For the most part, the consensus seemed to echo throughout the comments that Christina Ricci
is a hottie to a minor degree now that she's not as thick as she was back in the first few years of her legal-dom. I liked how last week had some good discussion going and I'm hoping I caught the tiger by the tail in how to replicate that effect. Choose someone whose beauty/sexiness/cuteness/hotness is flexible based on their personal appearances as well as their choice in movie roles. So, here we go...
I was a Reese diehard back in the day when she wowed me with her turn as a modern day Little Red Riding Hood in FREEWAY. Dropping "F"-bombs and shooting Keifer Sutherland, the movie wasn't destined for theaters like the other movie she co-starred in during 1996. The other, more well known (and more unintentionally laughable) flick was FEAR and we all remember what we were thinking during that roller coaster scene. From PLEASANTVILLE to ELECTION, Reese was hot to me when she was playing the innocent who really was a bad girl at heart.
Somewhere along the line she got knocked up (and I refuse to bash Phillippe, since I'm in the minority who believes that he's just as good of an actor as she is) and Reese's black sense of humour went out the window. Averaging no more than 2 films per year during the onset of the 00's (and some were questionable at that - anyone remember her turn as Nicky's mom in LITTLE NICKY?), Reese shrank away from the spotlight until coming out swinging in the biopic WALK THE LINE, for which she won a Best Actress Oscar.
Nowadays she's more motherly than MILFY, more recognized for screwing Jake Gyllenhaal than making quality films and more apt to look crappy at charity events than be dolled up for red carpet premieres. I understand that everyone has to grow up at some point, and I DO
thank her for that hot tub scene in LEGALLY BLONDE (filmed after she'd had her first kid, too... damn those bewbs looked good then...), but I pine for the Reese of yesteryear. She can be pretty, she can be cute, but somehow I doubt I'll ever see her as truly hot again.
Now it's your turn to weigh in your thoughts on Reese.
