With the release of the final TWILIGHT installment hitting theaters this upcoming weekend, you're probably looking for something else to watch, should you decide to head out to the box office. If you're not interested in watching SKYFALL again, you could scour the indie market and see if PRICE CHECK is playing anywhere near you. In the meantime, why don't we discuss that film's star, shall we?
It's probably a fetish of some sort, but there's something about girls who wear their athletic socks all the way up to their knees that I find sexy. At least, that's why I think I paid such close attention to Parker Posey in the first movie I recall seeing her in, DAZED & CONFUSED. As the queen Bee-yotch of her high school, Darla, she screamed at the incoming freshmen to fry like little pieces of piggy bacon and I swear there were hearts of love that floated around my head when I witnessed it. I've been following her career closely ever since.
I tend to place a great deal of emphasis on a hottie's appeal to my personal preference on whether or not I find them to be talented or convincing at what they do. Take Posey in SUPERMAN RETURNS for just a brief moment. Consider that she was in the movie with Kate Bosworth, a chick who at one point was supposed to be megahot (whatever happened to that trajectory?). I would choose Posey as Kitty Kowalski 10,000 times over Bosworth's Lois Lane. Yes, a lot of that had to do with the fact that P.P. is a great actress who distracted from otherwise horrible dialog, etc... but she's also a really cute minx in the flick as well.
She looks good with long hair, short hair, a lot of makeup, no makeup at all. She can be funny, obnoxious, bitchy, stately as an actress, convincingly playing ANY character that she gets booked as. Her body is at best average and while her looks overall are meant to morph slickly from different role to different role, I always gravitate to Parker Posey like a moth to a flame. In my book, that's Hot Central.
What do you think of Parker Posey?
