like Evie when I was younger. There was something about that kind of girl that made me want to understand why they were such a crazy bitch. And dammit, it was fun hanging out with them, the popo on your tail or not.
Reed really disturbed me in MINI'S FIRST TIME, sinking her teeth into Alec Baldwin in a manner in which I think his ex-wife, Kim Basinger wishes she could have. Prior to that she was the hot sister of Tony Alva in the LORDS OF DOGTOWN movie, proving that it is indeed fun to have thoughts about banging your friend's sister.
Now one of the twinkling vampires in the TWILIGHT series, we'll watch Reed get blonde and fang it up in NEW MOON
this November, relegated to a smaller role but still spotlighting her bitchy nature. Since I haven't read the books, I have no idea if her character gets more screen time than she did in the first movie, but personally, I hope she does. Reed is the kind of chick who isn't gorgeous and isn't even conventionally pretty but that type of hottie that you could go medieval over. Her imperfections make her nearly perfect.
