Everyone finished up with their Black Friday madness shopping, turkey binging and other forms of holiday debauchery? I can't say that I myself have fully recovered so I'm going to take this week's Hot or Not selection nice and easy. Whether or not you're up to speed for that, I certainly can't be held accountable for being able to predict.
I don't think that other than noticing that Romola is the lead female in this weekend's release, THE LAST DAYS ON MARS, I've given much pause to consider her. I know that I found her very cute in the one movie that I distinctly remember her from, DIRTY DANCING: HAVANA NIGHTS that yes, I watched because yes, I'm a freaking girl.
When I went to look Garai up I noticed that she's been in a number of movies that I should have recognized her from. ATONEMENT, AMAZING GRACE, ONE DAY, THE OTHER MAN... I guess she's been a side character in many films for quite some time. The more I read about her, the more interesting she became. An English lass who was born in Hong Kong when it still belonged to the Brits, an actress who managed to go back to school and gain her Master of Arts degree in English Literature, once considered for the role of Elizabeth Bennett in PRIDE & PREJUDICE, lost out to Kiera Knightley... and sadly, shares the exact same birth date as Adrianne Curry. I guess they all can't be winners.
Looks wise, I find Romola a conundrum. While she's got a fantastic body (tall but not too tall, curvy and still fit), her face is oddly sorta plain. If you were to change her coloring, her face bears a slight resemblance to Marion Cotillard, but the blonde hair and fair skin don't do that look justice. Romola has the appearance of an awesome looking girlfriend but she's not really rocking the hot, sexy thing.
What do you think of Romola Garai?
