Last week was a toss up over whether Alexis Bledel
was hot or just pretty. Does it take a good role, great looks or killer talent to push you over the hotness boiling point? That's the question. Is the following beauty hot, cute, pretty or something in the "other" category? What is it that makes you lust after her (or conversely, makes you want to retch)? You tell me.
PCruz is another one of those chicks that I just can't put my finger on. In fact, I even hesitate to call her a chick. And no, I'm not going to go for the easy joke and call her chica. When she first started catching on in the U.S., I wasn't all that impressed with her. When she started dating Tom Cruise and popping up on the red carpet with him everywhere, I was even less turned on by her.
I guess one of the factors is that I've rarely seen photos of her where she isn't completely decked out and looking ready for the cameras. Her poses for the media are stiff and mannequin-like. I get this feeling as if she's a prude in real life and cares more about whether or not the sex will f*ck up her hair than actually putting herself into it. And that's a turn-off for me.
Does she dress up well? Absolutely. When they cake her down with make-up and she strikes that provocative look for the photographer, she can come off looking beautiful. In the end, however, I wonder how much of that beauty is true. Her body is seemingly killer in clothes, with her tits being pressed and shifted just so under her gowns but when she does nude scenes for films, they don't look like what was on the wrapper, you know? (Click here to see bare titties.)
The false advertising bugs me.
But enough about my opinion. Tell me... is Penelope Cruz hot? Pretty? Cute? All or none of the above and why? Let's hear it.
