Hot or Not: Noomi Rapace

Oct. 26, 2010by: Cherry Liquor

Unique beauty is a great thing. At least, when it comes to crafting an acting style that someone with extraordinary beauty doesn't get the opportunity to cultivate because everyone is taking their time, money and effort to cash in on the flawless face. As much as I am not immune to a pristine visage, I also find myself deeply obsessed with some of the more profound beauties in acting. I happen to like this week's selection a lot.

Noomi Rapace

It might be odd that I'm claiming to have such a deep affection for Rapace, considering that I haven't watched her as any other character other than Lisbeth Salander. It might help that the popularity of the original set of movies, crafted in Swedish as the books were created, has begun a demand for the 31-year old actress in more mainstream Hollywood films. Still, as much as I think of Lisbeth as being one of those impossible literary characters to bring to life on screen with 100% accuracy, Rapace gets pretty damn close.

I started reading up on her as soon as I found out that the success of her triple take in the GIRL movies landed her roles in the SHERLOCK HOLMES sequel as well as roles in the ALIEN prequel. Her mother was a popular Swedish actress and her father a Spanish Flamenco singer. More interesting to me was that when she married fellow actor Ola Rapace, she was Noomi Noren and he was Ola Norell. The pair simply decided to ditch both of their previous last names and adopt Rapace as their acting married name. (It translates into "bird of prey" from French.)

Rapace has described herself as being more girlie than Lisbeth Salander and figured that she wasn't going to fit into the role well. Most audience members have disagreed, turning the set of foreign films into box office winners in the states. With the release of THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET'S NEST coming out in America this weekend and a slew of projects on the horizon, will Noomi be coveted for her acting talents and exotic look?

What do you think of Noomi Repace?

not

Don't know her,so I'll have to base it off these pics. She looks over 40 and I may have reconsidered had she been,but for being 31 looks kind of rough to me with no figure

Unusual, and hot

She has a different face, which may not be for everybody but she's incredibly compelling. And when Roger Ebert says he's impressed by her acting chops, that's good enough for me.

Eh. She was TOO OLD to play Lisbeth Salander, which kept me from embracing her performance in those films, and otherwise she's nothing special.

Not mind blowingly hot, but she definitely has something intriguing about her.

I wouldn't quite say hot but she isn't ugly. I guess I would have to see her in some different roles.

This character is overrated in my opinion

Cherry, I normally like agreeing with you on things and I have a lot of respect for you but this is one of those cases where I'm going to voice an alternate opinion. I don't get the hype around that book, the Swedish movie adaptation, or the performance. I read the book first hoping for something different and foreign but it ended up being a typical generic crime thriller that there are a million of in the US. I thought all the characters were bland except for Lisbeth Salander, who was a
Cherry, I normally like agreeing with you on things and I have a lot of respect for you but this is one of those cases where I'm going to voice an alternate opinion. I don't get the hype around that book, the Swedish movie adaptation, or the performance. I read the book first hoping for something different and foreign but it ended up being a typical generic crime thriller that there are a million of in the US. I thought all the characters were bland except for Lisbeth Salander, who was a cartoon character. Then, I saw the movie and hated it too. Noomi Rapace's performance did nothing for me and I actually thought the guy who play the journalist did a better job. Noomi Rapace didn't have much of a personality in the movie and didn't fit the character I read in the book. She didn't look the part, (Salander being described as waifish) and she didn't act the part either. As for her being hot, she doesn't do much for me but I've only seen her as that one character. Those pictures show her looking different but don't change my mind. I think Rooney Mara is very hot though. And I think she's a very talented actress. I recently read the book, Winter's Bone, and loved it. The main character in that, Ree Dolly, is excellent and is a female character who is far more deserving of hype. I just don't get the Lisbeth Salander praise. If someone would care to explain to me why they think she's such a great character, I'd be interested in your perspective. Just post it as a reply to my comment.
