There's something about certain hotties which catches my attention and never lets go. Isla Fisher, while in the midst of a resurgence of redheaded actress popularity, is my main bitch. (No offense to Amy Adams, but she's still second to Isla as far as redheads go.) Then you have these other actresses who live off their hype, but I question whether or not they're really all that great. Then you have the ones struggling to set themselves apart from the crowd and I struggle to remember them. Perhaps I'm wrong on that level for this week's Hot or Not selection, you tell me.
Where I remember Rachel first (after double checking her IMDB profile) is as the bitch in THE WOODS, a low budget flick that I watch because I watch everything
Bruce Campbell related. And you know what? Even though I couldn't've told you who that actress' name was if you asked me yesterday, I still would have told you her bitchy performance was on par with Patricia Clarkson's, and that's really saying something.
I didn't fully register Nichols as a hottie in my brain until I started doing some math (hey, that's hard stuff, man!) and realized that she was the hot as sin babysitter in THE AMITYVILLE HORROR remake. Ah yes... Lisa. The pot smoking babysitter who is really bad at her job but really, really good at looking hot in that bare mid drift shirt. Now that I'm sitting here thinking about it, perhaps she DOES stick out.
So, here she is now in 2009, this time heading into bigger roles in movies like STAR TREK (although green make-up be damned, I couldn't tear my attention away from how hot Chris Pine was) and as Scarlett in G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA
. She's got a great body and at times a good looking face, even if it seems a little too forgettable, especially when she's changing hair colors. But does she have that certain something to make her career last longer than a stick of Juicy Fruit gum? Only time will tell.
What do you think of Rachel Nichols?
